With that in mind, here is a look at the latest waiver wire moves to make for your fantasy football team heading into Week 9 of the NFL season:Fantasy Football Authentic Carlos Dunlap Jersey Week 9 AddsSeahawks WR David MooreBreak out the Seahawks, who have now won four of their last five games following an 0-2 start. A big reason for their emergence has been second-year receiver David Moore. He’s caught at least two passes in his last four games (13 targets) after getting just one target in his first three games. But Moore finally had a breakout game against the Lions, catching four balls for 97 yards (4 targets) and a score. He now has four touchdowns over his last three games and would be a great addition for receiver-needy fantasy owners. Raiders RB Doug MartinWith Marshawn Lynch now on IR, the Raiders’ backfield got a big shakeup heading into the second half of the regular season. While Jalen Richard is the better back to own in PPR leagues (8 grabs for 80 yards vs. the Colts), Doug Martin is getting most of the carries, making him slightly more valuable in standard leagues. Against the Colts, Martin went for 72 yards on just 13 carries in a game Oakland trailed in for much of the second half. He’s worth adding if you’re in need of running back depth going forward. Panthers TE Greg OlsenThis is a ‘captain obvious’ add, but after Greg Olsen suffered his foot injury, the second major foot issue he’s had since 2017, many fantasy owners dropped the reliable tight end. However, Olsen returned to action sooner than expected, and he finally got back in rhythm with four grabs for 56 yards and a score vs. the Ravens. As of Sunday, he was still free in about 20 percent of CBS leagues, so go do a quick scan and see if you’re lucky enough to add Olsen to your team this week. Dolphins WR DeVante Parker Now healthy and getting a healthy amount of snaps, Devante Parker is becoming a force again for the Dolphins. Against the Texans, Parker went off for 134 yards on six grabs (9 targets). When healthy, Parker has been a worthy WR2/flex play for fantasy owners. Health has been his main downfall, so as long as he has that, he’s worth rostering in all leagues. Bucs QB Ryan FitzpatrickWith Jameis Winston melting down, watch out for Ryan Fitzpatrick, who torched the Bengals for 194 yards and two scores in essentially just a quarter of work. Fitzpatrick also has some favorable matchups against Washington, Carolina, New York, New Orleans and San Francisco coming up. There’s also a Week 17 matchup with the putrid Falcons if that’s when you have your fantasy championship and your regular starter doesn’t play much, if at all that week (think Jared Goff, Patrick Mahomes and Kirk Cousins). If he’s named the starter this week, Fitzmagic is worth picking up if you’re in need of quarterback help. Conditional Add: Broncos WR Courtland SuttonWith the trade deadline on Tuesday, there’s a chance the Broncos trade one of Emmanuel Sanders or Demaryius Thomas. But even with those two still in Denver Authentic Vontaze Burfict Jersey , rookie Courtland Sutton is starting to emerge. He caught three passes on four targets for 78 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. He’s got just 17 grabs in eight games this season, so it’s hard to add him this week unless one of Sanders/Thomas is traded. If a trade happens, then Sutton suddenly becomes one of the hottest adds to make this week. Conditional Add: Bucs WR Chris GodwinAnother conditional add based on a potential trade is Chris Godwin, who could be in line for a bigger workload if DeSean Jackson is dealt (he’s requested a trade). Godwin had good chemistry with Fitzpatrick earlier in the season with 13 grabs on 20 targets over his first three games, so if Fitzpatrick is named the starter and Jackson is dealt, this becomes a sneaky fantasy add to make this week. Fantasy Football Week 9 DropsBengals TE CJ UzomahThe Bengals just can’t find a tight end to feature with Tyler Eifert now out for the season. Initially, it looked like CJ Uzomah was going to be the guy, but since Eifert went down, Uzomah has caught just 11 passes for 116 yards and one score. That included zero grabs on four targets against the Buccaneers, a game in which rookie tight end Jordan Franks actually made a 32-yard grab. You can safely drop Uzomah heading into the bye week. Jaguars RB Carlos HydeIt’s been a rough fall for Carlos Hyde, who fell out of favor in Cleveland, then was traded to the Jaguars for insurance as Leonard Fournette battles his hamstring injury. But even after the move, Hyde has been a ghost while TJ Yeldon got most of the touches. Hyde has just 45 yards in two games, and the Jaguars are now on the bye week with Fournette set to return soon after. It’s time to part ways with Hyde. Eagles RB Corey ClementAnother running back heading into his bye that needs to be cut is Corey Clement, who has fallen behind Wendell Smallwood and even Josh Adams in Philly’s backfield. Clement had just 15 touches over his last two games for a grand total of 27 yards and has just two total scores this season. You can safely cut him. Bucs QB Jameis WinstonIt’s been a rough go of it for Jameis Winston since returning from his three-game ban. That came to a head Sunday when he tossed four picks against the Bengals, including a pick-six to rookie safety Jessie Bates. He was also sacked five times and was just a disaster on offense, leading to his benching in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick. Cut bait with Winston ASAP.Bengals Weekly Lineman: Alex Redmond’s aggression under the microscope The Cincinnati Bengals and Atlanta Falcons are opposites in terms of team success, evident by their current records. But when they faced off against one another on Sunday, they looked like mirror images of each other.Both offenses had the ball for nearly identical times and ran almost the same amount of plays. Cincinnati had possession for 30:38 compared to 29:22 for Atlanta, and Cincinnati’s offense took 73 snaps to Atlanta’s 70. They each netted similar total first downs (30 for Cincinnati, 25 for Atlanta) and both ran almost the same percentage of successful plays (53.7% for Cincinnati, 56.1% for Atlanta).The offensive explosion that ensued inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium spurred from each defense vastly relying on their pass rush to mask their glaring weaknesses off the ball. If it wasn’t for each team’s front four, the total points might’ve eclipsed 100. Eventually, drives did get stalled from protection issues, and each of three sacks from Cincinnati’s defense made significant impacts on the respective drives they occurred in. But we’re going to focus in one only one of the three sacks Atlanta’s defense was responsible for, and a few other reps from arguably the most polarizing player the Bengals have started all year long.Watching right guard Alex Redmond isn’t painful by any means, you can tell the effort is there on every snap, and that intangible quality is probably why Marvin Lewis holds him inhigh regard. Redmond also has established what he’s good at and what’s he not good at in a very short amount of time.I’m prohibited from telling you how many pressures Redmond has given this season up according to Pro Football Focus, but I promise you it is a lot compared to the vast majority of other starting guards in the league. This rep (and those below) backs up the objectivity of that statement.Redmond is an aggressive pass blocker. He consistently shoots out his outside arm as a pseudo-buffer to establish control of the set http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/michael-johnson-jersey , but there’s not a lot of power behind it and his body lean and inside arm don’t aid him when he needs to reset if that outside punch fails. It happens even on pass sets that aren’t meant to matter for more than two seconds.I’ve given credit to Redmond for trimming down a noticeable amount over the offseason to help him increase his movement ability, but quick feet don’t do anything if you can’t anchor with them. This time, Redmond tries to hug the rusher and absorb the bull rush, and fails to roll his hips into the block. His back isn’t straight up, but he fails to establish any form of leverage and gets driven back into quarterback Andy Dalton and allows the sack.Redmond goes back on the attack here with that outside arm-lead jump set. His adversary, Grady Jarrett, expects it the whole way and gives the Bengals a taste of their own medicine. Jarrett stands level with Geno Atkins at 6-1, and is four inches shorter than Redmond. So many times Cincinnati has benefitted off of Atkins’ bull rushes that have been unstoppable because of his lower leg explosion and leverage resulting in his height. Jarrett charges into Redmond with a purpose. Driving up into Redmond’s frame, he displaces him with his own version of Carl Lawson’s inside arm shot put move. Redmond gets stood straight up and turned around completely, and Jarrett disrupts the integrity of the pocket. Luckily, Dalton is able to make a great escape and throw after Redmond manages to recover in the only way he can.The discussion of what happens to Redmond and Trey Hopkins when Billy Price comes back is worth having. This play is a good example of why both have a case for staying on the field. Redmond quickly locks in on the linebacker and climbs to him with efficiency. Hopkins is able to get the reach block off the snap in perfect unison with the rest of the offensive line and get out in front of the shaded nose tackle. His work at center hasn’t been perfect, but for never having played their for an extended period of time, he’s performed admirably. Some of his best work occurred on plays like the one below as well.I love Montgomery Inn’s ribs, those from Cincinnati know what I’m talking about. Hopkins gets himself a full slab of ribs on this play after Redmond is made a fool of.All game long Redmond had been baiting his opposition to the inside off his pass sets, on the final drive, he gets caught in the act. The Falcons did a great job of planning for Redmond and his tendencies in pass protection and got the better of him for four quarters. It’s yet to be known when Price will return to the field, but he will shortly and he will be starting. Odds are he’ll be back at center where he’s been since he got to Cincinnati. That would likely mean Hopkins would return to the bench as the emergency interior backup. But I don’t think that would yield the best result.We always talk about wanting to get the best five guys on the field, but that doesn’t work of you’re playing certain lineman out of position. The Bengals can’t move Price out of the center spot if they don’t have someone who can play at his level. They do have that in Hopkins, and he also does certain things better than the rookie.If you keep Hopkins at center, you can play Price at a position where his tape at Ohio State was at its highest quality. Some had projected Price as a guard because of how he played there earlier in his collegiate career. Most of Price’s issues involve him dealing with the primary action of playing center: snapping the ball. These issues can be corrected over time, but time may not be a luxury the Bengals offense can afford.This offense is one of the best in the league, but we saw it struggle still because of pass protection issues outside of Clint Boling and Hopkins and the results were almost fatal. If you bring back Price, you’re not making anything better — if you replace Price with a liability while also playing him in a position he’s known to be adequate at, you have something else entirely.Ultimately, this is all wishful thinking and I don’t expect it to happen. The Bengals seem bullish on Redmond and will likely see how he responds to a rough first quarter of the season. But there’s an enticing opportunity in front of them, and the tape should tell them all they need to know to take advantage of it.
