1 Player to Add, Drop, and Swap Ahead of Week 9 in Fantasy Football!

We are getting down to the nitty gritty in fantasy football and its time to hunt names on that all-important waiver wire. Below, I've got couple of players you should take a look at adding and dropping before the games start on Thursday...1 name for each and then a larger breakdown further below!

Add ‘em- Will Levis- How can we not add this guy after what he did on Sunday? Beautiful, effortless deep passes. He’s got DeAndre Hopkins activated – and I don’t think it’s a total fluke, atlanta’s defense has been pretty good this year – and what I saw on Sunday was what I saw from him @ Kentucky that made me fall in love with him as a prospect. So it was more of a confirmation bias Sunday for me than anything, but he’s a must-add – because if he does it again on Thursday, the conversation becomes – do we start the guy? Not a lot of QB’s on the wire we can say that about.

Drop ‘em- Tank Bigsby- I’ve been holding and holding on this guy, thinking this would be the perfect lotto ticket if Travis Etienne were to go down…I’m just not sure that’s the case. The dude barely gets involved and everytime he does, he fumbles the football. If Etienne were to go down, obviously he would get more run, but he hasn’t shown he’s reliable enough to be THE guy.

Swap ‘em- Zack Moss- I feel like he still has a little bit of value, maybe you can pick up a replacement for a position on a bye week, or upgrade at WR if you need it. He’s still working in with Jonathan Taylor, but every week, JT gets more and more work. Soon enough, Moss will just be a high-priced hand cuff, get off him while you can. Disclaimer: At the right price.

More names to consider...

RB- Leonard Fournette, Devin Singletary, and Royce Freeman

Not exactly league winners here. I will say, add Zach Charbonnet if he’s available – but guess is that he’s not. But among these 3, Fournette is worth some speculation – the bills have wanted to get tougher between the tackles for years, so if Fournette pops early, I could see him really breaking in to james cook’s workload.

Singeltary and Pierce are essentially in a time share right now. 12 touches a piece on Sunday. He’s not a specatular player, but he can get the job done for you in deeper leagues.

And then Royce freeman, 2nd week in a row where he’s involved in the rams offense, and that wasn’t exactly a run friendly game script. He's rushed for 110 yards and one score on 21 carries over his past two games…so you have to like that.

WR- Jayden Reed  

I’m back to where I was before Christian Watson returned from injury, I think he might be their best receiver. 4 catches, 83 yards, 20 yards per catch…he’s explosive, great in the open field, and he’s a crisp route runner. They’ve simply got to get him more involved.

TE- Trey McBride  

An absolute must-add, whether its Clayton Tune at QB or whoever. He’s heavily involved, picking up right where Zach Ertz left off. Trey caught 10 passes for 95 yards and a touchdown, he did so against a tough Ravens defense…and that outing was good enough for the fourth-best score by any tight end this season.

DST- Rams/Vikings

Really pick your poison here because you could hit or get burned by both. The Rams just gave up 40 to the Cowboys and the Vikings defense hasn’t been outstanding this year. But, both have characteristics I like, and most importantly, great matchups. The Rams get to chase down Jordan Love all day and the Vikings get Desmond Ridder – also, Minnesota, blitzing like crazy, and its working – 10 sacks in their last 3 games.
