The bye weeks are back, meaning teams (maybe even yours) are scrambling for potential last-minute waiver adds to bolster their rosters. If you missed out on some of the top waiver picks and are in need of a streamer at the WR position this week, then look no further than the fantasy football week 9 WR streamers options below.
Pick the right fantasy football streamer option to get the win this week and continue down the path of fantasy greatness, which ends with you hoisting your league’s trophy, championship belt or champ chain.
Players must be owned in less than 60 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues to be included in the fantasy football Week 9 WR streamers column. All ownerships for players will be provided and will reflect that of Wednesday morning, once waivers are processed.
Fantasy Football Week 9 WR Streamers
Michael Wilson Fantasy Outlook (8.4%)
Michael Wilson has gone from a stash candidate to a fantasy football Week 9 WR streamers candidate for needy teams suffering from injuries or bye weeks. Wilson caught four passes Sunday while adding 58 yards. Even with the Josh Dobbs trade to the Vikings, Wilson still holds flex value with Clayton Tune under center. He will jump up to WR3 or WR4 status if Kyler Murray returns to action. He’ll face off against the Browns in week 9.
Quentin Johnston Fantasy Outlook (31%)
Quentin Johnston finally showed up in Week 8, catching five of his six targets for 50 yards in the Chargers’ win on Sunday Night Football. With Josh Palmer questionable and Keenan Allen drawing the tougher matchups against Sauce Gardner or DJ Reed in Week 9 against the New York Jets, Johnston is a post-hype streamer option for a game that should remain close on Monday night.
Underdog Fantasy is a new type of DFS that combines the fun of season-long drafts with daily fantasy sports. Aside from their fun, addictive draft mode, Underdog Fantasy also has pick’em player props for many different sports and athletes!
Rashid Shaheed Fantasy Outlook (24.3%)
Rashid Shaheed caught all three of his targets Sunday for 153 yards and a touchdown. When a player averages 51 yards per catch like that and has the ability to score on the deep ball at any given moment, they instantly become a weekly fantasy football streamer option. Shaheed will look for more big plays in a Week 9 matchup against a Bears team that ranks middle-of-the-pack against wideouts.
Honorable Mention For Fantasy Football Week 9 WR Streamers
We mentioned last week that we’d include Josh Downs in each weekly streamer article as long as he was below 60% ownership. He is one of Gardner Minshew’s favorite targets and is a weekly starter.
