2019 FANTASY FOOTBALL, WEEK NINE WAIVER WIRE
One of my favorite times of the year is upon us. The Monster Mash is heavy in the rotation this week along with many childhood Halloween music favorites (my co-workers despise me around Holidays). I love All Hallows’ Eve since my days as a youth creating havoc in the streets of my community, to visiting friends at UCSB for craziness on Isla Vista and the raging parties we threw at ASU. I applaud the NFL for the stinker of a game that is on the slate for this Thursday, the 49ers travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals. My family and friends will be out on the local streets with a posse of kids in tow, Radio Flyer wagon stuffed with ‘parent juice’ and a speaker blasting my favorite ghoulish tunes. It ain’t gonna be a party for the Cardinals on Halloween night as the Niners might be doing “the worm” (ala Aaron Jones) all the way back to the Bay Area. Mr. Jones was freed Sunday against the Chiefs and scored 41.6 points in PPR format. It has been some time since we have had a Packers player go for over 150 yards and two touchdowns (could have been three TDS, but Mr. Jones stepped on the sideline and it was called back after review). In Week 16 of the 2016 season against Minnesota, Jordy Nelson went 9 for 154 and two touchdowns. One thing remains constant, Aaron Rodgers is good at football.
In Week Nine we have four teams on a bye: Bengals, Falcons, Rams & Saints. A handful of injuries to keep note on: James Conner (shoulder), Matt Breida (Ankle), Jeff Wilson (Head, stinger?), Brandon Cooks (2nd Concussion of season), Miles Sanders (shoulder) and Dede Westbrook (neck, shoulder). Today is the NFL trade deadline and yesterday we saw Kenyon Drake dished to AZ. Are more moves on the horizon? Here are some fellas worth looking into for Waiverland.
