Waiver Wire--Week 9


Jordan Scarlett, RB-Florida
Not only has Scarlett scored in six consecutive games, but the sophomore back received 26 carries in a 24-10 win over Georgia and looked like the Gators’ feature back.

 

Kennedy McCoy, RB-West Virginia
Starting RB Rushel Shell suffered an injury in Saturday’s loss at Oklahoma State, which resulted in more playing time for Justin Crawford and McCoy.  If Shell’s injury keeps him sidelined for a while, expect the freshman back to assume a greater role in the offense.

 

John Kelly, RB-Tennessee
After Saturday’s loss to South Carolina, there is a lot of frustration around Jalen Hurd’s lack of production, but there is hype and hope for the future with sophomore John Kelly.   

 

Rico Dowdle, RB-South Carolina
The freshman back has performed well in back-to-back games and has found the end zone in three consecutive games.  Dowdle was impressive in Saturday’s win over Tennessee, rushing for 127 yards and a score on 27 carries.

 

Dorian Brown, RB-Ohio
Brown has been a fringe waiver wire addition for two weeks, but after rushing for 212 yards and a touchdown against Toledo on Thursday, he is now a must-add in full-FBS formats.

 

Samajie Grant, RB/WR-Arizona
We tipped you off last week that Grant and Zach Green were listed atop the Wildcats’ Week 9 RB depth chart, and it was Grant that got most of the work in Arizona’s loss to Stanford, rushing for 64 yards on 19 carries.

 

Boston Scott. RB-Louisiana Tech
The Bulldogs’ coaching staff said that Scott would get more playing time, but little did we expect him to get more work than Jarred Craft.  After rushing for 137 yards on 15 carries against Rice on Saturday night, Craft’s owners would be wise to claim Scott and sit on both of them for a week to see how the rotation plays out moving forward into weeks 11 & 12.

 

Da’Leon Ward, RB-Texas Tech
The freshman made his debut two weeks ago against West Virginia and scored his first touchdown in Week 8 against Oklahoma.  On Saturday, Ward got 2015 DeAndre Washington-type work (23 carries for 98 yards, 8 rec. for 49 yards) in a 27-24 OT win at TCU and has potential to be the biggest sleeper on this list over the final 1/3 of the fantasy season.
