Scouting the Wire for Week 9

Team getting a little stale? Need some fresh meat to run out there on Sunday? It's time to hit the wire and see what improvements we can make for week 9 of the NFL season.

Kansas City WR J.Baldwin - The rookie looks to be healthy now and he provides a big target opposite Bowe for Cassell. The schedule for the Chiefs over the next few weeks looks great for fantasy so take a chance on Baldwin especially in keeper leagues.

Tenn.Titans RB - Javon Ringer - Now is a full fledged split with CJ2K Ringer can catch the ball and provide a spark to your fantasy team. Ringer is not an elite talent, but at this stage of the year bye week fill in's at RB are hard to find.

N.E.Patriots RB Kevin Faulk - fresh off the PUP list Faulk came out looking pretty good and could provide a nice backup RB slot on your fantasy team. I prefer to pick him up in PPR's.

Eagles TE Brent Celek - You may not get this past Sunday's numbers out of Celek every week, but it is interesting to note his high targets the last two Eagles games. If you took a chance on SF TE Delanie Walker throw him back and snag up Celek and at least wait and see.

Dallas Cowboy WR Laurent Robinson - In deeper leagues Robinson is worth a look. Miles Austin owners are cursing the ground that this guy walks on due to J.Garrett's odd call of putting Austin in the slot last week and running Robinson out on the outside opposite Dez Bryant. Keep and eye on this...if it continues he is worth a look due to Dallas' fairly good fantasy schedule down the stretch.

If you are looking for a QB Matt Cassell can be found on many a waiver wire and has a very easy schedule over the next few weeks. Others you can look for are Sam Bradford who has been mostly dropped across the board and has a good 2nd half schedule as well as K.Kolb who has a good matchup in week 9 vs Sam's Rams and a few more down the stretch that should have his 2nd half numbers looking better as well.

Time to sure up your handcuffs...Kendell Hunter and B.Tate, Ronnie Brown, Monterio Hardesty and others are floating around the wire right now with most managers crunched for roster space due to the bye weeks. If you did not draft your handcuff and have the space for them now...go out and get them to provide yourself some security down the stretch. Take this opportunity, this second chance to secure you backups.

If there is someone you are targeting in leagues right now not on our list please post it in the comments and tell us why you are looking at that player.
