Injuries and Waiver Wire week 9 2022
NFL WEEK 8 INJURIES
Josh Allen (Elbow) - Allen has some minor elbow pain, but nothing major.
Chris Evans (Knee) - Evans could not return after injuring his knee.
Aaron Jones (Ankle) - Jones injured his ankle and could not return.
Craig Reynolds (Ribs) - Reynolds left the game with a rib injury.
Evan Engram (Back) - Engram injured his back on Sunday.
WEEK 10 WAIVER WIRE:
Jimmy Garoppolo (SF) - At just 36.0% owned in NFL fantasy leagues, a sneaky add at the QB position is Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo has scored at least 16.00 fantasy points over his last three games, has already had his bye, and has a great upcoming schedule. The 49ers face off against the Chargers at home, then travel to Arizona, followed by a home stand vs the Saints Dolphins and Buccaneers over the next several weeks. There should be plenty of scoring opportunities for Garoppolo.
Daniel Jones (NYG)
Isiah Pacheco (KC) - The Chiefs made a change at their RB position in week seven, naming seventh-round rookie RB Isiah Pacheco the starter for their week seven game. In his first game as a starter, Pacheco had eight rushes for 43 yards. KC had their bye in week eight, but this news is still relevant. It may still be a committee in KC for the time being, but Pacheco should not be on waiver wires after this news. I expect Pacheco to eventually gain more touches over time.
Rachaad White (TB) - Buccaneers' starting RB Leonard Fournette has started to show some downside in recent weeks, and perhaps this is the time for the third-round pick, White, to start to grab some more touches. White actually led Tampa in rushing in week nine, gaining 27 yards on eight carries. He also added three receptions for seven yards. He's not quite startable in fantasy right now but could be a factor down the stretch.
Kenyan Drake (BAL), Kyren Williams (LAR)
Josh Palmer (LAC) - Chargers top outside WR in Mike Williams suffered an ankle sprain in week seven and will miss a few weeks. Keenan Allen missed week nine nursing his injury. It's now up to Josh Palmer, and the rest of the Chargers receivers to fill both Allen and Williams' void. Palmer was a former 2021 third-round pick and has shown upside this season when given the opportunity. In games with at least eight targets, Palmer has scored 13+ fantasy points. Specifically, in week two, Palmer scored 13.0 fantasy points @ KC, 15.9 fantasy points vs JAX, and 14.7 fantasy points vs DEN. In week nine, Palmer came through with a 10-8-106-yard performance, for 18.60 fantasy points. The Chargers had eight bye and have a nice schedule and some potential shoot outs coming up with games vs SF, KC and ARZ coming up over the next four weeks.
Ron'Dale Moore (ARI) - Rondale Moore has been a relatively steady producer of fantasy points over the last month. He scored 10.90 fantasy points in week six, 4.10 fantasy points in week seven (his lone down week), 23.40 and 14.90 fantasy points in weeks eight and nine. At least until Marquise Brown returns, Rondale Moore should see plenty of volume as the slot receiver for the Cardinals offense. It's also worth noting that the Cardinals do not have a bye until week 13, so we can use him for a few weeks with the following games on his schedule: @LA, vs SF, vs LAC.
Donovan Peoples-Jones (CLE) - If I told you that Donovan Peoples-Jones has scored more than 10 fantasy points per game in four of the last five weeks, would you believe me? Well, it's true. His lowest over that span was week five when DPJ had just 9.00 fantasy points vs the Chargers. He's operating as the WR2 for the Browns and shown steady production of late with Brissett. When DeShaun Watson returns, the upside could be much higher for Peoples-Jones. The Browns have already had their bye week, which is a plus.
Zay Jones (JAX)
Greg Dulcich (DEN) - Dulcich was activated off of IR in week six and totaled 12.40 fantasy points. In week seven, he totaled 11.10 fantasy points. The fantasy goodness continued in week eight, where Dulcich led the Broncos in receiving, gathering four receptions for 87 yards. The Broncos had their bye in week nine, so he may have been forgotten about. If you're looking for a fix at the position, take a look at the rookie.
Cade Otton (TB)
