The 2016 NFL season is eight weeks old and the time is now to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire in order to make a playoff push. Every year a no name blows up in over the first few weeks of the season and ends up being a top-20 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire Wide Receivers for Week 9.

His nine catches and 13 targets from Kirk Cousins were both season highs, and he seems to have found a large role within Washington’s offense. The Redskins throw the ball a lot, meaning he should see a significant number of targets each week.
After a bye week, the Redskins have a tough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, but after that they have matchups with the Green Bay Packers (14th in pass defense) and the Dallas Cowboys (15th). Pick him up now if you’ll need a receiver within the next few weeks. — Christoph Ludwig
