Week 9 is here and it’s time for you to take control of your Fantasy football League. Here are five bold calls that will help you win your matchup.
The beginning of the second half of the NFL season means the Fantasy Football playoffs are growing closer and closer. If you’re not in position to make your league’s postseason, it’s time to start making some bold moves.
Lucky for you, we’re here with five bold predictions that you can act on this week. You’ll probably have to make some waiver wire moves or trades to take advantage of this intelligence, but each selection will offer you significant value.
Without delay, let’s jump right into this week’s predictions. We start with a wide receiver who’s going to go from the bench to a clear starter after this week.
5. Devante Parker will perform like a No. 1 wide receiver
Parker isn’t an unknown in fantasy circles, but he’s played like one for most of this season. He clearly isn’t Adam Gase’s favorite player, but the Dolphins head coach is running out of options at wide receiver.
That means Parker should get plenty of snaps this week against the Jets. Whether Ryan Tannehill or Brock Osweiler is under center, the Dolphins are going to have success throwing the ball. Parker is the guy positioned to be the biggest beneficiary.
We thought long and hard about projecting him to be a top-10 player this week, but we’re not prepared to go quite that far. Instead, we believe he’ll be a comfortable starter at wide receiver in virtually any league. If he’s available on your waiver wire, stop what you are doing and go pick him up. If he’s languishing on someone else’s bench, now’s the time to buy him on the cheap.
