Week 9 Waiver Wire TEs

Week eight is almost behind us and some of you are starting to appreciate that this is a passing league.  Yet you can’t help but wonder why you are not allowed to pass on picking a tight end. Some of you thought Jack Doyle would take a backseat to Eric Ebron upon his return. And you were wrong. Some of you thought Cameron Brate was the tight end to own in Tampa Bay. And you were wrong. Some of you thought fantasy football could be fun. And oh boy were you wrong. If you have read my waiver wire articles before, you know I don’t believe in burning your waiver priority on tight ends. They are the hardest position to predict. But if you insist on wasting everyone’s time, there are plenty of waiver wire tight end options available to disappoint you in new and exciting ways. If I don’t mention someone whom you think I should be talking about, just know there are many reasons why I overlooked them: Maybe they are owned in most leagues. Maybe they are so bad I don’t even consider them. Maybe it’s because your opinions cannot be trusted. After all, you are here. So let us examine what our best waiver wire tight end options for week nine are.

Week 9 Waiver Wire TEs

Jack DoyleOwned in 30% of leagues – Jack Doyle has been hurt for so long, people have forgotten that he is actually a pretty good tight end.  In week eight, Jack Doyle gave fantasy owners a little reminder to the tune of 6 catches for 70 yards and 1 touchdown.  If you need help from week 9 waiver wire TEs , you aren’t going to find a better option than Jack Doyle.

Chris HerndonOwned in 6% of leagues – Last week, I wrote about how Chris Herndon has been getting more opportunities in the Jets passing game. In week eight, he continued that trend with 1 catch for 16 yards and 1 touchdown. With how barren the list of week 9 waiver wire TEs is, Chris Herndon is one of the best options available. But he’s still bad.

Jordan ThomasOwned in 0% of leagues – Jordan Thomas had an impressive 4 catches for 29 yards and 2 touchdowns in week eight.  However, he is only relevant while Ryan Griffin is out sick.  So don’t even bother worrying about him.
