Fantasy Football Week 9 waiver wire: Players you should add

It’s crunch time for your fantasy team

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

We are now heading towards the descent of the 2020 fantasy football season. With regular seasons winding down, the next few weeks will be crucial for your fantasy squad. Make sure you’re on point this week with your waiver wire claims.

DeeJay Dallas, RB, Seattle Seahawks

11.7 percent rostered
Season Stats: 29 touches; 99 yards; 2 touchdowns

Last week Dallas stepped in for a depleted Seahawks running back group, and exploded for a strong day. He scored his only two touchdowns of the season against the 49ers, while also totaling five receptions. Dallas’s production is pretty good proof whoever is toting the rock in Seattle has potential for a big game.

Damien Harris, RB, New England Patriots

31.3 percent rostered
Season Stats: 51 touches; 305 yards; 1 touchdown

In Harris’s two games with over 15 touches, he’s surpassed the 100 yard mark. While he hasn’t been entirely consistent, he could see an increase in snaps towards the end of the year for a Patriots team struggling to move the ball on offense.

Jamycal Hasty, RB, San Francisco 49ers

45.6 percent rostered
Season Stats: 35 touches; 159 yards; 1 touchdown

The 49ers running back situation is another messy one because of injury. While the 49ers roster is fairly depleted, they still lean on their running backs for production. Hasty reached the end zone last week against Seattle, and should maintain those touches until players above him return.

Darnell Mooney, WR, Chicago Bears

3.7 percent rostered
Season Stats: 26 receptions; 43 targets; 305 yards; 2 touchdowns

Bears rookie Darnell Mooney had a season high five receptions and 69 yards, capping it off with a touchdown. The Bears deep threat is slowly seeing an increase in his role throughout 2020, making him a fantastic option for the end of the year.

Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

14.3 percent rostered
Season Stats: 8 receptions; 14 targets; 112 yards; 1 touchdown

Reagor missed five games to start the year because of injury, and returned in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles first round pick will surely have a bump in targets as the season finishes up, especially considering how thin Philadelphia is at receiver.

Curtis Samuel, WR, Carolina Panthers

37.1 percent rostered
Season Stats: 29 receptions; 34 targets; 262 yards; 3 touchdowns

Curtis Samuel is the do-it-all gadget for the Carolina Panthers offense. On Thursday Night Football, Samuel posted two total touchdowns and four receptions.

Logan Thomas, TE, Washington Football Team

8.1 percent rostered
Season Stats: 21 receptions; 40 targets; 208 yards; 3 touchdowns

Logan Thomas has back to back weeks with touchdowns receptions, and is still one of the lowest rostered starting tight ends. If you need depth at tight end, grab Thomas now before it’s too late.
