Fantasy Football Week 9 Waiver Wire: Chase Claypool, Jeff Wilson and more trade deadline situations to watch

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens

Depending on when you are reading this, please be aware that this waiver wire column could be updated at some point during the day Tuesday. That’s because Tuesday at 4 pm ET is the NFL trade deadline, and any potential deals could impact your waiver wire moves, which will be reflected here.

While no major offensive trades could happen, just know that we’ll have you covered if something does go down before you need to submit your waiver claims Tuesday night. Personally, I’m hoping Tuesday is a crazy day when it comes to the NFL trade market.

As far as injuries go for Week 8, we got relatively lucky. Cooper Kupp (ankle) seems to have avoided a serious injury, Mark Andrews (shoulder) could be available in Week 9 and hopefully Gus Edwards (hamstring) could play as well. The only guys who were hurt in Week 8 likely not available in Week 9, at least as of Monday, will be Rashod Bateman (foot), DeVante Parker (knee), Mark Ingram (knee) and Irv Smith (ankle).

There are six teams on a bye in Week 9 — Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, the Giants, Pittsburgh and San Francisco — so lots of Fantasy managers could be missing several stars. It should make for an active week on the waiver wire as many of you are looking for key replacements.

Editor’s note: For this waiver wire column, we are only looking at players rostered in less than 65 percent of CBS Sports leagues.

  • Drop candidates: Irv Smith (74 percent rostered) and David Njoku (68 percent). Smith isn’t expected to play in Week 9 at Washington and is considered week-to-week after hurting his ankle against the Cardinals in Week 8. He hasn’t been productive enough to roster while he’s out with an injury. … Njoku has a bye in Week 9 and might not return to action in Week 10 from the ankle injury he suffered in Week 7. In deeper leagues you should hold onto him, but it might be hard to justify stashing him if you need to add another tight end or help at a different position. Hopefully, Njoku is back to 100 percent sooner rather than later because he had a breakout season prior to his injury.
