Rabble Waivers: Week 9


Jason Campbell (CLE) STARTER
Picking up where Brian Hoyer left off, Jason Campbell proved that Brandon Wheeden has no business taking snaps for the Browns. This offense is talented and it seems like everyone not named Wheeden has found success operating in it. Take a chance on Campbell who lit up the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium to the tune of  293 yards and two touchdowns. It could be a down week for Campbell in a divisional tilt against the Ravens, but he's worth a spot on your team if you have concerns at quarterback.

As we've said before, there's nothing special about Jay Cutler. Go ahead and see what McCown can do in a talent loaded Bears offense. He's got a friendly matchup against a Packers defense that is playing without Clay Matthews.

Running Backs

Andre Brown (NYG) HIDE N' WATCH
Brown isn't back this week, but he'll be the guy in New York when he returns. Expect to see him back on the field in Week 10. Peyton Hillis has been fairly effective behind the Giants' offensive line. We believe Brown has far more talent and should easily outperform Hillis' numbers.

If you've got any slowpokes in you're league it's likely that one of them dropped Tate at some point during the season. Take five minutes and check if this guy is there.

Shonn Greene (TEN) HIDE N' WATCH
The former bruiser from New York returned to action after a minor knee procedure. He only had one carry, but it figures that he should be effective in short yardage action as the Titans bring him up to speed. If you need a guy to vulture some touchdowns Greene might be a good candidate.

Wide Receivers

David Nelson (NYJ) STARTER (PPR)
Nelson saw seven targets in Week 7, and a team-high twelve in Week 8. That's a good sign for the fourth-year man out of Florida. Nelson is a big-body at 6'5" and 215 pounds. He hasn't gotten in the endzone in any of his four games this season, but his role is increasing and his size screams goal-line threat.

As long as Roddy White is on the bench, there is value in Atlanta's backup wide-outs. Drew Davis emerged from the bench last week against Arizona as another viable option for Matt Ryan. If you didn't win the Harry Douglas lottery, take a chance on Davis.

Marvin Jones (CIN) STARTER
Marvin Jones caught four touchdown passes last Sunday. He's scored a touchdown in three straight weeks. Cincinnati has needed a solid WR2 to play opposite A.J. Green and Jones looks to be that guy.

Percy Harvin (SEA) HIDE N' WATCH
Each week we get a little closer to Harvin's return. We'd add him this week if you've got the space on your roster. Harvin should be a PPR monster.

Tight Ends

Tim Wright (TB) STARTER
As long as Mike Glennon is attempting 45+ passes a game, there is some value in the receivers on his team. Wright got back on track last Thursday hauling in five passes for 48 yards and a score.


Oakland will face off against a Philadelphia team that may be forced to start Matt Barkley. Monitor Nick Foles' health. If Barkley starts, you'll want to start the Raider defense.

Cleveland is at home in a divisional battle with the Ravens. Cleveland only allowed 14 points the last time these teams met, but that was with Wheeden under center. The Browns offense was 4/15 on third downs and gave the Ravens plenty of opportunities to score. Campbell should keep the drives alive and provide much needed rest for an underrated defensive unit.
