Waiver Wire Watch: Players to Pick Up Week 9
Not nearly as many upsets in Week 8, yet it was still another entertaining week for fantasy in the college world. Arkansas State's Justice Hansen is on fire, averaging an absurd 35 fantasy points a week and he was available on most waiver wires last week. I'll try at some more recommendations like that one for Week 9. As a friendly reminder, make sure to keep up with injury news as this article is posted early in the week. As always, I'll get to any questions or comments you have in the comments section below.
Adrian Killins Jr, RB, UCF: Due to Hurricane Irma causing the cancellation of the Knights' game with Georgia Tech, UCF gets to play Austin Peay in Week 9. If you already own QB McKenzie Milton or WR Tre'Quan Smith, you're ready to go. If you don't have a Knight, go with Killins, owned in only 3 percent of leagues. The small, but extremely fast running back had two of the team's four touchdowns versus Navy in Week 8.
Ben Hicks, QB, SMU: Hicks is owned in only 23 percent of leagues even though he's averaging around 24 fantasy points a game in standard leagues. With stud receivers like Trey Quinn and Courtland Sutton, the Mustangs should have no problems versus a Tulsa offense that is giving up over 500 yards a game.
*Tulane vs. Memphis and South Florida vs. Houston are soft matchups
