The NFL season is entering into the 3rd quarter of action and has been pretty hectic. I have never seen more up and down fantasy weeks from would be / should be first round talent. From Ray Rice (BAL) 245 yards rushing, to sophomore slumps by Doug Martin (TB) and Alfred Morris (WSH) among others.
But it hasn’t just been from the first rounders but a handful of 2nd and 3rd rounders have been just as pathetic on your season. Hakeem Nicks (NYG) has been an absolute bust, and a top 5 QB like Tom Brady (NE) is barely cracking the top 20.
It’s these players that are making the 2013 fantasy football season an extremely stressful year, and it has forced you to make some very hectic decisions week in and week out.
With the Broncos, Lions, Giants, and 9ers among others on their bye in week 9 scouring the waiver wire will be a critical step to keep your playoff hopes alive.

Nick Foles (PHI): Foles (11.2%) is making his way back onto the field after battling a concussion received at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys in week 7. Prior to being sidelined Foles, had two straight weeks of at least 19 fantasy points including nearly 500 yards passing a 5 scores combined. Foles certainly had a tough day against the Cowboys before going down but is now being resurrected as the starting QB for the Eagles week 9 match up vs. Oakland. Oakland comes in ranked 18th against opposing QBs and has given up at least 15 fantasy points in 5 of their 7 played games so far.
