Waiver Wire Pickups
Carson Palmer, QB, Arizona Cardinals (Owned in 50% of Yahoo! Leagues): Palmer has been on a roll since returning from injury (832 yards passing, six TDs, one INT in three games). He threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to John Brown to win the game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and he has no shortage of weapons. Palmer should be owned in all leagues as a backup quarterback and quick, before someone else scoops him up.
Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals (68% Y!): Dalton has only thrown for 1600 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions in seven games this season. Dalton is not playing at the level everyone expected him to play at and his fantasy value has suffered because of that. But he may be getting back A.J. Green this week, which can definitely improve Dalton’s stock. Dalton also ran for two rushing touchdowns on Sunday. In Week 9, he is playing the Jacksonville Jaguars, a very favorable matchup. If you need a streamer quarterback this week, add Dalton.
