Top Fantasy Week 9 WR Streamers: Josh Palmer, Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman & More

We'll get you through Bye Week hell.

We’re entering a weird week in fantasy football where six teams are off on their respective bye weeks. In Week 9, we’ll be without the Cowboys, 49ers, Steelers, Broncos, Giants, and Browns, so we’ll need some reinforcements. Not to mention, we’ve got Mike Williams, Brandin Cooks, Rashod Bateman, and potentially Keenan Allen out for the week.

Here are five of our top fantasy Week 9 WR streamers to help you get by until your guys return to your roster.

First check: Rondale Moore (66% rostered), Romeo Doubs (64%), Devin Duvernay (64%), Darnell Mooney (57%), Garrett Wilson (56%)


I have zero clue how this guy is still available in half of fantasy leagues. Josh Palmer hasn’t necessarily had a blow-up week, but he’s the most valuable ‘WR handcuff’ in the league due to the offense he’s in and the fact that his teammates can’t stay healthy. Mike Williams is out for ‘weeks,’ with an ankle sprain and Keenan Allen has yet to practice this week with his season-long hamstring issue. To make the Palmer stream even more enticing, he gets the Falcons this week, who have given up the most fantasy points to wideouts and have allowed the most passing yards per game this season. Add him now.


The last time we saw Mecole Hardman, he scored two rushing touchdowns on the ground and one through the air for nearly 30 fantasy points. Although the team added Kadarious Toney just a few days later, it would be shocking to see Toney step in right away and take a chunk of Hardman’s snaps. The two have a similar skill set, but Hardman should still get the nod for at least another week. Hardman gets a Titans team that’s given up the fourth-most fantasy points to receivers. Get one last stream out of Hardman before Toney likely takes his role.


I told you above why Joshua Palmer is a perfect streaming candidate for Week 9 and DeAndre Carter falls in line behind Palmer. If both Williams and Allen are out, then Carter and Palmer will start and get the majority of snaps. Carter has caught at least two passes in every game this season and his role should only increase if the two wideouts sit out Week 9. He’s also seen 12 targets over the last two games. Gerald Everett and Austin Ekeler will see a ton of targets, but the two wideouts should be able to take advantage of a plus matchup on the perimeter.


Sometimes relationships change after college and we’re finding that to be true between Derek Carr and Davante Adams. Carr targeted Adams only five times last week when his team was trailing all afternoon and Adams responded with one measly catch for three yards. Unfortunately for Adams managers, Mack Hollins benefited from Adams’ non-existence, racking up seven receptions for 64 yards on eight targets. Hollins has double-digit fantasy points in back-to-back games and weirdly has a stronger rapport with Carr than Hunter Renfrow.


The injury bug has once again hit the Baltimore Ravens with Mark Andrews (ankle, shoulder) and Rashod Bateman (foot) both likely to miss this week’s tilt against the Saints. While Isaiah Likely will get a boost in Andrew’s tight end spot, Robinson stepped up last week when Bateman exited with a foot injury. Lamar Jackson targeted Robinson eight times and Robinson snagged six of those for 64 yards. He gets a Saints’ secondary that’s allowed the 10th-most fantasy points to receivers. Jackson has to target someone on Monday night, right?
