It's #Week 9 of the #Fantasy Football season and we are getting very close to crunch time. The playoffs are inching closer, and every matchup gets more and more important. That means roster composition [VIDEO], especially during the bye week, becomes even more critical. If you aren't adding talent from the waiver wire throughout the season, you won't be winning your fantasy league. Let's take a look at which players should be added from the #Waiver Wire in week 9.

1. WR Paul Richardson (9.9% Ownership)

One week after catching two passes for 61 receiving yards and a touchdown, Richardson scored two and had 24 fantasy points against the Texans.

He could have had another one too, if there wasn't a chop block on a Seattle offensive lineman. Richardson ranks second in routes run for Seattle, and he and Wilson are starting to develop some late fantasy season chemistry. If you're lacking wide receiver depth, Richardson is an excellent option.

2. WR Travis Benjamin (7.6% Ownership)

One week ago, Benjamin caught exactly one pass for 42 yards and a touchdown. He also added a punt return touchdown, but neither of those things really made him fantasy relevant. This week, against the Patriots, Benjamin proved that he can be a fantasy starter as he had five catches for 64 receiving yards and a touchdown. Philip Rivers should continue looking his way for the rest of the year.

3. TE Tyler Kroft (37% Ownership)

At a weak fantasy position, Kroft is worth the add at tight end.

He only had five catches for 46 yards in week 8, but that's part of a larger trend where he has caught at least four passes in each of the past four games. He's a consistent option at a position that doesn't have much consistency. Add him from the waiver wire if you can.

4. QB Jacoby Brisset (11.1% Ownership)

Did you watch the Seattle Seahawks vs Houston Texans game last week? If you did, you know that the Texans pass defense is not particularly good, as they allowed a whopping four touchdown passes and 41 points to the Seahawks. Brisset isn't Russell Wilson, but he should still have a good day against one of the worst secondaries in the NFL.

5. RB Rex Burkhead (8.4% Ownership)

It's always hard to predict the Patriots running back situation, but Bill Belichick is clearly interested in getting Burkhead involved. On Sunday, the running back had 4 carries for 15 yards and seven catches for 68 yards. Burkhead is clearly going to have a role in this Patriots offense moving forward, so he is worth the speculative add from the waiver wire.
