The fantasy football season is more than halfway finished. Is your team ready to compete for a fantasy championship? If you need a little help, considering signing one of these waiver wire pickups for Week 9 of the 2011 fantasy football season.
QB Tarvaris Jackson, Seattle Seahawks
Yeah, everyone hates Tarvaris Jackson. But he’s been getting better and better this season. In Week 8, he returned from injury and passed for a carer-high 323 yards. As a backup with a decent ceiling, sign him up.

RB Javon Ringer, Tennessee Titans
Let’s face it, something is wrong with Chris Johnson. Right now, he just sucks. Javon Ringer is the better player and I wouldn’t be surprised if Chris Johnson went down with an “injury” in hopes of figuring out what has gone so horribly wrong.
WR Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Pick him up if he’s available. Another hard truth: Antonio Brown is better than Hines Ward. If the Steelers coaching staff agrees an...
BEST OF MAXIM
RENTON -- Coach Pete Carroll hoped to be able to rest quarterback Tarvaris Jackson on Sunday against Cincinnati.That's not going to be the case this week after Jackson not only played the final three quarters of Sunday's game, but felt OK after doing it."He says he feels OK," Carroll said. "He feels better than he did last week at this time. That's a really...
A little over a month ago, with the Seahawks stumbling as a team and looking like one that would be in the Andrew Luck sweepstakes than anything else. The defense had played well, but the offense had been really bad, especially QB Tarvaris Jackson.It was at that time that I called for a QB change. It was time to try and see if Charlie Whitehurst could provide a spark. Jackson was...
After each week of the regular season and possibly during the NFL playoffs should the Seattle Seahawks be so lucky Dave B will stop by and bring you his Seahawks game balls. Balls are awarded to the Seahawks offensive MVP Quarterback, Tarvaris Jackson, and on defense it goes to Strong Safety Kam Chancellor vs. the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8...
In a game that was far closer than the lopsided final score indicated, the Seahawks blew numerous opportunities to defeat a tough Bengals team at home yesterday. The game displayed all of the important qualities of the Seattle Seahawks right now- Both the good and the bad. First... Ugh... The Bad: -Pete Carroll's Bizarre DecisionsI love Pete Carroll, and I truly believe he is...
Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett B tells us sometimes a coach makes a decision that leaves you shaking your head. In the case of Seattle Seahawks HC Pete Carroll it's almost a weekly head-scratch! For starters why did you name Tarvaris Jackson the starting QB before the first preseason football game?
Tarvaris Jackson is active for Sunday’s game against the Bengals, but he’ll start the game on the sideline. Charlie Whitehurst was out with the Seahawks starter to open Sunday’s game, which came as a surprise. The Seahawks announced Jackson as the team’s starting quarterback, then made a change at the last minute for an unexplained…

If Seahawks coach Pete Carroll’s ideal scenario had played out on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, starting quarterback Tarvaris Jackson would have been wearing a baseball cap and jacket on the sidelines.
The problem was that Carroll’s...
Three things we learned
Tarvaris Jackson is Seattle's best quarterback choice.There can be no dispute now, can there? Charlie Whitehurst started the game and the Seahawks failed to gain a first down on two of their first three possessions, and that one drive they did manage to move the ball was helped greatly by a dumber-than-dumb personal-foul penalty on Cincinnati, negating...
Top 5 Free Agents
#1. Michael Crabtree SF 54 receiving yards 1 TD
When Crabtree has managed to be on the field he has managed to produced. He should become a solid fantasy receiving option.
#2. Javon Ringer TEN 102 total yards 0 TD
With Chris Johnson continually not producing, Tennessee is giving Ringer more and more chances to take over as the number one back. I would grab Ringer...
