Growth stocks are catching some bids Tuesday amid falling Treasury yields. Market Rebellion co-founder Jon Najarian highlighted a few of the growth names investors seem to be focused on.

What To Know: Najarian bought Roblox Corp RBLX call options after seeing strong interest in the call-side contracts. 

"Obviously the stock has been slaughtered. It's down so dramatically that people ... are saying, I'm going to take a shot at this one," Najarian said Tuesday on CNBC's "Fast Money Halftime Report."

Roblox shares are down more than 60% since the start of the year, according to data from Benzinga Pro.

"Some of these stocks have been battered so severely that it's hard to imagine a much worse scenario," Najarian said.

Amazon.com Inc AMZN is another name that has given back a lot of its gains. Amazon shares are down more than 32% year-to-date and traders are looking for a short-term pop to the upside, according to Najarian. 

"We have some strong unusual activity. How strong? 15,000 calls," he said. 

Those calls are at the $111 strike and are set to expire this week, he added. Najarian told CNBC he jumped into those contracts with the stock trading around $109 per share.
