Week 10 waiver wire adds
Week 10 Waiver Wire
Week 9 is in the books and on to week 10 it is. Hopefully last week you didn’t rush to grab Charcandrick West, or if you did and lost out well then it panned out perfectly. The fantasy playoffs are right around the corner and even if you’re sitting at 6-3, 5-4 getting into the playoffs isn’t guaranteed and this is when the waiver wire can possibly help you swing things around. Here are the waiver adds for week 10. None of these are in any particular order.
Paul Perkins (RB) Giants
With Shane Vereen on IR and Rashad Jennings not being able to deliver for the Giants, the run game as of late has been a mess. Last week Paul Perkins saw an increase in carries, but still didn’t blow you away with his stats at the end of the game. Still Perkins is somewhat interesting as an add or stash if you have the room in case he were to over take Jennings.
Chris Ivory (RB) Jaguars
With the Jaguars making some changes offensively on the coaching staff the Jags came out with a different look on Sunday. They were more run heavy than the previous weeks. Ivory ran for over 100 yards, but did fumble in the end zone. It’s hard to tell at the moment if that may cost him and carries to Yeldon, but Ivory is definitely worth an add.
Peyton Barber (RB) Buccaneers
The Bucs just can’t catch a break with all the injuries they’ve endured this season at the RB position. Doug Martin has yet to practice, Rodgers remains in a walking boot and Antone Smith is out for the season. If Martin isn’t ready this week Barber will be the started on Sunday.
Dejuan Harris (RB) 49ers
Look this situation is simple. If Carlos Hyde isn’t playing this will be the only time you add or play Harris.
Robert Kelley (RB) Redskins
Jay Gruden already announced that Kelley would be the lead back for Washington and not Matt Jones. Although Matt Jones is still in the picture Gruden said he would need to earn his reps back. Kelley is a must add regardless of the size of your league.
Tim Hightower (RB) Saints
Well what do ya know?! Tim Hightower remained heavily involved in the Saints run game even though Ingram had the monster day fantasy wise. Hightower still ran for over 100 and grabbed a score himself. As long as Hightower remains involved he should be added.
James Starks (RB) Packers
Ty Montgomery has been nice when it comes to filling in the lead back duties for the Packers lately. Starks isn’t fully healthy yet, but he should be back in the Packers backfield as late as next week to take over the RB duties.
Richard Matthews (WR) Titans
With Andre Johnson out of the picture now, Matthews has seen an increase in targets and has become the most reliable option at receiver for the Titans as of late.
Chris Conley, Albert Wilson, Tyreek Hill (WR’s) Chiefs
This seems like a situation you shouldn’t even touch, but with Maclin sidelined currently with a groin injury its hard to tell which once of these guys is going to step up. It is worth noting though that Conley has seen the majority of targets compared to Hill and Wilson.
Jay Cutler (QB) Bears
Unless you’re in a 14 team league or deeper chances are you probably aren’t owning Cutler. Cutler made good in his return from injury beating a tough Vikings team on Halloween night. Coming off a bye Cutler has another good match up his plate against a Tampa Bay defense that we’ve seen exposed numerous times this season.
Colin Kaepernick (QB) 49ers
Since earning his way back to the starting QB Kaepernick has been quietly good. He’s been posting great stats to get you buy if you need a quarterback on a bye week, and quite frankly isn’t just a fill in anymore, but a solid QB play for your fantasy team.
