Week 10 Waiver Wire Pick-Ups


Damien Williams/Kenyan Drake

Williams is actually less-owned than Drake across the fantasy community, so this one is worth a look. Extremely doubtful that either are available, but we recommend running a few searches throughout your leagues to check availability. Williams was pretty light in the running game, totaling 7 Attempts for only 14 Yards, but saw his real production come in the receiving game with 6 Receptions on 6 Targets of 47 Yards and 1 TD.On the flip side, Drake ran for 69 Yards on 9 Attempts, lost 1 Fumble and grabbed 6 Receptions on 6 Targets for 35 Yards. Expect the split to continue in Miami, but we doubt this backfield will combine for 12 Receptions on a weekly basis.

Matt Forte

Yes he is old, but he has been producing like a solid RB2. His stat-line took a huge jump and caught some attention this week with him grabbing a pair of TDs on Thursday Night. Forte will square off against TB, who rank as the 3rd Worst Defense in the NFL to opposing Fantasy RBs, allowing an average of 26.8 PPG. Forte should be primed and ready for another solid outing. This guy is straight propelling teams on the bubble into the playoffs! Note: NYJ – Bye Week 11.

Danny Woodhead

“Preemptive Strike” – Woodhead should return to action in the coming weeks and if you have dead space or an IR Spot on your roster, we recommend hedging your bets here. It’s a complicated backfield with Collins and Allen already mixing things up, but Woodhead is a triple threat for this offense, which has been lagging all season.

Marvin Jones

It’s extremely doubtful that Jones is lingering around the waiver wire at this point, as he has provided a steady dose of dominance for a solid stretch. Jones torched Green Bay on Monday Night for 7 Receptions, 107 Yards and 2 TDs on a head-turning 11 Targets. His streak should continue next week against the Land of Cleve’s.

Robby Anderson

Anderson has hit this list so many times and based on how hot he has been, we would be disappointed if he’s still available. By the way, he has a touchdown in 3 consecutive games!

Marqise Lee

Lee has actually been a productive WR this season, despite awful QB play in JAX. Lee grabbed his first TD of 2017, which bolstered up his numbers, but we can’t argue with his consistent production. We still expect TDs to be far-and-few-between, however he is absolutely worth an addition.

Robert Woods

Similar to Marqise Lee, Robert Woods’ numbers almost mimic Lee’s. He hit the pay-dirt for the first time on Sunday, tallying 2 TDs and it’s evident that this offense is clicking. On the season, Woods is averaging +6 Targets Per Game and his Target to Reception Ratio is right at 63%. We peg Lee above Woods simply due to the additional available options in LA – Gurley, Kupp, Watkins compared to JAX.

Corey Davis

If you missed out last week or if an owner is forced to drop Davis due to byes, Davis provides down-the-stretch potential that you won’t really find on the waiver wire at this point. If available, pick him up!

Greg Olsen

“Preemptive Strike” – Similar to Danny Woodhead above, if you have open space on your roster or an IR Spot, we recommend grabbing Olsen. The TE Position has been a nightmare in 2017, but Olsen could provide some solid footing and consistency to an offense that just lost Kelvin Benjamin. He should return near Week 12, which times up nearly perfect for the fantasy playoffs with a few warm up games before Rd 1 hits.

Detroit Lions Defense

They host a pathetic Browns Team at Detroit in Week 10. This should be considered one of the hottest pick-ups of Week 10.

LA Rams Defense

This is a tricky play here, but one we feel will ultimately tip in the favor of LA and rack up some points. The Rams host Houston in LA. We would expect LA’s DC to make it his life’s mission to shut down Hopkins. In Week 9, Hopkins tallied 16 Targets from QB Tom Savage. Expect some fireworks in this one!
