Waiver Wire Watch: Week 10
Week 9 was a weird one in the NFL. The Jaguars beat the Bills. The Broncos were up 30-0 on the Cowboys in Dallas deep into the fourth quarter. And Eno Benjamin scored a truck-stick highlight touchdown. The fantasy week was weird as well, with random players scoring and big names dropping ghost performances. Hopefully, you were able to scrape together a win, or not have all of your DFS lineups crumble. There is help on this week’s waiver wire, but running back is (not surprisingly) thin. Four more teams head into their bye next week, though fortunately this round isn’t loaded with offensive powerhouses. Nevertheless, take note of who’s off and grab some help while you can. It feels like the waiver wire is thinning earlier than usual this season, though I hope I’m wrong there.
Recommendations are based on a PPR-scoring, four-point passing touchdown, 12-team league, with roster percentages coming from Yahoo. Typically, we will not be writing up players who are rostered in over 50% of leagues. We may include them on the lists, though, as a friendly reminder to scan your waiver wire for those names. Free-agent budget recommendations are based on a standard $100 budget for the season. I try to mention when a player is a better streaming play (short-term/one-week starter) versus a long-term addition. Lastly, the great John Paulsen will edit this article every week and adjust rankings (and prices, starting next week), if necessary. Essentially, you’re getting two minds collaborating on this piece instead of one, so lucky you.
