Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watch Week 10: Odell Beckham's Return Looming
As a refresher, The Drop List consists of players who are rostered in at least 50% of Yahoo leagues and are no longer must-have assets, recommended additions are available in over 50% of Yahoo leagues, the Watch List contains in-depth notes on fringe waiver adds, and Deep Cuts includes player notes on those rostered in 5% or fewer of Yahoo and FFPC leagues.
The Drop List
Aaron Rodgers failed the only viable streaming spot he’ll see all year, scoring 13.6 fantasy points with three interceptions as the week’s QB15 opposite Detroit. The QB25 in fantasy points per game, Rodgers can be dropped in favor of Jimmy Garoppolo, Daniel Jones, or Andy Dalton wherever applicable.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire has finished third in the pecking order with 11 total touches to Isiah Pacheco’s 14 and Jerick McKinnon’s 13 in Kansas City’s last two games. Having totaled single-digit touches as the RB42, RB30, and RB43 in his last three performances, CEH is merely clogging rosters in shallower leagues.
James Conner’s 71% snap rate and 14.2% target share were his highest marks since the season opener, rendering Eno Benjamin completely useless with just five touches on 17 snaps (27%). Benjamin has been added to the Contingency Top 10 (scroll down) accordingly.
J.K. Dobbins is expected to miss “4-6 weeks” following arthroscopic knee surgery. Already limited in his first attempt to return to the field, there’s no need to envision Dobbins as a viable fantasy asset in 2022 since his timeline keeps him sidelined until after the fantasy playoffs.
Romeo Doubs’ high-ankle sprain will keep him sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks, putting him back on the field (best-case scenario) at an irrelevant time for fantasy. Allen Lazard, who has averaged 8.7 targets in his last four full games, is the only receiver who can be trusted ROS for Green Bay.
Hunter Renfrow has yet to eclipse 60 receiving yards in any game this year, averaging 2.3 receptions since Las Vegas returned from its Week 6 bye. Terrace Marshall, widely available in Yahoo leagues, is a better weekly option moving forward.
Tyler Higbee's target share has plummeted from 24.1% through Week 5 to 9.2% in the Rams’ last three games. Averaging a pitiful 3.6 yards per play with two total passing scores (both to Cooper Kupp) since returning from their Week 7 bye, Higbee, much like Los Angeles’ offense outside of Kupp, is not worth investing in; Greg Dulcich, Cade Otton, and Foster Moreau are all better options at TE.
The rug was pulled out from underneath Mike Gesicki following strong back-to-back performances in Weeks 6-7, seeing his on-field usage buried to 56% route participation with six total targets in his last two games. Greg Dulcich, Cade Otton, and Foster Moreau should all be started over Gesicki in Week 10.
