Fantasy Football Week 10 Waiver Wire Trends

Week 10 is here which means there are probably about four more weeks of the regular season and left and you have to make a playoff push or bust! Here are your top targets for this weeks waiver wire report!

Teams on a bye this week: Baltimore, Denver, Houston, Minnesota

Wide Receivers:

Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders, DeAndre Hopkins, Demaryius Thomas, Willie Snead, Michael Crabtree all on a bye!

  • Allen Humphries: This is a unfamiliar name probably but Humphries over the last three weeks has seen a high of 10 targets and low of 8 targets, meaning he is getting the looks! Last week he broke out for 8 receptions, 82 yards and 2 touchdowns. While coming into this week the Buccaneers play the Redskins who allow the 10th most fantasy points to wide receivers. Humphries reminds me a little of Adam Thielen perhaps he can do the same thing and put up 15+ points for you!
  • Quincy Enunwa: He was on my list last week and he is staying this week. Enunwa produced 7 points last week, seeing 4 targets for 3 catches and 40 yards. Enunwa is going up vs the Bills, a terrible team in complete shambles. Enunwa had a week to get himself going and in a rhythm of things, I expect a good week from him this week. 10 points I am projecting.
  • John Ross: If healthy and does play, Ross can be a great option. With AJ Green out this week Ross has a chance to step into a pass heavy offense. On the year Ross 7 receptions for 79 yards. The Bengals play the Saints in what will probably be a shootout since New Orleans defense is bad and the Bengals will need to score to keep up with the Saints offense. Ross has potential for a 10 point week!
  • Tre ‘Quan Smith: The Saints new no.2 wide receiver has caught three touchdown passes over the last four weeks. Smith sees around 3-6 targets a week, but he is a big red zone threat and Drew Brees seems to love him. Going up against the Bengals secondary that allows the 5th most points to wide receivers and a league high allowing 319.4 passing yards a game.

Running backs:

Javorius Allen, Dalvin Cook, Latavius Murray, Lamar Miller, Pat Lindsay are out this week!

  • Ito Smith: He was on my list last week and he is staying this week! Smith had himself a nice week vs Washington last week. He totaled 10 carries 60 yards a 1 touchdown. Even with Talvin Coleman in the mix, Smith managed to see some ground. The Falcons coming off a big win and good week from the RB’s should pound the ball on the ground more this week. The Falcons play the Browns who give up the 4th most fantasy points to running backs.
  • Jalen Richard: Although Richard does not see the ground so much he is a versatile receiving running back that catches more than he rushes. Over the last four weeks he has consistently put up 10 plus points. As the Raiders get ready to face the Chargers who give up the 14th most points to running backs it could be another 10 point for Richards.
  • Mike Davis: Now, IF, Chris Carson is inactive Davis could see the same thing he saw last week 15 rushing attempts for 62 yards and 7 receptions for 45 yards. If you are someone looking at Davis you better hope Chris Carson hits the inactive list this week cause Davis can help you big time. Seattle plays the Rams where the run game will need to be stellar for the Seahawks to even have a chance.
  • Wendell Smallwood or Corey Clement: This is a tough choice the two are in a major time share role and neither will see more time over another. Smallwood is listed right now as the Eagles RB1 but there is also Darren Sproles and Josh Adams in that backfield too. Risky but maybe worth it.

Tight End: 

Kyle Rudolph, Jordin Thomas, Matt LaCosse, Hayden Hurst are out!

  • Evan Engram: The tight end waiver wire is always so thin but Engram provides some value he is really a hit or miss. If you have a tight end on a bye this week or any week I feel sorry for you because there is not much value out there. Engram has 17 receptions 145 yards and 2 touchdowns on the year.
  • Vance McDonald: That is McDonald’s third week where he saw more snaps and targets then Jesse James. McDonald will play the Panthers who have an ok pass defense, they allow the most points to tight ends. Last week McDonald had 3 receptions on 6 targets for 25 yards. He is good for around 6-9 points.
  • Chris Herndon: Last week he was the Jets leading receiver and seems to Darnold’s fall out guy when he has nothing else. Herndon has 11+ points in 4 of the 5 last weeks, he sees around 4 targets a game and is good for an end zone look every once and a while. the Jets play the Bills this week who on paper look like a good defense but are easily exposable.
  • Dallas Goedert: The only reason he is on the list is because if you have a solid scoring team already and just need a plug in for about 5 points Goedert could be your guy. Plus he has 3 touchdowns on the year he is an red zone favorite and always has touchdown potential no matter the match up.
