It’s that time of the week again when we scour the waiver wire for hidden gems to help catapult our fantasy teams to victory. In this week’s podcast, Joe Pisapia, Pat Fitzmaurice, and Derek Brown break down some must-have players to add to your roster as we head into the crucial stretch of the 2023 season.
Fantasy Football Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups
With CJ Stroud putting up a rookie-record-breaking performance with over 400 passing yards in his last outing, grabbing an explosive wideout like Tank Dell could be a game-changer for your fantasy squad.
Demario Douglas, an overachieving day three draft pick from Liberty University, has emerged as the WR1 for the New England Patriots. His consistency in training camp and reliability as a possession receiver make him a valuable addition to your roster. If you’re in need of a wide receiver, consider bidding 5-10% of your remaining budget for this rising star.
Keaton Mitchell’s performance in Week 9 was undeniably impressive, but there are concerns about his playing time. He only saw the field for 18% of snaps, which limits his opportunities. Proceed with caution when considering him for your roster, as his involvement remains uncertain.
If you want to bolster your depth, consider adding Leonard Fournette to your roster with a bid of up to 10%. While James Cook‘s touches have been limited, Fournette presents a potentially better option than Latavius Murray. Additional handcuffs like Tyjae Spears and Rico Dowdle can also provide crucial insurance for your fantasy football roster.
Odell Beckham Jr. showed some productivity in garbage time with a touchdown in his latest outing. While this raises questions about his potential moving forward, he’s worth monitoring as a potential addition to your roster, especially if you’re in need of a wide receiver.
Despite previous doubts, Quentin Johnston’s fantasy value has been boosted due to Josh Palmer‘s injury. With Palmer sidelined, Johnston’s playing time and production are expected to increase. Consider adding him back to your roster, budgeting around 3 to 6% of your available funds.
Zay Jones has shown low-level standalone value and can be a valuable handcuff for Christian Kirk or Calvin Ridley. His effectiveness in the Red Zone and consistent touchdown production make him a solid depth addition. Look for opportunities to chase touchdowns with Zay Jones, allocating a 2-3% budget for this valuable asset.
Jameson Williams has the potential for a breakout game with increased snaps and a favorable matchup against the Chargers. Keep an eye on his high target per route run rate, and take advantage of this opportunity if you’re in need of a wide receiver.
Baker Mayfield has been performing well this year and could be a QB1 candidate for Week 10 with significant streaming upside. If you’re in need of a quarterback, consider him as a viable option. Additionally, Taylor Heinicke and Gerald Everett are potential streaming options at QB and TE, respectively, for this week.
The firing of Josh McDaniels could lead to an inspired performance by the Raiders in the upcoming weeks. Keep an eye on this team, especially when facing the Jets and rookie quarterback Zach Wilson. A strong defensive performance could be in the cards.
