The Waiver Wire: Week 10

Week 10 is upon us. Where has the time gone? The playoffs fields are quickly taking shape with or without you. Whether you’re 9-0, 0-9 or anywhere in between DFF is here to help you. We’ll provide you with options for your Dynasty or Redraft leagues to get you through the various injuries and bye weeks. Perhaps you just want some players to stash for 2019. We can help you with that too.

Don’t shy away from targeting these players in trades if they’re already owned in your league(s). And because man or woman can not survive on waiver wire content alone don’t forget to check out all of our other content to help you dominate your leagues. We have podcasts (I’m partial to the DynastyTradesHQ podcast), start/sits, IDP and even DFS content for your check out every week.

Just a note before we dive in. Mitch is away so you’ll just get my recommendations this week.

Shane Says:


After Nick Mullens threw for 262 yards and 3 TDs against a Raiders team that conceded sometime shortly after kickoff on Thursday. With C.J. Beathard still battling a wrist injury, and with the way Mullens performed he should be in line for another start in week 10. Though not as putrid as the Raiders, the Giants aren’t much better and have to travel cross country for this week 10 tilt. 

Running Back:

Mike Davis had himself a day after Chris Carson injured his hip. Davis rushed for 62 yards and added another 45 receiving yards on 7 receptions. Carson was unable to play in the second half after going for 40 yards on 8 carries in the first half Sunday. Hip injuries are scary, so Carson may be forced to miss time.

In week 4, with Carson sidelined, Davis rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries and added another 23 yards on 4 receptions. While that did come against the atrocious Arizona run defense, Davis was still impressive when given the starting nod. 

Rashaad Penny is the man behind the man, assuming Carson does miss any time. In redraft leagues, Penny is available on waivers. If you can squeeze him onto your roster, I say go for it. 

After being exiled from Green Bay, it’d be reasonable to expect some to throw in the towel in onTy Montgomery, and I expect some fantasy players to do just that. That’s being short-sighted, and you should capitalize on this. Rarely utilized in Green Bay, Montgomery had 7 or fewer touches in 6 of 7 games played. With top 5 Yards Per Touch and top 36 Fantasy Points Per Opportunity rankings, Montgomery has shown he can still produce when given a chance to do so. Montgomery is a much better athlete than Buck Allen and has outproduced him on a per touch basis, 6.7 yards to 4.2. Don’t be surprised if Montgomery usurps Allens third-down back role in short order. 

Elijah McGuire returned from the IR this week and immediately established himself as the backup running back for the Jets. McGuire had 3 receptions for 37 yards and added another 30 yards on the ground. Isaiah Crowell continues to underperform and could only muster 3.8 yards per carry compared to McGuire’s 4.3 yards per carry. If Crowell continues to play this poorly he could lose his starting role this season and find himself cut at the conclusion of the season.

Wide Receiver:

A.J. Green injured his toe last week near the end of the 4th quarter. News broke Sunday that he could be forced to miss time and may even need to undergo surgery. Josh Malone is similarly built and a tad faster than Green and could slide into Green’s starting role. Malone is a player the dynasty community had high hopes for but he’s failed to produce in any meaningful way. Currently residing in Marvin Lewis’s doghouse, he could gain a reprieve if Green does miss significant time. If Malone isn’t available then special teams standout  Alex Erickson is worth a speculative add if you have the available roster space. 

This could also be an opportunity for John Ross to show that he’s worth his top 10 NFL draft capital. If Ross can recover from his current groin injury, I’d add him in redraft if you have large rosters.

Adam Humphries has 19 receptions, 27 targets, 195 yards and two touchdowns over his last three games. Humphries flashed multiple times in 2017, scoring double-digit fantasy points on 5 occasions. An unrestricted free agent after this season Humphries is a player that you can roll out for the rest of this season as well as a stash for next season.

Paul Richardson’s disappointing first season in Washington has come to a disappointing end with being placed on the IR Monday due to a shoulder injury. Jamison Crowder has been out of action for the last four weeks and only produced one fantasy usable week in the four games he did play. Maurice Harris is now a starter on a professional football team so I’d be remiss if I didn’t at least mention him. Washington gets to face a Tampa Bay’s pass defense that has given up the 6th most passing yards this season. Harris had a great game against the Falcons on Sunday, going off for 10 receptions and 124 yards. Expectations should be tempered when adding Harris though. In the previous four weeks prior to Sunday, Harris totaled 11 receptions. But with Crowder still missing in action and Richardson finished for the season Harris should be a vital cog to the Washington offense the rest of the season. 

Tight End:

Jeff Heuerman went off against the Texans on Sunday with 10 receptions for 83 yards and a TD. Now that Demaryius Thomas is no longer a Bronco, someone or multiple someones will need to account for his 19.6% target share. Coming into Sunday’s action Heuerman had 15 receptions on the season, so it’s doubtful he’ll suddenly see 10 targets a week on a consistent basis.

Still, tight end is a game of fantasy Russian Roulette most weeks, and Heuerman has consistently had high snap shares and routes run on a weekly basis. The Broncos are on a bye next week, but if you have to stream a tight end after that, you could do much worse. 

C.J. Uzomah hasn’t broken out like I hoped after he took over as the starting tight end in Cincinnati. He’s scored fewer than 10 points three of the last four weeks before the Bengals week 9 bye, including a donut in week 8. Uzomah does continue to be involved with +94% snap shares in the last four games, and at least 23 routes run in three of the four games. With Green down Uzomah is another player that could find himself additional targets on a weekly basis.
