WAIVER WIRE WEEK 10
The turn has happened and your playoffs are in sight. We had six byes in Waiver Wire Week 9 and it looks like we will have four byes in Waiver Wire Week 10. Injuries and trades help change the landscape of every league. However, there is an opportunity to find a diamond in the rough, which could mean the difference between playing for the championship or playing in the toilet bowl.
Remember, this article contains players rostered in 30% or less in total leagues. Ownership data is coming from ESPN.com Fantasy Football.

Jacoby Brissett(CLE)7.5%- @ – MIA
Jacoby Brissett is also coming off a week 9 bye. Week 8 he threw 17/22 and 278 yards with 1 touchdown, and 1 fumble. While rushing 6 times for 12 yards and 1 touchdown, getting 20.32 FPTS for the game. Week 10 has the Cleveland Browns traveling to Miami to face the Dolphins.

Gainwell is a touchdown-dependent Running Back. Right now he is seeing 26.7% of the snaps behind Miles Sander’s 60.5%. The Commanders are averaging 17.7 points per game, while the Eagles are getting 28.1 points per game. Look for the Eagles to score early, like they have been doing and go to the run to slow down the clock. Gainwell should see more usage as the season continues.
