Waiver Wire week 5


Well Rush Nation, we made it. Welcome to Waiver Wire Week 10. When the season hits 10 weeks old, it really starts to feel a lot more like the end is coming. That this really is the start of the NFL season. It’s where all the hard work in season should start to pay off. However, it is also still the point where you can have an impact on your season. It is not too late.

This Waiver Wire Week 10 article is here to really help you get the pieces you need to get the crucial wins to get you through to the playoffs.


Teddy Bridgewater- 24.7% Owned Vs. PHI Week 10

There are three things that go in Teddy’s favour when it comes to this Waiver Wire pickup. 4 if you factor in there aren’t many other candidates. 1) Bridgewater is currently QB15 on the season. 2) He has the second easiest fantasy schedule for QBs remaining until Week 14. And 3) Bridgewater has the Eagles at home where he should be able to use homefield advantage to stretch this secondary and make plays. If you are streaming QBs, Teddy is a strong choice for the rest of the season.

Ben Roethlisberger- 17.0% Owned Vs. DET Week 10

I don’t normally advocate picking up Big Ben off of the Waiver Wire. However, if your Quarterback is on bye, Ben does have an easy game vs. The Lions this week. The Lions are averaging 1 sack a game in their last 3 games. They are 3rd last in sacks this season. In addition, they are 4th last in pressures, and 6th in Air Yards allowed. This should be an easy game for a veteran team, with a veteran QB and a veteran Head Coach.

Running Back

Rhamondre Stevenson- 5.9% Vs. CLE Week 10

It’s finally Rhamondre Stevenson season. He led the Patriots Running Backs in rushing yards and receiving yards. Stevenson has shown he is a true all 3 down back. And, with the injury to Damian Harris, who struggles to stay healthy, it could be Stevenson’s time to shine. The Patriots are very poor with the ball in the QB’s hands in the Redzone. So, with Harris missing time, Stevenson will likely see an uptick in goalline and redzone work.

Eno Benjamin- 0.1% Owned Vs. CAR Week 10

Benjamin saw a decent workload when he came into the game and also scored a Touchdown (something that will also annoy Edmonds owners). However, with Edmonds hurt, Benjamin will be next man up. And, if players on the offense are struggling, they will continue to run the ball more. Worth a speculative add at this stage.

Wide Receiver

Elijah Moore- 15.3% Owned Vs. BUF Week 10

Moore has been trending upwards the last couple of weeks. However, this week he really took off. As a result, he becomes a must add off the Waiver Wire. This highly drafted and rated rookie Wide Receiver has shown why the Jets were so keen to get him. And, if Mike White gets the start this week, Moore should see even more work. He is well worth a high priority add this week.

Russell Gage- 16.3% Owned @DAL Week 10

Don’t let the random touchdowns fool you in the box score. Russell Gage is the alpha Wide Receiver in this offense. He is only behind Patterson and Pitts for reads. However, he operates in the main space of the field Matt Ryan feels comfortable in. 8 targets yesterday. Against Dallas, I’ld expect even more.

Tight End

Dan Arnold- 17.3% Owned @IND Week 10

Arnold put up 4-60 in a bore-fest vs the Bills in Week 9. As a result, he looked like their best offensive player. He will send to put up those 4-60 games more often than not. However, he will carry Touchdown upside most games. Give him an add this week if you need Tight End help.

Mo Alie-Cox- 12.1% Owned Vs. JAX Week 10

His ownership went down almost 5% last week!!! WHY!!! He’s the best Touchdown option out there in this minefield of bizarre, bland Tight End Waiver Wire Week 10 Pickups. Ok, he’s not scored 2 weeks in a row now. But he has the Jags next week. Let’s see that ownership climb a bit.


Michael Badgley- 12.4% Owned Vs. JAX Week 10

Badgley put up points on Thursday and is still yet to miss a kick for the Colts. This week, with hope, he should get some more Field Goal opportunities to get him into double digits.


Tennessee Titans- 8.0% Owned Vs. NO Week 10

The Titans defense has really come alive in the last few weeks. They have made some huge plays against great offensive teams and great offensive lines. This week, they play the New Orleans Saints, who are struggling on offense. Therefore, dial up the Titans and let this defense make some plays for your team.

Don’t forget, all of my picks come from those owned under 30% on ESPN.com Fantasy Football. Also, if you want to hear other suggestions, subscribe to the 5 Yard Rush Podcast and listen to the Waiver Wire Podcast for other suggestions.
