Even if your fantasy football team is 9-0 in the 2014 season, it still isn’t perfect. Finding key waive wire finds now is how championships are won.
Heading into Week 10, there are plenty of players worth adding to your roster. I’m not looking at just picking up players who are serviceable options if Andrew Luck is on a bye week; I am looking for players you could actually start for the rest of the season.
Charles Sims: Running Back, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
You can read all about my man crush on Charles Sims here. He was given an extra rest period for a Week 9 matchup against the Cleveland Browns, but he should be ready to pounce against the 25th ranked rush defense of the Atlanta Falcons.
Denard Robinson: Running Back, Jacksonville Jaguars
He will most likely be fully owned by Week 10, after seeing an increase in ownership of 27.2% in Week 9 for ESPN standard scoring leagues. Robinson has averaged 109.6 rushing yards per game over the last three weeks, and he has also averaged 19 rushing attempts over the last three games as well, which shows the Jaguars’ coaching staff is committed to Robinson as the main back for Jacksonville. If Robinson is somehow still available in your league, get him before he is gone.
Martavis Bryant: Wide Receiver, Pittsburgh Steelers
Bryant returned to action in Week 7, and he has currently hauled in five touchdowns in three games. It obviously helps that Ben Roethlisberger has thrown 12 touchdown passes in the past two weeks, but at 6-foot-4, 211 pounds, Bryant is a huge redzone target for Big Ben. He has several cushy matchups for the remainder of the Steelers’ schedule.
Jarvis Landry: Wide Receiver, Miami Dolphins
After a slow start to the season, Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins’ offense are finally clicking. Landry has been able to compliment Mike Wallace, and the rookie receiver has averaged 4.5 receptions over the last four games. You may have receivers currently providing more consistency, but Landry provides excellent depth on your roster. If Tannehill and Landry continue showcasing a nice rapport, he could quickly work his way in as a starter in your lineup.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Defense
In the next two weeks, the Steelers’ defense will face Michael Vick and the New York Jets in Week 10, and rookie signal caller Zach Mettenberger and the Tennessee Titans in Week 11.The competition is more stiff after that, but the Steelers’ defense will have an excellent opportunity in Week 15 against Matt Ryan.
