With some very solid teams on a bye week, fantasy football players will need to look deep to replace their studs for Week 10.
There are only a few options left on the waiver wire that I would recommend this week, so let’s get after it.
QB: Blake Bortles(owned in 4.9% of ESPN leagues) vs. Dallas Cowboys
I expect the Jacksonville Jaguars to fall behind pretty quickly, and that will mean Bortles will continually launch the ball. I expect him to turn the ball over, but since he will most likely be playing from behind against a mediocre defense, Bortles has the chance to have a serviceable fantasy day.
RB: Not much here kids. You can either go with the headache deciding between DeAngelo Williams(owned in 36.9% of ESPN leagues) or Jonathan Stewart(owned in 19.9% of ESPN leagues), or you can hope Lorenzo Taliaferro(owned in 52.7% of ESPN leagues) finds pay dirt against the 29th ranked rush defense of the Tennessee Titans.
WR: Kenny Britt(owned in 10% of ESPN leagues) vs. Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals are allowing a boat-load of fantasy points to wide receivers(allowing the fifth-most points to be exact), and Britt is the best option at the disposal of quarterback Austin Davis. Far from an ideal situation, but if you are in a pinch, Britt may be your best option.
TE: If you have to roll with Jared Cook, he is only owned in 55.6% of ESPN leagues, and the Green Bay Packers‘ tight end Richard Rodgers looks like an intriguing option against the 23rd ranked pass defense of the Chicago Bears. The Bears’ defense is currently allowing the most points to the tight end position out of any NFL team.
