Waiver Wire Targets 2016 Week 10

By Armando Marsal
Armando Marsal The waiver wire can be your best friend in fantasy football. Especially in times like these where injuries are piling up and teams are on bye. That being said, let’s waste no more time and take a look at some players you may want to target on waivers.


Jay Cutler – Bears: Cutler is coming off of his bye week and will get the start against the Bucs who are allowing 294.4 passing yards per game and have surrendered 18 passing touchdowns. With notable quarterbacks on bye this week, Cutler could help some fantasy owners get through the week. This a good matchup and one he should be able to exceed in.

Others to consider: Colin Kaepernick 49ers, Joe Flacco - Ravens

Running Back

Peyton Barber – Bucs: The Bucs have been bit by the injury bug to their running backs as they are potentially down to their fifth running back. Doug Martin (hamstring) has not practiced since Week 2 and Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) remains in a walking boot, so Barber may be in line to get the start this week if both of those backs cannot play. For those in need of running back help this week, Barber could be of service.

Rob Kelley – Redskins: Kelley is expected to receive the bulk of the work moving forward for the Redskins. He carried the ball 21 times for 87 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Bengals. It is his job to lose at this time. This week’s matchup is not the most appealing one, but Kelley should be in line for some volume, which makes him a flex option consideration for those in need. He can help down the stretch assuming he remains the workhorse for the Redskins.

Kapri Bibbs – Broncos: Bibbs played eight snaps and just touched the ball three times, but converted one of his touches for a 69 yard touchdown. It was reported after the game, that Bibbs is expected to see a larger role on this offense. That has yet to be seen, but it is worth noting. He is someone to add this week, but not someone to go all in on. It is more of a speculative add to see how this pans and to be ahead of the curve in case he continues to produce.

Others to consider: DuJuan Harris – 49ers, Darren Sproles – Eagles, Paul Perkins – Giants, Alfred Morris – Cowboys, Dion Lewis – Patriots, James Starks - Packers

Wide Receiver

Albert Wilson– Chiefs: When Maclin exited Sunday’s game with a groin injury, it was Wilson who received the most targets amongst Chiefs receivers with eight. He hauled in three passes for 42 yards and a touchdown, while playing in 42 snaps. Maclin is listed as questionable for the Chiefs following game, so Wilson could be in line for some extra work if Maclin is out. They play against Carolina who has struggled against the pass this season.

Kenny Britt – Rams: Britt continues to be a consistent producer in PPR formats, but is still available in a decent amount of leagues. He is averaging 6.8 targets, 4.6 receptions, and 73 yards per game. For those who have receivers on bye or injured, he is a very solid plug in play. The Rams face the Jets in Week 10, who have been subpar against the pass this season.

Others to consider: Rishard Matthews – Titans, J.J. Nelson – Cardinals, Cordarrelle Patterson – Vikings, Sammie Coates - Steelers

Tight End

Eric Ebron – Lions: Ebron is on a bye this week, so if you are looking for someone to play this week, he is not your guy. However, for those who are looking to improve your tight end position, Ebron is someone to strongly consider. Since returning from injury, he is averaging nine targets, seven catches, and 85.5 yards per game. He should have a prominent role on this offense moving forward and if you look at his schedule, there are some favorable matchups down the stretch for the Lions.

Others to consider: C.J. Fiedorowicz – Texans, Austin Hooper - Falcons
