Our weekly fantasy football waiver wire takes a look at the top pickups at each position for Week 10 of the 2018 NFL season. Many of these players are still available in a majority of leagues and could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster. Others might be worth stashing on your bench or are simply just players to add to your watch list. With that in mind, here’s a list of players should you consider adding to your squad for Week 10.
For a more in-depth look at the players on this list, watch our our Week 10 waiver wire video.
Top QB pickup: Ryan Fitzpatrick (70% owned)
Fitzpatrick was the hot quarterback pickup last week after he retook the quarterback job from Jameis Winston. His ownership will continue to rise after tossing four touchdowns against the Panthers in Week 9. While he only completed 24-of-40 passes for 243 yards, to go along with two interceptions, Fitz will continue to put up numbers as the clear-cut starter in Tampa Bay. While he is not a must-start every week, he will often be in the QB1 mix depending on the matchup.
Top RB pickup: Duke Johnson Jr. (50% owned)
Johnson came to life in Cleveland’s first game with Freddie Kitchens as interim offensive coordinator. He caught all nine of his targets for 78 yards and two touchdowns while rushing one time for eight yards in Sunday’s Week 9 loss to the Chiefs. If Kitchens, a former running backs coach, restores Johnson to a role where he’s getting six-plus targets per game, he’s going to be a fantasy weapon, especially in PPR formats.
RB priority list: Duke Johnson Jr. (50% owned), Mike Davis (25% owned), Giovani Bernard (25% owned), Malcolm Brown (5% owned), Spencer Ware (10% owned), Elijah McGuire (15% owned), Darren Sproles (10% owned)
Top WR pickup: Marquez Valdes-Scantling (40% owned)
Valdes-Scantling caught 3-of-6 targets for 101 yards in Week 9 against the Patriots. He has a touchdown or 100 yards in each of his last four games. With Geronimo Allison‘s season in jeopardy with a core muscle injury, Valdes-Scantling would be further locked in as Green Bay’s No. 2 wideout behind Davante Adams.
WR priority list: Marquez Valdes-Scantling (40% owned), D.J. Moore (65% owned), Anthony Miller (10% owned), Cordarrelle Patterson (5% owned), John Ross (5% owned), Curtis Samuel (5% owned), Adam Humphries (5% owned)
Top TE pickup: Jack Doyle (30% owned)
Despite a matchup against the Jags in Week 10, Doyle still makes for a smart add. After missing five weeks with an injury, he hauled in six catches for 70 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in his first game back and then had another week to rest. Doyle was a highly-drafted TE who was forgotten because of his temporary absence. He showed that he can co-exist just fine with Eric Ebron and should be owned nearly everywhere.
