After several weeks of action, the NFL fantasy football waiver wire is full of players who could help enhance fantasy football rosters as Week 10 approaches.
Is your current starting fantasy quarterback going down the wrong path? Perhaps, your star wide receiver keeps falling short of expectations. If your fantasy team needs help with four teams on a bye (Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, Miami Dolphins, and Philadelphia Eagles — amongst multiple player injuries — check out the best fantasy football waiver wire pickups for NFL Week 10.
Week 10 fantasy football waiver wire: Quarterbacks
Joshua Dobbs, Minnesota Vikings
Dobbs is a top waiver wire quarterback to target in Week 10 after he led the Vikings to a thrilling win, taking over for the concussed Jaren Hall. Dobbs scored three touchdowns and recorded 224 total yards less than a week after he was traded to the Vikings. Provided he stays healthy, Dobbs will be the starting QB down the stretch.
Taylor Heinicke, Atlanta Falcons
Finishing within the top-10 fantasy quarterbacks last week, Heinicke will start again in Week 10 as the preferred option over Desmond Ridder. This is after Heinicke threw for 268 yards, one TD, and rushed the ball for another 20 yards in a close loss to the Vikings.
Tommy DeVito, New York Giants
Unfortunately, the NFL lost another quarterback (Daniel Jones) to a season ending ACL injury. This makes DeVito a Week 10 waiver wire pickup for those in complete desperation mode to fill the QB slot. It’s not a pretty situation, especially with the Giants heading to Dallas in Week 10.
Week 10 fantasy football waiver wire: Runninng Backs
Keaton Mitchell, Baltimore Ravens
Mitchell will be a top Week 10 waiver wire running back after popping out of nowhere and rushing for 138 yards and a touchdown in major blowout over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. If the Ravens plan is to feature Mitchell as the lead back, those who pick him up will acquire quite the fantasy football gem.
Antonio Gibson, Washington Commanders
Over his past two games, Gibson has seen an uptick in his touches (18 for 118 yards) and has scored double-digit fantasy points. Those seeking some RB depth or coming up empty-handed might find Gibson hanging out on the Week 10 waiver wire. There are worst options .
Ty Chandler, Minnesota Vikings
With Cam Akers out with a torn Achilles, Ty Chandler will be the backup RB behind Alexander Mattison. While there is not a ton of fantasy appeal at the moment, Chandler makes for a good handcuff to snag from the Week 10 waiver wire, if your roster has a deep bench.
Week 10 fantasy football waiver wire: Wide Receivers
Tank Dell, Houston Texans
If Dell is available on your Week 10 waiver wire, pick him up! Dell last drew 11 targets for which he recorded six catches for 114 yards and two touchdowns in a narrow victory agaisnt Tampa Bay. The chemistry between he and rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud is unmatched.
Noah Brown, Houston Texans
Sticking with the Texans, Noah Brown will be a top waiver wire pickup in Week 10 after a smashing 153-yard, one-TD performance. He caught all six of his targets and those who claim him can only hope for more when the Texans head to Cincinnati next Sunday.
Khalil Shakir, Buffalo Bills
Over his last three games, Shakir has caught every one of his 14 targets for a total of 184 yards, making him worthy of sliding into a flex spot for those in need. Pick him up off your Week 10 waiver wire if you’re roster is looking bleak with several top fantasy studs taking their bye this week.
Demario Douglas, New England Patriots
Douglas tied for a team-high seven targets with Kendrick Bourne sidelined for the season. While catching passes from Mac Jones is always unpredictable, Douglas makes for a lower-end fantasy WR option if you’re coming up shorthanded.
Week 10 fantasy football waiver wire: Tight Ends
Jonnu Smith, Atlanta Falcons
With Taylor Heinicke slated to start on Sunday, pickup Jonnu Smith off your Week 10 waiver wire. The chemistry seems to be legit after Smith caught five-of-six of his targets for 100 yards and a touchdown. This is much to the dismay for those who roster Smith’s fellow TE Kyle Pitts.
Jake Ferguson, Dallas Cowboys
Jake Ferguson will be a popular Week 10 waiver wire pickup if he’s there for the taking. Ferguson was second in targets behind CeeDee Lamb, with 10 for which he recorded seven receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown. This marks the second week in a row Ferguson has found the end zone.
