Fantasy Football 2013: Week 10 Waiver Wire Receivers
Waiver Wire TEs and WRs for Week 10 in Fantasy Football
November 5, 2013
The fantasy football waiver wire has been a busy place over these past few weeks, what with the NFL bye weeks kicking in and injury concerns all over the place. We’ve got another thin round ahead in Week 10, so prudent fantasy owners will be looking to add some bodies to their rosters. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the viable waiver wire candidates at the tight end and wide receiver positions.
Riley Cooper, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: Cooper had by far the best performance of his year this past weekend against the Raiders. He was on the receiving end of three of Nick Foles’ seven touchdown passes, resulting in 139 yards on five grabs. Cooper has had good games in three of the last four weeks, posting 120 yards (and a TD) against the Buccaneers and 88 yards against Dallas. We’d feel better about Cooper if Foles starts against Green Bay, but he’s not a bad lower-level option even if Vick is in there.

Aaron Dobson, WR, New England Patriots: Dobson and the Pats are on a bye this week, so you’ll have to wait to use him. That said, he’s coming off his first career multi-TD performance against the Steelers, with 130 yards on five receptions and two scores. He was targeted nine times. Dobson has now scored in consecutive weeks, and has tallied at least 60 yards in three of his last four outings. If you’ve got the roster space and need help at WR, he’s worth a pickup.
Jerricho Cotchery, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: On the other side of the Week 9 game between the Pats and the Steelers, we have Cotchery. He exploded for three touchdowns and 96 yards on seven receptions in the losing effort, with the vast majority coming in the second half. Cotchery proved himself as a red-zone target, with two of his three scores coming from less than ten yards. With any luck, Ben Roethlisberger will remember that and look his way this week against Buffalo.
Timothy Wright, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Wright has eligibility at both WR and TE in some leagues, which gives him a little extra appeal heading into Week 10. He’s been making some fantasy noise over the past couple of weeks, with his most recent performance resulting in 58 yards and a score on four grabs against the Seahawks. A week before that, Wright had five receptions for 48 yards and a TD against the Panthers, so he’s trending in the right direction. Probably the best TE option out there right now. He gets Miami this week.
Coby Fleener, TE, Indianapolis Colts: If you can’t land Wright, Fleener is worth a look as a bye-week or injury-replacement option. He’s got two decent weeks in a row under his belt, with his most recent performance against the Texans logging three receptions for 64 yards. Fleener is a risky proposition, as he has a tendency to disappear from time to time, but he’s also got a good chance to get into the end zone as well. The Colts will get the Rams at home this week, which isn’t too bad of a matchup.
