Fantasy Football 2015: Week 10 Sleeper Picks
Taking a Look at the Week 10 Waiver Wire and Sleeper Trends in Fantasy
November 13, 2015
It’s Friday, and around here that means it’s time once again to check out some of the fantasy football sleeper options heading into the NFL’s Week 10. We’ve got some interesting names being added from the depths of the waiver wire as potential starters, so let’s check out the numbers and matchups to see if anyone’s right for your roster.
Jay Ajayi, RB, Miami Dolphins: Ajayi has been a waiver wire fixture over the past few days, and the coaching staff in Miami is apparently going to give him some more looks moving forward.
Ajayi logged 41 yards on just five carries last week against the Bills, so it makes sense that the team wants to see more of him. He’ll chip away a few carries from Lamar Miller and could turn them into a big fantasy return.

Matt Jones, RB, Washington Redskins: The Saints are fast becoming a dream matchup this season for offensive players, as their defense is among the worst in the league. That will benefit Jones this week, even though he logged just 27 yards on the ground his last time out.
Jones seems to be getting more work than Alfred Morris these days, so he’s probably the guy to have in the Redskins backfield. He should have no problem finding holes in the front on Sunday.
Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys: Speaking of great matchups, the Cowboys receivers have one this week in the Buccaneers, whose pass defense is akin to tissue paper. Beasley is coming off his career-best outing, logging nine receptions for 112 yards and two touchdowns.
There’s little chance Beasley will score twice again here, but he does have a realistic shot at putting up double-digit fantasy numbers if he has a good day in targets.
Eric Ebron, TE, Detroit Lions: Ebron is off most fantasy owners’ radar since he’s coming out of a bye week, and before that he logged just three grabs for 24 yards in Kansas City.
This is a new week and a new opponent, however, and Ebron’s matchup looks good. The Packers are pretty permissive to opposing tight ends and will likely jump out to a quick lead, forcing the Lions to pass the ball in catch-up mode.
Chris Givens, WR, Baltimore Ravens: There’s not a lot to get excited about on the Ravens’ offense these days, but Givens is on the upswing. He seems to have the confidence of the coaching staff, and is listed as the No. 2 wide receiver on the depth chart.
Givens is a badly-needed deep threat for the Ravens, and if he can get some chemistry going with Joe Flacco we could see some big-play potential against a pretty soft Jaguars pass defense on Sunday.
