Fantasy Football Update 11/11/16: Week 10 Sleeper Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 10
November 11, 2016
Week 10 is already underway in the NFL, so it’s high time we fantasy football owners took a look at the waiver wire and examined all the trending plays and sleeper possibilities out there. Let’s visit a few notable players and see if anyone’s right for your lineup.
Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: We’ve touched on Barber’s value this week a little bit, but he’s worth a close examination. Sure, he’s coming off 31 yards and 5.5 fantasy points in Week 9, but didn’t get to run much due to the high game score.

Barber has an unfavorable matchup on paper against the Bears this week, but he’s one of the few guys you’ll find on the waiver wire at RB who will definitely get a good workload.
Eli Rogers, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: After a string of unsuccessful fantasy weeks, Rogers put up a nice effort in Baltimore last Sunday, with six catches on 10 targets for 103 yards overall.
Rogers may be able to find a few holes in the Cowboys defense this week, as Dallas will likely be focused on Antonio Brown.
Paul Perkins, RB, New York Giants: For those of you scraping the barrel for running back options, Perkins is a good deeper-league fit right now. He played 34 percent of the Giants’ snaps in Week 9, which is fewer than Rashad Jennings, but still got 11 rushes.
Perkins is still second in line for work near the end zone, but he should see enough touches to be a viable flex play in larger leagues.
DuJuan Harris, RB, San Francisco 49ers: Let’s go RB one more time and check out Harris, who is available in about 2/3 of the leagues out there. He had a great outing against the Saints, bagging 18.2 points with 142 yards and a TD.
Harris won’t be in for a repeat performance this week, as the Cardinals are stout against the run. Still, for those in need of a lottery ticket, he might make sense as a score-dependent guy.
Lance Kendricks, TE, Los Angeles Rams: An up-and-coming TE out there on the waiver wire is Kendricks, who has seen his role increase over the last three weeks.
Kendricks has a total of 29 targets in the last three games, with 19 catches in that span. He’s also hit at least nine fantasy points twice in three weeks.
