Fantasy Football Update 11/12/16: Week 10 Key Matchups
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 10
November 12, 2016
We’ve got just one more day until Week 10 resumes in the NFL, so it’s a good time to look at the fantasy football waiver wire to see if there are any last-minute adds who can help put us over the top. Let’s check out a few sleepers and matchup plays who might put up big points this week.
Dallas Cowboys Defense: Dallas is a popular pickup on defense this week, as they’ve bagged eight points or more in two of their last three outings.

The Cowboys will get Pittsburgh this week, and the Steelers have been skidding on offense lately. They should be better with a healthier Roethlisberger under center, but there’s still plenty of room for defensive scoring from Dallas.
San Diego Chargers Defense: San Diego is another popular defense pickup this week. They’ve been great over the last four weeks, bagging at least 12 points in three games.
The Chargers will get Miami this week, which looks like a mid-range matchup on paper. That said, San Diego is on quite a roll and should put up a nice outing.
JJ Nelson, WR, Arizona Cardinals: Nelson is a must-add in most fantasy leagues out there, thanks to his 12 targets, eight catches, 79 yards and two touchdowns against Carolina in his last outing.
Nelson has been named Arizona’s No. 2 receiver this week, which further bolsters his fantasy potential. He gets a nice matchup against the 49ers this week as well.
Chris Ivory, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: Ivory hasn’t hit double-digits in fantasy yet this year, but he’s come close a couple of times. That includes 8.7 points (with a fumble) on 107 yards against KC.
Ivory might be worth a look in deeper leagues this weekend, as he’s got a favorable matchup looming against the Texans, who are in the top 10 in points allowed to opposing running backs this year.
Lance Kendricks, TE, Los Angeles Rams: We’ve talked about Kendricks a couple of times this week, and he’s still available in over 80 percent of leagues.
Here’s the good news on Kendricks: he’s got 29 targets over the last three weeks, and has hit nine fantasy points twice in that span. He’s a big part of the Rams’ offensive attack, and gets a mid-level matchup against the Giants this week.
