Fantasy Football 2014: Week 10 Waiver Wire Update
Taking a Look at the Week 10 Waiver Wire Trends
November 4, 2014
It’s Tuesday, and around here that means it’s time for our weekly dose of fantasy football waiver wire tidbits. This will be the Week 10 edition, and as usual we’ve got some interesting players emerging into fantasy conversations everywhere. Let’s check out the current trends and see if anyone’s right for your team.
Mark Sanchez, QB, Philadelphia Eagles: Sanchez has gone from butt-fumbling lows in New York to legitimate fantasy consideration in Philly. Filling in for the injured Nick Foles, he posted 202 yards, two touchdowns and two picks (one of which wasn’t his fault) in three quarters of relief.
Foles will be out for a month or two with a broken collarbone, giving Sanchez ample opportunity to prove himself. He’s actually not a bad pickup, considering that offense.

Dallas Cowboys Defense: If you can still snag Dallas’ defense, now’s the time to do it. They played well against Arizona, even though the Cards scored 28 points. The Cowboys D posted a pair of sacks, a pick and a touchdown, their second of the year.
With Jacksonville coming up on the schedule, the Cowboys are the hot defense to pick up for streamers. Just keep in mind they’ve got a bye in Week 11.
Martavis Bryant, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: Those fantasy owners who passed on Bryant as a fluke after his three touchdowns in two weeks are slapping themselves in the head right now. He posted two more touchdowns in Big Ben’s aerial assault against the Ravens, giving him five scores in three games.
Bryant has carved himself a place among the Steelers’ receivers, and is a big red-zone target in Pittsburgh. He should be owned everywhere ahead of a cupcake matchup against the Jets.
Terrance West, RB, Cleveland Browns: There’s not much out there to get excited about when it comes to running backs, but West holds some decent fantasy value. He’s coming off a game against Tampa Bay in which he posted 11 points with 48 rush yards and a receiving score.
West still is technically a No. 2 back to Ben Tate, but he out-touched Tate in Week 9. Considering the short turnaround this week, we don’t expect the Browns to change things up too much.
Alfred Blue, RB, Houston Texans: Among the thin options at RB this week is Blue, who is a trending add behind Arian Foster’s groin injury this week. He’s had issues with that particular ailment in the past, which could lead to a heavy load for Blue in the near future.
Now, this is more of a speculation play--keep in mind the Texans are on a bye this week--but if this injury turns out to be something nagging, Blue will be a hot ticket next week. If you’ve got the room and the need, roster him now while you can.
