Fantasy Football Update 11/8/16: Week 10 Sleeper Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 10
November 8, 2016
Week 9 in the NFL is officially in the books, and it’s time to start looking forward to Week 10 on the fantasy football waiver wire. Let’s check out a few trending matchup plays and sleepers out there so you can get those claims filed in your league.
Kapri Bibbs, RB, Denver Broncos: Here’s a relative newcomer to the waiver wire. Bibbs is a hot trend right now, as there’s speculation he may take over for Devontae Booker as the lead Denver back against New Orleans this weekend.

Bibbs played a whopping 46 of 56 snaps against the Raiders, and ended up coming up with 14 fantasy points thanks to a 69-yard TD catch. If you’re RB-needy, get that claim in now.
JJ Nelson, WR, Arizona Cardinals: We’ve already talked about Nelson a little bit this week, but he definitely deserves a good look in most leagues. He posted eight catches on 12 targets for 79 yards and two touchdowns in Carolina.
Nelson is quickly emerging as a go-to guy in the Cardinals offense, and he’s still available in around 85 percent of fantasy leagues out there. You should definitely kick the tires here at least, as he’s going into a great matchup against the weak 49ers.
Rob Kelley, RB, Washington Redskins: Not too many people are focused on Kelley this week, as he’s coming out of a bye. That said, he’s cemented as the Redskins’ top back and is coming off 14.7 points in Week 8.
Kelley will reportedly receive the bulk of the carries, but if you’re thinking of picking him up keep in mind that he’s going up against a pretty tough Minnesota run defense this week.
San Diego Chargers Defense: Those owners who like to stream defenses might want to try their hands at San Diego this week. The Chargers have up up at least 12 fantasy points in three of the last four weeks, and bagged two touchdowns with two picks and a fumble recovery against Tennessee.
That makes four touchdowns on the year for the San Diego squad, who get a mid-level matchup against Miami this weekend.
Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Barber posted just 5.5 fantasy points in Week 9, with 31 yards on 11 carries and four catches for 24 yards. Much of that was due to the Bucs abandoning the run in an effort to keep up with the Falcons, however.
Barber has a much safer offense-to-offense matchup against the Bears this week, but Chicago has been very good against opposing running backs. The play is a little sketchy, but he works as a low-end play.
