Fantasy Football Update 11/10/16: Week 10 Waiver Wire Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 10
November 10, 2016
Today marks the beginning of the NFL’s Week 10, and that also means it’s time for us owners to check out the fantasy football waiver wire. Let’s visit with a few of the trending players out there and see who’s available.
Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: We’ve talked about Barber a little bit this week, but he’s definitely a guy to keep an eye on. He posted just 31 yards (with four catches) and 5.5 fantasy points last week, but fell victim to the flow of the high-scoring game.

For now—and that means this week—Barber is still the man in the Tampa Bay committee backfield. Use him against the Bears while you can—his value won’t last.
CJ Prosise, RB, Seattle Seahawks: We’ve also talked about Prosise once or twice this week, and he’s still hanging around as a heavy add.
Christine Michael isn’t doing so well on the ground for the Seahawks, and the Seahawks coaching staff has dropped hints that Prosise will play quite a bit this week. He gets a mid-level matchup against the Patriots this weekend.
Paul Perkins, RB, New York Giants: Perkins is an interesting play this week. he bagged 11 carries with 32 yards against Philly, and played 22 of 64 snaps on offense.
Perkins is still a step down from Rashad Jennings, but may get enough touches to warrant lower-end consideration in fantasy. He gets Cincinnati this week.
New York Jets Defense: Okay, Gang Green doesn’t exactly inspire confidence on defense these days—which is a weird thing to say—but the Jets are worth a look this weekend.
New York will be playing the woeful LA Rams, who have given up the second-most fantasy points to opposing defenses. The Jets have only hit double-digits once this year, but they’ve got a decent shot here.
CJ Fiedorowicz, TE, Houston Texans: Ever since Week 4, Fiedorowicz has quietly been putting up nice numbers. In his last five games, he’s hit at least seven targets four times and has scored three touchdowns.
Fiedorowicz doesn’t put up a whole lot of yardage (he’s a Dennis-Pitta-type like that), but he is consistently involved in the offensive game plan. That makes him an excellent low-end TE this week.
