#255 The Top 6 Waiver Adds For Week 10

Posted on

In today’s Fantasy Life Newsletter, we recap MNF, share the top waiver adds of the week, and debut Linda’s kicker tiers. It's 11/9. Take it away, Peter Overzet…

Week 9 wrapped up with a hilarious 29-27 Steelers victory over the Bears that sailed over the 40 point over/under

I say hilarious because it’s only fitting that the majority of the fantasy points from Week 9 were scored on Thursday and Monday night in games with low totals. 

Rookie TE Pat Freiermuth scored 2 TDs, one of which was a true grown ass man catch:

Justin Fields and the Bears offense also finally showed some signs of life. Darnell Mooney scored 2 TDs—one through the air and one on the ground. David Montgomery also returned to action and dominated the snaps and touches, which bodes well for his fantasy production down the stretch.

Today, we have our usual waiver picks from Sam, along with a new addition to the newsletter to help you select kickers. 



Rotoviz’s Sam Wallace lists his top waiver wire targets for Week 10 as well as the percentage that they are currently rostered in ESPN leagues. Take it away, Sam…

  1. Alex Collins (RB - 39.2%) - Collins was on bye this week but remains the starter for the Seahawks. Chris Carson is still out with a neck injury and has no current timetable for his return. Collins is averaging over 15 opportunities/game in his last five games.
  1. Devonta Freeman (RB - 13.4%) - In a high-scoring, come-from-behind victory over the Minnesota Vikings, Freeman posted an efficient line of 13-79-0 on the ground and 2-4-1 (on three targets) through the air. He’s now scored in three straight contests.
  1. Rashod Bateman (WR - 24.8%) - Bateman picked up right where he left off after the bye. His eight targets were good for third on the team behind Marquise Brown (12) and Mark Andrews (10), but he continues to capitalize on his opportunities. Bateman has at least six targets in each game this season.
  1. Zach Pascal (WR - 8.5%) - Pascal has at least five targets in all but one game and is averaging seven targets/game over his last three. T.Y. Hilton has only appeared in two games this season and Parris Campbell is out for several months, which only offers more intrigue for Pascal.
  1. Tim Patrick (WR - 24.7%) - Patrick erupted for his best game of the season by hauling in four of five targets for 85 yards and a score. He has only topped four receptions twice this season and hasn’t done so since Week 5 so he remains a bit shaky, but it was encouraging to see him featured.
  1. Russell Gage (WR - 16.0%) - In the absence of Calvin Ridley, Gage posted a strong line of seven receptions for 64 yards. Gage did go without a target last week, but has been a productive asset for this team as recently as last season. In 2020, he averaged almost seven targets and 11.3 fantasy points/game.

I’m very excited to introduce a new segment to the newsletter from Linda aka Lindellions. Linda has been advocating for kickers since the early 90s, as a product of a legendary collegiate place kicker in her father. Linda’s been streaming kickers for several years and ranking them for two.  Each Tuesday we’ll include her kicker tiers to help you on the waiver. Dark green = Tier 1, Light green = Tier 2, Yellow = Tier 3, and Red = Tier 4 (aka don’t use). Take it away, Linda...

* Greg Joseph has been a fun surprise this season, averaging 10.1 points per game—the third most at the kicker position. He’s rostered in 66% of ESPN leagues, so if you’re trying to fill the position because someone like Graham Gano is on bye, check your leagues, maybe luck is on your side. The Vikings have leaned on Joseph quite a bit this season and the Chargers have allowed five double-digit fantasy kicker performances this season. 

* If there ever was an upside play at kicker it’d be Chris Boswell this week against Detroit. Just before the concussion, Boswell was on a hot streak. In his game after the concussion, Boswell notched 16 points. The Lions have given up five top five kicker games so far this season and even after their bye, they’re still allowing the second most points to the kicker position. Boswell is rostered in 7% of leagues on ESPN. 

* Whoever the Colts kicker is has a great matchup this week. There’s no official word yet on Rodrigo Blankenship, but there should be later in the week. If it’s Michael Badgley this week, he’s still a good start option with the caveat being if your league deducts points for misses. Frank Reich is being super sketchy about if Specs will get his job back this season. 

The Colts offense got going last week and the Jags defense hasn’t been terrible. There’s a chance for some field goals this week, as well as a handful of extra points. Blankenship is rostered in less than 10% of leagues on ESPN and the Money Badger is rostered in 12%. This is a situation to monitor. 


We’ll be back tomorrow with early Week 10 ranks.
