Week 10: NFL Waiver Wire Pickups | Fantasy Football
I personally wondered if Chambers was done because he didn’t produce much in the Chargers passing game.
This past weekend Chambers proved other wise as he had two touchdowns and should help the Chiefs improve.
Below we have the top players you might want to pay attention to, for waiver pickups. Even if you don’t select a waiver (or have already done so) it’s good to keep these names in mind for the future weeks.
Titans- Vince Young
I suggested that fantasy owners grab Vince Young off the waiver wire last week, and I’m doing so again. The Titans have turned things around in the past two weeks and are starting to finally get their team healthy.
Young is progressing as a quarterback and has three talented receivers to throw to. He also has Chris Johnson out of the backfield and Young can still score on the ground.
Raiders- Darren McFadden
Many fantasy football owners have already given up on Raiders running back Darren McFadden and cut him weeks ago. This week McFadden is back at practice from his knee injury and is expected to start against the Chiefs.
As long as McFadden doesn’t have a setback this week in practice I would suggest you grab him off the waver wire. McFadden has had lots of success against the Chiefs in his first two years in the league.
Redskins- Ladell Betts
It is already being reported that Clinton Portis will likely miss this weekend’s game against the Broncos because of a concussion. This means backup Ladell Betts will get the starting job and is a sneaky one week play for fantasy owners.
Betts helped fantasy owners a few years ago in getting to the fantasy playoffs, and he had a respectable game last week against the Falcons. If you need a decent flex play option for this weekend you could do worse than Betts.
Chiefs- Chris Chambers
Last week was a busy one for wide receiver Chris Chambers. First he was released by the San Diego Chargers and then was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs. On Sunday Chambers played his first game with the Chiefs and had three receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns.
The Chiefs aren’t a very good team and will give up a good amount of points most weeks. This means the Chiefs will have to throw the football.
