Week 10: NFL Waiver Wire Pickups | Fantasy Football

Click Here >> Current Weekly Rankings, Waivers, Start – Sit

Jaguars vs. Chiefs

This week’s waiver wire is headlined by wide receiver Chris Chambers. Chambers was released by the Chargers last week and then signed days later with the Chiefs.

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.

Running Backs

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.

Wide Receivers

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.

    I need help I need two rb so i have pierre thomas and benson. I need two wide receivers so i have colston and wallace in….however I also have calvin johnson…do I use him this week and one of the other guys as a flex? I also have shonn greene and hakeem nicks and austin collie. additionally what defense, steelers or saints. thanks

    Ok so if I understand this correctly you are already starting Thomas and Benson at running back…Good.

    As far as your two receivers I would go with Colston and Calvin at this time. Calvin is coming along and unless he has a relapse in practice he should be in your lineup.

    For a flex play I would go with Shonn Greene this week. The Jets play the Jaguars at home and they should run all over them. This mean Greene would be a decent play.

    Other than that Wallace would be your next best bet for a flex play this week.

    Austin Collie injured himself last week and Nicks is on a bye week.

    For defense I would go with the Saints all the way this week. They play the sorry Rams offense.

    Steven Jackson should have a good day but the Saints will have some fun against the Rams sad passing game and poor ability to protect the quarterback.

    Would trading the Steelers defense for the Seahawk defense make sense…. My gut says NO…. Anyone??

  • Sean Douglas- fantasy-info

    I wouldn't trade the Steelers defense away for the Seahawks if someone paid me….Well maybe if someone paid me but that is about the only way.

    Just look at the Steelers next five games.

    @ Chiefs
    @ Ravens
    @ Browns

    Out of those five games, you have at least three great matchups between the Chiefs, Raiders and Browns.

    I would sit with the Steelers as they should be a playoff team and their defense should be fine. At least start them in those three games, but they are a decent play every week from here on out.

    Week 15 they play the Packers but that isn't so bad because Aaron Rodgers gets sacked a lot and makes careless mistakes with the football. The Steelers feed on that kind of quarterback.
