Week 10 Waiver Wire Pick Ups by @RFLRedZone
Even though they are not listed, there is quite a few running backs that can be had. For instance, I
would look into Tre Mason 59%, Terrance West 33%, or even Chris Johnson at 56% ownership.
What I do bring in this article is a good mixture of veterans and rookies. Players that haven’t
been talked about in a long-time such as Kenny Britt and Mark Sanchez. Rookies Teddy
Bridgewater and Jarvis Landry make a return to waiver wire beast list, and I take a stab at little
known Mychal Rivera.
Kenny Britt – WR – Rams – Owned in 11% of CBS leagues
Kenny Britt will become the number one receiver now that Brian Quick is down with a season
ending injury. He was only targeted four times, and he caught two of those for 32 yards,
including a touchdown. He almost was a target for a second touchdown, but Austin Davis
underthrew the pass. The Rams are rely more on the running game, but you cannot ignore a
number one receiver, even if it is on a poor offense like the Rams.
Mychal Rivera – TE – Raiders – Owned in 4% of CBS leagues
Oakland Raiders don’t usually make a list such as this. But, when a tight end gets eight
receptions for 38 yards on 11 targets, people take notice. Derek Carr likes to look his way, as he
had 11 targets last week as well against the Browns. As Carr continues to grow in this offense, so
will Rivera. Next week he faces the Broncos, and like the Seahawks, they have a hard-time
containing the tight end. On the season he has 28 receptions for 222 yards and two touchdowns.
Mark Sanchez – QB – Eagles – Owned in 1% of CBS leagues
When Nick Foles left the game with a shoulder injury, Mark Sanchez was counted on to deliver.
He did, as he threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns. He also had two interceptions, so leagues
that enforce this, should heed, as he will throw plenty of these. Foles most likely will be out
through your fantasy season, so the gig is Sanchez’s. The important aspect to keep in mind is he
will be in Chip Kelly’s offense, and should continue to play well.
Alfred Blue – RB – Texans – Owned in 24% of CBS leagues
I would particularly look into Alfred Blue, if Arian Foster is out for any extended period of time,
he makes an excellent pick-up. Foster suffered from a groin injury in a non-contact play, and as
he was walking off, he slammed his helmet into the ground. The offensive line has played well,
opening holes for Foster. If Blue can do well, he can carve out a nice position for himself, and
have the Texans look at often injured Arian Foster. Blue rushed 13 times for 78 yards and caught
one pass for 10 yards, but, keep in mind the Texans have their bye week this Sunday.
Jarvis Landry – WR – Dolphins – Owned in 5% of CBS leagues
Even though he is not the number one receiver for the Miami Dolphins, and with Mike Wallace
that isn’t going to change. Landry was targeted six times and he caught five passes for 46 yards
and one touchdown, and with his continued progression he makes a nice roster spot for your
fantasy team. He has shown that he can run great routes and get open, which should lead to more
targets and opportunities as the season continues.
