Waiver Wire Watch List: Week 10
Quarterback: After getting his first career start, Nick Mullins, is the quarterback you should add off of the waiver wire for week 10. In his first start, Mullens threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns. What this past game showed was that Kyle Shanahan is an offensive genius who can scheme up open receivers and get production from any quarterback like almost no one else. That bodes well for Mullens this week. The 49ers play the Giants, and they have an average defense who Shanahan and Mullens should be able to exploit.
Running Back: If Eagles running back Wendell Smallwood is still not rostered in your league, he is one of the few good running back options left on the waiver wire. Smallwood is very involved in both the running and the passing game, so he has plenty of opportunities week in and week out to get you solid numbers. He will continue to be the feature back for this offense as long as he stays healthy.
Wide Receiver: Browns rookie receiver Antonio Callaway has a good matchup against a Falcons defense that ranks 29th in the NFL in passing defense. Callaway is by far the second best receiver on the Browns, and he and Mayfield have a solid connection. Callaway has the chance to use his speed and explode against a weak Falcons secondary.
Tight End: Broncos tight end Jeff Heuerman broke out last week against the Texans for 10 catches, 81 yards, and a touchdown. He won’t have any use this week because his team is on a buy, but with the tight end position being so weak, he could be good to have as a solid option for the home stretch of the fantasy season.
