Jets Elijah McGuire Among Top Week 10 Waiver Adds

Jets Elijah McGuire Among Top Week 10 Waiver Adds premium
Joe Gallina November 6, 2018 4:42PM EDT

Week 10 Waiver Wire Work: Considering Some 49ers

With four teams on a bye this week, Fantasy Football players will have to find replacements for top producers like Adam Thielen and DeAndre Hopkins. We dug deep this week and came up with eight players at various positions with single digit ownership in CBSSports.com leagues. They could potentially help your Fantasy Football team in Week 10 and beyond.

Nick Mullens, QB, San Francisco 49ers, (2% ownership in CBSSports.com leagues)

If you play in a two QB league you owe it to yourself to add Mullens, provided that you don’t have to drop anyone too valuable off your roster. Mullens threw for 262 yards, three TDs and didn’t take a sack or throw an interception in front of a national television audience this past Thursday.  He exhibited great poise and confidence and is known for his toughness and ability to make quick off balance throws. He threw 87 TDs playing for Southern Mississippi and he’ll get a second start for the 49ers as they take on the Giants in Week 10.

Waiver Priority: Low, unless you play in a two QB league. Mullens throws a quality ball, and has good matchups in Week 10 and Week 11 (against the Buccaneers). Let’s see how he progresses before we make any long-term commitments to put him in our lineups.

FAAB – Five percent ought to do it in one QB leagues. You may have to up it to 15 to 20 percent in two QB leagues.

Elijah McGuire, RB, New York Jets, (30%)

McGuire had been recovering from preseason foot surgery and finally made his season debut in Week Nine. He led Jets RBs in snaps played by a wide margin (McGuire 36, Isaiah Crowell 23, Trenton Cannon, 7). With Crowell seemingly on the injury report every week McGuire could eventually take over lead back duties at any time. Until then, his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield could likely keep him busy with the Jets often playing from behind. When Crowell is active, his Fantasy value is highest in PPR scoring leagues.

Waiver Priority: Medium. Running backs are always highly valuable, but even more so this deep into the season.

FAAB – 10 to 15 percent.

Theo Riddick, RB, Detroit Lions, (20%)

Riddick played his first game in almost a month in Week Nine and promptly caught seven of his eight targets for 36 yards. Many Fantasy owners lost patience and dropped him while waiting for his knee to heal. He played in 56 percent of the Lions offensive snaps and is a must-add in PPR scoring leagues.

Waiver Priority: Medium.

FAAB – 10 to 15 percent.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, Green Bay Packers, (44%)

With Geronimo Allison on IR, Valdes-Scantling’s role in the Packers’ pass offense should continue to grow. Aaron Rodgers knows he can rely on Davante Adams every week, but Randall Cobb hasn’t given Valdes-Scantling much competition. Cobb hasn’t produced a double digit Fantasy scoring game in PPR since Week One. Valdes-Scantling has provided PPR Fantasy Football owners with four straight games of double digit scoring.

Waiver Priority: High. Valdes-Scantling has a Hall of Fame QB throwing him the ball in a pass-first offense. He has high upside going forward.

FAAB – Up to 20 percent.

Adam Humphries, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, (4%)

Humphries caught all eight of his targets for 82 yards, and he scored two TDs in Week Nine. He’s had at least 76 receiving yards in three of his last four games, and has scored double-digit Fantasy points in traditional PPR scoring leagues in four of his last six games. With defenses keying on top Bucs receivers like Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson, Humphries should continue to post moderately productive Fantasy stats.

Waiver Priority: Low.

FAAB – 5 to 10 percent.

Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, New England Patriots, (4%)

As Fantasy Football players know, trying to predict the Patriots’ offensive scheme from week to week is extremely hard. Patterson had been primarily used in the Pats’ return game, however  a new RB role has developed for him over the past two weeks with Sony Michel nursing his knee injury. The Vikings and Raiders never fully utilized his unique skill set, but Bill Belichick has found a way (at least temporarily) to put Patterson on the Fantasy Football radar. He’s officially listed as a WR, but rushed 11 times for 61 yards, scored a TD and caught a pass for seven yards in Week Nine. With Michel’s Week 10 role still unclear and James White tweaking his knee in Week Nine (he was able to finish the game), Patterson might once again be in the mix in the Patriots’ upcoming game against the Titans.

Waiver Priority: Low, because of the Patriots’ inconsistency in utilizing their players. At the same time he may draw some attention because he plays for the Patriots.

FAAB – Up to 10 percent.

John Ross, WR, Cincinnati Bengals, (4%)

On a personal note, it seems that every time I own shares of A.J. Green he has a toe injury to deal with. He is expected to miss at least two games. With Tyler Boyd already widely owned, John Ross is a Bengals receiver that might see an increase in targets. Ross is known for his blazing speed, but so far he hasn’t been able to convert it into Fantasy production. He had been dealing with a groin injury before his Week Nine bye. Monitor his progress as game time approaches. Bengals wide receiver Alex Erickson is even more widely available. He could see an uptick in volume, but should only be considered in deep (14 teams or more) leagues.

Waiver Priority: Low. Based on Ross’ past performance and the fact that he is coming off of a groin injury, he’s a risky play.

FAAB – To quote “The Fantasy Exec” Corey Parson, a dollar will make you holla!

Maurice Harris, WR, Washington Redskins, (1%)

Harris had his most productive game since replacing Jamison Crowder, working out of the slot position in Week Nine. He was targeted 12 times and recorded 10 receptions for 124 yards. If Crowder is forced to miss a fifth straight game this week Harris could exploit a Buccaneers defense that had allowed the most Fantasy points to slot receivers heading into Week Nine.

Waiver Priority: Low. While you should keep your expectations in check, he does have an upcoming juicy matchup.

FAAB – You might be able to get him for free, but you can bid up to 3 percent if you really need the help at WR.

Richie James, WR, San Francisco 49ers, (0%)

James caught two passes for 60 yards in Week Nine. He was an elusive big play receiver who had a knack for adding yards after the catch while at Middle Tennessee State. He averaged 13.4 yards per catch in his college career and snagged 107 and 105 receptions as a freshman and sophomore. With Marquise Goodwin and Pierre Garcon often dealing with injuries, James should be considered a speculative add in deeper leagues.

Waiver Priority: Low.

FAAB – If you take a chance on James, you can probably pick him up off of the waiver wire for free.

Dez Bryant, WR, Free Agent

Long forgotten by Fantasy Football players, Bryant will work out for the Saints (along with Brandon Marshall). If he does join the Saints, temper your expectations. He will be behind Michael Thomas and Tre’Quan Smith on the team’s depth chart. At the same time, Bryant would also be part of a potentially explosive offense and he’d be working with a future Hall of Fame QB who likes to spread the ball around.

Waiver Priority: Low to medium. His name recognition may generate some interest in your league. You can make a small speculative bid. Don’t get sucked in to depleting your FAAB budget.

FAAB – 5 to 12 percent.

Logan Thomas, TE, Buffalo Bills, (0%)

With Charles Clay’s availability for Week 10 in question after he injured his hamstring this past week, Thomas may be able to build upon his Week Nine performance. He caught seven of the eight balls thrown his way for 40 yards in Week Nine. QB Nathan Peterman kept on peppering Thomas with targets this past week and if Clay’s hamstring doesn’t improve, Thomas might have some upside as a streaming TE this week.

Waiver Priority: Low, however there isn’t much depth at the TE position in Fantasy Football.

FAAB – up to 5 percent.
