Week ten of the 2019 NFL season is in the books and you’ve made every mistake a man can make. You thought the Patriots defense was unbeatable… and you were wrong. You believed the Dolphins were incapable of winning …. And you were wrong. You thought fantasy football was fun….and boy, were you wrong. You and your team have utterly failed in week nine. Lucky for you, there are waiver wire options to save you from yourself. If I don’t mention someone whom you think I should be talking about, just know there are many reasons why I overlooked them. Maybe they are owned in most leagues, or maybe they are so bad I don’t even consider them. Maybe it’s because your opinions cannot be trusted. After all, you are here. So let us examine what our best week ten waiver wire players available in at least 50% of Yahoo! leagues are for your championship run…

Week Ten Waiver Wire QBs
Should I Pick up Jimmy Garropolo? – Owned in 50% of leagues – If you need quarterback help and Garropolo is available, snag him. I’m not as high on him as Derek Carr because Handsome Jimmy G doesn’t get to play the Cardinals every week, but if you need a viable high-floor starting quarterback this late in the season, this is about as good as it gets. (Upcoming schedule: SEA, ARI, GB, @BAL)
Should I Pick up Derek Carr? – Owned in 42% of leagues – Last week, I told you about how favorable the next four weeks of Derek Carr’s schedule are. This week, I’m going to tell you how over the last four weeks, he is averaging QB1 numbers. If you wait to hear why you need Derek Carr next week, he probably won’t be available to you. (Upcoming schedule: LAC, CIN, @NYJ, @KC)
Should I Pick up Sam Darnold? – Owned in 21% of leagues – Last week, I told you that Darnold was playing the Dolphins, so you should grab him. This week, I am apologizing and telling you to avoid him at all costs. He’s seeing ghosts, and you’re seeing the ghosts of QBs you could have rostered, instead. (Upcoming schedule: NYG, @WAS, OAK, @CIN)
Week Ten Waiver Wire RBs
Should I Pick up Ronald Jones? – Owned in 40% of leagues – It really is impressive how we begrudgingly keep going back to Ronald Jones. This will he/won’t he game is kind of annoying; I thought we got enough of this with Ross and Rachel. The good news is that Bruce Arians has declared that Ronald Jones has earned the right to be the starter. The bad news is he still plays on the Bucs. (Upcoming schedule: ARI, NO, @ATL, @JAX)
Should I Pick up Derrius Guice? – Owned in 33% of leagues – If you are desperate for running back help, then Derrius Guice has to be your number one waiver priority. Guice is finally back at practice in Washington. He is probably the best back left on the waiver wire with a chance of being a plug-and-play running back if when he usurps Adrian Peterson. That is until he gets hurt again. He’s still worth a flyer because if he doesn’t get hurt, he has RB1-upside. (copied word for word from last week, because it is all still true) (Upcoming schedule: Bye, NYJ, DET, @CAR).
Should I Pick up Ty Montgomery? – Owned in 3% of leagues – Le’Veon Bell having an MRI on his knee, means you should look at Ty Montgomery. Just know that the Jets are awful, Le’Veon Bell has been a disappointment and it is very unlikely that Montgomery is going to be what the Jets need to stop being the Jets. Having said all that, it’s week ten on the waiver wire and he’s a running back with a pulse, so someone will blow over 30% of their FAAB on him. (Upcoming schedule: NYG, @WAS, OAK, @CIN)
Week Ten Waiver Wire WRs
Should I Pick up DeVante Parker? – Owned in 29% of leagues – So it turns out that DeVante Parker actually is in the best shape of his life. At the moment, he’s definitely in the best fantasy shape of his life, with four touchdowns in his last five games. Imagine figuring out how to be a decent receiver right when your team goes in the toilet. (Upcoming schedule: @IND, BUF, @CLE, PHI)
Should I Pick up Zach Pascal? – Owned in 14% of leagues – Zach Pascal has had very solid games in two of the last three weeks, turning in 106 yards & two touchdowns on six catches in week seven, and 5 catch, 76 yard game with a touchdown this past week. This week, he will be playing a Miami Dolphins team that has surpassed expectations on the season by actually winning a game. Pascal is a very interesting waiver wire options, especially with T.Y. Hilton expected to miss time. (Upcoming schedule: MIA, JAX, @HOU, TEN)
Week Ten Waiver Wire TEs
Should I Pick up Jared Cook? – Owned in 49% of leagues – While a disappointment based on where he was drafted, (and we did warn you!), Jared Cook should be your number one waiver priority if you need help at tight end, assuming he looks like he will play in week ten. If he plays in week ten, he will be playing an Arizona Cardinals team that has given up the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. If there is one thing Sean Payton knows how to do, it is how to exploit the weaknesses of opposing defenses. (Upcoming schedule: ATL, @TB, CAR, @ATL)
Should I Pick up Noah Fant? – Owned in 10% of leagues – Just know that if you pick up Noah Fant on waiver wires, Jermaine Whitehead might kill you. He’s averaging six targets per game and showed his game-breaking skill with a 75-yard touchdown last week. You can probably get him once waivers clear since he doesn’t play this week (Upcoming schedule: Bye, @MIN, @BUF, LAC)
