Fantasy football matchups heating up for week 10, and owners can use any edge they can get. Is there someone on the waiver wire that can help you make a playoff push?
SB Nation partner, playthisguy.com, gives us their latest chart for waiver wire claims. They survey fantasy football gurus around the Internet for their top picks, then create a composite ranking. They compile 22 sources overall, but only 7 have updated for analysis thus far this week. There are no NFL teams on bye weeks in Week 10.
With Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin recently re-injuring his hamstring, the next man up on the high-octane Cowboy offense is Laurent Robinson. It would be wise to scoop him up soon, as teams will likely focus their defensive efforts on Dez Bryant and Jason Witten in the passing game.
Third on the list is Carson Palmer, who has been turnover prone in early action with the Raiders, but expect him to get better over time as he adjusts to his new surroundings. If you have QB problems, Palmer is still one of the better options available on the wire. If you need a companion move at WR and won't get Laurent Robinson, Raiders WR Jacoby Ford comes in at sixth on the list.
As for options on the Chicago Bears, look to RB Marion Barber, who has been getting goal line carries recently, and WR Earl Bennett. If you have been looking for a Bears WR to break away from the pack, Bennett is that man. With five receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, it is clear that he has the best rapport with QB Jay Cutler.
