A couple of familiar names highlight our early fantasy football Week 10 waiver wire after a wild Week 9 that saw some ridiculous individual fantasy performances. From our guy Tank Dell to one of our favorite stashes from a few weeks ago, there are a few potential stretch-run heroes that could boost your fantasy squad.
Note: Roster % based on Yahoo! and must be less than 50% rostered
TANK DELL, WR, HOUSTON TEXANS (47% ROSTERED)
Tank Dell has been a season-long staple on our weekly waiver wire article, and this will be the last week he’ll be under the 50% threshold. After faltering in his juicy Week 8 matchup, Dell balled out in Week 9, catching six of 11 targets for 114 yards and two touchdowns — highlighted by his game-winning touchdown reception with 10 seconds remaining.
Everyone ate in CJ Stroud’s record-setting afternoon, where he threw for an absurd 470 yards and five touchdowns in a shootout against the Bucs. Dell, who highlighted our Week 9 sleepers article, needs to be rostered everywhere, and it’s embarrassing he’s still available in 53% of leagues.
KEATON MITCHELL, RB, BALTIMORE RAVENS (3%)
Weeks ago, our girl Kayla was conducting the Keaton Mitchell train, introducing us to the rookie running back while he was on injured reserve. Mitchell finally got his chance to shine this week, and boy, did he respond with an exclamation point. The third-fastest running back in his class, behind only De’Von Achane and Jahmyr Gibbs, racked up 138 yards and a score on only nine carries against the Seahawks.
Mitchell showed off his speed on two monster runs, highlighted by a 40-yard touchdown and an impressive 60-yard rumble. With only Gus Edwards and Justice Hill in his way, Mitchell adds some much-needed lightning to this backfield alongside Lamar Jackson.
Mitchell is a must-add this week and should be rostered everywhere.
DEMARIO DOUGLAS, WR, NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (35%)
Another highlight of our Week 9 sleepers, Demario Douglas snatched five of seven targets for 55 yards in a juicy spot against the Commanders. Douglas tied for the team lead in targets and led the team in receiving yards. With Kendrick Bourne (IR) and DeVante Parker sidelined, Douglas started at the Z and looked the part right away.
Douglas gets the Colts next week and has seen 20 targets over his last three games, making him a prime streamer option moving forward.
CADE OTTON, TE, TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (5%)
Cade Otton has become one of Baker Mayfield’s top targets, recording 15 receptions on 21 targets over his last three games. In Week 9, Otton caught six of nine targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns. It’s an impressive target share, considering he’s battling the likes of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, but it’s clear Mayfield trusts the tight end, especially in the red zone.
For those who lost Darren Waller or are in the TE streamer business (who isn’t), Otton is a great choice and is still available in 95% of leagues.
WE’LL DISCUSS LATER: QB Derek Carr, QB Will Levis, RB Leonard Fournette, RB Ty Chandler, WR Noah Brown, WR Khalil Shakir, TE Jonnu Smith
