Top 10 waiver wire pickups for Week 10
Emmanuel Sanders (PIT): Sanders has yet to put together a good fantasy performance this season, but he'll have a shot at doing it this week with Antonio Brown doubtful for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. He's no sure thing to put up good numbers, but if you have players injured or on bye and need a fill-in, he's worth a shot as a risk/reward play.
Darrius Heyward-Bey (OAK): With their top two running backs injured, the Raiders are going to have to look to the pass more than they have through the first eight games. With defenses beginning to focus on shutting down Carson Palmer's favorite target, Denarius Moore, DHB will be an important part of the Raiders' attack. He's put up either 74+ yards or a touchdown in his past three games.
Brandon Myers (OAK): I've had Myers on this list a few times, and he finally showed owners what he can do when he gets in the end zone. He's caught 5+ passes in five of his eight games, but had failed to get in the end zone until this past Sunday. He finally showed his potential during the Raiders' comeback attempt against the Bucs, catching eight passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns. Carson Palmer loves using him as a safety net, and he may get more looks now that the Raiders' backfield is depleted. He's worth picking up as an injury/bye week fill-in or as a starter in deeper leagues.
Patriots: Owned in 70% of Yahoo leagues, this one may not be available to you, but it is definitely worth grabbing if no one has it. Ranked 11th in scoring defense and 3rd in takeaways, the Patriots have fielded a solid fantasy defense in most games this season. Their upcoming schedule consists of the Bills, Colts, Jets, and Dolphins, so you can pick them up and not have to worry about a new defense for a few weeks.
