Having a good fantasy draft sets a team up really well, but most of the time to win a fantasy football league, acquisitions need to be made during the season. Each week there are several players worth exploring on the waiver wire. Here are fantasy football players to add week 10. (Note: These are best used for standard scoring leagues. All players are owned in less than 50 percent of ESPN leagues)
1. Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears
Fields has played well over the last few weeks of the season. He has scored over 20 points in standard-scoring leagues in three straight weeks, which includes games against the Patriots, Cowboys and Dolphins. In week 9 against the Bears, Fields set the record for most rushing yards in a game by a quarterback and also scored 42.72 points.
The Bears have finally fit the offense to the strength of Fields, which is the ability to get out of the pocket and make plays off platform. He is currently ranked seventh for fantasy football quarterbacks and should be added and maybe started if his good play continues. Fields is rostered in 47.4 percent of ESPN leagues.
2. Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, Miami Dolphins
Many fantasy managers dropped Wilson after the 49ers traded for Christian McCaffrey. Then Wilson got traded to the Dolphins where he reunited with Mike McDaniel, his former offensive coordinator. In his first game action, he registered the same amount of carries as Raheem Mostert, the starter. He finished with 51 rushing yards, 21 receiving yards and one touchdown catch in week 9.
The fact that Wilson is already sharing the load with Mostert is a good sign. He knows the McDaniel offense and could get the hot hand down the stretch. For the time being, he is worth rostering, but may be worth playing later in the season. He is currently rostered in 44.6 percent of ESPN leagues.
3. Gus Edwards, RB, Baltimore Ravens
Although Edwards probably won’t be active for Monday Night Football, he should be able to come back from injury very soon. When he does, he is the projected starter because J.K. Dobbins is on IR. He is averaging 12.6 points per game in standard scoring leagues, which covers two games, one of which he left early with an injury.
Moving forward, Edwards should get the majority of the work out of the Ravens’ backfield. It looked like he wasn’t too far off from returning to the lineup and could be active as early as week 11 when the Ravens play the Panthers. He is currently available in 37.5 percent of ESPN leagues.
4. Michael Gallup, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Gallup returned for five games from his ACL tear last year and is averaging 3.9 points per game in standard-scoring leagues. The Cowboys were on a bye week in week 9, which gives him more time to reacclimate to the lineup and with quarterback Dak Prescott.
Moving forward, Gallup is the number two receiver in the Cowboys’ offense. As he and Prescott get more time on the field this season, his production should increase. Adding him now, before he is ultra-productive could be a smart move. He is rostered in 41 percent of ESPN leagues.
5. Odell Beckahm Jr., WR, Free Agent
Beckham Jr. is still recovering from his ACL tear in the Super Bowl, but according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, should be fully cleared this week. He will be talking to plenty of the contenders, which has included the Cowboys and the Bills.
For whatever team he decides to sign with, Beckham Jr. can be productive. Once he signs with a team, plenty of fantasy managers will be adding him. Since he is going to be healthy this week, add him now before the rush. He is rostered in 19.8 percent of ESPN leagues.
