With the NFL season past the midway point, it’s time for a look at the waiver wire moves you need to make heading into Week 10.
Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris
The Cowboys’ backfield remains one of the biggest weekly question marks in fantasy football. While Ezekiel Elliott is the workhorse back, his looming suspension has left the Cowboys trying to figure out who the next man up will be if Elliott does serve his six-game suspension this season.
For now, it looks like Alfred Morris will be the man, while Rod Smith and Darren McFadden also get touches. Morris has been the No. 2 running back all season, and he’s expected to be the starter once Elliott begins serving his suspension.
That makes Morris a must-add this week in all of your leagues, as he has the potential to put up big numbers behind this Dallas offensive line.
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee
The Jaguars’ passing game is finally coming alive thanks to Marqise Lee. After getting off to a slow start this season, Lee has now had 70-plus receiving yards in three-straight games. That includes seven grabs for 75 yards and a score against the Bengals in Week 9. Lee is a great addition if you’re in need of wide receiver help.
Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett
Now that Andrew Luck is officially on IR, this is Jacoby Brissett’s offense, and he’s starting to thrive in it. He’s now thrown for four touchdowns and 541 yards over his last two games, including a 303-yard performance in a Week 9 win over the Texans. He’s not flashy, but Brissett is someone who you can start if your regular starter is on a bye or facing a bad matchup.
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard
When the Giants lost Brandon Marshall, Odell Beckham Jr. and Dwayne Harris, Sterling Shepard looked primed to become the featured weapon in New York. However, an ankle injury delayed that for several weeks, but now that Shepherd is up to speed, he’s making a big impact. Against the Rams, Shepard caught five passes on nine targets for 70 yards. Expect him to put up those kinds of numbers on a consistent basis going forward.
Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls
The Seahawks may finally be shifting toward Thomas Rawls as the featured running back. After Eddie Lacy was forced from Sunday’s game due to a groin injury, Rawls ran for 39 yards on nine runs while catching two passes for 31 yards. It’s not great, but it’s the best game a Seahawks running back has had in awhile. He’s worth taking a flyer on if you need running back help.
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton
Once Bill Lazor was running the show, Andy Dalton became a viable fantasy option at quarterback. That is, until the ghost of Ken Zampese has reemerged in recent weeks, as Dalton has thrown for under 141 yards in two of his last three games. He also has just five scores over his last four games. Get rid of him ASAP.
New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins
The Jets offense is on fire, but it’s come without Austin Seferian-Jenkins making much of an impact. ASJ has just 69 receiving yards over his last three games, while Jermaine Kearse and Robby Anderson are becoming more featured weapons in this offense. Drop ASJ from your fantasy team.
Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson
Ed Dickson is officially a goner in Carolina. With Greg Olsen set to come off IR soon, Dickson has become a ghost in recent weeks, including a no-catch game on Sunday in a win over the Falcons. He’s waiver wire fodder now.
