Week 10 was pretty eventful week for fantasy. There were quite a few guys who had numbers that jumped off the screen. You need to make sure to try and land some of these guys to keep your fantasy team alive during bye week woes.

NFL Week 10 waiver wire pickups

Kenyan Drake, RB, Cardinals: I don’t think anyone would’ve expected Drake to have over 100 yards rushing and a touchdown on Thursday Night Football against the 49ers who allowed the sixth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs coming into the week, according to Fantasy Pros. What even made it less likely was he did it after being traded for by the Cardinals that week. David Johnson is expected to suit up, which hurts Drake’s value, but it is hard to imagine that Drake won’t still get quite a few snaps and touches after his debut performance.

Devin Singletary, RB, Bills: Singletary is currently owned in 72 percent of Yahoo leagues, but that number needs to be as close to 100 percent after this week/ He had 23 total touches for 140 yards and a touchdown. He looked like the clearly better running back over Frank Gore, and healthy after missing time with a hamstring issue.

Noah Fant, TE, Broncos: Fant will have a bye next week, but he has had a few nice games after the departure of Emmanuel Sanders has opened up some more targets for him. He had his best game of the season in part because of his 75-yard touchdown catch and run, but last week he also caught five passes. He should be Brandon Allen’s safety blanket for the rest of the season, so Fant has some sneaky value in PPR leagues.

Zach Pascal, WR, Colts: With T.Y. Hilton out and Jacoby Brissett leaving the game, Pascal was the passing game’s focus for the Colts. He had five catches for 76 yards and a touchdown on the day. Next week he will be facing the Dolphins, which is as good of a time as any to play Pascal, who has been fairly up and down all year.

Preston Williams, WR, Dolphins: When a guy catches two touchdowns he has to be on this list. He and Ryan Fitzpatrick had a connection that was important to the Dolphins getting their first win. He has had at least five targets every week, and has been a solid PPR option most of the season. He is worth taking a flyer on, especially if he can continue to develop his chemistry with Fitzpatrick. Remember bad teams can have good players too.
