Top Waiver Wire Options

Tank Dell

Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals QB

Forty-one percent of current Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB)

Kyler Murray remains eligible to return in Week 10 and was removed from the Week 9 injury report after Wednesday’s “full participant” designation. Jalen Hurts, Patrick Mahomes and Tua Tagovailoa are on bye.

Jaxon Smith-Njiba, Seattle Seahawks WR

Thirty-six percent of current FAAB

Rookie WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba’s 2.10 yards per route run (YPRR), six receptions and 63 receiving yards led all Seattle Seahawks Week 9 pass catchers despite facing the Baltimore Ravens’ elite slot coverage unit. He is WR3-viable against the Washington Commanders’ near-league-worst slot coverage unit in Week 10 and is available in at least 42 percent of ESPN and Yahoo leagues. 

Tank Dell, Houston Texans WR

Sixteen percent of current FAAB

Rookie WR Tank Dell is coming off his second 100-plus receiving yard game and is averaging 2.27 YPRR on the year.

Taysom Hill, New Orleans Saints TE

Nine percent of current FAAB

Taysom Hill assumed a featured offensive role in Week 6. His 18.04 PPR per game in Weeks 6-9 rank second at the position and his 11 green zone touches tie for first among all NFL players. He is a matchup-proof TE1. 

Jake Ferguson, Dallas Cowboys TE

Nine percent of current FAAB

Jake Ferguson’s 18.40 PPR points per game since the Dallas Cowboys’ Week 7 bye rank fourth among NFL tight ends. He is available in 41.5 percent of ESPN leagues and 33 percent of Yahoo leagues. In Week 10, Dallas faces the New York Giants, who rank in the bottom eight in both adjusted yards per tight end route run (0.78) and yards per tight end reception (12.1). 

Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears RB

Eight percent of current FAAB

Khalil Herbert is eligible to return from injured reserve in Week 10, five weeks after his Week 5 high-ankle sprain. Running backs average 3.5 games missed due to the injury, per doctor of physical therapy Adam Hutchison’s Injury Report, although running backs typically do not fully recover until the offseason.

Zay Jones, Jacksonville Jaguars WR

Five percent of current FAAB

Downfield threat Zay Jones (knee) has a chance to return following the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Week 9 bye.

Stash These Players Now

Keaton Mitchell

Leonard Fournette, Buffalo Bills RB

Six percent of current FAAB

The newly signed Leonard Fournette remains a high-end bench stash.

Elijah Mitchell, San Francisco 49ers RB

Six percent of current FAAB

No. 2 back Elijah Mitchell (knee) should be fully healthy following the San Francisco 49ers’ Week 9 bye.

Keaton Mitchell, Baltimore Ravens RB

Five percent of FAAB

As detailed in “Takeaways From Every Week 9 Game,” rookie RB Keaton Mitchell totaled 138 rushing yards and one touchdown on nine rushing attempts, adding one reception for minus-4 yards against the Seahawks.

Kenneth Gainwell, Philadelphia Eagles RB

Four percent of current FAAB

Kenneth Gainwell is an inefficient dual-threat player in a limited role but has coach Nick Sirianni’s trust. Gainwell’s 1.33 green zone touches per game tie for 16th among NFL running backs.  

Jaleel McLaughlin, Denver Broncos RB

Two percent of current FAAB

The Denver Broncos’ Week 9 bye gives coach Sean Payton an opportunity to replace veteran RB Samaje Perine with rookie RB Jaleel McLaughlin as the primary passing-down running back. 

Marvin Mims Jr., Denver Broncos WR

Two percent of current FAAB

Rookie WR Marvin Mims Jr. should likewise be stashed and monitored for post-bye-week increased usage.

Tank Bigsby, Jacksonville Jaguars RB

Two percent of current FAAB

Jacksonville No. 1 RB Travis Etienne suffered a Week 8 ankle injury; he was able to return to the game and play effectively, but No. 2 RB Tank Bigsby is worth stashing to see if swelling complicated things for Etienne.

Noah Brown, Houston Texans WR

Two percent of current FAAB

Noah Brown has proven to be a capable deep-league flex option in the right matchup.

Kyle Philips, Tennessee Titans WR

One percent of current FAAB

Slot WR Kyle Philips spent much of the season rehabilitating an MCL sprain. He’s played extremely efficiently since the Tennessee Titans’ Week 7 bye, producing a 22.2 percent targets per route run (TPRR) rate while averaging 2.56 YPRR. Philips profiles as a PPR, matchup-based flex option with QB Will Levis under center. 

Albert Okwuegbunam, Philadelphia Eagles TE

Zero percent of current FAAB

The Philadelphia Eagles’ No. 1 TE Dallas Goedert suffered a forearm fracture that will require surgery. No. 3 TE Albert Okwuegbunam is a highly athletic, if unproven, pass-catcher.

Streaming Options

Russell Wilson


Note: Hurts, Mahomes and Tagovailoa are on a bye, so quarterback FAAB bidding will likely be competitive. 

Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos (@ Buffalo Bills)

Twelve percent of current FAAB 

Russell Wilson faces the Buffalo Bills’ injury-depleted defense. The game’s 46.5-point FanDuel over/under is Week 10’s second highest. 

Baker Mayfield, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (vs. Tennessee Titans)

Eleven percent of current FAAB

In Week 10, Baker Mayfield faces the Titans, and their 68.9 percent completion-rate-allowed ranks seventh-highest in the NFL. 

Tight Ends

Trey McBride, Arizona Cardinals (vs. Atlanta Falcons)

Six percent of current FAAB

Murray (ACL reconstruction) has a chance to return in Week 10, and Trey McBride and the Arizona Cardinals face an Atlanta Falcons team whose tight end coverage unit ranks in the bottom four in both adjusted yards per tight end route run (0.88) and tight end receptions allowed per game (6.11). 

Chigoziem Okonkwo, Tennessee Titans (@ Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Three percent of current FAAB

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers allow 5.88 tight end receptions per game, the seventh-most in the NFL, and the Titans’ speedy TE Chigoziem Okonkwo possesses above-average run-after-catch talents.


Riley Patterson, Detroit Lions (@ Los Angeles Chargers)

Two percent of current FAAB

The game between the Detroit Lions and the Los Angeles Chargers opened as Week 10’s highest game total on FanDuel — a 48.5-point over/under. 


Seattle Seahawks (vs. Washington Commanders)

Four percent of current FAAB

Commanders QB Sam Howell’s 11.1 percent sack rate ranks third-highest among 40 NFL quarterbacks with at least 50 passing attempts.

Chicago Bears (vs. Carolina Panthers)

Zero percent of current FAAB

Carolina Panthers QB Bryce Young is one of the league’s premier targets when streaming NFL defense/special teams units. 

Looking Ahead to Week 11

Miami Dolphins’ Defense (vs. Las Vegas Raiders)

Zero percent of current FAAB

The Miami Dolphins got No. 1 CB Jalen Ramsey (MCL sprain) back in the lineup in Week 9. The team faces Las Vegas Raiders rookie QB Aidan O’Connell in Week 11.
