Post Week Ten Waiver Wire Pickups

Post Week Ten Waiver Wire Pickups


Nick Foles
Foles followed up his great performance last week with three more touchdowns Sunday. Another potential waiver wire pickup in Riley Cooper was a big factor with two of the three touchdowns. Chip Kelly hasn’t announced Foles the permanent starter but it seems to be all but a lock that he will do. Foles can step right in and be your number one fantasy quarterback for the stretch run.

Mark Ingram
Wow an actual Mark Ingram sighting. It was starting to look like Nick Saban’s program was producing dud running backs in the NFL. The jury is still out as Ingram had his first effective game in a long time. It’s a good enough game to warrant Ingram as a strong waiver wire pickup this week to add depth at running back to your team.

Andre Brown
New York’s Andre Brown returned to action and gained over 100 yards on an even more promising thirty carries. Tom Coughlin is going to pound the football and try to save Eli the headaches of mistakes he has been prone to.

Golden Tate
After one or two games with an amazing catch an athlete catches your eye. At this point Tate has solidified himself as a fantasy football need. Even though Percy Harvin is set to return you have to envision the Seahawks limiting his snaps to preserve him for the playoffs. Tate is becoming the consistent big play threat for the Seahawks as the offense continues to take steps from the regression we saw a few weeks ago.

Tavon Austin
When Austin touched the ball Sunday he turned it into a big play score. He had two catches Sunday and both were long touchdowns and also had a fabulous punt return. He is the Colts TY Hilton but has not find his niche amidst with Bradford or Clemens. Maybe now the Rams can figure out a way to involve him in the offense on a weekly basis. He has too much speed and talent to be limited in this offense.

Griff Whalen
Andrew Luck’s home game comeback heroics finally conceded to a poor performance from Luck and the Colts overall. In order to find balance offensively the Colts must try to run the football with Trent Richardson and Donald Brown. Once they do so the passing game will open up again. Griff Whalen has an opportunity to be a difference maker as the team looks for receivers to snare balls in absence of Reggie Wayne.

Michael Crabtree
Crabtree is expected to be able to return at some point, more than likely late November to the field. He is the missing piece offensively to an offense that is void of a playmaker receiver. Anquan Boldin a solid possession receiver but he is not a playmaker at this point in his career. Vernon Davis has been filling that area and left Sunday’s game early with an injury. San Francisco must have someone step up soon or Colin Kapernick’s confidence may be shaken at an inappropriate time.

John Carlson
Christian Ponder isn’t one to elevate his wide receivers in terms of fantasy football, but at tight end he has with Kyle Rudolph. With Rudolph out for about a month, John Carlson is the guy up next to reach dividends with the Vikings. He had a solid game Thursday against a poor Redskins secondary.
