Dynasty League Football


Week Ten Waiver Wire Advice

We’ll be covering some of the hot names on the majority of dynasty league waiver wires each week for our premium content members.  These players will likely be owned in a great minority of dynasty leagues.  We won’t waste your time with bigger names who are likely owned in your league like Alfred Morris, or the likely one week wonders like Dante Rosario because you guys are just too good for that.  We’re simply going to cover some players who could be targets this week if you have an open roster spot and are willing to throw a dart and hope to get lucky.

Just remember one very important thing – you’re in a dynasty league, not a re-draft league. Don’t get too enamored by the one hit wonders and drop your young projects in a quest to find lightning in a bottle. Savvy dynasty league owners will tell you the best players on the wire each and every year end up being the ones dropped by impatient owners, not the ones who suddenly break out. We won’t repeat any names here, so check out the names we’ve already mentioned at the bottom of this list.

One caveat again this week.  This is quite honestly the single worst season I can remember on the waiver wire. When you look at the laundry list of names, it’s not exactly an all-pro cast. There have been a few worthy picks, but not many. It’s getting skinnier by the week, so remember to check out the long laundry list of prior suggestions at the bottom.

With that being said, here are this week’s picks in order of priority:

Joe Webb, QB MIN

Christian Ponder hasn’t played well lately and the Vikings are starting to slide. If Ponder doesn’t shake out of his funk here soon, it may be time we see Webb again. Each time we have, he’s played very well.

Lance Dunbar, RB DAL

Gaining 26 yards on eight carries doesn’t make headlines in the dynasty world, but playing ahead of Philip Tanner and splitting carries with Felix Jones with DeMarco Murray out sure does. Murray is expected back soon, but Dunbar has obviously shown some promise on the practice field. He’s a deep roster stash at best, but you could do worse if you have a spot to burn.

Marcel Reece, Taiwan Jones, RBs OAK

With Darren McFadden on the shelf (again) and Mike Goodson dealing with a high ankle sprain of his own, someone will need to step up for the Raiders. We like Reece in PPR leagues, but Jones is certainly the wild card in this situation. Oakland is a pass first team (usually by necessity), but the loss of McFadden (again) will open up some chances.

Travaris Cadet, RB NO

We mentioned Cadet on our Sunday Morning Huddle piece this week, so hopefully you jumped on the bandwagon already. If not, maybe you can get him this week. He didn’t play particularly well on Monday, but he could get an extended look if Darren Sproles missing a few more weeks.

Emmanuel Sanders, WR PIT

Antonio Brown’s status is up in the air at the moment with a mid-ankle sprain (some are saying it’s high and some are claiming it’s low, so we’re going with mid).  Sanders has been lost in the shuffle, but could be PPR gold if Brown misses much time. He’s likely gone in your league, but we added him just because of how many questions we’ve been getting lately about if owners should add him.  Of course you should…

Who would you rather have as your RB6?

Bilal Powell
Joique Bell (FA after this year)
Mercel Reece
Chris Ivory (RFA after this year)
Traveris Cadet

Lance Couture

My exact thinking on Dunbar. Picked him up wherever I could.

Watching the game, I thought it was very interesting he was playing ahead of Tanner. Maybe its b/c they were throwing more? I could easily see Tanner getting the ball a lot in a clock-killing situation.
