Due to popular demand, we have brought back our weekly Dynasty Waiver Wire coverage!
We won’t be forcing waiver wire advice or suggestions. Instead, expect to see a wide-ranging number of players each week, based solely on increasing snaps, injury or any combination of events that suggest a player’s status could change in the future. You can expect we will be providing a bit of justification for the addition as well as just how deep the particular player is. It’s a format that we’ll likely be playing with over the coming weeks. We are only highlighting those players that we believe deserve some level of attention, not merely players who happen to see targets or log a carry. As is always the case in fantasy, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
No way to sugar coat this week, it’s week without much in the way of upside excitement. Without further delay, let’s get to your week ten waiver wire additions:
Josh Gordon, WR CLE
He’s likely rotting on a roster in your league currently but it’s worth checking your waiver wire just in case. Gordon isn’t available to see the field until week 13 and he’s no guarantee to make an appearance, but undoubtedly on his last strike in the NFL, he’s a player that needs to be rostered should lightning strike … or should I say “flash”? A player that has fought both alcohol and drug demons from his days in college, we should all behind any young player trying to make life choices to better himself. Still only 26 years old, there’s time for production should he turn the corner. For the good of the Browns and Josh Gordon, himself, let’s wish them both well.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB TB
Nothing more than a streaming quarterback play for those of you playing in 2QB leagues. If you aren’t playing in a 2QB format and are eyeing Fitzpatrick, don’t bother as your season is likely over anywat. Jameis Winston will be down for at least the next two weeks due to lingering shoulder issues leaving Fitzpatrick as the starter for the floundering Bucs. There was a time when Fitz would have been an intriguing option but he’s devolved into an emergency-only play. His presence under center brings a downgrade for all receivers as well. At least he’s a warm body and starting.
Kendrick Bourne, WR SF
In a “so you’re telling me there’s a chance” addition, the undrafted rookie out of Eastern Washington saw six targets in a tilt against Arizona Cardinals. Bourne managed only two receptions for 39 yards on those six targets but showed well enough to get further consideration next week. Bourne narrowly missed a big gainer but was modestly overthrown. For the third week in a row, Bourne eclipsed 20 snaps, this game seeing a season high 40. With good height at 6’1″ but lacking long speed (4.68 forty), the best thing going for Bourne is a 49’er roster lacking play-makers at the position, opening up opportunity for previously buried players. Kendrick is, at best, a long shot only for coaches with roster space to burn.
Bryce Treggs, WR CLE
I’ve been tracking Treggs for a couple of weeks now but have been hesitant to add the flavor-du-jour at receiver in Cleveland. The Browns have added 109 (exaggeration alert) receivers in recent drafts and have yet to uncover a single reliable target. Corey Coleman is on his way back from injury but it’s Treggs now logging noteworthy snaps, beginning in week five. Coming off a bye this week, he’s a deep-roster flyer for desperate coaches onlyfeafe
