Waiver Wire Week 10: 2022 Fantasy Football

With week 10 of the NFL season completed, we now look forward to week 11. In Week 11 we see the Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Jacksonville Jaguars all on a bye week. Quarterbacks Matt Ryan, Indianapolis Colts In the first game of the Jeff Saturday era, we saw a last-second (or planned) switch to Matt Ryan. Ryan completed 21 of 28 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown. He also added four carries for 38 yards and a touchdown. With Ryan back, a big boost goes for his pass catchers. Ryan is a really good add in Superflex formats.

Jimmy Garoppolo, San Fransisco 49ers Jimmy Garroppolo delivered for the 49ers in a huge way Sunday, beating the Los Angeles Chargers. He has Deebo Samuel back, as well as Elijah Mitchell. With Jimmy G operating with a full offense, he becomes a very intriguing fill-in option. Against the Chargers, he completed 19 of 28 passes for 240 yards. He added five rushes for three yards and a touchdown as well. Running Backs Rachaad White, Tampa Bay Buccaneers If you have the top waiver claim, Rachaad White is probably the player to throw it on. White got the start on Sunday for Tampa over Leonard Fournette, and Fournette left Sunday’s game with a hip injury. That is something worth monitoring. White rushed 22 times for 105 yards. Isiah Pacheco, Kansas City Chiefs Another top-tier waiver claim this week is Isiah Pacheco. With Clyde Edwards-Heliare not recording a touch, it’s clear Pacheco is now their number-one running back. Pacheco rushed 16 times for 82 yards. His stat line has been inconsistent, but Sunday has the possibility of starting a potential breakout.

Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens Odds are Gus Edwards likely could have been dropped in your league with his injury and the Baltimore bye week. There is a good chance he plays this week coming up, and will likely act as the top running back in Baltimore while JK Dobbins is still injured. Add Edwards if he is sitting on your waiver wire. Cam Akers, Los Angles Rams Cam Akers played Sunday, and while the stat line isn’t flashy, with six carries for 22 yards, it shows he’s being worked back into the offense. Darrell Henderson Jr only rushed six times for 21 yards, indicating this could be back to a true committee. Wide Receivers

Christian Watson, Green Bay Packers A name I almost put on here last week as a dart throw is now on here as one of the top waiver adds for the week. The rookie wideout showed he may be their new WR1 with Romeo Doubs injured. Watson caught four of eight targets for 107 yards and three touchdowns helping the Packers defeat the Dallas Cowboys. While he has been inconsistent all season, this is the makings of a breakout. Kadarius Toney, Kansas City Chiefs There is no reason Kadarius Toney should leave on the waivers after this week. He caught four of five targets for 57 yards and a touchdown. He added two rushes for 33 yards. Toney’s involvement in the offense is very promising for his rest of the season outlook. Toney looks like a good flex play this upcoming week against the Chargers. Donovan Peoples-Jones, Cleveland Browns Donovan Peoples-Jones is quietly one of the most consistent fantasy players this season. He caught five of nine targets for 99 yards on Sunday. In a full PPR format, Peoples-Jones has put up double-digit fantasy points in five of his last six games. He is becoming a solid flex play every week.

Treylon Burks, Tennesee Titans The rookie Treylon Burks made his return this week. He only caught three of six targets for 24 yards, but the first-round rookie has a very high ceiling and could put himself in the WR1 conversation for the Titans over the remainder of the season. Tight Ends Cole Kmet, Chicago Bears With the breakout of Justin Fields, Cole Kmet has been breaking out himself. On Sunday, Kmet caught four of seven passes for 74 yards and two touchdowns. It was his second consecutive week with two receiving touchdowns, and five touchdowns in his last three games.

Trey McBride, Arizona Cardinals With Zach Ertz out for the season, Trey McBride now becomes the top tight end for Arizona. He caught his only target for seven yards, but the rookie came into the draft process with a high pedigree, and now has the chance to showcase why he was a second-round pick this season. Juwan Johnson, New Orleans Saints, Juwan Johnson is having a handful of big games this season. On Sunday, he caught five of seven passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. Johnson has scored in back-to-back weeks and is up to four touchdowns on the season. Johnson is worth an add if you need the tight end fill-in for the week, or two tight end lineups.
