All your best waiver wire advice is right here for you. Read the entire article or you’ll end up confused like Eli Manning post-turnover.
Alex Smith – WAS
Smith has been a disappointment thus far in 2018, but things are looking up in Week 10. The Redskins will be going to Tampa Bay to play the worst defense in the NFL. It’s a joke how bad they are. Tampa Bay gives up the most fantasy points to the QB position. There has only been one quarterback that has yet to score 20 plus fantasy points against the Buccaneers this season. Nick Foles you suck. Smith is actually coming off his best yardage total of the season throwing for 306 yards on a tied for season-high 46 passing attempts. The way that injuries have plagued the Redskins especially at the offensive line position will make it very difficult for the Redskins to run the ball effectively. It’s no coincidence that after the injuries were sustained in Atlanta, that Smith throws for a season-high in passing yards. If Mitchell Trubisky could throw six touchdowns against this defense then Alex Smith can throw at least three.
Marcus Mariota – TEN
I had a feeling that the Tennessee offense who look much better coming out after their bye week here in Week 9 against the Cowboys #Hottake. Mariota ended up finishing as the QB7 overall on the week and had his second-best fantasy performance of the season. The Titans finally got away from using the slow as f*ck Derrick Henry and fed Dion Lewis to a total of 19 carries to help move the offense against a stout Dallas defense. Mariota completed 21 of 29 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed 10 times for 32 yards and another score but lost two fumbles.
With the Titans welcoming the Patriots in Week 10, I like the matchup for Mariota a ton. New England gives up the 8th most fantasy points to the QB position. The Patriots defense is much more inferior on the road then there are at home. While on the road this season the Patriots have allowed every quarterback not named Derek Anderson to at least 250 passing yards and two passing touchdowns. The Patriots also rank third to last in rushing yards allowed to the quarterback position, creating a nice baseline for a one Marcus Mariota. People are going to be off Mariota because he has sucked so bad these year, but now it’s time to impress your friends. Maybe even win some cash with him in DFS. If you need to stream a QB with running upside don’t you dare stream Blake Bortles.
Duke Johnson Jr. – CLE
-Drop A Duke On The Defense
Duke Johnson Jr, finally had his breakout game in 2018, that we have been waiting for. Thank god Hue finally got the axe. Guy had nine receptions on nine targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns. Crushed it in the weekly recap article. Played a season-high in offensive snaps. In any full point or half point per reception leagues, you need to add the Duke. The Falcons are visiting the Browns next week and they can’t stop pass-catching backs. They just can’t. Just like you can’t stop fat kids from eating Halloween candy. Just not possible. No team has allowed more receptions, targets, or red zone targets to the RB position. The new coaches in Cleveland said they wanted to get Duke Johnson more involved and they did just that. Get ready to drop some of Duke Johnson in your fantasy lineups.
Mike Davis – SEA
Volume is what you are going to chase with Davis. With Chris Carson sidelined Davis rushed 15 times for 62 yards in Sunday’s 25-17 loss to the Chargers. He also caught seven of eight targets for 45 yards. The Seahawks trust Davis more than Rashaad Penny so Davis is an easy plugin play at the running back position if Carson misses time. It’s very encouraging that Davis was heavily involved in the passing game as they could be approaching a shootout against the Rams in Week 10. So if the Seahawks are getting killed you still got Davis. And if somehow they get a lead on the Rams (after hell freezes over) then you got him running up the gut for some YUGE chunks. Like Duke sized chunks.
– Great Receivers Start With Great Acronyms
OBJ? More like MVS LETS GET IT! The new number two wide receiver on the Green Bay Packers, MVS has looked great in his time on the field with Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Packers’ offense. He was second in the team in routes run and tied rGrandpa Cobb for second on the team with six total targets. The biggest difference though are Valdes Scantlings’ targets are down the field (dope) while Cobb’s are short quick passes near the line of scrimmage (lame). MVS has now put up at least 12 fantasy points in four straight games and looks locked in as the Green Bay number two receiver moving forward. The Packers have Miami in Week 10. Yes please, I would like to serve my Crow with a side of MVS.
