With Week 10 coming up, it’s imperative that fantasy owners on the cusp of reaching the postseason—and even those that are already guaranteed a spot—start making last-minute adjustments to their rosters.

Let’s take a look at some players that you can put in a waiver claim for or pick up in free agency to either bolster the bench or even start as a bye-week replacement.


Ryan Tannehill

The Miami Dolphins rookie QB hasn’t won many games on the field, but there is a chance he can help you win against your fantasy opponent.

He has a highly favorable matchup against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10 and hasn’t performed that badly as of late—going 22-of-38 for 290 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions against the Colts in Week 9.

Considering the Titans' secondary gave up 229 yards and three touchdowns to Jay Cutler on just 26 passing attempts (19 completions), it’s not unreasonable to expect Tannehill to put up a bunch of yards and two TDs in a game that should be closer than the 51-20 blowout that was the Bears vs. Titans last Sunday. 


TY Hilton

The Colts wide receiver has been making a case to become an excellent third WR or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

In Week 9, he hauled in six receptions on 11 targets for 102 yards and a score. He’s been one of the most targeted WRs in the Colts offense and figures to get plenty of looks against the poor Jacksonville Jaguars secondary on Sunday.

Another bonus to Hilton is that his QB, Andrew Luck, is starting to blossom into an elite NFL signal-caller. Definitely put a claim on this first-year receiver out of Florida International.


Brandon Myers

Oakland’s TE had never scored in his four-year career until last week, when he hauled in two touchdown passes in a losing effort against Tampa Bay.

Now that he’s finally found the end zone, we believe that Myers is going to be a frequent visitor. The former Iowa star has a big body and is a reliable option in the receiving game, so he should continue to get looks from QB Carson Palmer.

Pick up Myers if you need a fill-in at the TE position in Week 10.
