With Fantasy Football Week 10 coming in, your roster should be pretty much set and the bulk of your players already through their bye weeks.  The only time you should be using your league’s wavier wire is if you have a serious injury for your kicker is going on a bye week.

This week players going on bye weeks are Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson, Eli Manning, Steve Smith, and Ahmad Bradshaw as the Texans and the Giants are in bye weeks. 

Check out Fantasy Football Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

Here are some options in for Fantasy Football Week 10 Waiver Wire pickups :

Tampa Bay QB Josh Freeman: I know is way too early to fall in love with this young QB but there are a lot of really bad QBs out there and if you need someone for this week Freeman might be the man.  He is facing the Dolphins who rank 28 against the pass in the NFL.

New Orleans WR Robert Meachem : There have been injuries to fantasy WRs like Anquan Boldin and Calvin Johnson that’s why Meachem becomes like a really good option now.  Before last week, Meachem had no more than two catches in any game this season, but you know Drew Brees will look for him especially with Lance Moore on the shelf. 

Green Bay WR James Jones:   He’s coming off scoring 16 fantasy points and many of the fantasy owners don’t even know he exists.  With a good matchup in the upcoming week he will be worth starting as your third WR or as a flex player.

Washington RB Ladell Betts : After Clinton Portis had his rung bell and suffered a concussion in Week Nine Bettis became the leader RB for the Skins.  Betts carried 15 times for 70 yards and scored a touchdown on a fourth-down play from the one last week.  He is worth a spot on your team.

Carolina DST:  The Panthers' run defense has improved, despite allowing a rushing touchdown in four straight games.  Do not consider the Panthers for this week as they host the Falcons and RB Michael Turner. Consider them for later in the season and in the playoffs.
