Fantasy Football Week 10 Waiver-Wire Pickups: Tamme Time!!
Some players you pick up can turn around your season in a heart beat. They can win you your week by themselves.
Players like Mike Williams (TB), Ryan Torain and Michael Vick are examples of these type of players. There are several players out there that could be the difference between making the playoffs and missing out.
Here is a list of players that fit the bill and need to be added immediately.
1. Jacob Tamme (TE, IND)
There is not a bigger difference maker out there than Tamme. Tamme has taken over for the injured Dallas Clark and has received the same amount of targets from Peyton Manning.
In two starts this year, Tamme has 17 catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns. Clearly he has become a monster at the tight end position and needs to be scooped up right now—even if you have Antonio Gates.
2. Sidney Rice (WR, MIN)
Have you forgotten about this pro-bowl wide receiver? Rice has been injured since the start of the year, but he is close to a return and needs to be added everywhere.
He has too much talent not to produce during the fantasy playoffs. The Vikings need Rice more than ever and so do you.
Even if you are set at the wide receiver position, Rice is a nice guy to stash on your bench. Favre will force feed the ball to him when he returns.
3. Donald Driver (WR, GB)
Donald Driver has had a tough start to the season, but still has time to turn it around. He has actually been dropped in one league I am in and if he is available it's time to stash him on your bench until he returns to full health.
He is way too talented not to rebound and will get back to form after the Week 10 bye.
4. Vincent Jackson (WR, SD)
Vincent Jackson is another guy who is probably available that shouldn't be. Jackson has reported to the Chargers and will be back starting with the team by December or earlier.
Jackson is a guy worth stashing and cutting your worst player for. He has a pro bowl quarterback throwing him the ball and will once again be Philip Rivers' favorite target not named Antonio Gates.
Jackson could be huge during the fantasy playoffs so get him while you still can.
5. James Jones (WR, GB)
Nothing like a Week 9 explosion against the Cowboys to boost your stock. Jones filled in for Driver and exploded for eight catches, 128 yards and a touchdown. Jones took the opportunity and ran away with it.
If Donald Driver isn't healthy enough to start Week 11 against the Vikings, Jones needs to be added immediately. Even if Driver plays, he may not be fully healthy so Jones is worth a roster stash for now.
6. Javarris James (RB, IND)
With Joseph Addai and Mike Hart banged up, Donald Brown and James are expected to carry the load. If Addai and Hart are out again, James will at least get the goal-line carries.
He had only 12 yards last week, but scored two touchdowns. If you need a bye-week fill-in, James could be your guy if Brown is already taken.
7. David Garrard (QB, JAX)
David Garrard might be the hottest fantasy quarterback out there, after his 260 yard four touchdown effort against the hapless Cowboys defense.
He faces another weak secondary this week as he takes on the Houston Texans brutal secondary. Garrard should approach those numbers once again.
8. Mike Sims-Walker (WR, JAX)
Sims-Walker is another hot free-agent wide-receiver to target this week. He is fresh off of an eight catch 153 yard performance with a touchdown.
He now has a touchdown in back-to-back games.
He and Garrard should hook up several times this week against the Texans. Scoop him up if he's out there.
9. Lee Evans (WR, BUF)
Evans is a solid option this week against the awful Lions secondary that just gave up 300 plus yards to Mark Sanchez. The Bills are a passing offense now and Fitzpatrick will be airing it out once again.
He has 373 yards and four touchdowns on the season.
Pick up Evans is you need a bye-week fill-in or a solid bench player.
10. Malcom Floyd (WR, SD)
Floyd has been lost in the spotlight the past few weeks with a hamstring injury, but looks to be completely healthy after the Week 10 bye.
Floyd is having a solid season with 513 yards and three touchdowns. He will return to the starting lineup next week and needs to be stashed if he was dropped.
