2010 Fantasy Football: Chad Pennington, Shaun Hill, Other Week 10 Waiver Picks
The fantasy football playoffs are just around the corner.
That means now, more than ever, each weekly roster move one makes could significantly impact their respective playoff tree.
And whether they actually get in at all.
This week, I’d like to take a look at some players that are nice waiver-wire picks for Week 10. Picks that could have a positive impact on your team, even if it is only for one week.
QB: Shaun Hill—Lions

Shaun Hill is once again back at the helm after Mathew Stafford separated his shoulder.
He, too, makes a fine grab off the waiver wire if you are in need of a QB.
The Lions are playing for pride the rest of the season, and they never really got away from their gameplan when Hill came in.
Hill does have decent distance, and could throw even more than usual now that Best is not in the mix for the interim. With Megatron as your primary target, you have to admit that Hill is a nice consideration if you are in need.
RB: Mike Goodson—Panthers

Goodson will continue to be the primary back in Carolina until at least Week 11.
But that is only IF Williams makes it back.
Goodson, however, is not for everyone.
If you play in a league that also rewards you points for a player who returns kicks, then Goodson could be a nice grab for week of two if you are in need of a flex player or a RB.
But he holds little water in other formats that do not reward points for kicks.
WR: Seyi Ajirotutu—Chargers

After a thrashing of the Houston Texans, Ajirotutu seems to be all the rage in a system that is as pass-happy as it gets.
There is a rumor floating around that Malcom Floyd could return to practice this week, but I would still hang on to Ajirotutu just to be safe. There are a couple of decent matchups coming up that could favor him.
If you don’t want to keep him, try your hand at trading him.
Ya never know.
RB/KR: LaRod Stephens-Howling—Cardinals

Stephens-Howling is another back that is an interesting grab if you are awarded points for KO returns, and are in need of a fill-in player.
Stephens-Howling has six straight games of over 100 yards in KO returns with two scores. While he won’t do all that much as a running back, he’ll still garner some points.
Trust me, I got whacked by this guy last week.
QB: Chad Pennington—Dolphins

Looking for a QB? How about a nice backup, just in case?
Well, guess who just became available. And guess who was just made the new starting QB in Miami?
Pennington has never really been a guy with a lot of fantasy endorsement. But remember that this is a quarterback who has a career completion percentage of 66.1, and has three seasons of over 3,000+ yards to his credit.
When was the last time that Pennington had a receiver quite like Brandon Marshall at his disposal?
So Pennington suddenly has a ton of intrigue surrounding him, and makes a fine waiver-wire grab.
