The fantasy football season is flying by as we head into week ten already. We are in the home stretch and you are hopefully playing for a playoff berth in your respective fantasy league. The bye weeks are drawing to a close but there are some injury issues with several key fantasy players, so you might need to hit the fantasy football waiver wire this week to fill a roster spot. The waiver wires are likely depleted in most leagues at this point in the season, but a few players might be available.
Isaac Redman, Pittsburgh Steelers- Given the chaos surrounding the Steelers running back situation this season, Redman might be available. He posted his best game of the season on Sunday and should see action again this week in a juicy matchup against the reeling Kansas City Chiefs.
Joique Bell, Detroit Lions- Bell is a player I’ve been high on for two seasons now and he’s finally getting some playing time. He is seeing an average of 10 touches per game and had over 100 total yards and a score last week.
Marcel Reese, Oakland Raiders- Reese should play a bigger role in the Raiders offense going forward with Darren McFadden suffering a high ankle sprain. Reese posted a 95 yard effort and scored a touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Taiwan Jones, Oakland Raiders- See above. McFadden’s injury along with Mark Goodson suffering an ankle injury could leave Jones as the Raiders starting running back this week.
Emmanuel Sanders, Pittsburgh Steelers- Antonio Brown proclaimed he had a high ankle sprain after the Steelers win over the New York Giants. That original self-diagnosis was incorrect but Brown might miss the upcoming game against the Chiefs. Sanders could put up strong numbers against a Chiefs team that is struggling mightily.
