Top 7 Fantasy Sleepers for Week 10: Fantasy Value Options

If you are scouring the waiver wire searching for a fantasy sleeper to stuff into your lineup by Sunday, you’re in luck. This week is one of the best weeks to find quality sleepers due to the emergence of unknown players set to take over for injured starters and quality matchups. If some of these picks are not available in your league, you can still manage to finesse an easy trade for them due to their lack of notability. You can find all our NFL Waiver Wire pickups and adds in one place each week.

Devin Singletary

Devin Singletary is the premier sleeper in week ten. Singletary has scored a TD in his last two games, and had recorded 10+ fantasy points in four of the five games he’s played in this season. He probably stole the starting job from teammate Frank Gore. Devin averaged 5+ yards/carry while Gore barely had over one yard/carry in week nine. The Browns are allowing the fifth-most yards per game to opposing backfields, so look for Singletary to extend his hot streak this Sunday.

Golden Tate

Over the past four weeks, Tate has recorded 10+ fantasy points along with 6+ catches in every game. Tate is also one of the most consistent and reliable sleeper wide receivers given the fact that he has accumulated 80+ receiving yards in three of his last four contests. With Sterling Shepard out, Tate has led the Giants receiving corps in terms of targets in three of his previous four games. Tate is obviously Daniel Jones’ favorite WR and heads into week ten against a Jets defense that is surrendering the 6th most points to WRs.

DeVante Parker

Devante ParkerDespite playing for the awful Dolphins, DeVante Parker has scored 10+ points in each of his last five games. Furthermore, Parker has scored a TD in four of his previous five games and is now is the No. 1 WR in targets following the injury of Preston Williams. If you are already slated to make the playoffs, you absolutely need to get your hands on DeVante Parker. Three of Parker’s last four Fantasy eligible games come against teams who are top ten in allowing the most fantasy points to wideouts, so look for him to be a featured fantasy option.

Gus Edwards

Despite being Mark Ingram’s backup, Edwards is only averaging three fewer snaps than Ingram, according to Yahoo Fantasy Football. Edwards heads into week ten against a Bengals defense is allowing the most rushing yards per game in the league. Additionally, Cincy is allowing 54.4 receiving yards to RBs per game, so there is potential for the Gus Bus to be featured on both the ground and passing game. If you need a flex option, Edwards is a quality option.

Kenyan Drake

Kenyan Drake is another quality flex option in week ten against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. According to Pro Football Focus, Drake is averaging 4.6 yards per carry, with 3.31 of those yards coming after contact. Against the league’s most daunting defense, Drake recorded over 160+ yards in week nine and showed off his elusiveness and strength. Due to the return of David Johnson, Drake’s fantasy potential is limited, but he looks to be a low-end RB2/high-end flex against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Gerald Everett

gerald everettGerald Everett’s fantasy owners are understandably upset after the Rams tight-end only had 3.5 points in his week eight contest against the Bengals. Everett has had a shaky season year filled with volatile peaks and troughs. Nevertheless, Everett is a top ten tight end in regards to total targets and targets per game, which means the potential for a breakout game is still there every week. Everett is a player whose fantasy production is heavily dependent on the matchup. This is excellent news considering he’s going against Steelers team that is a top ten favorable matchup for TEs this season.

Ted Ginn, Jr.

If you are looking for a wideout to add in deeper leagues, you should add Ted Ginn Jr. According to Yahoo, Ginn is only owned by 6% of fantasy owners despite being the clear-cut no. 2 WR for the Saints. While teammate Michael Thomas has overwhelmingly devoured the bulk of Saints targets this year, Ginn has averaged more air yards than Michael Thomas when Brees is throwing to him (Yahoo). Moreover, the Atlanta Falcons defense has given up the second-most explosive pass plays in the league according to sharp football stats, which is good news for a deep-threat like Ginn.
