Another mostly injury-free Sunday may be beneficial to your current lineups, but it may not be beneficial to future ones. With few injuries and breakouts, Jeff Wilson Jr., Terrace Marshall Jr., Noah Fant, Mecole Hardman, and Cole Kmet lead our early look at the top Week 10 fantasy waiver wire pickups and free agent adds. Yes, times are difficult.
Top 15 Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 10
- Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, Dolphins
- Greg Dulcich, TE, Broncos
- Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, Panthers
- Mecole Hardman, WR, Chiefs
- Kyren Williams, RB, Rams
- Latavius Murray, RB, Broncos
- Chuba Hubbard, RB, Panthers
- Cole Kmet, TE, Bears
- Isaiah Likely, TE, Ravens

- Treylon Burks, WR, Titans
- Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, 49ers
- Marcus Mariota, QB, Falcons
- Andy Dalton, QB, Saints
- Jacoby Brissett, QB, Browns
Let’s it go.
15.Jacoby Brissett, QB, Browns
The Dolphins allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks entering Week 9, and Brissett has averaged just over 267 passing yards in his last three games, so he could flirt with 300 yards and a couple of touchdowns in this game.
14.Andy Dalton, QB, Saints
Dalton will face a Steelers defense that has allowed a lot of passing yards and touchdowns this season in Week 10. As of Week 9, Pittsburgh was allowing the fifth-most FPPG to quarterbacks, so Dalton should have a high floor.
13.Marcus Mariota, QB, Falcons
Mariota just had 250 yards and three touchdowns against the Panthers in Week 8, so we know he can put up fantasy points again. Because of his rushing ability, his floor remains high.
12.Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, 49ers
Jimmy Garoppolo will be one of the most secure QB streaming options in Week 10. Los Angeles allows the 15th-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks entering Week 9, so Garoppolo should be able to succeed thanks to his arsenal of weapons.
11.Treylon Burks, WR, Titans
The rookie wideout has been out for a long time due to a toe injury that landed him on injured reserve earlier this season. He can return at any time, and if he does, he could have an immediate impact.
10.Isiah Pacheco, RB, Chiefs
Pacheco started for the second time in a row in Week 9, but he vanished in the second half, finishing with just five yards on five carries. Without an injury to Clyde Edwards-Helaire, he’s unlikely to be much more than a flex in favorable matchups, but he still has upside in Kansas City’s high-powered offense. This includes a good matchup against Jacksonville next week.
9.Isaiah Likely, TE, Ravens
Likely caught just one pass on Monday night, but it went for a 24-yard TD. It marked the second-straight game in which he scored, and it’s clear he’s going to be a big part of Baltimore’s offense when Mark Andrews (shoulder, knee) is out.
8.Cole Kmet, TE, Bears
Kmet has caught three touchdown passes in the last two weeks. In a favorable matchup against the Dolphins, he caught a season-high five passes (six targets) for 41 yards and two touchdowns.
7.Chuba Hubbard, RB, Panthers
Hubbard (ankle) has missed the last two games, but it’s worth noting that he started and saw the majority of Carolina’s early carries in Week 7. D’Onta Foreman has established himself as Carolina’s starting quarterback, but Hubbard will play when he returns.
6.Latavius Murray, RB, Broncos
Murray split carries with Melvin Gordon early but eventually served as the “closer” late, finishing with 46 yards and a touchdown on a team-high 14 carries the last time we saw Denver play.
5.Kyren Williams, RB, Rams
Williams is expected to play a “big role” in the Rams’ offense once he returns from an early-season ankle injury, which is expected to be in Week 10 after Williams was almost cleared ahead of Week 9.
4.Mecole Hardman, WR, Chiefs
Hardman has now scored in three games after catching six of nine targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Week 9. His nine targets tied a season high, and he’s had at least four looks in four consecutive games.
3.Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, Panthers
Marshall hauled in three of six targets for 53 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals, a week after setting a season high with nine targets and 87 yards. Yes, the touchdown came in garbage time, but Marshall has clearly emerged as Carolina’s No. 2 receiver.
2.Greg Dulcich, TE, Broncos
Dulcich remains an important cog in the Broncos offense, and with at least 11.1 PPR points in three games this season, he has to be considered on par with “must-start” TEs like T.J. Hockenson and Kyle Pitts.
1.Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, Dolphins
Wilson Jr. is owned in only 51% of Yahoo leagues, but after tying for the team lead in carries (9), rushing yards (51), and scoring a touchdown in his Miami debut, it’s safe to say he deserves to be owned in more.
