Can you believe that it's Week 10 already? The race for your fantasy playoffs is no doubt heating up, and with the number of injuries we've had so far and 4 more teams on their byes this week, the waiver wire is going to be important once again to help you fill your lineups/benches. So @ZTwiceFF & @MattFFDynasty are back to help you with their waiver selections for Week 10, while @K_H_Ray is still away.

Waiver Target of The Week
Elijah Moore | WR | NYJ (11.8% Rostership - 8% FAAB Recommendation) (@MattFFDynasty)
We've been waiting for it, and all it took was the 3rd string Jets QB, but the Elijah Moore breakout week has finally arrived. This past week Vs IND, Moore turned 8 targets into 7 receptions, 84 yards, and 2 TDs. Moore has benefited from the absence of fellow WR Corey Davis, but even when he returns, I believe he's earned a starting role on this offense moving forward. And on a team that will likely be chasing games most weeks, so the volume, as well as the opportunity, should be there for Moore too. He's a must-add this week.
Rashod Bateman | WR | BAL (9.6% Rostership - 6% FAAB Recommendation) (@ZTwiceFF)
Another mainstay in this article is Bateman, as his roster percentage remains far too low. He has had 6+ targets in all three of his games so far this season, including 8 this week. As he becomes more comfortable in the NFL I expect him to continue growing in this Ravens offense. He has high upside the rest of the season and is, at worst, a solid flex option. Make sure to grab him before it's too late.
Rhamondre Stevenson | RB | NE (0.8% Rostership - 3% FAAB Recommendation) (@MattFFDynasty)
What a Week 9 for Stevenson, where he had 106 total yards and ran the ball with power and determination. Sadly he exited the game early in the 4th quarter following a head injury, so that is something to monitor, but so did fellow RB Damien Harris. Coach Bill Belichick always likely to mess with us in fantasy football, but after such a strong showing, Stevenson should have earned some respect back after the Week 1 lost fumble he had that resulted in his early-season benching. RBs like Stevenson are always worth the pickup at this stage of the season with the potential opportunity should anything happen to the starter.
Dan Arnold | TE | JAX (6.3% Rostership - 2% FAAB Recommendation) (@ZTwiceFF)
I talked about Arnold last week but his roster percentages still remains so low, so he's back. This week against a tough Bills defense, Arnold led the Jags in receiving catching 4 of 7 targets for 60 yards. He's built a good rapport with Lawrence since being traded and he's a solid option at the thin TE position due to his usage in the offense.
Van Jefferson | WR | LAR (19% Rostership - 2% FAAB Recommendation) (@MattFFDynasty)
Van Jefferson has now clearly cemented his role as the WR3 on this LAR offense following the release of fellow WR DeSean Jackson and played 96% of the Rams offense snaps this past week. He saw 7 targets but could only turn them into 3 receptions for 41 yards. But the opportunity is there and if a piece of this high-powered passing offense is available on your waivers, you should take it. Jefferson will likely have the deep threat role moving forward so weekly big-play opportunities will be there for him. He's worth the add to at least be a bye weeks fill-in.
Matt Ryan | QB | ATL (32.6% Rostership - 1% FAAB Recommendation) (@ZTwiceFF)
Matty Ice had his first big game without Calvin Ridley, and it came against a great Saints defense. This week he's got a decent matchup in a likely high scoring game against the Cowboys. While there remains the risk of inconsistency with Ryan, the waiver wire is becoming thin for QBs and Ryan has the upside you can't find in many other waiver options.
