Fantasy Football: Top 5 Add/Drops after Week 10

It’s Week 10. It’s late in the season. The waiver wire is paper thin. Yet, there are always players that you should take chances on, and there are players that you should drop because they offer nothing, in performance or upside.

A key injury in Week 10 and the bye weeks of some key players make the waiver wire still a viable option as a resource to fill out your roster.

DSN is here to let you know who to claim and who to drop.

The Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers are all on bye weeks for Week 11.



1. Add Danny Amendola

With the injury to Julian Edelman, Amendola will surely be the most added player in fantasy leagues when the waiver wire claims go through Wednesday morning. Owned in only 22% of ESPN Fantasy Leagues, Amendola looks to be Tom Brady’s main target going forward, aside from Rob Gronkowski. Edelman was the No. 7 ranked WR in standard leagues before he went down, and while Amendola probably won’t reach that peak, don’t be shocked to see the sure handed WR break into the top 20 by year’s end.



 2. Add Jordan Reed

Reed is the hottest tight end in fantasy football right now, scoring three touchdowns over his last two contests. Over his last three contests, his lowest scoring output in ESPN standard scoring leagues is seven points. While owned in just over 75% of ESPN Fantasy Leagues, Reed is still an option for many people out there, and at a TE position where there is little depth, Reed should be a must add for any league he is still floating around in.



3. Add Michael Floyd

Coming into the season, I was as high on Floyd as anyone. It appeared that Larry Fitzgerald was becoming an afterthought in the Arizona Cardinals’ offense, and Floyd seemed to be the man to take over the role as the No. 1 WR. Floyd severely disappointed through the first five games, only catching eight passes and failing to reach the endzone. The last four games, Floyd has been an absolute monster, scoring a touchdown in every game, including two against the Seahawks in Week 10. He’s got some competition for targets with John Brown slowly getting back to full health, but with the few options that are out there right now, Floyd is worth the risk.

4. Drop James Jones

Jones was one of the waiver wire darlings through the first half of the season. After Jordy Nelson went down to injury in the preseason, the Green Bay Packers signed Jones off the scrap heap, and he came in and immediately made his name known. After scoring a touchdown in five of his first six games, Jones seemed to be a receiver that could be relied on week after week. Unfortunately for owners, Jones has completely fallen off the map the past three weeks, having caught just three passes for 59 yards over the last three games, culminating in zero receptions against the Detroit Lions last week. Davante Adams has returned from injury and seems to have a clear handle on the No. 2 receiver role in Green Bay. It’s time to let go of Jones and look elsewhere for WR help.



5. Drop the Cleveland Browns’ backfield

Almost every team has at least one running back that is worth picking up as a flier. The Cleveland Browns are the exception. Isaish Crowell has been the No. 1 running back for the entire year, but has yet to rush for over 72 yards and only has 1 rushing TD on the season. Duke Johnson Jr. seemed to have some upside, especially in the passing game, but he’s yet to do much this year aside from a couple of receiving touchdowns. There aren’t many running back options out there, and if you are incredibly desperate, feel free to hold onto either of these guys, but any team that is still competing should stay far away from both of these RBs.
