Double digit week time people. You have 3-5 more chances at W’s to punch your ticket to the fantasy football playoffs. This waiver column will have a little different spin, as I will touch on players who have been out for weeks/months and may now be worth rostering again. These will all carry plenty of risk, so I’ll come from an optimistic lens.
Danny Woodhead, RB, BAL
Woodhead is eligible to return from IR, and should slide right into his third/passing down role. Buck Allen has underperformed after a few positive starts, and Woodhead could be a PPR flex play by Week 11.
Greg Olsen, TE, CAR
The Panthers traded away Kelvin Benjamin, just in time for Olsen to return from IR and potentially 8+ targets/game. The TE position this year is especially heinous minus 5-6 guys, so Olsen immediately reclaims TE1 treatment moving forward.
Corey Coleman, WR, CLE
I so wanted to put Josh Gordon on this list, but the rational move is plucking this Browns receiver instead. Coleman is the WR1 on the lowly Browns when healthy, and Gordon hasn’t played a game since 2014. I do hope I’m wrong, as Gordon cleaning his life up and returning to NFL stardom is a fantastic success story!
Charles Clay, TE, BUF
You need to see Clay for one game to ensure the leg is sturdy, but then feel free to deploy him as a cheap streaming TE1. Tyrod Taylor has missed his main safety valve from September.
New England DST
The Patriots defense has quietly gotten better all year, and have had the bye week to iron out the remaining flaws. The Broncos defense should keep the game interesting early on, but I do not see a Brock Osweiler lead offense keeping up with Belichick and Brady. Their should be ample turnovers, leaving the Patriots D in a plum streaming spot.
