Week ten appears to be another difficult one for fantasy owners as once again six teams are on bye. Due to that, owners will be losing plenty of potential fantasy options such as Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Andrew Luck, Philip Rivers, Alfred Morris, etc. Despite that, options should be available on waivers that can make an immediate impact and help in future weeks.
Mark Sanchez, QB Eagles: Well, I can’t say I saw this one coming. With Nick Foles sidelined due to a broken collarbone, the man formally known as “the Sanchize” takes control of the Eagles offense. In relief of Foles, Sanchez played fairly well throwing for 202 yards and two touchdowns but also added two interceptions. Being in charge of a fast paced offense with plenty of weapons, Sanchez becomes an enticing fantasy option. If you have Foles, you need to try and pick him up immediately. Especially in a week with Luck, Brady and Rivers on bye. Don’t be surprised if Sanchez manages to put up QB1 numbers the rest of the way.
Terrance West, RB Browns: In terms of touches, it has been an up and down rookie season for West. One week he is the starter, the next he is third in line behind Ben Tate and Isaiah Crowell. After leading the trio in touches this past Sunday, it looks like West is on the up swing once again. The Browns running game has stalled since Alex Mack got hurt, but West’s projected value makes him worth picking up.
Martavis Bryant, WR Steelers: Bryant has only played in three NFL games up to this point. But since he made his debut, Ben Roethlisberger has been on a role. Since Bryant has hit the field, Roethlisberger has thrown a ridiculous 14 touchdown passes. More impressive is that 5 of those have gone to 6’4′ Bryant. Roethlisberger for years has wanted a big target with the ability to beat defenders vertically. Now we are seeing the results. In a very favorable matchup against the Jets, Bryant is worth stashing in all leagues.
