NFL Week 10 – Waiver Wire Essentials Report

James Starks is still stealing the show in Green Bay

James Starks is still stealing the show from Eddie Lacy in Green Bay

James Starks (Ownership 16.9%)

James Starks is outplaying Eddie Lacy and getting plenty of chances to take over the lead back role. Although he is not able to quite clear that hurdle, he’s still scoring plenty of fantasy points and is the answer to fantasy players who desperately need help at the RB position. Against the Panthers, Starks carried the ball 10 times for only 39 yards, but racked up the fantasy points by catching 6 balls for 83 yards and scoring a touchdown. He may not be the sexiest add to your fantasy team, but when he’s healthy, he puts up the fantasy points.

Antonio Andrews (Ownership 17.6%)

Titans Coach Mike Mularkey promised to use Antonio Andrews as his feature running back during Week 9 and that’s exactly what he did. Andrews racked up 88 yards on 19 carries and hauled in one catch for 23 yards as Tennessee stunned the Saints. It was a game of miscues, but Andrews is clearly Mularkey’s guy. It’s been a while since Andrews found the end zone, but he is the clear cut starting back and is widely available. A true starting running back is a rare commodity and fantasy owners need to jump on him while they still can.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Ownership 7.8%)

Austin Seferian-Jenkins hasn’t been on the playing field since Week 2 when he suffered a nasty shoulder injury. However, he is due back this week for Bucs home tilt against the visiting Dallas Cowboys. When it comes to tight ends in the NFL, there is NOT a lot to choose from, and Seferian-Jenkins had an explosive start to the year before going down with injury. The 23-year-old is far from a Must-Add, but if your tight ends are not getting the job done for your team, pick him up.

Kamar Aiken (Ownership 4.7%)

With Steve Smith Sr. done for the year, Joe Flacco only has one real option for the number one wide receiver position and that is Kamar Aiken. Aiken has a nose for the end zone and thrived in the number one position with Smith went out the first time. Aiken is looking at a favorable Week 10 matchup at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
