The multi-week injuries keep coming, and that’s why there will be a need to get trashy on your waiver wires every week. This is the best of what’s left after Wednesday waivers. Here’s your Garbage Grab for week 10:
Joique Bell RB, Lions: Bell has defaulted into the starting role in Detroit, and though he doesn’t offer a ton of upside, he’s finally healthy, and a starting RB should be owned and started in plus matchups. The packers are middle of the road against the run and have given up 8 TDs on the ground this season.
Kirk Cousins QB, Redskins: I’m normally against anything Cousins related, but if there’s any week you could think about starting the human turnover machine, it’s this one. The ‘Skins will be playing New Orleans, and if the past few weeks have been any indication, Rob Ryan is much more interested in teasing his fine silver locks than orchestrating a pass defense.
Devin Funchess WR, Panthers: Funchess finally made impact in week 9 with a 3-71-1 line, and his role will continue to grow this week against Tennessee. Now is the time to scoop him back in standard leagues.
Jay Ajayi RB, Dolphins: No rookie RB is more despised than Ajayi by the RosterWatch staff, but I’ve learned to reserve my judgement for problematic prospects until they get some games under their belt, a la Latavius Murray. Ajayi is injury prone we know, but he was effective in limited action his first week active and he’s going to get more touches in week 10.
Crockett Gillmore TE, Ravens: Gillmore is tied for the most TD catches with 3 in Baltimore, and with Steve Smith gone, he’s going to get a bump in targets along with his redzone looks.
Chris Thompson WR, Redskins: The ‘Skins are going to have to pull out all the stops to keep up with the scoring frenzy that the Saints have been unleashing, and with Alfred Morris pretty much fazed out of the offense, Thompson will be more involved than usual.
Chris Givens WR, Ravens: Givens has barely been around long enough to learn the playbook, but he’s already creeped into a starting role in Baltimore’s WR corps. In all honesty doesn’t seem that difficult, but Givens had some big days in St. Louis when he was a Ram, and he offers big play potential that the rest of Baltimore’s WRs lack.
Eric Ebron TE, Lions: Ebron’s play has been uneven to say the least, but he offers a more than serviceable option in week 10 against a Green Bay defense that is easy on TEs. Hopefully new OC Jim Bob Cooter gets him involved early.
Bryan Walters WR, Jaguars: Walters keeps popping up in Jaguar box scores, and though I don’t know how or why he got to the position he’s in, he has been sneaky productive and he gets one of the worst pass defenses in the league this week in the Ravens.
