Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 10
I had to dig deep into the recesses of the waiver-wire to find these fantasy nuggets, but times are hard in fantasy with so many injuries plaguing the league. Here’s the Grab…
Kalen Ballage, Chargers
Ballage has been a let down in fantasy up until last week when he ran the ball 15 times for 69 yards and a TD in his first game as a Charger. With Justin Jackson now on IR, Ballage, Troymaine Pope and Joshua Kelley will round out the LA backfield. Based on the previous game, Ballage makes for the most likely goal line back.
Wayne Gallman, Giants
Devonta Freeman is on IR, making Gallman and Alfred Morris the primary ball-carriers for the Giants. Gallman isn’t flashy, but he gets the job done and he’s scored in 3 straight games. His ceiling isn’t high, but you could do a lot worse in your flex.
Jalen Reagor, Eagles
Reagor scored a TD on 6 targets in Week 8, his first game back since week 2, and he’ll look to get even more involved this week after the bye. Reagor will rival Miles Sanders as the most dynamic player in the Eagles’ offense, and he’ll have little trouble getting open against the Giants.
Anthony Miller, Bears
Miller is averaging 9.5 targets and 67 yards over his last 2 games, and this week he’ll face a Minnesota team that is the 2nd best matchup for WRs going into Week 10.
Chris Conley, Jaguars
Conley caught 7 of 8 targets for 52 yards from interim QB Jake Luton in Week 9, and he’ll have another shot to rack up PPR points this week, now that Lavishka Shenault is sitting.
Jordan Reed, 49ers
Reed was outplayed by Ross Dwelley in Week 9, but it was his first game back from injury. Reed should receive the bulk of targets in the TE position for the 49ers moving forward though, and we know that he can be a fantasy beast as long as he stays healthy. The fact that the 49ers have so many shortages at the WR position only helps his chances.
Drew Lock, Broncos
Lock is coming off of his first 300+ yard game in Week 9, and he’s riding the momentum to a tasty matchup with a generous Raiders secondary. With more weapons returning from injury on a weekly basis, Lock could develop into a weekly starter sooner than later.
