Even though Week 9 isn’t fully in the books, it’s time to cast an eye over your Week 10 waiver wire pickups for the 2021 season.
We continue having to deal with bye weeks, with four teams taking the week off this week:
- Chicago Bears
- Cincinnati Bengals
- Houston Texans
- New York Giants
All of these pickups are written in percentage, not priority. For a player to be eligible they have to be owned in less than 50% of leagues. The rostered percentage is taken from ESPN. Now, let’s get into them!
Matt Ryan (ATL) @DAL 44.4% rostered
Ryan is doing everything he can each week to get the Falcons winning. The Saints defense is a tough unit, and Ryan managed to do everything he wanted. Crucially, he showed that he can perform without Calvin Ridley. Against Dallas, who just gave up to Denver at home, Ryan is a fine pick up.
Teddy Bridgewater (DEN) v PHI 24.7% rostered
Another week of Bridgewater on waivers. Mr. Streaming QB has played each week well enough to fill in if you need, this week the Eagles are the team that travel to Denver to face him. A fine plug-in if you have just lost Joe Burrow to the bye week.
Trevor Siemian (NO) @TEN 3.5% rostered
Siemian was announced to be the week 9 starter, and performed well enough to be the guy for Week 10. If he isn’t, then Taysom Hill (9.1% rostered) is a decent pickup too. The matchup against the Titans secondary is a good one, and this offense is able to move the ball effectively.
Others to Consider
- Trevor Lawrence (JAX) @IND 28.8% rostered
- Jordan Love (GB) v SEA 20.0% rostered
- Mac Jones (NE) v CLE 14.3% rostered
