Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 10

Waiver Wire Dumpster Diving takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues.

Did you survive the dreaded bye-pocalypse? Week 10 won’t be nearly as challenging with only the Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans, Denver Broncos, and Minnesota Vikings on bye. I will be filling in for Phillip Caldwell for this week. If you followed his advice and rostered Marquez Valdes-Scantling, you were very happy the results. A groin injury could threaten Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison’s season, which would solidify Valdes-Scantling’s role as the team’s No. 2 receiver. Valdes-Scantling led the Packers in air yards with 127, which he converted into 101 receiving yards. So what other gems are left to be unearthed heading into Week 10?



Harris finally went boom for fantasy players catching 10 of 12 targets for 124 receiving yards in Washington’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons. This was his fifth game filling in for an injured slot WR Jamison Crowder who continues to deal with an ankle injury. It would be easy to equate Harris’ production to garbage time, but over the last five games he has led the Washington WRs in targets (29) and has the second most air yards (253). Paul Richardson was just placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury and it is in the realm of possibilities that Crowder could be placed there as well.

Harris has a very favorable schedule the rest of the season according to the Buy Low Machine.

The Bills have had minimal production from their WRs all season.

It did not surprise me that the Bills gave Pryor a legitimate role against the Chicago Bears. He was targeted five times and had the second most air yards (66). Pryor played 82 percent of the offensive snaps against the Bears while Kelvin Benjamin only played 74 percent. He should play a substantial role moving forward considering the volume of air yards Benjamin has accumulated yet failed to translate into receiving yards.

Zay Jones is unlikely to develop into a reliable receiver this season. Andre Holmes is an uninspiring receiving option while rookies Ray-Ray McCloud and Cam Phillips are too raw. The only roadblock that Pryor has in his way to fantasy relevancy is whoever the Bills have under center.


It is easy to dismiss Vannett’s performance in the Seahawks’ loss to the Chargers as an anomaly. He caught six of eight targets for 52 receiving yards and a touchdown. Did you know the only Seahawks player with more targets than Vannett (30) is Tyler Lockett?

Wilson AYAMany anticipated that Ed Dickson would be anointed the Seahawks No. 1 tight end this week after making his season debut last week. Vannett ended up playing 48 offensive snaps to his 25. Any TE in an offense led by quarterback Russell Wilson is worth monitoring, but given the Seahawks upcoming schedule, Vannett could become a ray of sunshine in the desolate darkness that has become the TE position this season.
