In this edition of Win the Dynasty Waiver Wire, Curtis Patrick shares his top waiver targets for Week 10 in dynasty fantasy football leagues.
For the purposes of this series, I’ll be using FFPC “percentage rostered” data and adding commentary regarding what to do in deeper leagues as well. Quarterbacks are listed for purposes of Superflex and 2QB leagues. I only analyze players who are available in at least 50% of leagues.
Let’s take a look at the top priorities for Week 10.
Jake Luton (available in 93.6% of leagues)
FAAB: 20-25% in Superflex only
Considering he hadn’t called a play in the huddle since training camp, Luton excelled in his first career start. Posting 304 passing yards and a TD against a friendly Houston passing defense, the rookie finished as QB20 in Week 9. Fantasy players were surely appreciative of his ability to form a quick connection with D.J. Chark too.
The Jaguars have said Luton is “likely to start” in Week 10, and that’s enough to warrant a claim in Superflex and 2QB formats. Unfortunately for Luton, it’s a tougher road ahead in Weeks 10 and 11. Green Bay has only allowed one opposing QB to post more than 17 fantasy points over the past five weeks, and Pittsburgh is perhaps the toughest challenge a rookie could be asked to face.
Just two of his closest college profile sims in the RotoViz Box Score Scout were even drafted (Tony Pike, Ricky Stanzi). I’m not optimistic about an emergence that would lead to long-term dynasty value. This is a process-based claim; when young QBs start football games they need to be claimed just in case. Once upon a time, Tom Brady was a sixth-round pick.
