Fantasy Football Bench Stash, Must Have Slippers: Week 10 (2022)
This week the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, and New York Jets all have a bye in Week 10. This can make things difficult to keep players away if you have a serious injury or a number of players sent off this week as you may be forced to line up with duct tape and spare parts to hope for the best.
As we near the end of the fantasy football regular season, picking the right players in time for your league’s playoffs can be the difference between winning and losing. As we’ve already seen with the Carolina Panthers, offenses can change when coaches are fired and players buried on the depth chart. D’Onta Foreman They may emerge when the front starter is traded away. Teams like the Chicago Bears can also improve their offense during the season. Players like it in the first few weeks Darnell Mooney And Cole Kemet Considered droppable. Now they are interesting options for fantasy for the rest of the season.
Week in and week out, it’s my job to keep my ear to everything that’s going on with the 32 teams to help you bargain for some free options on your league’s waiver wire. A few weeks ago, D’Onta Foreman With a late waiver was suggested as hidden Christian McCaffrey Potentially being traded and teams that planned to pick up Foreman and move on were handsomely rewarded. Broncos tight end Greg Dulcich A big name was on this list just a few weeks ago and now he is listed in the majority of leagues. Here are some of the top players sneaking in before Week 10 begins.

Weekend weaver wear stashes 10 weeks in advance
Mack Hollins, Las Vegas Raiders – 22% listed
earlier this week Hunter Renfro And Darren Waller Both were placed on injured reserve by the Raiders, making Hollins the team’s de facto No. 2 passing option almost by default. Hollins played at least 85 percent of the team’s offensive snaps all season and had an epic performance in Week 3 where he had 8 receptions for 158 yards and 11 targets with a TD. Hollins has seen a total of 44 targets in 8 games this season and that number should increase over the next 4 games with the players listed above.
While the next two matchups against the Colts and Broncos defenses are tough, the Raiders get the Seahawks in Week 12, which could be a high-scoring affair. Still, if you’re sore at wide receiver this week and need a warm body to put in your lineup at WR or even the flex spot, Hollins is a great pickup. He is upside down and going to feed by Derek Carr Regardless
Isaiah Spiller, Los Angeles Chargers – 4% listed
One of the dynasty community’s favorite prospects this offseason, Spiller fell on draft day after a poor showing at the NFL Combine where he fell to the 4th round. He was mostly inactive for a large portion of the early season but now appears to have earned the trust of the Chargers coaching staff. Spiller is now listed as the No. 2 running back on the Chargers’ depth chart Thank you Austin. While Spiller’s big fantasy value might require an injury to Ekeler, he’s a player to keep an eye on for the rest of the season as we know their offense can be at full strength.
Last week against Atlanta, Spiller had 7 carries for just 29 yards, but it was still nice to see him out there. Sony Michel And Joshua Kelly The team hasn’t had viable options this year and they need a backup who can come in and spell Spiller in the worst possible way. That hasn’t happened yet, but it’s fair to say Spiller has the most upside of anyone not named Austin Eckeler on the Chargers’ depth chart, so he’s a player worth rostering and holding just to see what happens.
Traylon BurksTennessee Titans – 17% enlisted
The 18th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft, Burks began to emerge as the Titans’ top pass catcher before being sidelined by a turf toe injury. He is a big-bodied receiver who can stretch the field. After spending the past four weeks on injured reserve, Burks is eligible to return within the next 21 days after the team designated him to return on Nov. 9. A Nov. 17 game against the Green Bay Packers is likely for Burks.
After the Titans made the trade AJ Brown On draft night for the selection Burks has become, they have every intention of incorporating him into the offense and even making him the No. 1 target, so the goals and production should come. The Titans don’t have much competition at wide receiver with the likes of Burks on their current depth chart Robert Woods, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Cody HollisterAnd Chris Conley. While we still don’t know when Burks will return, he’s going to be a key asset to the Titans’ offense as they look to make a playoff push at 5-3 and secure their spot atop the AFC South. Before turning pro, Burks finished his junior season at Arkansas with 66 receptions for 1,104 yards and 11 TDs.
Jaylen WarrenPittsburgh Steelers – 28% listed
It’s no secret Nazi Harris Lisfranc hasn’t looked like his usual self this season after suffering an injury during training camp over the summer. We haven’t seen much yet though Jaylen Warren, he has easily looked like the more explosive running back of the two this season. So far in 2022, Warren has rushed 29 for 153 yards (5.3 AVG) while catching 12 passes for 88 yards. He is shorter than Harris but runs much faster.
from Ben Roethlisberger The retired Steelers’ offense hasn’t looked anything like its old self as they’ve ranked near the bottom 5 in nearly every offensive category this season. Could the Steelers just shut down Naji Harris for the season? This is within the realm of possibility and for this reason, Warren should be listed whenever possible. Warren is rumored to be more involved in the Pittsburgh game plan for the rest of the season, and we should be looking for him now if he’s free.
Cade AutonTampa Bay Books – 19% listed
A fourth-round selection by the Bucs in the 2022 NFL Draft, Otton has held up over the past few weeks and has seen 26 total targets over the past 5 games. In an epic comeback in Week 9 against the Los Angeles Rams, Otton had the game-winning touchdown and finished the day with 5 receptions for 68 yards and a TD. We know that Tom Brady And the Bucs have been missing Rob Gronkowski Since he retired in the offseason, there is an opportunity for Oton to fill that role.
While generally, it’s wise to avoid rookie tight ends for fantasy purposes, Otton looked good last month and could be a great option at tight end if you hit the position or in a bye week. If Tampa can ride the momentum and turn their offense around after last week, Auton could be a great game for the rest of the season.
Deshaun WatsonCleveland Browns – 37% listed
While still suspended, Deshaun Watson is eligible to return here in Week 13 against his former team, the Houston Texans. Watson was a great NFL quarterback in the seasons he played, but he hasn’t taken a snap since 2020. How rusty will he be when he finally plays for the first time in about 2 years? Still, if you’re stuck at the quarterback spot or still have a late bye week coming up, Watson could be a great spot starter for your lineup.
Sometimes it’s smart to roster a player with fantasy upside, so that no one else in your league can roster him and start that player against you. Watson finished as QB5 in 2020 and 2019 and QB4 in 2018. He has some effective weapons around him Nick Chubb, Karim Hunt, Amari CooperAnd David Njoku. Late in the season, the Browns played the Texans, Bengals, Ravens, Saints and Commanders. With Watson’s skills and upside, he deserves to be listed in almost all formats.
DeAndre CarterLos Angeles Chargers – 28% listed
The Chargers offense has been decimated by injuries this season. Currently, the wide receiver starts Keenan Allen And Mike Williams Set to miss the team’s contest against the San Francisco 49ers here in Week 10. Last week Carter played 83 percent of the team’s offensive snaps against the Atlanta Falcons and caught 5 passes for 53 yards. Although the 49ers play one of the best defenses in the league, the only way they can be beaten is through the air.
Josh Palmer Has been the No. 3 WR on the team and is currently the WR1 with Allen and Williams hitting. However, we know how good Justin Herbert is, there is still room for Carter to have some good games while competing with Palmer, Ekeler. Gerald Everett for the goal. The Chargers follow the Chiefs in Week 11 and the Cardinals in Week 12
Taylor HeinikeWashington Commander – 9% listed
Last week against Minnesota, Heinike was QB15 on the week with 14.7 fantasy points, but he had a solid game against the Colts the previous week with 23.1 fantasy points. Heinicke is 2-1 as a starter on the season for Commander and starter Carson Wentz Will be eligible to come back after next week. If Heinicke and the Commanders can upset the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night, is there a chance Ron Rivera and company will stick with him?
After a rough start, the Commanders fell back to 4-5. Ron Rivera likes Haynie and the weapons around him are much better than last year Curtis Samuel and the rookie phenom Jahan Dotson On top of being talented Terry McLaurin. Heinicke is the running back for your lineup and even though the matchup against the Eagles’ defense is tough this week, Heinicke could play the Texans, Falcons and Giants over the next three weeks if he’s the starter.
