Fantasy Football waiver wire, Week 10: Who are must-haves this week with half of the fantasy football season now in the books?

The NFL season is officially halfway in the books, and the cream is rising slowly to the top in every fantasy football league around the country. Derrick Henry’s injury caused a massive mid-season stir and possibly provided some hope to rosters that were previously on the outside looking in.

Unless, of course, you’ve been keeping up with your fantasy football waiver wire and making wise additions preemptively.

Leading into Week 10 of the NFL season, the pickings are rather slim on the fantasy football waiver wire, but there is always roster shuffling to be done. Let’s take a look at the players you should be submitting claims for this week at the offensive skill positions.

Fantasy Football waiver wire, Week 10

Running Backs

1. Nyheim Hines, Indianapolis Colts

In weeks 1-7, Nyheim Hines had just 50 total touches and two touchdowns with 246 yards from scrimmage, hardly making him a viable option in nearly any format of fantasy football league.

In weeks 8-9, Hines has picked up the pace considerably.

He’s averaged 7.5 touches per game over the last two games, but he’s been targeted as a receiver 11 times, more than the previous four games combined.

Jonathan Taylor is the obvious workhorse for the Colts, but Hines had a breakout game in Week 9 with 107 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. Tack on his duties in the return game, and Hines is a player who should be stashed at worst and streamed as a flex option at best this week.

2. Jordan Howard, Philadelphia Eagles

With 29 rushing attempts and three touchdowns over the last two weeks, it’s understandable that fantasy football managers would be running to the waiver wire to claim Jordan Howard.

But buyer beware — Howard offers nothing in the passing attack, and Miles Sanders will be coming back soon from injury.

If you are desperate for a streaming option this week, Howard has a bad matchup against the Broncos, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

3. Devin Singletary, Buffalo Bills

You hate to see Zack Moss injured, but you love to see Devin Singletary getting eight targets in the passing game if you’re in need of a Week 10 streaming option at the running back position.

Singletary had some good games early in the season but with his inactivity in recent weeks, there’s a chance he’s been dropped and could be available in your league.

4. Adrian Peterson, Tennessee Titans

The Titans didn’t give Jeremy McNichols any sort of shot to replace Derrick Henry as the team’s lead back.

Adrian Peterson was signed to the practice squad, elevated, and had 10 carries, a reception, and a touchdown. He only had 21 yards rushing on the game, but Peterson is still worth an add at this point, no question.

5. Mark Ingram, New Orleans Saints

Mark Ingram could, low-key, be a really nice pickup for your fantasy roster as the season progresses.

Getting traded away from the Texans was a godsend for him in real life and in the fantasy football realm.

The injury to Jameis Winston stinks, but it means the Saints will be relying on Ingram and Alvin Kamara that much more.

He has been involved to the tune of 15 carries and seven receptions in his first two games back with the Saints.
