2020 Fantasy Football Week 10 IDP Waiver Wire

on

Welcome to Week 10! It’s time for a look at my 2020 Fantasy Football Week 10 IDP Waiver Wire! After another week of Fantasy Football, it’s time to look at who I’m looking to add as well as who I’m ready to drop!

I’m writing this prior to the Patriots Vs. Jets game, but I’m confident Neville Hewitt for the Jets will have a big game and be the “Waiver Wire All-Star” from Week 9. However, we’ll just have to roll with Dre Greenlaw, who had a solid effort against Green Bay totaling 7 Tackles (4 Solo), for now. Here’s a quick look at some of our previous “Waiver Wire All-Stars”:

Christian Wilkins, DL, Miami Dolphins in Week 2
Quinnen Williams, DL, New York Jets in Week 3
Kyzir White, LB/DB, Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4
LBs Eric Wilson, MIN Vikings and Bobby Okereke, IND Colts in Week 5
Stephon Tuitt, DL, Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6
Jeffery Simmons, DL, Tennessee Titans in Week 7
Romeo Okwara, DL/LB, Detroit Lions in Week 8

I highly recommend checking your leagues for these players. You’d be surprised how available they might be!

Low Priority Adds:

These players likely have new opportunities; however, their ceilings are either capped by how long they’ll be viable to start, or how talented they are in their new position. They’re usually only starting due to short-term injuries to starters.

Sam Franklin, LB/DB, Carolina Panthers

Week 9 Stats: 7 Tackles (5 Solo), 1 Sack, 1 Tackle for Loss
Roster%: <1%

Franklin is a prime example of a player whose value likely has a shelf life. Originally filling in for Juston Burris, Franklin got to play an even larger role with Jeremy Chinn sidelined.

In this case, his expanded role wasn’t more snaps, but that more was expected of him. He was the tackling force in the secondary and the extra guy in the box as needed. Should Chinn miss additional time, Franklin will hold more value. However, if Chinn is back this week he’ll return to more of a complementary role that isn’t worth starting.

Medium Priority Adds:

Medium Priority Adds are players who either have newfound opportunity in expanded roles or are realizing their potential. However, I’m still speculative if they’ll continue their production for an extended period of time.

Trey Hendrickson, DL, New Orleans Saints

Week 9 Stats: 3 Tackles (2 Solo), 2 Sacks, 2 Tackles for Loss
Roster%: 6%

Hendrickson has been on my watch list all season. Just when he was starting to heat up earlier in the year he got banged up and hasn’t really been the same since. However, he seems to have found his groove again and he did so in a big way against the Buccaneers on prime time television.

To me, he’s kind of what we all wanted Marcus Davenport to be. He reminds me a lot of Sam Hubbard, DL of the Cincinnati Bengals last year. Similar build, kind of an out of nowhere surprise. He’s also 3rd in total sacks (7.5) this season. Not too shabby.

T.J. Edwards, LB, Philadelphia Eagles

Week 8 (Week 9 Bye) Stats: 12 Tackles (6 Solo), 1 Tackle for Loss, 1 Sack, 1 Forced Fumble
Roster%: 5%

The only reason Edwards isn’t high priority for me is that this is the kind of production we expected at the start of the season. However his production was little to nothing, and he was outshined by teammate Nathan Gerry.

This is significant to me because what’s changed since Edwards spike in production and lack thereof? Oh, that’s right, Nathan Gerry was placed on the short-term injured reserve. So without Gerry, he does well. Gerry will likely be back in Week 11 or 12, and that will be the true test if Edwards can maintain his production. I’m cautiously optimistic.

High Priority Adds:

High Priority Adds consist of players who have new opportunity or are spiking in production and playing to their potential. These players will regularly demand starting consideration.

Demarcus Lawrence, DL, Dallas Cowboys



Week 9 Stats: 4 Tackles (3 Solo), 1 Tackle for Loss, 1 Pass Defensed
Roster %: 13.4%

Okay so this one is a little cheap since his roster % is so high, but you need to check your leagues. He was available in two of mine and best believe he’ll be on my waiver list.

People have likely been frustrated with his lack of production at the start of the season and might have dropped him. However, he’s been on quite the upswing the last few weeks. Factor in the fact that over his final six games, he gets to face off against four bottom 12 offensive lines in terms of sacks allowed, three of which are the bottom three offensive lines.

If you can’t add him you might be able to trade for him cheaply. MAYBE. Lawrence is a solid option to have down the stretch.

A.J. Klein, LB, Buffalo Bills

Week 9 Stats: 5 Solo Tackles, 2 Sacks, 1 Tackle for Loss, 1 Forced Fumble, 1 Fumble Recovery
Roster%: 4.1%

Now that’s a stat line! Some knuckleheads may be surprised that this isn’t Bills LB Andre Smith. In all seriousness, it would have been nice to see him get some more tackles. However, his playmaking baseline bailed him out.

Matt Milano is headed to injured reserve, which leaves Klein in prime position to be a solid asset going forward. It’s likely Milano returns at some point, however, Klein is a near must-start option.

Hopefully, you checked out my Week 9 IDP Injury Round-Up as he was listed as a solid stream option.

IDP Drop List:

At this point in the season it’s important to be able to be flexible with our rosters. So here are some players who I’m comfortable dropping due to their lack of production or otherwise.

Cameron Jordan, DL, New Orleans Saints

2020 Stats: 32 Tackles, 2.5 Sacks
Roster %: 16.4%

This might be tough to read for some of y’all but Jordan isn’t what he used to be. Whether he’s being keyed in on and double-teamed, or he’s just lost a step is unclear, but his production just isn’t there. Unless you’re dead strapped at the position he’s an easy drop for me especially in Dynasty.

Matt Milano, LB, Buffalo Bills

2020 Stats: 21 Tackles, 1.5 Sacks, 1 Tackle for Loss
Roster %: 11.8%

This is purely due to me not wanting to deal with a player who’s been injury-plagued all year. I’m projecting that if he returns, he’ll likely be limited or not worth starting anyway as he won’t be fully 100%. If you have an IR Slot for him I’m fine with stashing him there, but if you don’t and need the space I’m fine with the drop.

Melvin Ingram, DL, Los Angeles Chargers

2020 Stats: 8 Tackles, 1 Interception
Roster%: 11%

This is a classic case of nostalgic rostering. The only reason this guy is still on rosters is that he was great once. News flash, he isn’t anymore. Time to free up a spot.
