Week Ten: Keepers, Sleepers, and Jeepers

It's time to make your move, Brainiacs.  The playoffs are right around the corner and Adam Filadelfo (@Frostt24) is back to talk about possible roster modifications heading into week ten.

----------------------------------------------------

It's time once again to hit your waiver wire to get those coveted free agents to help your fantasy team reach the playoffs. At this point in the season, every move (good or bad) holds extra weight and owners will be looking for every little advantage that they can find. The waiver wire is the place where fantasy championships are won or lost.

Keepers




Nick Foles- There's a good chance Nick Foles is already owned in most leagues but if he isn't, quarterback needy owners should grab him immediately. The only downside to Foles is it isn't certain he remains the starter once Vick is healthy enough to return but seeing how Foles just tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes in a single game, it's hard to see Chip Kelly going with Vick even if he is healthy enough to play. On the season, Foles has passed for over one thousand yards and thirteen touchdowns to zero interceptions.

Aaron Dobson- It looks like Tom Brady may finally have a dependable receiver from his rookie receiving corp. Dobson played ninety percent of the snaps in week nine and did not disappoint. He finished with five receptions for one hundred fifty yards and two touchdowns. Dobson should be added as it appears the Patriots are starting to get healthy on offense.

Sleepers

Case Keenum- At this point in the season, it's apparent that Matt Schaub will not be getting his job back with the Texans. Case Keenum played well enough in week nine that he deserves to be the starting quarterback going forward. Week nine saw Keenum pass for three hundred fifty yards and three touchdowns. He's even made Andre Johnson fantasy relevant again. Through two starts, Keenum has thrown for six hundred twenty one yards and four touchdowns. There may be growing pains with Keenum but for owners in need of a starting signal caller, Keenum can be the savior to your fantasy season.

Riley Cooper- As long as Foles remains the starter in Philadelphia, Riley Cooper should continue to produce. Week nine saw Cooper finish with five receptions for one hundred thirty nine yards and three touchdowns. Through nine weeks, Cooper has four hundred fifty three yards and five touchdowns. While he won't have games like week nine very often, he does remain a receiver four with three upside as long as Foles is under center.

Jeepers

Jerricho Cotchery- Don't let his week nine performance fool you. Aside from his seven receptions for ninety six yards and three touchdowns in week nine, Cotchery has been forgettable for the first eight weeks. Before this week, he had only two touchdowns and averaged just over three catches per game. His performance was based more on Big Ben throwing almost fifty passes.

Saints DST- Last week the Saints allowed 26 points to the Jets without getting a pick, a fumble recovery, or a defensive touchdown.  They only managed two sacks and in many formats only produced one fantasy point.  This week they've got the Dallas Cowboys, which is obviously a dramatically more difficult matchup.  In ESPN leagues their ownership is actually up 5% this week, but you do not want any part of these guys this week.
