Keepers, Sleepers, and Jeepers: Week Ten

By Adam Filadelfo (@FNTSYArchitect)

Another week in the books and the playoffs looming closer. It's getting closer to crunch time for fantasy owners to fix their rosters. With injuries decimating owners on a weekly basis, every roster could use some help. The margin for error is growing smaller by the week and meaningful transactions are becoming less and less. With week ten staring fantasy owners in the face, it's time once agin to hit your waiver wire and get your teams ready for another week of fantasy football.

Keepers

Brandon Bolden- Running Back- New England Patriots- Now that the news of Dion Lewis is out, the Patriots and Dion Lewis owners need to figure out a contingency plan for the remainder of the season. Brandon Bolden is the front runner to replace Lewis. In limited action this season, Bolden has five catches for 41 yards and a touchdown. He figures to share the targets in the passing game with James White so owners that are missing Dion Lewis may want to grab both Bolden and White or one if you miss out on the other.

James White- Running Back -New England Patriots- Most fantasy owners assume either Brandon Bolden or James White is going to be the beneficiary of the Patriots losing Dion Lewis for the rest of the season. With the Patriots backfield becoming suddenly murky (with Blount being the exception), fantasy owners would be wise to grab both White and Bolden if possible until the Patriots decide which back will be the next Dion Lewis. Of course knowing the Patriots, both could end up being useful or useless.

Sleepers

Karlos Williams- Running Back- Buffalo Bills- With 336 yards rushing and five touchdowns to his name this season, Karlos Williams could be a valuable piece to a fantasy roster. Only issue is LeSean McCoy is expected to play this week. Even so, Williams has been productive even with Shady in the lineup so running back starved fantasy owners will want to pick up the rookie. Of course, his week ten matchup versus the Jets is a tough matchup.

Marcel Reece-Running Back-Oakland Raiders- With the concussion to Latavius Murray and not being cleared as of yet to play in week ten, fantasy owners should take a look at Marcel Reece. His value will be in the passing game so owners in PPR formats will definitely want to grab Reece. With 20 catches and over 200 yards and three touchdowns on the season,  Reece could be a boost to owners who lost Murray or just need a running back.

Jeepers

Matt Hasselbeck- Quarterback- Indianapolis Colts- Now that Luck is out a few weeks, Hasselbeck is taking over the signal caller duties in Indianapolis. When he filled in earlier this season for Luck, he played admirably. While he isn't on any fantasy owners' wish list, he could be a bye week fill in or there to help Luck owners. In the two games he played this season, Hasselbeck averaged over 18 fantasy points per game and while that is nothing to write home about, he's better than taking a zero at the position.

Wes Welker- Wide Receiver- St. Louis Rams- While Welker is more than a name than anything else at this point in his Pro Bowl career, fantasy owners should not expect too much from him. Last season, Welker finished with 49 catches for 464 yards and two touchdowns. He's a better NFL player than fantasy player and won't provide much fantasy impact for the next eight weeks.
