In this week’s edition of waiver wire pickups, we have several players with big upside. Additionally, there are four teams on BYE this week including some big-time offenses. Make sure to adjust your rosters accordingly and check out the players below who may be good fill-in options.
Kyler Murray – (47.3% Owned)
As of now, it looks like Kyler Murray will make his 2023 season debut in week 10. Murray is coming off an ACL injury but has been looking good in practice the last few weeks. If he gets the start Murray is always a threat to put up big numbers despite the limited Cardinals offense. If he is available on your waiver wire now is the time to pick him up.
Keaton Mitchell – (3.0% Owned)
The Baltimore Ravens ran all over the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday. Leading the way for the Ravens was surprising rookie Keaton Michell. He exploded for 138 rushing yards on just 9 carries including a 40-yard touchdown. It’s hard to ignore Mitchell’s upside as he is clearly the most explosive back in Baltimore. Starting him will always be a risk in this crowded backfield but he is definitely worth stashing on your roster.
Tank Dell – (52.4% Owned)
How about the Houston Texans offense? The Texans and sensational rookie C.J. Stroud put up 496 total yards of offense against Tampa Bay last Sunday. Almost all of it came through the air as Stroud had 470 passing yards and 5 touchdowns. It was an impressive day for this offense that many thought would be the weakness of the team. Wide receiver Tank Dell caught 2 touchdowns including the game-winner. He is worth grabbing now as the Texans have some favorable matchups coming up.
Jonnu Smith – (27.6% Owned)
Is Jonnu Smith the best tight end option in Atlanta? Kyle Pitts owners don’t want to hear this but Smith has been the more consistent option. On Sunday Smith had 100 yards receiving including a 60-yard touchdown. He also had 6 targets and has regularly been a part of the offensive game plan. If you need a tight end streamer for week 10, grab Smith as he has a favorable matchup against Arizona.
