In this space we will highlight some NFL quarterbacks that need to be considered on the Week 10 waiver wire for your fantasy football teams. Some of these quarterbacks may have a good matchup for Week 10, have been putting up relevant points recently, or are just underowned.
Fantasy Football Week 10 Waiver Wire - Quarterbacks (QB)
Mike Glennon – Tampa Bay Bucs
Baller Move: Stash in Deep Leagues
Analysis: Mike Glennon survived his short-week matchup against the Carolina Panthers' fourth-ranked defense, and followed that by almost leading the undermanned Bucs to a seemingly improbable upset of the 7-1 Seahawks. In a tough week 9 matchup Glennon played carefully throwing 17-23 with 168 yards and 2 TD/0 INT. Despite consecutive matchups against top defenses he has not thrown an interception. Week 10 should be an easier matchup against a Miami Dolphins team distracted with a terrible hazing incident. Apart from his 23 attempts in week 9 against a stalwart Seahawks secondary, you can expect Glennon to be close to his average of 45 passing attempts per start.
Nick Foles - Philadelphia Eagles
Baller Move: Add in All Leagues
Analysis: Nick Foles' 13 TD and 0 INT are absolutely legitimate. Even when you try to discount his 7 TD performance against the porous Raiders defense you can’t deny his 6 TD and 0 INT in his other starts. He faces the Packers 19th ranked D in week 10 and should be able to pick them apart the same they let Josh McCown do in week 9. Not only is Foles putting up prolific numbers, but he is doing so efficiently. In his week 9 performance he only threw the ball 28 times compared to 24 rushes for a balanced attack. And the most he’s thrown the ball is 31 times which is toward the bottom of the league average. With Shady McCoy an option in the backfield, flat defenses can’t just sit back. Look to Foles as a near #1 down the stretch.
Case Keenum - Houston Texans
Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues (for the right matchups)
Analysis: Case Keenum had already put up a very good game against the Chiefs' 3rd ranked passing defense and proved that was no fluke in week 9. He is now officially fantasy relevant following a 20-of-34 350 yards and three touchdown performance in his week 9 Sunday night matchup against the Colts. He distributed the ball equally with 18 passes for 163 yards to the left side and 16 passes for 193 yards to the right side of the field. His week 10 matchup against a weak Arizona Cardinals passing D bodes well for Keenum to continue his ways. Consider Case a good fill-in for your bye week.
