Week #10: Sunday Night Waiver Wire
Michael Nazarek

11/6/2016 - SUNDAY - 6:00 PM PT: The following waiver wire is a quick first look at certain players who could make a solid fantasy impact each Sunday night during the season. They may or may not be free agents in your league, but we want to ensure you know about them in order to have the first chance at a possible free agent acquisition. This list does NOT replace our free-agent feature released on Tuesday nights ("The Market"). You should consider it an abbreviated early-bird bonus list with a quick 1-2 lines of fantasy analysis. Note: This list is NOT AN EXACT RANKING, but rather just a quick list with pseudo preference from best to worst. Our official free-agent rankings for the week will be released in Tuesday's "Market" feature...


QB Dak Prescott, DAL (r) - Once again, he impressed with 247 passing yards and three score against a hapless Browns team on the road.


QB Joe Flacco, BAL - He threw for 241 yard and one score with a pick at home in a big win over the Steelers today.


QB Sam Bradford, MIN - He threw for 273 yards and a score at home in a loss to the Lions today.

RB Peyton Barber, TB (r) - He's healthy and led the Bucs with 55 total yards from the tailback position last Thursday against he Falcons. He will start if RB Doug Martin (hamstring) can't play next week.


RB Paul Perkins, NYG (r) - He saw a surprising 14 touches today, totaling 457 yards of offense with 3 catches against the Eagles. His role is definitely growing.


RB Bilal Powell, NYJ - He totaled 51 yards on 10 touches with 4 catches at Miami today.
