Fantasy managers are now beginning to scout out waiver wire gems that could turn into potential streamers, due to injuries piling up and bye weeks beginning. The running backs on the waiver wire will likely be scarce in deep formats because of the sheer amount of injuries to the position. However, players emerge every week and if you’re looking for a flex or RB2 option, read on for three fantasy football Week 10 RB streamers that are worth consideration.
Keep in mind, four teams have a bye week (BAL, CIN, NE, NYJ).
Players must be owned in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues to be included in the fantasy football Week 10 RB streamers column. All ownerships for players will be provided and will reflect that of Wednesday morning, once waivers are processed.
Fantasy Football Week 10 RB Streamers
Brian Robinson Jr. Fantasy Outlook at PHI (52.1%)
It’s hard to read the Washington Commanders’ backfield situation because it’s a committee-type role, but Brian Robinson Jr. continues to lead in carries. Since Week 5, he’s had three games with at least 13 carries, but he has only found the end zone once thus far. It’s obvious the Commanders see Robinson as the lead back, but sprinkle in J.D. McKissic and Antonio Gibson here and there for certain situations. It seems that he is becoming touchdown-dependent to be viable in fantasy, but has an opportunity to score against a Philadelphia Eagles team that is allowing over 20.0 fantasy points per game (FPPG) to opposing running backs.
Latavius Murray Fantasy Outlook at TEN (25.5%)
The acquisition of Chase Edmonds certainly puts a damper on the Denver Broncos’ running back situation, but if one back has stood out as dependable, it’s Latavius Murray. He’ll still split with Melvin Gordon, but Murray should still see plenty of work in the red zone. Murray has found the end zone in back-to-back games and has totaled double-digit carries in two of the last three games. Certainly, temper your expectations of a full workhorse role, but he’s easily the most complete back in Denver.
Jerick McKinnon Fantasy Outlook vs. JAX (13.6%)
Jerick McKinnon has been finding a ton of value in the receiving game over the last few games, but his lack of rushing production caps his fantasy value. The Kansas City Chiefs haven’t had a strong rushing game all season and even though rookie Isiah Pacheco was named the starter, the splits are nearly even between all three running backs. The Jacksonville Jaguars allow over 25.0 FPPG to opposing running backs thus far and over 34.5 FPPG to opposing wide receivers, so McKinnon should find value somewhere along the way.
