Week 10 of the NFL season is in the books, meaning “Shop or Drop with Rob” is back, giving you advice on who to pick up and drop every week in your fantasy football league.

Waiver Wire additions

Christian Watson – WR – Green Bay Packers – 8% rostered via Yahoo! Sports

Christian Watson had the game of a lifetime against the Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday. The rookie receiver caught four balls for 107 yards and a whopping three touchdowns. He was clearly Rodgers No. 1 target throughout the game. 

The Packers offense looks as if they are getting back on track, only providing more opportunities for Watson moving forward.

Kadarius Toney – WR – Kansas City Chiefs – 51% rostered via Yahoo! Sports

Kadarius Toney hauled in four passes for 57 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also found the endzone once, something the second year wide out was never able to do on his former team, the New York Giants. It seems as if Patrick Mahomes has found a new weapon in Toney, as this Chiefs offense is about to become even more dangerous.

Cole Kmet – TE – Chicago Bears – 59% rostered via Yahoo! Sports

A player rarely, if ever, appears on this list twice in a row, but if that player has scored five touchdowns in the past three weeks as a tight end, they deserve all of the spotlight. 

Cole Kmet once again popped off this past Sunday. The big man caught four passes for 72 yards and found the endzone twice. All of a sudden, the Bears offense looks elite, boding well for Kmet’s production as the season goes on.

Rachaad White – RB – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 44% rostered via Yahoo! Sports

Rachaad White had a team high 22 carries and 105 rushing yards in Germany. The rookie halfback out-carried Leonard Fournette in the win against the Seattle Seahawks. If White can start finding the endzone, he will have high value down the stretch in your fantasy league.

Isiah Pacheco – RB – Kansas City Chiefs – 24% rostered via Yahoo! Sports

Similar to Rachaad White, Isaiah Pacheco is a rookie running back who is slowly starting to take over his team’s backfield. In the win against Jacksonville, Pacheco rushed 16 times for 82 yards while Clyde Edwards-Helaire did not have a carry the entire game. Pacheco is destined to take over the RB1 job in Kansas City.

Players to drop

Robbie Anderson – WR – Arizona Cardinals

Robbie Anderson has been a disappointment since being traded from the Carolina Panthers. Since the trade deadline, he has scored 0.6 fantasy points. With DeAndre Hopkins back from suspension, Kyler Murray will not look Anderson’s way too often.

Deon Jackson – RB – Indianapolis Colts

Jonathan Taylor looks as if he has returned to his old form this past Sunday. Jackson was a serviceable streamer, but with JT back in action, there is simply no need for him on your roster.

James Cook – RB – Buffalo Bills

It is evident that the Buffalo Bills do not have a running game, but when they do run the ball, the touches will go to Devin Singletary. James Cook has only rushed for 37 yards in the past two weeks. The rookie running back will not see many chances in this pass first offense.

If you see some of these guys on your waiver wire, try and scoop them up.  Although some players may not have a spot on your starting roster at the moment, injuries are bound to happen. When everyone else in your league is scrambling around looking for replacements, you’ll remember that you read “Shop or Drop with Rob”, and reinforcements are already sitting on your bench.
