NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

This Sunday, legendary quarterbacks succumbed to big losses and costly turnovers as neither Tom Brady nor Russell Wilson could lead their NFC teams to victory.

If you're trying to recover from your own waiver wire fumbles in past weeks, there are still a few up-and-comers to pluck in FindBet's Week 10 edition of Drops, Swaps and Shops.

Drop

Rex Burkhead & James White

NFL: Denver Broncos at New England Patriots Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Despite winning a Super Bowl in 2019, the Patriots offense has been something to avoid in fantasy with the exception of their franchise quarterback and Julian Edelman.

Committing to spread the ball amongst RBs is great for game-planning, but not so great for fantasy managers. It's always been a gamble with Patriots running backs, but in a 3-5 season, James White and Rex Burkhead haven't gotten the necessary volume to maintain a bench spot. While waivers are always thin at RBs, avoid starting these two at all costs.



Swap

Adam Thielen

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Looks can be deceiving: Thielen is ranked 9th among receivers, but he hasn't been putting up top ten numbers all season.

Sadly, this isn't Thielen's fault, but more the result of a shifting game plan that largely features a fantastic Dalvin Cook. Thielen isn't going to be bad, but he's becoming a riskier and riskier start: see what you can get for him on the trade block.

Chris Godwin

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Las Vegas Raiders Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Ignore the Bucs' humiliating loss to the Saints and focus on one thing: Godwin has been hurt all season.

Somehow, he managed to suit up Sunday despite literally breaking his finger on a Brady pass in Week 8. Godwin is capable of great things, but it's hard to know when he will be at his best again. If you're tired of waiting, see if you can sell this WR with a high upside when healthy.

Eric Ebron

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

If you're looking to bolster your tight end spot, you may want to consider Steelers TE Eric Ebron. The veteran journeyman has put up solid fantasy numbers the past few seasons, and he's just starting to show up on an undefeated Steelers offense. Ebron's seen at least four targets and has had multiple catches since Week 2, and with an incredibly easy schedule on the horizon, it could mean more opportunities for this tight end option.

Shop

Richie James

NFL: Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

It's the same story with the 49ers offense: you'll want to keep an eye on backups because chances are, they'll be starting eventually.

That's the case with Richie James in Week 9, as the quiet third-year receiver exploded with nine catches for 184 yards and a touchdown. With Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne and George Kittle out for the foreseeable future, James is one of the only people left to catch passes.

Travis Homer

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Travis Homer could have been a one-hit wonder this week fantasy-wise, but if Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde remain out, he could be a fantasy option in Week 10.

Of course, Homer will continue to split duties with DeeJay Dallas, but it's hard picking up on decent RBs mid-season. For now, Homer should be on your watchlist, but considering how quickly things change in 2020, he could soon be the main man in Seattle's backfield.

David Moore

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Billy Hardiman-USA TODAY Sports

Another Seahawks player to watch, David Moore has been making fantastic catches all season—he just hasn't had a high enough volume to earn a roster spot on your fantasy team.

Pressed to score, Moore got a season-high four catches against the Bills on Sunday, but he has landed in the end zone at least once in the past two weeks. Like Homer, Moore is worth watching as he could have a greater presence in the weeks to come.

Fernando Tatis Jr. has 340 million reasons to be thankful to be a Padre

K.C. Alfred/The San Diego Union-Tribune

Fernando Tatis Jr.'s extension means that we've now seen the four richest contracts in MLB history signed in the past three off seasons.

Tatis' extension is worth $340 million over the next 14 years, and is the third richest contract in league history. Mike Trout still owns the biggest MLB contract at $426.5 million signed in 2019. Mookie Betts owns the second richest contract in league history that will earn him $365 million that he inked with the Dodgers in 2020.
