One of Landry Jones' top targets is worth a look this week.
The fantasy playoffs are right around the corner and owners at the bottom of the standings have just about thrown in the towel. As a result, there is not as much competition for waiver wire claims with the season drawing to a close. Take a look at some late-season waiver gems as we head into Week 10.
Ryan Griffin, QB-Tulane
Since his return from injury, Griffin has passed for 1,100 yards and ten touchdowns in three games. Fantasy owners should get solid production from the senior quarterback as the Green Wave play Rice, Memphis, East Carolina, and Houston to close the season.
Ray Holley, RB-Louisiana Tech
Holley isn’t a bad acquisition if you play in a deep league because the senior running back is averaging over 95 total yards from scrimmage, three receptions, and a touchdown per game
Damon Bullock, RB-Iowa
Damon Bullock opened the season as the starter, but Mark Weisman took over when Bullock was lost for several weeks due to a head injury. Now, Weisman is the one that is injured and the running back position in Ames may be Bullock’s once again.
Jalen Saunders, WR-Oklahoma
We are going to use the logic that we did a couple of weeks ago with Bronson Hill of Eastern Michigan when he ran for 283 yards against Toledo. When a receiver catches 15 passes for 181 yards in a single game at this point of the season, you should claim him off of waivers and keep Saunders away from other owners.
Eric Monette, WR-Western Michigan
Last week, we identified Josh Schaffer as the favorite target of quarterback Tyler Van Tubbergen, but with fellow receiver Jamie Wilson sidelined with a groin injury, Monette has posted two consecutive eight-catch games.
Bryan Underwood, WR-North Carolina St
Underwood only has 28 catches, but he has caught at least one touchdown in every game this season and has posted back-to-back 100-yard games.
Myles White, WR-Louisiana Tech
White is the second-leading receiver for the Bulldogs behind Quinton Patton and has at least 100 yards receiving and a touchdown in back-to-back games.
Ryan Grant, WR-Tulane
Grant’s success has a lot to do with the return of Ryan Griffin at quarterback. Over the past two weeks, the junior receiver has caught 12 passes for 199 yards and three touchdowns.
