Pickups for Week 10

Are you in need of some assistance on who to pickup to help bolster your roster? Here are some players who we think can make a positive impact on your fantasy squad, who are still available in most leagues.

Must Haves:

Solid Pickups
Shaun Hill (QB) - It look likes Matt Stafford might be out for the year, so Hill will most likely take over.  Hes got a lot of good options on that offense, and earlier this year he filled in for the injured Stafford and averaged over 280 yards passing in the 4 games he started with 8 TDs and 6 INTs.
29/50 323 Yards 1td 1int

Nate Burelson (WR) - This guy has been a savior to some fantasy teams.  Over the last 4 games he has TDs in 3 of them, averaging 6 catches and 66 yards per game.  Calvin Johnson helps open the field and Burleson has been taking advantage of it.  Pick him up and use him even without Stafford.
4 catches 47 yards

Seyi Ajirotutu (WR) - Who cares you cant say his name, and never heard of him before.  When your playing on Philip Rivers offense and you played WR your going to make noise.  With Jackson still suspended and Floyd and Naanee hurt, Ajirotutu is a valuable player.  He had 4 catches 111 yards and 2 TDs, proving my point that no matter who gets the chance to play with Rivers has success.  They have a BYE this week but if everyone is still injured use him.
Bye Week

Jason Snelling (RB) - Turner is healthy, but Snelling continues to get about 20% of the carries and has 9 catches through the last two weeks.  So if your in a PPR league Snelling isn't an awful play.  He could steal a TD here and there, and if Turner does get hurt Snelling becomes a must start each week.
6 catches 56 yards 1td

Good For A Week
Mike Goodson (RB) - Jonathan Stewart started for injured DeAngelo Williams but suffered a concussion last week and now Mike Goodson will most likely get a start.  Yes the Panthers defense sucks, but they go up against a Bucs team that is 30th against the run.  Goodson has playmaker ability so he has a good chance for success here.
23 carries for 100 yards 3 catches

Arizona Cardinals (DEF) - The Cards are at home against the Seahawks and we all saw what Charlie Whitehurst did against the Giants.  NOTHING.  The Seahawks are really struggling and look awful right now.  The Cards force turnovers and usually turn them into to TDs.  If available use them if you can.

Players to Watch
Jacoby Ford (WR) - This 5-10 rookie out of Clemson made some noise for the Raiders, helping them beat the Chiefs.  With Luis Murphy and Zach Miller out, Jason Campbell has found his go to guy. The little guy had 6 catches for 148 yards and had 4 kick returns for 158 yards including a 94 yard TD.  He can be valuable to many teams as he can get it done through the air and on kickoffs.
Bye Week

Randy McMichael (TE) - Gates missed last week and McMichael stepped in and had 2 catches that both went for TDs. Like i said about Ajirotutu, if you play in Rivers offense you will put up numbers. They have a BYE but if Gates is still out McMichael is worth the start.
Bye Week

Joel Dreessen (TE) - If Owen Daniels misses another game, Dreessen gets the start again.  He had a team high 8 targets last week.
2 catches for 24 yards

Donald Brown (RB) - Finally was able to play all four quarters against the Eagles, he carried the ball 15 times and gained 50 yards.  If Addai and Hart are still hurt before Sunday, play Donald Brown.
12 carries for 50 yards
