With a number of teams on their bye week and Kansas Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins unlikely to play in Week 10, fantasy owners will certainly be scouring the waiver wire looking for a suitable replacement. There isn't much time until kickoff but fear not, fantasy friends, we've got you covered.
Here are three options that should be enough to hold you over in Week 10 and lead you into the winner's circle.
3. Terrelle Pryor - Buffalo Bills at New York Jets

Pryor (available in 98 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues) felt like he wasn't utilized enough with the Jets in his brief stint with the team, and now he'll be able to show them exactly what they were missing. The Bills quarterback carousel gets a new member this week as Matt Barkley will be under center, so that lends some optimism to the situation.
2. John Ross - Cincinnati Bengals vs. New Orleans Saints

With A.J. Green on the shelf for at least a couple of weeks, Ross (available in 84 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues) has a great opportunity to make a name for himself in this Bengals' offense. Unfortunately, he has already missed three games this season, but the team feels confident enough to put him on the field this week. The Saints are in a three-way tie for allowing the second-most plays (nine) of 40-plus yards this season, and Ross has a knack for hitting home-run plays because of that blazing speed.
1. Josh Doctston - Washington Redskins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Any time you get a chance to go against the Bucs' porous secondary, you have to take that chance. However, this matchup is even more glorified based on the fact that the Redskins will be missing wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson -- the latter of whom is out for the season. Look for Doctson (available in 90 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues) to post a respectable day through the air, and potentially hit on a deep ball for a touchdown. After all, the Bucs are allowing the second-most plays (36) of over 20-plus yards this season.
