It's important to stay on top of the best waiver wire pickups in fantasy football every week. But sometimes you're stuck with a low waiver priority and miss out on the top options. Or maybe you find yourself in a deeper league with sharp players, which can leave the options on the waiver wire a lot less appealing than we tend see in standard leagues.

That's where these top fantasy football waiver wire sleepers for Week 10, owned in less than 30 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues, come into play.

1. Kalen Ballage, RB, Miami Dolphins (11% Owned)

With Mark Walton suspended, Kalen Ballage is the de facto No. 1 RB for the Miami Dolphins. That's not exactly an ideal offense to lead, but volume takes priority over just about anything else for running backs in fantasy football. Walton played at least 74 percent of the snaps in each of the last two games, which is 10 percentage points higher than Kenyan Drake played in any single game before being traded. With the depth chart even thinner now, Ballage could consistently see snaps into the 80 percent range. Walton also averaged 11.5 carries and five targets per game in those two, leaving both rushing and receiving work open for Ballage. He's a low-ceiling RB, but that workload will make him a viable starting option if you're in a pinch.

2. Ted Ginn Jr., WR, New Orleans Saints (6% Owned)

Ted Ginn Jr. didn't do much in Drew Brees' Week 8 return, but there's still plenty of reason to be optimistic about his outlook for the remainder of the season. He caught seven passes for 101 yards from Brees in Week 1, and while he was banged up for most of the 2018 season he did average 6.7 targets per game from Brees when healthy. The New Orleans Saints' schedule is also terrific for the next few weeks, taking on the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have both allowed top-three fantasy production to opposing wideouts, in Weeks 10 and 11. Ginn sits at WR32 in our Week 10 PPR fantasy football rankings.

3. A.J. Brown, WR, Tennessee Titans (19% Owned)

A.J. Brown played a season-high 69 percent of the Tennessee Titans' offensive snaps in Week 9, and his expanded playing time has become consistent, with at least 61 percent in three straight games. He's seen at least seven targets in two of those three games, averaging 11.0 PPR fantasy points per game. He's still a low-floor option while he's not an every-down player, but we saw his upside earlier this season when he had a 100-yard game on three receptions in Week 1 and another 94-yard, two-TD game on three receptions in Week 4. His ceiling is huge with an expanded role.
