It's never too late to turn around your season. And sometimes, even the smallest of fantasy football moves can make the biggest difference.

Here are the top waiver wire pickups for fantasy football heading into Week 10 (pending Monday night's game).

Week 10 Waiver Wire

Note: Only players rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! fantasy football leagues are eligible for this list.

5. Logan Thomas, TE, Washington Football Team (53% Rostered)

Logan Thomas technically isn't eligible for this list, but it's close enough to warrant an exception. Thomas was the TE3 in PPR scoring last year, posting 176.62 points. He was off to a solid start this year, too, recording at least 9.5 PPR points in each of his first three games. He then left Week 4 early due to injury and hasn't seen the field since. He has legit top-five upside the rest of the way assuming he's healthy, so go grab him if you're in need of a tight end.

4. Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Cleveland Browns (13% Rostered)

Donovan Peoples-Jones recorded his third straight game with at least 70 yards receiving. He also has three touchdowns across his last three appearances. With Odell Beckham Jr. gone, you have to think his role will only continue to expand. Still, DPJ is a boom-or-bust option, so it's hard to trust him on a weekly basis. But he's a high-upside player to stash on your bench, especially in 12-team leagues.

3. Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, New England Patriots (6% Rostered)

This one is pretty much entirely tied to Damien Harris' health. Harris had to leave with a head injury after a quiet day. Rhamondre Stevenson also left with a head issue, but he could be in for some serious usage if he's able to suit up and Harris is sidelined. We got a taste of what he's capable of on Sunday, recording 106 yards from scrimmage on 12 touches this week. Assuming he can go, Stevenson would be in the RB2 conversation if Harris is sidelined.

2. Jordan Howard, RB, Philadelphia Eagles (13% Rostered)

Jordan Howard always seems to work his way into the fantasy conversation. And against all odds, he's somehow done it again. In the two weeks since Miles Sanders went down, Howard has turned 29 carries into 128 yards and 3 touchdowns. Philadelphia seems committed to making Howard their early-down workhorse, and he should be in the FLEX conversation until Sanders returns to action.

1. Rashod Bateman, WR, Baltimore Ravens (36% Rostered)

Coming off the Week 8 bye, the Baltimore Ravens clearly prioritized getting Rashod Bateman the ball. He saw a season-high 8 targets, turning that into 5 receptions for 52 yards. Bateman is clearly the No. 3 option on the suddenly high-flying Ravens' passing attack, and the first-round pick's role should only continue to grow as the season continues. He's looking like a solid WR3 option the rest of the way.
