Week 10 of the NFL season has a few teams on bye, so there are plenty of fantasy owners without the services of guys like Kyle Rudolph or one of the Ravens' trio of up-and-comers. Fear not, fantasy friends, there are three guys that should still be available to grab on your waiver wire. Let's take a look at this week's deep sleepers. 




3. Nick Vannett - Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams

Vannett (available in 96 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues) is coming off a season-best performance last week against the Los Angeles Chargers, grabbing six receptions on eight targets for 52 yards and a touchdown. In Week 10, he'll look to do it once again, but this time against the team from the other side of L.A. For what it's worth, the Rams are allowing the fifth-most targets (8.1) per game to the tight end position, and Vannett's second-best performance of the season (three catches for 43 yards) came against these same Rams.

2. Ricky Seals-Jones - Arizona Cardinals at Kansas City Chiefs

RSJ (available in 84 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues) has a decent matchup against the Chiefs, who are allowing the seventh-most FanDuel fantasy points to opposing tight ends. The play on RSJ is all about opportunity here as the Chiefs will undoubtedly hang a ton of points on the board, and the Cardinals will have no choice but to open up the "air-it-out" portion of the playbook. As a result, we should see rookie quarterback Josh Rosen look to find RSJ  a number of times over the middle. 

1. Jesse James - Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Carolina Panthers

Hurry, the Steelers play tonight! James (available in 90 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues) has only three targets in each of the last two games, but he did see seven of them in a glorious matchup in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals. It should be worth noting, the Panthers allow the most FD fantasy points to the TE position, so it's quite possible that James schemes his way into the end zone tonight.
