Nov. 7 (UPI) -- The fantasy football season is headed down the stretch and you need to bulk up your squad. Here are my top waiver wire additions for Week 10.

After watching 12 teams take bye weeks in Week 8 and Week 9, most teams have their full complement of players back. But that doesn't mean you should look away from the waiver wire. This is the point in the season where a late-season acquisition can really put you over the top. You should also be aware of that for your opponent this week and potential playoff foes.

Play some defense if you have to, even if you don't need a particular player, it could be smart to pick them up and and stash them on your bench.

Here are the players I'm targeting to add on my Week 10 waiver wire and some of the players I'm willing to drop.


QB | Josh McCown, Ryan Fitzpatrick; RB | Matt Forte, Dion Lewis, Thomas Rawls; WR | Robert Woods, Curtis Samuel, Dede Westbrook, Marquise Goodwin; TE | Greg Olsen; D/ST | Chicago Bears; K | Marshall Koehn


QB | Paxton Lynch, Blake Bortles; RB | Danny Woodhead, Devontae Booker; WR | Martavis Bryant, Terrance Williams, Dontrelle Inman; TE | Stephen Anderson; D/ST | Detroit Lions


QB | Andy Dalton; RB | Eddie Lacy, LeGarrette Blount; WR | Terrelle Pryor; TE | Jason Witten


Blake Bortles began the 2017 season fighting for a job. Now the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback is playing well in November, leading a 5-3 team into Week 10. And you could do much worse on your fantasy football team. Bortles only has one game with multiple touchdown passes this season but he has been efficient as of late. Last week against the Cincinnati Bengals, he completed 63.2 percent of his throws for 259 yards and a score. He completed 69 percent of his throws for 330 yards in Week 7 and 65 percent of his throws for 241 yards in Week 6. A competent running game has made Bortles a stream-worthy play late in the season, especially with the Jaguars hosting the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10, a defense ranked No. 19 in the NFL in yards allowed.


What we needed to see in the Seattle Seahawks backfield was clarity. Now we might have it. Thomas Rawls could start Week 10 after Eddie Lacy went down in Week 9 to a groin injury. Lacy also didn't practice on Monday for the Seahawks, lifting Rawls' stock. Rawls could end up being an RB2 steal, especially with the Seahawks playing on a short week.


Robert Woods had another great showing on Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 51-17 win against the New York Giants. The Rams wide receiver pulled in four catches for 70 yards and two scores in the win. He continues to be involved in this offense and benefit from the emergence of Jared Goff. Woods has seen at least five targets in six consecutive games and in seven of the Rams' eight games overall. He is a more consistent option than Sammy Watkins and will be a high-end WR3 if he continues to find the end zone.


If Greg Olsen hasn't been picked up in your league yet, make sure to grab him. The Carolina Panthers' veteran tight end hasn't played since Week 2 after suffering a broken foot. Although he won't play this week, he is eligible to return to the Panthers in Week 12. After Kelvin Benjamin's departure, Olsen should earn even more looks than before from Cam Newton. He would be a steal for your fantasy football squad in any format if he returns to his typical production this late in the season.
