Best available D/STs on the Week 10 waiver wire

Looking for help at D/ST? We take a look at five team units widely available in Yahoo! leagues.

There are a few D/STs widely available that either have good matchups heading into Week 10, or had successful Week 9 performances, or could benefit from an injury. With that in mind, here are five D/STs with under 50% rostership in traditional fantasy football leagues that managers can consider picking up for Week 10.

Philadelphia Eagles (47 percent)

Next up — @NYG, @CLE, SEA, @GB, NO

Daniel Jones managed to not turn the ball over last week, but was sacked five times. The Eagles put up nine D/ST points on them in Week 7 when they sacked Jones three times, recovered two fumbles and and had one interception.

New Orleans Saints (46 percent)

Next up — SF, ATL, @DEN, @ATL, @PHI

The 49ers will again have Nick Mullens at quarterback and that spells good things for the defense. We just saw the Saints stomp Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, so Mullens shouldn’t be that big of a test. Coach Shanahan is an offensive genius, but he’s just down too many players right now.

Green Bay Packers (37 percent)

Next up — JAX, @IND, CHI, PHI, @DET

The Packers get to face Jake Luton and the Jaguars this week. Their defense has been poor this season, but Luton’s offense was mostly a single deep touchdown to D.J. Chark in his debut. Aaron Rodgers and company should be able to get a lead in this one and then sit back and let Luton make mistakes.

Minnesota Vikings (23 percent)

Next up — @CHI, DAL, CAR, JAX, @TB

Nick Foles and this Bears offense is just plain bad. The Vikings defense has been bad as well, but Foles doesn’t have the personnel or the offensive game planto do much about it this week.

Detroit Lions (2 percent)

Next up — WSH, @CAR, HOU, @CHI, GB

Alex Smith managed to dink and dunk his way to good yardage in relief of Kyle Allen last week, but he threw three interceptions and the team lost two fumbles in their loss to a bad Giants team. The Lions defense is awful, but if you’re in a pinch, targeting Smith seems like a good idea this week.
