Olamide Zaccheaus: Early waiver wire option in Week 10

Olamide Zaccheaus stood out in Sunday’s contest as a potential early waiver wire option in Week 10.

Plenty of fantasy managers had their eyes on Russell Gage to pick up the slack when Calvin Ridley was ruled out for the Atlanta Falcons’ Week 9 contest against the Denver Broncos. Olamide Zaccheaus surprisingly stole the show to lead Atlanta’s receiving corps though and could be a desirable waiver wire target ahead of Week 10. If you need help at wide receiver in your season-long league Zaccheaus could be one of the better options available.

Zaccheaus caught four passes for 103 yards and a score against Denver in a breakout performance. He was targeted six times and should have significant upside given that the Falcons entered Week 9 leading the NFL in passing yards. Zaccheaus is widely available in fantasy leagues and is only rostered in 0.3 percent of ESPN leagues. He could be worth taking a flier on in deeper leagues, but it’s unlikely that he’ll produce like this again with Ridley back in the fold.

Up next — Bye, Saints, Raiders, Saints
