Who said the fantasy football free agent pool gets thinner as the season goes on?

While it's still hard to find elite talent on the waiver wire, the ebbs and flows of injuries, role changes and NFL schedules creates new opportunities for players each week.

That's certainly the case in Week 10, as several players -- and one defensive unit -- are available as immediate plug-and-play options for your lineup.

Here are our fantasy football waiver wire adds for Week 10.

QUARTERBACK

Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans (owned in 18 percent of Yahoo! leagues): We're back on the Tannehill train this week. He thrived in a tough matchup with 331 passing yards in Carolina on Sunday, and gets a home date with a Kansas City Chiefs defense that's allowed six passing touchdowns over the past two weeks. Tennessee seems committed to throwing with Tannehill under center, making him a great high-floor streamer.

Other quarterbacks to target: Jacoby Brissett (IND), Daniel Jones (NYG), Sam Darnold (NYJ)

RUNNING BACK

Ronald Jones II, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (42 percent owned): Buccaneers running backs have never been a fantasy gold mine, but Tampa Bay seems committed to Jones after he tallied 82 total yards and a touchdown in Week 10. He gets a plus matchup at home against the Arizona Cardinals and is worth a pickup regardless of matchup as a starting NFL running back.

Other running backs to target: Kalen Ballage (MIA), Derrius Guice (WAS), Ty Montgomery (NYJ)

WIDE RECEIVER

Zach Pascal, Indianapolis Colts (22 percent owned): Guess which Colts receiver led the team in targets Sunday with T.Y. Hilton sidelined? That'd be Pascal, who also has three touchdowns in the two games Hilton has missed this season. Jacoby Brissett's injury is worth monitoring, but as long as Brissett is in and Hilton is out, Pascal is a solid FLEX play.

 

Other wide receivers to target: Chris Conley (JAX), DeVante Parker (MIA), Anthony Miller (CHI)

TIGHT END

Chris Herndon, New York Jets (30 percent owned): Herndon will make his debut soon. We swear. The Jets tight end is behind schedule as he recovers from a hamstring injury, but it seems like he was close to playing last Sunday. Once he's back on the field, he should see a decent share of targets in a Jets offense that will be playing from behind a lot.

Other tight ends to target: Jack Doyle (IND), Jared Cook (NO)

DEFENSE

Baltimore Ravens (49 percent owned): This is the beauty of the waiver wire. The Ravens are an elite defense with a grade-A Week 10 matchup (the putrid Cincinnati Bengals) but are owned in more than half of Yahoo! leagues after owners saw the undefeated New England Patriots on their Week 9 schedule. Put in your claim and hope for the best.

Other defenses to target: Rams (at PIT), Colts (vs. MIA)
