Amazing it is already Week 10 in fantasy football and with a lot of teams on byes, key pickups are crucial.  Let's take a look at who makes cut for this week's games.

Mark Sanchez:  Yeah him again.  The last memory we have of Sanchez is his horrific play in his last two seasons with the New York Jets that got him run out of town.  However he took a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles and played flawlessly in the preseason.  Than Nick Foles suffers a broken clavicle last Sunday and Sanchez comes off the bench to toss two touchdowns in helping the Eagles beat the Houston Texas.  Head coach Chip Kelly said that Sanchez has full reign of the offense and things will not be scaled back.  With a ton weapons at his disposal, Sanchez is worth the add on that aspect alone.  Why not?

Adrian Peterson:  Peterson is fresh off pleading to a misdemeanor in the child abuse case that got him suspended for pretty much the entire season to this point.  It is now up to the league to determine when he does return to action but already widespread reports indicate Peterson be back on the field soon enough.  If you can look past the heinous actions he did in the case (very tough to do), Peterson obviously is a potential game-changing addition this late. 

Bobby Rainey/Chris Simms:  Doug Martin is now officially done as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting running back and deservedly so.  Sims will make his debut this week and his speed is well worth a look.  In addition, Rainey had a nice game in Week 9 and generally has been solid for the Buc's.  Could be a timeshare deal on the way in Week 10 however which would siphon numbers from each.

Tre Mason:  Another week and another new starting running back for the Cleveland Browns.  West led the team in rushing attempts in Week 9 and clearly has now passed the inconsistent Ben Tate in the hierarchy.  Tough matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals this week though so don't go overboard.

Martavis Bryant:  Ever since Bryant has moved into the starting lineup, the Steelers and especially QB Ben Roethlisberger have exploded with video-game numbers.  The super-athletic kid has a nose for the end zone and has prime value especially in standard leagues.

Kenny Britt:  It looks like Britt has found some new life as the new number 1 wideout in the team's offense.  Britt has been known to find the end zone at a high rate so those in standard leagues should absolutely take a look.

Dallas Cowboys:  The Cowboys defense has struggled the last two weeks as the offense has kept them on the field for long stretches without QB Tony Romo.  However Romo will return this week and they get a woeful Jacksonville Jaguars offense being led by rookie QB Blake Bortles.
