Charles has added fantasy value; Rosenfels could be an asset

Here's a quick look at 10 fantasy players to target off the waiver wire heading into Week 10.

Greg Camarillo, WR, Miami: He might not be the most well-known wideout in the league but Camarillo has made an impact for fantasy owners this season. After a solid performance against the Broncos, he is worth a roster spot in leagues with 12-plus teams. He'll face the Seahawks and their vulnerable pass defense in Week 10.

Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City: The rookie was very impressive in his first significant action as a pro, rushing for 106 yards on 18 carries against the Buccaneers. The Chiefs lost Kolby Smith for the season and will be without Larry Johnson (suspension) in Week 10, so Charles will be one of the hottest names on the waiver wire in all formats.

Week 9 statistics:
Att: 18

Yards: 106

TDs: 0

Daunte Culpepper, QB, Detroit: Remember him? With Dan Orlovsky's status uncertain due to a sprained thumb, Culpepper could be taking over the Lions offense sooner than later. These winless cats will be forced to throw a lot when they inevitably fall behind in games, so Culpepper will have a chance to put up some numbers against certain opponents.

Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore: Don't look now, but Flacco has put together two consecutive notable starts. He accounted for two touchdowns in a win over the Raiders and had 248 passing yards and two more scores in a win over the Browns. If you need a quarterback in Week 10, Flacco is well worth a look against the Texans.

Shaun Hill, QB, San Francisco: The fact that J.T. O'Sullivan had even a smidgen of value this season proves that any quarterback starting in Mike Martz's offense can be a relevant option. Hill, who showed flashes of potential in Week 9, takes over for Martz and the Niners and faces some very favorable opponents in the weeks to come.

Panthers defense: Carolina was on a bye in Week 9, so countless fantasy leaguers were forced to release the Panthers' defense. The unit is available in over 40 percent of leagues on NFL.com. But with a matchup against the Raiders and their dismal offense next on the slate, the Panthers will be a very valuable fantasy option.

Brady Quinn, QB, Cleveland: The Browns have promoted Quinn to the starter's role, replacing the inconsistent Derek Anderson, so his fantasy value is on the rise. Next on the slate is a Thursday night contest against the Broncos, who field one of the leagues worst defenses. Quinn is still a free agent in close to 90 percent of NFL.com leagues, so add him now.

Ray Rice, RB, Baltimore: Rice had a monster performance in the absence of Willis McGahee, who was active but sat the entire game against the Browns with an ankle injury. The rookie caught three passes and totaled 176 scrimmage yards in a 37-27 win. Even if McGahee comes back next week, Rice has still established himself as a tremendous handcuff in all formats.

Sage Rosenfels, QB, Houston: Subbing for an injured Matt Schaub (knee), Rosenfels threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns against the Vikings. Reports indicate that Schaub is out several weeks, so Rosenfels is well worth a roster spot in all leagues. Because of the number of injured quarterbacks around the league, Rosenfels will be starting for a lot of fantasy teams in Week 10.

Ryan Torain, RB, Denver: The Broncos have placed Michael Pittman (neck) and Andre Hall (ankle, wrist) on injured reserve, so Torain's value is skyrocketing in fantasy land. He had only 1 yard on three carries in his regular-season debut, but going forward the rookie has the best chance to have a featured role for coach Mike Shanahan.
