I'm going to be honest: I have no idea what the Colts are doing. I'm not sure anyone does, really. Jim Irsay seems to think he does, but I'm skeptical. 

The Colts fired coach Frank Reich Monday, replacing him with Jeff Saturday, whose "Coaching Career" subsection on Wikipedia lists two things: Saturday's 20-16 record in three seasons at the Hebron Christian Academy in Dacula, Georgia, and his hiring as the Colts head coach. The Colts don't have anyone on staff with NFL play calling experience -- they fired offensive coordinator Marcus Brady last week, so Saturday spent Monday interviewing the coaches on staff to figure out who will be handling playcalling this week. 

This sure sounds like a disaster in the making. The Colts offensive line has struggled for much of the season and they're starting a sixth-round pick at quarterback who, frankly, looked overwhelmed in Week 9. Their best offensive player has a lingering ankle injury and they just fell to 3-5-1, so it's fair to wonder if they're just going in for a phantom tank. 

I mean, look, maybe it'll work out. Maybe Saturday is a preternaturally charismatic leader who will be able to turn this team around. Weirder things have happened -- though, admittedly, I'm having a hard time coming up with an example of that. Ideally, you'll avoid the Colts offense in your Fantasy lineups this week, and maybe we'll end up being pleasantly surprised by what they roll out there this week. 

But probably not. Expectations should be and (rightly) are very low.

➕Top Week 10 Waiver Wire Targets

Week 10 isn't the greatest week for if you're looking to make it rain FAB bucks. There's no obvious must-have running back. The quarterback options are mediocre at best, and the wide receivers aren't much better, on the whole. What we do have, however, are potentially multiple must-start tight ends available right now. If you need a tight end, the first thing you need to do is make sure Pat Freiermuth isn't out there on your wire -- he's available in 25% of CBS Fantasy leagues right now. Freiermuth has at least seven targets in every game Kenny Pickett has played except for one -- the one he left due to a concussion. He's a top-seven TE for me for Week 10, and he's top-eight for the rest of the season. 

For the other two tight ends worth adding, keep reading. Here are Jamey Eisenberg's top targets on waivers for Week 10:

Jamey Eisenberg's top targets

  1. Darnell Mooney, WR, Bears (65%) -- Mooney's target share is up to 29%, and if he can keep it there, he'll remain worth using even in Chicago's low-volume passing game. We'll see what it looks like as Chase Claypool continues to be integrated in the offense, but Mooney's current usage makes him a viable WR3. 
  2. Greg Dulcich, TE, Broncos (49%) -- It's hard to ask for a better start to your career than Dulcich has had so far. He has at least 11 PPR points in each of his first three games and saw his playing time spike to 80% in Week 8. Coming out of the bye, he figures to remain a big part of the Broncos passing game moving forward, and he's a top-eight TE this week for me. 
  3. Cade Otton, TE, Buccaneers (17%) -- Otton has at least five targets in three straight games while playing at least 81% of the snaps in each. He had something of a breakout game in Week 9 with five catches for 68 yards and a touchdown, and we'll see if he's earned Tom Brady's trust. He could be a starter down the stretch. 
  4. Jordan Wilkins, RB, Colts (1%) -- Wilkins played 31% of the snaps in his season debut in Week 9, and with Jonathan Taylor dealing with an ankle injury and Deon Jackson leaving Sunday's game briefly to get his knee checked out, Wilkins could be in line for a significant role this week. 
  5. Chuba Hubbard, RB, Panthers (60%) -- Before leaving Week 7's game with an injury, Hubbard was serving as the lead back for the Panthers. I think Foreman's big Week 8 probably shifted that balance a bit, but Hubbard should still be a big part of the backfield there -- Foreman played just 43% of the snaps in Week 9 despite Hubbard's absence.
