If you don’t have an elite option, there are plenty of capable pass catchers with great Week 10 matchups. Be sure to check out my weekly waiver wire article if you are in need of a new player at the position.
You should target players who have a good chance to score a touchdown and get a lot of looks from their respective quarterbacks, when considering who to start at wide receiver.
Here are some of my favorite players in this week’s rankings:
Chris Godwin is the No. 2 wide receiver in fantasy football, trailing only Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammate Mike Evans. I have Godwin as my top option for Week 10 as the Buccaneers face the Arizona Cardinals, a defense allowing the 10th-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers.
Godwin has cooled off a bit since his stretch of averaging at least 125 receiving yards and scoring four times in three games, but remains an elite WR1 down the stretch. He has turned out to be one of the best value picks from fantasy football drafts.
New Orleans Saints star Michael Thomas has also been dominant this season. Thomas leads the league with 875 yards and 73 catches this season. He is my No. 2 option in Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons, a unit tied for allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers.
Keenan Allen has had a very disappointing 2019 campaign by his standards. The Los Angeles Chargers star ranks 13th in receiving yards for wide receivers, but has just three touchdowns. I have Allen as my No. 13 option at the position in Week 10.
The Chargers will face the Oakland Raiders, a unit allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers. Allen should be able to put up low-end WR1/high-end WR2 numbers in this matchup.
Golden Tate made one of the best catches of the season in Week 9. He is my No. 19 option at wide receiver in Week 10. The New York Giants face the New York Jets, a unit allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers. Tate has just one score this season, but should be a great WR2 option against this beatable secondary. I expect at least six catches and 80 receiving yards from the veteran pass catcher.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley is my No. 22 option in Week 10. Ridley has four touchdowns this season, but hasn’t scored since Week 6. He hauled in four catches for 70 yards in Week 8 before a Week 9 bye.
I’m expecting Ridley to be highly-involved in the Falcons’ game plan in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are allowing the ninth-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers. Ridley should be a solid WR2/WR3 play this week with a floor of at least 70 receiving yards and has a great chance to score a touchdown.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Zach Pascal will have to step up after the team lost T.Y. Hilton to a calf injury. I have Pascal as my No. 29 option for Week 10. He can be used as a bye week fill in WR3 against the Miami Dolphins. Pascal has three touchdowns in his last three games. The Dolphins are allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to wide receivers. Pascal might not post huge numbers, but he should log at least 50 receiving yards and has a chance to score against the Dolphins.
