Top 75 wide receiver standard rankings for Week 10 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best wide receivers going in Week 10 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Now that Patrick Mahomes is starting for sure and Malcolm Butler is out, I’ve moved Tyreek Hill to WR2. James Bradberry’s groin injury should help Davante Adams out even if Bradberry ends up playing, so Adams scoots up to WR4 in standard and WR7 in PPR. Amari Cooper’s lingering injuries have me a little worried despite the positive matchup, but he still sticks as a Top-10 receiver. Golden Tate gets a good boost with Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard out. I’ve moved him to WR19 in standard and WR17 in PPR.

You may be scraping for that fourth wide receiver this week, as we have six byes to maneuver through. Our rankings below should help you find some firm ground to start your good wide receiver hunting as you make your push for the fantasy playoffs.

Bye Weeks

Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington

WRs on bye: Courtland Sutton, DeAndre Hopkins, Kenny Stills, D.J. Chark, Dede Westbrook, Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Terry McLaurin

Injury Report

Adam Thielen: Thielen doesn’t have a timetable to return from his hamstring injury and after aggravating it last week during the game, the team will likely be extra cautious with him. Stefon Diggs gets the biggest bump, but Kyle Rudolph, Bisi Johnson, Laquon Treadwell and Irv Smith Jr. also should see some extra targets.

Brandin Cooks: Cooks has a history of concussions so he’s visiting multiple doctors to get a handle on his situation. At the moment, it doesn’t look like he will play this week. Josh Reynolds would take his spot and be worth an add in most leagues.

T.Y. Hilton: Hilton’s calf injury could keep him out up to a month, so this week doesn’t look great. Zach Pascal has shown the most upside outside of Hilton and will remain the top fantasy play until he returns.

Parris Campbell: Campbell fractured his hand and will miss some time. His absence along with Hilton’s will help concentrate work for Zach Pascal in a good matchup this week.

A.J. Green: Before the bye, Green said he wanted to play against the Ravens in Week 10. As long as he gets in a full set of practices this week, he should be ready to go.

Amari Cooper: Cooper tweaked his knee a couple of times on Monday night against the Giants but still managed a good fantasy night. He may get some rest but the expectation at this point is that he’ll go against the Vikings.

Sterling Shepard: Shepard had a setback in his concussion recovery, which could mean another long delay until he is ready to get back on the field. Expect Golden Tate and Darius Slayton to continue leading the way at wide receiver.

Preston Williams: Williams will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury. DeVante Parker should see the bulk of wide receiver targets moving forward while Mike Gesicki could continue to take a step up in opportunity and production.

Josh Gordon: Now with Seattle, Gordon passed his physical and should be able to practice this week in preparation for a Monday night tilt against the 49ers.

WR Ranking Tiers

Tier 1

Michael Thomas dominated with Teddy Bridgewater under center, but he’ll likely dominate a little bit more with Drew Brees back. He gets the Falcons awful pass defense in the home dome this week.

Tyreek Hill gets a boost in standard leagues due to his insane 17.5 yards per catch. The Titans have a quality pass defense, but Hill is on another level with his game-breaking speed.

Mike Evans may have some trouble with Patrick Peterson, but he’s been dominant of late, and Peterson is not yet back to his old self.

Stefon Diggs doesn’t disappoint when he sees big targets. With Adam Thielen out and the Cowboys passing offense putting up points this season, I expect Diggs to go off in Dallas.

Tier 2

I’d put Davante Adams into the first tier usually, but I’d like to see him put up a dominant game before giving him the edge over a cornerback like James Bradberry, who has played fantastic defense this year.

Tier 2 is somewhat perilous, as Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones get a tough Bears defense on the road, and Odell Beckham Jr. continues to draw one of the more difficult wide receiver schedules.

Mike Williams is due some touchdown regression to the mean, as he hasn’t found the end zone once this season compared to ten touchdowns last year. The Raiders’ defense is primed to help him out.

Tier 3

Emmanuel Sanders looked great last Thursday against the Cardinals and now he gets a matchup that Mike Evans dominated on Sunday. The 49ers may not pass as much as we’d like, but they should need to air it out more against the Seahawks.

We haven’t seen Calvin Ridley fully take advantage of Mohamed Sanu’s absence but he was close against Seattle and should see easier coverage with Marcus Lattimore on Julio Jones this week.

It’s yet to be seen just how much of an impact Josh Gordon will have on D.K. Metcalf’s usage but Metcalf looked great last week and Gordon will have had just one week of practice with Seattle, so I’m playing Metcalf as I normally would in a tough matchup with the 49ers.

WR Streamers

Zach Pascal will continue to see good targets with T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell out this week. He also will get a great matchup with the Dolphins, who have lost their top two defensive backs to a trade and injury. Chester Rogers also may be worth a look out of the slot as well.

Devante Parker should see his target numbers go up after Preston Williams suffered a season ending injury last week. He’s put up good touchdown numbers but now he be able to up his receptions and yardage moving forward.
