NFL Week 10 WR-CB Matchup Report

Left WR vs Right CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDK / FD $CornerbackOppMatchup
DeAndre HopkinsARI$8000 / $8300Jalen RamseyLARSafe
It was his worst game of 2022 so far but he still had four catches for 36 yards and a touchdown against the Seahawks and should have had two if not for a penalty. Hopkins is just ridiculous, and he is the focal point of the Cardinals passing game. It is always exciting to see him go against a talent like Ramsey, although I don't expect this to be a full blanket situation. He has had some up and down games against Ramsey in their careers and while I could never sit Hopkins in a season long situation, I will look a different way in DFS games for Week 10.
Drake LondonATL$12300 / $10500Donte JacksonCARRisky
Really the only positive thing I can say here is that he had seven targets. It was another colossal disappointment for London, who had just three catches for 23 yards and even lost a fumble. The rookie season started out so promising, but as long as Marcus Mariota is under center, London belongs on waiver wires.
Stefon DiggsBUF$8300 / $9100Patrick PetersonMINSafe
At the time of writing we don't know who will be quarterbacking for the Bills but for me it doesn't matter. If it is Josh Allen I will be worried enough about his elbow that I won't be confident enough to start Diggs in DFS games, but of course he is in your weekly lineups. If Allen is forced to miss the game, I again am not confident enough to use him in DFS games, but even with a backup quarterback I still would trust him in your weekly lineups as he is just so damn talented and by far and away the most targeted receiver on the team.
DJ MooreCAR Rashad FentonATLRisky
The Panthers offense turned back into a pumpkin, P.J. Walker was benched at halftime, and although Baker Mayfield put up solid stats, the Bengals had already let their foot off the gas and it was all garbage time. The Panthers activated Sam Darnold so who knows who is going to be at quarterback. We do know this though, none of them are any good. I have the least confidence with Moore with Baker Mayfield because he just didn't throw to him early in the season. Right now Moore is a tough guy to play even in regular 12 team leagues, and I think I prefer Terrace Marshall in the Thursday showdown slate.
Darnell MooneyCHI$5500 / $6200Jeff OkudahDETSafe
While the Panthers offense turned into a pumpkin, the Bears offense actually keeps improving! Mooney had his first touchdown of the season in Week 9 and paired that with a season-high seven catches for 43 yards. Sure, the yardage total is disappointing, it is his lowest since Week 3, however the great reception total and touchdown makes it perfectly okay. Justin Fields is certainly ascending and that is good news for Mooney. He could be a cost saving wide receiver for a DFS GPP against the lowly Lions but mostly he is still just a startable guy in season long leagues.
Amari CooperCLE$6500 / $7800Xavien HowardMIAModerate
In one of his best games of the season before the bye, Cooper amassed five catches for 131 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals. I think Cooper would probably have just continued playing as he had three games out of four with 74 or more yards. I do think that was a fluke game by Jacoby Brissett and although the Dolphins secondary hasn’t been great this year, they are a long way from a unit to target. I will continue to start Cooper for the rest of the season in yearly leagues, but it is so hard to consider Browns receivers in DFS games.
CeeDee LambDAL$7000 / $7600Jaire AlexanderGBModerate
He has had a fine season, but it certainly hasn’t been what many hoped when they drafted Lamb in August. Lamb is yet to have a 100-yard game and has just three touchdowns to this point of the season. His volume remains heavy, and I expect Dallas to throw the ball more in the second half of the season. He is undoubtedly the top receiver on the team, and I can see his targets remaining in the 8-10+ range. Jaire Alexander has been a top-flight corner in his career, but not so much in 2022. I’m not saying he is a bum, but not someone I am actively avoiding this season. Lamb is a worthy option in DFS games this week and will always be someone to start in season long leagues.
Courtland SuttonDEN$5600 / $6200Kristian FultonTENModerate
Dear lord! For the first five weeks of the season, Sutton was the one guy you could still count on in this trash pile offense as he had almost six catches a game and over 80 yards per game. Well, he has a combined six catches for 50 yards in the last three and has fewer than five targets in two of those three. And it isn’t like the Chargers and Jaguars are the top secondaries in football. The only good news is the matchup this week against the Titans is a chef’s kiss! They have been terrible even though their numbers don’t look awful, but they have played the bottom feeding offenses in the NFL. I’m going to give Sutton one more start in Week 10 but if he puts up another sub-five fantasy point game in this one he will be dead to me for the rest of the season.
Kalif RaymondDET$4400 / $5300Jaylon JonesCHIRisky
After a couple good games in a row, Raymond flopped in a big way as he had just three catches for 17 yards against the Packers in a game he looked to be set up with injuries to the Lions receivers. The whole game was pretty gross offensively, but this week should be a little better against a Bears team that has been getting killed through the air lately. I am not saying that Raymond is some great shakes, but he might be a valid DFS GPP dart throw or flex play in Week 10 if you are dealing with byes and injuries.
Allen LazardGB#N/ATrevon DiggsDALSafe
The Packers receiving room wasn't great to start the year, and they've become the walking wounded with injuries all over the place. For the love of everything holy they could only manage nine points against the Lions! The only constant is Lazard when he is healthy. He led the team with four catches for 87 yards and a touchdown in Week 9, and he will certainly lead the team again this week. How many points they score remains to be seen, but with a tough game against Big D, Lazard is merely a season long target.
Phillip Dorsett IIHOU$3600 / $5200Adoree JacksonNYGRisky
The Texans actually came out of the gate with some energy last Thursday against the Eagles and Dorsett had an early long catch. Unfortunately, he only had two more grabs for the rest of the game. With Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins out, this Texans passing game is as toothless as my 90-year-old grandpa. The Giants secondary gives up a yards but not a lot of points and Dorsett remains nothing but a desperation flex play.
Michael Pittman Jr.IND$6200 / $6300Rock Ya-SinLVRisky
PLEASE BRING BACK Matt Ryan! Or at least go to Nick Foles! This offense under Sam Ehlinger is completely unwatchable and ineffective. Pittman had just three catches for 22 yards in Week 9 and there is no sign of improvement coming! The Colts do have an easy matchup this week against a putrid Raiders secondary, but I don't even know how much that will help. Once thought to be a top-30 receiver this season, Pittman has become a hold your nose and put him in your flex spot kind of guy.
Marvin Jones Jr.JAC$4300 / $5400Jaylen WatsonKCRisky
He outperformed Zay Jones, but the day was still really nothing to write home about. Jones did improve on his zero catch Week 8, but still five catches for 48 yards against one of the worst secondaries in Las Vegas instills little excitement in me. He has as many zero catch games (two) as he has games with 50 receiving yards. He will likely go nuts and drop 15-20 fantasy points once or twice more this season, but mostly he will finish under ten. The Jaguars are likely to be playing from behind a lot in this one, but I still don't like Jones as a fantasy option this week.
Kadarius ToneyKC$5000 / $5500Tyson CampbellJACRisky
Well I thought he would play more than he did for the Chiefs on Sunday night, but he had also been on the team for not even two weeks. He did catch both balls thrown at him for 12 yards, but at least he got out there and also was thrown to on the first play the Chiefs had. With another week under his belt, and a nice matchup against the Jaguars defense, my confidence is building in Toney and I really think he is going to be a difference maker down the stretch. I don't know that he will play a full complement of snaps so you might want to limit your usage to a season long team that has injury troubles, but I really do feel some big production is coming
Davante AdamsLV$8700 / $8500Stephon GilmoreINDSafe
For those who believed in him, he paid off big time with ten catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns against the Jaguars. A lot of it was in the first half, but you can't argue with that production. He does have some flops like Week 8 where he only had one catch, but he was also sick that week, and you know he isn't going to stay down long. It isn't the greatest matchup for the Raiders this week against a Colts secondary that is actually pretty decent, but Adams is still a no brainer in any fantasy format.
Joshua PalmerLAC#N/ACharvarious WardSFSafe
Mike Williams remains out, and to be honest I'd be shocked if Keenan Allen and his mystery hamstring suited up for this one. Palmer took full advantage of their absences last week and had eight catches for 106 yards including a beautiful catch that set up the game winning field goal against the Falcons. The 49ers pose a much tougher challenge on defense this week, but Palmer will again be the primary target for Justin Herbert. He is a must-start in season long games and will be the top Charger receiving option in the Sunday night DFS showdown slate.
Allen Robinson IILAR$4800 / $5700Trayvon MullenARIRisky
He gave us just enough for us to think about trusting him again, and then Robinson sucked again and now likely will never get off a fantasy bench. His three catches for 24 yards was his worst since Week 5 and more of what we had come to expect early on. He had just two catches for 23 yards back in Week 3 against Arizona, and right now I don't know how you can possibly trust Robinson unless you are really in a desperate spot.
Jaylen WaddleMIA$7600 / $8200Denzel WardCLESafe
He had five catches for 85 yards and a score against the Bears last Sunday and that is now three touchdowns in the last two weeks and four straight games with 85 or more receiving yards. The volume hasn't been what it was last year, but I don't think anyone expected that with Tyreek Hill coming to the team. He already has over 800 yards though and six touchdowns in nine games, and Waddle has become a must-start in season long leagues and a viable DFS consideration on any given week. There's a chance that Denzel Ward returns after the bye from his concussion, but he clearly won't be 100% and if he doesn't play that makes Waddle even more attractive. He should definitely be a part of some of your DFS roster builds whether it be GPPs or cash games.
Justin JeffersonMIN$8800 / $8600Tre'Davious WhiteBUFSafe
It should have come as a surprise to no one that Jefferson balled out in Week 9 against Washington as he had seven catches for 115 yards and a score. I'm rounding up his 98 yards from Week 8 to 100 to say that is now five straight games where he has gone over 100 receiving yards and six of eight for the year. The Bills secondary has been tough and should welcome back Tre'Davious White this week, but it is his first game back and the rest of the group has dealt with injury problems. I might shy away from Jefferson in DFS contests, but there is obviously never a reason to sit him in season long leagues.
Chris OlaveNO$6800 / $7500William JacksonPITSafe
It was another solid game on Monday night as he finished with six catches for 71 yards on nine targets which is pretty good considering how crappy the Saints offense looked. He is easily still the best receiver on the team, even with Jarvis Landry returning. You would like to see a couple more touchdowns, but he has had at least 50 receiving yards in every game but Week 1 and he has had five catches or more in five of eight games this season. He is a pretty decent mid-tier WR for DFS purposes and I can't find a reason to sit Olave in your season long leagues.
Darius SlaytonNYG$4600 / $5800Steven NelsonHOURisky
I mean, he’s been okay. After being a non-factor to open the season, Slayton has put together three pretty good games in the last four. He has 10+ fantasy points in those three games, but still only has more than six targets once all year. The Texans defense is much stronger against the pass than the run, so I expect a ton of Saquon Barkley in this one. Slayton is still a reasonable flex play, but no one that I am really excited about.
A.J. BrownPHI Kendall FullerWASSafe
He has five touchdowns in the last three weeks, and while he only has two 100-yard games on the season, Brown has been quite productive in 2022. The Commanders are one of the worst secondaries in the league, and the Eagles have one of the most potent offenses. With this matchup you have to have some exposure to it, and DeVonta Smith has been more disappointing than successful. Brown had five catches for 85 yards and a score against Washington back in Week 3 and I am expecting an even better game against them in Week 10. He is a no brainer in both season long and DFS games.
Diontae JohnsonPIT$5800 / $6600Marshon LattimoreNOModerate
What an epic disappointment! I thought Johnson would continue to get the volume and the catches and some scores for the Steelers even with a new quarterback. While the targets haven’t been awful, he hasn’t had more than five catches since Week 3. And only has had more than 42 yards once since then. Worst of all he doesn’t have a touchdown all season. The Saints secondary hasn’t been good, but the Steelers pass offense is worse. Johnson is still barely holding on to flex value and continues that trend in Week 10.
Deebo SamuelSF Asante SamuelLACSafe
He didn’t play the week before the team’s bye with a hamstring injury, but he should be good to go for this one. Things have changed since we saw Samuel last in that the 49ers traded for Christian McCaffrey. I know they both played in Week 7, but CMC was a small part of the game plan. I do think that the majority of Deebo’s running attempts are now toast as McCaffrey fills that role perfectly. Samuel has only a single 100-yard game this season, but I expect him to be more featured in the pass game for the rest of the year. The Chargers is allowing nearly two passing touchdowns per game, and Jimmy Garoppolo is playing well. Look for Samuel to have a strong game in Week 10.
DK MetcalfSEA Carlton DavisTBSafe
His yardage totals haven't been impressive as he has only gone over 50 yards four times, 80 yards twice, and 100 yards just once. However, Metcalf has five or more catches in six of nine games this season and has scored in back-to-back weeks. This week won't be an easy one against a tough Buccaneers secondary, but Geno Smith and the Seahawks gut it out every week. Given the low yardage totals this season, it is tough to put Metcalf into a DFS lineup, but on a showdown slate he is a great option with his ability to score.
Mike EvansTB Michael JacksonSEASafe
He was banged up during the game, but Evans still had 11 targets, although disappointed with just five catches and 40 yards. Some of that was self-induced, some was facing off with Jalen Ramsey. The Seahawks secondary won't be as tough, but the Buccaneers offense is just AWFUL. It took a last minute touchdown drive to even score 16 points against the Rams. He hasn't scored since Week 4 and I think it has long since gotten to the point of swearing off Buccaneer players for DFS purposes. However, like with Metcalf above, this is a showdown slate and Evans is the most talented and most targeted receiver on the team so if you can afford his salary he could give you a decent return.
Robert WoodsTEN$4900 / $5600Jaylen WatsonKCRisky
It is hard to do much as a receiver when the quarterback only completes five passes in a game, and Woods didn't catch either of his two targets. He hasn't topped 40 yards since Week 3 and he has just one touchdown all season. It really doesn't matter who the quarterback is this week, the matchup is tough and the offense is awful regardless.
Terry McLaurinWAS Darius SlayPHIModerate
The good news is that McLaurin is still being heavily targeted as he had five catches on nine targets for 56 yards. The bad news is that the offense still isn't very good. Taylor Heinicke still certainly gives the Commanders a much better passing attack and it is positive for McLaurin's fantasy value. He did have six catches for 102 yards back in Week 3 against the Eagles, and with a better QB, perhaps McLaurin can repeat that performance. The Eagles secondary is one of the best in the league, but they even gave up some plays to Houston last week, so I can certainly see the case for keeping McLaurin in your season long starting lineups.
Right WR vs Left CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDraftKings/FanDuelCornerbackOppMatchup
Robbie AndersonARI$3200 / $4900Troy HillLARRisky
HE CAUGHT A PASS!!!! However, the pass he caught cost him four yards and he also committed a penalty that washed out a touchdown. What an epic failure of a season for Anderson. That was his first catch since Week 5 and your fantasy platform should slap you across the face if you consider picking up Anderson.
Olamide ZaccheausATL Jaycee HornCARRisky
Are you really reading this considering Zaccheaus for any sort of Week 10 lineup? You aren't right? I know you are better than that. He has six catches and 60 yards in his last three weeks combined, and Zaccheaus should be firmly planted on your waiver wires!
Gabe DavisBUF$6400 / $6500Cameron DantzlerMINRisky
While I was not as high on him as others coming into the season, I never thought it would be this bad. Davis had just two catches for 33 yards against the Jets and now has just 18 catches in seven games this season. Ooooooof. He is the poster child for boom or bust receiver and this year even two of his booms weren't that big of booms. The Vikings secondary hasn't been great and Dantzler is banged up, but Davis is becoming very tough to start, especially with a questionable quarterback situation this week.
Terrace Marshall Jr.CAR Darren HallATLModerate
There is Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but you should just start to be remembering Terrace Marshall. The kid has been fairly impressive of late (for Panthers receivers standards) as he has seven catches for 140 yards and a touchdown in his last two weeks. P.J. Walker featured him, and now Baker Mayfield did as well. He gets a dynamite matchup against the Falcons on Thursday night and has become an attractive WR3/4 or flex play and my top option at wide receiver for Carolina in the DFS showdown slate.
Chase ClaypoolCHI$4800 / $5800Amani OruwariyeDETModerate
It was odd that the Bears traded away defenders but then traded for Claypool, but they clearly see something they like as he was targeted six times in his first game with the team despite being there for less than a week. Claypool has some talent as he had nine touchdowns as a rookie, he just had horrible quarterback play and was underutilized in Pittsburgh. I am not ready to crown him a fantasy king in Chicago, but again, you have to love the volume in his first game and the matchup this week and I think he is a viable guy to start in your season long leagues.
Donovan Peoples-JonesCLE$4300 / $5700Byron JonesMIAModerate
He continues to show his better-than-expected play as he finished with four catches for 81 yards last Monday night against the Bengals before the Browns bye. He still hasn’t scored a touchdown and the 81 yards are a season-high so it isn’t like Peoples-Jones is any great shakes for DFS games, but this is now four out of five games that he has topped 70 receiving yards and he has at least four catches and 50 yards in five straight so keep him plugged into your flex until further notice.
Michael GallupDAL$4900 / $5700Rasul DouglasGBRisky
Starting a season with an injury is never ideal, but it just hasn’t gtten any better for Gallup since he has returned. Sadly, he has scored just once in five games and his four catches and 49 yards against the Bears before the bye were season highs. He is averaging fewer than five targets a game and has a game with no catches. Green Bay is allowing just under 175 passing yards per game this season and eight total passing touchdowns in eight weeks. I could see using Gallup as a flex, but I am hoping that you have better options on your team as my confidence in him is at an all-time low.
KJ HamlerDEN$3800 / $5000Terrance MitchellTENRisky
OK, he does have more than 40 receiving yards in three of the last five weeks, but is that something to get excited about? Also, he hasn’t had more than two catches in a game and that has only happened twice in seven games this season. Plop in there that he hasn’t scored yet this year and the Broncos offense is as bad as a full diaper (number two of course), and that will tell you how little you should be interested in K.J. Hamler.
Tom KennedyDET$3200 / $4800Kindle VildorCHIRisky
This is assuming that Josh Reynolds isn't healthy enough to play this week, and to be honest I am not sure if it matters if it is Kennedy or Reynolds, because I don't expect either to produce. The Bears secondary is certainly vulnerable, but the Lions offense has been stuck in neutral for most of the last month or more and while this game is likely to be close, I don't expect much through the air to any one player besides Amon-Ra St. Brown. Leave all other Lions receivers on your bench or waiver wire.
Sammy WatkinsGB$4000 / $5100Anthony BrownDALRisky
The Packers offense is completely broken, and now Romeo Doubs is going to miss some games. Wow, the Green Bay offense is bad, and the passing game is the biggest culprit. Watkins, Cobb, Watson, Toure, it doesn't really matter. Allen Lazard is the only guy on the team that belongs on fantasy rosters right now.
Chris MooreHOU$3900 / $5300Fabian MoreauNYGModerate
It is funny because watching the game I sure thought that Moore had more than four catches for 43 yards. It seemed like he was all over the field and making plays. Maybe it was the touchdown, but at the end of the day, the stats are fairly pedestrian. We are in Week 10 and between injuries, four teams on bye, and the waiver wire picked over, there isn’t always a lot to work with. The Texans and Davis Mills have regressed this season and Moore is nothing more than a flex play if you are in bad shape.
Alec PierceIND$4100 / $5500Anthony AverettLVRisky
The Colts offense is going nowhere fast, and while Pierce was kind of keeping it together with at least three catches a game, he fell to just one grab for 23 yards. Even against the Raiders it is hard to trust a single Colts pass catcher For Week 10 and beyond.
Zay JonesJAC$4400 / $5500Chris LammonsKCRisky
The ho hum play continues for Jones as he hasn't scored since Week 3 and that's the same week he last went over 55 yards. His volume has decreased and the Jaguars passing game is incredibly inconsistent from week to week. Perhaps if Evan Engram is forced to miss some time Jones might see a few more targets but right now he is impossible to trust even in a good matchup and should be left on waiver wires.
Mack HollinsLV$4200 / $5500Brandon FacysonINDRisky
The Raiders putrid offense isn't firing enough for more than one guy to be fantasy relevant, and that guy is going to be Davante Adams. He had the huge game while Hollins had just two grabs for 17 yards. He has had a few games this season where he has gotten more than five targets, but mostly he is an afterthought from a fantasy perspective on a Raiders passing game that has fallen well short of expectations.
DeAndre CarterLAC#N/AJimmie WardSFModerate
No Mike Williams, no Keenan Allen, and Carter had a decent day with five catches on six targets for 53 yards. He hasn't scored since the opening week of the season, and has little to no true fantasy impact this season. Both guys are sure to miss this game again, but the matchup will be much tougher on Sunday night against the 49ers than it was against Atlanta. He is not someone I would trust in a weekly league, and honestly even in a showdown slate I don't love him. However, he probably is the number two option or maybe 2a with Gerald Everett so he could be worth a shot in a Sunday night GPP.
Van JeffersonLAR$3500 / $5100Marco WilsonARIRisky
He was targeted five times, but it might as well be Van Wilder out there for the Rams because Jefferson didn't catch a single pass. The Rams have only one player on the entire offense that is worth considering for fantasy purposes and that is Cooper Kupp obviously. Not Darrell Henderson, not Cam Akers, not Tyler Higbee, not Allen Robinson and not Van Jefferson. Until we see some sort of shift in the offense, Jefferson belongs on waiver wires.
Trent SherfieldMIA$3300 / $5100Greg NewsomeCLERisky
Three catches for 27 yards. Another effort from Sherfield that is not near the fantasy radar. He has more than three targets in a game just once in the last five and has only topped that number twice all season. It doesn'tt matter who the matchup is against, this guy is not someone to think about in fantasy football.
Adam ThielenMIN$5400 / $5900Dane JacksonBUFModerate
He made one nice play, and then the rest of the afternoon left much to be desired. 36 of his 67 yards came on one play and Thielen finished with three catches on seven targets against the lowly Commanders secondary. I didn't think it would happen so quickly, but I think T.J. Hockenson is going to eat into Thielen's role down the stretch here. I still do like the seven targets, but Hockenson had nine. Thielen is also dealing with a lingering knee issue and has scored just twice all year. He is still averaging almost seven targets a game so you can put him in your flex spot and hope for the best, but it doesn't seem like it is happening this season for Thielen in an impactful fantasy way.
Marquez CallawayNO$3600 / $5000Levi WallacePITRisky
It was another ho hum effort by the Saints offense as well as by Callaway who finihsed with just three catches for 24 yards on four targets. He has only scored once all season and has only broken 50 receiving yards once while topping out at three catches. He should remain on waiver wires for the rest of the season.
Marcus JohnsonNYG$3400 / $4800Derek StingleyBALRisky
Insert other crappy outside Giants receiver here. He had a season best six targets in Week 8 before the bye but came away with just one catch for three yards. The Giants offense is just weak throwing the ball and barely has any receivers that are fantasy relevant. Even with that uptick in targets, leave Johnson on waiver wires.
DeVonta SmithPHI Benjamin St. JusteWASSafe
Is it the matchup or is it momentum? We will find out this week because Smith has had fewer than 25 yards in the last two games and has topped 50 receiving yards just once in the last five weeks. However, he exploded for eight catches for 169 yards and a touchdown back in Week 3 against the Commanders. Was it just a good day? Or does Smith have their number? I don’t have enough confidence for him in DFS although he will be quite the bargain against a terrible secondary. I’m leaving him to just season long leagues, but if you like to roll the dice he could pay off in a big way.
George PickensPIT$5000 / $5600Paulson AdeboNOModerate
I mean we knew it wasn’t going to be a good day against arguably the best secondary in football in the Eagles before the Steelers bye, but I was still hoping for more than nothing. No catches on three targets, that was his line. It has been an up and down rookie season for Pickens with thankfully more ups than downs, but there is still a long way to go in his maturation. The Saints secondary continues to be beaten up injury wise and gets beaten in coverage fairly often. I still like Pickens as a flex play but man he comes with a lot of risk. You will probably either get between 12-15 fantasy points or between two and four points. Have fun with that!
Brandon AiyukSF Michael DavisLACSafe
Aiyuk has been on fire lately with 21 catches and three touchdowns in the last three weeks, while averaging 82 yards per game. He has also averaged nearly ten targets a game over that span. It will be interesting to see how the offense functions with the full complement of weapons now that Christian McCaffrey is well into the playbook and Deebo Samuel has returned. Aiyuk has been great at finding the open spot in the defense right now and I think he is a great option in both season long and DFS games.
Tyler LockettSEA Jamel DeanTBSafe
Like his teammate DK Metcalf, Lockett isn't lighting up the fantasy scoreboard with gaudy yardage totals as he has just three games all year over 75 yards, but he has sored in two straight and has four touchdowns in his last five week. he continues to be fairly consistent, even if the bar for where he has been performing has come down some. The Bucs aren't giving up a lot of yardage through the air, but they have given up 14 pass touchdowns in nine games so we have hope that one or both of Seattle's receivers can score. Not enough hope to use them in DFS games, but Lockett is secured as a weekly starter in your season long leagues.
Julio JonesTB Tariq WoolenSEARisky
Hey at least he got through two games healthy! That's about the extent of the positivity for Julio these days as he had just two catches for 28 yards on five targets against the Rams. I hope you have already dropped this guy if you were holding him as he is completely washed and so is this Tampa Bay offense. He gets a solid matchup against the Seahawks, but I wouldn't touch Julio with a ten foot pole.
Nick Westbrook-IkhineTEN$3500 / $5300Chris LammonsKCRisky
He was targted just once Sunday night and he didn't catch it. Again, Malik Willis is either not ready for this opportunity, or the Titans aren't allowing him any freedom to actually throw the ball. Whether it is Willis or Tannehill doesn't really matter as Westbrook-Ikhine is not a fantasy receiver.
Cam SimsWAS James BradberryPHIRisky
He had one catch for the fifth straight week, and broke his streak of two targets for four straight weeks when he had just one in Week 9. Oh, we don't need to talk about Sims anymore after those tidbits of info. He has just 58 receiving yards on the season.
Slot WR vs Slot CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDraftKings/FanDuelCornerbackOppMatchup
Cooper KuppLAR$9000 / $9200Byron MurphyARISafe
He is the only guy on the offense that can do anything, everyone knows it, the defense knows it, the guy selling beer knows it, and somehow Kupp just keeps on trucking. He had eight catches for 127 yards and another score in Week 9 against the Buccaneers and he is now over 800 yards on the season. There's not really much to say for Kupp except that he is really good, and he is the entire Rams offense. Until someone shuts him down, how do you not use him? He did have just four catches for 44 yards against the Cardinals back in Week 3, but it really is the only off game he had all season and with the current state of the Los Angeles pass game I can't see him being held down again. Fire up Kupp in all fantasy formats!
Tyreek HillMIA$9100 / $9000Martin EmersonCLESafe
Last week I said he would go over 1,000 yards and he did me one better by going over 1,100 yards in Week 9 as Hill had seven catches for 143 yards and a touchdown. He has been UNSTOPPABLE this season! That is now three of the last four where he has gone over 140 yards and has seven or more catches in every week but one. The Browns have allowed just ten touchdowns through the air in eight weeks, but they haven't faced a pass game like Miami. Hill stays full entrenched in the DFS landscape in all kinds of contests and you should be thrown out of a league if you don't play him in a season long league.
Chris GodwinTB Coby BryantSEASafe
The targets and the receptions are holding him on the fantasy landscape, because Godwin doesn't have a single 100-yard game or a touchdown in 2022. He has had six or more targets in every game this season except for Week 1 and he has averaged over 11 targets over the last four weeks. The Seahawks secondary is not good at all, and Bryant just had trouble with Rondale Moore last week. Look for Godwin to continue his consistent 12-14 fantasy points from most weeks to keep you happy but I don't see enough of a breakout game to love him for DFS purposes.
Christian KirkJAC$5900 / $6800LJarious SneedKCModerate
It took a little while to get going, but Kirk made it happen against the lowly Raiders secondary with eight catches for 76 yards and a touchdown in Week 9. That was a much needed game and he has now come through well in two of the last three. Not only that but his volume is back up again as he has 26 targets in the last three weeks. Kirk gets another solid matchup as the Chiefs have allowed 250 passing yards per game and a league high 17 passing touchdowns. Of course that happens because teams are playing from behind a lot, but the stat is what it is and Jacksonville should also have lots of garbage time. I love Kirk in any seasonal league and he is a sneaky play in some DFS GPPs for Week 10.
Amon-Ra St. BrownDET$6900 / $6900Kyler GordonCHISafe
Things have been slipping for St. Brown and the Lions offense, but he is still their top pass catcher. He has 19 targets in the last two weeks, even if it has only been good for 11 catches and 124 yards. He also hasn't scored since Week 2. I think the tide is going to change this week against the Bears though, as Chicago's secondary has been getting lit up of late. I don't have enough confidence in Jared Goff that I am tossing St. Brown into a large number of DFS lineups, but I do think he is nearly a lock for 12-15 fantasy points in PPR scoring and should be in all of your weekly starting lineups.
Curtis SamuelWAS#N/AAvonte MaddoxPHIModerate
He only had four targets for the second straight week, but Samuel made the most of it with three catches for 65 yards and a touchdown to go with a 16 yard run. Taylor Heinicke gives the Commanders passing game more validity, but Carson Wentz looked Samuel's way more often. He remains a guy who can make something out of not much, and his even limited role in the running game gives him even a little more value. The Commanders should be getting spanked around by the Eagles on Monday night which should lead to garbage time and Maddox is the weakest link in the secondary. Give Samuel a start in your seasonal leagues and try to fit him into your Monday night DFS Showdown lineups.
Rondale MooreARI$5200 / $5800Troy HillLARSafe
Despite DeAndre Hopkins hogging all of the attention, Moore has really held his own the last few weeks. Well, throw out that game against the Saints. he had eight catches on ten targets in Week 9 for 69 yards and it is the fourth time in five weeks he has been over ten fantasy points in full-PPR scoring. He has just one touchdown which is a little disappointing, but I think he has a great opportunity in Week 10. His target share has been great and Hopkins should be seeing a lot of Jalen Ramsey this week. Moore is a decent DFS dart throw and is a great start in your season long leagues for Week 10.
JuJu Smith-SchusterKC$6000 / $7000Darious WilliamsJACSafe
He continues to be the most reliable wide receiver on the team and now Smith-Schuster has 22 catches and two scores in the last three weeks. He also has racked up 325 passing yards over that span. I do think that the Chiefs will work Kadarius Toney into the offense more and more as the season progresses, but I think Juju's role is already set and it is big. He has had eight targets in every game but two, and I expect him to continue to be Patrick Mahomes go-to wide receiver. The Jaguars secondary is giving up nearly 240 yards per game through the air, but Mahomes should smash that. I actually like Smith-Schuster not only as a seasonal play, but in DFS contests this week as well.
Jerry JeudyDEN$5700 / $6400Roger McCrearyTENSafe
He was not moved at the trade deadline unfortunately for fantasy players, but Jeudy has been making an impact even on Denver’s trash offense of late. His efficiency has been terrible as he has 19 catches on 33 targets in the last four games, but he has 50+ yards in five straight and two touchdowns in the last five weeks. The Titans secondary is an absolute mess and McCreary allows 78% of passes to be caught. I am still skeptical of using any part of the Denver offense for DFS purposes, but I am feeling better of late with trusting Jeudy in my season long leagues.
Wan'Dale RobinsonNYG$4700 / $5600Desmond KingHOUModerate
I had high hopes for Robinson when he returned from injury and he did come through with two games with 10+ fantasy points against the Ravens and Jaguars but laid a big egg before the bye against Seattle with just two catches for 15 yards. I am not going to let one bad game make me shy away from him in my season long leagues, especially considering it is Week 10 and between byes and injuries we need all the help we can get. I’ve continually called Robinson Sterling Shepard 2.0 and I still think he will come through with six to eight targets and has a strong chance at a score against Houston.

Top NFL Week 10 WR/CB Matchups To Target


Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams (vs. Byron Murphy)

I saw something on Twitter this past week that no one plays Cooper Kupp in DFS anymore? He has a touchdown in five of eight games, and he has 100 receiving yards in five of eight games and he has seven or more catches in eight of nine. His one bad game this season was against Arizona, but this one is at home, and he crushed the Cardinals in the second game they played in 2021 as well. He really is the only part of the offense that works, and he just seems to be open all the time. His salary remains high, but he is the closest thing to a sure thing there is in fantasy football. 

Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins (vs. Martin Emerson)

I mean how can we not keep riding this train? The Browns are coming off their bye, but their secondary isn’t at full strength, and Hill has 140+ yards in three of the last four and hasn’t had fewer than seven receptions since Week 3. He has racked up 30+ DK points in three of the last four and the Browns give up 25 points a game. The Dolphins pass game is firing on all cylinders and while Jaylen Waddle is considerably cheaper, Hill has slate breaking capabilities. 


Allen Lazard, Green Bay Packers (vs. Trevon Diggs)

Romeo Doubs is out which leaves a complete skeleton crew of misfits to catch the ball for the Packers. This leaves Lazard there who has been the one guy Aaron Rodgers likes and has had seven or more targets in five straight. I don’t except the Packers to score a lot of points, but I do expect Lazard to be far and away the top receiver on the team. Trevon Diggs is a great corner, but he also takes chances and gets beaten a lot. Lazard should well outperform his DFS salary. 

Darnell Mooney, Chicago Bears (vs. Amani Oruwariye)

The Bears passing game has come to life with the sudden improvements of Justin Fields. Mooney has been the main beneficiary and I think adding a decent receiver like Chase Claypool only helps as now the defense can’t fully focus on Mooney. Despite the good game last week, the Lions secondary is absolutely awful. Look for Fields to be efficient again and focus on Mooney plenty. He has 50 receiving yards or a touchdown for six straight weeks and has five or more receptions in three of the last four. 

Bargain Bin

Wan'Dale Robinson, New York Giants (vs. Desmond King)

I started out with Mecole Hardman here but with him out I had to pivot. Give me a guy that I have really liked since coming back from injury. Not only do I think he is fast and shifty and has the ability to get open, but the Giants offense really has few other options to throw to. Darious Slayton is ok and don’t get me started on Kenny Golladay. The Texans secondary is pretty solid but King has allowed ten of the last 13 passes at him to be caught and in a PPR format I think Robinson can get you double digit fantasy points and if he finds the end zone he will give you a great return on his very reasonable salary.
