Fantasy Football: Week Ten Waiver Wire Wide Receivers aka Where There’s A Will, There’s A Wide Receiver
The nice thing about waiver wire wide receiver options is there is always a couple of nice options available. Week ten is no different than all the other weeks, where a bunch of guys who should be on teams are still available. So let’s take a look at who the best waiver wire wide receiver options for week ten are.
Robert Woods – Owned in 34% of leagues – There comes a point where we are just ignoring the obvious. If Robert Woods having 4 catches for 70 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns in week nine hasn’t helped you realize he is a solid fantasy football option, I’m not sure what else will. Over the last four weeks, he has averaged 5 catches for 65 yards. While this week is the first time he’s scored a touchdown this season, that doesn’t mean he won’t have more opportunities. He is clearly a focal point of a high-powered Los Angeles Rams offense.
Marqise Lee – Owned in 37% of leagues – Marqise Lee is a top 20 receiver in targets and a top 25 in receptions this year. In week nine, he caught 8 passes for 75 yards and 1 touchdown. While I understand that his numbers haven’t been amazing, he has consistently been a low end WR2/high end WR3 all year and should be owned in all formats.
Terrance Williams – Owned in 10% of leagues – Terrance Williams caught 9 passes for 141 yards in week nine. Don’t let those numbers fool you into thinking he might become a viable fantasy option. He had nearly identical numbers if you combined his previous seven weeks of production. Do not burn your waiver on Terrance Williams.
Bonus: Josh Gordon – Owned in 35% of leagues – This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Many of us have been holding Josh Gordon on our fantasy rosters for years. I was stashing Josh Gordon on my roster before I knew there was a Josh Gordon. Josh Gordon just admitted that he drank or smoked before EVERY FOOTBALL GAME HE’S EVER PLAYED! I don’t know what kind of program his pee-wee football coach was running, but I do know that if Josh Gordon was able to tear up the NFL while under the influence, imagine what he will do sober. He is a must add in every fantasy league. (For the love of God, do not add Josh Gordon to your team.)
