Some wide receivers stand out as must-start fantasy football options every week while others come and go depending on matchups and other factors. Hitting on under-the-radar plays is big in season-long fantasy and DFS. We’ve identified two wide receivers worth starting and two to consider sitting ahead of Week 10 to help you achieve fantasy success this weekend.
Wide Receiver Starts
Will Fuller V, Houston Texans vs. Cleveland Browns
Fuller is on a roll and has shown tremendous consistency as of late. He’s caught a touchdown pass in six straight games. He has fewer receptions and targets than most top options but his ability to get chunk yardage as a top-notch downfield threat makes him worth playing over other WR1s.
Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos vs. Las Vegas Raiders
Jeudy reached career highs in receptions (7) and receiving yards (125) in Week 9 and has garnered plenty of Drew Lock’s attention in the last two weeks. The rookie racked up 14 targets on Sunday after recorded 10 the previous week. Las Vegas’s secondary got boost from the windy conditions that limited the Cleveland Browns in Week 8 and Jeudy seems poised to hit his stride for the remainder of the season.
Wide Receiver Sits
Jarvis Landry, Cleveland Browns vs. Houston Texans
Landry leads the Browns in targets with 50 but has yet to but together an eye-popping stat line. He’s still only found the end zone once this season. The returns of Nick Chubb and Austin Hooper could make Landry less of a focal point in Week 10 and Cleveland hasn’t leaned on any one player all year.
Darius Slayton, New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Slayton is a boom-or-bust play that’s been disappointing in most of his games this year. While he’s a premier deep threat, his exposure has waned in divisional play. He hasn’t totaled more than four targets against any NFC East team and was targeted just once by Daniel Jones in his last outing. If the Eagles can continue generating pressure up front like they have all season, Slayton’s impact will be reduced. His ability to stretch the field is his greatest asset.
