As Week 9 of the season wrapped up, there were some players out with injury, which may leave your fantasy football rosters looking a little different and potentially weaker. While it’s hard to bench your fantasy studs you drafted, the option of streaming players off the waiver wire could bode well for your success in your fantasy football league. It is always a better decision to weigh your options and play the player with a much better matchup than start the same guy every week hoping for a breakout game.
Read on for three wide receiver fantasy football streamers for Week 10. Despite four teams on a bye week this week (NYG, HOU, CIN, CHI), there are plenty of wide receiver streaming options available under 50 percent ownership that could help push your team forward in the right direction. There aren’t many wide receiver fantasy studs on those four teams aside from the Bengals, so it shouldn’t hurt your team too much but nonetheless, streaming options are always there for consideration.
Players must be owned in less than 50 percent of ESPN leagues to be included in the Week 10 fantasy football wide receiver streamers column. All ownerships for players will be provided and will reflect that of Wednesday morning, once waivers are processed.
Week 10 Fantasy Football WR Streamers
Rashod Bateman, BAL at MIA (28.6%)
Rookie wide receiver Rashod Bateman missed the beginning of the season due to injury, but since becoming healthy, has made an impact in the passing game through three games, seeing at least six targets and surpassing double-digit fantasy points in two of those. He has yet to catch a touchdown, but the upside is certainly there this week against a dismal Miami defense who are surrendering the third-most fantasy points per game (FPPG) to opposing wide receivers this season, with 42.4. It’s very possible Baltimore controls this game from start to finish, which may lessen the passing workload overall, but with how they play in the first half, they may be down somehow and will be forced to throw the ball and Bateman will be targeted.
Russell Gage, ATL at DAL (18.9%)
With Calvin Ridley out for extended time due to personal reasons, Russell Gage’s value has skyrocketed considering he’s now the second option in the passing game behind rookie tight end Kyle Pitts. He’s been dealing with injuries all season, much like Bateman, but since returning to the lineup, he’s been targeted at least six times per game and has surpassed 13 fantasy points in both games. He dropped a goose egg in Week 8 against Carolina, failing to even see a target but last week without Ridley, he was targeted eight times. Dallas’ secondary is allowing a whopping 39.2 FPPG to opposing wide receivers this season and it’s likely the Falcons will be playing from behind nearly all game, increasing Gage’s target share and usage.
Amon-Ra St. Brown, DET at PIT (8.7%)
Despite playing for the winless Detroit Lions, Amon-Ra St. Brown has carved out a consistent role in the offense. Since becoming a major part of the game plan, he’s been targeted at least five times in four straight games and has surpassed double-digit fantasy points in two of those. It really is hard to trust anyone on this offense because of how truly bad the Lions have been, especially Jared Goff, but St. Brown has seemed to develop some chemistry with him the last few weeks. Pittsburgh’s defense has looked out-of-sorts, mainly the secondary this season, and are allowing nearly 38 FPPG to opposing wide receivers. It’s risky to stream him but the target share is there and he’s rostered in less than 10 percent of ESPN leagues, making him a solid option in deeper formats.
