It’s Week 10 of the fantasy football season and for many leagues that means there are just four weeks left until the playoffs. Perhaps now more than ever, positional rankings like those for wide receivers can help you make that big push to the finish line.
Unfortunately, as the Monday night game showed us, Green Bay’s wideouts may not be able to offer much help towards this goal. The Packers’ offense is a shell of itself without Aaron Rodgers, making it hard to trust Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams or Randall Cobb (as you can see in the rankings below) with Brett Hundley running the show. The big chunk plays just don’t seem to be there.
T.Y. Hilton has been known to “own” Houston and he did not disappoint this past Sunday with his best game (5-175-2) of the season. Hilton will likely come nowhere close to this production this week, but Pittsburgh is not a terrible matchup either. But it could be Antonio Brown who puts up a line similar to Hilton’s Week 9 performance against the Colts’ vulnerable secondary, which is the Steelers’ top target is No. 1 (again).
And besides Baltimore, Kansas City, Oakland and Philadelphia being on bye, Mike Evans will not be available this week either due to a one-game suspension. A.J. Green avoided a similar fate, however, and is among my top three for Week 10.
Teams on bye: Baltimore, Kansas City, Oakland, Philadelphia
