Week 10 Wide Receiver & Tight End Waiver Wire Pickups
WR – Adam Humphries – Adam Humphries is widely available
around the industry and has produced double-digit scoring weeks in three of his
last four. Humphries is better suited for PPR scoring leagues, given the
touchdown production isn’t going to hold like last week. We have seen DeSean
Jackson start to fade in snaps, as he voiced his displeasure for Tampa.
Humphries has played over 50 snaps in every week since the bye in Week 5.
Humphries has 26 targets over the last three weeks, and Tampa Bay’s defense is
going to continuously keep the volume high for the Bucs passing game. Humphries
is worth a look in a WR3 or FLEX role as the Bye Weeks keep coming.
WR – Courtland Sutton – For those in leagues where some
are a little late to the party, Courtland Sutton is still out there for you. In
more competitive leagues, Sutton could have been picked up last week. The
Demaryius Thomas trade has opened up snaps and targets for Denver, and Sutton
played over 50 snaps last week. He has seen 70% of the team snaps anyway this
season, but targets will be more consistent. Sutton has an extremely favorable
schedule the rest of the way. Outside of the two matchups against the Chargers,
Sutton will face teams in the bottom half in fantasy points allowed to opposing
WR – Marquez Valdes-Scantling – The Packers offense
continues to be inconsistent, which is something we have rarely said in the
fantasy era. If you hung onto Marquez Valdes-Scantling, then well done, but if
you are in need of a WR, go out and grab him. MVS and Courtland Sutton are
going to be high priority this week. MVS has seen 60 snaps in three of the last
four weeks. The week Geronimo Allison returned, it cut his snaps in half.
Allison is predicted to miss the rest of the season, which puts MVS in line for
full snaps as a WR2 in this offense. He has been over 100 receiving yards in
two of the last three weeks, and has had 27 targets in the last four games.
WR – Maurice Harris – Washington is oddly in the division
race, although the Redskins offense continues to be hit or miss. Harris is a
deep league pickup if the other two wideouts are not available. He is coming
off a ten catch week against Atlanta, and will get Tampa, Houston, and Dallas
over the next three weeks. Paul Richardson is going to miss the rest of the
season, and Jamison Crowder has not played since Week 5. Harris has been on the
rise in snaps due to injuries, and a check down receiver for Alex Smith is
going to bode well. Harris has been averaging about five targets a game over
the last five weeks, and the Week 9 production might be a starting point for
Harris to be more involved.
TE – Chris Herndon – The Jets have not had a fantasy viable tight
end in quite some time, but Chris Herndon is risen with 13 targets over the
last three weeks. While this doesn’t jump out as monster volume, he has
produced over ten fantasy points in three of the last four games. He also has a
touchdown in three of the last four. Herndon ranks second on the Jets in red
zone targets, seeing 21% of them. Three of his four red zone catches have gone
for touchdowns, and both him and Quincy Enunwa should be the targets. Herndon
played his highest set of snaps last week since Week 2.
