Thoughts:

  • Ben Roethlisberger appears to be back to full strength, the Steelers are getting ready to play the Browns and this is a must win statement game for the team. All of that means that Antonio Brown is back to the top of this list. He is coming off one of his massive games with 14 catches, 156 yards and a TD, and there is a very good chance he keeps that good energy rolling. He is still the safest and best receiver in the game for fantasy owners.
  • Last season in week 10 Doug Baldwin caught three TD passes, and in 2016 he is coming off a three TD performance in week 10 as well. Last season he followed that up with eight more TD grabs in the next four weeks. I’m not here to suggest he’s going to do that again, but I do think he is hitting his stride along with the rest of the Seahawks offense. Russell Wilson seems to be putting his struggles behind him and if he’s clicking it means big thing for Baldwin. The emergence of Jimmy Graham takes a little away, but I think big things are coming.
  • Pat Shurmur coming into Minnesota as Offensive Coordinator and installing the west coast offense has done wonders for Stefon Diggs. After starting out hot this season Diggs had started to flounder, but he’s back into the top tiers of receivers. In the last three weeks he has been targeted 42 times, and in just the last two games Diggs has 13 catches per game. The Vikings want to get the ball out quick and that seems to be working out for Diggs, who may not be getting down the field but the numbers are piling up.
  • The momentum in Detroit appears to have shifted from Marvin Jones back to Golden Tate, who was thought all preseason to be the guy to own. Tate has 32 catches in his last four games, a TD in two of those games and 79 yards or more in three of them. Marvin Jones is still a legitimate threat and Matt Stafford is looking for him down the field, they just haven’t connected lately. Tate is the safer play of these two and in a PPR league he’s even higher on this list.
  • Taking on the Green Bay Packers these days is fantasy gold, just look at what the Titans did last week. This is good timing for the Redskins to be taking them on to, because the team is rolling right now. I am assuming there will be no Desean Jackson again and that means good things for Jamison Crowder who has four straight games in double digits scoring in non-PPR leagues. These last four games include three TD catches and two 100 yard games. Crowder is clearly the Redskins receiver to own right now, but Pierre Garcon is also back in the mix and makes for a nice flex play as the targets and catches have been rolling in lately.
  • Are we getting ready to see the breakout run from DeVante Parker? Last week against the Chargers he caught five passes for 103 yards and we saw the potential he has as a deep threat if Ryan Tannehill can just get him the ball. Last season we saw Parker string together several big games in a row at the end of the season, and there’s a chance he may just be hitting his stride once again. He’s still a risky play who is boom or bust, but there’s a really big game coming sooner or later.
