Unlike running backs and quarterbacks, the Week 10 Waiver Wire Wide Receivers article is filled with a few more options to look at for your team simply because they are always more popping out every week. However, most receivers who put up big numbers one week fail to live up to the hype the next, which is why I tend to avoid those "fluke-type" guys. See if one of these guys is sitting there for the picking.
As always, remember that this waiver wire list will continue to expand throughout the day Monday and Tuesday. So check back often.
Aaron Dobson - Patriots (Owned Percentage – ESPN 4.8%/Yahoo 35%)
Once the spot that Kenbrell Thompkins played, Dobson is now Tom Brady's new every-down "X" receiver and it's paying off. Thompkins was a healthy scratch Sunday against the Steelers, which allowed Dobson to put up season highs with 5 catches for 130 yards and 2 scores. Dobson got off to a slow start to the season, but has looked strong in 3 out of the last 4 games. The presence of Rob Gronkowski will continue to make life a bit easier for the receiving corps, which makes Dobson a must-pickup option this week, despite the team heading into their bye. The Pats have a date with the Panthers in Week 11.
Riley Cooper - Eagles (Owned Percentage – ESPN 8.9%/Yahoo 10%)
When your quarterback throws for over 400 yards and 7 touchdowns, you're bound to be some sort of beneficiary. Cooper was just that after catching 5 passes for 139 yards and 3 touchdowns. Raiders rookie D.J. Hayden didn't play badly, but Foles' placement of the ball was just too perfect for Hayden to cover. He made a few mistakes to, one that allowed Cooper to shuffle in a 63-yard score. Don't get too excited about Cooper. In the previous week, he raked in all of 13 yards against the Giants. It's clear that he and Foles have a connection, but Cooper is a low-end flex option at best going up against the Packers.
Percy Harvin - Seahawks (Owned Percentage – ESPN 39.3%/Yahoo 74%)
I've been listing Harvin for awhile now, but owners still aren't listening. Or they just don't have room for a player who has yet to take a snap in 2013. Harvin was quickly ruled out for Week 9, but an MRI on his hip showed their is no complications thus far. I doubt Harvin will be active for Week 10, but there is almost a 100% possibility he will be ready by the time your fantasy playoffs roll around. If you can make room, pick him up. His owned average is clearly on the rise in Yahoo leagues.
Cole Beasley - Cowboys (Owned Percentage – ESPN .7%/Yahoo 3%)
It's hard to count on weekly production from No. 3 receivers because they are so unpredictable. However, Beasley has been on a bit of a role lately. In 2 of the last 3 weeks, he has put up 6 catches. He was also targeted 9 times against the Vikings. Beasley is worthy of a pickup if you have a dud or 2 sitting on your squad, but he's better off as a flex option when the Cowboys are up against pathetic secondaries. Since the Cowboys still face teams like the Raiders and Giants, Beasley could come in handy.
Michael Crabtree - 49ers (Owned Percentage – ESPN 4.9%/Yahoo 10%)
Crabtree's return is still a couple weeks away, but it's always good to get a jump on the competition. Like Harvin, Crabtree has yet to take a 2013 snap due to an Achilles injury. And when he does come back, he might not be the same player because this type of injury tends to zap a lot of speed, especially to a receiver. Crabtree might not be as big a factor in your fantasy playoffs as some hope, but he's still worth the risk. There's too much talent and chemistry with Colin Kaepernick not to take a chance, even if you do have to sit on him for awhile. This should be the first week most owners start realizing he's still on the waiver wire.
