1. Terrace Marshall Jr.
Marshall caught three of six targets for 53 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals, just one week after tying a season high with nine targets and 87 yards.
Although the touchdown came in garbage time, Marshall has clearly established himself as Carolina’s No. 2 receiver.
In Week 10, he should keep the party going against the Falcons’ 32nd-ranked pass defense. In PPR leagues, he’s a solid flex with more upside.
2. Mecole Hardman
After catching six of nine targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Week 9, Hardman now has three touchdowns in three games.
His nine targets tied a season high, and he’s gotten at least four looks in four straight games.
The Chiefs have demonstrated a desire to use Hardman in novel ways, and his speed gives him weekly upside.
Because of his high ceiling, he’s a virtual must-start in favorable matchups, such as the one he’ll face next week against Jacksonville.
3. Noah Fant
Fant had been on a roll before stalling in Weeks 7 and 8, but in Week 9 he exploded for 96 yards on five catches (six targets) against Arizona.
Fant’s performance may have been a fluke against the Cardinals, but he has another favorable matchup against the Buccaneers in Week 10. Consider him a premier streaming option with long-term upside.
4. Jeff Wilson Jr.
Wilson Jr. is only owned in 51% of Yahoo leagues, but after tying for the team lead in carries (9), rushing yards (51), and scoring a touchdown in his Miami debut, it’s safe to say he deserves to be owned in a higher percentage.
Wilson Jr. will be heavily involved in Mike McDaniel’s familiar scheme (he also caught three passes for 21 yards), and with a highly favorable matchup against Cleveland in Week 10, he should be in many fantasy lineups.
5. Cole Kmet
Kmet has three touchdown receptions in the last two weeks. He caught a season-high five passes (six targets) for 41 yards and two touchdowns in a favorable matchup against the Dolphins, and he’s as good a streaming option as you’ll find in Week 10.
Kmet has a solid floor this week against the Lions, who allowed the fifth-most FPPG to TEs entering Week 9.
