Top Fantasy WRs of Week 10

Anquan Boldin - 7 catches, 92 Rec Yds, 19 Rushing Yards, 2 TDs - Boldin makes a last minute surge onto the list and that's not a shock. Certainly, you can start him without worry every week. Boldin is just nasty, just incredibly tough and a guy who Warner looks for in the red zone often.

Eddie Royal - 6 catches, 164 Rec Yds, 1 TDs - Royal had an immensely good Thursday night, and you can imagine he may have great value going forward since the running game in Denver is bad enough that Tatum Bell's phone rang. When Marshall is struggling, Royal tags in and eventually it loosens up for Marshall because Royal will hurt teams. He's a great flex and a decent 3 - maybe even 2 - depending on your league.

Reggie Wayne - 6 catches, 114 Rec Yds, 1 TDs - I thought Wayne would not look too good this weekend. And there were times he didn't. But that didn't stop him from having a good day, especially when many other studs went all average on us. Wayne is still having a shaky season, but I think he reminded us who Manning's favorite target is.

Brandon Marshall - 6 catches, 89 Rec Yds, 1 TDs - The other half of the great Denver tandem, Marshall took a while to get going but put up some decent numbers when he did. He'll do pretty well as long as the opposition has to cover Royal, Stokely and Scheffler as well. And as long as Cutler has to throw because the run game is iffy....

Kevin Walter - 4 catches,85 Rec Yds, 1 TDs - Andre Johnson was locked down this weekend, but Walter played well as he has for a long time now. Walter has been getting a lot of the TDs Johnson isn't getting and I am beginning to wonder if that changes any time soon. It's not a ton of catches and his production is a little streaky but as a WR 4 he is great - and even more worthwhile if you have return yards as well.

Best of the rest -
Mark Bradley - 9 catches, 81 Rec Yds, 1 TDs - You have to start looking at Bradley hard now that Thigpen is throwing effectively. I wouldn't want to count on him right now but Thigpen is targeting him frequently (this weekend 14 times) and clearly has an eye for him. Bowe and Gonzo are the steady plays here - Bradley is the bench. But grab him now in case he joins the other two down the stretch.

Marques Colston - 7 catches, 140 Rec Yds - Anyone listen to the Beat Writer in Nawlins and bench him? I hope not. I think Brees - even in a loss - will go to the guy he knows will make big plays in his offense. The TDs will be coming shortly as Colston is just warming up.

Malcom Floyd - 4 catches, 76 Rec Yds 1 TDs - Didn't have a ton of targets but caught them all. A little undertargeted and streaky but scored in 3 of the 4 games he has been used in this year. On the watchlist? I think so.

DeSean Jackson - 4 catches, 61 Rec Yds, 24 Rushing Yards, 1 Rushing TDs - Clearly we have little to worry about in terms of the Eagles not involving Jackson because of the return of Curtis. They will get him touches - even on the ground.

RBs coming after I catch up on Email....
