Week 10 is here, and we have some significant bye weeks. This means you probably are down some of your biggest playmakers. No fear, I have found a few players you can put in your lineups this weekend. Here are the WR vs. CB matchups I’m keeping an eye on in Week 10.
Week 10 WR Matchups
Chris Godwin vs Tennessee Titans
First one I like this week is Chris Godwin. He’s going against Eric Garror, and he’s giving up 14 points a game to receivers. This is only his third game this season, but in the two games he’s played in, he’s allowed 50 yards and has given up one touchdown. The ball will be thrown his way and often. Godwin has been a very solid receiver this season until last week. This will be a good week for him to bounce back and be a very good option if you are missing a top receiver. Godwin is averaging 58 yards a game but has only seen the end zone once. That will change this week. This is an easy choice for me.
D.K. Metcalf vs Washington Commanders
D.K. Metcalf is going to be a very good choice for you if you are in need of a top receiver. He’s going against Kendall Fuller. Fuller’s allowed SIX touchdowns already this year, allowing a 72% catch rate and over 50 yards a game. This is my no-brainer this week. Metcalf is averaging 65 yards a game but has only seen the end zone twice, and not since October. That might all change this week.
Terry McLaurin vs Seattle Seahawks
On the other side of the ball is Terry McLaurin, who is also going to have a big week facing Riq Woolen. Woolen is allowing a 55% completion rate, has been allowing big chunks of yards the last few weeks, and has given up three touchdowns since October 15th. And he was especially bad last week, allowing 62% of balls caught and one touchdown. If you know how this works, Woolen will be picked on. Scary Terry is more than capable of having a big week. McLaurin is averaging 63 yards a game and almost eight targets a game.
Marquise Brown vs Atlanta Falcons
My last pick of the week is Marquise “Hollywood” Brown. With Kyler Murray set to make his debut, Brown is the option here. He will be facing Jeff Okudah. Over the last three weeks, Okudah has faced 25 targets and allowed 17 of them to be caught. Last week alone, he allowed an 80% catch rate against Minnesota. This is why Brown will get plenty of targets, and we know he can catch the ball. He’s averaging a 55% catch rate so far and averaging almost five catches a game. If Murray is going to try and get the ball to anyone, it’s going to be Brown, and this could be Brown’s biggest week.
