This is how we rank the WRs and TEs for Week Ten of the fantasy season. Our rankings aren't just based on name value or past performance - each week we take a comprehensive look at the match-ups and each receiver's past performance and factor that into our projections. The rankings are based on a standard non-PPR league where 10 receiving or rushing yards equal 1 point, receiving and rushing TDs equal 6 pts., and fumbles deduct 2 points.

Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin

Paying attention to the match-ups each week can help you identify less heralded players with the upside to surprise and help you avoid some potential land mines. This is our list of players we expect to surpass expectations, along with a few stud WRs and TEs who may fail to deliver:

Kelvin Benjamin
Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin
The favorite to win Rookie of the Year had his worst performance of the season last week catching just 2-of-10 targets for 18 yards without scoring a touchdown. However, Benjamin has 5 touchdowns in 9 games this season and has clearly established himself as Cam Newton’s go-to option in the passing game. If Cam Newton can get his accuracy under control, Benjamin should go off next week against an Eagles secondary that allows the 4th-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

Calvin Johnson
Lions WR Calvin Johnson
Megatron is expected to make his triumphant return after missing the Lions last three games. Johnson absolutely dominated in Week 1, torching the Giants corners on his way to a 164-yard-two touchdown day. Since then, an ankle injury kept him from contributing at a high level. Now that he is back to 100%, look for Stafford to get Megatron involved right away against Miami’s respectable secondary. Calvin should be back in form by Sunday when he reaches the century mark for the second time of the season and scores his third touchdown of the season.

Rueben Randle
Giants WR Rueben Randle
Despite being the No. 1 WR on the New York Giants depth chart, Rueben Randle is close to falling behind rookie Odell Beckham Jr. Randle has failed to reach 100 yards in a game this season and has only scored twice through eight games. In a brutal loss against Andrew Luck and the Colts on Monday Night Football, Randle caught just 4-of-11 targets for 49 yards whereas Beckham gained over 150 yards and tight end Larry Donnell scored a touchdown. The Giants have to travel to Seattle to face the best secondary in the league in the toughest stadium to play in. Unfortunately for Randle, he will likely be matched up with Richard Sherman. Manning will likely avoid throwing in Sherman’s direction and look for Beckham Jr. and Donnell. Randle has a chance at being productive this season but you gotta keep him on your bench in Week 10.

Andrew Hawkins
Browns WR Andrew Hawkins
Hawkins has clearly been the Browns' No. 1 receiver but he struggled immensely last week against Tampa Bay. After gaining 88 yards and a touchdown the week before against the Raiders, Hawkins caught 3-of-8 targets for 34 yards and was held scoreless. Up next for the Browns are the Bengals who allow the 3rd-fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers. Not only is the matchup extremely difficult but Hawkins is also dealing with a thigh/knee injury and is listed as questionable. It’s not worth the risk. Keep him on your bench this week.

Martellus Bennett
Bears TE Martellus Bennett
Bennett broke out of his three game slump against the Patriots in Week 8 when he gained 95 yards receiving and a touchdown. The Bears were off last week giving them more time to prepare for a matchup with a Packers team that humiliated them back in Week 4. Last time these two teams played, Bennett went off for 134 yards. With Brandon Marshall struggling, look for Cutler to look in Bennett’s direction often. I expect a 90-yard day for the tight end and a touchdown. He is a must-start this week.

Zach Ertz
Eagles TE Zach Ertz
Since the Week 7 bye for the Eagles, tight end Zach Ertz has struggled gaining just 4 yards last week against the Titans. I doubt it will turn around with Mark Sanchez replacing Nick Foles at quarterback. The Eagles have a matchup looming with a Panthers defense that allows just 6.5 points per game to opposing tight ends. Add to that the fact that back up tight end Brent Celek often sees some targets and it is very unlikely Ertz will produce anything better than ho-hum numbers.

Martavis Bryant
Steelers WR Martavis Bryant
The Pittsburgh rookie has been phenomenal since being activated in Week 7. In three games this season, Bryant has 167 yards receiving and whopping five touchdowns! Big Ben is playing lights out—throwing 12 touchdown passes in his last two games—and you have to believe that Bryant is a huge reason why. Last week against a very tough Ravens defense, Bryant secured 3-of-5 targets for 44 yards and two touchdowns. He also added a 3-yard rush. The Steelers have a juicy matchup against a New York Jets secondary that may have the worst cornerbacks in the league. With the way Roethlisberger has been playing, Bryant should go to town on the Jets cornerbacks this week.

Eric Decker
Jets WR Eric Decker
Michael Vick is now the starter of the Jets and Mark Sanchez is the starter for the Eagles. Did you ever think you would hear that? The former Bronco benefitted from Vick’s start last week catching nine passes for 63 yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs. With Percy Harvin’s arrival in the big city, Decker should be able to find one-on-one coverage more often. The Jets face host a Pittsburgh defense that is respectable against the pass but I really like what I saw from Decker last week. His hands are as good as ever and he one of the best route runners in the game. Look for Vick and Decker to hook up for 75 yards and a touchdown.

Larry Donnell
Giants TE Larry Donnell
Donnell started the season off extremely strong but has since faded. However, last week against the Colts, Donnell salvaged his night with a meaningless garbage-time touchdown. He finished with 4 receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown. The Giants travel to Seattle in Week 10 to face the Legion of Boom, who surprisingly allow the 3rd-most fantasy points to tight ends. With Richard Sherman covering Randle, Manning will look for Donnell over the middle often. He could be in for a huge game.

Rams WR Kenny Britt

Don't get too discouraged if your draft didn't work out as you planned. Fantasy success isn't the exclusive result of a solid draft - often it's the in-season waiver wire moves that determines who makes it to the post-season. We've got some hot tips for you that should help you improve your roster and catch up to those lucky sons-of-guns who always seem to draft the right players:

Wide Receivers to Add

Kenny Britt
With Brian Quick out for the season, the Rams are relying on Kenny Britt to be their No. 1 receiver. Against a strong San Francisco secondary on Sunday, Britt helped lead the Rams to an upset victory by catching two passes for 32 yards while scoring the only touchdown of the game for St. Louis. He also played a season-high 92.9% of offensive snaps. The Rams have some favorable matchups coming up including next week when they travel to Arizona to face a Cardinals defense that is allowing the 5th-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Britt is a must add with Quick out for the season and the running game struggling. As Austin Davis continues to develop as a quarterback and work on his chemistry with his receivers, Britt should see a bump in production.

Mike Evans
I know I said to drop him after just a month or so of the season but the Buccaneers receiver has been on fire of late. Last week against the Browns, the rookie had seven catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns. In his last four games, he has scored four times, a pretty darn good ratio to have. With a matchup looming against a Falcons defense that is allowing the 3rd-most passing yards in the league, things continue to look up for Evans.

Wide Receivers to Drop

Wes Welker
The former Patriots slot man was unable to produce against the team that developed him. Tom Brady and Co. massacred the Broncos and Welker did little to help Peyton Manning’s cause. Welker caught just three passes for 31 yards and was scoreless yet again before exiting the game with a back injury. He was also at fault for one of Manning’s two interceptions as he bobbled the ball before being hit hard and the ball bounced right into the hands of cornerback Brandon Browner. Welker managed to avoid a serious injury but he did little to make the Patriots regret letting him go. He has been absolutely dreadful this season averaging just 35 yards per game with only one touchdown to his name. The former Patriot is the 84th-ranked receiver in the league this season and there are too many mouths for Peyton Manning to feed for Welker’s numbers to improve significantly. It’s time to drop him and move on to bigger and better things.

Eddie Royal
Eddie Royal seemed like he was in for a big year after he caught four touchdown passes in Weeks 3 and 4. However, in his last five games, Royal has gained just 27.6 yards per game with only one touchdown. Last week against the Dolphins, he was held with out a reception for the first time this season. Royal is clearly touchdown-dependent, as he has only reached 100 yards once through nine games this season. Rivers is beginning to find Keenan Allen more and Royal’s production has plummeted. Drop him.

Tight Ends to Add

Mychal Rivera
David Carr has begun to lean on his tight end to move the chains. Rivera’s last two games have been his most productive by a long shot. If you are in need of a tight end, the second-year product out of Tennessee could be your guy. Rivera went for a career-high against the Browns in Week 9 catching seven passes for 83 yards. Then in Week 10, he caught 8-of-11 targets for 38 yards and his first two touchdowns of the year. Good tight ends are incredibly scarce in the NFL and Rivera had the potential to be a great player in this league. He is definitely not a TE1 but he is worthy of a spot on your roster if your starter is inconsistent.

Keep a Finger on the Eject Button

Jordan Cameron
Cameron suffered a concussion against the Raiders in Week 8 and was unable to suit up against the Bucs last week. The tight end is considered doubtful for a Thursday night meeting with the division rival Cincinnati Bengals and there is no guarantee that he will be able to go against the Texans in Week 11. Cameron has struggled to get going this season and has failed to get on the same page as quarterback Brian Hoyer. He is ranked 25th at his position this season and has only been effective in one game so far. He's one of the premiere talents at tight end in the NFL but with the concussion and poor quarterback play, his upside is limited. Keep an eye on his status.
