Fantasy Football WR Target Projections: Most Volume for Week 10

Volume significantly raises both the floor and ceiling of wide receivers in fantasy football. These are the ones I project to see the most targets in Week 10 (Sunday main slate only). Please note these aren’t rankings, just volume projections.

For target projections for five wideouts under $5,000 go HERE.

Julio Jones, ATL at CLE, $8,300 — The Browns’ defense is crumbling under the weight of significant injuries and tired legs. Cleveland has given up an average of 33.5 points per game over its past four. This week, special rookie CB Denzel Ward (hip) is in serious doubt and opposite starting CB E.J. Gaines (concussion) is out. Matt Ryan ($6,200) is locked in on the unstoppable Jones, targeting him 11.4 times per game over the past five.
Projection: 11 targets

Michael Thomas, NO at CIN, $8,100 — Thomas’ eruption last week came in the best possible environment: a Superdome game against the high-flying Rams. This week’s on-paper matchup against the Bengals’ struggling secondary is a good one, but it’s outdoors against an injury-decimated Bengals offense that could struggle to keep up. Still, Thomas is the most efficient wideout in the league, turning 79 targets this season into an absurd 70-880-5 line.
Projection: 10 targets


Davante Adams, GB vs. MIA, $7,800 — Following last week’s loss to the Patriots, Aaron Rodgers ($6,400) expressed regret about not forcing the ball to Adams more. He won’t hesitate to dial up his best receiver often on Sunday despite a tough on-paper shadow matchup against Dolphins CB Xavien Howard.
Projection: 10 targets


Jarvis Landry, CLE vs. ATL, $6,200 — The Falcons are starting to get a bit healthier on defense, but they’re still weak in the middle of the field. That’s good news for the Browns, as Baker Mayfield’s favorite target is slot man Landry, who will see a lot of Brian Poole (Pro Football Focus’ No. 79 CB). Landry’s $6,200 tag is the cheapest he’s been since Week 1.
Projection: 10 targets


Keenan Allen, LAC at OAK, $7,100 — It’s an absurdly good matchup for Allen and the Chargers’ pass game. The Raiders’ secondary has sunk behind the Bucs’ in most pass-defense categories for worst in the league. There are volume concerns for Allen, though, as Tyrell Williams, Mike Williams, Travis Benjamin, Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler are all healthy.
Projection: 9 targets


Tyler Boyd, CIN vs. NO, $7,500 — A.J. Green’s toe injury might not be a good thing for Boyd, who was feasting on single coverage and already seeing 8.2 targets per game. With no threats at tight end and question marks all around Boyd at wideout, we can expect the Saints to pay extra attention to Boyd. Still, the individual matchup against Saints slot CB P.J. Williams is a very good one.
Projection: 9 targets


Julian Edelman, NE at TEN, $6,800 — The Titans’ defense has played well this season, ranking 12th in yards per play allowed and first in points per game allowed. However, the Titans have faced a cake QB schedule including Ryan Tannehill, Blake Bortles, Josh Allen, Joe Flacco and Dak Prescott in five of their eight games. Tom Brady ($6,000) is a different kind of test. Josh Gordon ($6,000) has by far the best matchup against struggling Titans CB Malcolm Butler, but Edelman’s volume is very reliable. He’s seen at least seven targets in all five of his games this season and is averaging 8.8.
Projection: 9 targets


Mike Evans, TB vs. WAS, $7,000 — Evans got his lunch eaten by Panthers CB James Bradberry last week, catching one ball on 10 targets. The embarrassing performance could send him back into a rotational role as Chris Godwin/DeSean Jackson are hungry for snaps, but it’s more likely the Bucs try him again — this time against Redskins veteran CB Josh Norman.
Projection: 9 targets


Robert Woods, LAR vs. SEA, $6,600 — The best way to attack the Seahawks’ defense is through perimeter wideouts, exploiting Tre Flowers and Shaq Griffin. Woods continues to run as Jared Goff’s favorite target, as he easily leads the team in targets at a strong 25 percent share.
Projection: 8 targets


Cooper Kupp, LAR vs. SEA, $6,400 — Kupp (knee) returned last week to play on 100 percent of the snaps. His 15 percent target share in that game is a concern, but Kupp’s elite red-zone role and very high catch rate (77 percent over his past five games) keep him in play weekly.
Projection: 8 targets
