Week 10 was a get-right week for some of the elite tier at wide receiver, as Tyreek Hill, Stefon Diggs, CeeDee Lamb, and Keenan Allen, among others, put up big games in the midst of somewhat concerning trends. One guy who didn't really take part was Davante Adams, who finished as WR15 with seven catches for 78 yards -- a fine game, but still another disappointing performance from the presumed WR1 entering the season.
Adams is WR4 on the season, so it's hard to say he's been too disappointing, but he hasn't been the dominant player we expected -- he has as many games with 13 or fewer PPR points (four) as he does with 15-plus. But he's still WR2 for me this week, and I still think he's probably the best Fantasy WR the rest of the way -- it's either him or Cooper Kupp, and both have their bye weeks left. Adams still leads the league in target share, and the absence of Aaron Jones for the next week or two may only increase that.
I don't know how much of a discount you can get for Adams, but if anyone is selling him for anything close to a discount, I'm buying. His current 3.06% touchdown rate is his lowest since 2015 -- he was at 12.1% in 2020. He's basically been every bit as good as last season with the exception of the touchdowns.

Week 11 WR Rankings
- Tyreek Hill vs. DAL -- Hill is on pace for over 200 targets. If he could somehow match his current target volume with anything like his career efficiency -- 9.5 yards per target vs. 7.7 this season -- he might just challenge Cooper Kupp for the No. 1 overall spot.
- Davante Adams @MIN
- Stefon Diggs vs. IND -- Diggs has at least 85 yards and a touchdown in three of his past four games. He's just fine.
- Justin Jefferson vs. GB
- Deebo Samuel @JAX -- One way for Samuel to continue to be a dominant force even if the target volume starts to fade is by the 49ers manufacturing touches for him in other facets of the game. He had just five targets in Week 10 but had a career-high five carries en route to another massive performance. He might be a sell-high candidate, but I'd bet on the 49ers continuing to find ways to get him involved.
- CeeDee Lamb @KC -- This is a great matchup in what should be a shootout, and I might be ranking him too low.
- Keenan Allen vs. PIT -- The Chargers offense has scuffled just a bit of late, but Allen is still seeing a massive target volume. Things have reverted back to how they were prior to the first month of the season before Mike Williams was briefly challenging him for alpha status.
- Ja'Marr Chase @LV
- Chris Godwin vs. NYG -- Even with a foot injury, Godwin still led the non-RB Buccaneers with seven catches on eight targets, though he turned them into just 57 yards in Week 10. I'll bet on the volume and take the over on the yards.
- Mike Evans vs. NYG -- Evans has four or fewer targets in three of the past four games, which is at least a little worrying, right? On the other hand, we know he's a constant deep threat and Tom Brady's go-to red zone target, so you live with the low-volume stretches, like we saw last season.
- D.K. Metcalf vs. ARI -- Hopefully now that Russell Wilson got his "knock-off-the-rust" game under his belt, this offense will turn back into the efficient, big-play machine we've gotten used to.
- Marquise Brown @CHI -- I've seen some suggest that Rashod Bateman's debut has somehow sidelined Marquise Brown's breakout season, so I'd just like to point out that while Bateman has a healthy 28 targets in his four games, Brown has 44 in that same stretch. If Bateman is the reason Brown has averaged just 6.1 yards per target over the past four games, the Ravens have much bigger issues.
- Terry McLaurin @CAR -- I'll just keep chasing the volume with McLaurin. He got eight targets in Week 10, a 25% target share. There just aren't a lot of wide receivers with his kind of upside on a weekly basis.
- A.J. Brown vs. HOU -- I can explain away a 42-yard game on 11 targets as just normal variance, but it's harder to make that excuse when Brown was targeted just four times in Week 10, catching one for 16 yards. I wonder if his lingering knee issues are more of a problem than the Titans are letting on. Or maybe it was just a bad matchup in a low-volume game? I'll give the benefit of the doubt that it's the latter, but I want to see him turn things around this week against a great matchup.
- D.J. Moore vs. WAS -- I have faith Cam Newton can help turn Moore's season around, and you couldn't ask for a better spot for Newton's first start against Washington's porous defense.
- Brandin Cooks @TEN
- Amari Cooper @KC
- Diontae Johnson @LAC -- Johnson still saw a whole bunch of targets with Mason Rudolph at QB in Week 10, but obviously the quality of those targets left something to be desired. Still, he's going to brute force his way to being a must-start Fantasy option most weeks with the volume he gets.
- Tee Higgins @LV -- Between Higgins not taking a huge step forward and Ja'Marr Chase emerging as a historically great rookie performer, it feels like there's a lot of negativity around Higgins. But I love his usage in this offense and I'm willing to bet on him putting together a big second half. Joe Burrow is playing much better than a year ago, but that hasn't impacted Higgins' production yet. It's coming.
- Jaylen Waddle @NYJ
- Tyler Lockett vs. ARI
- Michael Pittman @BUF -- I am admittedly a bit nervous about this ranking. The Bills have just been so dominant defensively, it's hard to have too much faith in Pittman. On the other hand, he hasn't had fewer than 12.1 PPR points in a game since Week 6, so I don't know how you could sit him either.
- Adam Thielen vs. GB
- DeVonta Smith vs. NO -- Smith has been sensational the past two weeks, putting up 182 yards and three touchdowns, and he's done it on just 12 targets. Or, should that be, "but he's done it on just 12 targets." That kind of production speaks to his clear and obvious upside, but it's also really, really hard to be a must-start Fantasy option on just six targets per game. This could end up being a slow-paced game with relatively few opportunities against a great defense, which puts Smith in an awfully tough spot.
- Hunter Renfrow vs. CIN -- Having 21 catches for 153 yards over a three-game stretch is pretty hard to do. Renfrow has limited upside, but they're just throwing the ball to him so much that it's hard to get away from him.
- Jarvis Landry vs. DET -- I don't know if Landry just isn't at full speed due to his knee injury from earlier in the season, but his production has been incredibly disappointing, with just 37 yards over the past two games. That's dreadful, but he also has a 24% target share, so I have to believe there's going to be production at some point.
- Cole Beasley vs. IND
- Sterling Shepard @TB -- I'm assuming the Giants receiving corps will be healthy for the first time maybe all season coming off the bye, which makes it awfully hard to know what to expect from them in this one. But there should be plenty of volume against Tampa, and that should lead to plenty of opportunities for Shepard, who has been a target hog out of the slot when healthy.
- Rashod Bateman @CHI -- Bateman looks like a potential star, and his upside is worth chasing, especially because there is more room for a third option to put up numbers in a more pass-heavy Ravens offense.
- Marvin Jones vs. SF
- Corey Davis vs. MIA -- Injuries have been an issue for Davis, but his 16-game pace is 66 catches for 1,010 yards, and nine touchdowns. He's having a better season than you realize.
- Mike Williams vs. PIT
- Darnell Mooney vs. BAL
- Jamal Agnew vs. SF -- The Jaguars are just going to keep giving him the ball, and I wouldn't mind seeing him with a few more carries after he had 79 yards on three last week. That might be a more natural way to let his playmaking shine through.
- A.J. Green @SEA
- Brandon Aiyuk @JAX -- Aiyuk's arrow seemed to be pointing up and then he delivered a dud in Week 10. However, the 49ers probably won't have too many games where they only throw the ball 21 times moving forward. The bad news is, Week 11 against the Jaguars might be one of those games.
- Jamison Crowder vs. MIA
- Christian Kirk @SEA
- Mecole Hardman vs. DAL
- Kenny Golladay @TB
- Jakobi Meyers @ATL -- Hey, he's allowed to score touchdowns! Maybe that'll spark Meyers, because he has been ice cold of late, with 56 or fewer yards in six straight games.
- Allen Robinson vs. BAL
- Emmanuel Sanders vs. IND
- Tyler Boyd @LV
- Kadarius Toney @TB
- Elijah Moore vs. MIA
- Laviska Shenault Jr. vs. SF -- I think there's a chance the light switches on for Trevor Lawrence and this offense just takes a big leap forward, but Shenault has just 52 yards over his past three games. He may not even belong this high.
- Russell Gage vs. NE
