As Week 10 approaches the best wide receiver options are those who will have several consecutive high-scoring games.

If you find one of those players, then they can be used as trading pieces for the end of the season or be utilized as solid flex options.

These are the best available receiver options for Week 10:


Laurent Robinson, Dallas Cowboys

Robinson has scored a touchdown in back-to-back weeks.

So far this season he is averaging 15.3 yards per reception with 368 total receiving yards.

Robinson should definitely continue on his current streak given that Miles Austin is doubtful for Week 10 against the Bills.


Earl Bennett, Chicago Bears

Bennett has finally returned from an internal torso injury he suffered in Week 2, and he came up big with 95 yards and a touchdown.

Look for Cutler to target Bennett more and more as the weeks go on.

Week 10's matchup against the Detroit Lions defense should be a true test for Bennett, as the Eagles had trouble all around defensively in Week 9.


Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens

Smith has 397 yards and four touchdowns this season while averaging 19.9 yards per reception.


It is difficult to predict when Smith is going to have a big game. He scored three of his four touchdowns against St. Louis in Week 3.

That being said, he has a favorable matchup this week against the Seahawks defense.

He could easily come away with a touchdown if Flacco continues to target him.


Josh Cribbs, Cleveland Browns

Here's another guy who has found the end zone in back-to-back games. Look for Cribbs to keep his streak alive against the Rams' weak defense.

Cribbs has three touchdowns and 298 yards this season.

Having Peyton Hillis out for another week is bad news for the Browns but gives Cribbs another week to show that he can be a regular contributor.

Jacoby Ford, Oakland Raiders

Ford grabbed his first touchdown of the season last week and ended the game with 105 receiving yards.

Ford's future is very much up in the air, as he is only averaging 13.7 yards per reception with only 219 yards so far this season.


However, Carson Palmer has only started the past two games for the Raiders.

If Palmer can continue to get the ball to Ford more successfully than Jason Campbell could, than Ford could become a reliable option.


Week 9 Results

Player Receptions Yards Touchdowns
Early Doucet 6 78 0
James Jones 1 21 1
Steve Breaston 7 115 0
Jon Baldwin 1 12 0
Greg Salas 7 59


Doucet and Jones performed as expected.

Breaston had an incredible game, but it's unfortunate that he couldn't find the end zone.

Baldwin was completely overshadowed by Breaston, and it's disappointing that he only had one reception all game.

The fact that the Chiefs failed to score more than a single field goal really destroyed Baldwin's chances of having a good game.

Greg Salas was targeted a good amount and had some decent yardage last week. Unfortunately, he broke his leg and is now out for the remainder of the season.
