Another week of fantasy football action is in the books, as owners everywhere scour the waiver wire to find the best available wide receiver pickups. Looking around the league shows that players like Curtis Samuel and Jalen Reagor offer the best chance of positive performance in the coming weeks.

Note that, in order to be eligible for this list, the player needed to be available in at least 50% of fantasy leagues.

Curtis Samuel, Jalen Reagor Highlight Fantasy Football Week 10 Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups

Curtis Samuel

Entering the season, I was one of the biggest conductors of the D.J. Moore hype train. Unfortunately, that hype train derailed thanks to the emergence of Robby Anderson and now Curtis Samuel. Samuel has apparently usurped Moore on the depth chart, recording nine receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown. This wasn’t a one-week fluke, as Samuel also outperformed Moore back in Week 8.

Samuel is an incredibly talented and underrated receiver that would’ve easily hit the 1,000-yard plateau last year if Kyle Allen could throw an accurate deep ball. First-year head coach Joe Judge seems to have realized this, as Samuel’s workload has dramatically increased over the past two weeks. He makes plays at all levels of the field and even receives goal line carries. Assuming this usage continues, he should be a WR2 for the remainder of the year.

Jalen Reagor

The Philadelphia Eagles need some reliable wide receivers, and Jalen Reagor is the man for the job. Selected in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Reagor has battled injury throughout the majority of the season. However, he has made plays when healthy and, fresh off the bye, should be ready for a massive second half.

Reagor made his return to the field in Week 8, recording three receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown on six targets. While that production isn’t anything special, it’s worth noting that he played in 73% of the snaps. Travis Fulgham will still be the top option in this offense, but Reagor should see plenty of snaps and targets throughout this contest. Reagor has the perfect combination of talent and opportunity and should be rostered in all formats.

KJ Hamler

Normally, wide receivers need a season or two before they’re ready to consistently contribute in the NFL. However, this draft class is proving to be the exception to the rule. Second-round pick KJ Hamler flashed his talent at various points throughout the season but appears ready to take his game to another level. Facing off against the Atlanta Falcons, the Penn State product finished his night with six receptions for 75 yards on 10 targets. His role should only continue to grow as he becomes more comfortable in the offense, and he’s playing in what should be a high-scoring affair against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Michael Pittman

Jalen Reagor and KJ Hamler aren’t the only talented rookie receivers on this list. Like Reagor, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman is a talented rookie that missed a large portion of the season to injury. Also like Reagor, Pittman is now healthy and ready to take his game to another level. In Week 9, Pittman recorded four receptions for 56 yards on a team-high seven targets.

With T.Y. Hilton struggling to develop chemistry with Philip Rivers, Pittman has the opportunity to be the top option in this passing attack moving forward. This will be a run-centric offense, so there is a ceiling to Pittman’s potential. However, if you’re playing in a deep league and looking for a widely available receiver, you could do a lot worse than Pittman.
