Week 10 was full of fascinating and intriguing match-ups, with many great teams going head-to-head.  As the Raiders earned themselves another victory, and the Dallas Cowboys blew out the Bills for a well-needed win, rising young stars such as Titans WR Damian Williams and Cowboys WR Laurent Robinson played a huge role in their respective teams winning efforts. 

At a position where its hard to keep consistent players in your starting lineup, the waiver-wire may be a good place to look for a striving receiver instead of continuously trying to manage with what you have.   

The following players are three of the most available and promising receivers available in a majority of fantasy football leagues.


Denarius Moore, Oakland Raiders

Denarius Moore is a rookie receiver out of the University of Tennessee, who has already exhibited great speed and athleticism at the professional level.  Moore is only owned by 31.5%, but fantasy owners are taking notice quick.  After his five receptions for 146 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2, Moore was placed on the fantasy radar early but quickly fizzled after little to no production in the following weeks.  Well, it seems as if Moore has made an early connection with Carson Palmer, making a total of nine catches for 184 yards and two touchdowns in his last two performances.  Moore should continue to produce in the upcoming weeks, with the Raiders having one of the best running games in the NFL this season and a fairly favorable schedule from here on out.

Damian Williams, Tennessee Titans

Damian Williams has been very productive of late, contributing in big ways to Tennessee's last three games.  With a total of four touchdowns on the season, Williams is really starting to become comfortable in the NFL in his second year, already scoring more and earning more yards than last season.  Williams is available in nearly every league out there, only owned by 1.8% of fantasy teams.


Laurent Robinson, Dallas Cowboys

Laurent Robinson has been on absolute fire of late, scoring at least one touchdown in each of the last three games.  Only owned by 13.1 fantasy teams, Robinson is an easy add in most leagues and should be a no-brainer by now, especially after his two touchdown performance against the Buffalo Bills.  Earning a total of 44 fantasy points in the last three weeks, make sure you snag Laurent Robinson while you can.  Because with the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins on Dallas' upcoming schedule, he won't be available for long.
