With A.J. Green down, a new receiver could emerge for the Bengals.

It’s time for another round of waiver wire moves to make in hopes of boosting your fantasy football team with the postseason inching closer.

Fantasy Football Week 10 Adds

Bengals WR John Ross

A bombshell dropped Sunday that AJ Green is likely going to miss multiple games, if not more due to a foot issue. Tyler Boyd is already producing a lot in this offense, while John Ross has fallen by the wayside a bit due to his groin injury. But Ross is expected to return soon, possibly this week against the Saints, and he’ll have a higher usage rate while Green is out. Ross is worth taking a flyer on as long as Green is out.

Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman

With Demaryius Thomas now in Houston, we knew there was going to be a pass-catcher stepping up in Denver. But while everyone assumed it would be Courtland Sutton, it was actually Jeff Heuerman who had his breakout game against the Texans, catching 10 passes on 11 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown. He actually has two scores over the last two games. He’s a strong target for those who need tight end help.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay

With Golden Tate now with the Eagles, Kenny Golladay is going to be a stronger fantasy option in the Lions’ receiving group. We didn’t see much of that Sunday against the Vikings, but that was mainly because the Lions allowed a whopping 10 sacks. That’s not going to keep up, and Golladay should become a bigger contributor with Tate out of the mix. Pick up Golladay if you’re in need of receiver help.

Bengals RB Giovani Bernard

When healthy, Giovani Bernard is one of the best handcuffs fantasy owners can have. While he plays behind Joe Mixon, Bernard has shown he can make an impact in PPR leagues even in a backup role. However, his recent injuries have led to many owners dropping him during the Bengals’ bye week. As of Sunday, Bernard is available in 54 percent of CBS leagues. He’s expected to return soon following the bye, so go add Bernard if you need running back depth and/or you’re already a Mixon owner.

Washington WR Maurice Harris

Washington has struggled to find a consistent go-to receiver this season. Did Maurice Harris finally become just that on Sunday? Against the Falcons, Harris racked up 10 catches on 12 targets for 124 yards. However, he came into the game with just 11 grabs for 102 yards on the season. If you need receivers in deeper leagues, Harris is someone to consider.

Fantasy Football Week 10 Drops

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor

It’s already been a rough stretch for Agholor, who has just nine catches for 69 yards over the last two games and has just one score on the season. Now, Golden Tate is joining the group, and with Alshon Jeffery already getting plenty of targets, there’s no room for Agholor to remain fantasy relevant.

Ravens RB Javorius Allen

At one point, it looked like Javorius Allen might be passing Alex Collins for the No. 1 running back spot. However, Allen has fallen out of favor recently, as he has just five carries for 10 yards over the last four games. He has caught 14 passes during that span, but they’ve only gone for 66 yards and one score. That’s not cutting it, and it doesn’t help that Gus Edwards has played more recently (15 carries over last four games). You can safely drop Allen.
