Zach Pascal Steps Right into Top-WR Role for Colts, Week 10 Waiver Wire Priority

With TY Hilton sidelined, Zach Pascal immediately stepped into the Colts top-WR role and thrived. He hauled in 5-of-6 targets for 76 yards and a score, and now has 25.6 and 16.1 Half PPR FP days in two of his last three since the Bye. Hilton is expected to miss at least 2-3 more contests, giving Pascal legitimate WR3 fantasy upside. He should be the Week 10 Waiver Wire priority for WR-needy owners.

This is especially true since Pascal has a Downy-soft sandwich of upcoming games. The Dolphins surrender the 5th most FPs to WRs, the Jaguars the 20th, and then the Texans the third. Considering the bevy of Bye Weeks coming up, Pascal is a highly viable as a streamer.

Pascal seems to be the top option here, as he led the team in targets (6) and snaps (66). Despite a lesser college pedigree, Pascal has a long 6’2″ frame and At only 20% owned, Pascal is the top WR waiver target of Week 10. I’d bid $15-20, minimum, if in a desperate “Win-Now” mode with Bye Week holes.

Still, with the aforementioned cupcake schedule, other weapons are viable here. Parris Campbell (3% owned) came in second with 5 targets and 45 snaps. While he didn’t score, Frank Reich clearly made Campbell a focal point. He racked up 5 catches, 53 yards, as well as 3 carries for 27. Campbell’s the most explosive weapon here, and should lift the lid of these shaky defenses. Chester Rogers hauled in a TD, but he’d be the distant third option here.

Positively, Brian Hoyer sustained the passing attack admirably. All weapons will remain viable in the right matchups whether or not Jacoby Brissett’s knee injury lingers.
