Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Pittsburgh Steelers superstar Antonio Brown leads my top 50 fantasy football wide receiver rankings for Week 10.

With other pass catchers, including Michael Crabtree, Amari Cooper and Alshon Jeffery, shut down with Week 10 byes, it's important to make the correct decisions at this spot in your lineup. But the mega bye weeks have passed, so you might not be as affected by the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles resting this week.

Julio Jones, A.J. Green, Brandin Cooks and Michael Thomas round out my top 5 options at the position.

Here are my Top 50 options at the position this week.

TOP 50 WEEK 10 RANKINGS BELOW

TOP SHELF

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown should have a huge week against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts are allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game and second-most receiving yards to opposing wide receivers. Brown has found the end zone in two of his last three games against much better defenses. Look for, at least, one more score in this one.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin is my No. 6 wide receiver for Week 10. He is facing an Arizona Cardinals defense Thursday night that is allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Baldwin is coming off of his best game of the season, when he had 108 yards and a score on seven catches against the Washington Redskins. Russell Wilson is also playing like one of the best quarterbacks in football. Look for another big day against this struggling secondary.

SNEAKY PLAYS

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is my No. 13 option for Week 10. Hilton and the Colts face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. The Steelers boast one of the top secondaries in football, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. But don't let that deter you from benching this stud. Hilton is coming off of his best game of the season. Last week against the Houston Texans he went off for 175 yards and two scores on five catches. It was his third performance of at least 150 receiving yards this season. I don't expect him to post an effort like that, but he should find the end zone here.

Sterling Shepard is my No. 21 wide receiver for Week 10. Shepard and the New York Giants are traveling to face the San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco is allowing the sixth-most receiving yards and fourth-most touchdowns to opposing wide receivers. Shepard is a low-end WR2 for me in this matchup. I also think Eli Manning has a big game.

LONGSHOTS

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson receives a slight boost this weekend because of the one-game suspension handed to Mike Evans. He is a low-end WR2 this week because of the increased workload he is expected to receive. The Buccaneers are facing the New York Jets, a defense allowing the eighth-most fantasy points per game, second-most touchdowns and fourth-most receptions to opposing wide receivers. Jackson is my No. 24 receiver this week.

New York Jets pass catcher Robby Anderson has scored a touchdown in three consecutive games. This week he is facing a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game and fifth-most receiving yards to opposing wide receivers. Anderson comes in as my No. 25 option for the Week, putting him in WR2 consideration.
