We’re excited, week 10 is here and we are coming off a great week 9. This week brings us some different challenges and ideas for roster construction. We really like the value at running back this week and we are looking to take full advantage of the opportunity to pay up at other positions. Now let’s look at this weeks plays. Remember to keep up with late news on injuries coming in and check back here for any adds or drops from our list.
We’re targeting a small group at the QB position this week. Mahomes is always a strong play and continues to put up numbers every week. My favorite play of the week is Philip Rivers. He has a great matchup against a terrible Raiders defense and Rivers’ floor this season is 250+ yards and 2 touchdowns. Russell Wilson is going to have to throw the ball a ton today in order to keep up with a high powered Rams’ offense. So we like Wilson to have a strong day fantasy wise.
As we said in our opening, we love the value at running back this week. This value will allow us to get studs at wide receiver and tight end. My favorite play of the week is, Tevin Coleman. The Browns have been getting shredded by good running backs with teams with a strong running game. Just look at James Conner and Kareem Hunt’s numbers from the last 2 weeks against the Browns. Take advantage of the Saints run game this week as we think they will lean heavily on the run, playing on the road. I also love Deion Lewis this week, playing against his former team and becoming the main back in Tennessee. Cleveland backs are in a great position this week going up against a Falcons defense that gives up tons of yards to running backs. I also love Aaron Jones and his great matchup against Miami. My favorite cheap play this week is, Spencer Ware. He is becoming more involved in the Chiefs’ passing game and should be a factor if the Chiefs get a big lead.
I want high end studs at wide receiver this week. We’re paying up here and looking to take advantage of some excellent matchups. Josh Gordon is my favorite play this week. He has gotten double digit targets the last two weeks and he will continue to be a big part of the Patriots’ offense. Plus, he will destroy Malcom Butler, who should be covering him for the majority of the game. I also love Julio Jones and Keenan Allen this week. Both have excellent matchups and should have strong days. My favorite cheap play this week is, Danny Amendola. Brock has leaned on him since taking over at QB and I like Amendola to continue his strong role in the Dolphins’ passing game.
*Calvin Ridley- Cleveland has a lot of injuries in the defensive back field.
Pay up here and don’t mess around. I love Kelce again this week and O.J. Howard is a great option as well.
Call me crazy, but I’m playing the Buccaneers every where this week. They are cheap and the Redskins could have up to 4 starting offensive linemen out this week. That’s huge trouble for any offense, regardless of how bad the defense they are facing is.
