NFL Fantasy Football Week 10: Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em And FanDuel Picks

Welcome to Week 10!

For standard leagues, I’ll pick some players outside the top 10 and 15 who I think will play well as well as some higher rated players who I see underachieving using the ESPN rankings. I’ve got my FanDuel picks at the bottom.

Last week, I was on vacation.  Let’s get to this week’s picks.


  • Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton:  This is a gut feel that off a big win they will struggle on the road.
  • Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer:  I see Seattle clamping down in a low scoring game at home.
  • Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson:  He has been average at best and now sees a top 5 defense.
  • New York Jets RB Chris Ivory:  He has been average at best since the hamstring injury and the short week will be a tough test.
  • Oakland Raiders RB Latavious Murray:  He went out with a concussion and may not play a ton if any.
  • Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Lankford:  He was great last week but a much stiffer test awaits in ST Louis.
  • New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall:  Another injured guy off the short week, I do not expect 100 yards.
  • Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin:  He is off the bye but the Denver Broncos defense will look to make a statement after last week’s debacle.
  • Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham:  See my note on Wilson, same goes here.


  • New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick:  The Buffalo Bills pass defense is shaky at best and I can see him have a top 10 week.
  • Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning:  He played pretty well the last 2 weeks and with the Chiefs tough run defense, I think they have to throw to win.
  • Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco:  The best streamer of the week playing the Jaguars at home.
  • Green Bay Packers RB James Starks:  He now is the starter and a perfect run defense to play against.
  • Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J Yeldon:  This is about volume, hardly any RB’s are getting his volume.
  • Kansas City Cheifs RB Chacandrick West:  The same reasoning as I have for T.J Yeldon.
  • New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks:  He is now a top 20 WR over the whole season and Drew Brees is forcing the ball to him.
  • New England Patriots WR Branden LaFell:  Tom Brady is getting him 8 targets or more plus a spicy opponent in the New York Giants.
  • Green Bay Packers WR DaVonte Adams:  He is back as the WR2 in a week they may throw a ton.
  • Green Bay Packers TE Richard ROdgers:  He is td deendant but is a top 10 TE.

Here are my FanDuel picks for the week where I will give some higher and lower salaries I like at each position. As you will see, I will be focusing on the defenses to pick on:


  • Washington Redskins QB Krik Cousins $6,500
  • Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford $7,300
  • Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco $7,500
  • Jacksonville Jaguars QB $7,800
