I didn’t get to experience the civic joy of voting. No, I’m not under age or some registered government index; I’m just a simple Canadian, who after consuming six months of unrelenting coverage, ended up caring more about this election than any that has taken place in my homeland. Ever. Maybe it’s my belief that Carrie Mathison had some hand in the outcome. So, to compensate, I’ve send out the ballots for a Week 10 Fantasy Election. It’s all I got!
And the Candidates are:
Lance Moore, Brian Hartline, Malcom Floyd, Hakeem Nicks or Emmanuel Sanders?
I’m rolling the dice on Malcom Floyd. With the Bucs offense scoring on every drive, Philip Rivers is going to have no other option than to bomb it down field to his best vertical receiver. – Pat Mayo
Hakeem Nicks: Moving Forward! – Gregg Sussman
Nicks is hurting again, and Floyd and Moore have been unreliable. I will go with Hartline, I like his matchup. – Scott Engel
Hartline. No. 1 WR against the Titans. You gotta think Nicks will come through one of these weeks, though. – Adam Zdroik
Moore. Though he saw a dip in targets last week, that should change vs. potent Falcons offense Sunday. Philip Rivers is boring, which makes Floyd boring. Nicks is dead to Fantasy owners right now. Jerricho Cotchery will take some looks away from Sanders and Mike Wallace may just get all the love. And Brian Hartline, contrary to the opinion of some, is no stud. – Jennifer Millman
Moore. – Lou Maione
Dr. Roto chooses the delegate from the great state of Florida: Brian Hartline. – Dr. Roto
Think Nicks’ breakout game is coming but it may not be until after NYG bye. I’d go Hartline in a nice matchup. – Jake Ciely
Alex Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Russell Wilson, Ryan Tannehill or Joe Flacco?
THE FITZMAGIC IS BACK!!! It’s hard not to trust 8 TDs and 1026 yards in his last three against New England. – Pat Mayo
Ryan Tannehill: His wife would make a good first lady. – Gregg Sussman
Smith is steady and Wilson usually plays well at home, but have to go with Fitzpatrick against that New England secondary, as Aqib Talib won’t make an impact just yet. – Scott Engel
Fitzpatrick. Usually has a pretty decent game against the Patriots and they will be passing plenty. – Adam Zdroik
Fitzpatrick, but only if your league doesn’t penalize too much for INTs. He threw a season-high 4 TDs (also 4 INTs) against the Pats in Week 4 and likely will be throwing a lot again as Bills struggle to keep up. Second option is Tannehill. He’s been playing well. Despite their season woes, Jets secondary is not that horrendous, which is why Russell Wilson sits here. – Jennifer Millman
Wilson. – Lou Maione
Ryan Fitzpatrick is Dr. Roto’s write-in candidate. – Dr. Roto
All are fliers, so I’ll swing for the fences with Tannehill, as he has the best matchup. Wilson’s matchup is terrible, Flacco disappoints, so does Smith and Fitz always a big risk, even vs NE. – Jake Ciely
Felix Jones, Pierre Thomas Issac Redman, Jonathan Stewart or Fred Jackson?
I’m doubling down on the Bills. Fred Jackson has been kryptonite to the Pats defense, averaging 111 total yards in his last three with New England. – Pat Mayo
Pierre Thomas: Despite being a relative of the French, Pierre is a good start without Darren Sproles again. Will again lead the Saints in touches. – Gregg Sussman
Jackson is the only one of that group who may not be mediocre this week; he should score. – Scott Engel
Felix. The rest of those guys are toss ups and are in more split situations. – Adam Zdroik
Redman if the rest of the RBs on the Steelers carousel sit out. If Jonathan Dwyer plays as expected, go Freddy. Catches enough passes to make him viable start even with C.J. Spiller sharing touches. Fitzpatrick relies on both RBs in pass game. – Jennifer Millman
Jones. – Lou Maione
These guys are here more for absentee ballots than anything, but I will go with Fred Jackson. – Dr. Roto
Let’s see: always risk to get hurt, shares with a million others, could lose job in game to Dwyer, lead RB in poor run offense or split carry RB in bad matchup… I’ll go with Redman and hope he holds off Dwyer vs. a weak KC team. – Jake Ciely
Brandon Myers, Brandon Pettigrew, Anthony Fasano, Dustin Keller or Brent Celek?
Pettigrew has actually been extremely consistent five the past six weeks – for the position at least. And he did churn out a 7 catch, 67 yard performance against the Vikes in Week 4. – Pat Mayo
Brandon Pettigrew: The WR corps is beat up; this is a guy I like this week. – Gregg Sussman
Don’t like the matchups for Celek and Keller. Myers is the safest in a PPR. Can’t trust Pettigrew. – Scott Engel
Myers. This is the toughest call, but Myers is getting a ton of targets, so sticking with him. – Adam Zdroik
Myers, but it’s close between him and Allen. Those two TDs last week were Myers’ first of season, but he consistently catches passes. Had a season-high 13 targets last week, and if Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson both sit, I expect Raiders to pass even more. As for Allen, he’s seeing increased targets with no Coby Fleener, and Andrew Luck likes to throw the ball a lot. The Jags don’t exactly have a vaunted secondary. – Jennifer Millman
Keller. – Lou Maione
Myers is like a favorite son in all PPR leagues. – Dr. Roto
Been driving the Myers bandwagon for a few weeks now. Ain’t pulling over now. – Jake Ciely
Will Marcel Reece score more than 8 points in [a] standard scoring, [b] 12 points in PPR scoring?
Yes and super yes. It’s Reece’s turn! – Pat Mayo
Ohhh prop bets! I love these. YES HE CAN! YES HE CAN! (And Will.) – Gregg Sussman
No – Jones will get more quality touches. No – the guy is pure fullback with no upside. – Scott Engel
I expect him to get a goal line TD. Jones will get more carries, but unlikely near the red zone. That said, yes and yes. I’ll say around 5 catches for Reece. – Adam Zdroik
No and yes. – Jennifer Millman
Just B. – Lou Maione
Yes, and absolutely. – Dr. Roto
No on both with the news that Taiwan Jones starting with the coach’s confidence. Then again, that situation is such mess that being wrong wouldn’t shock me. – Jake Ciely
