The Roto Superstar’s Week 10 Starts and Sits, Lineup Rankings

The Roto Superstar’s Week 10 Starts and Sits, Lineup Rankings premium

Woo and Boo: Your start and sit recommendations for Week 10

Woo

QB

Mitch Trubisky vs. Detroit Lions

Facing a Detroit Lions defense that has allowed multiple touchdown passes in all but two games on the season makes this a plus matchup for Trubisky. The Bears offense is starting to find a sense of rhythm and in a game that could go back and forth, look for Trubisky to take advantage. If you are in need of a streaming option due to the bye week, you could do worse than the Bears’ quarterback. Low-end QB1 numbers are in store in Week 10 to the tune of 280 yards and at least two touchdowns. If he’s available in your league, pick him up and plug him in.

Baker Mayfield vs. Atlanta Falcons

Another solid spot start in Week 10 is the matchup that Baker Mayfield has against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons defense has allowed a 300-yard passer in three straight games and with the weapons the Browns have on offense, Mayfield can easily make that four straight. I expect to see Mayfield play from behind for most of this game, leading to a 300-yard, two touchdown performance on Sunday, easily putting him in the QB1 talk for Week 10.

RB

Dion Lewis vs. New England Patriots

Lewis has put up back-to-back strong performances and now gets the “revenge game” against his former team in the Patriots in Week 10. The Patriots defense has been pretty stout all season long against opposing running backs (17.72 Fantasy PPG). Recently, however, the Patriots have shown that they can be had by elusive, pass catching backs like Lewis. Don’t be shocked to see the Titans showcase Lewis in this game leading to an RB2 type of stat line from Lewis. I can see 110 total yards with five receptions and a score.

Duke Johnson vs. Atlanta Falcons

After a big nine-catch game in Week Nine, the matchup against the Atlanta Falcons could not come at a better time for Duke Johnson. The Falcons have surrendered the most catches to running backs in the league, so look for the Browns to get Johnson the ball in space here. If Johnson gets through this game with less than seven catches, I would be shocked. Plug him into your Flex spot in PPR formats this week, as he should fill up the stat box with receptions.

WR

Larry Fitzgerald @ Kansas City Chiefs

Fitzgerald has scored in two straight games and seems to be developing a rapport with Josh Rosen. In Week 10, he will draw a matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs defense that, on paper, would seem like a sure-fire start. But this defense has been surprisingly stingy against opposing wide receivers (only two touchdowns in the previous six games). But, something tells me that Fitzgerald finds success in this matchup and gets into the end-zone yet again, making him a solid player to plug in as a WR3 this week.

Tyrell Williams @ Oakland Raiders

Speaking of players on touchdown scoring streaks, Tyrell Williams has scored in three straight games. He gets a matchup against an Oakland Raiders defense that has allowed multiple scores in two of the last three games to opposing receivers. With the Raiders likely to be focused on shutting down Melvin Gordon, the receivers will see soft coverage and I expect that Williams takes full advantage. He is another player worth a start as a WR3 in standard scoring leagues more than PPR. His catch total likely won’t wow you, but a long scoring play can easily make up for that.

TE

C.J. Uzomah vs. New Orleans Saints

Uzomah has been a forgotten man over the last two games in this offense, but now, with the injury to A.J. Green, he has the chance to be involved yet again. The Saints’ defense has been tough for opposing tight ends to score on this season, but that trend could be broken in this game. The Bengals will be trailing and in dire need of players to catch the ball outside of Tyler Boyd. If you stream at the position, or need a bye week filler, Uzomah is a guy you should target.

DEF

San Francisco 49ers vs. New York Giants

The 49ers’ defense has looked somewhat decent throughout the 2018 season and will get a plus matchup against a Giants offense that tends to struggle on the road. I expect to see the front seven of the 49ers really get after Eli Manning, leading to a few sacks and the inevitable turnovers from Manning. Not a bad defense to stream this week.

Boo

QB

Russell Wilson @ Los Angeles Rams

Although his scoring has been picking up lately, Wilson has yet to throw for 330 yards in a game this season. I don’t expect to see that changing in his matchup against the Rams. This defense will be bringing the pressure all day on Wilson, limiting his time to throw, which means a lot of short area passing. Wilson may indeed get into the end-zone once or twice in this game, but if you are expecting big numbers, you may want to look elsewhere.

Matthew Stafford @ Chicago Bears

Stafford has had an up and down year so far in 2018, with one week being a QB1 level player then the next not being roster worthy. This week he goes on the road to play the tough Bears’ defense. I expect to see Stafford have a rough game in this one and if you have other options to use in your lineups, I would pivot in that direction.

RB

Doug Martin vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Two games in as the starting running back for the Raiders, Martin has been the plodding runner that we saw in Tampa. In Week 10, the Raiders face a Chargers defense that is middle of the pack in points allowed to opposing runners (18.88 Fantasy PPG). Odds are that the game-script will not be in Martin’s favor, limiting his chances for scoring. Let Martin find a safe space on your bench this week.

LeSean McCoy @ New York Jets

McCoy has exactly 24 yards in his last 24 rushing attempts. That may be all you need to know about whether or not you should play McCoy anytime soon, much less in a matchup against a strong Jets defense. There are other options to pivot to here.

WR

Sammy Watkins vs. Arizona Cardinals

Watkins has been a strong play recently in this Chiefs offense, but he left last week’s game injured and could miss Week 10. Keep an eye on practice reports throughout the remainder of the week and be prepared to plug in another player in his spot.

Dez Bryant @ Cincinnati Bengals

Everyone is pretty excited about the signing of Dez Bryant in New Orleans, but if you have him on your roster, Week 10 will not be the time to play him. He will need time to adjust to his new surroundings, not to mention the pecking order in terms of targets for the Saints. Bryant will likely be useless in Fantasy for at least a couple of weeks, so look elsewhere for your deep dive play this week.

TE

Eric Ebron vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

With Jack Doyle back and fully healthy, Ebron is back to getting his typical three or four receptions a game. If you are starting him, you are essentially hoping for a touchdown to salvage the player and in a potential low scoring game against the Jaguars, Ebron may not be the best option to go with in Week 10.

DEF

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Indianapolis Colts

On the topic of the Jaguars, this is just not the same defense that we were used to seeing a year ago. This game against the Colts could prove to get them back on track, but this Colts offense is actually playing quite well. Andrew Luck is capable of getting points on the board in a big way and that could be the case in this matchup. It’s hard to take the risk if there are better options on the board, especially if you are fighting for your playoff hopes in Week 10.
