Week Ten Fantasy Football Rankings FREEBIE: Frank Stampfl Fantasy Football Rankings

Make sure to use the RotoExperts Projections and Rankings to have your best lineups this week!

“Just when you think you have all the answers, I change the questions.” RIP Rowdy Roddy Piper. This should forever be the motto for Fantasy Football rankings. It seems like whenever there is an obvious spot for a player or team to go off, we’re let down. I’ll give you a prime example: Drew Brees at home against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10. He finished 32-45 for 287 yards and no touchdowns. In fact, the entire Saints offense did not score a touchdown in Week 10 against the Falcons’ porous defense. How rare was that? It was the first time the Saints offense failed to score an offensive touchdown with Drew Brees as their quarterback. In other words, it was pretty damn rare. While it’s that type of unpredictability that makes Fantasy Football so maddening, we also had Darius Slayton go off for 10-121-2, finishing as the WR2 overall. Good times! With all that being said… WE’RE PICKING ON THE FALCONS DEFENSE AGAIN THIS WEEK!

Truth be told, Kyle Allen is better than Drew Brees. Alright, maybe not, but I do like this spot for Allen, especially if you have a quarterback on bye this week. The Falcons defense has been a pass funnel all season because of a few reasons: first, their secondary is well below average. Second, they’ve actually been really good against the run this year. Heading into the season, the Falcons were annually terrible against pass-catching running backs. While they’ve rectified that, they’ve struggled big-time against wide receivers and tight ends. Enter Kyle Allen in Week 11. Yes, the Falcons limited Brees last week but they allowed multiple touchdown passes in every game from Weeks 3-8. They’re currently allowing the third-most Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Allen’s a borderline QB1 in this matchup.

I may be the only Jordan Howard fan left in the world but he’s playing well with the Philadelphia Eagles at the moment. Everybody wants Miles Sanders to be a thing but the truth remains: Doug Pederson likes to use multiple running backs. Now maybe that changes coming out of the bye week but I can’t ignore what Howard has done. Over the past two games, Howard is averaging 21 carries and 89 rushing yards per game with two total touchdowns. He’s a Top-20 running back in half-PPR leagues this year! While the Patriots defense might seem vaunted, they’ve struggled against the run. Over the past five weeks, they’ve allowed 5.3 yards per carry to opposing running backs, the third-most in the NFL. Assuming he’s healthy and good to go (limited with a shoulder today), Howard is a solid RB2 in this spot. If you’re in need of a sneaky flex this week, turn to Raheem Mostert of the San Francisco 49ers. Matt Breida is expected to miss Week 11 and has played on 32-percent of the team’s snaps this season, second-most among their running backs. Considering the 49ers run the ball 53.2-percent of the time this season (most in the NFL), I would expect Mostert to get 10-12 touches. The Arizona Cardinals are allowing 4.31 yards per carry to opposing running backs this season and are 21st in run defense DVOA. More like Raheem Must-Start, am I right?

If the New York Jets are a dumpster fire, Jamison Crowder is the FDNY. He’s been the one bright spot for the team over the past couple of weeks. He’s scored in back-to-back games, exceeding 80 yards in each of those. Since Sam Darnold returned in Week 6, Crowder leads the Jets with 21-percent of their target share and 69.2 PPR points. Nice. Washington’s secondary has played better over the past month but that won’t deter me in this spot. The Jets offensive line is a terrible one, which forces Sam Darnold to target those short-intermediate routes. That’s Crowder’s wheelhouse. On top of everything else, it’s a #RevengeGame for Crowder. He’s a WR2 in this matchup. Just behind him in my ranks, you’ll find Mohamed Sanu, one of the newer members of the New England Patriots. I’m not sure why he’s ranked so low around the industry this week but I’m fine being the high guy on him. The Patriots gave up a second-round pick for Sanu. That tells me they have big plans for him. Guess what? That’s exactly what they did back in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens. Sanu finished with 10-81-1 on 14 targets. That’s a 30-percent target share! Additionally, Sanu and the Patriots face the Eagles this week, a defense allowing the second-most PPR points to outside wide receivers this season. I think Sanu is in line for another great game and should be viewed as a low-end WR2.
