  • Matthew Stafford Unlikely To Play In Week 10

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (concussion) is not expected to clear protocol ahead of Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. If the veteran is indeed inactive, John Wolford would draw the start. Now 27 years old, Wolford's lone NFL start came back in 2020 when he completed 22 passes for 231 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. He also rushed for 56 yards in that contest. This development does not bode well for Los Angeles' playmakers, especially its pass-catchers.

  • Skepticism Surrounding Kyler Murray's Week 10 Status

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) is expected to be a game-time decision on Sunday afternoon, but he's trending in the wrong direction. A source "expressed skepticism" to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler about Murray's status for Week 10, adding that backup Colt McCoy is prepared to start if necessary. In such a scenario, McCoy would rank as a high-end QB3 in fantasy football.

  • Elijah Mitchell Officially Activated From Injured Reserve

    San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) has been activated from injured reserve. He is expected to be active Sunday, serving as Christian McCaffrey's backup. The 24-year-old rushed six times for 41 yards back in Week 1 before exiting due to injury. Although he won't be the featured back in San Francisco's offense, Mitchell will likely be used in a change-of-pace role, making him an RB4 in fantasy football.

  • Byron Pringle Activated On Saturday

    Chicago Bears wide receiver Byron Pringle (calf) has been activated off the injured reserve on Saturday. The 29-year-old last played in Week 3 and has been on the IR with a calf injury since then. The return of Pringle does give the Bears a slight boost on offense. However, the arrival of Chase Claypool will likely take away most of the value Pringle would've had in this offense. The Bears have a crowded wide receiver corps and don't pass the ball often to warrant rostering Pringle in any fantasy formats right now.

  • Josh Allen In Line To Play Against Vikings

    Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen (elbow) is expected to make the start against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10. The superstar signal-caller has been dealing with an elbow sprain, which has put his status in question for Sunday's game. However, the organization decided not to elevate Matt Barkley to the active roster. That means, Allen is likely to suit up for this upcoming contest with Case Keenum resuming his role as the primary backup. The Bills are likely going to wait until after warmups to make a final announcement. However, fantasy managers should expect Allen out there unless he suffers a setback during pre-game workouts.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Is A Game-Time Decision

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is looking like a game-time decision for the Week 10 matchup against the Green Bay Packers. It sounds like the team wants to see how Elliott responds during pre-game workouts before they make a final decision. The 27-year-old missed the Week 8 contest before Dallas had a bye in Week 9. Tony Pollard would be in line for another start, assuming Elliott is unable to play. Pollard would have RB1 value without Elliott on the field. Fantasy managers will have to check back closer to game time on Sunday.

  • Treylon Burks Activated From Injured Reserve

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (toe) has been activated off the injured reserve on Saturday. The expectation was the Burks would make his return this week after missing the last four games with a turf toe issue. The Titans offense has been missing the rookie's presence on offense. Sadly for him, Burks has a tough matchup against the Denver Broncos defense in Week 10. It's uncertain if he'll be limited during his first game back. Fantasy managers should consider Burks a low-end flex option this week.

  • Ryan Tannehill Expected To Play In Week 10

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is expected to suit up for the Week 10 matchup against the Denver Broncos. The veteran signal-caller has missed each of the last two games, but was able to practice this week. Tannehill was close to playing last week, but the team decided to take the cautious approach. Fantasy managers should expect Tannehill back under center this week, assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Rookie Malik Willis would head back to the bench after making the last two starts. Tannehill would be a low-end QB2, assuming he does play on Sunday.

  • Bills Elevate CB Xavier Rhodes, RB Duke Johnson From Practice Squad; No QB Elevated

    Two veterans that have been stashed on the Bills practice squad are set to make their season debuts for the team this week. Buffalo has elevated cornerback Xavier Rhodes and running back Duke Johnson for this weekend’s matchup against the Vikings. The Bills are extremely deep at cornerback, but an injury to first-round rookie Kaiir […]

    The Steelers have been looking forward to the return of star pass rusher T.J.

The team has also officially activated Watt from IR and placed cornerback […]

    The Browns did a bit of roster shuffling this morning.

  • Eric Stokes Likely Lost For The Season

    Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters on Friday that cornerback Eric Stokes (ankle, knee) is likely done for the rest of the year after getting injured in the Week 9 loss to the Detroit Lions. It's probably a formality that the Packers will eventually place the 23-year-old on Injured Reserve, which is a considerable blow to their secondary moving forward. If Stokes is indeed done for the rest of the season, he'll finish 2022 with 26 tackles (21 solo) in nine games played in his second NFL campaign. He was a first-round selection in 2021. The Packers defense also lost starting outside linebacker Rashan Gary to a season-ending knee injury in the same contest last week. Stokes has started a total of 23 games since entering the league last year.

  • Budda Baker Up In The Air For Week 10

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he had been told earlier in the week there was a "zero percent" chance of safety Budda Baker (ankle) playing in Week 10 against the division-rival Los Angeles Rams. Baker was able to practice this week, but the team will be "really smart" before deciding if he'll suit up on Sunday. The 26-year-old is officially listed as questionable. If Baker gets the green light to play, there's a good chance he'll be on a snap count as the Cardinals play it safe with the four-time Pro Bowl safety. Entering Week 10, he ranks as the No. 15 fantasy defensive back in IDP formats. If you've been using Baker as your starting DB in those leagues, you'll want to have another option at the ready.

  • T.J. Watt Returning In Week 10, Won't Be On Snap Count

    Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro linebacker T.J. Watt (pectoral) said he will play in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints and doesn't expect to be on a snap count. Pittsburgh will likely officially activate Watt from the Injured Reserve on Saturday. The 28-year-old reigning Defensive Player of the Year will be a gigantic boost to the Steelers defense against a Saints offense that isn't scaring anyone. Watt is an absolute game-wrecker with an endless motor on defense, and he should be returned to starting IDP lineups immediately. Before getting hurt in the season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, he had six solo tackles, a sack, three tackles for loss, a QB hit, two passes defensed and an interception. The dude can do it all.

  • Elijah Mitchell To Return Against Chargers

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) will be activated from Injured Reserve before the Week 10 game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night. Mitchell led the Niners in rushing in 2021 as a rookie and entered the 2022 campaign as their lead back, but it didn't last long after he was injured in the season opener. Now with Christian McCaffrey as San Fran's leading rusher out of the backfield, Mitchell will be returning to a change-of-pace role, which will give him a very low fantasy ceiling and floor on a weekly basis. The 24-year-old went from being a must-start fantasy RB in Week 1 to basically only a handcuff option for CMC now. He shouldn't be trusted in starting lineups this weekend.

  • Mark Ingram II Out Again In Week 10

    New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram II (knee) missed practice all week and has officially been ruled out for Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ingram suffered an MCL sprain on Oct. 30 and was expected to miss three to four weeks, so his status doesn't come as much of a surprise this weekend. The 32-year-old veteran back is pretty much only a handcuff option for fantasy managers that have Alvin Kamara rostered. In eight games played, Ingram has 51 carries for 196 yards (3.8 yards per carry) and one touchdown, adding 11 receptions (12 targets) for 46 additional yards. Dwayne Washington is expected to serve as Kamara's backup this weekend against the Steelers, but he has no standalone fantasy value.

  • Ashton Dulin Activated From Injured Reserve

    The Indianapolis Colts officially activated wide receiver Ashton Dulin (foot) from Injured Reserve on Saturday and placed linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back) on Injured Reserve in a corresponding move. Dulin doesn't move the fantasy needle at all, especially in this weak Colts offense currently led by inexperienced quarterback Sam Ehlinger. The 25-year-old pass-catcher had 12 catches on 18 targets for 168 yards and no touchdowns in five games before landing on IR with his foot injury. He'll return to provide depth at the position behind Michael Pittman Jr., rookie Alec Pierce and Parris Campbell. In this disjointed Colts offense with a declining offensive line, no receiver other than Pittman should be trusted in starting fantasy lineups right now.

  • J.D. McKissic Won't Play On Monday Against Eagles

    Washington Commanders running back J.D. McKissic (neck) has been ruled out for the Week 10 contest on Monday night against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles. It will be the second straight game that McKissic has missed, and the team is going to be cautious with his neck injury, so there's no guarantee he'll be back on the field in Week 11 against the Houston Texans. With the 29-year-old sidelined again, it's great news for pass-catching back Antonio Gibson, although he only caught two of three targets for 11 yards in the Week 9 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. In the previous two weeks, though, Gibson caught 10 of 11 targets for 76 yards and two touchdowns. Rookie Brian Robinson should continue to handle most of the early down work, but Gibson has plenty of appeal as a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues this weekend.

  • Jahan Dotson Returning In Week 10

    Washington Commanders rookie wide receiver Jahan Dotson (hamstring) was removed from the final injury report on Saturday and will make his return in Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football. Dotson returned to practice this week for the first time since aggravating a hamstring injury on Oct. 20. The 22-year-old will play for the first time since Week 4. He was one of the biggest storylines in training camp and got his NFL career off to an excellent start with four touchdowns in his first four games. However, that was with quarterback Carson Wentz under center. Dotson will return with Taylor Heinicke under center, and he'll be competing for targets with Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel. He could be eased back into the offense, but Dotson absolutely needs to be rostered in all fantasy leagues after his hot start.

  • Dustin Hopkins To Miss Another Game

    Los Angeles Chargers kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) is officially out for Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. In his absence, Cameron Dicker will kick for the team for the second straight week. Hopkins hasn't played since Week 6 and is still recovering from his hamstring injury. Dicker the kicker made both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra points in the Week 9 win over the Atlanta Falcons, including the game-winning field goal late in the contest. The rookie also made both of his field-goal tries and both of his extra points for the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5. Although the 22-year-old has been perfect on all of his kicks in his first two NFL games, fantasy managers should look for better streaming options in Week 10.

  • Malcolm Brown Won't Play In Week 10

    Los Angeles Rams running back Malcolm Brown (hamstring) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals. The Rams will roll with Darrell Henderson Jr., Cam Akers and rookie Kyren Williams in their backfield this weekend. Williams is being activated from Injured Reserve after suffering an ankle injury in his NFL debut in Week 1. Brown was already well off the fantasy radar and will now be bumped further down LA's RB depth chart with the return of Williams. Akers returned in the Week 9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and had just five carries for three yards on 19 percent of the offensive snaps. He could have a bigger role this weekend, but this backfield is much too murky to trust in fantasy for the time being.

  • KJ Hamler Ruled Out Against Titans

    Denver Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler (hamstring) has been ruled out for the Week 10 contest against the Tennessee Titans. Hamler was injured in practice on Wednesday and didn't practice the rest of the week. With Kendall Hinton (illness) questionable, the Broncos could be short-handed on receiving depth behind starters Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy this weekend. If Hinton is unable to play, Montrell Washington will likely serve as the No. 3 wideout. Hamler has no business being rostered in 12-team fantasy leagues, as he's recorded just seven catches on 14 targets for 165 yards and no touchdowns in seven games this year in the Broncos' disappointing offense. His absence will open up a few targets for Denver's other pass-catchers against Tennessee.

  • Mo Alie-Cox Listed As Questionable

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Mo Alie-Cox (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Week 10 game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Alie-Cox missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday but returned to the practice field on Friday on a limited basis, giving him a chance to play on Sunday. Other than a six-catch, 85-yard, two-touchdown explosion in Week 4, Alie-Cox doesn't have more than two receptions or 26 yards in a game this year in Indy's poor offense. He caught both of his targets for 13 yards in the Week 9 loss to the New England Patriots. The 29-year-old isn't worth streaming as a TE2, even if he plays. If he's inactive on Sunday, Kylen Granson should have a sizeable role with Jelani Woods (shoulder) already ruled out.

  • Nico Collins Trending Toward Being Available

    Although Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 10 against the New York Giants, he practiced all week and is trending toward being available on Sunday. Collins had a good week and avoided setbacks after missing the last two games, so he should be active this weekend, barring a late setback. No. 1 receiver Brandin Cooks (wrist) is also trending toward playing after missing last Thursday's game, so the Texans should have their top two receivers available against the Giants. Collins is hard to recommend in starting fantasy lineups, even in deeper leagues as a flex play. In Houston's low-scoring offense, the 23-year-old is still searching for his first touchdown of 2022.

  • Bears Plan To Expand Chase Claypool's Role

    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said that the team plans to expand the package of plays for wide receiver Chase Claypool in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions on Sunday in Claypool's second game with the team. In his debut with Chicago in last week's win over the Green Bay Packers, Claypool played just 35 percent of the offensive snaps and caught two of six targets for only 13 yards. We should expect his snap share to increase this weekend, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll be a recommended flex play for fantasy managers, even in deeper leagues in the Bears' low-volume passing attack. Quarterback Justin Fields and the team's offense is showing more life of late and has a great matchup, but Claypool is still a shaky starting option as he continues to learn the team's offense.

  • Evan Engram Will Play Against Chiefs

    Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram (back) put in a full practice on Friday and was removed from the final injury report, so he'll be active in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Engram received medical attention on the sidelines of last week's win over the Las Vegas Raiders and ended up playing a season-low 55 percent of the offensive snaps as a result. The 28-year-old seems to be no worse for the wear heading into this weekend, though, and hopefully he'll be able to avoid an in-game setback. Engram is currently the TE14 in half-point PPR scoring through nine weeks of the season and will have a chance to bounce back on Sunday as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 play for fantasy managers. The Chiefs defense has been a good matchup for opposing TEs this year as well.

  • Phillip Dorsett Could Be In Line For Larger Role

    Houston Texans wide receiver Phillip Dorsett (ankle) got in full practices on Thursday and Friday and looks good to go for Sunday's meeting with the New York Giants. With Brandin Cooks (wrist) and Nico Collins (groin) both limited this week in practice, there's a chance Dorsett gets the start again. Last week, he led the Texans with 69 receiving yards. He and fellow wideout Chris Moore are both potential dart throws in deep leagues if both Collins and Cooks are out, while Dorsett is still playable in deep leagues if one of the two suits up.

  • Brandin Cooks Has Murky Outlook For Week 10

    Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks (wrist) was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, with his status for Sunday's game against the New York Giants uncertain. Cooks missed last week's contest against the Giants due to personal reasons after the Texans didn't trade him at the NFL's trade deadline. We don't really know what Cooks' usage will look like if he does play, so fantasy managers should view him as a risky WR3 option. He's still the team's most talented wideout, if he ends up being out on the field.

  • Dameon Pierce A Strong Week 10 Play

    Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce (chest/shoulder) has been limited at practice this week, but he was removed from the injury report on Friday, putting him in line to play Sunday against the New York Giants. He's a strong RB2 play against a Giants defense that ranks just 25th against the run. Pierce has made 20 or more carries in three of the last four games and had a career-high 139 rushing yards last week against the Eagles. He's the only player on this Texans team with guaranteed volume.

    Nov 12 · Source via Texans Dameon Pierce
  • Davis Mills Is Risky Option In Week 10

    Houston Texans quarterback Davis Mills should be fairly far down on your fantasy radar heading into Saturday's meeting with the New York Giants. Mills has thrown for under 200 yards in three of the last four games and has thrown at least one interception in three consecutive outings. Add in his lack of rushing upside, and you can see why Mills is a low-end QB2 play at best, no matter how enticing a matchup might be. And this matchup with New York isn't very enticing anyways, as the Giants rank 16th in passing yards allowed.

  • Noah Brown Off The Injury Report For Week 10

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Noah Brown (foot) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers. The wideout didn't suit up in Week 8 and received an additional week to rest, with Dallas coming off a bye. Brown has exceeded expectations this season, amassing 25 catches for 339 receiving yards and a touchdown to put him behind CeeDee Lamb as the team's second-best receiver. While those numbers won't do much for fantasy managers from week to week, Brown's presence on the field will certainly lower Michael Gallup's (chest) ceiling in Week 10. However, neither should be trusted in any fantasy format.

  • Seattle Seahawks Defense Is A Solid Option For Week 10

    The Seattle Seahawks defense will have a decent matchup against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. The Tampa Bay offense has been struggling a bit lately. Over the past four weeks, the Buccaneers have only scored four touchdowns total. The Seahawks' defense, however, has come up with five sacks in back-to-back games. Even against Tom Brady, the Seahawks' defense could be a solid play this week.

  • Noah Fant Is A Mid-Range TE2 For Week 10

    Seattle Seahawks tight end Noah Fant will be a fringe fantasy option in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 24-year-old is coming off his best game of the season, having finished Week 9 with five receptions for 96 yards. Fant has been very inconsistent this season, a significant factor stemming from having to fight for targets with Will Dissly. The performance last week was promising, and hopefully, it means more usage for him going forward. Fant is a mid-range TE2 this week.

  • Kenneth Walker III Is A Must-Start Fantasy Option in Week 10

    Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III is a must-start fantasy option in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers once had the best rushing defense in the league but have been wildly inconsistent this year. Currently allowing the ninth most rushing yards (1127), the Tampa Bay defense allowed 231 rushing yards in Week 8 to the Baltimore Ravens. Kenneth Walker III has been on an absolute tear, scoring seven touchdowns over the last five games. At this point, the rookie running back is a must-start fantasy option, no matter the opponent. Walker will be a low-end RB1 this week in Germany.

  • Geno Smith Is A High-End QB2 in Week 10

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith has a decent matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Munich this week. The 32-year-old has been on a hot streak, throwing multiple touchdowns in three straight games. Tampa Bay's defense came up big last week, only allowing Mathew Stafford to throw for 165 yards and sacking him four times. Geno Smith will be in for a test this week in Germany, but he has surprised us all season and could still put together a nice game. Smith will be a high-end QB2 this week.

  • Tyler Lockett Is A Mid-Range WR2 In Week 10

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett has a decent matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Munich this week. The 30-year-old is coming off a solid game against the Cardinals, where he finished with 67 yards and a touchdown. Lockett has gone back-to-back games with over 60 yards and a touchdown and might be able to continue this streak in Germany this week. The Buccaneers allowed Cooper Kupp to go for 127 yards and a touchdown last week but held all other receivers to just 38 yards total. This week, Lockett will be a mid-range WR2 against a solid Tampa Bay defense.

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf has a decent matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Munich this week. The 24-year-old is coming off a low-yardage game but salvaged the day with a touchdown. Metcalf has now scored a touchdown in back-to-back games and has established a strong rapport with quarterback Geno Smith. The Buccaneers allowed Cooper Kupp to go for 127 yards and a touchdown last week but held all other receivers to just 38 yards total. Metcalf will be a mid-range WR2 this week against a solid Tampa Bay defense.

  • Dolphins Defense Avoidable In Week 10

    The Miami Dolphins' defense will look to hinder the Cleveland Browns during their upcoming matchup on Sunday in Week 10. That's easier said than done, even if the Browns are led by Jacoby Brissett. Cleveland has a key group of offensive playmakers headlined by Nick Chubb, whose beautiful combination of shifty and aggressive running makes him tricky to tackle, and Amari Cooper, who has thrived in his new home as a receiver who can dismantle opposing secondaries. Defenses have indeed struggled against the Browns in 2022, averaging just 3.5 fantasy points per game. That figure ranks as the eighth-lowest total in the NFL and puts the Browns behind the powerful offenses of the Chiefs, Eagles, Bills, Jaguars, Ravens, Dolphins, and Chargers. Translation: a matchup with the Browns is tough for any defense, let alone a Miami unit that has failed to meet expectations. Avoid the Dolphins this week; you can find better options on the waiver wire.

  • Jason Sanders Offers Streaming Appeal In Week 10

    Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders finds himself ranked as a fringe top-12 option heading into Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns. For starters, there is a clear correlation between offensive success and kickers' fantasy points, so the Dolphins' dominance with the ball in their hands should lead to key kicking opportunities for Sanders. Furthermore, the weather is expected to be quite calm when this game kicks off in Miami on Sunday. On the topic of location, Sanders has fared better inside the confines of Hard Rock Stadium than on the road in 2022. At home, he has converted six of seven field goals, but away from home, he is 5-for-8. His only missed extra point this season also came on the road. All in all, if bye weeks have left you scrambling for a kicker, Sanders represents a strong option this Sunday.

  • Mike Gesicki Lacks Fantasy Appeal In Week 10

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki produced quite different results between 2021 and 2022. Last year's TE9, Gesicki has proven to be enormously touchdown dependent this season. In fact, he has failed to amass more than 5.7 fantasy points during each of the six games in which he has not catch a touchdown pass. This might not be awful news if the Dolphins' opponent, the Cleveland Browns, struggled against tight ends. However, they have allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points to tight ends, as well as the absolute fewest fantasy points to tight ends in the red zone. With Gesicki's red zone productivity expected to be hindered by the Cleveland secondary, fantasy managers should view the 27-year-old as nothing more than a low-end TE2 in Week 10.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. A Strong FLEX Play In Week 10

    Miami Dolphins running back Jeff Wilson Jr. is trending up after a strong Week 9 performance in which he amassed 72 scrimmage yards and one touchdown, all while logging more snaps, touches, and receptions than backfield-mate Raheem Mostert. Going forward into Week 10 (versus the Cleveland Browns) and beyond, there's no denying that Wilson's value is rising while Mostert's is falling. It would make sense for the Dolphins to ride with the hot hand; as of now, that man is Wilson. Don't be surprised if he continues to get involved on passing downs, giving him added allure in PPR formats.

  • Raheem Mostert Losing Reliability In Miami

    Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert saw his role dwindle last week as Jeff Wilson Jr. emerged and totaled 72 scrimmage yards, plus one touchdown. Mostert saw a smaller snap share and fewer touches than his counterpart, all while rushing for just 26 yards. Heading into Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns, there is an opportunity for Mostert to regain his lead back role. There is also the possibility that Miami splits its duties or perhaps even favors Wilson. The prowess of Miami's offense makes Mostert a fantasy RB3 this week, but there is legitimate concern that his value could fall. This is a great opportunity to sell high on Mostert while he's still producing solid results.

  • Trent Sherfield Offers Steady Floor In Week 10

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Trent Sherfield has emerged as a player who can provide a steady floor in fantasy football week in and week out. The No. 3 receiver behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, Sherfield has managed to play at least 56 percent of snaps in each of his last seven games, totaling 14 catches and 162 yards during that exact span. Now, he'll go up against a Browns secondary that is truly pedestrian. Cleveland has allowed the ninth-most touchdowns, 17th-most yards, and 17th-most fantasy points to wide receivers in 2022. Sherfield isn't a high-upside player, but he is essentially a lock to command a few targets, giving him a reliable floor in Week 10.

  • Tyreek Hill Looks To Continue Fantasy Supremacy In Week 10

    There is no slowing down Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill. The speed demon and ex-Chief has amassed 76 catches, 1,104 yards, and three touchdowns in 2022, putting him very much on pace to break the single-season receiving record. As a result, it is no surprise that Hill, who has eclipsed the triple-digit yardage mark in more than half of his games, ranks as the overall WR1 in fantasy football. Now, he'll go up against a Browns secondary that is truly pedestrian. Cleveland has allowed the ninth-most touchdowns, 17th-most yards, and 17th-most fantasy points to wide receivers in 2022. While Cleveland is well rested coming off its bye, Hill plays at a whole other level. Incredibly worthy of his NFL-leading 92.3 PFF receiving grade, Hill should be the consensus WR1 once again in Week 10.

  • Jaylen Waddle Rounds Out WR1 Tier In Week 10

    All signs point to Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle enjoying a big game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The second-year Alabama product has functioned as the No. 2 behind Tyreek Hill this season, but you wouldn't be able to tell based on his numbers. Waddle has amassed 47 catches, 812 yards, and six touchdowns so far, ranking him as the overall WR5 in PPR formats. Now, he'll go up against a Browns secondary that is truly pedestrian. Cleveland has allowed the ninth-most touchdowns, 17th-most yards, and 17th-most fantasy points to wide receivers in 2022. While Cleveland is well rested coming off its bye, Waddle is a unique beast. Incredibly worthy of his 85.1 PFF receiving grade (ninth-best in NFL), Waddle finds himself ranked inside the fantasy WR1 tier once again this week.

  • Tua Tagovailoa On Track To Dominate Sunday

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa should be inserted into most fantasy lineups ahead of the team's Week 10 clash versus the Cleveland Browns. The 24-year-old has completed 71 passes for 945 yards, seven touchdowns, and zero interceptions over his last three games, all while ranking near the top of the league in an abundance of key passing metrics. Notably, his 90.2 PFF passing grade leads the league and is nearly five whole points ahead of the No. 2 quarterback, Jalen Hurts. In his final game before the bye week, Tagovailoa will take on a Browns defense that has allowed the 10th-fewest fantasy points to quarterback. The unit features a relentless pass rush, creating the opportunity for sacks, but doesn't have a high turnover rate. Cleveland's 0.4 interceptions per game represent the fourth-lowest mark in all of football. With elite receivers at his disposal and a gorgeous touch on his deep ball, Tagovailoa is poised to finish as a high-end QB1 once again this week.

  • Steelers Defense A Top-10 Option In Week 10

    The Pittsburgh Steelers defense will be well-rested after their bye when they take on the New Orleans Saints at home in Week 10. The Saints have been a plus matchup for fantasy defenses in 2022, allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Pittsburgh will also receive a boost as edge rusher T.J. Watt (pectoral) is telling reporters that he's planning on returning from injury in Week 10. The Steelers are installed as 1.5-point home underdogs in a game with a low 40-point over/under. Fantasy managers can trust the Steelers as a top-10 fantasy defense in Week 10.

  • Matthew Wright Not A Recommended Fantasy Option In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Matthew Wright will take on the New Orleans Saints at home in Week 10. The Steelers placed regular kicker Chris Boswell (groin) on the injured reserve earlier in the week and signed Wright off of the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad to replace him. The Saints are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing kickers in 2022 but a struggling Pittsburgh offense makes Wright a shaky fantasy option heading into Week 10.

  • Pat Freiermuth A Solid Option In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth will face off against the New Orleans Saints at home in Week 10. Freiermuth should see a larger target share moving forward as the Steelers traded wideout Chase Claypool to the Chicago Bears after Week 8. That will open up more work for Freiermuth, who has operated as the team's No. 2 option in the passing game this season. The Saints have been tough on opposing tight ends in 2022, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Treat Freiermuth as a low-end TE1 heading into Week 10.

  • George Pickens A WR3 Vs. Saints In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens should see a larger role moving forward after the team traded away Chase Claypool at the trade deadline. Pickens will slide into the No. 2 WR chair for the first time in a Week 10 home matchup against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints represent a neutral matchup for Pickens as they are allowing the 15th-most fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position in 2022. Pickens is playable as a boom/bust WR3 heading into Week 10 and he should be in most starting lineups in fantasy moving forward.

  • Donte Jackson Out For Season With Torn Achilles

    Carolina Panthers cornerback Donte Jackson (Achilles) will miss the remainder of the 2022 season, the team reported on Friday. Jackson limped off the field late in Thursday night's win over the Atlanta Falcons and underwent an MRI that confirmed he had torn his Achilles. The 2018 second-round NFL Draft pick is a team captain and recorded 35 total tackles along with two interceptions and a defensive touchdown through the first 10 weeks of the year. Third-year pro C.J. Henderson is expected to replace Jackson in the starting lineup going forward.

  • Diontae Johnson A WR3 In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson will take on the New Orleans Saints at home heading into Week 10. Johnson should be well-rested after his bye in Week 9. The veteran wideout has been seeing plenty of targets this season, averaging 9.5 per game, but his yardage totals have been lacking most weeks. The Saints represent a neutral matchup for wideouts as they are allowing the 15th-most fantasy points per game to the position through nine games. Johnson has the potential to have a big game thanks to his high target volume but he should still be treated as a WR3 moving forward, at least until he shows more production on the field.

  • Jaylen Warren A Flex In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Warren will take on the New Orleans Saints at home in Week 10. Warren turned in a productive outing in his last game, posting 75 all-purpose yards in a Week 8 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Saints represent a tough matchup for Warren as they are allowing the 20th-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs in 2022. Head coach Mike Tomlin indicated earlier in the week that Warren could see a larger role over the second half of the season. As such, Warren is on the board as a flex option with boom/bust potential heading into Week 10.

  • Deshaun Watson Set To Practice Next Week

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is expected to join the team for practice early next week. Watson was suspended for 11 contests before the start of the regular season and will be eligible to return to game action in Week 13 when the Browns face Watson's former team, the Houston Texans. Although Jacoby Brissett has been solid, Cleveland has confirmed that Watson will indeed be the starter when active. The 27-year-old has not taken a snap in the regular season since 2020, so he may be a bit rusty at first, but fantasy managers should expect the Browns' offensive weapons to take a step forward with Watson under center.

  • Najee Harris A Low-End RB2 In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris will be well-rested after his bye heading into a Week 10 home game against the New Orleans Saints. Harris has struggled in 2022, averaging just 3.34 YPC with just three total touchdowns through eight games. The Saints have been solid against running backs in 2022, allowing the 20th-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Harris has been losing playing time and touches to rookie Jaylen Warren, which along with a struggling Pittsburgh offense, has capped Harris' upside. Treat Harris as a low-end RB2 in fantasy heading into Week 10.

  • Kenny Pickett A QB2 Vs. Saints In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett will come off of his bye to take on the New Orleans Saints at home in Week 10. Pickett has struggled a bit in his rookie season, throwing just two touchdowns compared to eight interceptions in five games. He draws a neutral matchup against a Saints defense that is allowing the 16th-most fantasy points per game to the quarterback position. Pickett has shown some rushing ability on the ground this year, which has kept him viable in fantasy, but he's best deployed as a low-end QB2 heading into Week 10.

  • Harrison Bryant A Viable Streamer In Week 10

    Cleveland Browns tight end Harrison Bryant will get another chance to operate as the starter as David Njoku (ankle) will miss another game in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins. Bryant had a similar opportunity back in Week 8 before his team's bye but he wound up drawing zero targets despite playing on 73.6% of his team's snaps. He has a good shot at bouncing back against a Miami defense that is allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends in 2022. Bryant is on the board as a low-end TE2 and is worth a look as a streaming option for fantasy managers desperate at the position heading into Week 10.

  • Packers Defense Off The Streaming Radar In Week 10

    The Green Bay Packers defense will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The Packers' defense has given up an average of 23.8 points to opposing offenses in the past five weeks and has averaged fewer than two sacks per game. They have also generated just eight turnovers on the season, one of the lowest totals in the league. To be blunt, the Green Bay defense is not an exciting fantasy option, even in plus matchups. Dallas just put up 49 points on the Chicago Bears last week and should face little resistance this week. Unless the Packers can generate a high number of turnovers, something they have failed to do all season, they will finish outside the top 15 this week. They should be left on the waiver wire in favor of a better option in Week 10.

  • Mason Crosby A Boom Or Bust Option Against Dallas

    Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The 38-year-old has posted four straight poor fantasy performances, converting only six extra points and four of five field goals during this stretch. The Packers' offense has struggled to get into scoring range and has even committed costly turnovers in the red zone. There is some hope for Crosby this week, as Dallas has allowed the fifth-most field-goal conversions this season. They have been a bend-don't-break defense, leading to decent fantasy outings for opposing kickers. The problem is Green Bay will need to get into scoring range often for the veteran kicker to have a solid fantasy outing. This makes Crosby a boom-or-bust streaming option in Week 10.

    Nov 11 · Source via Packers Mason Crosby
  • Robert Tonyan Not A Recommended Streaming Option In Week 10

    Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The 28-year-old has failed to top 35 yards since Week 6, where he exploded for 90 yards on 10 receptions. Tonyan failed to help fantasy managers last week against a soft Detroit Lions defense and now has to face a Dallas defense that allows the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to the tight end position. While Romeo Doubs (ankle) will be out for the next four weeks at least, Tonyan could still struggle to garner a consistent target share. Sammy Watkins is healthy, and rookie Christian Watson will likely see the biggest target bump in Doubs' absence. Spot-starting the veteran tight end in plus matchups is fine, but he is better left on the bench or waiver wire this week against Dallas.

  • Christian Watson Could See Workload Increase In Week 10

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The rookie reportedly left last week's game against Detroit due to a concussion, but the team stated this week that he never suffered a concussion but was placed in the protocol due to being barred from returning to the contest. Watson has practiced in full this week and was left off the final injury report. He should see an increase in snap percentage with fellow rookie Romeo Doubs (ankle) out for at least the next four weeks. Doubs has accounted for 16.1% of the team's total target share this season, the second most to Allen Lazard. Sammy Watkins should also see a slight target bump, but Watson possesses a much higher fantasy ceiling. Dallas is not a bad matchup for fantasy wide receivers, but it would be better to look in a different direction for a FLEX option this week unless you are desperate. Watson is a name to monitor this weekend but is not a recommended fantasy option.

  • Allen Lazard A Fringe WR2 in Week 10

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. This season, the 26-year-old has been one of the few bright spots for fantasy purposes on the Packers' offense. He has gained at least 55 yards or scored in all of his games this year and has averaged eight targets per game since Week 2. Dallas' defense has been stout in 2022, but they are not a terrible fantasy matchup for wide receivers. The Cowboys are middle of the pack in fantasy points per game allowed to the position, and Lazard has little competition to deal with in terms of targets. Rookie Romeo Doubs (ankle) is slated to miss at least four weeks, Sammy Watkins has done little to impress, and Christian Watson has struggled to finish games. With a high target share, Lazard should be considered a fringe WR2 in Week 10 and is a weekly FLEX option at worst moving forward.

  • AJ Dillon A Low-End FLEX Option In Week 10

    Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The 24-year-old has barely been playable since Week 1, which was his only fantasy finish with double-digit points this season. Dillon has recorded 10 or more touches in the past two weeks but has done little with them. Dallas currently allows the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to the running back position and have surrendered only three touchdowns. With how the third-year back has been producing for fantasy, this would typically be a week that he would be benched. However, there is a chance Dillon's touch total rises this week. Teammate Aaron Jones (ankle) is currently listed as questionable for Sunday's game. While there is a good chance he suits up, Dillon could see his average amount of carries rise if Jones is limited in any capacity. It leaves Dillon as a low-end FLEX option in Week 10.

  • Aaron Rodgers Better Left On The Bench In Week 10

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers (thumb) will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The reigning MVP has been playing through a thumb injury and is in no danger of missing the game. Rodgers had a chance to bounce back for fantasy purposes last week after having an abysmal season up to that point but failed to do so. He led the Packers offense to just nine points against Detroit and finished as the QB13 overall. With multiple pass-catching options out this week due to injury, Rodgers is better left off the fantasy radar against Dallas this week. The Cowboys allow the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to the quarterback position, and Rodgers has finished as a top-12 option just once this year. There is a slim chance the 38-year-old has a high-end fantasy performance in Week 10. Consider him a low-end QB2 that should be benched in the majority of leagues this weekend.

  • Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins Questionable

    Houston Texans wide receivers Brandin Cooks (wrist) and Nico Collins (groin) are both listed as questionable for Week 10 against the New York Giants. Cooks didn't practice on Wednesday but was limited the last two days, while Collins was limited all week. Cooks was held out for personal reasons last Thursday, and Collins has missed the last two games, but it looks like the Texans will be getting their top two receivers back this weekend. If that's the case, Phillip Dorsett and Chris Moore won't be deep-league flex options. Cooks will likely return to No. 1 duties if he's active, but that role has led to only 32 catches for 354 yards and one touchdown in seven games this season in Houston's lackluster offense. Consider him a WR3/4 with limited upside if he's active.

  • Chiefs Defense A Solid Play In Week 10

    The Kansas City Chiefs defense is a solid fantasy play heading into Sunday's contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Chiefs allowed under 20 points for just the first time all season last week, but they face a Jaguars team that ranks 12th in the NFL in fumbles and is scoring 22.1 points per game. There are better plays, but if you're streaming defenses at this point, the Chiefs are likely on the waiver wire and should be able to hold this Jaguars offense mostly in check.

  • Jarvis Landry Will Return In Week 10

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Jarvis Landry (ankle) was limited in practice all week and was removed from the final injury report on Friday, meaning he will play in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It will be Landry's first game since Week 4, but the fact that he still didn't practice in full this week suggests that the Saints could cap his snaps in his return after a long layoff. The 29-year-old veteran slot man mostly works out of the slot, so his return will be bad news for Tre'Quan Smith, who had been seeing an elevated role in the offense with Landry out since Week 4. Rookie first-rounder Chris Olave should continue to be quarterback Andy Dalton's top target through the air. Landry deserves to be stashed in deeper PPR leagues, but he'll be nothing more than a shaky WR4/flex in his first game back in Week 10.

  • Ryan Tannehill Questionable To Face The Broncos

    The Tennessee Titans officially listed quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) as questionable to play in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos due to his ankle injury. Tannehill has missed the last two games, but he returned to practice this week and even was a full participant on Thursday, suggesting that he has a good chance to return this Sunday. If the Titans play it safe and keep him out for a third straight game, rookie Malik Willis would make his third straight start. The 34-year-old Tannehill will be an upgrade over the struggling Willis, but against one of the toughest defenses on QBs in terms of fantasy points allowed in 2022, Tannehill will be a low-end QB2 if he's cleared for Sunday's start.

  • Harrison Butker Is A Top Kicker Option In Week 10

    Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker should be considered one of the top fantasy kickers heading into Sunday's Week 10 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Butker hasn't necessarily had the best showing this year, but the way that the Chiefs move the ball up and down the floor gives him a high floor and ceiling, even if he's performed closer to that floor this season so far. Butker has missed a field goal in three consecutive games, but his career history suggests he should get things moving back in the right direction soon.

  • Mike Williams Could Return To Practice Next Week

    Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said that there's a "good chance" that wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) will return to practice in some capacity next week. Williams is officially out for the Sunday night game in Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he's been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 7. Williams and Keenan Allen (hamstring) will both miss another game this weekend, leaving Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter in significant starting roles yet again. Williams should be stashed in all fantasy formats, as he has 37 catches on 59 targets for 495 yards and three touchdowns in his seven games played for LA so far this season. A return to practice next week won't necessarily mean he'll return in Week 11 against the division-rival Kansas City Chiefs.

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster Looks To Continue Strong Play

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster had some middling games earlier in the season, but he's been on a roll lately, including posting a season-high 10 receptions last week against the Titans. It hasn't always been clear what the pecking order in KC has been this year, but the last three games have established Smith-Schuster as the clear No. 1 wide receiver on the team. Consider Smith-Schuster to be a strong fantasy WR2 option this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Keenan Allen To Miss Another Game

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for the Sunday night game against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10 after missing practice all week. Mike Williams (ankle) remains on Injured Reserve, so Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter will continue to be attractive flex plays as the Bolts top two pass-catchers. Allen has been a monumental fantasy bust this year, playing in only two games and catching all six of his targets for 77 scoreless yards. He continues to say that he won't return to the field until he's 100 percent past his hamstring injury, so it's anyone's guess as to when that will be. The 30-year-old must remain stashed in all leagues, and we can only hope he'll contribute at some point during the 2022 fantasy season.

  • Travis Kelce Remains Top Fantasy Tight End Play In Week 10

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has been the best fantasy tight end this season and is coming off a game in Week 9 in which he was targeted 17 times. Don't expect 17 targets against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10, but Kelce's had at least 98 yards or a touchdown in all but one game this season, so there's no reason to think he won't finish as a top-five fantasy tight end again this season. He's KC's best offensive weapon and a must-start every week. The Jaguars do allow the 10th-fewest fantasy points per game to the tight end position, but...this is Travis Kelce, so we can essentially ignore that fact.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Officially Questionable Against Packers

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers with his knee injury. ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer truly believes Elliott will be a game-time decision on Sunday afternoon, which makes him an even riskier fantasy option this weekend. The Cowboys fully expect The 27-year-old to return after missing the Week 8 game, but fantasy managers should be wary that Elliott will see a diminished backfield role coming off the Week 9 bye, especially since backup Tony Pollard dominated with 100-plus rushing yards and three touchdowns with Zeke out in Week 8. Elliott was limited in practice all week and profiles as a shaky RB2 play in fantasy if he returns.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Tough To Trust In Week 10

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is coming off his worst game of the season, carrying the ball four times for just five yards in Week 9's win over the Titans. He was also on the field for just 17% of the team's snaps. Game script influenced that and Edwards-Helaire should be on the field more in this game since the Chiefs won't need to throw as much, but his current usage has him trending down. He's an RB4 at best at this point, and fantasy managers won't feel good about playing him if they end up having to.

  • Deebo Samuel, Jauan Jennings Will Be Active

    San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Deebo Samuel (hamstring) and Jauan Jennings (hamstring) and fullback Kyle Juszczyk (finger) were all removed from the final Week 10 injury report and will play on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers. The 49ers were able to get healthy during their Week 9 bye. Samuel was unable to play in Week 8, but he'll return for a nice matchup against the porous Chargers defense. The 26-year-old remains a must-start WR2 in fantasy, but running back Christian McCaffrey's presence and the return of RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) this weekend could hurt Samuel's chances for a high target share. In his seven games in 2022, Samuel has 56 touches for 515 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns.

  • Patrick Mahomes Looks To Keep Rolling Against Jaguars

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has thrown for over 400 yards in consecutive weeks heading into Sunday's home contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He might not get to 400 again this week, but he should be set to find success through the air against a Jaguars defense that ranks just 22nd in passing yards allowed per game. Kansas City has the NFL's best scoring offense and leads the league in passing yards per game as well. Mahomes should be considered a top-three fantasy quarterback for Week 10.

  • Amari Rodgers, David Bakhtiari Questionable

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Amari Rodgers (quadriceps) and left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) are listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys. Rookie receiver Romeo Doubs (ankle) was also ruled out, and veteran Randall Cobb (ankle) remains on Injured Reserve, so the Packers will be short-handed at receiver again this weekend. Even if Rodgers is able to play on Sunday, he'll be behind Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins and rookies Christian Watson and Samori Toure in the receiving pecking order. The 23-year-old has caught just four of his eight targets for 50 yards and no touchdowns in nine games in his second NFL season. If Bakhtiari can't play, it will be more bad news for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

  • Aaron Jones Off The Week 10 Injury Report

    Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (ankle) has been removed from Friday's final injury report and will play in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys. Jones sat out the fourth quarter of the Week 9 loss to the Detroit Lions, but he has rebounded nicely from his ankle injury and should serve as Green Bay's lead back as the Packers look to put an end to their losing streak versus Dallas. With all of the Packers injured offensive bodies, Jones figures to have a sizeable role in this game and should be considered a strong RB2 choice for fantasy managers. Jones enters Week 10 action as the RB10 in fantasy scoring with 107 carries for 600 yards and one touchdown while adding 32 receptions for 210 yards and three more touchdowns in nine games.

  • Austin Hooper Still Far From The Fantasy Radar

    Tennessee Titans tight end Austin Hooper isn't rosterable at this point in the season, so a matchup with the Denver Broncos in Week 10 is not the spot to trust him. Hooper has caught just 12 passes for 150 yards and zero touchdowns in eight games with Tennessee and has never come close to the fantasy radar. Denver boasts a top-end NFL secondary, so more of the same should be expected. There are plenty of better options in waivers for tight end-needy fantasy managers.

  • Robert Woods Not On The Fantasy Radar

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Robert Woods has failed to make a fantasy impact through nine weeks, and he had his worst game in Tennessee after failing to catch a pass against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9. The Denver Broncos are one of the strongest defenses against fantasy wideouts, so fantasy excellence is far from the expectation for Woods. He has just 22 catches for 256 yards and one touchdown thus far and is likely already dropped in most leagues.

  • Treylon Burks Trending Toward Returning

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks (turf toe) has missed the last four games after being placed on injured reserve, but he's reportedly trending toward being activated in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos. The rookie is a risky play in leagues of all sizes but could be an interesting desperation flex play in deep leagues. Denver boasts arguably the best secondary in the NFL, so he's far from the fantasy radar in shallow leagues. He's worth picking up with a potential midseason breakout coming, but his first game back from the injury figures to be tough sledding. If Malik Willis is the starting quarterback, he shouldn't be considered in any league.

  • Malik Willis Might Make Third Start

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Malik Willis could be in line for the third start of his rookie season if Ryan Tannehill (ankle) still isn't ready to go against the Denver Broncos. However, Willis is far from the fantasy radar and shouldn't be considered against arguably the best secondary in the league. Fantasy managers in two-QB/superflex leagues will likely have to start him, but he should be ranked close to dead last for quarterbacks in Week 10 if he's the starter once again.

  • Derrick Henry Remains A High-End RB1

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry leads the NFL in rushing yards (870) through nine weeks and his nine touchdowns have made him an elite fantasy option this season. The Denver Broncos rank No. 1 in many passing defense statistics, but they're vulnerable in the running game and down a few key outside linebackers. Whether Ryan Tannehill (ankle) plays or it's Malik Willis starting for Tennessee, there are no concerns from Henry in Week 10.

  • Cardinals Defense Is A Streaming Option Versus Rams

    The Arizona Cardinals D/ST is a potential streaming option in Week 10 against a struggling Rams offense. With Matt Stafford questionable for this game, the Cardinals' defensive outlook in this game would be even more appealing. Even with a struggling offensive line and some inconsistent quarterback play from the Rams, fantasy managers shouldn't get too excited to start the Cardinals D/ST. They have allowed the third-most passing yards this season, which means this could be a get-right game for the Rams' passing attack.

  • Zach Ertz A Solid TE1 In Week 10

    Arizona Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz will look to find the end zone for the third straight game in Week 10, as the Cardinals take on the Rams. Ertz could be in for a tough game if Kyler Murray (hamstring) doesn't suit up, as the Rams have allowed just 35 fantasy points to tight ends this season. After averaging 8.5 targets in his first six games, the veteran has seen just 17 targets in his past three games, so there could be some cause for concern for fantasy managers. However, at such a scarce position, he will be a must-start option on a weekly basis given what we have seen from him this season.

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Rondale Moore will look to keep rolling in Week 10 after being removed from the injury as he dealt with a hand injury throughout the week. The sophomore has totaled 18 targets for 161 yards over his past two games, so he figures to continue having a prominent role in the offense, at least until Marquise Brown (foot) returns to action. The speedster's fantasy value would take a hit if Kyler Murray (hamstring) is to be ruled out on Sunday, as he would likely be an extremely risky option if this is the case. Moore figures to be in the FLEX discussion with Murray under center, as DeAndre Hopkins could see a lot of Jalen Ramsey in this one, potentially opening the door for a third-straight week of solid fantasy production for the former Purdue collegiate star.

  • DeAndre Hopkins A WR1 Option In Week 10

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will look to bounce back in Week 10 after being held to just 36 yards in Week 9. He figures to be matched up with Jalen Ramsey in this one, but he is a must-start option regardless of tough matchups. With Kyler Murray (hamstring) potentially unable to suit up for this game, Hopkins' fantasy value would take a hit if Colt McCoy were to be under center. He would be more of a WR2 option if this is to be the case, as a matchup with Ramsey with McCoy throwing him the ball doesn't seem like an ideal situation for fantasy production.

  • Latest On Josh Allen's Status; Jordan Poyer, Greg Rousseau Out For Week 10

    The prime catalyst for the Bills’ recent rise, Josh Allen has not missed a game since Week 10 of the 2018 season. That particular Bills campaign — a rebuilding year centered around the quarterback they traded up twice in Round 1 to draft — did not present high stakes, allowing for considerable caution with Allen.

  • James Conner A FLEX Option In Week 10

    Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner will look to get back on track in Week 10 as the Cardinals take on the Ram. With Kyler Murray (hamstring) being a game-time decision, Conner could be heavily relied on if Colt McCoy is under center. Still, the Rams have allowed the third-fewest rushing yards this season, so Conner is likely going to be touchdown-dependent in this one. He hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 1, so fantasy managers could be left disappointed once again this week. He is by no means a must-start, but he figures to be able to produce RB3/FLEX numbers.

  • Brock Wright, James Mitchell Not On The Fantasy Radar

    Detroit Lions tight ends Brock Wright and James Mitchell combined for just three targets in the win over the Green Bay Packers last week and are set to face Chicago, who has given up the third-fewest fantasy points to tight ends. That said, neither are attractive starters as there are much better options on waivers -- even in deep tight end premium leagues. One of the two could emerge moving forward, but neither is not on the fantasy radar until further notice.

  • Kalif Raymond A Deep League Flex Play

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Kalif Raymond will likely serve as the team's No. 2 WR as Josh Reynolds (back) has been ruled again once again. Amon-Ra St. Brown is the target hog in his offense, but after him, it's Raymond, Tom Kennedy, James Mitchell, and Brock Wright competing for targets. Raymond is a speedster with big-play ability, so he's a boom-or-bust option in deep leagues against a middling Chicago Bears defense.

  • Jamaal Williams A Great Flex Play Against Bears

    Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams has tons of upside in a matchup with the Chicago Bears, who have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to running backs thus far. Chicago has also allowed the third-most rushing yards per game this season. Jamaal Williams should remain the primary back in running situations, even with D'Andre Swift (shoulder) off the injury report. Both Detroit running backs could be in for huge days, but it'll be interesting to see if Swift starts to get more touches since he didn't suffer a setback in Week 9.

  • Greg Joseph Not A Reliable Option In Week 10

    Minnesota Vikings kicker Greg Joseph will be a streaming option at best in Week 10 as the Vikings travel to take on the Bills. Joseph hasn't been the most reliable option in terms of fantasy production this season, as he ranks 31st in field goal percentage as he has made 11-of-16 attempts. However, he has been perfect when it comes to kicks within 49 yards, but he is just one-for-six when kicking from 50+ yards. The 28-year-old doesn't offer much appeal this week in a tough matchup for the Vikings offense.

  • Vikings D/ST A Risky Play In Week 10

    The Vikings D/ST fantasy value is up in the air in Week 10, as Josh Allen's status remains unclear leading up to kickoff. Should he be active, the Vikings D/ST becomes a must-sit option against the best offense in the league in this one. However, if Case Keenum is to get the start, fantasy managers can value them as a streaming option this week. Still, the Vikings have allowed the 10th-most passing yards this season, so fantasy managers shouldn't have lofty expectations even if they go up against a backup signal-caller.

  • T.J. Hockenson A Mid-Range TE1 Versus Bills

    Minnesota Vikings tight end T.J. Hockenson can be valued as a mid-range TE1 in Week 10 against the Bills, as he wasted no time getting involved in his new offense. After catching all nine of his targets for 70 yards in his Vikings debut, the former Detroit Lion is a must-start option at a scarce tight end position despite a tough matchup. It is yet to be seen if he can remain the second option in the passing game behind Justin Jefferson, but he should still be able to produce note-worthy numbers regardless of Adam Thielen's presence. Hockenson should be started in all formats.

  • Adam Thielen A Risky Flex Option In Week 10

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen will be a risky flex option in Week 10 on the road against the Bills' elite pass defense. Going against a team that has allowed the fifth-fewest passing yards this season is enough reason to consider benching the veteran in this matchup. However, his significant role in the offense and potential to find the end zone on any given week still makes him an appealing FLEX play on a weekly basis. Thielen should be downgraded in this matchup, but his 22 targets in his past three games give him the opportunity to offset the matchup with heavy volume.

  • Justin Jefferson Draws Tough Matchup Against Bills

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson will look to keep rolling in Week 10 as the Vikings travel to Buffalo for a meeting with the AFC-leading Bills. Jefferson has surpassed 100 receiving yards in four of his past five games, with the one outlier being 98 yards on just eight targets. The third-year stud is a must-start no matter the matchup, but he will have his work cut out for him against the Bills, who have allowed the fifth-fewest passing yards this season. Still, Jefferson should be valued as an elite WR1 option once again.

  • Chargers Defense Should Be Avoided In Week 10

    The Los Angeles Chargers defense/special teams ranks as a bottom-three fantasy unit so far this season and will draw a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10. San Francisco is fresh off of a Week 9 bye and hung 31 points on the Los Angeles Rams two weeks ago with recently acquired running back Christian McCaffrey totaling three touchdowns. Given that the Chargers have been terrible against opposing running backs in 2022, McCaffrey and the 49ers could feast once again. The Los Angeles DST cannot be trusted and should be left on waivers in fantasy leagues.
