The Fantasy Footballers’ Week 10 Starts
If ever there was a time to string together a few wins, this is it. The playoffs are around the corner and these are the weeks that teams create separation from the pack so read on (and listen up). Here are The Footballers’ Week 10 Starts from today’s episode!
QB Carson Palmer vs San Francisco
The time is now. Arizona is off the bye and gets San Francisco who is a sieve on defense. They’ve given up 3 TDs to QBs in back-to-back games and even gave up two TDs to Drew Stanton the last time these two teams matched up. Arizona is a huge favorite and it’s a good chance for the Arizona offense to right the ship.
RB Lamar Miller at Jacksonville
Jacksonville has given up 5 TD to RB in the last 4 weeks. It’s a good opportunity for Miller to get into the end zone. Brock Osweiler is dealing with some confidence issues, which means Houston should lean on Miller and the run game.
WR Ty Montgomery at Tennessee
I think this will be one of the last big opportunities for him to get significant reps at the RB position. Starks might see the field this week, but Montgomery should still get good volume out of the backfield.
TE Travis Kelce at Carolina
Jeremy Maclin may or may not play which makes Kelce the #1 or #2 target for Kansas City. Carolina has struggled against TEs including an 8 for 121 performance by the Rams TEs last week. Kelce is my #4 TE this week and could have a huge game especially if he doesn’t get thrown out again.
QB Jay Cutler at Tampa Bay
The Tampa Bay defense has given up 857 yards and 8 TDs in just the last 2 weeks and Cutler looked good against a tough Minnesota defense in his return from an extended injury hiatus.
RB Tim Hightower/Mark Ingram vs Denver
Denver has allowed 99+ rushing yards last 5 weeks including 215 yards and 3 TDs last week to Oakland. Broncos LE Derek Wolfe is out for this game along with Aqib Talib. Sean Patton has fed and will continue to feed his RBs.
WR Alshon Jeffery at Tampa Bay
Jeffery will face rookie Vernon Hargreaves who has allowed 19/298/1 in the last 2 weeks. I love Alshon and Cutler targets him a lot. I expect Jeffery to feast.
TE Lance Kendricks at New York Jets
Kendricks has 5+ receptions in each of the last 3 games including increasing yardage totals in each game over that span. He has had 7 receptions in each of the last 2 weeks. Kendricks is finally emerging as a legitimate threat. It’s the Britt and Kendricks show in Los Angeles.
QB Dak Prescott at Pittsburgh
The Dak Attack has been consistently good and now has a game with a 50 point over/under. Big Ben plays better at home, which should force Dallas to throw the ball.
RB Jordan Howard at Tampa Bay
Howard just torched Minnesota and this is just a great matchup.
WR Steve Smith Sr. vs Cleveland
It’s a tough matchup against Joe Haden, but Jason is not afraid.
TE Zach Miller at Tampa Bay
Might as well round out the entire Chicago offense against Tampa Bay. Miller hasn’t scored a TD in the past four weeks despite 22 receptions over that span. Good chance that streak ends against Tampa.
QB Carson Wentz vs Atlanta
Wentz has struggled the past few weeks which means the Honeymoon is officially over, but he gets to face an Atlanta defense that has already given up over 2,600 yards and 23 TDs passing this season. Those stats are both worst in the league. This looks like a great spot for Wentz to have his first 3+ TD game.
RB Devontae Booker at New Orleans
The noise about Kapri Bibbs, ohh the noise! I don’t care if Bibbs gets 40% of the carries, the New Orleans defense is so bad against RBs that there’s more then plenty of fantasy points to go around even if Bibbs does get a significant number of touches. New Orleans has given up 6 or more receptions to RBs in five out of eight games. Even better, New Orleans has already given up 3+ TDs to RBs in three separate games this year.
WR Jamison Crowder vs Minnesota
Crowder has two straight 100-yard games and he has three straight games with 10+ points in standard scoring leagues. With DeSean Jackson banged and questionable (like truly questionable) to play this week, this should be the Crowder-Reed show against a Minnesota defense that’s starting to show chinks in the armor.
TE Antonio Gates vs Miami
At the beginning of the year, I said Gates would get the 8 TDs he needs to surpass Tony Gonzalez as the all-time TE TD leader. I wasn’t tracking it and thought that number was something of a long-shot, but Gates has TDs in two consecutive games bringing his TD total up to four on the year. San Diego gets Miami at home. This feels like a 5-60-1 type game for Gates.
Jason Moore’s Ironclad, Lock-and-Loaded 100% Guaranteed ‘Boom Boom Kicker of the Week’
Jason has spent the last three days diving deep in leg angles, exit velocity, ball rotation, natural gas laws, kick mechanics, and the ins and outs (but mostly the outs) of kicker psychology during the month of November to come up with his Boom Boom kicker of the week. With much of the same in-depth analysis that predicted and arguably created Matt Bryant’s superior performance last week, Jason’s proprietary algorithm has come up with Baltimore kicker Justin Tucker. It’s a short week, defenses are tired-It works.
