Fantasy football under-the-radar plays — Week 10
Week 10 is already here and I’m back to give out more sleeper plays. My standard for a good fantasy game is around 100 total yards and/or a TD, and this is for PPR scoring. A game with a lot of catches helps too, obviously. Of course, the bar is a little lower for TEs.
I went 7-6 last week, and you can check out that article here. Week 9 wasn't great, so I'll try and improve on that this week. With the bye weeks upon us, I will continue to look for players that can help you, and are also widely available. These players are in no particular order.
Baker Mayfield (CLE): The Falcons are allowing over 27FPTS/G to QBs over their last 4 games.
Marcus Mariota (TEN): The Patriots are giving up over 28FPTS/G to QBs over last 5 games, and he was good against Dallas in Week 9.
Tevin Coleman (ATL): Coleman had a big game last week, and I like his chances to do it again. The Browns give up the most fantasy points to RBs over their last 5 games at almost 34FPTS/G.
Mark Ingram (NO): He’s been hard to trust with Kamara stealing all the goal line work as of late, but I like Ingram this week. The Bengals are giving up almost 33FPTS/G to RBs over their last 4. Fire up Ingram this week, he’s due.
Kenyan Drake (MIA): Drake has a terrific opportunity to put up some big numbers this week. He plays a Packers defense that’s giving up just under 30FPTS/G to RBs over their last 4. They should be playing from behind which should mean he sees a lot of work catching passes out of the backfield.
Leonard Fournette (JAX): He’s supposed to return this week, and boy do I need a big game from him. The matchup is tasty, so he just has to play a full game to come through. If he doesn’t have any setbacks this week at practice, start him.
Amari Cooper (DAL): They’re forcing him the ball and there’s nothing scary about the matchup.
DeSean Jackson (TB): The Redskins are allowing over 48FPTS/G to WRs over their last 5 games, and I’m thinking Josh Norman will spend more time dealing with Mike Evans.
Calvin Ridley (ATL): This dude appears in my article almost every week, but that’s because he usually comes through. He was my player of the week in last week’s article and he made me look good, so I’ll give him another shot against the Browns defense.
Josh Gordon (NE): He's starting to get going, and the Titans can be exposed in the secondary.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling (GB): It's not the best matchup in the world, but he has been very good with limited opportunites.
David Njoku (CLE): The Falcons are allowing 15FPTS/G to TEs over the last month, so he’s worth a shot.
Austin Hooper (ATL): The Browns aren’t very good at stopping TEs, so Hooper is a sneaky play with Cleveland allowing 30 catches to the TE position over their last 5 games.
