We will be breaking down the studs and sleepers for NFL Week 10 to help you get the knowledge you need in order to achieve 1st place in your fantasy football leagues.
Aaron Rodgers (7,500) is a guy we love this week especially for his price at 7,400. He is playing at home this week and has a great matchup against the Lions. The Lions give up the 4th most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks at 19.60. Rodgers is coming off a tough loss against Carolina, so we expect Rodgers to play with integrity and have a big game! Another guy to Consider is Blake Bortles (5,600). He will be going up against the Ravens who have a total of 3 interceptions on the year which ranks 32nd in the NFL. With Blake Bortles averaging 18.76 fantasy points per game, he is a guy to strongly consider, especially going up against a team who has given up the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Also consider Kirk Cousins (5,200), Cam Newton (7,000), and Andy Dalton (6,500)
DeAngelo Williams (6,500) will be going up against the Cleveland. The Cleveland Browns have given up the most rushing yards in the NFL and are ahead in that statistical category by 222 yards. With Big Ben out, we see the Steelers relying heavily on Williams and we can see Williams having a huge game this Sunday! Another guy to consider is LeGarrette Blount (4,900). He got a total of 29 carries last week which is one reason why to consider him. With Lewis now out for the year, Blount will have a bigger role with the team. We predict Blount having another big game for the Pats, especially if they jump out with the early lead and rely heavily on the run. Also consider Darren McFadden (4,900) and Todd Gurley (7,300)
DeAndre Hopkins (8,700) does not have the best of match ups, but he is still a lock this week. The Texans will rely heavily on Hopkins to get the offense going this week against the Bengals. He has had double digit targets in every game this season which is why you should pencil him in your lineups. He has huge upside which is what you are always looking for when making a lineup. Another guy to look at is Stefon Diggs (5,100). He is a very talented young wide receiver for the Vikings and has been the clear number one target for Teddy Bridgewater in recent weeks. Diggs will be going up against the Raiders who have given up the 3rd most receiving yards to opposing wide receivers. He is a nice option to go with, if you want to save some money at the wide receiver position and spend big money elsewhere. Also consider Allen Robinson (6,700) Randall Cobb (6,700), Kamar Aiken (4,500)
Rob Gronkowski (8,00) is a guy to consider this week? The real question is….. When is Gronk not a lock? He definitely is this week against the Giants who have a very weak secondary. The Giants have given up the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing Tight Ends and the 2nd most receiving yards. With all these things in play, Gronk is our top lock of the week! Another guy to look at is Jordan Reed (4,600). He will be going up against the Saints who also have an awful secondary. He has had 3 touchdowns in his last two games which shows the trust Cousins has in him once they are inside the red zone. The Saints give up the most receiving yards to opposing tight ends, so Reed can have a real nice game this Sunday. Also consider Tyler Eifert (5,800) and Greg Olsen (6,300)
