The daily fantasy football action continues to heat up as the 2017 NFL schedule rolls into Week 10. This weekend’s slate is heavy as 24 teams take the field on Sunday to provide us with some solid daily fantasy options to build around. A group of options that includes Dak Prescott under center, Le’Veon Bell at running back and Julio Jones at wide receiver.
Along with some top tier options, Week 10 has some promising sleeper and bargain options to build around. This includes one of the three running backs who will take over for Ezekiel Elliott in Dallas as the Cowboys will look to find some production. While many fantasy football, owners are turning to Alfred Morris or Darren McFadden, but for us the guy that could be worth the risk in GPP lineups is Rod Smith.
Before we get to who we like in Week 10 to build our NFL FanDuel lineup around, here are a few of the top offenses to build around based on their matchups this weekend.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Indianapolis Colts
This might be the perfect team to build a stack around this weekend as they take on a very bad Indianapolis Colts team. The Colts enter this weekend allowing the seventh most rushing yards and most passing yards in the NFL.
New York Giants @ San Francisco 49ers
Now before you decide to jump off this idea, just look at the statiticis to see how bad this 49ers defense has been this year. The 49ers are allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and the most fantasy points to opposing running back.
Here is our Daily Fantasy Football Options we like for Week 10 of the 2017 NFL Season.
2017 NFL Daily Fantasy Football Options Week 10
Quarterback – Ben Roethlisberger
You could go a few different directions this weekend under center as guys like Tom Brady and Matthew Stafford are both solid options to build around. In the end, we just can’t look past the matchup that Roethlisberger and his teammates have this weekend against a very bad Colts defense. While Roethlisberger has struggled at times he has been pretty consistent against some solid defenses opening up the possibility for a big time fantasy performance this weekend.
Other Top Quarterback Options – Tom Brady & Matthew Stafford
Sleeper Options – C.J. Brethard
Potential Bust – Drew Brees
Running Backs –Le’Veon Bell & Jordan Howard
At the top of our play list at the running back position for Week 10 sits Bell who has a fantastic matchup against the Colts. The Colts are one of eight teams in the NFL that have allowed their opponents to top the 1,000 yard mark on the ground while also being the only team to allow double digit rushing touchdowns. Meanwhile Howard will continue to be asked to carry as much of the Chicago Bears offense as possible as they limit their rookie quarterback Entering Week 10, Howard has touched the ball over 23 times in three straight games. A sleeper play that is not only high risk but high reward this weekend is Tarik Cohen.
Other Top Running Back Options – LeSean McCoy, Aaron Jones & Todd Gurley
Sleeper Options – Rob Kelley, Alfred Morris & Rod Smith
Potential Bust – Melvin Gordon
Wide Receivers – Antonio Brown, Robert Woods & Tre McBride
The Steelers stack couldn’t be finished without adding Brown as our top option at the wide receiver position while also giving both JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant consideration. After strong consideration, it was hard to look past Brown who has been targeted at least ten times in all but one games this season leading to at least 14.5 points in three of his last four games. Another option who has seen a bunch of targets of late is Woods, the Los Angeles Rams receiver is becoming a favorite of Jared Goff pulling in at least four catches in four straight games. This weekend he should have a chance to produce against a beat-up Houston Texans defense that has allowed 1,339 receiving yards and nine touchdowns to opposing receivers. Rounding out of receiving corps is Tre McBride who slowly emerged as a threat in the receiving game for Bears. After a slew of injuries the Bears seem to have a few receivers opening up some opportunities for McBride. In his last game, McBride pulled in three catches for 92 yards.
Other Top Wide Receiver Options – Robbie Anderson, DeMaryius Thomas, Brandin Cooks, A.J. Green & Julio Jones
Sleeper Options – Martavis Bryant, Willie Snead, Kendall Wright & Adam Humphries
Potential Bust – DeAndre Hopkins & Keenan Allen
Tight End – Eric Ebron
After stacking a trio of Steelers based on their matchup with the Colts it limits us at the tight end position. While we considered Rob Gronkowski, we couldn’t look past the matchup that Stafford and Ebron has on Sunday against a bad Cleveland Browns defense. Entering this weekend’s matchup, the Browns have allowed 542 receiving yards and six touchdowns to opposing tight ends on the year. Add that with the fact that Stafford continues to target him makes him a solid play this weekend.
Other Top Tight End Options – Rob Gronkowski & Hunter Henry
Sleeper Option – Mercedes Lewis
Potential Bust – Jack Doyle
Kicker – Matt Prater
When looking at kickers we continue to look at options that play indoor each week. One of those options this weekend is Matt Prater who should see a ton of options to put points on the board as the Lions look to take advantage of a very bad Browns defense. The Lions kicker enters this weekend’s contest posting back to back double digit fantasy performances for his fantasy owners.
Other Kicker Options –Greg Zuerlein & Chris Boswell
Defense – Detroit Lions
Seems like nothing is going right for the Browns this season and that should continue this weekend against a solid Lions defense. At the front of those struggles has been the play under center as DeShone Kizer, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan have all struggled. Entering this weekend’s showdown, the Browns bad offense has opened up the door for their opponents to score the second most fantasy points for their owner from the defensive position.
Other Defensive Options – Jacksonville Jaguars & Dallas Cowboys
