Hello fantasy footballers! I am here again to make sure you have the best possible chance to win your week. With that being said, let us take a look back at week ten, before hitting this week’s streamers.
Week 10: Bad Call
TE C.J. Uzomah– With WR A.J. Green sidelined, Uzomah figured to be a primary focal point in the passing game. However, this was not the case. Uzomah has surpassed three catches in a game only once this season. Someone has to pick up the slack with Green gone, but it does not seem like those targets will be sent Uzomah’s way.
Week 10: Good Call
QB Marcus Mariota- What has gotten into Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans offense? In the past two weeks, they have upset the Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots. In last week’s game, Mariota completed 16-of-24 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns. He also added 21 yards rushing and hauled in a 21-yard reception. Mariota will always have a solid floor due to his rushing ability. If the Titans’ offense can continue to roll, he could push for top-ten QB territory for the rest of the season.
Teams on Bye in Week 11
New England Patriots
New York Jets
San Francisco 49ers
*All players under 50% owned according to Yahoo Fantasy Football
QB Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys (@ Atlanta Falcons, 45% owned)- Dak has passed for at least 240 yards and two scores in his last three games. He will be facing an Atlanta Falcons team that is allowing 294 passing yards per game. Dak also has the rushing ability at his disposal to inflate his floor.
RB Jalen Richard, Oakland Raiders (@ Arizona Cardinals, 45% owned)- I am doubling down on Richard this week. He let me down last week, but I think he has an even better chance to succeed in this one. With injuries to WR Martavis Bryant and WR Jordy Nelson, the Raiders will need someone to step up in the passing game. The Cardinals have also given up the fourth most points to running backs on the season.
WR Nelson Agholor, Philadelphia Eagles (@ New Orleans Saints, 46% owned)- Agholor outperformed WR Golden Tate and WR Alshon Jeffery last week against the Cowboys. This may not be replicated, but he could still see plenty of work this week against the New Orleans Saints, who are allowing 296 passing yards a game.
TE Jonnu Smith, Tennessee Titans (@ Indianapolis Colts, 3% owned)- Smith has scored in two consecutive games and is facing a Colts’ defense that ranks in the bottom of the league in yards allowed to tight ends on a per game basis.
Washington Redskins (vs Houston Texans, 47% owned)- Washington has caused multiple turnovers and held opponents to less than 18 points in four of its last five games. The Texans have been prone to turning the ball over, even though their offense has looked potent as of late.
Rader’s Radar: Super Deep Sleeper Pick
WR Brandon LaFell Cincinnati Bengals (@ Arizona Cardinals, 1% owned)- Much like Richard’s role, LaFell’s should grow with injuries to Nelson and Bryant.
