Drew Brees, Saints, $6700 DK
Back from injury, Brees has had two weeks to prepare for the Falcons, who are 31st in the league in points allowed.He should put up big numbers this week in a game that I expect to be high scoring.
Matt Ryan, Falcons, $6100 DK
This is the same as Bree’s for me here. The Falcons won’t be able to run here, so expect a heavy passing day for Ryan who is $600 cheaper than Brees.
Ryan Tannehill, Titans, $5100
With Mahomes returning, expect the Chiefs to run up the score and once again the Titans will be playing from behind late in the game, making Tannehill a sneaky source of points in Week 10.
Christian McCaffery, Panthers, $10,500 DK
Yes I know the price! All you need to know is Christian McCaffery at this stage is matchup proof. This week he gets a Green Bay defence that is suspect to the run.
Aaron Jones, Packers, $7400
Jones put up a dud last week as did most of the Green Bay team. He gets a get right game in week 10, a Carolina defence allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to running backs this season.
David Montgomery, Bears, $5300 DK
Montgomery has 175 rushing yards and 48 receiving in two games. He also has three touchdowns in that span. This week the Bears face the Lions, who allow the most fantasy points to running backs.
Golden Tate, Giants, $5900 DK
Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram are out for Week 10, this presents a golden opportunity for Tate. The Giants face the hapless Jets in week 10, who allow the sixth-most fantasy points to wide receivers. Tate should be locked in this week.
Zach Pascal, Colts, $5300 DK
Expect Pascal to see a high target share with injuries to T.Y. and Campbell. Pascal has an excellent matchup this week against the Dolphins, that’s been like a cheat code for opponents in fantasy.
Christian Kirk, Cardinals, $5200 DK
A quite return from injury for Kirk in week 9. Kirk now gets the Bucs who are worst in the league against opposing wide receivers, and Kirk is clearly the best wideout on the Cardinals. Expect a big day.
Gerald Everett, Rams, $4500 DK
This week Everett gets a Pittsburgh defense that has allowed tight ends to find the endzone three times over the last three weeks. The Steelers currently allow the 9th most fantasy points to tight ends. With Cooks out expect Everett to see an uptake in targets.
Greg Olsen, Panthers, $3600 DK
Olsen gets the Packers defence this week, a defence giving up 529 yards to opposing tight ends on the season, the fifth most in the NFL. While it’s not sexy, Olsen gives you a safe floor at this position.
OJ Howard, Tampa, $3300 DK
If there was ever a week to play Howard, this is it! The Cardinals have given up 14 touchdowns on the year to opposing tight ends. It’s put up or shut up time for Howard.
Ravens $4000 DK
Colts $3500 DK
Bills $2900 DK
