NFL Week 10: DFS Picks | FanDuel DraftKings
This week features only two games with a projected total over 50 points: Falcons at Saints (51.5 Total) and the Cardinals at Buccaneers (52.5 Total) and we do have three games with a projected total of 48. I tend to shy away from low scoring games and we have two this week: Lions and Bears (42.5 Total) and Bills at Browns (40.5 Total).
As always, check back on Sunday and follow us on twitter @theDFSpost for updates closer to kickoff. With all that being said, here are our NFL Week 10 picks for the 10 game main slate as it stands right now:
Lamar Jackson – This is the first time I’m writing up the top QB but Jackson is legit worth it this week. The Bengals have given up the second most fantasy points to QB’s and Jackson torched them for 33.6DKFPts in week 6. There is no reason why that can’t happen again which would be over 4x payoff. The fact that Jackson rushes the ball so much it provide a nice floor making him the best play on the slate.
Jameis Winston – There is always risk playing Winston but this week is better than most. He is coming off three weeks of over 300 yards passing and has only thrown a total of two interceptions over those weeks. The Cardinals are giving up the third most DKFPts this year and are near the bottom for defensive interceptions.
Ryan Tannehill – The value play of the week and pretty much a lock to 4x. Over his last three games he’s averaged 23.5FPPG and will be facing a Chief’s defence giving up the seventh most FPoints to QBs this season. They will be playing from behind and throwing the ball often to keep up and the salary savings will help paying up elsewhere.
Marlon Mack – I’ll be paying down at RB this week as there is a lot of great plays in the $7k range. First is Mack who gets to get up against the Dolphins who are giving up the most FPPG to opposing RB’s. Mack is one of the few backs in the NFL that doesn’t share the backfield so he has a nice floor and the upside in this matchup is too good.
Jaylen Samuels – He was a decent play last week, catching 13 passes out of the backfield. While he did struggle running the ball it’s tough to expect that to happen again. Plus, Trey Edmunds hasn’t practiced this week yet and should he miss Samuels will have the backfield to himself. At home, paying off 3x should be doable.
Ronald Jones – The value play of the week – Arians has publiclly announced Jones is the starter which led to 20+ touches last week. This week he’s in the one of the highest scoring games facing a team that’s giving up the ninth most rushing yards to opposing RB’s. Yea, he’s a lock for me.
Also Consider –Nick Chubb (The Bills have given up 100+ rushing yards in four straight games) and David Montgomery (back-to-back 20+FPPG with a 70% snap share last week + Stafford is hurting on the other side.)
As always, I stack up my QB’s with my WR’s so you’re looking at Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, or AJ Brown this week. You can always run it back on the other side with Christian Kirk, Tyreek Hill or Sammy Watkins. Nothing too exciting there so outside of the stacks you can look at: Albert Wilson who’s going to see his playing time increase with the injury to Williams plus he’s near minimum price. Michael Thomas simply because there is no-one on Atlanta that can stop him, Cooper Kupp, Davante Adams, and Golden Tate round out the player pool here.
Travis Kelce – It’s a weak TE pool but Kelce is a great way to get exposure for a Titans/Chiefs stack. The Titans defence is only middle of the back defending TE’s so he should be able to maintain his pace, plus if Mahomes is back, it only raises his profile even more.
Gerald Everett – The Steelers have been brutal defending TE’s and the Rams have taken advantage of this in Week 5 (@SEA) and Week 7(@ATL) where Everett saw double digit targets. I like the upside in this matchup for him.
Jonnu Smith – With Delanie Walker set to miss that is a nice boost to Jonnu who’s been seeing six targets a game without Delanie and the Chiefs have given up the third most receptions to TE’s this year.
Mike Gesicki – An intriguing value play, Gesicki saw 6 targets last week which could become the norm with the Dolphins being down a WR this week. It’s the definition of a flyer but there isn’t much to lose. I will have some exposure in some of my lineups.
