Adam Humphries, 2.7%, vs WSH: I told you to grab him after week 9 — you only have yourself to blame! This is now the third week in a row where Humphries was second to Mike Evans in targets, however Evans and Humphries couldn’t have had two different days. Humphries was the second-highest scoring WR in the league while Evans only hauled in 1 of his 10 targets for 16 yards…
Baker Mayfield, 38%, vs ATL: A Waiver Wired All-Pro, Mayfield has often found himself in this article since his debut way back in week 3. I even recommended him last week and he put up 17 fantasy points against the Chiefs — good for the 13th highest scoring QB. In week 10 he’ll get the Falcons who have allowed the 3rd most fantasy points to QBs this season on the back of the 3rd most passing TDs. At least another 17 fantasy point day is in the cards.
Ito Smith, 31.6%, @ CLE: Smith only had 3 less rushing attempts than Atlanta’s top dog Tevin Coleman, but he still had 60 yards and the only rushing TD in the game. Smith won’t touch first-team reps, but he’s still capable of double-digit games from your flex spot especially in week 10 against a Browns team that has allowed the most rushing TDs and 5th most rushing yards this season.
Mike Davis, 18.5%, @ LAR: It’s really hard to recommend any of the Seahawks running backs because of their inconsistency, but after a Chris Carson injury Davis became the biggest beneficiary on the ground and through the air. Based on early reports I’m thinking that Carson won’t play in week 10 which opens up snaps for Davis. When he was behind Carson in their week 5 match-up against these Rams he still put up 14 fantasy points on 68 rushing yards and a rushing TD.
Elijah McGuire, 9.4%, vs BUF: For the fourth game in a row, Isaiah Crowell had double-digit rushing attempts, but under 50 rushing yards. I think that is more of a commentary on the Jets offense overall, but there is room for McGuire to step up in this offense. At the least, McGuire did have a role in the passing game catching 3 of his 5 targets for 37 yards.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling, 20.7%, vs MIA: For the 4th game in a row, MVS was Green Bay’s second-highest fantasy scoring WR. Over his last 4 games he’s averaging 14.25 fantasy points per game. His volume of catches hasn’t been that high: 15 total in his last 4 games — but he’s making it count by either having over 100 receiving yards or catching a TD pass in those 4 games. As long as he’s catching passes from Aaron Rodgers, he can continue to make one of those two things happen in a game.
David Moore, 16.8%, @ LAR: I’ll admit I recommended Moore last week and in week 9 he laid a dud against the Chargers. Well it’s a whole new ball game for week 10 — the Seahawks are playing the Rams who’ve allowed the 5th most fantasy points to WRs. There are a lot of mouths to feed in LA, but I’m expecting Moore to do what he does best (catch TDs) against a team that has allowed the second-most of those to WRs.
John Ross, 8.1%, vs NO: With A.J. Green already labeled out for week 10, Tyler Boyd and Ross are going to feast on a Saints secondary that has been pathetic against the pass. They’ve allowed a league-worst 271 fantasy points to opposing WRs. The second-worst team has allowed 245. Yeaaaaa…
Maurice Harris, 0.1%, @ TB: Hey yo Mo! No one predicted Harris would grab 10 catches after having 11 total in his previous 4 games. With Paul Richardson going on the IR, there are now snaps available in Washington and Harris just made the best case on why he should get a lot of them. His week 10 opponent, the Buccaneers have allowed the second most fantasy points to WRs — this could be the start of a beautiful friendship between you and Harris.
Chris Herndon, 12.6%, vs BUF: Herndon was actually the Jets top receiver in week 9 grabbing 4 passes for 62 yards. I didn’t say it was a big amount. Going into this game Herndon had three straight games with a TD reception. According to Razzball’s Depth Chart he was on the field for 75% of the Jets snaps and that number should only continue to rise as the season goes on.
NY Jets D/ST, 37.2%, vs BUF: Boy, I’m really stacking against the Bills aren’t I? Don’t for a second act like they don’t deserve the stack against them though. For this recommendation, the Bills are only averaging 10.7 points per game. They’ve scored more than 15 points only once way back in week two. They’ve been held to single digits in each of their last three games.
Jason Myers, 45%, vs BUF: Doesn’t this just seem like a game where the score is going to be 18 to 6 with only field goals scored? It’s not like the Jets offense is that much better than the Bills. This will be an ugly game to watch — unless you’re a Jason Myers owner.
In a .5 PPR league, who is the most droppable out of Godwin, TreQuan and MVS?
Would you pick up Larry Fitzgerald over this guy?
@Andrew: I’d drop Tre’Quan for Fitz.
Here is my lineup for my PPR league:
QB: T Brady
WR: Corey Davis
WR: D Moore
RB: J Conner
Rb: Ito smith
TE: E Ingram
B: L Bell
B: E Sanders
B: S Diggs
would you pickup humphries or M Harris and drop someone on my team?
Forgot – my flex is J Richard
@Blake: Honestly right now no — really the only two people I’d think about dropping is Bell (how lucky do you feel?) and DMoore (could really be a push between himand those 2 other guys)
I’m in a 12 tm half ppr. Currently 7-2 alone in first place and points leader. I had the 12th pick and had held onto the #1 waiver priority all season. I’m somewhat weak at my RB2 spot, hav a few guys that have been more than serviceable. But debating whether to use my #1 waiver on Duke or not. With Dion looking good the last few weeks, maybe I don’t need to and he’s my guy going forward at RB2? What do you think? Or any other moves to consider? Thanks!
We start – 2/2/2 flex (w-r-te)
QB – Brees
RB – McCaffrey, Dion, Ito, Thompson, J Adams, McGuire, CJ
WR – Thielen, Odell, Gordon, Funchess, TreQuan
TE – Kittle
@Frank: I’d stick with Dion going forward — he’s had a few big games and I think we’ll see more and more Chubb as the season goes on.
Who’d you rather have ROS? Lamar Miller or Matt Breida?
@Benny: I’d go with Lamar.
12 team PPR
WR Keenan Allen
OP Russ Wilson
Flex Tevin Coleman
Ive been offered:
AB for Keenan & Mack
AB for Keenan & Coleman
AB for Zeke & Alshon
Thoughts, which one you doing?
@Don Majikowski: If you really want to do one of those — I’d do Keenan & Mack
$35 left in my PPR, drop Richard or John Ross and spend it all on Duke?
@IrishMike: I could see dropping Ross for the Duke — save yourself some money just in case you’re in a league that doesn’t allow $0 bids — I’m in one of those myself now and there’s been some controversy.
I have both Cam or Matt Ryan at QB, could sure up my WR’s.
1. Would you take both into the playoffs?
2. If not, which one would you trade considering playoffs?
3. Would you trade one for one of Marvin Jones, Sammy Watkins, or Cory Davis?
also, would you rather have Cobb, Crowder, or Duke Jr? Sorry, greedy with questions today. Thanks!
@miles proudfoot: I’d rank ’em Duke, Cobb, Crowder.
Let’s break it down for the playoffs:
Cam will be playing: CLE, NO, ATL
Ryan will be playing: GB, ARI, CAR
Here are how those defenses rank against QBs:
Cam: 12th in points allowed | 2nd | 3rd
Ryan: 20th | 31st | 15th
I’d go with Cam in the playoffs. There’s always some injury risk with him — but he’s got great playoff match-ups. I’d go for Jones, Watkins, Davis in that order for Ryan. I’d also see who in your league might needs QB help and pounce.
