I feel really bad for Dez Bryant. It’s the only human reaction to have when somebody has something happen to them that derails a dream or destiny, I suppose. Another part of me hates this because I wanted to be right about him being a non-factor for the Saints. That’s obviously the least important part of this whole Dez Bryant roller coaster. I hope that you didn’t sell out for the dream of early 2010’s Dez Bryant, but if you did, let me help you out in the comment section.

There are some other things to point out going into week 10. I love Josh Gordon’s match up against Malcolm Butler. It’s not even really a hot take to think that this is going to be Josh’s biggest game so far this season. Leonard Fournette is expected back today. I think that you can go ahead and put him in your lineup right away. After all, this is the healthiest that he might be for the rest of the season. But seriously, this is a pretty nice match-up for him. 

Moving onto Le’veon Bell. It looks like he is going to sit for the rest of the 2018 season. Maybe the folks that looked a little deeper into the cryptic ‘pass the sticks’ tweet were right after all. With Bell not likely to report by Tuesday, it looks like James Conner is the biggest value of the 2018 draft season. Congratulations if you were able to scrounge up some shares.

    Good morning on this Sunday of week 10 action!

    .5 ppr league here I’ve been streaming at QB I added Fitzpatrick this week should I hold him or look to trade for deshaun Watson? An owner in my league has both Watson & Matt Ryan I think I could get Watson at right price.

    I’m just worried if fitz has a bad half one of these games then gets benched after halftime

    Fitzpatrick remaining schedule:

    Week 11: @ giants

    Week 12: vs niners

    Week 13: vs panthers

    Week 14: vs saints

    Week 15: @ Baltimore

    Week 16; @ Dallas

    ——

    Watson remaining schedule:

    Week 11:, @ Washington

    Week 12: vs Titans

    Week 13: browns

    Week 14: vs colts

    Week 15: @ jets

    Week 16: @ philly

    I was thinking offering Brieda straight up for Watson or Brieda + Humpries. Or Brieda + Kerryon for Watson

    My rbs are DJ, Melvin Gordon, Mixon, Brieda, Kerryon, Ekeler, Elijah McGuire, donta foreman

    My WRs are Hilton, Kupp, Tyler Boyd, Sterling Shepard, amari Cooper, Golladay , Doug Baldwin , Humphries

    Next Q, with the dez news I dropped him for Humpries- good move or should I have added either Anthony Miller, tre Quan Smith, John Ross, stills, David Moore.
    Or should I have added a second TE for the stretch run? My starter is OJ Howard. Available TEs are CJ Uzomah, Vernon Davis, Ben Watson , Chris Herndon, Vance McDonald is on waivers for next week.

    Thanks man!

      I definitely think that you are onto something. Yeah Breida straight up ought to get it done. Only thing that I worry about with Watson is Houston’s lack of volume in the passing game. But he’s a safe weekly play, especially with that playoff schedule

    • MB

      MB says:

      And good move on Humphries

      • Teddy says:
        (link)

        @MB:

        Thanks man! I mean if I can get Ryan I’ll pull the trigger but I should’ve done that weeks ago after the Pittsburgh game when he had 22 fantasy points but he’s been money all year so maybe too much of a high price

        • MB

          (link)

          Yeah the buy low window has passed

  2. Patrick says:
    (link)

    Any chance you’d start Ingram over Mixon in a PPR league? I started Ingram last week and he put up 2 points but my gut says now on my bench he’ll come back with a huge game in a game that Saints should be milking away the clock

      Not a chance. Don’t want to depend on game flow

    Am I insane for wanting to start Eli Manning this week? He’s been getting to the 300 yard passing point mark recently

      (link)

      Yes you are insane. That being said, he should have a fine week

    I’m torn between Boyd and Jeffery. My fear is All the D has to do is focus on Boyd and make somebody else beat them…that’s how he was successful with Green being the 1. Thoughts?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Good point. I think they are still able to force feed him enough that he has a top 10 day

    I’ve been hit hard with byes this week. Probably need to shoot for the big game based on Thursday results and the other guys team.
    Do I go trequan or john Ross and pray… ?
    my other option is steady but likely unspectacular point total from shepard. Thoughts? Standard league

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      If you want to shoot for the big play I’d say Tre’quan is the best option.

  16. steve stevenson says:
    (link)

    ROS half-PPR, T. Smith or Coutee? This week doesn’t matter though I may have to flex one next week due to byes.

    Standard league, if Cobb sits, start MVS over Edelman? FWIW I have a big lead in my matchup thanks to Roethlisberger.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Coutee. Yes I’d start MVS over Edelman if Cobb doesn’t play

  17. Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
    (link)

    there ya go KC, don’t guard DJ on the 5 or whatever yard line, ARI has SOOOO many other weapons to beat you.

    – i’m actually quite happy with this, have DJ in 3 leagues now with a dynasty trade i made last week, including yr RCL (the last minute drafted before season one) where i need wins badly. new coaching regime IS using him like arians nation used to as well.

    • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:

      @Eli Man Penguin Boy: well JAX just did the same damn thing with ebron, and i own doyle everywhere but not ebron (clearly the D are targeting doyle)

      DJ has a sexy schedule coming up too

  18. Eli Man Penguin Boy says:

    C’MON CLE, in a survivor pool where NOBODY has gone out in like 4 or 5 weeks (still 26 left out of 48). ok, 2 went out a few weeks ago, but nobody else. a bunch of people got cute and picked ATL on the road with their D. if you plan this stuff in advance you never need to take a bad D on the road (worst i ever picked was DEN @ OAK back in like week 3 or 2, but that was during the rebuy period pre week 5). really dodging ANY road games except say top tier teams on road (i did go NE @ IND)

    • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
      (link)

      @Eli Man Penguin Boy: for example nobody picked NE this week (albeit like a full 3rd of us did in that @ IND game)

      • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
        (link)

        @Eli Man Penguin Boy: oh baby i miscounted it was 5 people out of 26 picked ATL @ CLE. last year at this time this same pool (with maybe 4 more people in it than this year) only had 4 people left going into week 10, now 21 left with week 10 over half over, only PHI/GB pickers left undecided)

  19. Water boy says:
    (link)

    Hey man so my week 10 looks like I’m screwed! I started both Mixon & Boyd , cincy is down 35-7 at the half & the bengals O looks like crap!

    Oh I’m also pissed looks like the trade I did last week was horrible, I dealt my Keenan Allen + Chubb for his Mixon & Golladay. So far he won that trade by a landslide, if Golladay doesn’t get double digit fantasy points this week or next week- same with Mixon I may have to revisit the trade I feel robbed! This will be an interesting thanksgiving lol that trade was with my brother in law & ive tried to get only get Chubb he rejected it . I tried to redo the whole deal to get Keenan & chubb back for Mixon & Golladay he rejected them he doesn’t text me – he texts my wife (his sister) saying “is there a glitch with espn why is he sending the same trade I sent him?”
    He’s one of those Ivy League guys who went to Dartmouth who thinks he knows everything. I feel like the way Chubb is playing I should’ve got his Allen Robinson instead of Golladay.
    Are you kidding me as writing this Chubb just ran a 92 yard TD , wtf I’m pissed

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      @Water boy: i’m happy about chubb today (only reason i might have a chance against hill, ebron and the BUF D) but yeah i have mixon in FAR more leagues than chubb (about 5-1 or so) and NO’s smacking down CIN isn’t good for mixon at all. gio B probably ends up highest scoring CIN player by end of today, unless NO really stops playing D, then it’s probably boyd.

  20. Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
    (link)

    holy crap, in biggest money league i was looking near dead, even this early, with doyle/coleman/butker now vs hill, ebron, BUF D (but also howard RB, j.white, doing nothing) AND gurley later, but THEN my chubb does one of those, now i’m barely favored; will at least keep me paying attention to this matchup longer.

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: oh yeah and best spot to find free streams, reddit nfl streams.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: even with that gurley game yahoo is claiming i’m only a slight dog. played against gurley/BUF D (big scoring in this league too for D’s)/ebron/hill and we have 6 pt TD’s and 6 pt bonuses for going over 300/100/100 throwing/rushing/receiving. i’m down 68.75 and have barkley/wentz/jeffery/SF def vs g.tate alone (so blocker in wentz).

        if barkley can put up his average score in this league (27.7) then it’s down to 41.05. def can’t have tate do a lot better than jeffery almost certainly, but even if those 2 near tie i’m in decent shape.

        • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
          (link)

          @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: well looking pretty gross now, i love how the announcers mention that DAL is playing for it’s playoff lives, well sure, but PHI isn’t? at home? in a division game? for other reasons (read: betting longer term stuff) it’ll greatly increase my equity but i have a ton of ertz/wentz/jeffery shares (j.adams too but not starting him anywhere). do have zeke in one spot so if him and/or ertz can scrabble together something nice i’ll win in another spot i probably need to or i’ll be the 2nd best team but will be 5-5. it’s sooo weird to see dak attack look better than wentz attack.

          • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
            (link)

            @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: awuzie getting no credit for 2 awesome passes defended against jeffery to this stage (end of 1st half), at least in yahoo.

            • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
              (link)

              @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: good lord, after about 73% (41ish minutes) or so of the game played it had 19 total points, now with 40 about 8 game minutes later. now i’m back to coin flipping, hell if that 2nd ertz TD went to jeffery i’d be favored. tate’s barely used so far a nice deal.

    if any offense shouldn’t try to throw for it on 4th and 1 at goal line it’s…. you guessed it frank stalone. bad math there, OAK, that’s it. full grudening in effect.

    crizzap, i go back to t.smith (since dez out, had dropped before, this only league where somebody else didn’t WW him when i did this) he gets no targets. half PPR. now kupp is out yet again. rudy’s bots say add them in this order but the moore’s get far too few targets for me generally.
    WR (2): landry (getting to the point where i don’t want to start him anymore), jeffery, kupp, hilton, t.smith (generally i’m sticking michel/gurley/mixon in util slot here)
    have an open IR slot, sounds like kupp’ll go in that. so which are best two out of:
    t.smith, the moores (both SEA/CAR), the TB guys godwin/humphries, j.reynolds (he could be a good handcuff here and i might get lucky and kupp gets ruled out before WW on tuesday night, also i’m guessing i won’t get beat to him in WW’s either)

    • Mr. A Knife says:
      (link)

      @Mr. A Knife: sorry, rudy’s bot has the moore’s (dj then dave) first, then the TB guys. or doctson.

      • Mr. A Knife says:
        (link)

        @Mr. A Knife: sad thing is i went with t.smith over c.davis, who was dropped (after doing nothing for like 6 straight weeks or so) added back before last week. should’ve trusted the bot on that one.
