We’ve crossed over the halfway point in the NFL season. Hopefully, you’re still competing to get into your fantasy league’s playoffs. But, even if that’s the case, you might not know who to start in your lineups. Week 10 Fantasy Football Starts/Sits.
Lucky for you, I got you. Here are my Week 10 Starts and Sits:
Justin Fields has been lighting it up since Week 7. Even against solid defenses like New England and Dallas, Fields has found ways to produce fantasy points. His ability to scramble and comfortability in his offense allows him to flourish. Fields gets a plus matchup this week against a Lions defense that ranks 28th against QBs. Start Fields in Week 10.
The Heinicke story has been awesome. Nearly taking down the Vikings last week was cool to see, and he’s been a decent streaming QB. However, he’s facing a Philadelphia defense that might give him some trouble. Some lockdown corners and a solid pass rush might overwhelm Heinicke, and he feels a bit too risky to start in fantasy this week. Therefore, I’ll leave Taylor Heinicke on the bench this week.
Start: D’Onta Foreman vs. Falcons
A disappointing week from Foreman might make you nervous about starting him again. However, I believe that was an outlier week for Foreman going forward, and he gets a good matchup against a Falcons team that he just tore up a few weeks ago. If you have an RB on a bye, Foreman could be a really solid start this week.
Devin Singletary was barely involved in the Bills’ game plan last week. Even when he sees 15 or more carries, he hasn’t really shown he can do much with it. There’s a possibility Josh Allen could miss some time, but even if he doesn’t, I don’t see the value in Singletary as a starting RB. The Bills face the Vikings this week, a team that ranks 5th against RBs. Keep Singletary on the bench.
Wide Receiver Week 10 Fantasy Football Starts/Sits
JuJu has come alive in the last few weeks. With over 100 receiving yards in 2 of the Chiefs’ previous three games, he has proven that he’s the WR1 on that offense. The Chiefs should tear apart Jacksonville’s struggling secondary, and JuJu should get the bulk of those WR targets. I expect another big week for JuJu, so make sure to have him in your lineups this week.
After a hot start, Drake London has really cooled down. He hasn’t been able to put up more than 8 points in PPR formats, and he hasn’t broken 50 receiving yards since Week 3. The Falcons’ first-round rookie is being held back due to the heavy run game with Marcus Mariota and Cordarelle Patterson; nonetheless, he isn’t a starting fantasy WR as of right now, so he shouldn’t be in your lineups. Keep London on the bench this week.
Tight End Week 10 Fantasy Football Starts/Sits
The part that makes Zach Ertz such a great fantasy tight end is consistency. Ertz is consistently putting up the numbers you desire from that position. He has 10+ PPR points in all but one week and is one of Kyler Murray’s favorite red zone targets. Even with DeAndre Hopkins back, Ertz’s volume hasn’t decreased. He’s still reliable as ever, and he should be in your lineups against the Rams in Week 10.
Even in a game where the Dolphins scored 32 points, Mike Gesicki only saw two targets the entire game. This week, Gesicki goes against the 6th ranked defense against tight ends in the Browns. I’m worried this trend continues, and he, once again, might not see the volume to put up starting TE numbers. So keep Gesicki on your bench in Week 10.
