Fantasy Football Week 10 Fill-Ins

With  the Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, Washington Redskins all on byes, and guys like Run DMC, Percy Harvin, and Antonio Brown all banged up, owners everywhere are going to need a quick-fix for week 10.  Well do not fret, because I have a list of players who should help your team towards victory this weekend, and I will break them down by position.

Quarterback: Notable one’s out this week- Aaron Rodgers and RG II

Ryan Tanehill (owned in 10% of leagues, started in 3.5%)

  • facing the Titans in week 10, who allows the 30th most points in fantasy to opposing QBs (19.3 ppg)
  • Titans rank 27th, allowing 274 passing yards/game
  • Titans: rank last in NFL allowing opposing QBs an average rating of 108.4
  • also rank 22nd in NFL with only 14 sacks

Running Backs: Notable one’s out this week- Trent Richardson, Darren McFadden (questionable) and Alfred Morris

Marcel Reece and Taiwan Jones (owned in 0.2 and 2.6 percent of leagues)

  • If Run DMC and Goodson are no-gos (which seems likely) the duo will get the start against the Ravens

Jaquizz Rodgers(owned in 11.5% of leagues)

  • Week 10, facing the Saints who: have conceded 9 rushing TDs (24th in NFL)
  • rank last in NFL, allowing 176.5 yards/game on the ground
  • rank 31st in fantasy, giving up 24 points a game to opposing RBs
  • rank 29th in passs defense (311.4 yards/game) since Rodgers is a dual threat

Wide Receivers: Notable one’s out- Larry Fitzgerald, Jordy Nelson and Percy Harvin (questionable)

Emanuel Sanders (owned in 2% of leagues)

  • if Brown is a no-go, Sanders will see an increase in action

  1. Great article. I have alfred morris as my flex, on his bye this week, do you think I should plug in Mikel Leshoure or Eric Decker, they both had a great game last week, unfortunately on my bench.

    • Leshoure is facing Min who gives up 117 ypg, given up 7 rushing Tds this season, while Decker plays Carolina who gives up 224 passing yards a game and has conceded only 9 passing TDs (6th in the NFL) it’s really ur call, i could see an argument for either side since Decker is on fire lately, but Leshoure matchup is more favorable
