• Daniel Jones, Giants @ Jets … Jones should be a solid play, while technically on the road against the Jets, if he can avoid throwing interceptions.  Fortunately the Jets rarely pick off passes
  • Ryan Tannehill, Titans v. Chiefs … Tannehill has been completing 71% of his passes and he should be throwing a lot against Kansas City, theortically playing catch up. As a bonus, Tannehill could gain a few years on the ground after scampering for 38 yards against Carolina.

 Running Backs

  • Ronald Jones II, Buccaneers v. Cardinals … while Arizona has improved against RBs this season compared to last, they are still allowing over 100 yards per game (104.4) which is good news for Jones who, after a strong week 9 performance, received a vote of confidence from Head Coach Bruce Arians
  • Kalen Ballage, Dolphins @ Colts … it's about opportunity and Ballage is the new starter in Miami after a trade and a suspension
  • Darrell Henderson Jr., Rams @ Steelers … Before the bye week we last saw Henderson carrying the load at the end of the game with Todd Gurley on the sideline with a bum knee

 Wide Receivers

  • Zach Pascal, Colts v. Dolphins … The Pascal performance roller coaster (23 points, 1 point, and 14 points) should continue its ride up against Miami who’s given up 13 TDs (Tied for the most in the NFL)
  • Davante Parker, Dolphins @ Colts … On the other side of this matchup, Parker is in play as Miami’s #1, after catching TDs in 4 of his last 5 games
  • Alex Erickson, Bengals v. Ravens … Pending A.J. Green's return, the Cincinnati target hog will be going up against a Baltimore secondary that has allowed the 3rd most catches per game (14.3) and 4th most yards per game (193.4)

 Tight Ends

  • Cameron Brate, Buccaneers v. Cardinals … Saw 6 targets in week 9 and gets a very favorable matchup against Arizona in week 10
  • Irv Smith Jr., Vikings @ Cowboys … Has seen 6, 3, and 6 targets the last 3 weeks and faces a Dallas D that has allowed the 5th most FPP this season
  • Mike Gesicki, Dolphins @ Colts … Gesicki has recorded at least 40 yards and 3 of the last four games and Colts over the last 5 weeks have allowed at least 7 targets per game

Now more powerful than ever: The Machine - DFS Lineup Optimizer


  • Colts @ Dolphins … get to face the Dolphins who have allowed D's to score at least 10 fantasy points in every game this season … except last week
  • Ravens @ Bengals … Baltimore’s defense seemed to regain their swagger against New England and should continue to walk all over Cincinnati who’s starting rookie Ryan Finley at QB
  • Chiefs @ Titans … while not known for stopping teams in real life, as a fantasy player, Kansas City's D has averaged 8.4 FPP (7th in the NFL) with their 25 sacks


  • Matt Gay, Buccaners v. Cardinals … this game has the highest over under of the week at 52.5
  • Dan Bailey, Viking @ Cowboys … this season Bailey has hit 85.7% of his kicks and is 3rd in extra points (24)
  • Chris Boswell, Steelers v. Rams … has hit 13 of 14 kicks this season and 6 kicks between 40-49 yards, netting that extra bonus point
