Studs, Duds, and Sleepers: Week 10

November 9, 2018

We’ve officially reached Week 10, which means the trade deadline may have passed in your league and you probably need a win. We have you covered with our studs, duds and sleepers.

QUARTERBACKS
Stud: Baker Mayfield – Mayfield has two touchdown passes in three-straight games. The Browns’ offense should fare well this week against a bad Atlanta defense. The Falcons are allowing the third-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season.

Dud: Aaron Rodgers – Rodgers hasn’t topped 300 yards passing since Week 6. He’s still a QB1, but he’s in the middle of the pack moving forward. The Packers face the Dolphins this week. You’ll probably have to start him in season-long leagues, but there are better daily options out there.

Sleeper: Alex Smith – Smith threw for a season-high 306 yards last week and could stay hot this week against Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers are allowing the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Smith is a nice streaming option in daily leagues.

RUNNING BACKS
Stud: Alvin Kamara – Kamara has 12 touchdowns this season. He has the third-most fantasy points among all players so far this year. That trend should continue this week against a Bengals team allowing the fifth most fantasy points to opposing defenses this season.

Dud: LeSean McCoy – McCoy has been outscored by Wendell Smallwood, Austin Ekeler, Nick Chubb and Mike Davis this season. He’s on a bad offense and is impossible to trust if you have him on your team. He’s droppable in most formats and shouldn’t be in your lineup.

Sleeper: Kapri Bibbs – Bibbs had a touchdown reception last week and is a sneaky sleeper with Chris Thompson out again. Tampa Bay has allowed the seventh most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season.

WIDE RECEIVER
Stud: Josh Gordon – Gordon has 100 yards or more in two out of his last three g?ames. He has at least four receptions in his last four games and continues to grow into his role with New England. He goes up against a Titans’ defense allowing the ninth-most fantasy points so far this season.

Dud: T.Y. Hilton – Hilton should be healthy coming off of a bye week, but he could struggle this week against the Jacksonville secondary. This is his first of two matchups against the Jaguars in the next month. Hilton is a boom-or-bust WR2.

Sleeper: Maurice Harris – Harris exploded with 10 receptions for 124 yards last week. He faces a weak Tampa Bay defense this week and could stay hot. Jamison Crowder isn’t practicing and the Buccaneers allow the second-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

TIGHT END
Stud: George Kittle – Kittle has four or more receptions in eight out of nine games this season. He’s the third highest scoring tight end in PRR leagues going into Week 10. He will be a high-end TE1 moving forward.

Dud: Rob Gronkowski – Gronk has struggled this season, he’s battling multiple injuries and has a tough matchup this week. Avoid him in daily leagues. It may be best for him and your fantasy team to sit this week out heading into the bye week to get as healthy as possible for a stretch run.

Sleeper: C.J. Uzomah – Uzomah has a favorable schedule for the rest of the season and should see more targets with A.J. Green out for two games or more. He gets a Saints’ defense that has fared well against tight ends. Uzomah does have some streaming appeal if you need him.

DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS
Stud: New York – The Jets are a top defense this week. They get an awful Buffalo offense at home. Fire them up in daily and season-long formats.

Dud: Jacksonville – Some fantasy owners may think this is a good matchup, but Andrew Luck is playing well and should continue to do so at home. The Jags are a mid-level defense for Week 10 and I’m avoiding them in daily leagues.

Sleeper: Cleveland – The Browns have forced 23 turnovers and 22 sacks this year. They get an Atlanta offense that is dangerous, but they’re not the same team on the road. The Browns are a sneaky streaming option this week.
