Week 10 Fantasy Insider

Sleeper Starters

1. Joe Flacco – QB – Baltimore – @ Seattle: The Ravens are still flying high after a last second victory over their archrival Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday. The game-winning drive, highlighted by a touchdown throw from Flacco, will surely boost his confidence and translate into solid play versus a Seattle secondary that is beaten and bruised from a week prior.

2. Jacoby Ford – WR – Oakland – @ San Diego: With a rusty Carson Palmer waiting to show signs of consistency Ford could see a considerable amount of throws go his way. With a match-up against the Chargers all but guaranteeing a high scoring affair Ford is a great option.

3. Willis McGahee – RB – Denver – @ Kansas City: If you ask Willis, he’s the greatest running back in the NFL. Last week he backed up his mouth with some quality production. The Kansas City Chiefs sport a lackluster run defense, enabling McGahee another chance to shine for his team and yours.

Bench ‘em

1. Jay Cutler – QB – Chicago – vs. Detroit: Cutler lit the Eagles secondary up this week thanks to one necessity; he was not sacked. The Detroit Lions sport a harrowing defensive line that has the ability to shut down the run, forcing Cutler to obvious passing situations. It could be a long day for the Vanderbilt product.

2. Early Doucet – WR – Arizona – @ Philadelphia: The Eagles were torched last week against the Bears and will work diligently to turn things around. With most of the attention placed on Larry Fitzgerald the school of thought is that Doucet will be open, but with a 2nd string QB and a lackluster offensive line Doucet won’t get the chance to produce.

3. Rashard Mendenhall – RB – Pittsburgh – @ Cincinnati: His production this year does not justify his relatively high selection in many leagues. The Bengals strength this year is their defense, which will surely look to make the Steelers one-dimensional. If Mendenhall can’t find the cracks in the line there is an ample backup that coach Mike Tomlin is not afraid to replace him with.

Free Agent Frenzy

1. Earl Bennett – WR – Chicago – vs Detroit: Bennett emerged as Cutler’s favorite target last Monday versus an underwhelming Eagles defense. The match-up does not bode well for his QB to get much time in the pocket, but Bennett may become Cutler’s failsafe option.

2. Roy Helu – RB – Washington – @ Miami: Playing anyone on the Redskins offense is a gutsy call, but with a glowing endorsement from his coach, and the understanding that Ryan Torain won’t be seeing the field much, if at all, Helu, who can catch the ball out of the backfield as well as run, is a decent option in a deep league.

3. Matt Moore – QB – Miami – vs. Washington: The reigning NFC Offensive player of the week, Moore will look to compound his efforts last week with another solid performance. He’s still available in nearly 95% of most fantasy leagues, and is as promising an option as Tim Tebow with absolutely no risk.
