The tenth week of the fantasy football season is here and that means that bye weeks are just about over. There are still plenty of things to think about before setting your final lineup, so here are my five final bold fantasy predictions.
1. There Will Be Plenty Of Passing Touchdowns This Week
Some of the best quarterbacks in football will be facing off against some of the worst pass defenses in Week 10. Quarterbacks Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Tony Romo, Philip Rivers, and Russell Wilson all have cupcake matchups this week. There will be plenty of passing touchdowns this weekend, so hopefully you can take advantage of the favorable fantasy matchups.
2. RB Andre Brown Will Score In His 2013 Debut
It is true that this is Brown’s first game back with the New York Giants this season after breaking his leg in the final preseason game, but the team desperately needs a back to step up. Brown likely won’t get more than 18 total touches in the game, as the team will try to ease him back into action, but I fully expect him to score a touchdown in his debut.
3. RB Chris Johnson Will Have Another Big Game
The Jacksonville Jaguars are currently ranked 32nd in the league against the run and giving up an astonishing 161.8 yards per game. Johnson has averaged 140 total yards over the last two weeks and the back is finally breaking out of his shell for fantasy owners. This week’s matchup versus the Jags couldn’t have come at a better time for CJ2K.
4. QB Ben Roethlisberger Will Have 3 TDs & 280 Yards
The Buffalo Bills have allowed a NFL-high 20 passing touchdowns this year. The unit has allowed big fantasy performances to every opposing quarterback and that trend should continue this Sunday. If you own Big Ben, get him in your lineup immediately.
Houston is scoring just 18.3 points per game, while Arizona is scoring 20 points per game. Neither offense has looked good lately and it could get worse if Houston’s top two running backs don’t play. If you own anyone in this game, start them with caution because it could get ugly.
