If Aaron Rodgers’ injury wasn’t enough to derail many fantasy football teams this year, the bye weeks and other quarterback injuries are sure to drive owners nuts. Thus, you might need a little help with your starting lineup in Week 10.
Philip Rivers is a must-start this week at quarterback because he’s going up against a Denver Broncos defense that has been shredded this season and this game should be a shootout. On the flip side, Matt Ryan is a must-sit this week because the Seattle Seahawks have been extremely tough on opposing passers this year.
At running back, you can actually start C.J. Spiller with confidence this week. He’s facing a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that has been run over all year and that won’t change this week. However, you should sit Le’Veon Bell because the Buffalo Bills’ defense has been surprisingly stingy against opposing running backs this year.
Alshon Jeffery is a solid start this season because he’s really coming into his own and it doesn’t matter who’s under center for the Chicago Bears. He’ll go off against the Detroit Lions, who have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing receivers over the past month. Cecil Shorts is not a good start this week because the Tennessee Titans’ defense has shut down opposing receivers over the past month and that won’t change this week.
The easy start at tight end is Timothy Wright because he has a terrific matchup against the Miami Dolphins, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this year. The easy sit is Coby Fleener because the St. Louis Rams have been hard on opposing tight ends all year, believe it or not.
The Titans are the best start of the week on defense since they’re facing the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars and the Kansas City Chiefs are on bye. However, sit the fourth-ranked Dallas Cowboys fantasy defense because the Saints will light up the scoreboard all day against Dallas.
And for kickers, act like you know the drill — we don’t do that here. Good luck in Week 10!
