Fantasy Football 2018: NFL Week 10 Checklist

Need some tricks to assemble your fantasy programming for the 10th week? With four other teams on the week, we have traveled the confines of the Internet and gathered only the best tips and tricks of fantasy for your consumption. Below, you'll find nuggets easy to digest from several fantasy experts, addressing some of the critical situations that fantasy owners will face from week to week.

Dig in and dominate.

Injury decisions

Chris Carson, RB, Seahawks: Carson missed training for the second day in a row on Thursday, and Carson owners will likely want an alternative to the tenth week game against the Rams in Seattle. The Los Angeles defense, although talented, is yielding the yards, so if you have Carson's backup, Mike Davis (further down), that would definitely be an option. Carson will probably be a decision to make at the time of the match, but given his fragility, it is a difficult recommendation.

Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars: The owners of Fournette can rejoice; the Jacksonville running back is fully trained all week. We could see some time share in the first week of Fournette, but it's a win if the Jaguars hope to return to the playoff game. The owners of Fournette have obviously had to replace him in their lineups for most of the season, but they do not want to have him on the sidelines if he breaks out. It is difficult to recommend, but it is more difficult to assess if it has been a full participant.

A J. Green, WR, Bengals: According to reports, Green will miss at least two games. This is a blow for green homeowners, but that does not seem to be long term.

Rob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots: Gronkowski remains limited in practice and his status for the 10th week contest in New England is uncertain. Keep watching and have an alternative alternative end in case he misses another week.

Sony Michel, RB, Patriots: The New England offense has been limited in practice, but should return for the team's game against the Titans in the tenth week. Michel began to make his mark before suffering another setback. He also shares backfield tasks with James White, who has been great. Watch for Michel's status as the game is approaching. Tennessee has been impressive in defense and if Michel wants to see a few shots, other options might be the way to go.


Duke Johnson, RB, Browns: The owners of Johnson finally got what they were looking for this season with running back Cleveland. After attending 74 receptions in 2017, Johnson was in high demand in PPR-based fantasy leagues. And although the Browns still have a little more life this season, Johnson's production has not lived up to its expectations. However, with the sending of Carlos Hyde a few weeks back and the installation of a new offensive coordinator, Johnson may have recovered his role of blocker in the offensive Browns. Although you can not count on the two touchdowns that Johnson scored in Week 9, another strong day of reception against visiting Falcons is certainly feasible. It should be in your alignment.

Aaron Jones, RB, Packers: It has been a process, but Jones finally seems to be the best dog in Green Bay, although his owners are probably wondering what took so long. Jones has back-to-back games with 14 and 16 keys. The role of Jamal Williams continues to shrink, not to mention the departure of Ty Montgomery. The Packers are at home after two heavy defeats against the Rams and the Patriots. The 10th week promises to be very competitive against the Dolphins, who have been generous with the half-rivals opposite. Start Jones with confidence.

Dion Lewis, RB, Titans: Lewis had his two best games since the first week of the season and was very impressive in the Tennessee win over the Cowboys. Given his versatility, there is no reason for him not to continue to have the lion's share. He will be playing against his old team, the Patriots, in Week 10. It will probably take a lot of Lewis to repeat the numbers he has published in the past two weeks, but the defense of New England is often based on a turn-do-break philosophy. Lewis should be able to provide a usable game to his owners this weekend. And some are on Lewis for the rest of the season.

Brand Valdes-Scantling, WR, Packers: Randall Cobb's injuries led Geronimo Allison to enter Green Bay's home corps. Allison then had injury problems after good performances and the emptiness for the Packers begins to be filled by Valdes-Scantling. In the past four games, Valdes-Scantling has scored two goals and played two games with more than 100 yards. He is a great athlete and, with Allison indefinitely, Valdes-Scantling has a chance to contribute greatly to fantasy. Owners should consider it if they need a WR2 / flex game; a computer model certainly likes the match for Valdes-Scantling.

Lottery tickets that could pay

Mike Davis, RB, Seahawks: Davis took over with teammate Chris Carson for injuries. Davis has produced three double-digit performances over the last five games. Seattle faces the Rams for the second time this season; Davis rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown during his previous meeting. If you have Carson, owning Davis is a must. If you're just a homeowner looking for a semi-offensive, Davis might be a usable option.

Ito Smith, RB, Falcons: After the Atlanta break week, all that Smith did was to score his best game of the season in the win over the Redskins in Week 9. Smith won 60 yards in 10 races and scored for the fourth time in five games. Now, the Falcons go to Cleveland, where the Browns' defensive unit, which has been 14 times this season, is waiting for the worst, the worst in the league. Smith remains available in 58% of ESPN leagues.
