Week 10 Fantasy Sleepers: Mark Ingram, DeSean Jackson among the players on the start ’em bubble, sit’ em


Again, four teams are on hold in week 10, but three of the four – the Texans, the Giants and the Bears – aren’t teams with a lot of fantasy stallions anyway. That said, we’ll need to find sleepers to replace injured players and Bengals Joe Burrow, Joe Mixon, Ja’Marr Chase, and CJ Uzomah, so we’re here to help fill in the gaps. Whether it’s players on your roster or those sitting on the edge of giving up, there are always guys with sneaky upside in any given week. Mark Ingram and DeSean Jackson are the types of players who get started and sit in bubbles thanks to potentially new roles, and we like their chances enough to put them on our Week 10 fantasy sleeper list.

It is worth noting that any of our selections I could bust this week. We are taking risks here, because we don’t want to tell anyone too obvious. A list of easy choices would be of no use to anyone. You won’t start the guys below with consistent and proven manufacturers, but you probably won’t be looking for fantasy sleepers if your lineup is set. However, even then, our list of sleepers can help you find value in DFS contests, as these players’ prices should be affordable.

WEEK 10 FANTASY: busts | Start them, sit down

Let’s just say week 9 wasn’t the best edition of our sleep choices. We will apologize on behalf of Jordan Love and Jeremy McNichols for the huge disappointments, but the process seemed fair. Derrick Gore, Van Jefferson, and Albert Okwuegbunam didn’t help our case either, but hey, let’s talk about the good. Myles Gaskin, Jerry Jeudy and Pat Freiermuth surpassed expectations, and the Green Bay defense wasn’t a terrible choice either.

Week 10 Fantasy Sleepers: Running back

Myles Gaskin, Dolphins vs. Ravens (Jackson Sparks). Gaskin is certainly a scary RB to trust, but here is a path to fantasy success. Baltimore is conceding the sixth-plus-total receiving yard to the running backs, and this is where Gaskin can take advantage. Baltimore should score with ease Thursday night, so if Tua Tagovailoa (finger) or Jacoby Brissett start QB, they’ll have to attempt a lot of passes to keep up. Gaskin should be the receiving end of several checkdowns, as he sits at No. 4 among the ORs in receptions (37). He is a better player in PPR, but also deserves consideration in standard leagues.

Kenyan Drake, Raiders vs. Chiefs (Vinnie Iyer). He’s been very productive in getting the key touches late after Jon Gruden, and the game’s script says he should be pretty involved as a third weapon behind Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow.

Mark Ingram, Saints @ Titans (Matt Lutovsky). With Alvin Kamara reportedly slammed, the chances are that Ingram will see an increase in contact, regardless of whether Kamara is active or not. Ingram saw 14 touches last week, including five receptions, and finished with a total of 64 yards. It’s not a great matchup, but Ingram is always a threat to a short TD, if nothing else.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Quarterbacks

Matt Ryan, Falcons @ Cowboys (Sparks). Matty Ice was on fire against New Orleans, amassing 343 past yards and three total touchdowns. Against Dallas – a last-place defense against fictional QBs – Ryan may be well on his way to a streak. If it turns out to be a shooting, its ceiling is sky high.

Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers v Lions (Iyer). Big Ben won’t need to throw a ton to beat the Lions, but they also forgo a lot of great off-game games and have been keen on throwing red zone scores lately.

Carson Wentz, Colts versus Jaguars (Lutovsky). Wentz has been a staple on sleeper lists, and until other fictional owners buy it, it will continue to be. He has produced three TDs in three consecutive games and more TDs in all but two this year. Lightning won’t strike twice for Jaguars defense.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Wide Receivers

Rashod Bateman, Ravens @ Dolphins (Sparks). Bateman has scored 20 targets in his first three games as a pro and is preparing to have the most favorable match of his young career. Going into week 10, Miami is giving away the third most fantasy points per game to the WRs, and even as he plays Sammy Watkins (hamstring), we like Bateman’s chances of remaining a key contributor to the attack. We saw Elijah Moore’s breakout game last Thursday, and this looks like the right time for Bateman to take his turn.

Jerry Jeudy, Broncos vs Eagles (Iyer). He’s not hitting the biggest numbers yet, but he’s running a good chunk of routes. If Avonte Maddox (knee) were to lose the game, the Eagles could suffer from slot coverage.

DeSean Jackson, Raiders vs Chiefs (Lutovsky). There aren’t many (good) reasons to go all-in on Jackson in his first game with the Raiders, but there are plenty of funny stories that point to getting him started: a prime-time Vegas game against the horrific defense. of the Chiefs? Looks like he’s hitting with a 50-yard TD, right? D-Jax will effectively replace Henry Ruggs, who averaged 5.1 targets and 67 yards per game this year.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Tight End

Tyler Conklin, Vikings @ Chargers (Sparks). Conklin has averaged seven targets and just over 50 yards in the last two games and draws another easy matchup against Los Angeles. The Chargers have conceded five receiving touchdowns and two over 100-yard performances in eight games, so this may be Conklin’s best play so far. It consolidated as no. 3 in Minnesota, so he will be attractive in all games against TE’s friendly defenses.

Pat Freiermuth, Steelers vs. Lions (Iyer). It’s getting a start to the week on the edge with his key usage through the red zone and Eric Ebron hurting. Detroit was okay against the tight end, but Big Ben trusts him a lot.

Noah Fant, Broncos v Eagles (Lutovsky). Fant jumped last week while on the reserve / COVID list, and before that, he had a two-catch, eight-yard game. At this point, his owners may be fed up with him, so we consider him a “sleeper”. The Eagles are below average against the TEs, so this is a good point for Fant to get back on track.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Defense

Tennessee Titans vs Saints (Sparks). The Titans lead the league in total pressure (100), and we just saw them powerfully with Matthew Stafford and the Rams. Whether Taysom Hill or Trevor Siemian is the quarterback, we like Tennessee to rack up a few sacks and maybe a turnover or two. Kevin Byard is second in the league by interceptions (5) and Harold Landry is third in the league by sack (9.0). Tennessee is also second in the league in defensive touchdowns (3).

Los Angeles Chargers vs Vikings (Iyer). Here we hear a very bad INT by Kirk Cousins ​​turning into a pick.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Broncos (Lutovsky). The Broncos are conceding the ninth most fantasy points per game at D / ST, and with a busted offensive line, we think the Eagles can generate a good run on the passes, which we know they have from their four games this year with a at least three bags. The Eagles will grant yards and a decent amount of points, but they should also get sacks and some takeaways.
