2022 Week 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers

🚨 WARNING 🚨 These are sleepers. It won’t mimic my ranking 100%. This runs the gamut and often carries more risk.

QUARTERBACK

POSSIBLE STARTER: Daniel Jones, NYG β€” Jones had his worst game of the season early, but ran into a sneakily decent defense (Seahawks). With a week off to reset and plan for the Texans’ matchup, Jones should recover … well, mostly for the matchup, not so much for Jones’ passing ability. Indeed Jones’ legs increase his fantasy value, with three games of 68+ yards and two games of 20+ points coming with a rushing touchdown (or two). Hopefully Jones doesn’t choke like he did in Week 8.


RUNNING BACK

POSSIBLE STARTER: Rachaad White, TB β€” According to reports, the Buccaneers could lean on White more as the season winds down, and he could start this week against the Seahawks. Although the Seahawks’ receiver defense is better than expected, they are very vulnerable to pass-catching running backs, as Austin Ekeler destroyed them with a 12-12-96-1 line, Alvin Kamara received 6-6-91, Javonte Williams went 12-11-65-0 in Week 1 and even James Conner went 5-5-19 in his return last week.

HAIL MARY START: Isiah Pacheco, KC β€” As mentioned in the podcast, I want nothing to do with the Chiefs, Broncos, Rams and Bills… if possible. Yes, we will probably have to use someone every week, especially with the Chiefs and Bills offenses, and this time we can fight for Pacheco’s side. That lies in the hope of a touchdown and a run while maintaining a lead. The backfield is quite a committee with Jerick McKinnon outdoing the others, but Pacheco would likely see more running (no pun intended) with a healthy lead, which the Chiefs should have against the Jaguars.


WIDE RECEIVER

POSSIBLE STARTER: DeAndre Carter, LAC β€” Josh Palmer’s advice is paying off well, so let’s turn to Carter this week. He was a solid option in Week 9, but has upside against the 49ers, despite what it might look like on paper. The 49ers are near the top of the league in receptions of 20+ yards allowed and, yes, a few of them went to Cooper Kupp alone, but even the Panthers had four such receptions in Week 5. Carter has big playmaking potential with a 10.4 Air/TGT and 20.8% of his receptions going 20+ yards, despite playing mostly out of the slot. There is a good chance that Carter will succeed and not fail.

POSSIBLE STARTER: Wan’Dale Robinson, NYG β€” From Weeks 6-8, Robinson is tied with Darius Slayton for the team lead in field goal percentage (17.6) and has the most receptions (11) while being just one of three players to catch a touchdown. That’s it with his 3-2-15-0 record before the bye (thanks, Daniel Jones). Hopefully he will emulate the previous two games, as the matchup is favorable (Texans), as long as the Giants don’t go out too early and run out of time.

HAIL MARY START: Donovan Peoples-Jones, CLE β€” Strangely, Amari Cooper dominates at home and struggles a bit on the road, where DPJ appeared. The Browns have gone three games on the road to five at home, yet Peoples-Jones is 20-13-215 on the road and 26-17-202 at home. The Browns also head to Miami in what we can hope for a shootout and the second game of Jacoby Brissett attempting 40+ passes this year.


TIGHT END

HAIL MARY START: Cade Otton, TB β€” Even if Cameron Brate returns, I’m willing to gamble on Otto, who is third on the team in TmTGT% as of Week 4 (Brate played in Weeks 4 and 6). Otton is also second in targets in the Red Zone and End Zone during the stretch, going 30-22-242-1. What really helps is the matchup with the Seahawks. No opponent managed to score at least 5.2 points per game – TJ Hockenson destroyed them in Week 4, Zach Ertz went a nice 5-40-1 last week, and even Tanner Hudson went 3-58 for the Giants. -0.


Fun with ranking!
The best food for football parties

This week I’m back on the food and have a big appetite to fight off this flu…or whatever it is. I’ve always gone the hungry route when I’m sick β€” some people don’t want to eat anything β€” so I thought, β€œWhy not rank the top 10 foods for football parties?” After all, it’s the middle of the NFL season, so let’s dig in… to the lines… and some great food. I am glad to hear your suggestions as well. I always love trying new foods/snacks.

  1. Pizza β€” Why even have a football party if you don’t have pizza? I’ll even take multiple varieties of pizza β€” bites, rolls, bread, etc. β€” in addition to regular pizza.
  2. Buffalo Chicken Dip β€” I can only assume that the heavenly streets are this delicious. I have to share it on a plate or I would devour the whole bowl.
  3. Wings β€” It would rank better if it weren’t for the constant need for napkins/handkerchiefs. The Louisiana flavor is my favorite (Wingstop or my own).
  4. Sliders β€” It’s really a separate category, but whether it’s burgers, barbecue, chicken, etc., they’re essential, especially because they’re easier to eat than a full-sized burger.
  5. Soft pretzels β€” Maybe I’m crazy, but I absolutely love me some soft pretzels β€” whether it’s a giant pretzel that everyone shares, nibbles on, or full pretzels β€” and there are so many variations, from salt to cinnamon sugar to everything and more.
  6. Buffalo Chicken Rolls β€” They’re kind of like spring rolls (size and composition), but only filled with buffalo chicken. Easy to make, eat and love.
  7. Chips β€” Utz over Lays!
  8. Pigs in a blanket β€” Did you know that the plural is pig in blankets? Sweet, huh?
  9. Mac and cheese β€” Simple side, super tasty and you can add different twists.
  10. Taco/Layer Dip/Nachos β€” You could argue that this should be ranked higher, and I won’t argue too much, but the buffalo chicken dip is far better, and I hate beans, especially refried glop in dip. If you leave out the beans, I’ll dive in!

BONUS: Monkey Bread β€” If you’ve never had one (maybe you haven’t figured out what it’s called), do yourself a favor and make some next time. Like chicken wings, it involves a lot of hand cleaning afterwards, but this is what the clouds in the sky have. Think the middle of a Cinnabon – you get that in every bite!


BUYS AND SELLS

He is shopping

  • Justin Herbert, QB, LAC β€” I’m far from a Herbert apologist, but he hasn’t had a complete set of weapons this year, and if Keenan Allen and/or Mike Williams can return, the Chargers have a middle-of-the-road schedule, as Herbert still has plenty of upside.
  • Michael Carter, RB, NYJ β€” Yes, the division of the backfield, but a favorable schedule, and the managers could think about “high sales” after a good game.
  • Gus Edwards, RB, BAL β€” Ravens bye, Edwards is the leader when healthy and should be back in Week 11.
  • Courtland Sutton, WR, DEN β€” He was here last week, because Jerry Jeudy had a bad stretch earlier this year, and now Sutton is in the middle of his. I don’t expect a Top 20 ROS for Sutton, but the managers are dropping him completely.
  • Diontae Johnson, WR, PIT β€” Also here last week, as Chase Claypool was leaving the tight end for Kenny Pickett, and the volume was already high with Johnson anyway.
  • Michael Pittman, WR, IND β€” Sam Ehlinger at quarterback is a concern, but Pittman is still in the WR3 conversation along with similar other boom/bust options like Gabriel Davis.
  • Pat Freiermuth, TE, PIT β€” As with Johnson, Freiermuth will benefit from Claypool not being included in the equation.

Selling

  • Justin Fields, QB, CHI β€” We talked about Fields ROS The Athletic Fantasy Football floor, and he’s nearing the Top 5 at QB, but some have already put him there. I’d still take Tua Tagovailoa, so if others in your league see him as better than Joe Burrow/Kyler Murray/etc., you’re getting maximum return β€” even if Fields continues this… run.
  • Joe Mixon, RB, CIN β€” Not just because of all those touchdowns in Week 9, but the Bengals have one of the worst quarterback schedules in the fantasy playoffs.
  • Josh Jacobs, RB, LV β€” It might be a tough sell on Jacobs right now, but you can tell it’s just a stretch for the Raiders, when in reality, the schedule doesn’t look great from Weeks 14-17, and the Raiders could start looking at 2023.
  • Tyler Boyd, WR, CIN β€” It seems obvious, but there are plenty of inexperienced managerial alliances that could bite with Ja’Marr Chase.
  • Darnell Mooney, WR, CHI β€” Fields made plenty of shots with Claypool in his first game with the Bears. Mooney has lined up as the volume king in the Bears’ passing game, and Mooney’s drop of even five percentage points in TmTGT% would be a huge blow to his value.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Projections

🚨 HEADS UP 🚨 They may differ from mine and my ranks ranks are the order I would start players outside of additional context, such as “Maximum growth required, even if risky.” Also, based on 4 point TD for QB, 6 point rest and Half-PPR
