NFL Week 10 Value Picks

NFL Week 10 Value Picks

Quarterbacks

 

Blake Bortles (JAX @ BAL) At 314 passing yards allowed per game, Oakland’s Defense has been the weakest against the pass this year by a significant margin.  While Bortoles has had shockingly high numbers of interceptions in the past 4 games, he has matched that with impressive passing yards and touchdowns giving him reliable fantasy value.  With this matchup and his minimal salary, he could be a key pick in NFL daily fantasy in week 10.

 

Projection: 22.7 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $5800

 

 

Andy Dalton (HOU @ CIN) Andy Dalton has been on fire this year so far leading the Bengals to an undefeated season so far.  The Bengals shouldn’t have much in their way this week in what should be a high scoring blowout.  Dalton’s fantasy value could be hurt though if they get ahead too early and resort to the run game.

 

Projection: 27.5 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $7000

 

 

Joe Flacco (JAX @ BAL) Oakland should not have much opposition in the pass game either.  Flacco has provided strong numbers this year.  He may be limited on his targets however with Steve Smith out and Crockett Gilmore questionable for this weekend.

 

Projection: 22.5 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $5500

 

 

Running Backs

 

James Starks (DET @ GB) Green Bay has passed over the duties of primary running back from Eddie Lacy to James Starks this week.  The Packers should be up early on the Lions then likely will resort to the run game to run out the time.  Starts will get plenty of attempts this week.  Plus Detroit has allowed the third most rushing yards per game of all NFL teams at 134 yards.

 

Projection: 19.7 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $5000

 

 

TJ Yeldon (JAX @ BAL) Yeldon has been a decent fantasy option this year but considering the huge number of attempts he gets, his upside potential is far higher than what we have seen.  He will match those attempts with a couple receptions as well to add to his fantasy value.

 

Projection: 18.9 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $5400

 

Demarco Murray (MIA @ PHI) Miami has the second worst rush defense in the league, only beating out the Browns on that list.  Demarco Murray has taken over the lion’s share of the Eagles rushing game and with his talent, he could explode for a big performance this week.  He is one of the more expensive backs but he will be worth the cash this week providing big fantasy value.

 

Projection: 22.2 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $6400

 

 

 

Wide Receivers

 

Allen Robinson (JAX @ BAL) I already mentioned how weak Oakland’s secondary is and Robinson is Bortles’ primary receiver, especially down the field.  While he doesn’t get a huge number of receptions, those he does get are typically long balls and touchdown opportunity catches.

 

Projection: 26.4 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $6900

 

 

Kamar Aiken (JAX @ BAL) Same goes for Aiken, with Steve Smith out and Gilmore questionable, Aiken is the primary target for Flacco.  He comes at a very cheap price and should get plenty of targets this week.

 

Projection: 22.5 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $4200

 

 

Michael Crabtree (MIN @ OAK) Crabtree showed great synergy with Carr last week, even outperforming Amari Cooper.  Despite his two touchdowns and 100+ receiving yards last week, he still comes at a cheap price.

 

Projection: 25.1 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $5900

 

 

 

Tight Ends

 

Jordan Reed (NO @ WAS)  Reed is a prime value pick this weekend at tight end against the very weak Saints pass defense.  He is the primary red zone target for Cousins and they will need to pass the ball a lot to keep up with the Saints offense.

 

Projection: 21.9 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $4800

 

 

Gary Barnage (CLE @ PIT) Barnage has caught over 600 receiving yards this season for 6 touchdowns.  He has been a consistent performer on the brown’s team that has had very little consistency in personnel or performance.

Projection: 16.8 Fantasy Points

Fanpicks Salary: $5000
