Week 10 of the 2016 NFL season is upon us. This week, the Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions, and Indianapolis Colts take the week off. Today is also election day in the US, and regardless of your political stance, if you are able to vote, please do so. Voting is a privilege we take for granted all too often, but let's take a moment to remember the sacrifices made by so many so that we are able to vote. I'd like to say thank you to all who have made sacrifices for our nation to ensure the rights that we hold dear as Americans. That being said, the fantasy regular season is quickly nearing its conclusion, which means that you want to make a strong final push towards the playoffs. You might need some streamers to help you towards the postseason, either to cover injuries or to fill in on bye. Who am I considering this week? Here are some thoughts. Hope this helps, and happy streaming!--Mike B.
Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens. While Average Joe isn't a guy you want to depend on as an every week starter, against the Browns, he will put up above average numbers. Get that man into your lineup this week.
Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles. Wentz is emerging as a solid option on a seemingly weekly basis. He's not quite an every week fantasy starter, but he is a guy that will keep you competitive as a fill in. If you're current quarterback is on bye, give Wentz a long look this week. He faces the Falcons, who give up tons of points to opposing quarterbacks.
Kenneth Dixon, RB, Baltimore Ravens. Dixon is starting to earn a bigger workload for the Ravens. That means you should start paying more attention to him as a fantasy player. He's one of the best RBs of his draft class, and will only improve with more looks.
DuJuan Harris, RB, San Francisco 49ers. With Carlos Hyde once again injured, Harris stepped in and had a phenomenal game. He's worth an add even if you're just holding onto him as an insurance policy for Hyde. If he starts, you should start him.
Chris Ivory, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars. Ivory finally broke out in a big way for the Jaguars this week. Their new offensive coordinator has found ways to use him, and he could put up some solid points totals down the stretch. Well worth a grab, especially if you're thin at the position.
Dion Lewis, RB, New England Patriots. Lewis has a very good chance of being back for New England this week. That means he should be owned in your league, especially in a PPR setting. If he's on waivers, go get him.
Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets. Powell always has flex potential. If you're thin at RB and need a one week fill in, he's worth a look.
Thomas Rawls, RB, Seattle Seahawks. Rawls could be back in time for week 11. Especially if you're in a small league with small rosters, Rawls could be a guy sitting on waivers due to his injury. Don't be too slow to pick him up. Grab him now before it's too late.
Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati Bengals. Marvin Lewis likes to bring along his rookies slowly. Now, 10 weeks into the season and after the bye, Boyd should start seeing a bigger role in the Bengals offense. Back in week 8, he had 5 catches. With no surefire #2 established in Cincinnati, Boyd could emerge in that role soon.
Taylor Gabriel, WR, Atlanta Falcons. In a deep league and desperate at the position? Gabriel is a player for you. He had a surprisingly big week 9, and could build off of that this week. Not a guy you need in smaller leagues, but in large leagues, he is definitely worth monitoring.
Adam Humphries, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Humphries is a surprisingly important piece of the Bucs offense. Mike Evans is the #1 WR there, but Humphries has the potential to be the #2 guy in that offense on any given week. He's flashed some this year and is worth a gamble if you're thin at the position this week. Also, if Evans misses time this week due to his concussion-like symptoms, Humphries becomes almost a must-start.
Marquise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars. Lee has taken on a bigger role in the Jacksonville offense lately. While he's only worth starting in deeper leagues right now, he is a player that should be squarely on your radar. At least monitor his situation.
Rishard Matthews, WR, Tennessee Titans. While Wright is looking like the #1 in Tennessee, Matthews had a really nice week 9. He's worth a grab as well if you're thin at the position.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Minnesota Vikings. I've had Patterson here before, but he had a pretty nice game week 9 in a PPR setting. He's always going to be big-play dependent, but if you need a miracle in a deep league, Patterson could be worth a roll of the dice.
Eli Rogers, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers. Rogers had a really good week in week 9. Can he build off of it? He's worth a speculative grab at least.
Kendall Wright, WR, Tennessee Titans. I'm a huge fan of Wright right now, especially in PPR leagues. He's becoming the most productive WR in the Titans offense, and can put up sneaky-good numbers especially in PPR formats. If you're thin at WR, Wright could be your answer.
Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brate is finally seeing his role increase with the Buccaneers. He's not going to singlehandedly win you a matchup, but he certainly won't lose you one either. If you're hurting at the position, give him a look this week.
Lance Kendricks, TE, LA Rams. Kendricks is seeing lots of targets for the Rams lately, and gets to face the Jets this week. The Jets have been relatively generous towards tight ends this week, making Kendricks a worthwhile streamer.
Baltimore Ravens D/ST. This week the Ravens play the Browns. Enough said.
Kansas City Chiefs D/ST. The Chiefs get to play the Panthers this week. Why is that important? Because the Panthers have given up a ton of turnovers. That means that they could provide lots of points for the Chiefs D/ST from a fantasy perspective. This could be a semi-risky start, but this is a matchup that I like.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
