Which under the radar players will prove toÂ beÂ helpful this week? Let’s take a look at this week’s Raider Ramble edition of Fantasy Football Sleepers Week 10.
Fantasy Football Sleepers: Raider Ramble Week 10 Edition
Week 9 Recap
To keep this and my suffering short, four of my picks (Deon Jackson, Devin Duvernay, Robert Tonyan, and the Vikings DST) were duds. Luckily, Justin Fields shined as QB1 with a 42.72-point performance, so it wasn’t all bad. Onto the next wave of picks.
*Disclaimer, all stats are gathered from NFL and NFL Fantasy websites.
QB Jared Goff @ CHI
In the Lions’ last four games, Jared Goff has only scored 18 or more fantasy points once. His value has only gone down in that span, which will make him easy to grab this week. Overall, on the season, the Bears have only given up an average of 15.70 points per game to quarterbacks (the 15th-lowest average). However, in the last two weeks, they have allowed an average of 24.74 points (the fourth most). It looks like the dealings of Robert Quinn and Roquan Smith have had an effect on the defense’s faltering a bit. With starting quarterbacks such as Josh Allen, Kyler Murray, and Matthew Stafford all questionable to play this week, fantasy managers may need someone like Goff to come to the rescue.
RB Jeff Wilson vs CLE
Jeff Wilson was quite impressive in his Dolphins debut last week. He split carries with Raheem Mostert 50/50 and had a much bigger impact, scoring nearly twice as many fantasy points as the other. Wilson also has the privilege of scoring against the fourth-worst run defense, which has allowed 13 rushing touchdowns. There is a decent chance that Wilson will get more carries than Mostert this week.
WR George Pickens vs NO
In the last Steelers game, George Pickens was held to zero receptions against the Eagles. Luckily for Pickens, the Saints’ defense isn’t on the same level as the Eagles’, so he’ll have a good shot at positive production. Since Chase Claypool was traded to the Bears, Pickens will certainly get more targets. The Steelers’ defense is also expecting to get T.J. Watt back from injury and help the offense get more drives.
TE Greg Dulcich @ TEN
Greg Dulcich has only played three games so far this season and has scored double digits in each game. It’s clear that Russell Wilson is comfortable throwing to him, and there’s no reason to stop that this week. The Titans allowed the third-most points to tight ends this season. Dulcich has had the sixth-highest points per game in the last four weeks (including his bye week last week).
DST Arizona Cardinals @ LAR
The Cardinals’ DST is currently not getting enough attention. They are tied for seventh place among DSTs, but only 45.3 percent of them are rostered. They are also projected to be the third-worst DST this week. The Rams are also the second-worst team against defenses and may not even have Matthew Stafford play. The defense has scored five touchdowns this season and will have a chance to add to that total this week.
