Fantasy Football Week 10 Sleepers and Starts

November 11, 2011 at 11:03 am Leave a comment

Wide Receivers: Looking to score more

Anquan Boldin: Could be leaned on early and often to help the Ravens avoid another let down. Good career numbers versus the Seahawks.

Antonio Brown: He has been hot as can be lately and been getting more targets than Wallace.  That should continue with Hall possibly matching up with Wallace Sunday.  Labeled him a sleeper back in May and as he showed (and I wrote) in the preseason, Brown aint messing around.

Laurent Robinson: A clear Week 10 Pickup, who is going to be asked to pickup some slack while Austin is out 2-4 weeks.  Has coverted on 73% of his targets which is encouraging, although the Cowboys have run a more conservative offense especially with the emergence of dynamic rookie running back DeMarco Murray.

Jason Hill: Scary to rely on anyone in Jacksonville’s offense not named Maurice Jones-Drew, especially in a matchup where MJD should see 30 carries or so, but Hill has had some kind of chemistry with Gabbert (when he’s able to chill and make a throw).  Beatable corners this week and probably available.

Damian Williams: Sneaky, slightly productive fantasy football player who could see more targets if Washington is out.

NOTE: I like Deion Branch and Jerome Simpson’s schedule for the Fantasy Football playoffs, so I would recommend making a play for Branch if you can and/or he would be of use.

Quarterbacks: If you must….

Matt Cassel: Bowe torched Champ last year and the offense now has Breaston & Baldwin who should beat Denver’s other corners like everyone else.

Jay Cutler: The Bears will be looking for revenge against the Lions after that second half beatdown a month ago.  Chicago has done a much better job protecting Cutler who has Bennett and Williams back in the fold.

Running Backs: Desperation Plays

Chris Ogbonnaya:  Last week was a big failure, but this week is more promising since St. Louis’ defense is a far cry from the Texans’.  Although they have improved from the epic, record setting struggles…they still are among the worst at stopping the run.

Kendall Hunter: The rookie is worth taking a shot on if you’re desperate.  Easiest way to bet the Giants is on the ground and SF could look to run the ball a ton with Gore and this fine prospect.  Also, if he’s available and you have room, I would definitely pick him up on the chance Gore gets hurt.

Jacquizz Rodgers: They finally have installed his package into the offense after getting 10 carries for 44 yards.  Could have a nice game and impact against the Saints.

Javon Ringer:  Again, if you’re desperate and perhaps an overambitious owner in your league dropped him after one week….he could see a split in a winnable matchup.

Most desperate: Ridley.

D/ST: Plug & Play

Jacksonville: They are coming off a bye week, which I always like, and they play the 0 and whatever Colts.  Free agent acquistions have been paying off and they always play the Colts well.  Not many turnovers or sacks on the season, but I can definitely see a nice day here with low downside.
