Injuries are aplenty, and we have Washington, Denver, Houston, Jacksonville, New England, and Philadelphia on bye (that’s a lot of firepower). With that we have some tough flex decisions for Week 10! The key is making sure you make those right flex decisions. For those who are new here, every week I will help you by looking at the Expert Consensus Rankins (ECR) to make these decisions a little easier on the Sharks. Let’s go ahead and look at some RB3, RB4, WR4 and WR5 types that you can flex during Week 10. Let’s get “flexy,” shall we?
Latavius Murray, New Orleans (vs. Atlanta)
As of this writing, Alvin Kamara has yet to get in a full practice but is expected to suit up for Week 10. Murray has proven to the team that he deserves more touches, as he had 307 total yards and 4 touchdowns over the past two weeks. Even in Week 6 when Kamara was limited, Murray had 11 touches, which he turned into 79 yards. The Saints will look to keep their star running back in Kamara fresh and healthy, which will open up more touches for Murray. The Saints are also heavy favorites this week, so look for Murray to still succeed despite the fact that Kamara should return.
Damien Williams, Kansas City (at Tennessee)
I called out Williams last week, and it worked. He was the clear leader of the backfield with 14 total touches for 128 yards and a touchdown. Patrick Mahomes looks on track to suit up, which only further boosts Williams’ optimistic outlook (especially in the passing game). Tennessee’s defense hasn’t been as stingy of late, so there is no need to be scared of this matchup. Keep your faith in Williams for Week 10.
Jamaal Williams, Green Bay (vs. Carolina)
I continue to write about Williams in this article, but the experts still don’t seem to believe in him. He is in a near-even split in Green Bay’s backfield with Aaron Jones, but the man never gets any love. He has a whopping five touchdowns in his past four games which includes four through the air. The Packers are more successful when they feature their two stud running backs, so look for the running back duo to be even more involved this week. Carolina is a top-5 matchup for opposing running backs and Williams will produce yet again in Week 10.
Matt Breida, San Francisco (vs. Seattle)
Breida vastly out-produced Tevin Coleman in Week 9, as he had 17 total touches for 92 yards. I still like Coleman more, but Breida should not be ignored. He is averaging 4.4 yards per carry on the year, and the 49ers could get their star fullback back this week. Seattle’s defense is not the daunting matchup that it once was, and the 49ers will try their best to keep the ball out of Russell Wilson’s hands. Breida is a great flex play for Week 10.
