WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 10

TE Noah Fant DEN

With the help of a catch-and-long run for a score this week against Cleveland, Fant eclipsed the 100-yard platform for the first time this season. There are more good things to come for the young Denver tight end.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 10

LB Patrick Onwuasor BAL

Onwuasor was arguably Baltimore’s defensive MVP in a fantastic effort against previously undefeated New England, piling up eight total tackles, a sack and a forced fumble that was returned for a touchdown by cornerback Marlon Humphrey... after his Week 9 explosion, Onwuasor’s absolutely worth an add.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 10

QB Ryan Tannehill TEN

Fans in Nashville are flying high since Tannehill replaced the horrific Marcus Mariota at quarterback three weeks ago. The former Miami starter has been lighting up the scoreboard since taking over, throwing for six touchdowns and rushing for another, all the while not scoring less that 20 fantasy points a game.

ON SECOND THOUGHTS: Week 10

RB Ronald Jones TBB

The biggest buzz of the week goes to Ronald Jones of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jones is available in 62% of leagues and finally had that breakout game we have all been waiting for. Head coach Bruce Arians announced on Monday that Jones will officially be the team’s starting RB.

GRAB BAG: Week 10

QB Nick Foles JAC

With the Broncos, Eagles, Jaguars, Patriots, Redskins and Texans all on bye this week, it's very likely that multiple teams in your league - possibly you included - are going to have considerable issues with filling a starting lineup. Luckily, there are still plenty of options for a one-week fill in for those of you with roster problems.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 10

RB Devin Singletary Bills

For this first time this season, Devin Singletary out-touched Frank Gore in a contest... The Bills would be idiots not to give one of their most explosive playmakers a sizable fantasy friendly role going forward.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 9 Injury Fallout

QB Jacoby Brissett IND

We’ll have to wait for more information before we’ll know if Jacoby Brissett’s injury will sideline him for future games, but his inability to return against the Steelers suggests that his availability for Week 10 is in question. If Brissett is unable to play, then 11th-year veteran Brian Hoyer will get the start against the Dolphins.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 9

RB Josh Jacobs OAK

I don't know about you, but it seems to me that people are not giving rookie Josh Jacobs the credit he deserves. Fantasy owners probably tend to overlook Jacobs because he's not much of a receiving threat out of the backfield, but he's a good-looking runner.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 9

Taylon Smith DAL tackles Saquon Barkley NYG

This is what folks aren't understanding about Dallas: they're not that good. They're a team that doesn't play well together but as individuals they excel. It's why they make such great fantasy players, they're all about individual stats and it's also why they lose, because they don't play as a team.

SPREADING CHEDDAR: The One Stop Gambling Shop – Week 9

Helmet_Carolina_Panthers_1

The Panthers received a monstrous wake up call in San Francisco last week as they got run over by Tevin Coleman. The good news is that the Panthers have a knack for bouncing back after big losses, especially when they travel back home. The Panthers have covered the spread in 13 of their last 14 home games following a road loss.

DFS STACK ATTACK: Week 9

QB_Jameis_Winston_TBB_1

Jameis Winston is undoubtedly a turnover machine, but that doesn’t affect his fantasy scoring. Believe it or not, turnovers are actually a POSITIVE for Winston’s fantasy value. By turning the ball over, it allows Seattle more chances to score which ultimately leads to Tampa having to try and keep up even more.

RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT: Week 9

RISERS & FALLERS: Week 9

RB David Johnson tackled by DB Tracy Walker DET

After Thursday Night Football, it’s very evident that we will not be seeing the David Johnson that he were hoping for at any point this season. Over the last three weeks, Chase Edmonds and Kenyan Drake have both been better running backs than David Johnson has been at any point over the last two seasons.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 9

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

Matthew Stafford has been on fire as of late. He has thrown for over 340 yards and has at least three touchdown passes in his last two games. With Kerryon Johnson going down and without a reliable running game, the Lions are going to have to throw the ball even more.

FLEX APPEAL: Week 9

WR DeVante Parker MIA

Coach Flores has stated outright that the Dolphins are not tanking, and that shows on the field. Call me crazy, but the Dolphins can win against the Jets in Week 9. If they do, look for DeVante Parker to be a huge benefactor in that.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 9 IDP Start/Sit

LB A.J. Johnson & FS Kareem Jackson Denver

Thanks largely to the running of bruising tailback Nick Chubb, the Cleveland Browns have consistently been a top-five fantasy matchup for the linebacker position this year. Add in the fact that Todd Davis is banged up again, and A.J. Johnson could easily be set to see a boatload of tackle opportunities Sunday at Mile High.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 9

WR D.J. Moore CAR

Moore has been a good bet for 10-12 fantasy points a week, but is lacking those explosive games that he’s capable of having from time to time. It’s tough when you have to share touches with Christian McCaffrey, but Moore is due for a blow-up game and it comes in Week 9.

REAR-VIEW: Week 9

WR_Mike_Evans_TBB_1

It was a wild week last week with massive scoring for several players. Daniel Jones led the quarterbacks in scoring, Aaron Jones had more points than any player, and Mike Evans is officially back.

DFS GEMS: Week 9

QB_Russell_Wilson_SEA_1

He certainly is the most expensive quarterback on the slate this week but all indications imply he should be well worth the extra coin spent! Wilson is Top 10 in completion percentage and Top 15 in pass attempts on the year - that’s a solid combo knowing the ceiling you get with Wilson.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 9

RB Dalvin Cook MIN

Can Dalvin Cook and the Vikings feast on the Chiefs and deal them another home defeat? How will Lamar Jackson fare against the stout Patriots defense? David Grey will examine the match-ups in thi week’s Grey Report, Because Not All ...

START/BENCH: Week 9

RB Frank Gore BUF

Frank Gore has already racked up one 100-yard rushing game this season — he tallied 109 yards on just 17 carries in a Week 4 loss to New England. That effort came against one of the best run defenses in the NFL. Washington sports one of the league’s worst.

RED ZONE: Target Analysis – Week 8

RB Tevin Coleman SF

Tevin Coleman broke out in a big way on Sunday. He had five red zone opportunities (converted three for touchdowns) and had four total scores on the day... The San Francisco running game has been on fire this year and doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 9

TE Jonnu Smith TEN

We had Jonnu Smith listed in our deepest category last week, hoping that he might be able to stir up some magic in place of the injured Delanie Walker. He certainly did that and more, catching six passes while going for 78 yards and a touchdown against Tampa Bay.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 9

DE Jason Pierre-Paul TB

Jason Pierre-Paul played 43 snaps in his first game action of the season, finishing with three tackles and a sack. There’s been nothing to indicate Pierre-Paul suffered a setback in the game, so his snap count will likely increase in relatively short order.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 9

WR Odell Beckham CLE

A lot of people are going to be fed up with the Browns and are ready to move on from Cleveland. While they are by no means going to the Super Bowl, they still have talent that MUST be rostered and arguably started every week, and Odell Beckham is one of them.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 9

LB Mychal Kendricks PHI

Despite their secondary woes, the Eagles are prime streaming material. They return home after a gritty road win to face Chicago. Philadelphia stops the run extremely well, and they should have no issues doing the same which will leave it to Mitch Trubisky to make plays -- which is always a recipe for disaster.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 9

RB Mark Walton MIA

Mark Walton is available in 88% of leagues and in Week 7, Walton led the team with 14 carries, and now he should see even more. Walton faces the Jets in Week 9 which gives him a great chance for a breakout day.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 9

Pumpkin_Head_Cleveland_Fan_1

Halloween is here and that means it is time for ghouls and ghosts and other costumes to take to the streets and haunt the early evening on Oct. 31. It is a trick and treat kind of week so I am going to mention all items coming into Week 9 that are treats. In this era of all things offense, there are plenty of treats to hand out.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 9

RB Latavius Murray NO

For the past two weeks, Latavius Murray has taken advantage of the ankle injury that has befallen teammate Alvin Kamara, and largely because of Murray’s efforts, New Orleans just continues to roll from one victory to the next.

STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE: Good/Bad Matchups – Week 9

QB Jimmy Garoppolo SF

The biggest reason to like Garoppolo as a streamer this week is his matchup, as Arizona is the fourth best matchup for opposing quarterbacks. He also showed good rapport with Emmanuel Sanders right out of the gate, so that’s also a huge plus as the season progresses. If you’re struggling, put your faith in Garoppolo for Week 9.

GRAB BAG: Week 9

RB Raheem Mostert SF

Mostert had his highest number of carries since Week 3. If Breida or Wilson miss more time, Mostert is the main beneficiary of those vacant touches and with a Thursday night game against Arizona, a two-headed running game between Coleman and Mostert could emerge.

FLAVOR OF THE WEEK: Derrius Guice, RB, Washington

RB Derrius Guice WAS

The Redskins travel to Buffalo this week before going on bye and all reports indicate Guice intends to return after the bye week and the Redskins only have incentive to deploy him to his full extent. Week 11 will present the perfect opportunity to give Guice the keys and evaluate him for next year’s purposes.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 9 Edition

RB David Montgomery CHI

The David Montgomery bandwagon is rolling after his surprising and long overdue breakout performance this past Sunday, but FantasySharks.com senior writer Matt Wilson isn’t ready to jump aboard just yet. Matt tells us why and gives us his take on ...
