Here are the recommended grabs for Week 10:
Marcus Mariota, TEN
Mariota was electric against the hapless Saints, and although his numbers won’t be this gaudy going forward, new coach Mike Mularkey stripped down the offense and allowed Mariota to play to his strengths. He’ll be a QB2 going forward.
Pierre Thomas, RB, SFO
Shaun Draughn dominated touches today, which makes Thomas a more attractive option because Draughn was awful. Until Carlos Hyde comes back Thomas will lead the committee going forward, and he will likely keep a passing back role even after Hyde returns.
Charles Sims, TBB
Sims is still out-touched by Martin, but the time share is getting closer. Sims was the far more productive back Sunday and is worthy of flex consideration during bye weeks.
Marcel Reece, OAK
This is a flyer in case Murray doesn’t get healthy in time for next week. If he doesn’t then Reece leads the Raiders committee and is likely to score as their lead back. He is a flex play if Murray doesn’t go.
Dorial Green-Beckham, TEN
DGB was clearly part of the game plan this week and his role should grow week by week. He is physically dominant and had been coddled too much by Whisenhunt. He needs to be on the field and now he will. He is a flex play with WR3 upside.
Cole Beasley, DAL
You likely missed his best effort of the year, but he is a significant part of the Cowboys offense and he is ahead of Terrance Williams for targets now. Beasley is worthy of flex consideration but is high-risk, high-reward.
Davante Adams, GBP
After two weeks of James Jones being shut down, Adams re-emerged healthy and drew 11 targets against Carolina and hauled in 7. He will be inconsistent, but he has the chance to be a WR2 down the stretch if he gets the looks.
ASJ is coming back for week 10 and will immediately make a fantasy impact. He is a high end TE2 with TE1 upside and he can help teams down the stretch. He has been dropped in many leagues because he has been hurt for so long.
