One of the most crucial parts to playing fantasy football is playing the match-up. Some players, of course, are match-up proof—You are not going to sit Aaron Rodgers or Adrian Peterson. Here are your weekly fantasy football starts and sits for week ten to help you win this week’s match-up.
Bye Week- Atlanta Falcons, Indianapolis Colts, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers.
Blake Bortles – Bortles has been having a great season. He is currently ranked ninth at quarterback and is facing Baltimore in week 10. Baltimore is giving up the second most points to quarterback this season.
Kirk cousins – Cousins has been up and down this season but in week he has a very favorable match-up with the Saints who are giving up the most points to quarterbacks this season. In a game that should be a shoot-out, there should be plenty of points to go around.
Doug Martin – Martin is coming off a down week where he tallied 43 yards and also lost a fumble. He should bounce back in week 10 vs Dallas who is giving up the second most points to running backs this season.
Giovani Bernard – Bernard has been the most consistent running back in Cincinnati this season; and with Hill struggling you can expect Bernard’s touches to rise. He has a good match-up in week 10 on Monday night vs Houston who is giving up the seventh most points to running backs this season.
Allen Hurns – Hurns has been one of the most consistent wide receivers this season. He has posted sixty yards or a touchdown in every game thus far. This week he has a great match-up against the Ravens who are giving up the most points to wide receivers this season.
Eric Decker – Decker is one of the most underrated wide receivers in the league. He has a touchdown in every game he has played this season, and is averaging 10 fantasy points per game. He has a very favorable match-up this week vs the Bills.
Jordan Reed – Reed is one of the most athletic tight ends in the game. This week he has a very favorable match-up with the Saints who are giving up the most points to tight ends this season.
Gary Barnidge- Barnidge is coming off a down week but should bounce back this week vs their divisional rival Steelers. The Steelers are giving up the fourth most points to tight ends this season.
Carson Palmer – Palmer has been great this season and is currently ranked seventh at quarterback. He has a very tough match-up in week 10 against Seattle. Seattle is giving up the third fewest points to quarterbacks this season.
Jay Cutler – Cutler has been solid in recent weeks averaging 18 points per game. But that might end as he has a tough game ahead vs the Vikings who are giving up the second fewest points to quarterbacks this season.
Eddie Lacy – Lacy has not been the running back who many drafted him to be. He is currently ranked 43rd and is averaging five points per game. He has a favorable match-up in week 10 vs Detroit. Until he can prove that he can produce for your team, he should be on your bench.
Isaiah Crowell – Crowell has been a decent flex play this season but the Browns backfield is a true ‘running back by committee’. This week he is going up against the division rival Steelers who are giving up the third fewest points to running backs this season.
Larry Fitzgerald – Fitzgerald has shown why he should still be considered one of the elite wide receivers in the league. He is averaging 12 points per game this season, but in week 10 he is facing Seattle who is giving up the fewest points to wide receivers.
Jeremy Maclin – Maclin has been a solid flex option this season averaging eight points per game. In week 10 he is going up against the Broncos who have the beat defense in the league this season. Maclin will probably be covered by shutdown corner Aqib Talib.
Delanie Walker – Walker has one of the best games of his career in week nine with 95 yards and two touchdowns. In week 10 he has a tough match-up against Carolina who has one of the best defenses in the league.
Charles Clay – Clay has been a solid tight end this season, but has had two bad games in a row. It doesn’t get any better for Clay in week 10 against the Jets who have been tough on tight ends this season.
