Week 10 Fantasy Football Value Players

Looking to find some great value players to start in fantasy football this week? Check out these fantasy football Week 10 value players.

It is hard to believe that it is halfway through the NFL season already. This means the fantasy football playoffs are just around the corner! So where can value be found amongst some of the lesser sought-after fantasy football players? Here is a rundown of the key players in the top four skill positions that will play above their value in fantasy football in Week 10.

Fantasy Football Week 10 Value Players

Quarterback: Carson Wentz, Indianapolis Colts

When the Indianapolis Colts brought in Carson Wentz this off-season, there was an extraordinary amount of skepticism surrounding the move. After battling a few concerning injuries and losing three straight games to start off the season, Wentz has seemingly overcome a lot of this adversity, at least from a fantasy perspective. 

Currently sitting as the QB10 on the year, Wentz has quietly averaged just over 18 points per game this season. Over the past six games, Wentz has thrown at least two touchdowns per contest (he has thrown for three in each of his last two games). What is almost more impressive than his seventeen total passing touchdowns on the season is that he has thrown just three interceptions, with two of those coming in Indianapolis’s Week 8 heartbreaker against the Tennessee Titans.

Following their rocky start, the Colts have started to find their rhythm offensively. Wentz had his best fantasy outing of the season last Thursday night against the woeful New York Jets, and has another outstanding matchup on the docket this week versus the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars. While some may be a little hesitant to throw Wentz into their lineups after the beating Jacksonville put on Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills last week, expect the new-found consistency of Wentz (hitting at least 17 points per game in his last six) to overshadow that outlier performance by the Jaguars defense. Wentz should be locked in as a mid-to-low-end QB1 this week.      

Other value quarterbacks for Week 10: Derek Carr, Matt Ryan, and Mike White

Running Back: Mark Ingram, New Orleans Saints

What an interesting journey Mark Ingram has been on so far in his career. After spending the majority of his career with the New Orleans Saints, he spent a few seasons in Baltimore and Houston before reuniting with Alvin Kamara in the Saints backfield a few short weeks ago. 

Ingram may not be the same caliber back he was in his initial stint with the Saints, but his presence on a lackluster New Orleans offensive attack is already being felt. Averaging a mere 7.5 fantasy points per game (half PPR) as Kamara’s change-of-pace back, he surprisingly got his feet wet fairly quickly just last week. Not only did he rack up 64 total yards on a limited 28.6% snap share, but he also hauled in five catches as well. These numbers may seem miniscule, but he is acclimating very quickly to being a trusted player in this organization once again. The biggest takeaway for this highly anticipated matchup with the AFC-leading Tennessee Titans? Kamara is banged up as well and has been ruled out this week. With Kamara not playing this week, Ingram is a locked-in RB2 with RB1 upside.

Other value running backs for Week 10: J.D. McKissic, AJ Dillon, and Eno Benjamin

Wide Receiver: Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos

Regardless of his production thus far this year, Jerry Jeudy is an electric playmaker for the Denver Broncos offense. Jeudy exited the season opener with a high-ankle sprain and made his long-awaited return in Week 8. Through the three partial games Jeudy has been a part of, he has 16 catches on 19 targets in an offense that is middle-of-the-pack in passing attempts throughout the season.  

In addition, fellow receiver Courtland Sutton was averaging about 13.8 fantasy points per game (half PPR) in Jeudy’s absence in Weeks 2-7. Since Jeudy’s return to the lineup though, Sutton has accumulated a total of 8.4 points in Weeks 8 and 9 combined. He also only has three catches on six targets in those two games while in the same stretch Jeudy has 10 catches on twelve targets. Denver is looking for ways to get the ball in Jeudy’s hands. Although the Philadelphia Eagles are a tough matchup against receivers on paper, Denver likes to find ways to get their second-year wideout into space. Look for Jeudy’s value to continue to rise this week as he setttles in as a fantasy WR2 and the lead playmaker in the Denver offense.  

Other value wide receivers for Week 10: Emmanuel Sanders, Jamison Crowder, and Hunter Renfrow

Tight End: Dan Arnold, Jacksonville Jaguars

When the Jacksonville Jaguars traded for Dan Arnold early in the 2021 season, not many people realized the impact he would have on Jacksonville’s passing game. In three of his last four games, Arnold has had at least seven targets and 60 receiving yards. He has yet to find the end zone this year but has been about as consistent as they come at the tight end position as he emerges as one of Trevor Lawrence’s favorite pass-catching options.

As the Jaguars continue to lean towards a pass-heavy game script, expect Arnold to continue to clear a path this week against a Colts defense that ranks in the top third in fantasy points allowed to the tight end position. With this many opportunities in an offense that expects to be down in this week’s matchup, Arnold is a great value option and one that comes with a high upside if he can get in the end zone as well.
