We've made it to double digits! Week 10 is here and your fantasy playoffs are right around the corner. Every result is becoming more and more important, so let's crush it this week and make sure we are starting and sitting the right guys to get you in those playoff spots!
Teams on their bye week:
New York Jets
Kansas City Chiefs
Start Of The Week
Drew Lock (DEN) @ LV
So 'Lock-tober' never really got going did it... but are we now in 'Drew-vember'? Lock is coming off a great game against the Falcons where he threw for over 300 yards for the first time this season, including 2 TDs, and also added another TD on the ground, resulting in his best fantasy performance of the year. Now he gets another great matchup against the Raiders, who just allowed rookie QB Justin Herbert to have a 300 yard and 2 TD game. With that in mind, plus Lock's ability to run with the ball when needed, you can start Lock with confidence this week.
Jared Goff (LAR) Vs SEA
Goff had a rough game in Week 8 Vs the Dolphins, but he's now coming off his bye week and playing the fantasy-friendly Seahawks defense. It's no shock that every week you want to be starting the opposing QB against Seattle, who are allowing a league-high 27.9 FPPG on average to the QB position, even if that QB is Jared Goff. Don't overthink it, find whichever QB is playing the Seahawks and fire them up.
Carson Wentz (PHI) @ NYG
It has been an up and down season for Wentz so far this season. He's been under pressure to perform in real life but from a fantasy standpoint, he's actually been a serviceable QB. Currently the QB13, coming off his bye week and he now gets to play the Giants who he had one of his best performances against in Week 7. He threw for 359 yards and 2 TDs, and also added a rushing TD, so this is a great opportunity for him to bounce back after his disappointing performance against the Cowboys before his bye week.
Sit Of The Week
Kirk Cousins (MIN) @ CHI
Cousins had a quiet game last week thanks to Dalvin Cook torching the Lions, yet he still threw 3 TDs. However, this week he's playing the Bears who are a tough defense and allowing only 15.6 FPPG on average to the QB position. This again feels like a game where the Vikings will rely on Cook and the running game with the Bears also struggling on offense this season. There are plenty of other options I would take over Cousins at QB this week.
