Fantasy football sit, start, and sleepers: Divisional Advice for Week 10
SIT: Wide Receiver, Devin Funchess – Carolina Panthers
A lot is going to be made after Funchess had one of the better overall games of his season with Kelvin Benjamin gone. However, the tall receiver has just two games with scoring plays this year, and his team’s red-zone strategy just doesn’t fit his skill set. Look for guys who are a part of their team’s scoring plan.
START: Tight End, Cameron Brate – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Speaking of guys looked at for their team to score. Brate is a huge third down and red zone target for the Buccaneers, which should translate to at least one score if quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is able to move the ball against his former squad.
SLEEPER: Kicker, Patrick Murray – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Issues in Tampa go beyond talent, and this is an offense known for getting close and not punching it in. Hopefully, Sean Payton didn’t wreck Murray’s confidence last week, and the kicker should get some solid opportunities to put points on the board this weekend.
Must Read: Game Changers for Week 10
SIT: Houston Texans Defense
The Texans’ offense isn’t as dynamic without Deshaun Watson, which means more time on the field for their defense. Going against the Rams and they’re suddenly successful offense spells doom.
START: Jacksonville Jaguars Defense
The Chargers have scored the fourth fewest points in the AFC to date, and the Jaguars have surrendered the fewest points in the same conference. Plus, Philip Rivers is good for at least one interception in this one.
SLEEPER: Quarterback, Blake Bortles – Jacksonville Jaguars
Disclaimer: I’m starting Bortles in my “league of record” because of the collapse of Jameis Winston’s fantasy football presence.
That being said, Bortles has looked so good in the last couple of match-ups you almost don’t want to talk about it because it might go away. Now that I’ve written this, I’m pretty sure he’s going to throw four interceptions. Isn’t this fun!?
