Week 10 started Thursday Night when the now 3-7 Dolphins beat the 6-3 Ravens 22 to 10. The Ravens had a chance at the end of the game to come back and win, however Lamar Jackson threw an interception in the red zone, which sealed the game. The game didn’t have many stars, but Andrews (TD) and Bateman (6/80 yards) shone for the Ravens. However, it was mainly the Dolphins Defense (TD, 4 sacks, 2 turnovers) and Myers (3/3 FG) who won them the game.
This week also saw star WR Odell Beckham Jr. sign with the Los Angeles Rams, who will join the newly acquired LB Von Miller who was inactive for the Rams last week. This week is also riddled with injuries seeing Kamara (Saints), Chubb (Browns) Claypool (Steelers), Brown (Buccaneers), & Edmunds (Cardinals) already declared out. Some key players are still questionable, and could go either way including: Murray (Cardinals), Hopkins (Cardinals), Robinson (Jaguars), Harris (Patriots), & Godwin (Buccaneers). With the injury news updating constantly, keep up to date with the changing odds.
QB Tom Brady (Buccaneers) is facing the Washington Football Team, who has given up the most points to quarterbacks this year. Even without Antonio Brown and possibly missing Godwin, Brady can shine with all the weapons around him.
RB Aaron Jones (Packers) had a down game last week, however that was without Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers is expected to play and Jones benefits from that greatly. Seattle is the 3rd worst against the run in the league, and Jones is one of the better running backs by far.
WR Keenan Allen (Chargers) is questionable, and if he plays he could go above the 16 fantasy points that he has received in the previous two weeks. The Vikings are 29th in the league against WRs and 28th in the red zone. Last week it was Hollywood Brown (Ravens) who got over 100 receiving yards, this week I predict Allen.
TE Dan Arnold (Jaguars) is a value pick, but he receives plenty of targets and targets lead to better opportunities in DFS. The Jags are facing the Colts, who should win comfortably, but that means the Jaguars should be playing from behind, thus throwing the ball more to catch up. The Colts are bad at defending TEs, in fact 29th in the league and 31st in the red zone against them.
The Titans surprised us all this past week beating the Rams after losing their star RB Derrick Henry. The Saints also have a good defense, but are facing some key injuries on offense, missing their starting QB (Winston), RB (Kamara), and WR (Thomas). The oddsmakers think this game is going to be basically 50/50, however with the Titans resurgence on defense, and attitude to always find a way to win, look at the Titans to win against the beat-up Saints.
The Browns are coming off an impressive 41-16 slaughtering to the healthy and pretty good Bengals team. Their defense is looking as good as people predicted, without OBJ there are less distractions and the ball is being spread around evenly. This week the Browns are without Chubb, but will hand the ball off to more-than-compentent 3rd stringer D’Ernest Johnson.
On the other side the Patriots have been a surprise story this year under rookie QB Mac Jones. The Patriots have a solid running game, although RB Harris and backup Stevenson are both questionable. Furthermore, they will be up against a strong Cleveland run defense (who rank 10th in the league compared to the Patriots 17th).
The Patriots are not playing the Panthers, Jets (twice), or Texans this week. Therefore, the Patriots have had an easier schedule so far, and those padded defensive numbers will be more in question facing a better offense like the Browns.
