2022 Week 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers

🚨HEAD UP🚨 These are sleepers. They will not 100% mimic my rankings. This hunts upwards and often carries more risk.

QUARTERBACK

POSSIBLE START: Daniel Jones, NYG – Jones had his worst game of the season en route to the bye, but it came against a sneaky, decent defense (Seahawks). With a week off to reset and plan the Texans’ matchup, Jones should recover…well, mostly for the matchup and not so much for Jones’ passing ability. It’s Jones’ legs that really add to his fantasy value, with three games for 68+ rushing yards and his two games for 20+ points that come with a rushing touchdown (or two). Hopefully Jones doesn’t choke like he did in week 8.


RUN BACK

POSSIBLE START: Rachaad White, TB – The Buccaneers could reportedly lean more on White as the season draws to a close, and it could start against the Seahawks this week. While the Seahawks’ defense against receivers is better than expected, they are very vulnerable to pass-catching running backs as Austin Ekeler crushed them with a 12-12-96-1 line, Alvin Kamara had 6-6-91, Javonte Williams went 12-11-65-0 in Week 1 and even James Conner went 5-5-19 on his return last week.

HAIL MARY START: Isiah Pacheco, KC – As mentioned in the podcast, I want nothing to do with the Chiefs, Broncos, Rams and Bills backfields… if possible. Yes, we’re probably going to have to field someone every week, especially on Chiefs and Bills offenses, and this time we can target Pacheco’s advantage. That’s down to hoping for a touchdown and a run while holding a lead. The backfield is real committee with Jerick McKinnon passing the others, but Pacheco would likely see more runs (no pun intended) with a healthy lead the Chiefs should have over the Jaguars.


WIDE RECEIVER

POSSIBLE START: DeAndre Carter, LAC – Josh Palmer’s advice is paying off, so this week we turn to Carter. He was a good option in Week 9, but there’s still more work to be done against the 49ers, even though it might look like it on paper. The 49ers are near the top of the league in 20+ yard receptions allowed, and yes, some of those have gone to Cooper Kupp alone, but even the Panthers had four such receptions in Week 5. Carter has great playing potential with 10.4 air/TGT and 20.8% of his receptions were 20 yards, although he mostly played outside of the slot. There is a big chance that Carter will make it big and not flop.

POSSIBLE START: Wan’Dale Robinson, NYG – From Weeks 6-8, Robinson is with Darius Slayton in the team’s lead in goal percentage (17.6) and has the most receptions (11) while being just one of three players to catch a touchdown. That’s all with his down game of 3-2-15-0 before the bye (thanks, Daniel Jones). It’s the previous two games that we hope he emulates given the favorable matchup (Texans) as long as the Giants don’t get out too big too soon and the clock runs out.

HAIL MARY START: Donovan Peoples-Jones, CLE β€” Oddly enough, Amari Cooper dominates at home and struggles a bit on the street where DPJ has emerged. The Browns have had three-five away games at home, and yet Peoples-Jones has 20-13-215 away and 26-17-202 at home. The Browns also travel to Miami, where we can hope for a shootout and Jacoby Brissett’s second 40-pass game this year.


CLOSE END

HAIL MARY START: Cade Otton, TB – Even if Cameron Brate returns, I’m willing to bet on Otton, who’s been 3rd on the team in TmTGT% since week 4 (Brate played in weeks 4 and 6). Otton is also second in Red Zone and End Zone targets during this stretch, spinning in a line of 30-22-242-1. What really helps is the matchup with the Seahawks. No opponent has scored at least 5.2 points at the tight end — TJ Hockenson destroyed them in Week 4, Zach Ertz had a nice 5-40-1 last week and even Tanner Hudson for the Giants did it 3-58-0.


Fun with rankings!
Best Soccer Party Food

It’s food again this week, and I’ve got a big appetite to fight this flu…or whatever it is. I’ve always gone the hungry route when I’m sick β€” some people don’t want to eat β€” so I thought, “Why not rank the top 10 football party dishes?” It’s the middle of NFL season, after all, so let’s dig in … to the tiers … and some great dishes. I would also like to hear your suggestions. I always love trying new foods/snacks.

  1. Pizza β€” Why throw a football party at all if you don’t have pizza? I even take several variations of pizza – appetizers, rolls, bread, etc. – in addition to regular pizza.
  2. Buffalo chicken dip β€” I can only guess that the streets of heaven taste like this. I have to portion it out onto my plate or I’d gobble the whole bowl.
  3. wing β€” Would be ranked higher were it not for the endless need for napkins/towels. Louisiana flavor is my go-to (wingstop or my own).
  4. slider β€” It’s really in its own category, but whether it’s burgers, BBQ, chicken, etc., these are a must-try, especially for the ease of eating them compared to a full-size burger.
  5. Soft pretzel – I may be crazy, but I love soft pretzels – whether it’s a giant pretzel “block” that everyone shares, bites, or wholesome pretzels – and there are so many variations, from salt to cinnamon sugar to all and more.
  6. Buffalo Chicken Bun β€” They’re a bit like spring rolls (size and presentation), but only filled with buffalo chicken. Easy to make, eat and love.
  7. crisps – Utz thinks!
  8. pigs in a blanket β€” Did you know that the plural is pigs in blankets? Sweet is not it?
  9. Macaroni and Cheese β€” Simple site, super tasty, and you can add different spins.
  10. Taco/layered dip/nachos – You could argue that this should be ranked higher and I won’t disagree much but the Buffalo Chicken Dip is way better and I hate beans especially the chilled glop in dip. If you omit beans, I’ll dip!

BONUS: Monkey Bread β€” If you’ve never had it (maybe you didn’t know it was called that), do yourself a favor and make something next time. As with chicken wings, there’s a lot of manual cleaning to do afterwards, but that’s what clouds in the sky taste like. Imagine the center of a cinnabon – that’s what you get with every bite!


BUYS AND SOLD

Buys

  • Justin Herbert, QB, LAC – I’m far from apologizing to Herbert but he hasn’t had all the guns this year and if Keenan Allen and/or Mike Williams can return then the Chargers have a middle ground plan as Herbert has a lot of room to grow.
  • Michael Carter, RB, NYJ β€” Yes, split the backfield, but a favorable schedule and managers might consider β€œselling high” after a good game.
  • Gus Edwards, RB, BAL – Ravens goodbye, Edwards is the lead if healthy and should return in week 11.
  • Courtland Sutton, WR, DEN – Was here last week because Jerry Jeudy had a bad stretch earlier this year and now Sutton is in the middle of his. I’m not expecting a top 20 ROS for Sutton, but the managers are dropping him straight out.
  • Diontae Johnson, WR, PIT – Also here last week when Chase Claypool narrowed the passing tree for Kenny Pickett and the volume was already high on Johnson.
  • Michael Pittman, WR, IND – Quarterback Sam Ehlinger is a concern, but Pittman is still on the WR3 talk, along with the likes of other boom/bust options like Gabriel Davis.
  • Pat Freiermuth, TE, PIT – As with Johnson, Freiermuth will benefit from Claypool dropping out of the equation.

Sold

  • Justin Fields, QB, CHI β€” We talked about Fields ROS the athlete fantasy football Pod, and he’s pushing close to the top 5 on the QB, but some have already put him there. I would still pick Tua Tagovailoa so if others in your league think he’s better than Joe Burrow/Kyler Murray/etc. hold, you’ll get a peak – even if Fields continues that…run.
  • Joe Mixon, RB, CIN – Not only because of all those touchdowns in Week 9, but the Bengals have one of the worst running back schedules in the fantasy playoffs.
  • Josh Jacobs, RB, LV – Jacobs might be tough to sell right now, but one could argue that if the Week 14-17 schedule doesn’t actually look good and the Raiders could start looking towards 2023, it’s just a rough patch for the Raiders .
  • Tyler Boyd, WR, CIN β€” Seems obvious, but there are plenty of inexperienced leagues with managers who could bite Ja’Marr Chase out.
  • Darnell Mooney, WR, CHI β€” Fields took a few shots with Claypool in his first game with the Bears. Mooney was fine as the volume king in the Bears’ passing game, and Mooney’s loss of just five percentage points in TmTGT% would hurt his value badly.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Projections

🚨 HEADS UP 🚨 These may differ from my rankings and mine Ranks are the order I would start players in outside of the additional context, such as B. “Need the highest potential, even if it is risky.” Also based on 4-point TDs for QB, 6-point break and half PPR
