2018 Fantasy Football Week 10 Start-Sit

on

Looks like the Browns finally figured out how to use Duke Johnson Jr., but they still have not figured out how to win. The undefeated Rams were finally defeated by an equally high-powered Saints‘ team. Oh, and Julio scored his first touchdown of the year. These are just a few of the story lines from Week 9 and owners should keep an eye on some of the injuries.

With that being said, checkout this article for all your start and sit questions.

Starts

Alex Smith, QB, Washington Redskins vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Eww, Alex Smith as a Fantasy starter in 2018? Smith has not scored more than 16 points in seven straight games. Well, match-ups can make a huge difference to someone’s Fantasy production. If you are a quarterback needy team or your quarterback is on bye, Smith is an okay start against a defense that allows the most Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks.

Ito Smith, RB, Atlanta Falcons vs Cleveland Browns

Now with double digit touches in two of the last three games since Freeman has been out, Ito his expanding a role in this Falcons running back committee. He has heavy red zone usage and has scored a touchdown in four of the last five games. Now with a match-up against the Browns who allow the third most Fantasy points to opposing running backs, Smith is a decent flex play this week.

Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati Bengals vs New Orleans Saints

Arguably the biggest beneficiary of AJ Green’s toe injury, Boyd was already a top-15 receiver with Green on the field. Owners thinking this might change with defenses being able to focus on Boyd and worried about less favorable coverage for Boyd should not panic. Any dip in Boyd’s efficiency will certainly be made up for by increased volume. Boyd is a strong start every week.

Ben Watson, TE, New Orleans Saints vs Cincinnati Bengals

A touchdown in two of the past three games, Watson is a boom or bust tight end. Owners can hope for the boom side in a match-up against the Bengals who allow nearly 12 Fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Watson can be streamed this week.

Sits

Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams vs Seattle Seahawks

Goff has been on fire this year and is a top-5 Fantasy quarterback. He has had a few bad Fantasy games, one of them notably being against the Seahawks. This is his opponent for this week and he was only able to muster up 13 Fantasy points in his first game against the Seahawks this year. The Seahawks allow the fewest Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and they like to run the clock out. Goff owners might consider looking elsewhere this week.

Kerryon Johnson, RB, Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears

Johnson has not ran the ball well in the last two weeks. He was also ineffective in the receiving game in Week 8 with Theo Riddick making his return. Johnson’s value depends on his efficiency in the run game, as Blount steals goal line work and Theo steals passing work. Now against a Bears defense that allows the fewest Fantasy points to opposing running backs, Johnson owners can look elsewhere.

Golden Tate, WR, Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys

In his first game since being traded to the Eagles, owners may be wondering about Tate’s roll in the offense. First of all, Tate went from being the number 1 guy in Detroit to being the third option, at best, in Philadelphia. Owners should wait to see how Tate is used on his new team, especially because he plays against the Cowboys who allow the second fewest Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

Austin Hooper, TE, Atlanta Falcons vs Cleveland Browns

Hooper has cooled off since his back-to-back 70-yard games in Weeks 5 and 6. Hooper’s production has a correlation with the absence of Sanu and Ridley. With both of those players back and healthy, and the emergence of the running backs in the passing game, Hooper can be placed on benches this week.
