2019 Fantasy Football Week 10 Stock Up Stock Down

on

Week 9 somehow felt the first truly great week of the season.

In the ultimate role reversal, Miami won and the Patriots lost.

Deshaun Watson seems to travel better than Gardner Minshew, as the Jags got smoked in London.

Kenyan Drake shamed the 49ers defense after less than a week to learn a new offense.

Brandon Allen (who?) led the Broncos to a victory over the Browns that was so bad, Jermaine Whitehead threw a tantrum for the ages.

The Packers looked absolutely terrible for three quarters in a surprising loss to the Chargers.

Damien Williams RB Kansas City Chiefs

McCoy’s fumble against the Broncos seems to have been a turning point in the offense. While it’s a small sample, since that point Damien Williams has played just over 75% of snaps.

Anybody with a chance to get most of the backfield touches in this offense should absolutely be able to tear up opposing defenses.

And with the Titans, Chargers, and Raiders over the next three weeks, Williams could be in for a big month.

Adrian Peterson RB Washington Redskins

Nobody is expecting him to blow us away in any given week. But the ageless wonder seems to have been given the reins of the offense since Jay Gruden was fired.

The Redskins are still bad and there is no way around that. But with the new coaching change, Peterson is averaging nearly 96 yards per game.

His upside is capped by his teams offensive woes, but his floor seems to have been set in the RB3 range.

  • Mohamed Sanu WR New England Patriots– I’ve seen every Patriots game this season and can say definitively, the Patriots have no run game and need to pass to win. However it’s hard to envision too many negative game scripts in their future. But after just two weeks Sanu seems to have a significant role in this offense.
  • Mike Gesicki TE Miami DolphinsTight end is once again a wasteland outside of the top 8 options. Gesicki has a truly impressive athletic ability that really hasn’t been properly used until this Sunday when he blew up for a stat line of 6-95-0. I’m not saying that he’s the next Gronk, but if, and it’s a big if, but if he’s properly utilized this likely won’t be a one time fluke. With Preston Williams out there is volume to be had by somebody.
  • D.K. Metcalf WR Seattle Seahawks– Metcalf was labeled a bust by many, as he has proven to be touchdown dependent before. But the rookie seems to have found his flow against Tampa. With the added benefit of having Tyler Lockett soak up top coverage Metcalf should remain a big part of the offense. Josh Gordon may pose an issue for Metcalf’s volume, but it will take time for Gordon to adjust to the new offense.

Nick Chubb RB Cleveland Browns

There really isn’t anything bad you can say about Nick Chubb. He’s extremely talented, has only 3 career fumbles, and has made the most of his touches even in the Hue Jackson days.

The issue is how poorly his team is performing, and now He’ll have Kareem hunt to contend with. Dontrell Hilliard has been soaking up touches all year and I for the life of me can’t figure out why. But with a major improvement in competition, there is cause for concern about his workload going forward.

We might be one big game for Kareem Hunt away from seeing Chubb lose a significant amount of touches. I guess the real issue is all of the question marks that need to be answered. But at this point, his trade value and expectations are as low as they’ve been all season.

Mitch Trubisky QB Chicago Bears

Trubisky isn’t playing well at all. And whether it is poor playing in general or a stale offense that the league got used to, it’s undeniable that he’s not suited for the job.

But to focus on just the fantasy aspect of his game, his 10 point per game average is 37th among QBs with at least two starts . QB4 numbers shouldn’t be tolerated in just about any format.

Without drastic change, it’s hard to imagine Trubisky being the unquestioned starter for this team for very much longer.

  • Mark Walton RB Miami Dolphins– If you haven’t heard, the NFL decided to wait until after the Dolphins traded away Kenyan Drake to suspend Mark Walton for a string of arrests from January to March. He’ll be back in December and it looks like Kalen Ballage will get the starts for now.
  • Eric Ebron TE Indianapolis Colts– Ebron has seen the field less than Doyle every game this season. And Brian Hoyer showed some chemistry with Doyle with two end zone targets. Both resulted in touch downs (although one was a touch down for Minkah Fitzpatrick).

Myles Gaskin RB Miami Dolphins

Kalen Ballage has struggled to get things going. And it’s very possible that he needs more of a workload to see results. But on the not so off chance Ballage does continue to be ineffective, Myles Gaskin is the next man up.

Gaskin had success in college with over 5300 yards and 65 TDs at Washington. And while he hasn’t played a snap, Ballage doesn’t strike me as a lock to hold onto the starting job.

DeAndre Carter WR Houston Texans

Keke Coutee has all but officially lost his job. He hasn’t played a single snap in the past two weeks and the next man up is DeAndre Carter.

So far in his two year career he has barely done anything besides kick returns. But he couldn’t be in a better situation. In games where defenses can slow down Kenny Stills and Deandre Hopkins, Carter should have some value.
