Quarterback

Derek Carr, Las Vegas Raiders

Carr is having a pretty decent season, completing 67.3 percent of passes, and averaging 320.6 yards and 1.6 touchdowns per game this season. In Week 10, Carr has a fantastic matchup against the Chiefs.

The Chiefs are allowing 21.8 Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Plus, Carr had a lot of success against this defense last season. He had 622 yards and six touchdowns in his two games last season, so you can imagine what Carr will do against this dysfunctional defense.

Running Backs

Adrian Peterson, Tennessee Titans

Peterson was only on the field for 33 percent of the Titans' offensive snaps and still led the team in carries last week. So, another week of learning the playbook should lead to a higher snap count and touch rate.

He has a difficult matchup against the Saints, his former team. Maybe, the revenge game narrative will evaluate his play against this touch matchup.

It's tough out here for vampires when looking for starting running backs, so we always have to take workload over matchup.

Elijah Mitchell, San Francisco 49ers

Well, Elijah Mitchell was able to keep Jeff Wilson on the bench in Week 9. But the Niners were blown out so that probably factors into Kyle Shanahan's decision-making on running back usage.

Right now, Mitchell appears to still be the guy for another week and has a so-so matchup against the Rams.

The Rams are allowing 23.8 fantasy points per game to running backs this season.

Wide Receivers

Deonte Harris, New Orleans Saints

In the Saints ' previous four games, Harris has been a solid producer, averaging six targets, 52.8 yards, and 14.1 yards-per-reception. Harris has a legit connection with Trevor Siemian; Harris is averaging 7.5 targets with Siemian under center.

He has a great matchup in Week 10 against the Titans. They are allowing the most Fantasy points to wide receivers (47.1 Fantasy points per game). The Titans allow the most red-zone targets to wide receivers by a large margin. Plus, they allow the most yards to wide receiver threes this season (107.2 yards per game).

Someone on the Saints has to catch the ball. It's not Micheal Thomas; he's still out. It's not Marquez Callaway; he can't catch a cold in a leper colony. So that leaves Tre'Quan Smith and Deonte Harris.

Rashod Bateman, Baltimore Ravens

Bateman has been a great addition to the Ravens' offense. He is averaging 6.7 targets, 53.7 yards, and 13.4 yards-per-reception. I think Bateman will have a career day against the Miami Dolphins in Week 10.

The Dolphins allow the third-most Fantasy points (42.3) to wide receivers. They allow the second-most yards (192.7 per game) to wide receivers.

Tight End

Dan Arnold, Jacksonville Jaguars

Arnold has quickly become Trevor Lawerence's security blanket. Arnold is averaging 8.5 targets and 64 yards in his two starts as a Jaguar.

Now, he has a fantastic matchup against the Colts, who allow 16.6 Fantasy points per game to tight ends. They are allowing 8.2 targets and 63.1 yards per game to tight ends.

So that matches up perfectly with Arnold's averages. Hopefully, he lands in the end zone in Week 10. He should because the Colts are tied for the second-most touchdowns allowed to tight ends.

Flex

Amon-Ra St. Brown, Detroit Lions

St. Brown has had some solid performances between Week 4 and Week 6, averaging 7.7 targets and 53.7 yards. But it was a different story in his last two games, where he only averaged 2.5 targets and 23 yards.

Hopefully, his matchup against the Steelers will get him on track. The Steelers are allowing 37.7 Fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season.

Defense/ Special Teams

Arizona Cardinals

The Panthers' offense has struggled and now will turn to their backup quarterback P.J. Walker (to be honest, he might be better than Darnold). There are factors present for the Cardinals' defense to have a few turnovers in Week 10.
