Diamonds In The Rough – Fantasy Football Awww’s And Naw’s Week 10

Aww Quarterbacks

Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (home vs Arizona Cardinals) –This is a revenge game for Buccaneers’ head coach Bruce Arians so he’ll get Winston extra hyped for this good matchup at home.


Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals (away vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – The Buccaneers’ defense has allowed the fourth highest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. After a good performance last week against a strong Niners’ defense, Murray should be solid on the road.


Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers (home vs. Seattle Seahawks) – Garoppolo has been ballin’ since the Niners acquired wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. They are playing Monday night at home against MVP candidate Russell Wilson, in what could be a shootout.



Naw Quarterbacks

Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions (away vs. Chicago Bears) – As good as Stafford is playing, he may struggle a bit on the road against the Chicago Bears, who have only allowed four touchdowns against opposing quarterbacks at home.


Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills (away vs. Cleveland Browns) – A winnable game for the Buffalo Bills but don’t expect huge fantasy numbers from Allen on the road.



Aww Running Backs

Jaylen Samuels, Pittsburgh Steelers (home vs. Los Angeles Rams) – As long as running back James Conner is out, Samuels should be in all fantasy lineups.


Ronald Jones, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (home vs. Arizona Cardinals) – Tampa finally Bay has a featured running back, who’ll get 15-20 touches without a timeshare. Jones should build off last week’s performance in a home matchup against the Cardinals.



Naw Running Backs

Kenyon Drake, Arizona Cardinals (away vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – Running back David Johnson is expected to be back in the lineup as the starter so don’t expect last week numbers from Drake against the Buccaneers. Drake will still have a role, but his touches will be limited.


Joe Mixon, Cincinnati Bengals (home vs. Baltimore Ravens) – It’s hard to trust Mixon this weekend after his week six performance against the Ravens. He only had eight carries for ten yards, as well as two catches for 29 yards on three targets.



Aww Wide Receivers

Emmanuel Sanders, San Francisco 49ers (home vs. Seattle Seahawks) – In two games with the Niners, Sanders has 11 catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns on 14 targets. I expect Sanders to continue his hot streak this weekend against the Seahawks.


DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins (away vs. Indianapolis Colts) – Fellow wide receiver Preston Williams is out for the year with an ACL injury so Parker should see an uptick in targets and production.



Naw Wide Receivers

JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh Steelers (home vs. Los Angeles Rams) – It’s been a disappointing fantasy season for Smith-Schuster since quarterback Ben Roethlisberger went down for the year. This weekend’s matchup against the Rams will be tough for him as he’ll be guarded by all-pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey.


Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams (away vs. Pittsburgh Steelers) – Woods has yet to catch a touchdown this season and he’s been in single digits in PPR formats in three of his past four games. This looks like a Cooper Kupp/Gerald Everett type game.


Aww Tight Ends

Mike Gesicki, Miami Dolphins (away vs. Indianapolis Colts) – Gesicki has been playing well in the last few games and with wide receiver Preston Williams out for the year, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will be relying on Gesicki more.


Gerald Everett, Los Angeles Rams (away vs. Pittsburgh Steelers) – Here’s an interesting fact: the Steelers have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends in their past three games. With wide receiver Brandin Cooks out this week, Everett should get more catches.



Naw Tight Ends

Jimmy Graham, Green Bay Packers (home vs. Carolina Panthers) – With six teams on a bye this week, you might not have options. Graham has scored just seven fantasy points or less in four of his past five games and the Panthers have only allowed one touchdown to a tight end since week one.



Aww Team Defense

Los Angeles Rams (away vs. Pittsburgh Steelers) – I’m just not sold on quarterback Mason Rudolph to get the job done in the air.



Naw Team Defense

Dallas Cowboys (home vs. Minnesota Vikings) – Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins has been playing good of late, even without their star wide receiver Adam Thielen. They’ll be able to score on the Cowboys.
