Week 10 NFL DFS Sleepers


Ryan Fitzpatrick ($5,900 DK – $7,600 FD)

Fitzmagic did typical Fitzmagic stuff last week, at Carolina he threw for 243 yards with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. The Bucs come home this weekend and will face the Redskins who gave up 350 yards and 4 touchdowns to the Falcons on their own home turf. The over/under this game is tied for the second highest at 51 with Tampa Bay 3 point favorites. Fitzpatrick’s career has been a bit of a roller coaster, the big question is — are you tall enough to ride this ride?

Andy Dalton ($5,800 DK – $7,900 FD)

The highest over/under this week is New Orleans at Cincinnati with the bar set at 54. Dalton is going to have to throw the ball all over the yard if they’re going to have a chance at hanging with the Saints. The Bengals will be without A.J. Green for the time being but Boyd has stepped up in a major way this year and Mixon is a lethal threat in both the running and passing game.

Running Back

David Johnson ($6,800 DK – $6,900 FD)

Last week was the week of the cow (bell-cow) and this week will be much of the same. It’s tough to call David Johnson (a top 5 pick in almost every league this year) a sleeper but Arizona’s offense has been hot garbage dropping his price into the $6,000’s. Kansas City gives up 5.2 yards per carry so maybe the Cardinals can get something going on the ground this week but if not — Johnson is still a very dynamic pass catcher.

Adrian Peterson ($5,700 DK – $6,800 FD)

Last week AP gained a very underwhelming 17 yards on 9 carries in a blowout loss to the Panthers. He’s averaged 17 carries per game and the Bucs have let up just over 100 yards on the ground per game at 4.4 yards a pop. This week there won’t be any Chris Thompson again so I expect AP to be well rested and ready to take on a big workload.

Mark Ingram ($4,500 DK – $6,800 FD)

When people are high on Kamara — go Ingram, when people are high on Ingram — go Kamara. That’s a rule that I’m living by when it becomes almost impossible to gauge which back is going to go off. Kamara had 4 catches, 19 carries, and 3 touchdowns last week bumping up his ownership and price tag for this week. This leaves Ingram overlooked and low owned so I would consider sprinkling him into your GPP lineups.

Wide Receiver

Jarvis Landry ($6,200 DK – $6,400 FD)

This week the Browns face off against the Falcons and their lackluster secondary. The real value in this game would be finding the WR that goes off between Callaway, Higgins, Perriman, and Ratley. Since I don’t have a crystal ball, and the Browns organization is a circus, I’m going to go with the guy that averages over 11 targets per game — Jarvis Landry.

Larry Fitzgerald ($5,400 DK – $5,800 FD)

In his last three games Larry has had 8, 8, and 12 targets while his snap count % has gone up each of those weeks. Coming off of a bye his old man legs should be rested and he should continue to have a large share of this offense, which will be crucial facing the juggernaut that is the Kansas City Chiefs.

Adam Humphries ($3,900 DK – $5,700 FD)

Humphries had a big week against the Panthers leading the team with 8 catches for 82 yards and 2 touchdowns. In 3 out of their last 4 games he has seen over 70% of the offensive snaps (which has him on the field much more than DeSean and Godwin). All signs point to Adam this week, especially at that price tag.

Tight End

David Njoku ($4,200 DK – $5,400 FD)

Right behind Landry on the team in targets is Njoku with just over 7 per game. Atlanta gives up over 300 yards per game in the air so I suspect both Njoku and Landry will see plenty of action in this one.

Trey Burton ($3,900 DK – $6,100 FD)

This Chicago offense seems to be pretty balanced with 5 guys seeing 5+ targets each week. Burton is one of those guys and on top of that he is tied with Jordan Howard for the most touchdowns on the team this year. The last two weeks he has only seen 4 and 3 targets but that was against the Jets and the Bills so this week he should be back over 5.
