NFL Fantasy Football Tips for Week 10 (2015)


It’s unfortunate that our fantasy football team is striking out as much as we are in the dating game. There isn’t too much ‘gettin it in’ around us at the moment, but hopefully, that will change soon. In times of struggle, the best we can do is turn to the experts. We’ll work on our dating woes offline, but in terms of setting your rosters, we’re here to provide you the best NFL fantasy football tips for Week 10. This week, we are getting our fantasy advice straight from the horse’s mouth, Michael Fabiano of There are some big matchups to keep our eyes on. The New York Giants and New England Patriots renew their rivalry. While on the West Coast, it will be all about the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks.

Quarterback Start of the Week

Andy Dalton versus Houston Texans

Who says gingers get no love? Fabiano writes, “Dalton should thrive against the Houston Texans, who have struggled vs. quarterbacks. Their defense has surrendered 18.34 fantasy points a game to the position.” We concur. Dalton has a plethora of weapons, AJ Green, Tyler Eifert, Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu, and Giovani Bernard out of the backfield. The Texans are atrocious and it has been a lost season for J.J. Watt and DeAndre Hopkins.

Other Quarterbacks to Consider

The other quarterbacks projected to have big weeks are Cam Newton versus the Tennessee Titans, Joe Flacco versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Eli Manning against the New England Patriots. If it’s not the playoffs, we don’t pick Flacco. We love Eli, but let’s face it, too inconsistent to trust.

Amari Cooper, Oakland Raiders     

Wide Receiver Starts of the Week

Brandin Cooks (Saints) versus Washington

After a slow start, Cooks has scored a combined 33.6 fantasy points in his last two games. Fantasy sports fans should ride him while Drew Brees is hot, and this week’s game against [Washington] makes him a solid option. Washington’s defense has struggled against the opposition’s No. 1 wide receiver, so look for Cooks to post another solid total.”

We agree. Since the shootout with the New York Giants, Brees has found his rhythm. It’s led to more production from Willie Snead and Brandin Cooks. Cooks has also been able to practice for the last two weeks after battling an injury.

Other Matchups to Watch

The other matchups to watch are Allen Robinson versus the Baltimore Ravens, Jarvis Landry versus the Philadelphia Eagles, and Amari Cooper against any team in the NFL.

Runningback Start of the Week

De’Angelo Williams versus Cleveland Browns

“Williams has been a stat-sheet stuffer this season in the absence of Le’Veon Bell. We expect the trend to continue. Cleveland has still been vulnerable to runners overall. In fact, backs have averaged 23.16 fantasy points a game against them in 2015.” This is a 50/50 pick. The Steelers are committed to their running game, but Ben Roethlisberger has not ignored the emergence of wide receivers Marcus Wheaton and the stellar play of Antonio Brown. If we had a gun to our head, we would select Williams as our RB2.

Other backs to Consider

  • DeMarco Murray versus the Miami Dolphins — We don’t trust Chip Kelly or that offensive line enough yet to see Murray continuing to trend upwards.
  • Doug Martin versus the Dallas Cowboys — Please yes!

We hope our fantasy football tips for Week 10 help you dominate your league. Good luck and let us know how you did next week.
