Recommended Lineup Week 10
All lineups are based off of a $1,000,000 salary cap featured at Daily Joust
, you best option in daily fantasy sports gaming. Lineups consist of a quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, one kicker and one team defense. Teams are created for contests including all Sunday and Monday games.
QB: Carson Palmer
(OAK) @ BAL--$182,000--On paper it appears that the Ravens have been good against opposing quarterbacks this season, but considering they have played the Browns twice and the Chiefs once, there high ranking may be bloated. The Raiders are passing the ball a ton this season and I expect this game to be much of the same with Carson Palmer passing at least 40 times on Sunday making him a great start this week.
RB: Marshawn Lynch
(SEA) vs. NYJ--$168,000--The Jets defense has given up double-digit fantasy points to opposing running backs in all but one game this season, which is the main reason I am rolling with Marshawn Lynch this week. The Seahawks offense will not have to do much outside of their rushing attack to win this game, so expect a high volume day from Lynch on Sunday.
RB: Marcel Reece
(OAK) @ BAL--$79,000--With both Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson ruled out for Sunday’s contest against the Ravens, Marcel Reece becomes a great value pick for daily contests. He may not get too many carries out of the backfield, but the Raiders use him a lot in the passing game and he has to ability to haul in passes and make big plays once the ball is in his hands so he is worth starting this week.
WR: Marques Colston
(NO) vs. ATL--$162,000--Usually I don’t base my opinions on previous matchups, but Marques Colston and Drew Brees connected 15 times for 194 yards and one touchdown in two games last season. If you add the fact that Colston has scored six touchdowns in his last five games there is good chance he finds the end zone this week against his divisional rival.
WR: Wes Welker
(NE) vs. BUF--$136,000--The Bills have had a very hard time stopping Wes Welker and the Patriots passing game over the last few seasons and this week should be no different. When these two teams met in Week 4, Welker finished with 9 receptions for 129 yards and 31 receptions for 397 yards and two touchdowns over their last three meetings, so he is a great start this week despite the high price tag.
WR: Kenny Britt
(TEN) @ MIA--$74,000--As a whole the Dolphins defense has been solid this season, but they have had trouble defending opposing wide receivers. The Dolphins are giving up an average over 20 fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this season, including three touchdowns allowed over the last two games, so Kenny Britt should have a nice game on Sunday.
TE: Greg Olsen
(CAR) vs. DEN--$61,000--The Broncos have given up the third-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season including six touchdowns in eight games. Although Greg Olsen has just one touchdown on the season, he has been more active in the passing game as of late and should get targeted often if the Panthers want to stay in this game.
K: Shayne Graham
(HOU) @ CHI--$79,000--This matchup isn’t the best for Shayne Graham and the Texans, but not many touchdowns will be scored in this one making Graham a solid play in a defensive showdown. The Bears defense has been great in terms of fantasy this season, but the Texans offense is good enough to get into field goal range for Graham to put points on the board.
DEF: Detroit Lions
@ MIN--$58,000--The Vikings are hurting and their biggest play-maker in the passing game has already been ruled out for Sunday’s game. The Lions have been good against the run, so as long as they can limit Adrian Peterson to minimal production they should be a good start this week considering their price tag.
Total Salary: $999,000
Value Picks for Week 10
(MIA)--$149,000--The Titans have allowed points in bunches to opposing quarterbacks and considering Ryan Tannehill’s production from last week he is good start on Sunday.
(TEN)--$135,000--Despite playing in his first game in almost a month, Jake Locker is a good start against a poor passing defense considering his current price tag.
(MIA)--$90,000--Daniel Thomas has been getting the rock lately despite Reggie Bush getting the bulk of the carries, but in this matchup he could find the end zone making his worth starting.
(NO)--$76,000--With Darren Sproles out, Chris Ivory should get enough carries to be worthy of starting this week even though Pierre Thomas and Mark Ingram are still in the mix.
(MIA)--$88,000--Like I said before, the Colts defense has trouble defending the pass, so Brian Hartline should get a lot of looks from Ryan Tannehill in this contest.
(CAR)--$86,000--With Champ Bailey taking on the duties to stop Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell should get open enough to be worthy of starting if you are in need of a cheap option at wide receiver.
(BUF)--$60,000--The Patriots are having a tough time against opposing tight ends this season and considering Chandler scored twice in Week 4 when the team’s first met, he is a good start this week.
(TEN)--$50,000--As you can see I like the Dolphins/Titans matchup this week, and with Jake Locker back under center Jared Cook should see more action than in previous weeks.
