It's time to take down the NFL Week 10 DFS main slate, #FANation! Between bye weeks and prime-time games we only have 10 games to work with and, on top of that, six of those games have an expected game total of 42 points or less, so weeding through which players to invest in and which ones to discard becomes even more challenging. If you've been listening to the Fantasy Alarm Show on SiriusXM Fantasy Spots Radio all week, you have a pretty good idea as to which direction we are likely headed this week, but between updates to the NFL Week 10 Injury Report, some NFL weather conditions to watch and just general lineup construction questions regarding paying up vs down, things are getting complicated.

If you are looking at the pricing tiers and weekly matchups, you'll see why we have some concerns. It's about value or the lack thereof here on the Sunday main slate. There are three quarterbacks who I trust this week. That's really it. There are very few, if any, value plays to be found at running back and this is the first week in who knows how long that we have an elite tight end like Travis Kelce available to us. That means we have to find our bargains where…? The wide receiver position? But what do we do about guys like Tyreek Hill or some of the other high-end wideouts we've been leaning on all year? Is there enough value to be had so that we can build zero-fat cash lineups? It's not going to be as easy. In fact, it might be easier to build winning GPP lineups this week. But I don't want to scare you. We've got some fantastic options across multiple pricing tiers here in the NFL Week 10 DFS Playbook and if you read through the descriptions, you should have any trouble building successful lineups for all types of contests.



Now, before we get to the Playbook players, allow me to remind you what you should be doing leading up this step in your research.

Step 1: Check out the DFS Position Coaches

QB Coach – Jon Impemba (@jimpemba777)

RB Coach -- Justin Vreeland (@JustinVreeland)

WR Coach -- Colby Conway (@colbyrconway)

TE Coach -- Andrew Cooper (@CoopAFiasco)

D/ST Coach -- Dan Malin (@RealDANlanta)

Step 2: Check out the rest of the relevant DFS content

In addition to the positional coaching pieces, you also have things like the DFS Watch List, where I provide you with a list of players I am looking at throughout the week. We have the NFL DFS Podcast with me and Jon Impemba, who also does the Contrarian Corner video and check out the DFS Bargains from Tera Roberts (@ItsTeraTime).


Also, our Master of Tools, Matt Selz (@theselzman), supplies you data junkies with the Weekly Match-Up Report and everyone should also be checking out the WR/CB Match-Up Report from Ryan Hallam (@fightingchance).

Speaking of tools, we have also done some major enhancements with our NFL tools. We continue to crunch the numbers and tweak our algorithms so that our daily fantasy football projections are the best in the industry and that, in turn, has improved things like our Lineup Generator/DFS Optimizer, our DFS Compare tool and even our NFL DFS Ownership Projections. Again, all right here on one site for your convenience.

Step 3: Make your own list of players

It's real easy to just sit and wait for the Playbook, but as you are doing your research throughout the week, it is important to make notes and list the players who interest you the most. Maybe they end up in the Playbook and maybe they don't. If they're there, then great, it should mean we are honing in on the same things that make him a strong play. If not, maybe you're onto something else that someone overlooked. We aren't perfect and if you uncover something different, maybe you're right. I would be careful of routine groupthink and hype from beat writers, but often times someone will tell me something they saw about their local team that I missed and I am always looking to investigate more if its there. If you do, then say something in our Fantasy Alarm Discord Chat, Talk it out and see what the rest of the #FAmily thinks. That's why the chat is there, isn't it?

With those three steps complete and discussions are in progress, you are ready to look at the Playbook players, make comparisons and finalize your list for lineups, so let's get to it.
