QUARTERBACK

If available: C.J. Stroud (76%), Sam Howell (62%)

Joshua Dobbs, Minnesota Vikings

*Roster Percentage: 18%

Guess who is QB10 on the season…none other than Josh Dobbs. YOU LIKE THAT? YOU LIKE THAT!! Dobbs made the waiver list last week after he was traded to the Vikings following Kirk Cousins’ season-ending injury with a torn Achilles. The plan was NOT for him to take the field in Week 9 but he was thrust into action once Jaren Hall went into concussion protocol. Having just arrived with the Vikings and taking no first team reps prior to the game it was no wonder mistakes were made. But Dobbs did enough to lead the team to a 31–28 win. He completed 20-of-30 attempts for 158 yards and two touchdowns while boosting his fantasy production with 66 yards on the ground. The team is waiting clearance for star wide receiver Justin Jefferson to begin practicing but if he does return it will only elevate Dobbs as a potential fantasy starter moving forward.

Will Levis, Tennessee Titans

Roster Percentage: 41%

After he wowed during his debut in Week 8 Levis faced a much tougher task against the Steelers defense and a short week coming into Thursday Night Football. He failed to score any touchdowns and only completed 22 of his 39 passes for 262 yards. The team travels to Tampa Bay for a favorable match-up against the Bucs. You could do worse if you are in need of a streaming option.

Baker Mayfield, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Roster Percentage: 48%

Baker Mayfield continues to be serviceable for fantasy purposes and with four teams on bye he’s on the streamer radar for Week 10. In Week 9 he completed 21-of-30 balls for 265 yards and two touchdowns. The Bucs take on the Titans this Week and should be able to get it done through the air.

Others to Consider:
Gardner Minshew (25% @ NE), Bryce Young (17% @ CHI), Taylor Heinicke (12% @ARI), Carson Wentz (0% signed with Rams as Stafford’s new backup but are on Bye in Week 10)

RUNNING BACK

If available: Khalil Herbert (62%)

Devin Singletary, Houston Texans

Roster Percentage: 49%

Many fantasy managers are disappointed by the Week 9 output of Devin Singletary but don’t give up yet. Tampa Bay is a shutdown run defense and better days are ahead. Dameon Pierce was out so even in a tough match-up we hoped for more, but what we got was 13 rushes for 26 yards. Even if Pierce returns we saw Singletary starting to pull ahead in this timeshare. Singletary is a flex consideration in Week 10 against the Bengals.

Keaton Mitchell, Baltimore Ravens

Roster Percentage: 4%

Mitchell has been on the watch list in weeks past but we finally saw some of that magic he put on display in the preseason before heading to IR. In Week 9 Mitchell destroyed rushing nine times for 138 yards and one touchdown. While this is a huge stat line we do have to take into account he is playing behind veterans Gus Edwards and Justice Hill and this came in a blow out win over the Seahawks. On the bright side he was seeing touches as early as the second quarter and received a 33% rush share. The undrafted rookie offers a different skillset than the vets ahead of him but this pint size package could provide some fantasy goodness in weeks to come.

Emari Demercado, Arizona Cardinals

Roster Percentage: 37%

After emerging in Week 8 with 20 carries for 78 yards he was ruled out for Week 9 with a toe injury. The return of Kyler Murray will elevate this offense and if Demercado is restored to health he could once again retain a workhorse role until James Conner returns (eligible to come off of IR as soon as this week).

Zach Charbonnet, Seattle Seahawks

Roster Percentage: 45%

The Seahawks are struggling but we did see rookie Zach Charbonnet once again out-snap starter Kenneth Walker. While it didn’t amount to much (four carries for eight yards) he was out there running a good share of routes. The talented back that should garner additional usage moving forward but for now he is more of a stash or low-end flex.

Others to Consider:
Antonio Gibson (45%), Ezekiel Elliott (44%), Tyjae Spears (41%), Leonard Fournette (31%), Jamaal Williams (29%), Ty Chandler (1%)

WIDE RECEIVER

Tank Dell, Houston Texans

Roster Percentage: 48%

After topping my waiver list at wide receiver last week Dell’s rostership actually dropped 2%? Well if you missed out last week this is your last call. Dell absolutely exploded in Week 9 reeling in six balls for 114 yards and two touchdowns. The Texans offense is spreading the ball around but Dell is an electric rookie with big play potential. I expect Houston to continue with their air attack this week when they travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals.

Khalil Shakir, Buffalo Bills

Roster Percentage: 6%

Shakir continues to battle Gabe Davis for the Bills WR2 job. In Week 9 he hauled in all four of his targets for 57 yards. While he might struggle with consistence for fantasy purposes I do like Shakir as an add to see how this develops. A Monday night match-up vs Denver could be a platform for him to shine.

Demario Douglas/JuJu Smith-Schuster, New England Patriots

Roster Percentage: 35%/19%

The Patriots receiving core has been a mess as of late, but as I mentioned last week I like rookie Demario Douglas to take a leap. In Week 9 he churned out five catches for 55 yards. As expected we did see the resurgence of TE Hunter Henry but also saw JuJu Smith-Schuster come out of his coffin with a solid perfomance catching six balls for 51 yards. While Juju is the bigger name here I still think I prefer Douglas but both should be considered as depth adds.

Others to Consider:
Quentin Johnston (34%), Odell Beckham Jr. (25%), Zay Jones (19%) Josh Reynolds (27%), Michael Wilson (12%), Noah Brown 2%, Cedric Tillman (0%)

TIGHT END

If available: Taysom Hill (65%)

Jonnu Smith, Atlanta Falcons

Roster Percentage: 29%

Just when you thought he might be slipping back into the cracks Smith reemerged with a vengeance catching 5-of-6 for 100 yards and a touchdown. Drake London was out for this one but we’ve seen some big days alongside London in the past. Just keep rollin’ him out there.

Hunter Henry, New England Patriots

Roster Percentage: 38%

I selected Henry as my sleeper TE to pop in Week 9 and it paid off. He caught four of his seven targets for 39 yards and a touchdown. After losing WR Kendrick Bourne for the season it just seemed natural for Mac Jones go back to his safety blanket Hunter Henry. And while I mentioned two other Patriots pass catchers earlier in this article as adds I would prefer Hunter Henry over both of them.

Cade Otton, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Roster Percentage: 22%

Cade Otton was a player I liked in dynasty last year but hasn’t exactly boomed, that is until last week when he grabbed six of his nice targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns. While I don’t expect this to be a trend I do think there is a growing connection with QB Baker Mayfield, and in this tight end landscape we need to take a chance on the upside players in hopes they can string some consecutive games together..

Others to Consider:
Tyler Conklin (14%), Albert Okwuegbunam (0%)

DEFENSE

Green Bay @ PIT
Las Vegas vs NYJ
