Week 10 DFS Picks
Ok, friends, I am back. Life has been a bit wild lately--tends to happen when working a full-time job, coaching a travel club volleyball team, and working on a doctorate degree. But here I am with your week 10 DFS plays.
This week I am focusing on value at the low end. I have four guys that you can use for cheap so that you can have the CMCs of the world locked and loaded.
#1 Christian Kirk 5,700 at Tampa Bay
He is finally back and healthy, and that is a great thing for this offense and fantasy owners as he goes into a matchup vs. the league's second-worst pass defense. This one just makes sense. He was a target machine before the injury (12th overall in targets per game) with a QB who just keeps getting better, in a matchup that has the highest O/U of the week at 52.5.
#2 John Brown 5,800 at Cleveland
John Brown quietly has racked up averages of 75.3 ypg and 7.5 targets per game this season, and he has at least 50 years in every game this season. That is great value at this price, and we know he has the big-play potential. That solid floor with high ceiling makes him a steal at 5,800. The Browns have been one of the better pass defenses; however, they do give up passing touchdowns, and I think this week Brown gets one of those over the top.
#3 Marquise Brown 5,300 at Cincy
Breaking News: Cincy is bad at football...like really bad. In particular, they are really bad at defending running QBs. This is good news for Hollywood Brown because it also means they are bad at defending the deep ball. I think that Cincy's need to contain Lamar (which they won't) leads to a few plays where they forget about Brown and his speed. We saw what that can lead to in week one, and while we have not seen that much since, I think this is the week we do.
#4 David Montgomery 6,400 at Detroit
He has been great in the last two weeks as Matt Nagy has finally figured out how to use him. Montgomery had 22.7 and 22.1 in the last two against MUCH tougher defenses than what he gets this week with Detriot who is sixth-worst in the league giving up 135 plus rush yards per game. With Stafford out, the Bears will not have to worry about trying to go score for score with Detriot; instead, Nagy can pound the rock. I think Montgomery has at least twenty carries and goes over 100 for sure.
