Fantasy Football Week 10: Start’em / Sit’em

2 of 4

Roddy White, @TB (69%, 13) – I’m giving White one more chance. He’s looked slow to me and he may be done as a fantasy starter, but matchups don’t get much better than this one. If White has another weak fantasy line, he’s going to find himself on a few waiver wires. If you can’t get open against TB, you cant get open in the NFL.

Sammy Watkins, KC (58%, 12) – I know he’s banged up, but also know that in his last two games with Orton under center Watkins has 277 receiving yards and 3 TDs (should have been 4). He is a special talent and is already an automatic start for me regardless of matchup.

Mike Evans, ATL (49%, 11) – Had a breakout game last week with 7 catches for 124 yards and 2 TDs. The switch at QB to Josh McCown could recreate last year’s McCown to Jeffery deep connection. Evans is one of the best deep threats in the league already and McCown throws a pretty back-shoulder fade. The 6’5 Evans could have a big day against a short Falcons secondary.

Justin Hunter, @BAL (15%, 9) – Looked like rookie QB Zach Mettenberger’s favorite option last week (10 targets) and while Mettenberger has plenty of flaws, arm strength isn’t one of them. He is going to air it out and Hunter is the Titans best deep threat. I could see them connecting on a bomb this week against a surprisingly vulnerable Ravens secondary that has given up the 2nd most fantasy points to WRs.

Jordan Matthews, CAR (9%, 7) – Has two double-digit fantasy games in a row and has become the Eagles WR2. His role in the offense is going to increase in the 2nd half and I think the 6’5 Matthews could exploit the under-sized Panthers secondary this week.

Davante Adams,CHI (8%, 7) – The Bears are rotating between a trio of untested CBs in the slot and that is where Adams has been lining up the last few weeks. Barring bad weather in GB, this could be a shootout and Adams could be open all day.

Travis Kelce, @BUF (63%, 7) – One of the most under-rated TEs in the game and possibly the Chiefs most explosive receiving option. Eventually they will start using Kelce more right?

Martellus Bennett, @GB (62%, 10) – Had a huge game against the Packers in their last meeting (9-134) and I don’t think the Packers have a LB fast enough to stay with the Black Unicorn.

Mychal Rivera, DEN (23%, 7) – Has led the Raiders in targets the last two weeks with 20 and should be a popular target again this week with the Broncos secondary shutting down the Raiders deep options.

Owen Daniels, TEN (38%, 8) – Has quietly put up solid statistics the last two weeks (12-111-1) and seems to have earned Joe Flacco’s trust as a safety-valve option.
