2022 Week 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers
🚨 Heads Up 🚨 They are sleepers. They will not mimic my ranking 100%. It is chasing upside and often carries more risk.
Likely starter: Daniel Jones, NYG — Jones had his worst game of the season on the receiving end, but it came against a decent defense (Seahawks). With a week off to reset and plan for the Texans matchup, Jones should rebound… well, mainly for the matchup and not so much Jones’ passing ability. It’s really Jones’ legs that boost his fantasy value, with three games of 68+ rushing yards and two of his 20+ point games coming with a rushing touchdown (or two). Hopefully, Jones doesn’t choke in Week 8.
Likely starter: Richard White, TB — Reports suggest the Buccaneers could lean more on White as the season winds down, and against the Seahawks, it could start this week. Although the Seahawks defense against receivers is better than expected, they are extremely susceptible to pass-catching running backs, as Austin Eckler destroyed them with a 12-12-96-1 line, Alvin Kamara was 6-6-91 receiving, Javonte Williams Week 1- A went 12-11-65-0, even James Conner went 5-5-19 in his return last week.
Hail Mary Start: Isiah Pacheco, KC – As mentioned in the podcast, I want nothing to do with the Chiefs, Broncos, Rams and Bills backfields…if possible. Yes, we’ll probably have to use someone every week, especially with the Chiefs and Bills offense, and this time, we can shoot Pacheco upside. It lies with hopes of a touchdown and run while holding a lead. The backfield is a true committee with Jerick McKinnon out of the others, but Pacheco will likely see more runs (no pun intended) with a healthy lead, which the Chiefs should have against the Jaguars.
Likely starter: DeAndre Carter, LAC — Josh Palmer’s advice is paying off nicely, so let’s get to Carter this week. He was a good option in Week 9, but has upside for more against the 49ers despite what it might look like on paper. 49 leads the league in receptions of 20+ yards and, yes, a few of them went to the Cooper Cup alone, but the Panthers also had four such receptions in Week 5. Carter has big play potential with a 10.4 Air/TGT and 20.8% of his receptions going for 20+ yards, despite playing predominantly out of the slot. Carter has a great chance to grow and not flop.
Likely Start: Von’Dale Robinson, NYG — From Weeks 6-8, Robinson tied with Darius Slayton for the team lead in target percentage (17.6) and was one of three players with the most receptions (11) to catch a touchdown. His down game was 3-2-15-0 before the bye (thanks, Daniel Jones). It’s the two previous games that we expect him to emulate, as the matchup is favorable (Texans), as long as the Giants don’t get out early and run out the clock.
Hail Mary Start: Donovan Peoples-Jones, CLE — Surprisingly, Amari Cooper dominates at home and struggles a bit on the road, with DPJ showing up. The Browns have gone five to three road games at home, and so far, Peeples-Jones is 20-13-215 on the road and 26-17-202 at home. The Browns also head to Miami for what we can expect is a shootout and Jacoby Brissett’s second game attempting 40+ passes this year.
Hail Mary Sturt: Cade Auton, TB — Even if Cameron Brett returns, I’d be willing to gamble with Wotton, who is third on the team in TmTGT% through Week 4 (Brett played in Weeks 4 and 6). Auton is also second in red zone and end zone targets during that stretch, turning in a 30-22-242-1 line. What really helps is the matchup with the Seahawks. No opposing tight end has failed to score at least 5.2 points — TJ Hockenson destroyed them in Week 4, Zach Ertz was 5-40-1 last week and even Tanner Hudson managed 3-58-0 for the Giants.
Fun with ranking!
Best football party food
This week it’s back to food, and I have a huge appetite to fight off this flu… or whatever it is. I’m always on the go hungry when sick — some people just don’t want to eat anything — so I thought, “Why not a list of the top 10 football party foods?” It’s the middle of the NFL season, after all, so let’s… rank up… and eat some great food. Glad to hear your suggestions too. I always love to try new foods/snacks.
- the pizza — Why have a football party if you don’t have pizza? I’ll have multiple varieties of pizza besides regular pizza — bites, rolls, breads, etc.
- Buffalo Chicken Dip – I can only assume that this is what the road to heaven tastes like. I have to portion it out on my plate or I end up covering the whole bowl.
- wings — would rank higher if not for the endless need for napkins/wipes. Louisiana Flavor is my go-to (Wingstop or my own).
- Slider — It’s really in a category of its own, but whether it’s burgers, BBQ, chicken, etc., they’re a must-have, especially for convenience as opposed to full-size burgers.
- Soft pretzels — I may be crazy, but I absolutely love me some soft pretzels — whether it’s a giant pretzel “log” everyone shares, bites, or a full-on pretzel — and there’s everything from salt to cinnamon sugar and more.
- Buffalo Chicken Rolls — These are similar to spring rolls (size and makeup) but only filled with buffalo chicken. Easy to make, eat and love.
- Chips — Utz over lace!
- Pig in a blanket — Did you know that the plural is pigs in blankets? Cute, huh?
- Mac and cheese — Simple side, super tasty, and you can add different spins to it.
- Tacos/Layer Dip/Nachos — You could argue it should be ranked higher, and I won’t argue too much, but buffalo chicken dip is so much better, and I hate beans, especially dip in refried glop. If you leave the beans, I will dive!
Bonus: Monkey Bread — if you’ve never done it (maybe you just didn’t understand what it’s called), do yourself a favor and do it next time. Like the chicken wings, there’s a lot of hand washing involved afterwards, but that’s what Cloud Heaven tastes like. Imagine a cinnamon roll in the middle — you’ll find it in every bite!
Buying and selling
- Justin Herbert, QB, LAC — I’m far from a Herbert apologist, but he doesn’t have a full complement of weapons this year, and if Keenan Allen and/or Mike Williams can return, the Chargers have a middle-of-the-road schedule, as Herbert still has plenty of upside. .
- Michael Carter, RB, NYJ — Yes, splitting the backfield, but a favorable schedule, and managers “high selling” can come up with a good game.
- Gus Edwards, RB, BAL — With the Ravens on a bye, Edwards leads if healthy and should be back in Week 11.
- Courtland Sutton, WR, DEN — was here last week, because earlier this year Jerry Judy had a bad time, and now Sutton is in the middle of it. I don’t expect a top 20 ROS for Sutton, but the directors are dropping him outright.
- Diontae Johnson, WR, PIT — here last week, too, as Chase Claypool’s departure narrows the passing tree for Kenny Pickett, and the volume was already high with Johnson.
- Michael Pittman, WR, IND — Sam Ehlinger at quarterback is a concern, but Pittman is still in the WR3 conversation along with the likes of other boom/bust options like Gabriel Davis.
- Pat Freiermuth, TE, PIT — Like Johnson, Freiremuth would benefit from Claypool being out of the equation.
- Justin Fields, QB, CHI — We discussed field ROS athletic Fantasy football the pod, and he’s pushing close to the top 5 at QB, but some already have him there. I’d still take Tua Tagovailoa, so if others in your league view him better than Joe Burrow/Kyler Murray/etc., you’re getting the highest return value — even if Fields keeps it up… run.
- Joe Mixon, RB, CIN — not just because of all those touchdowns in Week 9, but because the Bengals have one of the worst schedules for a running back in the fantasy playoffs.
- Josh Jacobs, RB, LV — Jacobs might be a tough sell right now, but you could argue that this is a rough stretch for the Raiders, when in reality, the schedule for weeks 14-17 doesn’t look too good, and the Raiders could start looking toward 2023.
- Tyler Boyd, WR, CIN — seems obvious, but there are plenty of inexperienced leagues with managers who could bite with Ja’Ma Chase out.
- Darnell Mooney, WR, CHI — Fields took several shots with Claypool in his first game with the Bears. Mooney has been good as a volume king in the Bears’ passing game, and if Mooney drops even five percentage points in TmTGT%, his value will be huge.
