The Broncos, Texans, Jaguars, Patriots, Eagles, and Redskins all have a bye in week 10. A lot of these teams have some heavy hitting fantasy players, and there’s a chance you’re missing a key component of your team. Here are some recommendations for FLEX options for week 10.
Singletary, who has struggled with injury this season, was given a huge workload in week 9. He had 95 yards off of 20 carries, and three receptions for 45 yards. Clearly, the Bills have deemed him healthy and ready to go. Singletary and the Bills are taking on the Browns this weekend. The Browns allow an average 141.2 rushing yards per game, the third most in the league. If Singletary is going to get a similar workload this week, which I think he will, he’s probably going to put up some big numbers.
Looking at his running stats, it would seem Samuels didn’t have a great game last week, going 10 yards on 8 carries. However, it seems the Steelers had a different plan for him. Samuels was targeted 13 times through the air, and caught every target for a total of 73 yards. James Conner is unlikely to play on Sunday, which means Samuels is probably looking at another game with a lot of targets. The Steelers are playing against the Rams, who have a middling secondary this season, so it’s looking like a bit of a favorable matchup for Samuels.
Ronald Jones II
Ronald Jones has been a waiver wire watch this season, and he’s back on a lot of lists after a big game against the Seahawks in week 9. He went 67 yards and scored a touchdown off of his 18 carries. The Buccaneers backfield has switching between Barber and Jones as leaders quite a bit this season. However, Jones has out carried Barber in the Buccaneers last three games. Based on his workload from last week, comparing his 18 carries to Barber’s 4, it seems the Buccaneers have settled on a starting back. The Buccaneers have a good matchup against the Cardinals, who allow an average 126.9 yards per game on the ground. I’m expecting Jones to have a similar workload and put up similar if not better stats this weekend.
J.D. McKissic had 4 carries for 32 yards and 3 receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown last week which adds up to 16.2 points in PPR leagues, a pretty solid performance for a back who’s owned in less than 20% of leagues. Kerryon Johnson was placed on IR, so McKissic is going to be getting game time for a while. The Lions have a tough offensive matchup against a strong Bears defense, but McKissic proved to be very efficient on few carries. I think he has the chance to have another big game this weekend.
Brown was one of Lamar Jackson’s favorite targets at the beginning of the season but went out in week 3 due to an injury. He returned for the Ravens’ win over the Patriots on Sunday, and is most likely looking at a bigger workload for week 10. The Ravens have a great matchup against the Bengals this week, and I’m expecting huge yards for their offense. Hopefully Brown is feeling good and can handle a bigger workload, as this would be a great game for him to get back into the swing of things.
Brandin Cooks is out with another concussion, which gives Reynolds a spot as the third wideout in the Rams offense. The Rams throw the ball on 62% of their offensive plays, which is in the top 10 among all teams. Reynolds went 73 yards and scored a touchdown off of his 3 receptions, and had 8 targets after Cooks left the game. They have a tougher matchup this week against the Steelers secondary, but I think Reynolds is still going to get a lot of targets this week. Even if he doesn’t get a huge amount, he proved he can be very efficient with the chances that he’s given, so he might be a good add despite a tougher defensive matchup.
The Dolphins looked better against a pretty good Jets defense this past week. DaVante Parker had 4 receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown. Fitzpatrick has breathed a little magic into this team and got them their first win last week, and I think Parker is going to be putting up better numbers because of him. They’re matched up against the Colts this week, who have a pretty good secondary. I think Parker will still be getting a fair amount of targets, and has the chance to have a game similar to his game in week 9.
