Fantasy Sleepers Week 10: Carson Wentz & The Eagles Finally Getting Healthy

If you are in need of a fill-in option due to a bye week or injury, this is your chance to find some potential sleeper options to stun your opponent. This is also a spot to see what some of the best FLEX options are for Week 10. With a lot of injuries already sinking lineups, you are going to need to dive into deeper names that you might not be familiar with. To help set those lineups, head on over to our rankings and projections pages.


Carson Wentz – Philadelphia Eagles

Carson Wentz currently ranks 11th in QB scoring, with a game in hand. Despite the negativity surrounding Wentz’s plays which can be warranted at times, his team has been decimated by injuries. They are getting healthier on the offensive line and he now has a few more weapons this week. Wentz has averaged 22.9 fantasy points over the last three games. It is also a decent matchup against the Giants, who allow 8% more than the league average for fantasy points to quarterbacks.

Jared Goff – Los Angeles Rams

If you are one of the many needing a quarterback this week, Jared Goff should be your first option. He gets a tremendous matchup against the Seahawks, who are bottom five against quarterbacks in fantasy points allowed. Goff is a strong streaming option with this Seattle secondary struggling on the season. Goff has averaged 44 pass attempts in the last three games and while the fantasy points have been below average, this is a bounce-back spot coming out of the bye.

Running Backs

Wayne GallmanNew York Giants

Wayne Gallman has produced 14.8 fantasy points per game over the last three and while the ceiling is pretty capped, it is hard to argue with the touches. He is seeing three targets per game and 12 rushing attempts per game in the last three. Devonta Freeman is heading back on the IR, so Gallman is a guy to grab for at least the next three weeks. It isn’t a great matchup against the Eagles, but Gallman has held his own and the volume is what we are after.

Duke Johnson – Houston Texans

With David Johnson still not practicing, it is hard to see him getting cleared in time for Sunday’s game against Cleveland. That means Duke Johnson will have a heavy workload against his former team. The Browns have a good run defense but have struggled against receiving backs at times this season. With high winds, Johnson should have a role in the passing game regardless in addition to 12+ attempts on the ground. Johnson will have RB2 value based off volume but likely better used as a FLEX option. He should see at least 15 touches this week and was used heavily once Johnson left the game last week.

Wide Receivers

Mike Williams – Los Angeles Chargers

Mike Williams has averaged 11.8 fantasy points per game over the last three and has six targets per game in that span. I like him this week against a Miami secondary that has improved but is still allowing plenty of fantasy points to wide receivers. Williams is a strong WR3 or FLEX option this week, and Justin Herbert being under center continues to power up this Chargers offense. This is a game with a handful of wide receiver targets for this week, especially with the Dolphins in deeper leagues. Williams projects for 5.7 targets, but of course has room for a few more depending on how this game sets up.

Anthony Miller – Chicago Bears

The Bears passing attack certainly isn’t one we think of targeting often, but against Minnesota, you can make a case for Anthony Miller who has averaged eight targets over the past three games and has averaged double-digit fantasy points in that same span. Minnesota is also bottom ten in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers on the season. Chicago continues to struggle overall but the receivers have had some fantasy value of late and that is a plus given most of them are free. Miller projects for 5.7 targets this week, but the game script could push that if the Vikings offense shows up.

Tim Patrick – Denver Broncos

Tim Patrick has averaged 12.5 fantasy points per game over his last three healthy games. Injuries have popped up but he has rested during the week and he also made his return against the Falcons. He should be ready to roll this week. He has a 20.3 fantasy point ceiling this season and the matchup with the Raiders is a decent one for him. They are in the bottom third in fantasy points allowed to receivers and are bottom-ten in pass defense this season. Patrick has been a go-to guy for Lock on the year and has seven targets over the last three weeks and projects for over seven this week.

Tight Ends

Dallas Goedert – Philadelphia Eagles

Dallas Goedert returned prior to the Eagles bye week and had just one target against Dallas. That is uncharacteristic and not something I will take into consideration moving forward. He is a strong part of this Eagles offense and you should be jumping at him off the waiver wire if you are in need of some tight end help. As mentioned above, the Eagles are getting healthy and Goedert is a part of that. On paper, this team looks so much better and we should see that kick in against a pedestrian Giants defense. Goedert projects for six targets this week, which is a solid number for him.

Mike Gesicki – Miami Dolphins

I am willing to take a chance on Mike Gesicki this week in a good spot against the Chargers, who are allowing 11% more fantasy points than the league average to tight ends. He hasn’t seen a heavy role this season but does have an 18.4 fantasy point ceiling on the year. With Preston Williams out and Isaiah Ford traded, I am curious if he sees a tick up in targets, and hopefully out of the slot where is he is capable of causing some damage. Miami has a 25.5 implied total and with Tua under center, this offense has still looked good for fantasy purposes.
