Week 10 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings & Projections: Aaron Jones Ready To Roll Against Jacksonville

It was a monster week for quarterbacks in Week 9, as Kyler Murray, Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Josh Allen all had four touchdowns. Dalvin Cook, Davante Adams, and DK Metcalf put up another huge fantasy score, while Christian McCaffrey got back into the groove. The tight end position is a bit light this week with Travis Kelce on bye and George Kittle is done for the year. With the Chiefs, Cowboys, Falcons, and Jets on bye this week, there are a lot of wide receivers that come off the board.

9Carson Wentz@NYG19.6
10Baker MayfieldHOU19.4

Deshaun Watson comes in at number one this week with a friendly matchup against the Cleveland Browns, who have allowed 25.3 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Watson will continue to have to put the team on his back as they struggle with the run game and the defense is allowing a hefty amount of points. Over the past five weeks, Watson is averaging the 4th most fantasy points per game. Jared Goff is a guy to target as a top-ten play this week and is a great fill-in option for Mahomes or Ryan if you need someone. Goff has been middle of the road this season but a matchup against the Seahawks is going to get him going. They are allowing 33 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season.

Justin Herbert has been terrific and is averaging 31.7 fantasy points per game over the last four games. Now the Dolphins defense isn’t bad, but they have allowed 24.3 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Herbert has provided a strong floor and is likely to finish out a top-ten quarterback. Carson Wentz for as bad people think he has been, he has not been that for fantasy. Wentz is averaging the 9th most fantasy points per game in the past five weeks. He gets the Giants who are a middle of the road defense against the pass and allow 21.6 fantasy points per game. Baker Mayfield is coming off a bye week against one of the worst defenses in the league. He is a top-ten option this week.

7Derrick HenryIND17.1
8Chase EdmondsBUF16.5
9Josh JacobsDEN15.9
10Mike DavisTB15.5

Aaron Jones is the top option on the board. He got some game time this past week against the 49ers but coming off the calf injury they didn’t need him that much after the Packers had the game in hand. The Jaguars are allowing 28.1 PPR points per game to running backs this season and this is a strong spot for a big week. On the other side of this game, we can still target this Packers run defense. They are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game. James Robinson has been fantastic and has scored 72.9 PPR points over the past four games. Both backs are in great spots.

Chase Edmonds had nearly 30 touches this week against Miami. If Kenyan Drake is out again, you can certainly look his way again despite the lackluster week. The volume is still what we are after and the Bills run defense is very questionable. They are allowing over 100 rushing yards a game solely to running backs. Mike Davis would be back in action this week if McCaffrey doesn’t play. That seems to be the case as he is listed as doubtful. That means Davis will jump right back into a strong PPR role. This was someone who produced at a top-ten level when McCaffrey was out. Miles Sanders jumps into action this week and gets a plus matchup against the Giants who have allowed 25.4 PPR points per game to running backs.

7Robert WoodsSEA15.9
8Will Fuller@CLE15.8
9Stefon Diggs@ARI15.6
10Terry McLaurin@DET15.5

Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp are in a spot where many wide receivers have succeeded this season. Seattle are allowing a whopping 59.8 PPR points per game to receivers this season. Woods and Kupp have had up and down games and haven’t had that monster week as a combo. Seattle faces a Rams defense that has limited wide receivers but hard to see them doing that this week. DK Metcalf has dominated some very good secondaries and corners this season and this will be another one with Jalen Ramsey. This certainly can be that. Keenan Allen has the 8th most fantasy points per game over the last four games, and the Dolphins, once again not a bad defense, but are allowing the 10th most fantasy points to receivers this season.

John Brown and Stefon Diggs both are strong options this week, although Diggs will have some Patrick Peterson to deal with. Cardinals have been struggling with wide receivers, allowing the 5th most fantasy points per the last five weeks. Diggs and Brown both are coming off strong games, even without finding the end zone. Davante Adams will continue to roll this week against the Jaguars, who are allowing the 9th most PPR points per game. Will Fuller is a strong option this week against a leaky Browns secondary. They are getting healthier but this will be a tough spot for them to slow down both Cooks and Fuller.

8Jordan Reed@NO12.1
9Mark Andrews@NE11.6
10Mike GesickiLAC11.2

This is not a good position this week with Travis Kelce on bye and George Kittle dealing with a long term injury. Darren Waller has been solid and is currently TE2 in PPR leagues, but hasn’t had those big yardage games. Neither has anybody else. We are seeing a lot of middling names right now and the overall weekly numbers have been hit or miss. Dallas Goedert returned against Dallas for one target and don’t write him off over the second half of the season. He is a strong play this week against the Giants and Goedert will be a key man for this Philadelphia offense. Austin Hooper is also returning this week and he was someone who was really clicking before he sat out the three weeks due to an illness and bye. He faces the Texans who are allowing 14.5 PPR points per game to tight ends.

Noah Fant dodged an injury this past week but did miss some time against Atlanta, Fant has been solid when healthy, but durability remains an issue. Jordan Reed is filling in for Kittle and has a strong matchup against the Saints, who have allowed the 8th most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Mike Gesicki saw a bit more run last week and the Dolphins are down two wide receivers after trading Ford and Williams leaving last week. The Chargers have allowed a 40-396-6 line to tight ends.

9Chris BoswellCIN9.0
10Mason CrosbyJAX9.9

It is the usual suspects here as Justin Tucker kicks us off. Tucker is a top-ten kicker this season, averaging 8.9 fantasy points per game. He gets a solid matchup against the Patriots who have allowed the 10th most fantasy points per game to kickers this season. Mason Crosby is in a high upside spot but the Packers drives will need to stall out a few times so he can get a few attempts on. Wil Lutz continues to be one of the top options on the board and the 49ers have allowed the 11th most fantasy points per game to kickers on the year. Ryan Succop has a good matchup this week. The Panthers have allowed 19 field goal attempts in nine games this season.

Week 10 Defense Rankings

Week 10 RankingsTeamOpponentWeek 10 Projection

Philadelphia EaglesWhile the Steelers had a lackluster game against the Cowboys, they are still a top-three scoring defense this season and face a Bengals team that has allowed the 6th most fantasy points per game to defenses. The Ravens have played well with 24 sacks and 14 turnovers this season. We continue to watch a bad Patriots offense play week in and week out and this is going to be a tough one as Baltimore is getting a few bodies back. There are some good streaming options this week with the Eagles facing the Giants. Philadelphia has scored the 5th most fantasy points this season and the Giants are allowing the 7th most fantasy points per game.
