Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

Congratulations to all fantasy owners who have Dalvin Cook on their rosters!

If that applies to you, then you probably don’t need to keep reading this piece because you can single-handedly win your Week 10 matchup just with Cook alone. If it doesn’t apply, however, then you might actually have to manage your roster and make some tough decisions. Oh yeah, and also pray that you don’t have to play against Cook this week… or any other week!

Let’s take a look at the best players at each position heading into the Week 10 matchups, as well as potential sleepers and players you should either start or sit.

3. Packers (vs. JAX)
4. Saints (vs. SF)
5. Giants (vs. PHI)

Sleepers

JK Dobbins, RB, BAL (@ NE) – Dobbins has outperformed Gus Edwards while splitting time in replace of Mark Ingram, who is still sidelined by an ankle injury. The former Ohio State standout should be rewarded with plenty of touches against a vulnerable New England defense.

JD McKissic, RB, WAS (@ DET) – McKissic is a good flex option in PPR leagues… but in PPR leagues only. He has been targeted at least six times in five of the last six games, including 14 last week. Those resulted in nine catches, and more of the same will continue with Alex Smith under center.

Allen Lazard, WR, GB (vs. JAX) – Fantasy owners may have forgotten about Lazard, who has been out since Week 3. But he should be back this weekend to face a Jacksonville defense that Aaron Rodgers will carve up. Through three games, Lazard had 13 receptions for 254 yards and two scores. (DraftKings DFS salary: $9,900)

Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

Start ‘Em

Tom Brady, QB, TB (@ CAR) – We have seen time and time again that when Brady is down, it only lights a fire under him. Following losses this season, the 43-year-old is averaging 289 passing yards with seven touchdowns and one interception. Watch out, Carolina! (DraftKings DFS salary: $16,200)

Chase Edmonds, RB, ARI (vs. BUF) – Now the undisputed RB1 in Arizona, Edmonds got an eye-popping 25 carries last weekend. He also has 10 catches for 105 yards in the past two contests. Now he faces a disappointing Bills defense that yields 125.9 rushing yards per game. (DraftKings DFS salary: $11,700)

D.J. Chark Jr., WR, JAX (@ GB) – The third-year receiver out of LSU has been targeted 33 times in the past three weeks. More importantly, he turned his opportunities into 146 yards and a TD against Houston last Sunday. You can be sure the Jags will be passing the ball a bunch against Green Bay. (DraftKings DFS salary: $12,300)

Sit ‘Em

Carson Wentz, QB, PHI (@ NYG) – The Wentz bandwagon should be clearing out. He has already thrown 12 interceptions in 2020 and this really isn’t a favorable matchup for him. The Giants’ passing defense is decent and they are tied for eighth in the NFL with 22 sacks.

Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz of the Philadelphia Eagles

Melvin Gordon III, RB, DEN (@ LV) – Gordon shares carries in Denver’s backfield with Philip Lindsay, so that is already a red flag right off the bat. In the last two games, he has 46 rushing yards and no TDs. Gordon can’t make up for that even if he has decent receiving numbers.

Chase Claypool, WR, PIT (vs. CIN) – Ben Roethlisberger is banged up and also on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Needless to say, the veteran QB’s status is in jeopardy for this week. Even with Big Ben, Claypool is averaging just 36.3 receiving yards over the past three games.
