Fantasy Corner

Who to Start:

  • Kirk Cousins, QB (WSH): Cousins has performed particularly better at home than on the road. Since week three, Cousins has averaged 30 points at home compared to just 12.2 points on the road. His week 10 matchup? A contest against the poor Saints defense at FedEx Field.
  • Todd Gurley, RB (STL): The rookie phenomenon is in the top-10 at the running back position despite seeing major action in just five games thus far. Over those five games, he’s recorded 655 rushing yards and four touchdowns, and there’s no reason he should slow down against Chicago.
  • Michael Crabtree, WR (OAK): The veteran wideout has regained his life in Oakland, and Derek Carr has no trouble finding Crabtree as his number two receiver. With 20 receptions and four touchdowns over the past three weeks, you should be riding Crabtree while he stays hot.
  • Richard Rodgers, TE (GB): Rodgers has performed consistently throughout this season as Green Bay’s biggest target at tight end, but he managed to find the end zone twice last week. If you need to pull someone off the waiver wire, Rodgers may be a good sleeper for this week against Detroit.


Who to Bench:

  • Peyton Manning, QB (DEN): This obviously hasn’t been a great season for Peyton, but he’s started to put things together the past few weeks. Still, he should be on the bench versus Kansas City, as he has reached 20 fantasy points just once this season and the Chiefs have allowed just 57 points in their past four games.
  • C.J. Anderson, RB (DEN): Here’s another first round running back who hasn’t come near his preseason prediction. Anderson has already been passed on the depth chart by Ronnie Hillman, and as he has reached 50 rushing yards just once this season, I don’t see him reaching double digit carries this week.
  • Jeremy Maclin, WR (KC): We all know how talented Kansas City’s defense is, but Denver’s has been even better this year. Maclin will have a tough time against Chris Harris, Jr., and the Broncos defense has allowed just 120.6 yards to receivers this season. It’s safe to keep Maclin benched.
  • Zach Ertz, TE (PHI): Ertz’s performance has been very similar to the play of Rodgers, but Ertz had much bigger expectations this season. He’s scored between six and nine points over the past four games thanks to 19 short-range receptions, but if you have another option with higher upside, it may be time to make the switch.
