NFL Week 10 Fantasy Notes

NOTE: Our advice, as it does on our FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER weekly program (Thursdays, 9-11 PM EDT on, is based on helping you determine which of your marginal starters are worth a play this week. Hopefully, your initial draft/auction efforts were successful, because frankly, “playing the matchups” is far from an exact science regardless of what you will be told by other advisory services claiming to possess a crystal ball. But our weekly game notes are designed to try to help you maximize the potential of your situation. We will post this preface to the notes every week to remind you of the context of our advice.

Week 10

Sunday, Nov. 11
Atlanta at Carolina 1:00 pm Stay with WR Smith, even though he faces longer odds on production right now than any other superstar at his position -- you'll hate yourself if he breaks a big one, as he could any time he touches the ball. Don't jump on the Dunn/White bandwagon in the A-T-L just yet.
Buffalo at Miami 1:00 pm WR Evans is the only marginal player to merit a look here.
Cleveland at Pittsburgh 1:00 pm RB Lewis is the only exception to the "all-in" recommendation in a game that should be a now-patented Cleveland shootout.
Denver at Kansas City 1:00 pm Against a horrible run defense, Holmes actually merits a start (what is this, 2002?) if Johnson can't go. Beware of anybody in the passing game on either side, aside of course from Gonzalez.
Jacksonville at Tennessee 1:00 pm The Jag passing game was good against New Orleans -- big aberration -- and the defense was horrible -- another big aberration. As such, no marginal starters recommended here.
Minnesota at Green Bay 1:00 pm Jennings is approaching every-week status. The Minnesota passing game & Green Bay running game remain radioactive.
Philadelphia at Washington 1:00 pm With the Skins figuring to play a conservative style and the Eagle passing game in flux, we don't recommend any marginal starters here.
St. Louis at New Orleans 1:00 pm No marginal plays recommended here (except WR Patten), including RB Leonard if Jackson can't go -- the Saint run D has been surprisingly stout.
Cincinnati at Baltimore 4:05 pm A short week for the struggling Raven O and injuries to a Bengal offense facing a still-potent Raven D (notwithstanding Monday Night!) spells no marginal starters here.
Chicago at Oakland 4:15 pm
Benson finally breaks out against a surprisingly poor Oakland run D. Stay away from anyone in either passing game.
Dallas at N.Y. Giants 4:15 pm All-in!
Detroit at Arizona 4:15 pm Based on their play and the red-hot Lions' roll, the Cards should be playing from behind & chucking it a lot. All-in on both sides!
Indianapolis at San Diego 8:15 pm With both teams coming off emotional losses, an all-in shootout looms.

Monday, Nov. 12
San Francisco at Seattle, 8:30 pm If you've mistakenly hedged on TE Davis yet, don't do it again here. Morris, Branch and Jackson should step up as well.

Bye: Houston, New England, N.Y. Jets, Tampa Bay
