FanDuel Fantasy Football: Week 10 Value Plays
FanDuel Fantasy Football: Week 10 Value Plays

This article is part of our FanDuel Fantasy Football series.

QUARTERBACK

Ryan Fitzpatrick, TB vs WAS ($7,600): Throwing out a disaster of game in a tough matchup in Chicago, Fitzpatrick has scored at least 26.04 fantasy points in all four of his other starts this season. He was even able to score 19.56 fantasy points playing only a half in their loss to the Bengals. The matchup against Washington at home this week is a good one, with the Redskins giving up the 10th most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Washington should be able to score against a suspect Buccaneers defense putting Alex Smith ($7,600) in play for GPPs.

RUNNING BACK

Mike Davis, SEA at LAR ($5,800): Davis should be the Seahawks lead running back this season, with Chris Carson unlikely to suit up due to an injury. Davis had 14.2 fantasy points last week in relief of Carson and that was without scoring a touchdown. In his other game as the "featured" back, Davis scored twice on his way to 26.4 fantasy points against Arizona Week 3. Note that at as of Thursday, Carson hasn't been ruled out but hasn't practiced yet this week either.

David Johnson, ARI at KC ($6,900): This is a cheap price for Johnson, who has had an extra week of rest and should benefit from the switch to Byron Leftwich as the offensive coordinator. Johnson scored 12 fantasy points without scoring a touchdown in his first game with Leftwich calling the plays, and the Chiefs are an excellent matchup. On the season, Kansas City has given up the most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs (34.3), and it's likely Johnson gets plenty of touches with Arizona trying to keep the Chiefs offense off the field.

WIDE RECEIVER

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, GB vs. MIA ($5,400): This price seems way too low for a player coming into a good home matchup who has scored at least 11.5 fantasy points in four straight games. MVS has caught a pass of at least 40 yards in three straight games (40, 51 and 60 yards). It's likely the Dolphins put their top corner, Xavien Howard, on Davante Adams, leaving softer coverage for Valdes-Scantling to operate against. Valdes-Scantling (4.37-forty) should be able to haul in at least one long pass, and there probably isn't a defender on the Dolphins who can catch him.

Tyler Boyd, CIN vs. NO ($7,800): Some may balk here at the price, but there are a few reasons Boyd is a solid play Sunday. The Saints have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season (52.8!), and this game has the highest over/under this weekend (54) with only a 4.5-point spread (NO favored). Boyd already has some big games under his belt this season (18.1, 21.7, 22.7 and 24.1 fantasy points), and the absence of Adriel Jeremiah Green makes him the No.1 receiving target. Don't forget about teammate John Ross ($5,400) in GPPs.

TIGHT END

Jordan Reed, WAS at TB ($5,200): Reed has been quiet from a fantasy perspective lately and hasn't gotten to double-digit fantasy points since Week 1. The good news is his price has dropped drastically as a result, and, outside of Travis Kelce, there really aren't too many "safe" options to use this week. Tampa Bay is a great matchup for Reed as they've given up the second-most fantasy points per game of any team playing the main slate this week. With the Washington wide receivers hit hard by the injury bug, there's a legitimate argument Reed is their best receiving option now.

FLEX

Tarik Cohen, CHI vs. DET ($6,400): Cohen's bomb of a game last week (1.8 fantasy points) should have owners off him this week with recency bias in play. As a result, he comes at a reasonable price with what should be a low ownership percentage this week. The previous four weeks Cohen had been a beast, scoring 17.5, 18.3, 19.6 and 26.9 fantasy points, which shows the amount of upside he has. The Lions have allowed the eighth most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, making this a good matchup for both Cohen and Jordan Howard ($6,500 and four rushing touchdowns in his last three games).

DEFENSE

Green Bay D/ST vs. MIA, ($3,900): There's a lot of interesting options this week, but most of them are around $1,000 more expensive than the Packers. In their four home games this season, Green Bay has scored 7,7, 11 and 23 fantasy points showing their home-field advantage. Brock Osweiler should have trouble moving the ball on the road, and he hasn't thrown a touchdown pass in either of his last two games.
