Week 10 DraftKings: Stacks, Picks and Projections
Hopefully, you guys made some money last week from some of my suggestions, like the Brissett-Hilton stack, Alvin Kamara and the Goff-Watkins stack. Week 10 presents us with great matchups for stars of DFS like A.J. Green, Le’Veon Bell, Todd Gurley, Leonard Fournette and LeSean McCoy. That being said, this week’s advice focuses mostly on the bargains that will help you win. Let’s get to the picks.
Stacks That I Like
Matthew Stafford and Golden Tate
Stafford is coming off arguably his best performance of the year, having thrown the ball for 361 yards and 2 touchdowns. This week he faces a vulnerable Browns defense that has been in the bottom half versus WR’s and QB’s. Tate is a PPR monster ready to explode this game.
Jared Goff and Cooper Kupp
Goff has been nothing short of great this season and enters this matchup as the second hottest QB in football, Wentz being the first. He’s a good bet to torch the Texans defense this week at home. Kupp should be lining up against the struggling Kareem Jackson this week. The only thing that I am worried about in this game is the Rams getting ahead and then leaning on the running game. I also love Todd Gurley this week for this reason.
Josh McCown and Robby Anderson
Perhaps the most underrated stack coming into Week 10, this duo has scored over 30 points in four straight weeks. They get the Bucs defense this week, a matchup that is beneficial to the entire Jets offense.
QB’s that I like
RB’s that I like
Howard has been doing some serious damage as of late. Over the last six weeks, he has been held to under 75 yards only twice and has had two 140 yd+ games. The touchdown drought is a bit of a concern, but expect that to end today.
Projection: 85yd 1td
Darkwa has officially taken the starting job from Gallman Jr. He’s been the far more effective back and is going head to head with a team that allowed the new AP to look like old AP. The Giants will look to establish their running game early, and, for once, should actually succeed in doing so.
Projection: 78yd 1td
WR’s that I like
As of late, he’s been the only noteworthy Falcons offensive player. With Julio likely to play, expect a lot of double coverage on Julio and 10 plus targets for Sanu.
Projection: 8 rec 88yd
Although Thomas just scored his first TD in 13 games, he has gotten 43 balls thrown his way over the last four weeks, and he doesn’t need touchdowns to thrive. Even without the touchdown last week, he still would have scored 15 DK points. He gets the Patriots at home, and while the QB play in Denver has been horrendous, DT will get his fair share of balls thrown his way in a juicy matchup.
7 rec 95 yd
TE’s that I like
For those of you who are on the O.J. Howard train, get off at the next stop. Howard was held to -0.9 pts last week, reestablishing Brate as the go-to guy. The Jets have allowed 45+ yds to a tight end in 7 of 9 games this season. Look for Brate to do some damage this week even without Winston.
Projection 6 rec 55 yd 1td
Coming off of a 15.7 point DK week, Rudolph gets a great matchup this week. With Norman expected to drape all over Diggs, Rudolph could get a good amount of targets this game. Also, this game looks like a relatively high scoring game on paper, which is obviously good for Rudolph’s production.
Projection: 6 rec 62 yd
DST’s That I like
The Browns will have a ton of trouble moving the ball against this motivated defensive unit. The Lions are at home this week as well, which in many cases, has a profound effect on defensive play.
Projection 13 pts
There’s one other sleeper that I LOVE this week. If you want to find out who it is, make sure to head over to my blog: fancavelive.com to find out!
