NFL Week 10 DFS Lineup Strategy
With Washington’s offense clicking, bank on Sam Howell to lead your DFS lineup in Week 10, while superstars Chrstian McCaffrey and Amon-Ra St. Brown will continue their elite seasons post bye week.
QB Sam Howell (WAS) Salary: $5,900
A beneficiary of Eric Bienemy’s arrival, Howell has been a reliable option this season for fantasy owners and DFS players. He’s scored 15 total touchdowns while throwing for 299 yards or more four times thus far.
With Seattle allowing the most yards, completions, and attempts per game through the air, expect Sam to record his third straight 300-yard performance while this game should be a back-and-forth battle between two teams fighting for a spot in the postseason.
RB Christian McCaffrey (SF) Salary: $9,200
Our X-factor for the week is Run CMC. McCaffrey is coming off a bye and we are banking on Shanahan tearing apart this Jaguars defense with some added film study.
While their rush defense has looked solid this season, McCaffrey is matchup proof, as he’s scored in every contest and should reach the 1,000-yard mark during this game. With Brock Purdy slowly regaining his confidence after a few rough starts, Christian should be the game plan for San Francisco.
RB Tyler Allgeier (ATL) Salary: $4,700
While Bijan Robinson is the more talented option, it has become clear that Arthur Smith likes Tyler Allgeier as the team’s goal-line back. Tyler has 8+ touches in each game this season while scoring his 3rd touchdown last week.
With the Cardinals' defense slowly falling apart this season, Allgeier should see 13+ carries and a few goal-line touches as Atlanta should be milking a slight 4th-quarter lead.
With a positive game script and goal-line looks, Allgeier is a must-play at a smaller salary.
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (DET) Salary: $8,300
Five 100-yard games, 3 touchdowns, and a few Dan Campbell speeches later, Amon-Ra St. Brown is our WR1 for the week. The Chargers allow the 3rd most FPPG to wideouts, including two 100-yard games.
Expect the Lions WR1 to have no issue hitting this mark post-bye week, as Detroit looks to retain their lead in the NFC North.
WR Josh Reynolds (DET) Salary: $3,800
With the continuous struggle from Lions 2nd year wideout Jameson Williams, Josh Reynolds is a sleeper pick this week against the Chargers who are horrendous against the WR position.
Although he hasn’t produced a ton of positive output this season, Josh sees 70-80% of the snap share and is a solid red zone option for Goff if St. Brown and LaPorta are both covered. With added value as a deep play threat, bank on Reynolds to have a bounce-back week.
WR Jamison Crowder (WAS) Salary: $3,400
Newly acquired Jamison Crowder is the sleeper pick of the week for our DFS lineup. After a solid 95-yard outing with a score in Week 8, Crowder saw an uptick in snaps last week in New England.
With Curtis Samuel’s lingering injury, Crowder becomes an elite slot option with the Seattle Seahawks defense allowing a league-high 2.7 TDs and 327 yards per game to wide receivers.
TE Dalton Schultz (HOU) Salary: $4,900
C.J. Stroud and the Texans offense is officially a safe play in DFS lineups and prop plays. The veteran tight end Dalton Schultz is just one beneficiary of the rejuvenated offense.
Dalton has seen 7+ targets four times this campaign and has scored four TDs in the past five outings. With the Bengals sitting in the bottom half of the league in regards to defending the TE position, Dalton is a top play at the position this week.
FLX Terry McLaurin (WAS) Salary: $5,800
Sticking with this Washington offense, Terry McLaurin brings consistency with boom potential in Week 10. Scoring only two touchdowns so far, Terry has hit the 5 reception mark in all but two games and facing this subpar Seattle defense, could have the best game of his season.
With Sam Howell getting more comfortable and confident each week, expect the connection with McLaurin to keep growing.
DST: Ravens Salary: $4,000
With this 2023 Ravens defense becoming comparable to the early 2000s Ravens' defense, they are a must-play against the Browns this week.
Cleveland, no matter who is quarterbacking, has had issues protecting the ball and scoring points against top-tier defenses. As this game is bound to get physical, we like the Ravens' defense to tower over the Browns' inconsistent offense.
