Josh McCown, QB, New York Jets (34 p.c owned)
Each week, McCown is on this record. He has not less than two touchdowns in his final 5 video games. It’s not all the time fairly (on Thursday evening in Week 9, he solely threw for 140 yards). However, fantasy homeowners needing a quarterback as a result of their starter is on a bye or as a result of they misplaced Jameis Winston for Week 10, McCown is a viable choice. The Jets face Tampa Bay, who has given up the seventh-most factors to opposing quarterbacks.
Jacoby Brissett, QB, Indianapolis Colts (24 p.c owned)

The Steelers enable the third-fewest fantasy factors to opposing quarterbacks. While the matchup is hard, Brissett did throw for greater than 300 yards and two touchdowns in Week 9.

Damien Williams, RB, Miami Dolphins (33 p.c owned)

Williams had six receptions for 47 yards and a landing towards Oakland.

Both backs must be owned and can have RB2/three worth shifting ahead.
Danny Woodhead, RB, Baltimore Ravens (27 p.c owned)
Woodhead remains to be on injured reserve however he’s eligible to return in Week 11. Fantasy homeowners will probably be in search of him after subsequent week’s sport, so this is a chance to get a leg up on the competitors. He’s going to take over because the receiving again within the Ravens’ offense (which is dangerous information for Buck Allen). While he’s nonetheless injury-prone and in danger for a setback, Woodhead is value including in PPR leagues.
Rex Burkhead, RB, New England Patriots (eight p.c owned)
Before the Week 9 bye, Burkhead had seven receptions for 68 yards in Week eight. He’s slowly carving out a job as on pbading downs. With Chris Hogan probably lacking this week, Burkhead ought to see extra targets heading his method. It’s of venture to seize him when waivers run, however he’s somebody to control main as much as the weekend. If Hogan is out, Burkhead is a worthwhile RB3 in PPR codecs.
Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland Browns (35 p.c owned)
In deep leagues, Gordon is value a stash. He was simply reinstated by the NFL and is eligible to play in Week 13. If a group is mainly a positive factor for the playoffs, Gordon is value including.

Robert Woods, WR, Los Angeles Rams (34 p.c owned)
With not less than 4 receptions up to now 4 video games, Woods is a WR3 with upside as soon as once more for Week 10.

Hilton to have 175 yards and two touchdowns (and in Week eight allowed two Seattle receivers to every end with greater than 100 yards).
Dede Westbrook, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars (28 p.c owned)
Fantasy homeowners who had been hoping to have Westbrook for Week 9 missed out as he was not activated but. However, it’s probably that he might be lively for Week 10. The group needed him to get in additional follow time earlier than activating him. He is probably not a fantasy choice in his first week again if the Jaguars are going to restrict his snaps, however he ought to badist fantasy homeowners down the stretch.
Corey Coleman, WR, Cleveland Browns (12 p.c owned)
With nobody else actually main the pbading badault, Coleman is required again on the Browns offense. He is eligible to return following hand surgical procedure in Week 11. Now is the time to choose him up and stash him on the finish of the roster. He had 5 receptions for 53 yards and a landing in Week 1. While the Browns’ offense is not precisely on fireplace, Coleman will attempt to ignite that spark.
Curtis Samuel, WR, Carolina Panthers (9 p.c owned)
The Panthers traded away Kelvin Benjamin and are in want of somebody to step up within the pbading sport. Everyone has seen what Devin Funchess can do and the Panthers wish to see extra of Samuel. His receptions have gone up over the previous three weeks and the group is getting him extra concerned within the offense. While he is not a must-own or must-start, he’s value including in leagues that begin three WRs.
Greg Olsen, TE, Carolina Panthers (50 p.c owned)

Defense/Special Teams (DST)
Green Bay Packers (45 p.c owned)
The DST streamer of the week is the Packers, who face the Chicago Bears in Week 10. The Bears quit the sixth-most fantasy factors to opposing DSTs.

The Green Bay DST is not an amazing unit to start out, however for a Week 10 fill-in, it’s value taking a flyer on.
