With four or five weeks to go in the regular season, Week 10 is do or die for almost every single fantasy team. Here are some players who you should consider starting or sitting this week:
Nick Foles (vs.Green Bay): The Philadelphia Eagles will be in this game with Aaron Rodgers out at QB. Foles should be able to throw for a couple scores, especially against a mediocre pass defense that the Packers have.
C.J. Spiller/Fred Jackson (vs. Pittsburgh): Pittsburgh is one of the worst teams in the league against the run and both Spiller and Jackson are healthy enough to both factor into a big night.
Keenan Allen (vs. Denver): Another shootout for the Chargers in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos. Allen will benefit from the weak defense the Broncos have in the secondary.
Garrett Graham (vs. Arizona): Arizona has allowed the most yards and touchdowns to TEs this season. So, expect Graham to end his scoring drought in a big way even with Keenum throwing the ball.
Mike Nugent (vs. Baltimore): It is going to be tough to get in the endzone against the Ravens on the road for the Bengals. Nugent will provide almost all of the offense for Cincinnati in Week 10.
Tennessee DEF (vs. Jacksonville): The Jaguars have one of the worst offenses in the NFL and the Titans defense should step up and force multiple turnovers in this matchup.
Terrelle Pryor (vs. New York Giants): Pryor will need to find a way to run for a lot of yards to be considered a good play in Week 10. The Giants have improved against the pass in recent weeks and it might be a long day for Pryor.
DeAngelo Williams (vs. San Francisco): With the return of Jonathan Stewart last week, the Carolina Panthers are now packed at the running back position. Williams, Stewart, Mike Tolbert and Newton all need carries and it is not enough to make any of them fantasy worthy at running back.
Harry Douglas (vs. Seattle): With Roddy White expected to play, Douglas will return to the No. 2 spot at WR. Seattle’s defense struggled the last two weeks, but it should be able to blanket Douglas enough to keep him from a huge game.
Heath Miller (vs. Buffalo): Ben Roethlisberger may be looking good after his 400-yard performance against the New England Patriots on Sunday, but Miller was almost nonexistent. Plus, Buffalo has allowed only six points per game for tight ends.
Matt Bryant (vs. Seattle): Bryant has only had multiple field goal attempts just once since Week 4 and the Seahawks should be able to keep the Falcons from moving close enough down the field to even try for a field goal more than once.
New Orleans DEF (vs. Dallas): The Dallas Cowboys will be able to run and pass easily on this Saints defense. This game will be a shootout with neither team playing much defense.
