ACC 2014 Week 10 Preview and Predictions

The ACC’s Week 10 slate isn’t filled with top 25 matchups, but there’s plenty of intrigue in games that should help determine which team wins the Coastal Division in 2014. Miami took a step forward in the division with a win over Virginia Tech last Thursday, and Georgia Tech stayed alive by beating a turnover-prone Pittsburgh team on Saturday.

“Two weeks until Ohio State-Michigan State” may as well be the theme for this Saturday in the Big Ten.

 

A nice way to put this week would be to call it a table-setting Saturday. Northwestern and Iowa meet in an important game to set the table for a Wildcats’ bowl bid or the Hawkeyes’ hopes for a division title.

 

Melvin Gordon and Ameer Abdullah have a chance to rack up huge numbers to further their Heisman campaigns. And the Buckeyes are looking to pick up one more win before a critical matchup against the Spartans.

Points will probably be aplenty in New England, but Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 9 gives top billing to a guy who will be toiling in the Steel City on Sunday night. Justin Tucker, who nailed a 50- and 53-yard field goal last week, checks in at No. 1 on this week’s list because Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh matchups usually go down to the wire and touchdowns are sometimes scarce.

Not to pick on Jacksonville, but there’s a reason its opponent leads off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 9. To put it simply, the Jaguars are allowing an average of 17 fantasy points per game (Athlon scoring) to opposing DSTs. Last week alone, Miami returned two Blake Bortles interceptions for touchdowns. This week’s lucky DST is Cincinnati, which has rebounded somewhat after some disappointing showings.

Of course, the emphasis is on the names at the top, which starts with Peyton Manning. The reigning MVP will go head-to-head with Tom Brady for the 16th time this Sunday.
