For Week 10, the injury report is back to being a long one, much to the chagrin of fantasy owners. Several players have been ruled out already; but as always some of the questionable players are legitimately questionable and some are likely going to play.
Thankfully, the weeks with six teams on bye are over for this fantasy season. Week 10 does have four teams on bye, but it seems like fantasy owners can breathe a little easier only benching players from the Oakland Raiders, Indianapolis Colts, Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills.
The last of the big bye weeks are over with as we enter Week 11 of the fantasy football season. There are still teams that have yet to get a breather (four this week), but from here out the player pool will be larger than it has the past two weeks, which is a good thing for fantasy owners.
After a week off, Tom Brady is back as the No. 1 fantasy quarterback for Week 10. He faces Seattle, which is coming off of a short week, and the Seahawks have done a good job against QBs (fifth-fewest fantasy points allowed).
San Francisco has scored more than 20 points four times so far this year, which is why the 49ers have been a popular target when it comes to choosing a defense/special teams (DST) option in fantasy. They have allowed opposing DSTs to score plenty of fantasy points (fifth most in the league), and this week’s opponent is Arizona.
Justin Tucker and Caleb Sturgis, both with eight games played, are in the top five in terms of fantasy points (depending on league scoring) among kickers. Tucker still has yet to miss a field goal or an extra point, and he is the top-ranked kicker for Week 10.
Wide receiver mania is back for Week 10 of the fantasy football season. All of the big dawgs are back in action (with a few exceptions) and once again many have drawn dream matchups. Antonio Brown sits atop with another week of what is hopefully a healthier, rust-shaken Ben Roethlisberger.
