Best Week 10 DFS QB
Raiders QB Derek Carr ($5,400)
Matchup: home vs. Broncos
There are a ton of great quarterback options this week with several matchups featuring over/under point totals set in the mid-50s. But if you are looking to save money at the position, considering playing Derek Carr of the Las Vegas Raiders.
At just $5,400, Carr is one of the cheapest quarterbacks in DFS in Week 10. Carr is averaging 19.2 fantasy points per game this season, but that number jumps to 22.5 in home games. With all of his receiving weapons back and a healthier offensive line, Carr should approach 300 passing yards and two or more touchdowns. The Broncos defense gives up the 12th-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, which makes this an excellent matchup for Carr.
Best Week 10 DFS RB
Packers RB Aaron Jones ($7,100)
Matchup: home vs. Jaguars
Despite being very questionable to play in Week 9 against the 49ers, Jones was active and productive. Green Bay gave him 20 touches and he totaled 79 yards. With 10 days off, look for Jones to be healthier this week and for the Packers to give him his usual workload. Against one of the league's worst run defenses, Jones should be in for a monster day on Sunday.
Look for him to easily hit 100 total yards and reach the end zone at least once. Jones is one of the highest-scoring running backs in DFS, but his price tag comes in far below the likes of Dalvin Cook and Alvin Kamara. For this week, Jones is an outstanding value and player that needs to be in your lineups.
Best Week 10 DFS WR
Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy ($5,600)
Matchup: at Raiders
Last week, Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy was our favorite flex play and that paid off. At only $4,700, Jeudy had a monster game in Week 9, catching seven passes for 125 yards and a score. That day could have been even bigger as he saw 14 targets and multiple passes in the red zone.
While his price has risen by nearly $1,000 in Week 10, he is still a screaming value again as he plays the Las Vegas Raiders. Jeudy will be facing a secondary that lost starting cornerback Travyon Mullen in Week 9 due to a hamstring injury. Even with Mullen on the field, this is a team that was shredded through the air by Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.
Look for Jeudy to see double-digit targets once again this week and potentially get in the end zone again. Jeudy is a strong WR2 this week at a very reasonable price.
Best Week 10 DFS TE
Eagles TE Dallas Goedert ($4,200)
Matchup: at Giants
Tight end options are limited this week as Travis Kelce and the Chiefs are on a bye and George Kittle is out for the season. Darren Waller is still a good option if you would want to stack him with Derek Carr, but he has been a little too inconsistent over the last month of the season.
So, in an effort to save money, consider playing Dallas Goedert of the Eagles. Zach Ertz is still out of the lineup and that means it's Goedert’s job for the next few weeks. Goedert did play in the team's Week 8 matchup against the Cowboys but caught just one pass for 15 yards.
With the bye week, he should be completely healthy entering Week 10 and should see a big workload. Don’t be surprised if Goedert leads the Eagles in targets and receptions against the Giants, and he is a good bet to reach the end zone at least once.
Best Week 10 DFS Flex Pick
Panthers WR D.J. Moore ($5,100)
Matchup: home vs. Buccaneers
D.J. Moore's inconsistent usage this season has been incredibly frustrating. He has only three games on the year with seven or more targets and saw just three on Sunday against the Chiefs. He's caught just 35 passes through nine games and has yet to receive a single carry in the run game. However, he is a strong flex play this week given his previous success against the Buccaneers.
Earlier this season, he caught eight passes for 120 yards against Tampa Bay. In five career games against the Bucs, he has totaled 408 yards from scrimmage. Without Christian McCaffrey in the lineup, the Panthers will need to rely on their wide receivers to move the ball on offense. Look for Moore to see close to double-digit targets in this game and potentially break off a few big receptions in a must-win divisional matchup for the Panthers.
