Week 10 Fantasy Football Roundup | Sharapova's Thigh

LT should blow up against the Chiefs on Sunday.

Thursday games starting this week with the Broncos-Browns, so I got the week 10 roundup going earlier than past weeks. With that being said, plenty of websites haven't put up week 10 material yet, and I'll be sure to add any good links as I come across them. E-mail me at sharapovasthigh@gmail.com if you have some fantasy football rankings, projections, or just a good article that I should link.


Week 10's Best...

QB: Kurt Warner.
At least 2 TD passes in every game since week 2, and threw for 382 in week 8, followed by 341 in week 9. Now he gets to face a bad 49ers defense.
RB: LaDainian Tomlinson. Against the league's worst run defense at home . Anything under a 20 point performance from him this week would be a big disappointment.
WR: Anquan Boldin. TD's in his last 5 starts, and the red-hot Warner will continue to go his way. Boldin's averaging 7 catches per game.
TE: Antonio Gates. Had a great game against New Orleans in week 9 as expected, with 6 catches for 96 yards and a TD. His success will continue against a bad Kansas City team at home, in an absolute must-win game for the Chargers.
K: Jason Elam. The Falcons offense has been a huge surprise, but there's no doubting them anymore with Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, and Roddy White on that side of the ball. They'll move the ball well at New Orleans and Elam should get some FG opportunities, extra points at least.
D/ST: Jacksonville Jaguars. An underachieving defense that knows they have to come up big this week as the Jaguars need a win to keep any sort of playoff hopes alive, and it shouldn't be too difficult against Daunte Culpepper and the Lions.

Sleeper Picks...


QB: Brady Quinn. Yeah, it's his first career start, but it seems that any QB is a great play against the Broncos defense right now. No Champ Bailey, no DJ Williams, and they were struggling mightily when those guys were playing anyway.
RB: Ryan Torain. Michael Pittman and Andre Hall are out for the season, and Selvin Young is questionable. Even if Young plays, it's unlikely he's 100% by tomorrow, so the talented rookie Torain will get plenty of carries regardless.
WR: Jerry Porter. With Matt Jones' 3-game suspension looming, the Jaguars want to get Jerry Porter involved in the offense. He had 2 catches for 38 yards last week, and facing the Lions would be a great chance to get him going.
TE: Robert Royal. The Bills veteran tight end is quietly having the best season of his career. He's 1 catch away from tying his career-high of 25 in a season. 11 catches for 149 yards in the last 3 games.
K: Dan Carpenter. Miami's kicker has 4 FG attempts each of the last 2 games, and Miami will be able to get into scoring position quite a bit at home versus Seattle.
D/ST: Miami Dolphins. 13 and 14 fantasy points in their last 2 games, against very good offenses in Buffalo and Denver. Now they take on the 31st ranked Seattle offense at home.

Shit Picks...


QB: Matt Cassel. The Patriots QB is doing a fine job, much better than anybody expected. However, he's only gotten at least 10 fantasy points 4 times in 8 games, and he'll be going up against a solid Buffalo pass defense.
RB: Steve Slaton. He should still get you 8-10 fantasy points just because he'll get the touches, but don't expect the rookie out of West Virginia to have much success against the Ravens defense. There's about 20 running backs I'd go with ahead of him this week.
WR: DeSean Jackson. He hasn't had at least 10 fantasy points since week 4. Going up against the Giants defense shouldn't change that.
TE: John Carlson. A talented rookie tight end, but Seneca Wallace is at quarterback, and Carlson's not getting as many receptions as a result. Wait until Matt Hasselbeck comes back next week.
K: Kris Brown. 2 reasons: He sucked last week as my sleeper pick, and his Texans shouldn't get many scoring opportunities against the Ravens this week.
D/ST: New York Giants. Nope, I didn't accidentally put the Giants instead of the Jets. The Eagles offense should be able to put up some points on this terrific defense. McNabb's a smart quarterback and won't allow the Giants' pass rush to cause as much trouble for him as it does for most of the QB's in the league.


My Week 9 Picks(scoring based off ESPN standard leagues)...

Best: Kurt Warner(21 Points), Matt Forte(12 Points), Andre Johnson(12 Points), Dallas Clark(6 Points), Stephen Gostkowski(9 Points), Chicago Bears(8 Points).

Sleepers: Matt Ryan(14 Points), Fred Taylor(1 Point), Greg Camarillo(11 Points), Desmond Clark(3 Points), Kris Brown(3 Points), Buffalo Bills(7 Points).

Shit: Jason Campbell(4 Points), Cedric Benson(16 Points), Roy Williams(2 Points), Donald Lee(2 Points), Nick Folk(2 Points), Green Bay Packers(2 Points).

UPDATE(11/6/08): Added a few more links and will continue to do so. Willie Parker is out this weekend, so make sure to pick up Mewelde Moore if he's available in your league.

UPDATE(11/7/08): More injury updates, really no good news besides Roethlisberger and Lloyd.
