Week 10 Risers and Fallers
Ben Roethlisberger will go against a Cincinnati defense at home, and that is a recipe for success for the 38-year-old. As good as the Steelers defense is, the Bengals have proven under Joe Burrow that they can rack up a lot of yards through the air. The Steelers will almost assuredly throw the ball early and often to stay ahead. That’s good news for Roethlisberger and company. He comes in as the QB8 on the week. Drew Lock has reeled off two consecutive top 10 finishes. He has a strong chance of repeating that against a bad Las Vegas defense. As long as the Broncos continue struggling to run the ball, Lock should rack up pass yards.
Falling in the Week 10 PPR rankings is Matthew Stafford, who just isn’t the same quarterback without Kenny Golladay. Golladay isn’t likely to play for the second week in a row, and we shouldn’t expect much from the Lions quarterback.
Aaron Jones comes in as the RB1 on the week. We haven’t seen a blow-up game from the super talented back in some time now, and I believe we will get that this week against Jacksonville. James Robinson gets a juicy matchup against the Packers, and he even had an argument to be the overall RB1 on the week. Settling for a more safe ranking, Robinson comes in as the RB4.
Christian McCaffrey picked up another injury, this time to his shoulder. While he comes in at RB8, it is unknown if he will play. If McCaffrey suits up, he is my locked-in RB1. If he doesn’t suit up, Mike Davis receives a slight bump up closer to RB1 territory.
Making a significant jump is the Rams tandem of Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. The last time we saw them, they both produced excellent results, as Kupp was targeted an insane 20 times, and Woods was the WR3 overall on the week. In the Week 10 PPR rankings, Woods comes in at the WR4, and Kupp comes in as the WR11. The Texans also have a duo that have arguments for being WR1 on the week. Will Fuller and Brandin Cooks have reeled off huge week after huge week the past few games, and they go against a bad Cleveland secondary. Fuller is all the way up to the WR7, and Cooks comes in as the WR15.
Dropping is a pair of NFC South foes. Mike Evans continues to flirt with WR3 territory, as he is potentially turning into the third or fourth option on his own team. D.J. Moore has potentially been passed by Curtis Samuel in terms of target volume, a crushing blow to his value. The Panthers seem to only want to use him as a deep threat, and Teddy Bridgewater simply does not enjoy throwing the ball deep.
Without Travis Kelce (on bye) and George Kittle (injured), this position just continues to get harder to look at. Darren Waller becomes the TE1 on the week, and he can thank his large target volume. He has been extremely inefficient the past two weeks, averaging only five yards a catch. But nonetheless, he is all but guaranteed to receive the most targets at the position. T.J. Hockenson has been a bright spot at the position, and he looks to be fully implemented in the offense after receiving 18 targets the past two weeks. He is the TE2 on the week, and was strongly considered as the TE1.
Mark Andrews continues his decent, as he has been one of the more disappointing high round draft picks. With Lamar Jackson struggling through the air, Andrews is honestly ranked too high still. But due to his upside, we have to keep him in TE1 territory.
