You’ve got to make sure you tap in with us every week! If you have been, you’d already have stashed Keaton Mitchell on your bench from our Week 8 article! Last week he broke out with 138 yards and a TD. Mitchell has real De’Von Achane vibes if you ask me. As we near the end of the fantasy season, these last few weeks are your last chance for depth before the playoffs. Let’s get into our Week 10 running back sleepers and streamers!
Week 10 Running Back Sleepers and Streamers
Running Back Sleepers
Ty Chandler, Minnesota Vikings, ~1% owned
If I rated my suggestions out of five stars, I’d give this recommendation one star. Not because Chandler is bad, but because he’s got a rough matchup this week against a Saints defense that has been solid vs. the run lately. The thesis behind this one is that Cam Akers is now out for the season, moving Chandler up to the second string behind Mattison. With Justin Jefferson set to return within the next few weeks, Josh Dobbs and the passing attack are more likely to start getting some positive game scripts for the running game. Chandler will get plenty of touches in tandem with Mattison who struggled at the beginning of the year, but is now playing well. Chandler becomes a five star suggestion if anything happens to Mattison.
2023 Week 10 RB Streamers
Rico Dowdle, Dallas Cowboys, ~4% owned
Tony Pollard, the Cowboys first-string running back, was absolutely stuffed vs. the Eagles last week. That was to be expected, though. The Eagles do that to almost every rushing attack. You know who’s not going to stuff Tony Pollard this week? The New York Giants. The Giants just allowed the Raiders (the team that fired a coach mid-season) to beat them 27-0. The Cowboys are a much better team and I expect them to win handily, now that Daniel Jones is out for the season. That means garbage time touches for Dowdle, in addition to his touches to spell Pollard. I’m expecting a double-digit fantasy output for Dowdle this week.
Jaleel McLaughlin, Denver Broncos, ~26% owned
He’s behind Williams on the depth chart, but he’s ahead of Perine. All he needs is one touch and he has the ability to score a touchdown. The man is electric. In his last three games, he’s averaging 4,9, and 8 yards per carry. He’s also had at least two targets in each of his last three games. The matchup isn’t great against the Bills this week, but there’s a reason he’s getting so many touches as a backup. He’s too good not to. Get him on your bench ASAP. Start him if you must, he’ll be serviceable.
