It was a 50/50 game, but the last few minutes of regulation gave me some hope. I’ll take my chances and try for overtime or a tie in what’s been one of the most frustrating seasons to date
The “fantasy football rankings” is a last. The article will provide you with the latest news and information on the topic.

ESPN’s Eric Moody
We’ll uncover fantasy football waiver-wire picks exclusively for those of you seeking for streaming alternatives in deeper formats each week of the NFL season (including IDP leagues). These are players that are available (or close to becoming available) in the majority of ESPN fantasy leagues and have attractive matchups in the week ahead, making them worthy of consideration for your lineups.
While there is some overlap with Field Yates’ Monday pickup column, a key difference is that the alternatives discussed in this column are entirely focused on this week’s game and not the players’ values for the rest of the season.
Editor’s note: On Fridays, the roster percentages are adjusted, and players from the Thursday night game are removed.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan takes on the Dallas Cowboys (51.9 percent rostered)
Only a few fantasy managers are enthralled with Ryan. He has averaging 19.7 fantasy points per game over the last seven outings. He can flourish without Calvin Ridley because he has other offensive playmakers like Kyle Pitts, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Russell Gage. The Dallas Cowboys have given up the seventh-most points per game to quarterbacks this season, so Ryan is expected to outperform that mark on Sunday, particularly after seeing Teddy Bridgewater’s performance against them last week in the same venue.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence faces the Indianapolis Colts (27.1 percent )
Lawrence’s last two games have disappointed fantasy managers. He has only passed for 356 yards, a touchdown, and an interception for a total of 17.74 fantasy points. It’s worth mentioning that he only attempted 33 passes in Week 9 for the second time this season. Despite suffering a minor ankle sprain last week against the Bills, he is expected to play against the Colts in Week 10. Lawrence is a possible streamer against an Indianapolis defense that has given up the fourth-most points per game to quarterbacks and had a poor showing last week against the New York Jets. Against the Colts defense, second-string quarterback Mike White and third-string quarterback Josh Johnson combined for 412 passing yards, four touchdowns, and just one interception.
Teddy Bridgewater, quarterback, Denver Broncos vs. Philadelphia Eagles (30.2 percent )
Bridgewater destroyed the Cowboys’ defense last week, throwing for 249 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions on 19 of 28 passing attempts. He also scored a touchdown on the ground and might have had a higher scoring total than his 21.86 points, but the Broncos led for virtually the entire game. He averaged 18.9 points per game from Weeks 5 to 8. Bridgewater has a good floor against a Philadelphia Eagles defense that allows quarterbacks to score 18.15 points a game. With a pass block win percentage of 12th in the NFL, the Broncos offensive line is ideally positioned to slow down Philadelphia’s pass rush, making him a fantastic QB2 in Week 10.
Returning to the beginning
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (54.9 percent )
Frank Reich, the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, has been chastised for his lack of use of Hines. He carried six times for 74 yards and a score against the Jets last week. He also had four receptions for 34 yards. This pattern might continue on Sunday, given that the Colts offensive line has the 14th-best run block success rate and the Jaguars defense has the 24th-best run stop win rate.
RB Jordan Howard of the Philadelphia Eagles takes against the Denver Broncos (35.9 percent )
Howard may feel insulted by being on the practice squad for the first seven weeks, based on the Eagles’ statistical performance during the last two games. Howard has ran 29 times for 128 yards and three touchdowns in those games, in all seriousness. He’s rekindled the Eagles’ offense, and the team’s offensive line, which boasts the fifth-best run block victory rate in the league, has provided him with rushing opportunities. Howard is an RB3/flex option against a Denver Broncos team that ranks 23rd in run stop win rate.
Arizona Cardinals RB Eno Benjamin vs. Carolina Panthers (4.4 percent )
Are you looking to make a deal but don’t know where to begin? The Trade Assistant, which is new to the ESPN App, is a matchmaking tool that evaluates your team’s needs and depth in comparison to every other team in your league and proposes deals for fantasy managers to propose or reject.
Over the last week, DeAndre Hopkins has been traded 91,549 times, about 8,000 times more than any other player.
Over the last week, Mike Gesicki’s agreements were accepted 18.2% of the time, the highest percentage among all qualifying flex-eligible players.
Josh Jacobs has changed fantasy teams in more leagues than any other running back in the last week (11,663 accepted deals).
Brandon Aiyuk’s use is on the rise, and fantasy managers are taking notice, as he was one of the top 25 most difficult players to acquire in the last week (87.8 percent rejection rate).
Isn’t it time to move on? Joe Burrow has the highest proportion of trade bids accepted of any player (21.1 percent ).
Benjamin has the possibility to inherit Chase Edmonds’ opportunity share due to his high ankle injury. Given James Conner’s injury history, the Cardinals’ decision to raise his workload would be unexpected. From Week 1 through Week 8, Edmonds had an average of 14.1 chances per game (rushing attempts + targets). Benjamin gained 39 yards and a touchdown last week. He’s a good RB3/flex option this week, especially in deeper formats.
At Patriots, D’Ernest Johnson, RB, Cleveland Browns (83.2 percent )
COVID-19 was found in Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton. Despite the fact that both players have been immunized, their fate for Week 10 remains unknown. You may recall Johnson’s performance against the Broncos in Week 7, when he rushed for 146 yards and a score on 22 attempts. Johnson’s roster rate has risen, indicating that most managers recall, therefore he’s unlikely to still be available in your league.
Receiver with a wide field
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Tyler Johnson plays against the Washington Redskins (2.5 percent )
Johnson grabbed five of six targets for 65 yards against the New Orleans Saints before to the Buccaneers’ bye week. Antonio Brown is still in a walking boot and is expected to miss his third game in a row this week. Brady passes to his open receivers all of the time, and Johnson is up against a Washington defense that allows the second-most points per game to receivers.
Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones faces the Patriots (17.0 percent )
Peoples-Jones is precisely what the Browns need to fill the vacuum left by Odell Beckham Jr.’s departure with the franchise. Over the last three games, he has caught 11 of 14 targets for 257 yards and three touchdowns. Peoples-Jones could be a breakthrough star for the Browns in the second half of the season. Against the Patriots, he has flex value.
Tyler Conklin, Minnesota Vikings tight end, faces the Chargers (40.3 percent )
Conklin snagged five of seven targets for 45 yards last week, matching Adam Thielen for the team lead in targets and, shockingly, receiving yards. Conklin has 19 targets in the last three games and faces a Chargers team that allows the seventh-most points per game to tight ends.
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Dan Arnold plays for the Indianapolis Colts (25.5 percent )
Lawrence’s favorite target lately has been Arnold, who has drawn 22 targets in the last three games. Against a Colts defense that has allowed six touchdowns to tight ends this season, this trend should continue.
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth vs. Detroit Lions (45.4 percent )
With Eric Ebron out with a hamstring injury, Freiermuth has stepped up in the last two games, catching nine passes for a total of three touchdowns. Regardless of Ebron’s condition, Freiermuth should have a field day in the red zone this week against the Lions.
Special teams and defense
Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers (32.9 percent )
Last week, Patrick Mahomes labored against two high safeties and was held to 166 yards and a score by the Packers’ defense. Green Bay will play Russell Wilson at home in Week 10 after he was cleared to play. In three career games versus the Packers on the road, Wilson has a passing rating of 60.4 with 604 yards, three touchdowns, and six interceptions.
The Raiders of Las Vegas will face the Chiefs of Kansas City (17.1 percent )
With 19, the Chiefs have the most giveaways in the NFL. Kansas City has to sort out their offense as quickly as possible, but in the meanwhile, it’s a strong streaming option. The Raiders have ranked 12th in points per game among fantasy defenses since Week 6.
Tennessee Titans vs. New Orleans Saints (40.3 percent )
The Titans’ defense caused two turnovers and sacked Matthew Stafford five times against the Rams. Tennessee has intercepted a pass in six consecutive games, the longest stretch in the league since 2010. The Titans will want to maintain their winning streak against the Saints, who rank 28th in total yards.
Cleveland Browns’ Chase McLaughlin faces the Patriots (18.6 percent )
McLaughlin equaled his previous three-game scoring total of 11 points in Sunday’s win. Hopefully, this is the start of a solid offensive season for the Browns. McLaughlin has made 13 of 15 field goals and all 23 extra points for Cleveland. Against the Patriots, he should have plenty of chances.
Pittsburgh Steelers versus. Lions: Chris Boswell (44.5 percent )
Boswell has hit all ten of his field goal attempts in the last five games. He faces a Lions club that has given the most fantasy points per game to kickers this season.
Los Angeles Chargers at. Minnesota Vikings: Dustin Hopkins (2.7 percent )
Hopkins has a decent chance of scoring more than 10 points against a Vikings defense that allows kickers to score the fifth most points per game.
Defensive players on their own (IDP)
Line of Defense
DE Dawuane Smoot, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts (0.1 percent rostered)
Smoot played 82 percent of defensive snaps against the Bills last week. He has 3.5 sacks and 17 pressures from Weeks 5 to 9, making him a player to target in deeper settings.
New Orleans Saints LB Kwon Alexander plays against the Tennessee Titans (1.6 percent )
After linebacker Demario Davis was injured earlier this season, the Saints were eager for someone to take his place opposite him. For the first time since his injury, he returned to the Saints’ starting lineup in Week 9 and played 78 percent of the defensive plays.
Back on defense
New York Jets versus. Texans: Sharrod Neasman, S (0.1 percent )
Neasman will take over for Marcus Maye, who is sidelined for the season. In Weeks 4 and 5, Neasman had seven tackles and two pass breakups while playing 60 or more plays.
The “fantasy football mock draft” is a last resort for people that are out of ideas for players to draft. It can be used to help you get an idea on which players are the best in the upcoming week.
