Some fantasy owners might already be trying to “Suck For Luck”, but for those of you still in the race here are some last minute tips on some players who may surprise or disappoint.
Fantasy Football Week 10 Big Names Who Could Disappoint
The two teams have already played once before, with the Lions winning 24-13. Cutler had 249 yards and a touchdown, but he couldn’t get the ball into the endzone in the second half. He should be able to have an average week, but if you have a backup who is poised for a strong week, it would not be a bad idea to bench Cutler.
Mendenhall and the Steelers will be facing the Bengals, who own the second ranked rush defense in the NFL. He has only had over twenty carries once this season, against the Jaguars, as the Steelers usually look to Roethlisberger and the passing game for the majority of the offense production.
The Bengals have only had one real test this season, which came in a 13-8 loss to the 49ers. Their defense is great at shutting down the run, and this should not change on Sunday against the Steelers.
The Bills lost to the Jets 27-11 last week, and Johnson was held to three catches and no touchdowns. He has not caught a touchdown since Week 6, and has not had 100 yards in a game this year.
He and the Bills are playing the Cowboys on Sunday, who are middle of the pack in pass defense. He should have another average day, but he will still be without a 100 yard game after the weekend is over.
Fantasy Football Week 10 Under-the-Radar Players to Consider
Moore and the Dolphins won their first game of the year last week against the Chiefs, in a game that saw Moore throw for three touchdowns.
They are facing the Redskins on Sunday, who own the 11th best pass defense in the league, but Moore has weapons in Brandon Marshall and even Reggie Bush out of the backfield. Moore will not have an Aaron Rodgers type day, but he can be a good replacement for a quarterback who could have an off week.
Helu is not the main option in the backfield for the Redskins, but he has been able to put up points the last few weeks. He only had 41 rushing yards last week, but he had 14 receptions for 105 yards.
He is a great dual-threat for the Redskins, and can take advantage of the Miami defense. He is a great option to put in the RB/WR spot on the roster.
The Browns’ offense has been tough to watch the last few weeks, but they are going up against the Rams at home this week.
Cribbs has had at least 50 yards and a touchdown in the last two weeks, and is now the main option at receiver for Colt McCoy. He should be able to find the endzone at least once, if not more this week against the 1-7 Rams.
