The AEE Fantasy Start/Sit List – QB edition – Week 10
The Fantasy Football 2019 NFL regular season. As we continue the regular season, let’s take a look at the best starts and sits heading into Week 10 of your fantasy football matchups.
Start of the Week: Daniel Jones @ New York Jets:
The New York Jets are so bad they gave the Miami Dolphins their first win of the season. Daniel Jones has been touch and go through his rookie season, but this is clearly a bounce-back spot in which I feel he has a pretty safe floor. Even with Evan Engram inactive for this game, I’m starting Danny Dimes with confidence.
Start – Sam Darnold vs New York Giants: It’s been ugly, but even in back to back losses, Sam Darnold has been serviceable for fantasy football owners who’ve started him. I believe he will continue to be serviceable against the New York Giants, who have one of the worst defenses in the league. It’s definitely a floor play, but it seems like Darnold is at least a safe option this week.
Start – Kyler Murray @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers: With Gardner Minshew losing his job in Jacksonville, Kyler Murray is now the presumptive favorite to win Offensive Rookie of the Year. Murray will have one of his best matchups right now against the Buccaneers, who have a pretty good run defense, but can’t do much of anything to stop the pass.
Start – Brian Hoyer or Jacoby Brissett vs Miami Dolphins: Whichever Colts quarterback makes the start, whether it’s Brian Hoyer or Jacoby Brissett, they’ll be an excellent streaming option against the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins might have won their first game of the season, but they still allowed Sam Darnold to have a half-decent fantasy day. The Colts are a far better offense, so feel confident in starting Hoyer or Brissett here.
Sit of the Week: Josh Allen @ Cleveland Browns
This feels like it could be a trap game for Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. The Cleveland Browns’ defense has been hot and cold this year, but this could potentially be a bounceback spot for them against an overrated Bills team. Josh Allen has thrown for less than 200 yards the last 2 weeks and has yet to pass for over 300 yards all season. His running efficiency has sunk as well, which means that Josh Allen’s formerly safe floor isn’t as safe as it once was. Find another option if you’re able to.
Sit – Jared Goff @ Pittsburgh Steelers: After an abysmal performance against the San Francisco 49ers, Jared Goff bounced back nicely with two great weeks against Atlanta and Cincinnati. As well as Goff has played, the Steelers defense has played arguably even better since adding Minkah Fitzpatrick. A road matchup in Pittsburgh is no joke, so I’d look for another option here.
Sit – Kyle Allen @ Green Bay Packers: I’ve been adding Kyle Allen in all of the leagues that I can grab him in, but it’s not for this week. The Green Bay Packers defense has been on a steady decline since the first couple weeks of the season, however, their pass defense is still respectable. I’m stashing Kyle Allen for next week against Atlanta, but I’m keeping him on my bench this week.
Sit – Matt Ryan @ New Orleans Saints: This goes for Matt Schaub as well, but in any event, I’m nervous about starting a quarterback against a surging Saints defense, especially when they’re playing in New Orleans. I think Marshon Lattimore could hold off Julio Jones from having a monster day and I really doubt they’ll be able to run against New Orleans. I might be wrong about this one, but there are just so many good streaming options that I feel I won’t be wrong by much.
Sit – Ryan Fitzpatrick @ Indianapolis Colts: We saw the rise of Fitzmagic last week as the Dolphins won their first game of the regular season. However, the Colts are a much better defense than the New York Jets, so I wouldn’t go chasing waterfalls by trying to start Fitzmagic again; it could quickly become Fitztragic.
