The AEE Fantasy Start/Sit List – WR 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: Marquise Brown @ Cincinnati Bengals
Now that he’s finally healthy, I think Marquise Brown could be an excellent start this week against the Bengals. When the Ravens have faced really bad teams, they’ve taken the opportunity to exercise the passing game more. I believe this could line up as one of those games, with Hollywood Brown being the biggest benefactor. His floor is still pretty scary, but I think the ceiling is worth taking the risk.
Start – Marvin Jones @ Chicago Bears: At the start of the season, this seemed like an ugly matchup. However, even without the Bears troubles on offense, this defense is good but not great this season. Marvin Jones is benefitting from the lack of a run game and I think the extra passing volume combined with the matchup against the Bears makes Jones a great play this week.
Start – Christian Kirk @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Since returning from injury, Christian Kirk has looked good, but it hasn’t translated to the stat sheet. I think this week, that changes, because the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. Kyler Murray is playing well and I think Kirk is an excellent start here.
Start – Calvin Ridley @ New Orleans Saints: Assuming Julio Jones sees blanket coverage from Marshon Lattimore, I think Calvin Ridley will be able to capitalize on having the weaker cornerback matched up against him. With Mohamed Sanu out of town, Ridley is seeing added snaps when healthy and he showed toughness by coming back into last week’s game after a big hit. I like Ridley a lot this week.
Start – Zach Pascal vs Miami Dolphins: Whether it was Jacoby Brissett or Brian Hoyer in at quarterback, Zach Pascal operated as the number one receiver for the Colts. He led the team in targets, receptions, yards and found the endzone to put an exclamation point on his performance. He now gets a prime matchup against the Miami Dolphins. I’m not just starting Zach Pascal, I’m starting any Colts pass-catcher I can get my mitts on.
Sit of the Week: Davante Adams vs Carolina Panthers
I think Davante Adams owners are about to be disappointed for a second straight week. Even with the volume he saw last week, Adams did not surpass 50 yards, nor did he find the endzone. Furthermore, it’s likely Davante Adams sees a lot of James Bradberry in this game. Bradberry is low key one of the league’s top corners and many top wide receivers struggle against him, most notably Mike Evans. I really doubt you can afford to sit Davante Adams this week unless you’re super deep at wide receiver, but if you have the option, you could probably get away with it this week.
Sit – Odell Beckham vs Buffalo Bills: Meh. That’s how I would describe Odell Beckham’s fantasy season thus far. This is going to be a risky week for Beckham owners, because I feel you have to start him, but you need to temper expectations. If the Bills defense can show up in this game, it’s going to be a rough outing for Odell Beckham on the road in Buffalo.
Sit – Auden Tate vs Baltimore Ravens: I actually loved Auden Tate as a streaming wide receiver option when Andy Dalton was under center. Unfortunately, with Dalton finding the bench in favor of Ryan Finley, I have zero confidence in this offense until I see it for myself.
Sit – Corey Davis vs Kansas City Chiefs: After what seemed like a potential breakout game for Corey Davis, he has crashed and burned the last two weeks. Now, Davis is not practicing. If Corey Davis does somehow play, he’s probably going to be limited and should stay on your bench, especially since the Chiefs defense is starting to play better.
Sit – Randall Cobb vs Minnesota Vikings: It was actually a solid game last week that Randall Cobb put in and if not for a holding penalty, his final stat line would look much better. Even still, the Vikings defense has played better as of late and I think they might key in on Cobb, as Amari Cooper has struggled to stay healthy recently. Cooper is likely to still suit up, but I’m not feeling Cobb in this matchup.
