2022 Week 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers
🚨 ATTENTION 🚨 These are sleepers. They don’t mimic my rating 100%. It tends to be upward and often risky.
POSSIBLE START: Daniel Jones, New York — Jones is coming off his worst game of the season, but it came against a decent defense (Seahawks). With a week off to recover and plan for the Texas matchup, Jones should bounce back … well, mostly for the matchup, and Jones’ passing ability isn’t that great. It’s actually Jones’ legs that add to his fantasy value, with three of his 68+ rushing yard games and two of his 20+ point games coming with a rushing touchdown (or two). Hopefully Jones doesn’t choke like he did in Week 8.
POSSIBLE START: Rachaad White, TB — According to reports, the Buccaneers could lean on White more as the season nears, and against the Seahawks, he could start this week. While the Seahawks’ defense against receivers has been better than expected, they are very susceptible to passing catches, as Austin Ekeler destroyed them with a 12-12-96-1 line, Alvin Kamara had 6-6-91 receptions, Javonte Williams had 12-11-65 in Week 1. Went 0 even though James Conner put up 5-5-19 in his return last week.
HAIL MARY START: Isiah Pacheco, KC — As mentioned in the podcast, I want nothing to do with the Chiefs, Broncos, Rams and Bills backfields… if possible. Yes, we need to use someone every week, especially for the Chiefs and Bills offenses, and this time we can identify Pacheco’s positives. This is hoping to catch the ball and run while holding onto the lead. The backfield is a true committee, with Jericho McKinnon excelling, but Pacheco will likely see more running (no pun intended) with a healthy lead that the Chiefs should have against the Jaguars.
LIKELY START: DeAndre Carter, LAC — Josh Palmer’s advice is paying off, so let’s turn to Carter this week. He was a good option in Week 9, but has the upside against the 49ers, regardless of how it looks on paper. The 49ers are tops in the league in receptions of 20+ yards, and yes, some of those went to Cooper Kupp alone, but even the Panthers had four receptions in Week 5. Carter has big game potential. 10.4 Air/TGT and 20.8% of his receptions went for 20+ yards despite playing mostly out of the slot. The crankcase may appear large and not fall off.
LIKELY START: Van’Dale Robinson, New York — In Weeks 6-8, Robinson is tied with Darius Slayton for the team lead in target percentage (17.6) and has the most receptions (11) and is just one of three players to reach the ceiling. All this with his low 3-2-15-0 performance before the bye (thanks, Daniel Jones). Those previous two games we hope he emulates because the matchup was favorable as long as the Giants didn’t come out too early and run out of time (Texans).
HI MARY START: Donovan Peoples-Jones, CL — Interestingly, Amari Cooper dominates at home and struggles a bit on the road, which is where DPJ comes in. The Browns have three road games to five at home, but Peoples-Jones is 20-13-215 on the road and 26-17-202 at home. The Browns also travel to Miami, where we’re hoping for an upset and Jacoby Brissett’s second game of 40+ passes this year.
THE CLOSED END
HAIL MARY START: Cade Otton, TB — Even if Cameron Brate returns, I’m willing to gamble on Otton, who has been third in TmTGT% since Week 4 (Brate played in Weeks 4 and 6). Otton is also second in Red Zone and End Zone targets, turning in a 30-22-242-1 line during that stretch. What would really help is facing the Seahawks. None of the opponents averaged at least 5.2 points per game in the tight end — TJ Hockenson blew them away in Week 4, Zach Ertz went a solid 5-40-1 last week, and even Tanner Hudson managed 3-58-0 for the Giants. .
Have fun with ratings!
The ultimate football party food
It’s back to food this week and I have a huge appetite for this flu…or whatever it is. I’ve always gone the hungry route when I’m sick – some people just don’t want to eat anything – so I thought, ‘Why not name the top 10 football party foods?’ I thought. It’s the middle of the NFL season, so… let’s join the ranks… and great food. I am also happy to hear your suggestions. I always love trying new foods/snacks.
- Pizza “What’s the point of having a football party if there’s no pizza?” I try several types of pizza besides regular pizza – bites, rolls, bread, etc. I accept.
- Buffalo Chicken – It can be assumed that this is the taste of the streets of heaven. I have to share it on my plate or I want to eat the whole bowl.
- Wings — Would be higher if not for the endless need for napkins/tissues. Louisiana flavor is my favorite (Wingstop or mine).
- Sliders — It’s really a category of its own, but burgers, barbecue, chicken, etc. are definitely a must, especially because they’re easier to eat than a full-sized burger.
- Soft pretzels — I may be going crazy, but I love soft candy — whether it’s all-you-can-eat, bite-size, or full-on regular candy — and everything from salt to cinnamon sugar and more. there are many options.
- Buffalo Chicken — They are similar to spring rolls (size and makeup), but just stuffed with buffalo chicken. Easy to make, easy to eat and easy to love.
- Chips — Over the lays!
- Pigs in a blanket — Did you know that the plural form is pigs in blankets? Cute, huh?
- Mac and cheese — Easy side, very tasty and you can add different spins to it.
- Taco/Layer Dip/Nachos — You could argue that it should be higher, I won’t argue much, but buffalo chicken is much better, and I hate beans, especially fried glop in water. If you drop the beans, I’ll dive in!
BONUS: Monkey Bread — If you’ve never had one (perhaps you didn’t realize it was called that), do yourself a favor and make some next time. Like chicken wings, it involves a lot of hand cleaning afterwards, but it’s a taste of the clouds in the sky. Imagine a Cinnabon environment – you get it in every bite!
- Justin Herbert, QB, LAC — I’m far from an apologist for Herbert, but he doesn’t have a complete arsenal this year, and if Keenan Allen and/or Mike Williams return, the Chargers have a middling schedule because Herbert still has a lot of upside.
- Michael Carter, RB, New York — Yes, splitting the backfield, but a favorable schedule and managers may think about “selling high” after a good game.
- Gus Edwards, RB, BAL — The Ravens have a bye, Edwards is the leader when healthy and should return in Week 11.
- Courtland Sutton, WR, Den — I was here last week because Jerry Judy had a bad stretch earlier this year and now Sutton is in the middle of it. I don’t expect a Top 20 ROS for Sutton, but managers are dropping him right away.
- Deontay Johnson, WR, PIT — Also here last week, with Chase Claypool leaving, Kenny narrows down the passing tree for Pickett and Johnson’s volume was high anyway.
- Michael Pittman, WR, IND — Regarding Sam Ehlinger on defense, but Pittman is still in the WR3 conversation, along with other boom/bust options like Gabriel Davis.
- Pat Fryermuth, TE, PIT — Like Johnson, Fryermuth benefits from Claypool being out of the equation.
- Justin Fields, QB, CHI — We discussed Fields ROS Athletic Olympic Games pod, and he was close to Top 5 at QB, but some put him there. I’d still take Tua Tagovailoa, though, so if others in your league see him as Joe Burrow/Kyler Murray/etc. you get the highest return value — even if Fields continues to do so… run.
- Joe Mixon, RB, CIN — not just because of all the fumbles in Week 9, but because the Bengals have one of the worst running back schedules in the fantasy playoffs.
- Josh Jacobs, RB, LV — It might be tough to sell Jacobs right now, but you could argue that it’s just a rough stretch for the Raiders, because realistically, the schedule doesn’t look good in Weeks 14-17, and the Raiders could start in 2023.
- Tyler Boyd, WR, CIN — It seems obvious, but there are plenty of inexperienced leagues with managers who would bite Ja’Marr Chase.
- Darnell Mooney, WR, CHI — Fields made several tackles with Claypool in his first game with the Bears. Mooney has been good as the volume king in the Bears’ passing game, and Mooney dropping even five percentage points in TmTGT% would be a huge detriment to his value.
