A lot of injuries are starting to pile up in the NFL, enter potential sleepers making big impacts for your upcoming fantasy matchup. The fantasy season has been quite unpredictable. Who thought that Bijan Robinson would see less touches than Allgeier? Or Puca Nacua would be one of the top WR fantasy options. Let’s get into some sleepers for Week 10 of the NFL season…
QB: Taylor Heinicke (ATL) vs Arizona Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals aren’t a very good team on both sides of the ball. This means a lot of possessions for the opposition… enter Taylor Heinicke. Heinicke has proven to be more of a passing option than Ridder was, making him a good start vs the terrible Cardinals defense. He posted nearly 16 points last week in an average game vs Vikings, I expect him to have a better game vs the Cardinals.
Projected points: 20.11
RB: Jaylen Warren (PIT) vs Green Bay Packers
Jaylen Warren had another solid outing last week, rushing for over 80 yards. He’s been a consistent #2 option for the Steelers as a backup and has proven to be a valuable receiver out of the backfield.
If you can get Warren on the waiver-wire, picking him up as an option to give you 10-14 points as a backup RB can’t hurt. Expect him to get a decent amount of touches against the Packers, as a receiver and runner.
Projected points: 12.5
WR: Demario Douglas (NE) vs Indianapolis Colts
The Patriots passing offense is extremely hard to predict, but Douglas has shown to be a consistent option as of late. In the past 3 weeks, he’s seen 20 targets and I expect that to be a continuing trend. He’s been a dependable option for Mac Jones from the receiver position.
Projected points: 14.8
TE: Tanner Hudson (CIN) vs Houston Texans
You’ve probably never heard of the journeyman tight-end Tanner Hudson, but he’s proven to be a valuable safety valve for QB Joe Burrow to go to when he plays. The Bengals have been searching for consistency from their TE position all year and Hudson has shown flashes of being just that when he’s on the field. While playing only 23% of offensive snaps last week vs Bills, he had 4 catches for 45 yards.
Don’t be surprised if Hudson continues to get more looks in the Bengals prolific passing offense, he might end up having a big game vs the Texans, who allow the 3rd most points to tight ends.
Projected points: 11.7
