Week 10 RB Sleepers and Landmines

by , and • November 8, 2018

Each week, as we prepare to make some difficult lineup decisions, our team, which includes Rob Willette, Ryan McDowell, and Sal Leto, will bring you a few sleepers and landmines for each position. Our sleeper picks could be on your waiver wire or a low-priced DFS target or could simply be going overlooked this week. On the other hand, our landmine players are getting attention, too much attention. These are players we feel are being overvalued and overpriced and would avoid for this week.

SLEEPERS

Jalen Richard $5,000

Since the Raiders dealt WR Amari Cooper and lost RB Marshawn Lynch to the IR list, pass-catching RB Jalen Richard has finished as the RB23 and RB26, leading the team in targets and receptions. To use Richard in your fantasy lineup, you have to expect the Raiders to tril for much of the game, which should be the case against the high-scoring Chargers. Beside providing the necessary game script, the Chargers are also a nice matchup since they have allowed the league’s thurd-most recieving yardage to opposing backs, 526 yards in just eight games. – Ryan McDowell

Ito Smith $4,900

But why? Tevin Coleman just had a big day on Sunday. Well start him too. I’m here to convince you to play Ito. While Coleman has two touchdowns this past week they both came through the air. Smith has a touchdown too, rushing. In fact he has four rushing touchdowns in the last five games. He is at worst the redzone back out carrying Coleman 15-8 on the season and with Julio usually getting tackled inside the five yard line the opportunities should be there. No team has given up more touchdowns on the ground this season than the 12 from the Cleveland Browns. Put them both in against the 30th ranked run defense (32nd over the last 5 weeks). – Sal Leto

LANDMINES

Christian McCaffrey $7,900

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey is coming off a huge game a week ago and will have many fantasy owners chasing his points but the matchup is not nearly as kind this week. McCaffrey faces the Steelers, who have allowed the the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the RB position. Most concerning is the Steelers ability to shut down pass-catching backs, having only given up 187 receiving yards to the position all season, which easily leads the league. The Steelers have only given up two top 20 fantasy performances to opposing RBs this season, Joe Mixon’s RB11 game and Kareem Hunt’s RB16 back in Week Two. No back has caught more than four passes against Pittsburgh this season. – Ryan McDowell

Ezekiel Elliot $5,700

I can’t honestly tell you to bench Zeke this week but it will be tough sledding. Since week four’s monster game Zeke has one touchdown and 100 yard game, both in the same game. Essentially he’s been average in three of the last four. This week he gets the top rush defense in the league. The Eagles have allowed just one running back to go over 42 yards this season and only two have found the end zone over eight games. The offensive line looks very ordinarily and the Cowboys are trending towards spiraling out on the season. – Sal Leto
