Tyler’s Unqualified Fantasy Corner: Week 10

There’s a certain feeling you have during Election Day. The sense of pride, of patriotism, and the moral obligation to do your duty and make your voice heard. That post-vote feeling can go a long way in setting the tone for the day, the week, even the year.

Like election day, the first week of November is pivotal for us fantasy owners. Playoffs are coming up, the pressure is high, our egos are tipping on the verge of no return. Unless, of course, you’re 2-7, can’t score more than 85 points in a PPR and your best receiver just got traded. Definitely no ego there. Believe me.

It’s a big week for America. I hope you voted for whoever you believe in, and I hope you put your waiver claims in for those you believe in as well. USA. Week 10 here we go.

WHO I WOULD START

Josh Gordon, NE WR

Flash is getting hot, and it couldn’t be coming at a better time. The Patriots are doing that normal thing every year where they start wildly slow, and then pick up dramatically. Gordon is a big part of that, getting 100 yards twice in the last three games. Look for him to continue the hot streak with Brady as he torches Tennessee.

WHY I’M WRONG:

Gordon is late to practice again, he doesn’t play this week due to the Patriot Iron fist. Your third round pick Chris Hogan, who you cut, finally pays off six weeks too late.

Nick Mullens, SF QB

I am ALL in on Nick Mullens. I don’t really have much stats to back it up. He tore up the Raiders, and he’s going to do the same to ELI. Niners roll again.

WHY I’M WRONG:

Nick Mullens is no Nick Foles. He proves to be a dud rather than a lightning rod for San Fran. He helps the Giants get back on track, well, if that’s what you want to call getting back on track. Uou get made fun of forever for starting him while Deshaun Watson is on a bye instead of Fitzmagic.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, GB WR

With Geronimo Allison done for the season, more opportunities are arising for the promising rook. He had over 100 yards on only three receptions Sunday night in New England, and he is due for a more prominent role in the offense going forward. Look for A-A-Ron to look for him more and get him the ball downfield. I’ve got MVS going into the end zone Sunday.

WHY I’M WRONG:

Again, why would you listen to me. Cobb and Adams are still the guys outside with Graham at Tight End. The Dolphins give the Pack a game and force Rodgers to throw….to everybody except Valdez-Scantling.

BONUS: Literally anybody playing Nathan Peterman.

I mean…come on.

WHO I WOULDN’T START

Corey Davis, TEN WR

Corey Davis might be up there with Shady as one of the most frustrating fantasy players this season. He was a high pick, expected to make the jump, and he just hasn’t. Aside from the outburst against Jalen Mills, which just about every wide receiver has, he’s been mostly quiet. Logging only 450 yards and 1 TD this season, he stays silent this week again.

WHY I’M WRONG:

The Davis from the Eagles game explodes again, going for 10 grabs and a score against the Pats in a rematch of the divisional round last year. He ends up being exactly what you need for the playoff push…if only you hadn’t left him on the bench.

Duke Johnson Jr., CLE RB

Duke had a big week last week against KC. His first two touchdowns of the season came through the air, but I think he slows down this week. Nick Chubb has been gaining steam on the ground and he is very close to breaking out for a 100 yard game. And I think the Browns run strong on a weak Falcons defensive front 7 in Cleveland. Look for Chubb to get the most productive touches this week.

WHY I’M WRONG:

The Falcons are red hot. They are charging toward the playoffs and don’t look to be slowed down by a lowly Browns team with a coaching staff in disarray. The Browns have to pass to keep up, setting up Duke for another two scores, and Chubb gets nothing. And you look even worse because you listened to me. Classic you.

Matthew Stafford, DET QB

I am not totally sure what Detroit is doing. Traded away Golden Tate, come out firing away on Minnesota and lay an egg. Stafford threw less than 200 yards last week on that defense. While I think that number goes up, I think the number of turnovers does as well. He has struggled with the turnovers as he often does, and I think that continues Sunday. The Bears are vicious on the defensive side. And if Mack is back, look out.

WHY I’M WRONG:

I am just flat out wrong. The Lions are weird. They’ll produce a stinker against the Jets one week and dominate New England the next. I don’t understand. Lions win, probably. You lose, definitely.

Like I said, wear your teams with pride, and always exercise your right to use that waiver claim on Mike Davis because Chris Carson may or may not be hurt.

Go America. See you next week!
