Our analysts reveal their wildest week 10 fantasy predictions yet. What will come true?
Count on Kmet
Scott Pianovski: We must forget the early part Cole Kmet season. The Bears’ offense was a show of hide and seek, with little creativity or activity in the passing game. Kmet has three touchdowns in two weeks and is the biggest target day of the year. And think of how he’s been scoring lately, capitalizing on game design and enjoying a defense that’s been petrified by Justin Fields ability to run. These are chips.
Kmet is currently TE17 in the expert consensus ranking, which makes no sense. The Lions have problems with the coverage of the seams, and they allowed the position to third place on points. Kmet is easily in my top 10 and I will start with him wherever I can.
Gibson sneaks into RB1 territory
Matt Harmon: It’s far from the sexiest attack and week 9 results weren’t perfect, but I’m going back to the well with Antonio Gibson. We know it Terry McLaurin took a hit from ODU’s Finest bottom center, but Gibson is in third place with a target share of 15.9% in Taylor Heinicke three starts. With a fieldmate JD McKissick due to a neck injury, Gibson should not be in the position for the time being. Washington on Monday night gets the Eagles, who rank 31st in hits but third in passing passes. So Gibson can win in two ways: he can hit some big games against this funneled defense, or he can catch some comeback passes. I see him making his way into the ranks of RB1 this week.
Brisset’s big day
Dalton Del Don: Browns prefer to run, but Contenders have the second highest passing percentage (67.7%) when they play in Miami this season. The Dolphins’ defense also shows a level of bottom-five pressure and has allowed the quarterbacks to score the most fantastic points this season (despite facing Zach Wilson, Kenny Pickett, Mac Jones as well as Jared Goff). Conversely, the Miami offense is well positioned to score a ton of points on Sunday in one of the highest totals (48.5 points) of the week. Jacoby Brisset available in 90% of Sportzshala leagues but is in the top 5 fantasy QBs this week.

Olav: WR1 in general?
Andy Berens: Chris Olav has been the king of the NFL airfields for most of the season, but he hasn’t turned into the monster winner of the week yet. It feels like maybe this is about to change. Olav got the Steelers defense this week, which allowed the opposition to get the most fantastic points in a game. The Wideouts scored 13 touchdowns against that defense and had six games for 100 yards. We’ll soon see Olav’s first multi-TD performance and possibly his first week in the WR1 overall.
