Travis Etienne has thrived since the Jaguars traded James Robinson to the New York Jets, while Kenyan Drake has capitalized on J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards struggling to stay on the field. Even Tyler Allgaier joined the Falcons and Fantasy last week despite the return of Cordarrell Patterson from injured reserves. However, players should be careful when making decisions about Fantasy Football Week 10 starting places and understand where each player ranks in their Fantasy Football Week 10 rankings. Deon Jackson, D’Onta Foreman and Khalil Herbert were all underdogs last week after looking like they couldn’t miss options in Week 9. Check out the Week 10 Fantasy Football rankings on the verified computer model on SportsLine..
When it comes to player rankings, the SportsLine model has outperformed the human experts in fantasy football over the past few seasons, especially when there have been big ranking differences. Over the course of a season, that can literally be the difference between winning the league or going home empty-handed.
Last week, the model praised Jaguar running back Travis Etienne very highly, saying he would finish in the top 10 at his position. Result: Etienne threw 28 carries for 109 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday’s victory over the Raiders. Everyone with him on the lineup was on their way to a huge week.
Now, a model that mimics every NFL game 10,000 times has revealed its fantasy football rankings for Week 10 of the 2022 NFL season. Head to SportsLine now to see them.
10 Best Fantasy Football Picks of the Week
One player the model is appreciating this week: Cowboys running back Tony Pollard. Fellow Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) may return this week, but Pollard was the more effective option.
Against the Lions in Week 7, Pollard rushed for 83 yards on just 12 carries, and a week later against the Bears, he rushed for 131 yards and three touchdowns on 14 attempts. Cowboys fans and fantasy players are calling for Pollard to play a bigger role in Dallas’ offense, with or without Elliott. The Packers have conceded 436 yards in the past three weeks, so the model predicts Pollard will finish in the top 10 fantasy runners on Sunday, with or without Elliott. See who else to target here.
And a big shock: Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, who has thrown for 2,254 yards and 13 touchdowns this season, stumbles badly and doesn’t even hit the top 10 in his position.
Herbert’s 2,254 passing yards rank fifth in the league, but he hasn’t thrown more than one touchdown in three of his last four games. Also on Sunday, Herbert and the Chargers will take on the San Francisco 49ers, a defense that’s lost just 285.9 yards per game this season, which ranks first in the NFL. With such a tough matchup on Sunday, Herbert might consider leaving him on the bench in Week 10. Look who else will disappear here.
How to set the Fantasy Football Week 10 Ranking
The model also calls for a surprise quarterback you wouldn’t even think would make it into the top 10 of the Week 10 fantasy football rankings. That choice can be the difference between winning big and coming home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
