Start and Sit for Week 10

Now that we are rolling into the second half of the season and the bye gauntlet continues, tough decisions need to be made to bring home that win so we can inch closer to hoisting up that title at the end of the season. This week, Leo Grandio (@smooth1074) is riding solo for some options to start or sit for Week 10. Matt Miles (@DirtyAirFC will return next week for Week 11. Remember that you are starting your fantasy studs if they are healthy. We will focus on giving fantasy managers an edge on who to ride with or on who should ride the pine for the week. Without further ado here are some options to Start and Sit for Week 10.

Starters at Quarterback 

Will Levis, QB Titans

After his explosive debut against the Falcons at home in Week 8, the Steelers held Will Levis in check last week. Now with the upper echelon of quarterbacks on a bye this week you may need to dig deep to pull out the win in Week 10. Fantasy managers in this predicament should fire up the rookie signal-caller this week. Levis faces the Buccaneers who are allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this Fall. The Buccaneers just allowed C.J. Stroud to break the rookie record for passing yards in a game at 470 yards while tying the record for five touchdowns in a game. Maybe Levis can bring home some of that magic and light up the Buccaneers as well. - Leo Grandio


Sitters at Quarterback

Deshaun Watson, QB Browns

Deshaun Watson was somewhat impressive in his return from his shoulder injury against the lowly Cardinals defense last week. In his return, Watson threw for 219 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately, he will have a little tougher match-up this week when he battles the stingy Ravens defense. The Ravens are allowing the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season at a clip of 11.1 fantasy points per game. Look elsewhere for a starting quarterback this week. - Leo Grandio


Starters at Running Back

James Cook, RB Bills

Should we give James Cook one more chance to give us some fantasy love? I say let’s ride. Cook has not been good for fantasy managers this season and with the looming implementation of Leonard Fournette in the Bills offense Cook’s fantasy prospects could be fading soon. But let’s give him one last go for Week 10. This week Cook faces the Denver Broncos who are allowing the most fantasy points to running back this season. If he can’t get it done this week Cook might be a sit for the rest of the season. - Leo Grandio


Sitters at Running Back

Saquon Barkley, RB Giants

In the last two weeks, the Giants have lost their top two quarterbacks to IR including starter Daniel Jones who just returned from a neck injury. What does this mean for Saquon Barkley? Life just got a lot harder for him for the rest of the season. With Tommy DeVito behind center, Barkley will be facing a heavy diet of eight-man fronts with no room to run. In Week 10, Barkley will face the Cowboys who held him to 51 yards rushing in Week 1. I know you have to start your studs but you better temper those expectations this week for Barkley. - Leo Grandio


Starters at Wide Receiver

Tyler Boyd, WR Bengals

With Ja’Marr Chase battling a back injury and barely practicing and Tee Higgins nursing a hamstring injury and ruled out for the week, the table is set for Mr. Tyler Boyd to be a possible WR2 or Flex play for fantasy managers this week. The Bengals battle the Texans who were in a shootout last week against the Buccaneers. Boyd should receive double-digit targets and hopefully produce close to 100-plus receiving yards with plenty of receptions. - Leo Grandio


Sitters at Wide Receiver

Zay Flowers, WR Ravens

Zay Flowers is coming off the worst performance of his young career with his one reception for 11 yards. In Week 10 it may not get much better. Flowers will face the Browns' defense that is allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this year. The last time Flowers went up against the Browns he scored only eight fantasy points. Look for other options because it does not look good for Flowers to blossom this week. - Leo Grandio


Starters at Tight End

Dalton Kincaid, TE Bills

We’re in the middle of Dalton Kincaid season. Over the last three weeks, Kincaid has averaged 8.6 targets and with those targets, he has totaled 23 receptions for 221 yards and a touchdown. Kincaid gets the pleasure of playing the Broncos who are allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends in 2023. Fire up the rookie tight end and enjoy the fantasy fireworks. - Leo Grandio


Sitters at Tight End

Kyle Pitts, TE Falcons

How hard has it been counting on Kyle Pitts this year? Through nine games Pitts has scored double-digit fantasy points only twice this year, and the last time he did so was in Week 5. Between his lack of involvement in the offense and Jonnu Smith basically splitting targets with the unicorn, Pitts is a hard pass for me in Week 10. Pitts will be facing the Cardinals this week who have defended tight ends well this season and are allowing the ninth-fewest fantasy points to the position. - Leo Grandio


Starters at Defense

Seattle Seahawks Defense

So far the Seattle Seahawks Defense has been pretty decent especially when they have a favorable match-up. This week they get to play the Commanders who allow the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing defenses. If you are looking for a streaming defense in a deep league for the week, the Seahawks should be started if you need them. -Leo Grandio


Sitters at Defense

Cleveland Browns Defense

The Cleveland Browns Defense has been one of the best this season but they will go up against a Baltimore offense that could challenge them this week. The last time the Browns' Defense faced Baltimore, the Browns could only come up with four fantasy points and that was at Cleveland. The Browns defensive unit could be in for another rough outing so if you could exploit another defense I recommend you do so. -Leo Grandio
