Last week was a very interesting one for fantasy football as many of last weeks top players came out of nowhere. Not many people would have thought that Ray Rice, Cedric Benson and Jamaal Charles would have gone over 100 yards last week or that Koren Robinson would have had over 100 yards receiving. Here are my week 10 fantasy studs.
QB: Chad Pennington vs Seahawks: Pennington has played very well this season and he now goes up against the 31st ranked pass defense in the Seahawks. Don’t be surprised if Pennington has one of the best fantasy weeks out of any quarterback. Expect around 230 yards and 2 touchdowns.
RB: Tim Hightower vs 49ers: What a difference a week makes. Last week at this time Hightower was a touchdown vulture taking away from Edgerrin James owners. Now he is one of the hottest commodities in fantasy football after his 100 yard 1 touchdown performance last week. Hightower could be in for another big week against a struggling 49ers defense and should be active in all leagues this week. Expect around 120 total yards and 2 touchdowns.
WR: Matt Jones vs Lions: Who would have thought at this time last year that Jones would be the Jaguars number one receiver? He should be in for a big game this week though as it’s a must win for the Jaguars and the Lions are 29th against the pass. Expect around 85 yards and a touchdown.
TE: Donald Lee vs Vikings: Lee was one of the most productive tight ends in all of fantasy football last season but this season he hasn’t been as productive. Lee should get back on track against a struggling Vikings pass defense this week though. Expect around 50 yards and a touchdown.
K: Neil Rackers vs 49ers: With the Cardinals explosive offense, Rackers should be in for a very big week on the national stage. Expect around 2 field goals and 4 extra points.
Def: Panthers vs Raiders: The Panthers defense is still available in many fantasy leagues and the way the Raiders offense is playing, it would be smart to be play any defens opposing them. Expect around 3 sacks and 2 interceptions.
Star to sit: Plaxico Burress vs Eagles: Burress has put up some great fantasy numbers this year but could be in for a rough week against a tough Eagles defense that is very good against the pass. He should still be started in all leagues, but don’t expect great numbers.
