NFL Weekend Picks - Week 10

Great Pick

Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Pick: Tampa Bay +1

The Cowboys have been an absolute disaster since losing Tony Romo to injury in week two. Over that stretch they have lost all six games and are 1-5 against the spread. The Buccaneers having been playing surprisingly well as of late and with their young offense is improving each game. The Bucs should be able to handle the Romo-less Cowboys at home.

Good Pick

New England Patriots vs. New York Giants

Pick: New York +7.5

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have dominated almost all other quarterback and coach combinations over their long tenure together, but one of the rare exceptions is the Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin. Eli and Tom are 3-1 against the Pats – 4-0 versus the spread – including two victories in the Super Bowl. This pick could be classified more under “Bold” than “Good”, but as the season progresses on sometimes you just need to be a little bolder.

Game to Avoid

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore -6.5

The Ravens take the cake for best underachieving team in 2015. Not only are the Ravens having arguably their worst season in their 20 year existence, they are terrible against the spread at 1-6 with a push as well. The Jaguars have less talent than the Ravens as a whole, but with their offense is becoming one of the more dangerous ones in the NFL with great depth and youth at wide receiver.   

Fantasy Players of the Week:

Quarterback: Ryan Tannehill vs. Philadelphia Eagles - The Eagles defense showed some major flaws last week against the Dallas Cowboys, giving up over 20 points to fill in quarterback Matt Cassel. Between their inability to stop a backup and the fact that history tells us Tannehill is due for a big day rushing – having yet to top 40 yards this season in spite of having done it at least once in every other season.

Running Back: James Starks vs. Detroit Lions – With the news of James Starks getting the start on Sunday, he is certainly to be a hot commodity in the fantasy world. In the few games this season he has gotten the majority of the touches, Starks has been dynamic – showing strength in both the rushing and passing game. Eddie Lacy will still get some playing time and maybe more carries in the redzone – Starks’ inability to make plays in the passing games makes him a great option on Sunday.

Wide Receiver: Stefan Diggs vs. Oakland Raiders – The rookie receiver has been making some highlight reel catches lately which has him becoming popular amongst Viking fans, but the “real” development is him growing chemistry with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. With Bridgewater likely to play on Sunday and the Oakland Raiders getting torched by receivers lately, Diggs is a solid option this week in fantasy.

Tight End: Delanie Walker vs. Carolina Panthers – They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but who is the best friend of a rookie quarterback? A big and reliable tight end.  Delanie Walker has been a productive tight end this season, with some of his biggest games coming against NFC opponents. Carolina will be the Titans final NFC opponent for the season, a shame for Walker owners as he is averaging 65 yards and has 3 touchdowns in the first three games against these out of conference foes.

Defense: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns: Pittsburgh over the last season and a half is more known for its offensive fire power, but that does not mean the Steelers still cannot be a force on defense. The Steelers have been quietly producing solid fantasy games on defense, registering at least 2 sacks in 7 0f 9 games and forcing a turnover in 7 of 9 games. The addition of Jacoby Jones gives the Steelers the potential to rack up some extra points from a return touchdown score.
