Our Week 10 lineup had some bright spots from Brock Purdy, Bijan Robinson, and Mike Evans, but overall, it was one of our poorer results of the year. Four skill-position players ending with single-digit fantasy points will do that to you, but we’re still finishing in the black 67% of the time for the 2023 season.
FanDuel’s main contest this week is again a $1.2M pool that awards $200k to first place, and we’ll be going back to the well for another chance at the big payday.
Love has leveled off in fantasy production over his last four starts, hitting 15+ points three times and accounting for six touchdowns. In games against Pittsburgh and Denver, two friendly passing defenses, Love combined for 469 yards and four touchdowns while adding 32 yards on the ground.
This week, the Chargers’ 32nd-ranked pass defense travels to Lambeau as the latest challenge for Love and the Packers. Combined with LA’s willingness to throw on offense, where they rank eighth in passing, we like this game to produce multiple scoring chances for both teams and will take Love at this cap number.
Both these players were candidates for high-value options that swung fantasy matchups or DFS results in Week 10, and there’s a good chance that will happen again this Sunday. Robinson Jr. caught a career-best six passes and rumbled for 119 receiving yards and a touchdown in those opportunities against Seattle.
His enticing matchup with the Giants at home this week is a great chance to string together 20-point weeks. Let's take a flyer on B-Rob to have another great outing.
Singletary ran 30 times for 150 yards and a touchdown in Houston’s impressive road win against Cincy. He’s enjoying time in the spotlight for an emerging offense while Dameon Pierce remains sidelined and gets Arizona’s 28th-ranked run defense at home in Week 11.
Diggs is 2nd in the league in targets per game (10.78) ahead of Buffalo’s Monday night clash with Denver. He has not had fewer than six catches in a game this season and torched the Jets for 10 receptions, 102 yards, and a touchdown in Week 1.
Kirk has re-emerged as the favorite pass-catcher for Trevor Lawrence and has scored double-digit fantasy points in seven of his last eight games. The two fumbles he’s given away against New Orleans and San Francisco recently are worth noting, but in a nice spot against Tennessee at home, we expect him to continue to garner the looks from Lawrence.
Reed is a make-or-break kind of player in this lineup. He could disappear for one catch and seven yards like he did against the Raiders or light up the field with a long touchdown catch as he did against Pittsburgh. A little volatility can put this lineup over the top, and we could see that from the combo of Love and Reed.
Kmet now ranks fifth among tight ends in receptions and second in receiving TDs during the best season of his career.
He’s seen 25 targets in three games against the Chargers, Saints, and Panthers and has a solid rapport with current starter Tyson Bagent. It could be another excellent day for Kmet against the friendly Lions’ defense on Sunday.
Fresh off his bye week, Mostert faces the 29th-best rushing defense in the league at home. His more modest scoring numbers in the last month have come against respectable run defenses in Philly, New England, and KC.
This week should be his best chance for a breakout since he scored 41.7 points against Denver in late September.
Speaking of bye week refreshers, San Francisco looked like themselves with five sacks and four takeaways in a dominant performance against Jacksonville after their home loss to Cincy before a week off.
They should be able to handle a poor rushing attack from Tampa Bay and force Baker Mayfield into difficult situations en route to another strong fantasy day this Sunday.
