Fantasy Football Week 10 RB Sleepers
Every week, we try to help you find RB sleepers that have great matchups that could make the difference between victory or defeat in your fantasy football matchup. To make the list, these RB sleepers have to be unowned in at least 50% of Yahoo! leagues. For deep leaguers, we find one guy available in at least 90% of leagues. Good luck, and as always, if I screw anything up, I will return every penny you paid me for my opinions.
Week 10 RB Sleeper: Elijah McGuire versus Buffalo (15% owned)
The Jets were careful to work McGuire back into action last week, and by “careful to work back into action” I mean, “let him out snap and out-produce Isaiah Crowell (who sucks) on a per-touch basis.” Elijah was supposed to be Bilal Powell, but he went and ended up on IR. He’s back now, and you have to transfer whatever Powell feel-goods you had onto McGuire. This week, he gets a Buffalo Bills run defense that allows the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs. He should stay on your bench until this becomes a trend, but throwing a guy into your lineup with one data point to support your hunch is peak fantasy football RB sleepers territory.
Week 10 RB Sleeper: Josh Adams versus Dallas (12% owned)
Speaking of a limited sample size, Josh Adams had nine of his career twenty carries last weekend against Jacksonville, and he looked like the best running back out of the Eagles backfield. Clement and Smallwood have underwhelmed, and Sproles is hurt again, so it could be his time to shine in this NFC East matchup (that is probably, without looking, on SNF, or at worst, America’s Game of the Week). The Cowboys spent last week getting chewed up and spit out by Dion Lewis and …Derrick Henry (ugh), and will be without Sean Lee this week. Josh Adams should start showing up on RB sleepers lists everywhere, if not on waiver wire articles. Much like Courtland Sutton two weeks ago, this could be the next hot waiver wire pickup that costs you nothing to acquire.
Week 10 RB Sleeper: Kapri Bibbs at Tampa Bay (2% owned)
Last week Bibbs came through with the exact number of fantasy points I would have been happy with for a stream (ten points in half-PPR). He had only three carries for 20 yards and a score, but that was with fewer injured players on the Washington roster. As the bodies of the fallen pile up around him, he rises, his thirst quenched by their spilled blood. Bibbs should, once again, serve as the change-of-pace back to Adrian Peterson in Chris Thompson’s absence. The Buccaneers defense he faces this week has already given up 14 touchdowns to opposing running backs and has averaged two scores a game to the position in the last three games. Bibbs is one of those short-term RB sleepers that should be used when he pops up, but should immediately fall back off your roster for better players.
