NFL Sunday Preview: Week 10

Rob Gronkowski #87 of the New England Patriots celebrates his touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts during the fourth quarter of the game at Lucas Oil Stadium on November 16, 2014 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Check out our Week 10 Sunday NFL picks before setting your line ups for Sunday’s games.

QB

 

Matt Stafford (Lions v Browns)

 

Stafford was terrific against the Packers and has thrown for nearly 800 yards combined with zero interceptions over the last two weeks.

The Browns are a mediocre pass defense but their horrific offense means their opponents have plenty of opportunities with short fields and often run out the clock at the end of games. Look for Stafford to light them up with another great performance.

Jared Goff (Rams v Texans)

Goff had some struggles in recent weeks, but he was incredible last week against the lowly Giants. He faces the Texans this week, who have dropped off significantly since the loss of Whitney Mercilus and JJ Watt to injury.

The main drop off has been through the air, where they conceded quality games to both Jacoby Brissett and Russell Wilson the last two weeks.

RB

 

Alvin Kamara (Saints @ Buccaneers)

The rookie Kamara made Adrian Peterson expendable, and has grabbed a sizable role for himself in the Saints offense, both as a runner and receiver. With Mark Ingram suffering a bout of fumble-itis last week, Kamara may see more carries going forward, although he likely won’t become a true lead back.

The Buccs have struggled with passing backs all season, due to a revolving door at linebacker and they haven’t faced many as dynamic as this one.

Leonard Fournette (Jaguars @ Chargers)

 

Fournette missed last week due to an odd benching partly related to missing team picture day. It seemed a crazy reason to bench the potential rookie of the year.

His last three performances have produced an average but 233 pts. The Chargers are the 31st ranked rushing defense in the league, making this a mouth watering match up potentially for Fournette.

WR

 

Terrance Williams (Cowboys v Falcons)

Williams had a great game against the Chiefs last week, and with Zeke Elliot suspended and Dez Bryant hobbled, he could receive some additional looks this week.

The Falcons have one excellent corner in Desmond Trufant, but he’ll likely be utilised almost exclusively on Dez, while second corner Robert Alford sometimes mans the slot. Williams could produce another big outing this week in what could be a high scoring game.

DeAndre Hopkins (Texans v Rams)

The injury to Deshaun Watson had little impact on Hopkins, who remains the number one receiver in fantasy this season.

Tom Savage looked Hopkins way time after time, with less efficiency than Watson, but ultimiately with just enough accuracy to secure a quality performance from Hopkins. There was little to suggest he cant repeat it this week.

 

TE

 

Rob Gronkowski (Patriots @ Broncos)

Gronkowski is the best tight end in football and the Broncos have been wretched defending the position over the past month.

It’s unlikely Tom Brady will test Denver’s elite trio of corners too often, meaning Gronk could see upwards of ten targets this week.

Evan Engram (Giants v 49ers)

 

Engram represents a single bright spot in a turgid Giants season that could result in them having a different coach, quarterback and general manager by the time September rolls around.

The rookier tight end has gone for three touchdowns in the last three weeks and should add another strong performance against the winless 49ers.
