Week 10

Note: The charts show my comfort level for starting each player at that position.  If you see a “+” sign next to a player, that means I can see them playing better than the level I have them listed at.  I tend to rank players at their floors, so no minus signs will be necessary.  Read through the comments for each game to get the detail behind the charts.  Good luck!

Comments:

Chargers are coming in with momentum on both sides of the ball and facing a vulnerable Raiders defense.  Start Philip Rivers as your QB1.

Melvin Gordon is back in our good graces as an RB2.  Ekeler is an RB2 in PPR leagues.

Keenan Allen has been frustrating of late but remains a WR2 with upside.

Mike Williams remains a big play boom/bust WR3 with upside.

Hunter Henry is playing fantastic as our TE1.

The Chargers defense is streamable with Bosa and Ingram playing great right now.

Derek Carr has QB2 value in Superflex leagues.

Josh Jacobs can be your fringe RB1, best used as your RB2.

Tyrell Williams is healthy and can be your WR3 with upside.  Revenge game?

Darren Waller remains a must start TE1.

Hunter Renfrow has scored in the last two games and enters our WR3/Flex range.

Jalen Richard is an interesting PPR RB2/Flex option with so many teams on BYE. The Raiders may have to abandon the run at some point.

I’m banking on the Chargers offense doing as they please, with Oakland playing catch up.
