While Fantasy Football and real NFL games have their differences, they share one common theme: If a player goes off in fantasy it usually means he went off in the real game as well. For Week 10, here are the players with the best chances to dominate their opponents. These players, due to their HistorySituation, and Matchups could be extremely valuable to their teams this week with their monster performances. 

Facts To Know:

  • Threw for 236 PASS YDS and ran for 152 YDS last meeting
  • Also the lead rusher on the Baltimore Ravens
  • Cincinnati Bengals have not won a game
 

After defeating the undefeated New England Patriots, Lamar Jackson is playing the only team to not have a win this season. In the last meeting between these two teams, Jackson had 33.0 fantasy points and did not even throw a touchdown. Jackson did run for a touchdown, and with his passing and receiving stats, was able to still have a dominant game. With only two rushing touchdowns less than No.1 RB Mark Ingram, Jackson leads his team in rushing yards, and has more rushing yards than four NFL teams. Look for a great opportunity this week for Lamar Jackson to have a big game as a passer AND as a runner.

Honorable Mention: Drew Brees, NO (v.ATL)

Facts To Know:

  • Most RUSH TD in NFL
  • Most Yds From Scrimmage in NFL
  • GB has allowed 10 rushing TDs
 

Truly the most productive player in the league, Christian McCaffrey has been having a stellar year. That shouldn’t change on Sunday vs. Green Bay. Mccaffrey is averaging 110 rushing yards per game, and has 13 total touchdowns on the year. Getting 92.5 percent of offensive snaps, McCaffrey is a big threat to make a play every time he’s out there. It is not only on rushing attempts, but out of the backfield as a receiver as well. In addition to the great opportunity he has in front of him on a weekly basis (most touches in the NFL), he’s also matched up against the Green Bay Packers (28th ranked against the run) in Week 10. There is great potential for a MVP-caliber performance out of McCaffrey.

Facts To Know:

  • Leads NFL w/ 875 REC YDS 
  • Drew Brees’ 2nd week back from injury
  • Atlanta Falcons are ranked 29th against WRs
 

Despite having two different Quarterbacks this season, Michael Thomas has not shown any sign of slowing down. Thomas leads all Wide Receivers in receiving yards and receptions. Only with four touchdowns on the year, Thomas makes up for it with yardage and receptions. When Teddy Bridgewater was the starting Quarterback for 5 games, Thomas had produced 551 yards on 42 receptions. Now, back from injury and a bye week, Drew Brees and Michael Thomas have high potential against the fifth most points allowed defense (250) Atlanta Falcons. 

Honorable Mention: DaVante Adams, GB (v.CAR)

Facts To Know:

  • Most REC YDs for Tight Ends
  • 91.2% of offensive snap share; Mahomes 1st game back
  • Tennessee Titans ranked 17th against TEs
 

Travis Kelce is leading all tight ends this year with the most receiving yards, and that is with two different Quarterbacks under center. Patrick Maholmes has been practicing fully this week and is looking to return from injury. Either way, Kelce also leads all Tight Ends in most red zone targets at 14. Kelce leads the Kansas City Chiefs in reception, targets, and receiving yards. The Tennessee Titans defense are in the middle of the pack against Tight Ends, but this matchup looks to be in Kelce’s favor with his high target share.

Facts to Know:

  • Leads NYG in RUSH YDs 
  • O-Line ranked 22nd in Adj. RUSH Yds
  • NYJ tied for fifth most TDs allowed to RBs
 

Saquon Barkley has had some trouble producing his usual numbers since his injury, however it is more on the offensive line. The New York Giants offensive line is ranked 22nd in the league in terms of total offense. With missing three games, Barkley leads the team in rushing yards and can catch the ball out of the backfield. The ability to get him into open space is where Barkley excels as he has had 6+ receptions for over 50 yards the last two weeks. Matching up against the New York Jets defense (tied for the fifth most Rushing Touchdowns allowed) is good opposition for Barkley to get back to producing his stats we have seen in the past. 

Honorable Mention: RB Derrick Henry, TEN (v.KC)
