Week 10 - DFS Values & Prop Bets
We are back to look towards the main slate on Sunday for our DFS value pieces. Both of us struggled this week while being close to hitting on top 12 with a couple of guys, but alas we just missed on them. On to week 10 and whom we both think will be the best plays for your $$$.

Tom Brady vs Washington $7600 (Andy)
The Bucs are coming off the bye week following a loss to the Saints. This is a good chance for Brady to ball out, and Washington is in the unfortunate position of being in his way. The only real question is how many yards will Brady throw for in this one? Our partners at Thrive have it at just over 300 and it may be low as Brady will be mad after that loss.
Carson Wentz vs Jaguars $5900 (Andy)
Jacksonville shocked everyone with their surprise victory over the Bills in week nine. Could they back it up again in week ten? It is possible, but Carson Wentz is in excellent form and has an excellent chance to continue this weekend. (Andy) Wentz at times though still has made some puzzling throws and the question is will he do it again? You can bet the over .5 INT with our partners at Thrive as the question each week is will he throw that one that has us scratching our heads. (Phil)
Matt Ryan vs Cowboys $6000 (Phil)
Matt Ryan has been producing as of late and that should continue in this tough matchup against the Cowboys. I expect both teams to continue to put up points and Ryan will be a good play yet again.
Teddy Bridgewater vs Eagles $5500 (Phil)
Teddy is 2 TDs away from setting a new career-high. He has found a groove as of late and while not flashy, continues to be solid and put up steady numbers averaging almost 18 ppg in fantasy.
Najee Harris vs Lions $7900 (Andy)
Harris registered his first points total under twenty for the first time since week two, but against the Lions, I would be shocked to see that again. Harris should be back up to the top of the leaderboards.
Devin Singletary (if Zack Moss sits) vs Jets $4700 (Andy)
Now, we all know that the lead rusher for the Bills is usually Josh Allen, but if Zack Moss sits this weekend, Singletary should have the opportunity to pick up more work against a Jets team that has been getting run on all season.
D’Ernest Johnson vs Patriots $4700 (Phil)
Nick Chubb is ruled out and Kareem Hunt is still on IR, Johnson is currently the only healthy RB on the roster right now as most are out with Covid. He should see the lion share of carries no matter who else is back and last time we saw him get the nod, he exploded, and I expect this to happen again.
James Conner vs Panthers $6300 (Phil)
James Conner leads all RBs with 11TDs and now that Edmonds will be side-lined for the next 3-5 weeks with the high ankle sprain he will get even more of the load and as we saw last week he can quickly pile up the points.
Michael Pittman vs Jaguars $6300 (Andy)
Pittman is back onto the main slate and back into this article. His cost has continued to rise since week one (when he was a little over $4k), and rightly so. The top target for the Colts has been excellent while producing some highlight-reel catches in the process. Wentz/Pittman stacks sound tempting this week.
Mike Evans vs Washington $6900 (Andy)
As we touched on earlier with Brady, this is a bounce-back opportunity for the Bucs. Evans contended with Lattimore when they played the Saints (and beat him for a touchdown) but should see more targets this weekend.
Elijah Moore vs Bills $4700 (Phil)
All offseason we heard report after report coming out of camp of how Elijah each day was making play after play and now it’s showing on the field. And now he’s starting to score and become a red zone threat. While it’s a tough matchup the Jets will look to put up points against that Bills D to try and repeat what the Jags did last week to the Bills and secure the upset.
Devonta Smith vs Broncos $5900 (Phil)
The Heisman winner continues to grow into his role and the chemistry with Jalen is growing each week. The Eagles have now figured out they need balance in the offense and it's benefitting Smith as they are taking shots with him and I expect this to continue against the Broncos D that is nursing some wounds despite their great showing against Dallas last week. This could be the week Devonta finally scores in back-to-back weeks. I think this is the week we see his breakout continue and another score happens.
Pat Freiermuth vs Lions $3900 (Phil & Andy)
He has been the fantasy darling for the last couple of weeks, and we should continue to play him while his cost is down, especially in a soft matchup versus the Lions. With Claypool now out with his toe injury, Pat is a smash start with his low cost.
Dan Arnold vs Colts $3500 (Andy)
Wentz/Pittman and bringing it back with Arnold could be in play this weekend. Arnold continues to receive many targets, and if he can turn some of these into touchdowns, more top TE finishes could be in his future.
Ryan Griffin vs Bills $2500 (Phil)
With Tyler Kroft now on IR, Griffin should continue for the next few weeks to see his role expand. Seeing 7 targets last week he should see the same amount this week as
