Week 10? ALREADY?! It’s truly amazing how fast the NFL season goes by, almost like a Mike Wallace slant to the house. A blur. If you’re still reading fantasy football articles, then you still have a shot at the playoffs. Let’s take a look at a few non-obvious fantasy starters who may just put you over the top this week.
Rob Kelley, RB, WAS
Matt Jones is healthy now, and yet Kelley was announced this week as the first string running back. The matchup is daunting with the Vikings coming to town, but I still like Kelley for 60-70 yards from scrimmage and a short yardage TD.
J.J. Nelson, WR, ARI
Nelson has been on this list before, and hasn’t disappointed. Seeing a whopping 19 targets in his last two games, Bruce Arians announced today that Nelson is officially the Cardinals new WR2. Against the Niners secondary, giddy up.
Kenny Britt, WR, LA
Britt is the unquestioned WR1 for the Rams, and I see no way LA gets any run game going against the Jets Dline. Assuming a minimum of eight targets against a porous Jets secondary, Britt has a decent floor and a huge ceiling this week.
Austin Hooper, TE, ATL
Hooper gets another start with Jacob Tamme on the shelf, and the rookie looks to mimic last weeks stat line of 5/48/1. I played him last week in my main league with Tyler Eifert on a bye, and he didn’t disappoint. Hooper ran a 4.72 40 at the combine and showed elite athleticism for a TE, and with Matty Ice playing out of his mind, he’s a great dart throw.
