2016 Draft Kit

Week 10 early fantasy football rankings: QB, RB, WR, TE, FLEX, K, DEF

There are more Ps and Qs next to player names this week than I’d like to count. It seems like a lot more than I remember from other seasons. But it also seems like questionable players play more often.

You’ll want to figure out if you want to play players from tonight’s Bills-Jets game.

It’s projected to be the fifth-lowest scoring game of the week, but there quite a few fantasy implications for both season-long and weekly players. I went over the biggest matchups in our projected scores/Las Vegas column.

As always check late NFL news at a site like Rotoworld to make sure games are being played and players are in lineups.

Our rankings will be updated early Sunday morning and don’t always reflect final starting lineups.

Early rankings notes


Not as many surprises here as I expected. It seems like the rest of the industry is pretty high on Derek Carr and Blake Bortles this week. I guess the one surprise is that we have Kirk Cousins a couple steps higher than the rest. I went over the reasons in our projected scores column linked above.

Running backs

As I predicted in our projected scores column, Tom Brady is our top quarterback and Todd Gurley is our No. 1 running back.

No huge surprises here. Maybe Darren McFadden in the top five against Tampa Bay and Lamar Miller ahead of him in fourth place playing against the Eagles. Both backs have turned into featured players who receive lot of carries and targets regardless of game script.

Wide receivers

Ok, no we probably have your attention. Allen Robinson No. 1? Believe it. I think it was on Football Guys’ podcast The Audible two weeks ago, one of the hosts called Robinson a bully. He’s not going to be able to stand up to the Vontae Davises or the Josh Normans, but against a run-of-the-mill secondary he’s going to absolutely destroy. The Ravens can’t stop the pass, so this is a prime spot for Robinson to go ballistic.

Another player you might balk at is Stefon Diggs inside the top-10. Oakland has allowed 101.8 yards per game to No. 1 wide receivers, the second-most in the NFL.

Tight ends

The biggest surprise here is Tyler Eifert all the way down at 8th. Yes, that’s still a starting tight end in your fantasy league, but it seems too low. I expect his ranking to climb by Sunday, after we peel away a few more layers on this Week 10 thing.
