Bold Predictions for Week 10 Fantasy Football
It’s that time of the week again. Time to make a bold bet, a crazy choice, a daring decision…Time for our Bold Predictions for Week 10 Fantasy Football. Let’s jump in.
1.) Mike Davis outscores Todd Gurley
By Gurley’s standards, he had a down week last week, scoring only 14 points in standard formats, and having his worst game of the year. It’s quite the accomplishment when your worst game of the season is 14 points, and the rest of your games you’ve scored 20 or more. With that said, we expect it to be another down week for Gurley as his Rams face their division rival Seahawks. And to make things a little spicy, we are also expecting Seahawks running back Mike Davis, who should see a huge increase in carries if starter Chris Carson is out, to have a better week than Gurley. That’s right, the Seahawks back up running back is going to have a better game then the leagues front runner to win Offensive Player of the Year.
2.) Leonard Fournette rushes for over 100 yards
Anyone who drafted Leonard Fournette in the first round hoping to get RB1 production has been severely disappointed this season. He’s missed the majority of the season with a hamstring injury, and has been a complete burden on fantasy managers. Most have probably traded him away, but for those of you that kept him, his time might finally be here. Coming out of the BYE week, Leonard Fournette was a full participant in practice Wednesday. That’s a great sign for Fournette owners, and with a good match up against their divisional opponent the Indianapolis Colts, Fournette’s time to shine is here. We’re boldly predicting that despite his injury, and despite the trade for Carlos Hyde, Leonard Fournette is going to ball out, and rush for over 100 yards.
3.) Josh Adams goes for 20+ in PPR formats
The Eagles backfield has been a mess for fantasy owners all season, but that might finally be coming to an end. After having to decide between Jay Ajayi, Wendall Smallwood, and Corey Clement all year, Ajayi’s unfortunate injuries made the choice a bit easier. Nobody really stood out though, or became “the guy” for the Eagles. Smallwood and Clement have both had productive games, sure, but neither one of them took the backfield as their own. The Eagles needed someone to fill the void left by Ajayi, and have a big bodied guy who could get them tough yardage, and wear down their opponents.
Enter Josh Adams.
Finishing with 9 carries for 61 yards in their victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the undrafted rookie Josh Adams looked great converting 3rd & shorts for the Eagles. There was a nail biting review on what could have been a costly fumble, but the tape showed he was down by contact. Pederson addressed this in his post game interview, saying he spoke with Adams, and that “…it comes down to a little experience.” The rookie has plenty of opportunity to gain that experience this week as the Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys in Philadelphia. The Cowboys got gashed on the ground last week against the Titans, and the Eagles offense is much better than theirs. We’re expecting Josh Adams to be heavily involved around the goal line, and come out of this week as one of the surprise top scorers.
