Welcome to my quarterback rankings for Week 10 fantasy football.
It was a low scoring week for quarterbacks in Week 9, with just seven scoring more than 20 points, not helped by Aaron Rodgers’ positive COVID test and the late withdrawal of Kyle Murray. If you were lucky enough to roster Justin Herbert (31.64 points), Lamar Jackson (30.64 points) or the surprising Matt Ryan (28.52 points) then you were money this week, though outside of these guys, the quarterbacks weren’t winning you your fantasy match up in Week 9. My stream and DFS plays of the week went well, with my streamer Jimmy Garoppolo finishing as the QB8 with 19.34 points, and Lamar Jackson in DFS was a rock star this week.
We have another four teams on bye in Week 10 so there’s no Justin Fields, Tyrod Taylor, Joe Burrow or Daniel Jones to rank this week. I continue to look to build on what I’ve seen so far to give you my fantasy football quarterback rankings for this week, and will break down the key streamers (% rostered via Sleeper) and my favorite value DFS plays for the week ahead (price via DraftKings).
These rankings are subject to change throughout the week, so check back as any quarterback news drops to see how it is reflected in my rankings. If you have any specific quarterback rankings or starts and sits questions, drop them in the comments or you can get me @PaddiCooper on Twitter.
Stream of the Week: Taylor Heinicke vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (15% rostered)
The Buccaneers may have a fierce run defense, but they have been susceptible to the pass and have conceded the 10th most points to quarterbacks so far this season. Heinicke has been up and down this season, but has four 20+ point games under his belt and in a game where Washington are likely to have to play catch up, Heinicke could be a great spot start if you need a quarterback this week.
Alternative streamer – Teddy Bridgewater vs Philadelphia Eagles (30% rostered)
DFS Play of the Week: Tom Brady ($7,600) @ Washington Football Team
If Heinicke against the Buccaneers is a good spot start for this week, then Brady against the Washington defense has money written all over it. Brady is the QB1 in fantasy and against a team that is bottom 5 in points allowed to quarterbacks, should have another strong week, especially if he has Rob Gronkowski back to full speed.
Alternative DFS play – Dak Prescott ($6,900) vs Atlanta Falcons
