It isn’t that unhealthy of every week for quarterback byes, as simply two of the 4 (Patrick Mahomes, Matt Ryan) are common fantasy starters (Jets and Cowboys QBs are additionally off), however our Week 10 fantasy QB rankings are nonetheless a bit tough. Robust matchups for a number of good/borderline QBs and favorable matchups for up-and-own signal-callers may have homeowners questioning which sleepers they will belief and which potential busts, if any, they need to follow. 

Lamar Jackson (@ Patriots), Tom Brady (@ Panthers), Drew Brees (vs. 49ers), Ryan Tannehill (vs. Colts), Matthew Stafford (vs. Washington), Joe Burrow (@ Steelers), and Cam Newton (vs. Ravens) all have powerful matchups on paper, however Jackson continues to be a must-start and each Brady and Brees have too many weapons to actually be off-limits. The opposite 4 are most likely finest left on benches, although.

Rising as much as probably take their spots are Jared Goff (vs. Seahawks), Derek Carr (vs. Broncos), Baker Mayfield (vs. Texans), and Carson Wentz (@ Giants). If you wish to go a little bit deeper, you’ll be able to strive your luck with Drew Lock (@ Raiders), Tua Tagovailoa (vs. Chargers), Philip Rivers (@ Titans), Nick Foles (vs. Vikings), Alex Smith (@ Lions), and Nick Mullens (@ Saints). The latter three are most likely finest left to two-QB leagues, however Lock, Tagovailoa, and Rivers are in play in deep single leagues.

One factor to observe is Mayfield’s standing. He is been positioned on the COVID record after shut contact with somebody who examined optimistic. So long as Mayfield does not take a look at optimistic, he’ll play this week (like Matthew Stafford final week), however clearly his lack of early-week apply reps could possibly be sufficient of a motive to be fearful about him regardless of a good matchup.

Although it is a more durable week for QBs, there are nonetheless sufficient worthwhile choices that you simply should not take a nasty rating there. Do not be afraid to play the matchups in case your traditional starter is in a nasty scenario.

Be aware: Examine again all through the week, as we’ll proceed to replace our QB rankings up till kickoff primarily based on the newest information and damage updates.
