Fantasy Football: Packers pack the picks

By Sean Reis

For Week 10, as per usual, I have suggested the minimum players at each position below, but also suggest drafting Andy Dalton, Darren McFadden or Delanie Walker, depending on your weekly budgeting. Good luck!

Quarterback:

Aaron Rodgers ($7,500) — The Green Bay Packers are currently on a two-game losing streak. This is not characteristic of the team, nor is it characteristic of Rodgers, and I expect him to lead the team, bouncing back in Week 10 against a division rival, the Detroit Lions.

Running Backs:

DeAngelo Williams ($6,500) — DeAngelo was the fantasy football king this past week and although I do not expect the same performance in Week 10, he filled in well for Le’Veon Bell as I predicted and I will continue to trust DeAngelo going forward. Important to note as well, DeAngelo received a $1,000 price increase, but I still suggest drafting him.

Karlos Williams ($3,800) — Another Williams RB, Karlos returned to the spotlight this past week when he had to play for the injured LeSean McCoy. Currently, there is no update on McCoy’s injury, but at $3,800, I trust Karlos because McCoy will have less time to recover since Buffalo is playing on Thursday Night Football.

Wide Receivers:

Randall Cobb ($6,700) — If Rodgers leads the team to their first victory in three weeks, he will be looking for Cobb to make plays. Playing Detroit, I expect Rodgers, Cobb and the rest of the Green Bay offense to flourish in Week 10 and I highly recommend drafting Cobb, as well as Rodgers.

Brandin Cooks ($6,000) — Drew Brees has been a machine the past two weeks and Cooks has been one of his top weapons. At $6,000, Cooks certainly runs a risk, but he has chemistry with his QB and I trust him to continue his string of strong performances in Week 10.

Allen Hurns ($4,500) — Despite a strained foot, I have included Hurns for Week 10. Hurns has had a touchdown in the past six weeks, an insane streak, which I predict he will continue, as long as he fights the injury in Week 10.

Tight End:

Tyler Eifert ($5,800) — Eifert is slightly overpriced this week, which is why I also suggested Walker, but Eifert has been one of Dalton’s favorite targets all season. A.J. Green can’t catch all of the balls in Cincinnati and I trust him in Week 10.

Defense:

Green Bay Packers ($3,200) — While I predict the Green Bay offense will bounce back in Week 10, I also like their defense, especially against Matthew Stafford leading a struggling Detroit Lions offense.
