TV:

It’s Thursday, and that means it’s the start of fantasy football Week 10. That also means it’s time once again for our Start-Sit recommendations for this round of games. We’ve got some byes and injuries to work around right now, so let’s see who made the list this week.

Start ‘Em:

Fantasy Football 2015: Week 10 Start/Sit

USA TODAY Sports

Jeremy Hill, RB, Cincinnati Bengals: Hill is usually good for a flex start, even with Giovani Bernard looming and splitting carries every game. They’re both no-hesitation starts this week, however, with the crummy Texans defense on the schedule. Look for a lot of work for both Hill and Bernard; much of it likely clock-chewing runs in garbage time.

Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins: If you’re in a bind this week at quarterback, Cousins provides an intriguing option as a fill-in. He gets the cupcake matchup against the Saints secondary, and you can pretty much bet the Redskins will forego their sketchy running game in favor of Cousins’ arm. We could see a shootout here.

Kamar Aiken, WR, Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens don’t have much to play for these days, but Aiken earns a definite start designation this week. With Steve Smith gone, he should be taking over as the team’s target leader, and will get a nice matchup against the Jaguars.
Aiken shouldn’t have much trouble getting into double-digit fantasy territory this week.

Sit ‘Em:

Chris Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals: It’ hard to bench Johnson now that he’s shown his stuff in Arizona this year. That said, he gets a horrid draw this week in Seattle against the Seahawks.
Over the last 17 games at home, the Seahawks have allowed just seven rushing touchdowns. Expect another low-scoring affair here and look elsewhere for fantasy production if you can.

Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seattle Seahawks: On the flipside of that Cardinals-Seahawks matchup is Lynch, who probably won’t provide much in the way of fantasy points. He’s coming off a decent Week 9, but will have more trouble finding running lanes in the Arizona front.
It’ll be a plodding effort with a minimum of positive rushes here, which really hurts Lynch’s fantasy value.

Amari Cooper, WR, Oakland Raiders: Cooper has been a great fantasy asset among the resurgent Raiders, but heading into a Week 10 game against the Vikings there are a lot of red flags out there.
Cooper has surrendered quite a few red-zone looks to Michael Crabtree, and with Minnesota’s top two corners playing well we’re expecting quite a few dink-and-dunk passing routes. Temper your expectations.
