Fantasy Football 2015: Week 10 Start/Sit
Who to Start and Who to Sit in Fantasy Football Week 10
November 12, 2015
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.

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.
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.
