Which of these storylines or situations to highlight as target/avoid DFS plays in Week 10:
- O.J. Howard is good to go by early reports, is he a squeaky wheel worth exploring with an ideal Arizona matchup?
- Mike Gesicki surged to his best game of the season in Week 9 with 6-95-0. Will he stay hot with Preston Williams out and a decent Colts matchup?
- Greg Olsen is affordably priced but is he a regression candidate (no touchdowns since Week 3) or low-volume enough to avoid for better options?
- Is Eric Ebron an ideal low-cost touchdown bet? The Dolphins are a strong matchup and Ebron has been held out of the end zone two straight weeks?
- Mark Andrews is a high-salary option and has gone four straight games without a touchdown with three relative dud games over the past four outings. Is he primed to bounce back to his early-season production against Cincinnati?
- Evan Engram, like Mark Andrews, has fallen off of late with his best games early in the season. Is Engram in a 'get well' spot against the Jets?
Andrews is having a cold streak, but the factors that made him a breakout star in the first month remain. Lamar Jackson has emerged. The offensive line is playing well. The offense moves up and down the field. And there aren't any (healthy) receivers to steal away target share from Andrews in the short zones or, more importantly, the red zone. He'll bounce back in a huge way in the coming weeks. Hopefully, his cold streak will keep his ownership low, making him an even better play.
It's hard to figure out what happened with Engram. Darius Slayton shouldn't be stealing targets from Engram, and I'm betting Engram will have positive regression over the final half of the season.
