Surgex Sports Fantasy Five: Week Ten
These are five fantasy sleepers you seriously need to consider starting week ten of the NFL season.
1. Danario Alexander (WR) San Diego Chargers
Head coach Norv Turner said that Alexander is going to play a “big” role in the Chargers offense moving forward. If he is available in your leagues pick him up. We can understand why you may be a bit reluctant to start him this week, but if you have a spot available you might want to throw him in the starting lineup right away. He had three catches for 61 yards last week and the 6’5 wide receiver has the size to be a red zone threat.
2. Brandon Myers (TE) Oakland Raiders
If Myers is still available in your league like he was in ours, pick him up! He had a monster week last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he is quickly becoming Carson Palmer’s favorite target. It’s looking more and more like Darren McFadden won’t be playing this week and the Raiders will likely be trying to come from behind against the Baltimore Ravens. Expect plenty of targets for Myers this week.
3. Brian Hartline (WR) Miami Dolphins
If you have a wide receiver facing off against the Tennessee Titans you should start them. Hartline isn’t close to being an elite level receiver, but he is the Dolphins number one receiver and has gained the trust of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Hartline is coming off an eight catch, 100 yard performance week nine so he is a safe bet to produce this week.
4. Indianapolis Colts Defense/Special Teams
Don’t look now, but the Indianapolis Colts are in the running for a playoff spot. A large part of that is due to rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, but credit also has to be given to their defense. The Colts defense has allowed just 15.3 points over their three game winning streak and they face off against a horrendous Jacksonville Jaguars offense.
5. Danny Amendola (WR) St. Louis Rams
Amendola is ready to return to the field week ten against the San Francisco 49ers. He will likely go right back to being Sam Bradford’s number one target. The Rams figure to be down early to the 49ers so Bradford will be throwing plenty of passes.
