Week 10 DraftKings Tournament Picks
Jared Goff ($6,500)
Goff has the nut matchup going up against the Seahawks’ 29th ranked pass defense that has given up a QB1 in every game on the season besides vs. the Vikings.
Goff has had a few ceiling performances this season with 24+ DK points in 3 games, including 31.2 on the road against the Bills back in Week 3.
I expect another monster performance from Goff in Week 10. He’s a virtual lock for 300+ yards and should be able to accumulate 2+ pass TDs. Goff has been priced at $6,500 or more in 4 of his past 5 games, so at just $6,500 this week he’s an exceptional value play against a historically bad pass defense.
James Robinson ($6,600)
Robinson has been a machine this season with double digit fantasy points in every game, including multiple performances of 30+ DK points.
He has 22 and 25 carries in his past 2 and now faces a Packers defense that ranks 22nd against the run.
Priced as the RB7, Robinson has plenty of upside even with the Jags 13.5-point underdogs at Lambeau Field.
Robinson should go relatively low owned this week with Aaron Jones ($7,100) and Chase Edmonds ($6,300) expected to soak up a lot of the RB ownership.
Chase Edmonds ($6,300)
Edmonds had 28 touches in Week 9 against the Dolphins and his price went down $500 as he was only able to muster 70 rushing yards and 18 receiving yard on 25 carries and 3 catches.
With a projected ceiling of 18.8 DK points and playing against the 22nd ranked Buffalo defense, Edmonds was chalky and busted in Week 9 — so I’ll go right back to him in Week 10.
Playing over 90% of the snaps, Edmonds is the clear workhorse RB in Arizona and fits well on DK with 29 receptions on the season.
Edmonds will probably come in high owned again this week, but I am going to aggressively target him in at least 35% of my DK GPP lineups.
Robert Woods ($6,600)
Woods is priced as the WR10 and gets a juicy matchup against the Seahawks, who have given up the most DK points to opposing WRs on the season.
Woods has only gone for 100+ yards once on the season — back in Week 1 against the Cowboys — but has been solid overall with 37-436-4 on the year. Woods also has sneaky rushing upside as he has added 16-108-2 on the ground.
In a game with a total of 55.5 points, I expect a back and forth affair between the Rams and Seahawks and I think Woods has a great shot of 100+ yards and a score.
John Brown ($5,300)
Brown looked explosive in Week 9’s matchup against Seattle, parlaying 8 catches into a season-high 99 yards. He could have had a much bigger game but was tackled inside the 1-yard line.
The Cardinals rank 11th in pass defense but haven’t played against too many formidable opponents. Bills-Cardinals has the highest over/under on the Week 10 slate.
Coming off an 11-target performance, Brown could continue to build some positive momentum as he should see easier coverage with Stefon Diggs often commanding double teams.
Austin Hooper ($3,900)
Hooper ranks 2nd in our dollars-per-point rankings in a gross TE week with no Travis Kelce or George Kittle on the slate.
Hooper missed the past 2 games with a surprise appendectomy surgery. Prior to surgery, Hooper had 5 catches in 3 consecutive games with target totals of 6, 10 and 7.
The matchup is a good one as the Texans rank 22nd against TEs and 23rd in overall pass defense.
Coming off a 38-3 demolition of the Bucs, the Saints are heavy 9.5-point favorites against the 49ers, who have been ravaged by injuries this season.
The Saints defense completely dominated the Bucs offensive line in Week 9 with 3 sacks, 3 INTs and only 3 points allowed.
The Bucs have by far the best trio of WRs in the league with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown. The Saints now play a 49ers team that will likely be without Deebo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne.
The Saints should have no problem building an early lead and then should be able to tee off against Nick Mullens, who struggled mightily in Week 9’s loss to the Packers.
The Saints have 3+ sacks in 6 of 8 games and should get there again with the 49ers expected to be trailing.
