Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344885 Sit ’em – Darrius Heyward-Bey vs SD Sit+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+Darrius+Heyward-Bey+vs+SD Fantasy Football

I don’t like goose eggs from my WR1 or my WR2, but those who started the wide out against Denver in Week 9 received a big fat zero in the fantasy points column. What concerns me more is the one measly target DHB received from Carson Palmer. I was buying DHB stock when Jason Campbell was healthy, but when Palmer targets Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore 18 times, my position is downgraded to “hold” in Week 10. Update: Considering he was healthy, now may be the time to dump DHB after the Raiders' win over the Chargers. Hue Jackson seems to be focusing Carson's attention on Ford (when healthy) and Moore along with the running game. — Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344880 Start ’em – Michael Bush vs SD Start+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+Michael+Bush+vs+SD Fantasy Football

Those owners who were smart to pick up Bush as insurance were rewarded handsomely in Week 9. He finished with 132 total yards with a touchdown. Since his rookie season in 2008, when Bush has carried the ball 16 or more times in a game he has racked up 90 or more rushing yards in eight out of nine games. I compare Oakland’s running back situation to when the Chargers had the two-headed monster of LT and Michael Turner. With Taiwan Jones creating little pressure as his backup, look for Bush to have another solid game against San Diego. UPDATE: I hope you all enjoyed the 30 fantasy points Bush provided on Thursday night.  This guy is a beast.  It's too bad DMC will cut into his production once he returns. — Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344884 Sit ’em – Andy Dalton vs PIT Sit+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+Andy+Dalton+vs+PIT Fantasy Football

Should we give more credit to Dalton for engineering a stunner of a season in Cincinnati or for putting up with the whole Red Rifle moniker? Either way, Dalton has impressed fantasy owners over the past four games. He’s averaged 22 completions, 33 attempts and 207 passing yards per game. During that stretch, he’s tossed eight touchdowns and only three picks. However, I think we sit Dalton this week. Chances are, he started the season as your second-string fantasy quarterback or bye-week replacement. Rosters are at full strength in Week 10, and Dalton’s matchup against the Steelers doesn’t scream must start. Avoid him if you can. — Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344876 Start ’em – Brent Celek vs. ARI Start+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+Brent+Celek+vs.+ARI Fantasy Football

In the Eagles’ third, fourth and fifth games this season combined, Celek posted these stats: four receptions for 17 yards with no touchdowns. Over the past three games, however, Philly has remembered the tight end was on the field — he’s racked up 196 yards on 18 receptions with two touchdowns. The Cardinals rank 29th in the league in pass defense and, on average, are surrendering 7.7 fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. — Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344882 Sit ’em – BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs. NYJ Sit+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+BenJarvus+Green-Ellis+vs.+NYJ Fantasy Football

Since allowing BJGE to rush for 136 yards and two touchdowns in Week 5, the Jets rush defense has allowed only an average of 103 rushing yards per game over the past three contests. That shaves 20 rush yards off their season average. Add to that the presence of Stevan Ridley, Danny Woodhead and — when healthy — Kevin Faulk, and I’m not picturing a repeat rushing performance from Green-Ellis. Tom Brady will have to win the game with his arm. — Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344886 Start ’em – Damian Williams vs. CAR Start+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+Damian+Williams+vs.+CAR Fantasy Football

With Nate Washington expected to play against the Panthers and no teams on bye in Week 10, my suggestion to start Williams is directed toward owners in deeper leagues. Matt Hasselbeck is spreading the wealth in the Tennessee passing game. Last week, he completed passes to nine different receivers. The reason Williams gets the nod is because over the team’s past four games, he’s been targeted 27 times — including four in Week 7 when he left the game with concussion-like symptoms. Plus, he’s a red-zone target for Hasselbeck. — Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344879 Sit ’em – Earl Bennett vs. DET Sit+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+Earl+Bennett+vs.+DET Fantasy Football

Welcome back, Earl Bennett. Now, take a seat on the bench. Against the Eagles on Monday night, in his first game since Sept. 18, the wide receiver caught all five passes thrown his way and racked up 95 yards with a touchdown. Consider, however, that he was one of nine receivers to catch a Jay Cutler pass. Plus, for the first time in what seems like forever, Cutler remained upright and wasn’t sacked. Expect that to change with a vicious Lions pass rush and a solid secondary blanketing Bennett. — Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344883 Start ’em – Antonio Brown vs. CIN Start+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+Antonio+Brown+vs.+CIN Fantasy Football

I believe we are witnessing a changing of the guard at wide receiver in Pittsburgh. When Hines Ward went down in Week 7 with an ankle injury, it opened the door for Brown to live up to the preseason fantasy hype. Over his past three games, he’s caught 21 balls for 280 yards with a touchdown. He leads the Steelers in targets with 73, 10 more than Mike Wallace. Ward says he’ll play Sunday, but look for Brown to play a larger role in the offense than the veteran. — Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344887 Sit ’em – Marshawn Lynch vs. BAL Sit+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+Marshawn+Lynch+vs.+BAL Fantasy Football

We’ll keep this short and sweet. The Ravens are allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs, allow an average of 86.8 rushing yards per game and are second in the NFL in scoring defense with an average of 16.3 points per game. Seattle’s offense, meanwhile, is averaging 15.3 points per game. ‘Nough said. — Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 10 fantasy football start em sit em 30344881 Start ’em – Laurent Robinson vs. BUF Start+%26rsquo%3Bem+%26ndash%3B+Laurent+Robinson+vs.+BUF Fantasy Football

Heading into the 2011 season, Robinson had one game in which he hauled in 100 yards or more. In six games with the Cowboys this season, he has two — 116 yards against the Lions and 103 against the Eagles. He’s averaging more than five targets and four receptions per game. With Miles Austin likely sidelined again with a hamstring injury, Robinson slides into the starting lineup opposite Dez Bryant. Although the Bills secondary has improved, the it allows an average of 260 passing yards per game (25th in NFL). — Ryan Fowler
