Fantasy football Week 10 rankings: Who to start and sit

In your fantasy football playoff race, you probably need to get a win this week, so set your lineup with these Week 10 rankings.

We’ve reached double-digits in the NFL season and the regular season is halfway over for every team. For your fantasy team, there are probably just a few weeks left to get into the playoff position you need, so make sure to get the best team on the field that you can in Week 10.

Week 10 starts with a bummer of a matchup between the Browns and ex-Browns (now known as the Ravens) where hopefully we get at least a little intrigue. This weekend there are some better matchups including the Seahawks and Patriots on Sunday night football, the Broncos in the Big Easy to face the Saints, and the Cowboys and Steelers in a fun matchup in Pittsburgh.

Whatever matchup has you’re attention this week, you can find my start/sit rankings here on FanSided every week to help you get your fantasy lineup set for success this wee. For the rest of the year, my rankings will roll out each Thursday with only minor adjustments as injury situations change leading into the weekend. As adjustments are made heading into the weekend, the rankings on the following slides will update automatically, so drop a bookmark here or check back later for the newest information before kickoff on Sunday.

Also, make sure to set your bookmark on our fantasy football hub to get all the FanSided fantasy coverage each week and follow on Twitter @FansidedFantasy where I’ll let you know when new posts are available and do my best to answer any questions you have.

Throughout this season FanSided has been partnering with FantasyPros.com to bring you the rankings in a new, easy-to navigate format. You can also check out some great research tools over at FantasyPros, and we’re happy to be a part of their growing network. They also have enabled us to bring you a new tool that you can find in the menu bar anywhere on FanSided.com. It’s our start/sit tool which gives you specific advice for your team.

Thanks to the new tools you can see how my rankings stack up against the ECR (Expert Consensus Rankings) without having to surf to a bunch of other sites. Hopefully, this makes this weekly FanSided post a one-stop shop that can help you get your lineup set for Week 8 having to visit a ton of different sites.

The rankings on the following slides are my personal opinion on who you should start and sit this week. For each position, I’ve considered the opponent, expected workload, and overall risk of each player.

Remember, the Bills, Lions, Colts, and suddenly-surging Raiders are all on a bye this week in Week 10. Those players won’t be on the following slides since they all need to be on your bench this week. To see who you can’t leave on your bench, check out my Week 10 Rankings by scrolling through the following slides.
