Week 10 is upon us and the playoff push has officially begun. While there aren’t many elite options at running back on bye this week, there are a few that you could have been relying on. Joe Mixon, David Montgomery, Khalil Herbert and many other backs aren’t able to save you this week if you’re still feeling the injury bug. So, who can help you out? Here are three fantasy football streamers options at running back for you to get a big-time win and survive another tough week.
Read on for three RB fantasy football streamers that are worth consideration for Week 10. In some cases, one might still be able to claim these rushers off of waivers. In order to be included in the fantasy football RB streamers article, they must be rostered in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues.
Fantasy Football Streamers | Week 10 RBs
Nyheim Hines | Indianapolis Colts (vs JAX)
Since the first three weeks of the fantasy season, Nyheim Hines has gone ice cold from a production standpoint. For whatever reason, the Colts gave him a ton of money to not get the ball. Rostered in just 42.5% of leagues, people are clearly waiting for the next group of weeks where Hines will surge. I’m here to tell you it’s happening right now.
Last week, Jonathan Taylor went absolutely ballistic with over 170 rushing yards and two touchdowns. What people seemed to gloss over was the fact that Hines had his best week of the season as well. One of the reasons Hines was so effective at the start of the year, and last week, was because of his involvement in the passing game. The last two weeks, Hines has had four receptions, and that trend will likely continue. The receptions alone make him a solid play, but add in the fact that the Colts should also run all over this Jacksonville Jaguars defense, and he becomes an even better option. The Colts will look to give Taylor some rest, allowing Hines to vulture some of his production.
Brandon Bolden | New England Patriots (vs CLE)
Last week was an interesting one for Brandon Bolden. Both Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson were injured in the game, which paved the way for more usage from Bolden. He finished with over 80 total yards and had his third fantasy performance in double-digits. Rostered in just 7% of leagues, Bolden is a good fantasy football streamers option for this week against the Cleveland Browns.
Out of the three games Bolden has had double-digit fantasy production, two of them were thanks to heavy usage in the passing game. Even if Harris and Stevenson are healthy, there won’t be much of any running success against the Browns. With Cleveland looking like a whole new team since the departure of Odell Beckham Jr., the Patriots will be playing from behind as well. All this adds up to plenty of looks for Bolden, and he should cash in more than any other back in this Patriots backfield.
Jordan Howard | Philadelphia Eagles (at DEN)
When will people get the memo on Jordan Howard? In a season where players are picked up after one fluke performance, Howard is still only rostered in 8.4% of fantasy leagues. In his two weeks of play for the Eagles, he has scored three touchdowns and combined for over 120 rushing yards. Miles Sanders will not be playing this week, so all signs point to the same workload and production as Howard’s had the past two weeks.
This week, while the Eagles do play the Denver Broncos. Denver gives up nearly 4.3 yards per carry to running backs. The best part of Jordan Howard’s fantasy value, is that he gets a fair amount of carries inside the red zone. Not only is Howard going to be able to produce with double-digit carries against a subpar rush defense, but he’ll also likely find the end zone. Finding the end zone alone will make him a worthy fantasy football streamer, so feel confident in what Howard can do for you this week.
The only thing scarier than the Browns’ pass rush are clowns. Get the design that shows off both today!
