Week 10 NFL DFS Picks for FanDuel


Dak Prescott ($8,100)

The Cowboys vs. Falcons matchup is the game to prioritize in DFS this week, coming in at a slate high 55.0 point total. Despite the tough schedule, Dak Prescott has posted multiple touchdown passes in 5 straight games. He’ll get a much softer matchup this week against a Falcons defense allowing 27.5 points per game. Prescott will get Michael Gallup back from injured reserve as well to join the elite receiver tandem of Lamb and Cooper.

Matt Ryan ($7,300)

On the other side of the aforementioned matchup, you get Matt Ryan coming in at an appealing $7,300 salary. Even without wideout Calvin Ridley, Ryan has reached 330 yards in 3 of his last 4 weeks. Playing against a Dallas defense that has allowed the eighth-most passing yards per game, Ryan is a strong value play on the site.

Other NFL DFS Options: Josh Allen ($8,700), Tom Brady ($8,300), Justin Herbert ($8,000)

Running Backs

Dalvin Cook ($8,500)

While Najee Harris and Jonathan Taylor will grant high ownership at $9,400 and are solid plays, Dalvin Cook may fall under the radar this week. The Vikings workhorse holds similar upside to the top-tier running backs and faces off against a weak Chargers run defense. He has racked up strong rushing yard numbers although the touchdowns have been lacking. With this week’s matchup holding the second-highest total of the slate, Cook will have a perfect opportunity to get back on track.

James Conner ($7,000)

James Conner has enjoyed a breakout season on the Cardinals this year. With 2 rushing touchdowns in Week 9, he now leads the league with 10 rushing scores. Despite Conner’s success, the Cardinals backfield has operated in a timeshare all season, splitting work with Chase Edmonds. With Edmonds placed on IR this week, Conner is a legitimate RB1 in this elite offense. Arizona is second in the league with 28 red zone trips and third in rushing attempts when inside the 20. Conner’s volume and touchdown upside make him an excellent play in DFS this week.

D’Ernest Johnson ($5,400)

With Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt out once again, D’Ernest Johnson is basically gifted to you on FanDuel this week. In his breakout game in Week 7, Johnson totaled 168 yards and a touchdown against a stout Broncos defense. He will have another tough matchup against the Patriots but his upside is too high to pass up. At just $5,400, he will easily be one of the most owned players on the slate.

Other NFL DFS Options: Najee Harris ($9,400), Leonard Fournette ($7,400), Michael Carter ($6,100), Mark Ingram ($5,500)

Wide Receivers

A.J. Brown ($7,600)

After a slow start to the season, A.J. Brown has returned to form in recent weeks. He’s boasting a whopping 36% target share on the season, inflated by Julio Jones’ and Derrick Henry’s injuries. This week he’ll play against a Saints team that is primarily vulnerable through the air. Although Brown will likely see shadow coverage from Marshon Lattimore, he’s way too cheap for the volume he’s expected to receive.

Mike Evans ($7,400)

With the injuries to the Buccaneers receiving core, Mike Evans has been the one healthy weapon for Tom Brady. Gronkowski, Brown, and Miller have already been ruled out, so Mike Evans should see a ton of volume in this offense. The Buccaneers are a team to target this week as they play against the last ranked Washington pass defense. Evans has proven to be a tournament-winning player this season, catching multiple touchdowns in 3 of his 8 games played.

Mike Williams ($6,900)

Mike Williams exploded out of the gate this season, looking like the top Chargers receiver ahead of even Keenan Allen. Since then, Williams has failed to show up, posting just 5 targets and 2 receptions in 3 straight games. His salary has also taken a massive hit as he is now cheaper than Keenan Allen ($7,200) for the first time in weeks. Against the Eagles, we must cut Williams some slack as he was shadowed by cornerback Darius Slay all game. Look for him to break out of his slump this weekend, as he plays against a Vikings secondary that we’ve been picking on all year.

Michael Gallup ($5,500)

Michael Gallup returns this week from a calf injury that has held him out since Week 1. At just $5,500, Gallup will be a perfect contrarian play for those that don’t want to pay up for Cooper or Lamb. His big-play ability makes him fantasy viable, even under a snap count. Gallup is a strict tournament play for those stacking the Cowboys vs. Falcons game.

Other NFL DFS Options: Davante Adams ($8,700), Diontae Johnson ($7,400), Terry McLaurin ($7,100), Cole Beasley ($6,100), Marvin Jones Jr. ($5,900)

Tight Ends

Kyle Pitts ($6,900)

With all of the elite tight ends avoiding the main slate in Week 10, Kyle Pitts is left as the most expensive one this week. He is projected for the most points of any tight end on the slate, playing against a below-average Cowboys defense. Although Pitts has been inconsistent as of late, he is clearly the top receiving option on a team that often faces negative game scripts. Pitts is a perfect stacking option alongside Matt Ryan and is a bring-back player for Cowboys stacks.

Dalton Schultz ($6,000)

Other than Pitts, the selection for a tight end this week is extremely slim. Dalton Schultz is my second-tier option at the position while his sole purpose is to gain exposure to this Dallas offense. He doesn’t have the same upside as Pitts but has a higher floor, consistently seeing 5+ targets per game.

Other NFL DFS Options: Dallas Goedert ($5,900), Dan Arnold ($5,100)
