Week 10 NFL DFS Cheat Sheet – 2023

The Week 10 NFL DFS schedule reads like a Hollywood script, filled to the brim with high-stakes pre-playoff showdowns. We’ve got a lineup of matchups and gridiron gladiators.

But before we pull on our virtual helmets and dive headfirst into the player pit, let’s spotlight three heavyweight clashes with high scoring potential.

Shootouts Alert: 3 Games That Could Generate Fat Fantasy Totals

  1. Detroit Lions (-1.5) at Los Angeles Chargers (+1.5) – O/U 48.5
    • The Chargers have a DvPL4 of 32.6 against WRs which is good news for a red-hot Amon-Ra St. Brown.
    • St. Brown has eclipsed 100 yards receiving in five of his last six games.
    • Detroit has given up yardage on the ground the last couple of weeks (113 ypg) which bodes well for Austin Ekeler.
  2. Houston Texans (+6.5) at Cincinnati Bengals (-6.5) – O/U 46.5
    • CJ Stroud just had a historic outing that saw the rookie pass for 470 yards and 5 TDs.
    • Joe Burrow has been on fire during his team’s four-game winning streak and has just one game under 25 fantasy points.
    • Cincinnati runners have a favorable matchup as the Texans are bottom 10 in the NFL in FPs allowed to RBs.
  3. Washington Commanders (+6.0) at Seattle Seahawks (-6.0) – O/U 45.5
    • The Seahawks have given up 57 points across the last two weeks while the Commanders have scored 51.
    • Sam Howell has thrown for 722 yards in his last two games and could continue to do damage through the air against a faltering Seattle D.
    • While the Seahawks only mustered 3 points in Week 9, they’re facing a Washington D ranked 30th in fantasy points allowed to QBs and WRs.

Contrarian Corner: 3 Under-the-Radar Players to Watch

  1. Najee Harris, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers, $4,900
    • Harris has lost carries to Jaylen Warren this season, but the Pittsburgh RB has made the most of his opportunities with an average of 14 FPs per game across his last three.
    • The Packers are ranked 22nd in fantasy points allowed to running backs.
    • Harris has a TD in two of the last three weeks.
  2. Dalton Schultz, TE, Houston Texans, $4,900
    • After duds in the first three weeks of the season, Schultz has just one game under 13 FP in his last five.
    • Schultz is coming off of a massive 130 yard performance and could keep things rolling against the Bengals and their DvPL4 of 17 against tight ends.
    • Schultz has a Tgt%L4 of 26%.
  3. Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Seattle Seahawks, $4,100
    • Geno Smith barely threw over 150 yards in Week 9, with 63 of those yards going to Smith-Njigba.
    • Smith-Njigba has a solid floor of 12.3 fantasy points in his last three outings.
    • The Commanders are ranked 30th in the NFL in FPs given up to wide receivers.

Backup Brilliance: 3 Fill-in Players With Splash Potential

  1. Joshua Dobbs, QB, Minnesota Vikings, $5,500
    • Dobbs replaced two Minnesota QBs in Week 9 and provided the Vikings with a big comeback victory.
    • In his first game with Minnesota, Dobbs scored three TDs while chipping in 66 rushing yards.
    • The veteran backup has averaged 20 FPs per game across his last four contests.
  2. Daniel Bellinger, TE, New York Giants, $3,000
    • With Waller out in Week 9, Bellinger was able to grab three catches for 43 yards.
    • While the numbers aren’t great, Bellinger was second in yardage for the Giants last week.
    • The Cowboys are ranked 22nd in fantasy points allowed to tight ends.
  3. Alexander Mattison, RB, Minnesota Vikings, $5,500
    • Cam Akers was unfortunately carted off the field midgame in Week 9 which leaves Mattison without much competition.
    • Mattison finished the game with a touchdown and a big 47-yard reception.
    • The Minnesota halfback is projected to get 18 opportunities in Week 10 which should give him plenty of chances to contribute.

Prop Bonanza: Flex players with high prop-to-salary ratios

  1. Joe Mixon, RB, Cincinnati Bengals, $6,200
    • Lowest [TDCost] and a -171 prop line
  2. Najee Harris, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers, $4,900
    • Second lowest [TDCost] and a +115 prop line
  3. Devin Singletary, RB, Houston Texans, $4,700
    • Third lowest [TDCost] and a +135 prop line
