Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Week 10

3 of 4

Sep 28, 2014; Santa Clara, CA, USA; San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore (21) breaks for 55 yard touchdown on a pass from 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (7), not in picture, against the Philadelphia Eagles during the second quarter at Levi

Sit ‘Em

QB Kyle Orton (BUF) – Kyle Orton is playing surprisingly well for the Buffalo Bills since taking over the starting job in week 5. His 104.0 passer rating is good for third in the AFC. He ranks third in the league in passing yards per game and has put together a 3-1 record as a starter.

The problem is the opposing defense, the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs secondary is allowing just 199 yards per game, that is good for the league best.

I think the KC D gets the best of this week 10 match-up.

RB Frank Gore (SF) – Gore has been a frustration to fantasy football owners all season long, myself included. The veteran RB has a combined 11 points and no TD’s in the last three games.

His week 10 opponents, the Saints, are giving up less than 15 PPG to opposing running backs on the ground. Only start Gore if you have absolutely no other options.

RB Darren McFadden (OAK) – Darren McFadden has never been much of a fantasy football stud. However, in recent weeks the Raiders RB has been having some consistent performances.

The problem is that he faces the No. 1 rush defense in the NFL this week, the Denver Broncos. The Broncos are allowing just 71 YPG this season and will likely have the Raiders playing from behind all game.
