Week Ten Picks: QBs & RBs

There are some very enticing matchups this week at the quarterback and running back positions. I’m sure Tom Brady versus the N.Y. Giants 31st-ranked pass defense screams start him! DeAngelo Williams also gets Cleveland’s 32nd-ranked run defense. Let’s take a look at a couple of other QBs and RBs that I like in week nine.

QBs

Kirk Cousins vs. N.O. Saints

Cousins was a victim of 7 dropped balls against the Patriots, otherwise he could’ve had a pretty decent day. Cousins and the Redskins WRs get to rebound against the Saints 30th-ranked pass defense that has surrendered a league-leading 24 passing TDs. Look for Cousins to light them up!

Andy Dalton vs. Houston Texans

Houston has the 8th-ranked pass defense, however they’re tied for 6th in passing TDs allowed on the season with 16. Dalton has been absolutely outstanding this season (18 TDs and 4 INTs). Look for him to spread the wealth to his play makers on offense.

Others: Blake Bortles vs. Baltimore Ravens; Aaron Rodgers vs. Green Bay Packers

RBs

Mark Ingram vs. Washington Redskins

It pains me to pick an RB back facing my boys in D.C., however the stats say start Ingram. The Redskins run defense is giving up 187 yards per game over their couple of last games. Ingram has been New Orleans’ workhorse back all season, both as a runner and receiver. He’s bound to rack up some points.

Doug Martin vs. Dallas Cowboys

Martin enters this game as the 5th-ranked RB in the NFL. Dallas has allowed 139 yards per game over their last 3 games and their play-making LB Sean Lee may miss the game after suffering a concussion in last week’s game. I’m sure Tampa will want to get Martin going early and often.

Others: DeAngelo Williams vs. Cleveland Browns; DeMarco Murray & Ryan Mathews vs. Miami Dolphins

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League (NFL). Undrafted in 1998, he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent and became a Super Bowl champion with the team. He was also a member of the Buffalo Bills, where he played for five seasons, and the Washington Redskins, where he played for seven seasons. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. Fletcher also holds the record for consecutive starts at the linebacker position. He eventually finished his career with 215 consecutive games started, which ties him for 6th all time along with Alan Page and Ronde Barber. London has agreed to be a writer and representative for the FantasyDraft brand and serves as an ambassador to the site. He has no more access to the site than the typical user.
