Fantasy Land- Week 10

By: Hop Mathews


Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets

This weeks Thursday night match-up pits a depleted Jets secondary against an offense hoping to regain its original form after returning to near full-strength. The Jets have given up big games to QBs over the past few weeks, but are still a formidable opponent as long they have Darrell Revis dropping back in coverage. Tyrod Taylor should be a decent play due to his upside potential, but given his struggling receiving core he maintains his middle tier status. The biggest question for the Bills comes in the backfield with an ailing LeSean McCoy returning alongside Karlos Williams. Both have shown great talent this year, but a split backfield against a stingy Jets run defense is cause for concern.

For the Jets, Chris Ivory looks to improve his performance against a poor Bills run defense with his starting center back in action. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been relatively consistent aside from his game against Oakland and should maintain a decent floor against the bills. The Wide Receivers for the Jets, Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall are both very start able. Decker, in the slot, should look to take advantage of a weakness in the Bills secondary. Marshall, despite facing a tougher match-up outside, should be able to continue his success.


New Orleans Saints @ Washington Redskins

This match-up in New Orleans has the potential for another shoot-out like we saw week 8 against the Giants, though not to the same extent. Both defenses have struggled against the pass, especially the Saints who rank dead last in the leauge. This should provide a favorable match-up for Kirk Cousins, who has put up decent numbers, considering the defenses he’s faced. For the Redskins receiving core, Jordan Reed posses the highest floor, as Cousins security blanket, while it is still unknown exactly how the dynamic between Pierre Garcon and the returning DeSean Jackson will flesh out. Most likely, Jackson will return to his typical “Boom/Bust” form due to his big play potential, while Garcon becomes less valuable with the increase in receiving options.

The high-powered Saints offense headlined by Drew Brees and Mark Ingram have great potential against the Redskins. Mark Ingram should be able to bounce back after last weeks sub-par performance, as the Redskins run defense has been atrocious all year. For the Saints, receivers Willie Snead and Brandin Cooks are the only two names that really jump out. Brees likes to throw the ball, but he also tends to spread it around.


Detroit Lions @ Green Bay Packers

With the Lions cutting their losses for this season and a solid Green Bay team that is coming off two straight losses against good teams with great defenses, this game looks to be a true coming home party for the Packers. The Lions have ranked toward the bottom against opposing QBs and should pose little threat to a top tier QB like Aaron Rodgers. James Starks hopes to earn a permanent starting role after receiving the No. 1 spot amid Eddie Lacy’s recent tribulations. Starks should see a lot of carries if the Packers find themselves ahead early.

The Lions don’t posses a great deal of fantasy potential outside of Calvin Johnson. Even Johnson, who comes in to the game 13th in the league in targets, has struggled to turn them into touchdowns , but he should have a plethora of chances if the Lions have to play from behind. The return of Eric Ebron at tight end puts a damper on Golden Tate’s potential, in an already tough match-up. Matthew Stafford has struggled this season as well as against the Packers in the past. The backfield for the Lions has been changing up all season and seems to be trending toward Theo Riddick, originally a strictly pass catching back.


Dallas Cowboys @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

This match-up pits two fairly even teams, who are both at the bottom of their respective divisions. The Cowboys, who had high hopes coming into the season, have been greatly hindered by injuries, especially to the likes of Dez Bryant (returned week 8) and Tony Romo (expected to return week 11). The Buccaneers have been looking to rebuild around No. 1 draft pick, Jameis Winston. In fantasy terms, the Buccaneers running back Doug Martin hopes to build on what has been an solid year against one of the league’s worst run defenses. Winston has been solid this year and hasn’t thrown a pick since week 4. However, his outlook for week 10 isn’t all that great in a game that will reliant on the ground game. Winston’s receivers have been little help this season either due to injury or simply dropped passes. Mike Evans, Tampa Bay’s top receiver, is still a viable play due to the sheer volume of targets though his ceiling remains low until his hands improve. If the other members of the Buccaneer receiving core are able to play (Vincent Jackson & Austin Seferian-Jenkins) they may prove to hamper Evans targets for Sunday, though in the long run they may help ease coverage on him.

The Cowboys have suffered six straight loses since losing their starting quarterback. With Matt Cassell still at the helm, the cowboys offense remains limited, though there have been a few bright spots. The movement from a committee backfield to a single rusher has greatly increased Darren McFadden’s value as the seasons progressed. Dez Bryant has also shown glimpses of previous greatness in his few games since returning to injury.

  5. When performing in sports, it is quite significant to have traits that demonstrate, when being about employers
    in a organization setting. The 3 characteristics to have in order to be productive in the sporting industry are positivity, becoming able to talk,
    and then remaining punctual. All a few of these display some significance in the working planet.
    When strolling into a space where by there are
    professionals all all over, he or she need to act experienced.
    The to start with effect in life is critical because of how
    persons judge other people, and of the way they act. The person should first
    introduce who he or she is so that the other staff members will accept him or her.
    On the lookout at the several sporting careers and organizations in the environment, I
    manufactured an assumption that, administrators or supervisors are accountable for choosing out the greatest prospect that would symbolize
    the business.

    When a applicant that is applying for a career need to be positive and
    self-confident in what that man or woman would like to do.
    Positivity would refer to individuals who glance forward
    and not back in what they want to go after. A in a natural
    way beneficial man or woman would request prospects exactly where other people
    would see road blocks. Clearing an individual’s minds from negativity and disappointment is the first stage toward improving on this high quality.
    This an essential good quality a person need to have simply because of how this can help the firm or field do a greater work.
    If an employer seems at a employee and sees that that employee is constantly showing indications of negativity close to other individuals, then that individual will most probably get fired from the position. In the sporting sector getting optimistic and
    valuable to other individuals will only enable the
    corporation increase and acquire a lot more advantages in the very long operate.
    For instance, let’s present an example of how currently being
    positive will aid the workforce grow to be a lot more effective.
    A particular person walks in to a conference not realizing
    who the individuals are. That person introduces them selves with a team of activity small
    business individuals and seems forward to what the team has in program.

    That person’s positivity would spread all-around the desk
    of personnel and provide excitement for what is in the performs.

    That is why this is an essential high quality to have in a
    individual. Remaining beneficial will only lead to a accomplishment not a failure.

    When a candidate is on the lookout to established up an job interview with a prospective business, possessing exceptional
    communication skills will only assistance when he or she is speaking
    to the interviewer. In any sport corporation remaining ready to connect verbally is an essential quality to have
    as well. Understanding what to say at important details in a predicament is what
    an worker ought to have realized how to do now. This is a talent that is realized,
    not something that people today were being born with.

    For occasion, in a predicament, when he or she has to be place on the
    place with approximately 200 people in entrance of you or
    fewer, coming up with the terms to say may be rough.
    As soon as, he or she is aware of how to chat properly and precisely to some others, it will only become
    less complicated. In a sport group, guest’s speaker’s or people today that converse on T.V.

    for ESPN have individuals basic techniques of talking fluently in entrance of other people.
    Athletic directors, coaches, managers, and sport announcers for activities do not
    have an uncomplicated endeavor. They have practiced their speeches
    numerous of moments so that he or she does not make issues when getting set on the place.
    These characteristics have made a person a more powerful personal over-all.

    This final good quality is remaining punctual.
    In a sports activities group being on time to events or meetings is
    another top quality a man or woman has to have. For occasion, in a sport business this
    kind of as the Connecticut Sunlight, there is a ton likely
    on at once this sort of as poker tables and concerts as
    perfectly as sporting video games. It is critical
    for him or her to know what they have to do. The worker should be equipped to handle time in get to be powerful in the perform position. The employer in a sports organization or in any corporation is demanding with this.
    If an personnel is 5 minutes late, the employer
    could also hearth that individual. If this is the first time for a applicant to get a occupation with a sporting corporation, remaining on table will
    demonstrate off a fantastic overall look and impress the employer.
    Any employee likes to get some kind of credit if that man or woman is early
    from an employer.
