- Need help setting your fantasy football lineup for the Week 10 NFL slate?
- Sean Koerner separates players into tiers to allow you to easily identify projected output for the upcoming weekend.
There are six teams out on bye this week (Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins), which means fantasy owners will need to be focused on the lower tier players much more than they have in past weeks.
Take these tiers/rankings as a window into where I am starting the week off in my model.
There is going to be a ton of volatility in rankings movement so, as always, be sure to check my updated rankings before it’s time to make the final sit/start calls this week.

Week 9 Fantasy Football Tiers
Lamar Jackson (@ CIN)
Jackson proved he is matchup proof with QB3 finish against the Patriots on Sunday Night Football. Next up is a smash spot against the Bengals.
In Week 6, he made it look easy when he dropped 152 rushing yards on them. He is three projected points clear of the next tier and has the ultimate high floor/ceiling combo we want from our QB1.
Jameis Winston (vs. ARI)
Drew Brees (vs. ATL)
Patrick Mahomes (@ TEN)
Kyler Murray (@ TB)
Aaron Rodgers (vs. CAR)
Dak Prescott (vs. MIN)
Winston has massive upside this week. My projections of him facing the Cardinals slots him in as the overall QB2. It’s critical to acknowledge that no matter what the matchup is, Winston has a lower floor than all quarterbacks in this range.
You should not be starting him over Mahomes, but if you are in a spot where you can start him over a Russell Wilson or Jared Goff type, you should consider it.
The rest of the quarterbacks in this tier are great floor/ceiling plays this week, including Murray who is facing a Tampa Bay defense that hasn’t been able to slow down any opposing quarterbacks of late.
Russell Wilson (@ SF)
Wilson is a tough call this week in a tough road game against the undefeated 49ers. I consider Wilson pretty much matchup proof at this point in his career so I would lean towards starting him with confidence even if you seem to have a tough sit/start call on your hands.
He’s likely to have Josh Gordon this week as another option in the passing game, which will give him a boost longer term once they start to get chemistry.
