NFL Fantasy Football: Week 10 best and worst picks

New, comments

These are the Eagles players you should pick or avoid for 2015 NFL Week 10.

SB Nation has partnered with FanDuel, which is a daily and one-week fantasy game. It's like your regular fantasy football leagues in that you pick players to represent your team and they put up points based on their stats. Where it's different is that you're not drafting the players. You're starting with a given amount of money and purchasing the players based on their prices. It's like playing fantasy but with a salary cap and you can win money each week.

So if you're interested in checking it out, I'm here to guide you with who you should/shouldn't pick to be in your fantasy lineup as far as Philadelphia Eagles players are concerned. The Eagles are scheduled to play the Miami Dolphins this week.

QB: I'm certainly not at the point where I completely trust Sam Bradford, but I'm starting to warm up to the idea after his performance in recent weeks. The Dolphins are allowing the 14th most points to quarterbacks, so there could be worse picks out there, but there could also be better. I'd still wait to see more out of Bradford before picking him.

RB: The Eagles run game looked downright awful early this season. Since Week 3, however, Philadelphia is actually second in the NFL in rush yards per game. The offensive line has played relatively well and the running backs are in sync behind them. DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews have both been listed on the injury report this week with groin issues but they're both probable to play. Murray and Mathews should be able to take advantage of a Dolphins run defense that ranks No. 28 by Football Outsiders. Miami is allowing the third most fantasy points to running backs this season. Considering Murray will get more touches, I'd start him.

WR: It's hard to believe the Eagles didn't drop a single pass last week considering how poorly they've been at catching the ball this year. Second year slot receiver Jordan Matthews is still the clear favorite of this bunch. He's coming off a good performance. No Eagles receivers are really on the radar other than Nelson Agholor. Even then, the rookie is returning from injury, and he wasn't exactly lighting it up before getting hurt, so relying on him is a risk. Agholor could make sense if you're looking for an inexpensive flyer.

TE: Zach Ertz hasn't been the game breaker some might have expected him to be but his production has been solid. He's been targeted at least six times in each of Philadelphia's last four games. He has at least four receptions and 43 yards in all of them as well. Ertz hasn't scored a touchdown this season. One would figure he's due, but it's hard to count on him until then.

K: For the first time this season, I'm actually going to advise you to take Caleb Sturgis. He's been pretty good recently. He hit a clutch 53-yard kick against Dallas last week. The Dolphins' defense isn't very good and the Eagles offense has been coming around lately so there's potential for points in this game.

DEF: Philadelphia's defense took a hit by losing standout rookie Jordan Hicks to a season-ending pectoral injury. The good news for the Eagles is that they still have a lot of talented players on defense. DeMeco Ryans is returning to the field this week, so that's a bonus for Philadelphia. Meanwhile, the Dolphins don't lack offensive weapons. Jarvis Landry could cause problems in the slot. Lamar Miller has been running the ball well at 5.3 yards per carry. There might be safer defenses to count on this week.
