In the Week Ten match-ups, we are without Buffalo, Oakland, Detroit and Indianapolis, but fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief as the bye weeks are starting to wind down. There have been a lot of surprises this season, with second and third string players coming off of the waiver wires to dominate fantasy leagues. So let’s take a look at the best options available and matchups to exploit for Week Ten.
Dion Lewis (RB - NE): My pickup of the week, Lewis should be owned across the board at this point. He is finally coming back from injury and could be starting as soon as this Sunday. Even if the Patriots hold him out another week or so, he should be scooped up in all leagues. Because, remember this? Yeah.

Chris Ivory (RB - JAX): Ivory broke loose for 107 yards last week under a new offensive coordinator in Jacksonville. This week, he has a great match-up against a struggling Houston run defense and could be in line for a big game. He’s a decent streaming option if you’ve got a RB on bye.
(ESPN: 41.7% owned)
Rob Kelley (RB - WAS): A muddled backfield in Washington has left a lot of questions for fantasy owners. Kelley got the start and the better performance last week, along with a decent performance the week before, and could maintain fantasy value if Matt Jones misses more time.
(ESPN: 31.1% owned, 26.4% owned)
Sammy Watkins (WR - BUF): While he won’t be able to help your roster right away, there’s a chance that Watkins’ return is getting closer. He’s worth a stash if you have the space. He could be a nice asset down the stretch.
(ESPN: 29% owned)
C.J. Fiedorowicz (TE - HOU): Here he is, Texans fans! Fiedorowicz returns from a bye week with a decent match-up against Jacksonville. He has a touchdown in three of his last five games, and at least four receptions per game over that stretch. He’s a decent option at a thin position.
