HOT OR NOT 🔥❄️ (D.Reed)

What’s Hot🔥
QB
Ben Roethlisberger (Dallas @ Pittsburgh)
Roethlisberger played shaky in his first game back from injury against the Baltimore Ravens last week. “Big Ben” will be poised to get the Steelers offense rolling this week as they play host to a smoking hot Dallas Cowboys team. I expect for Roethlisberger to improve on his subpar performance from last week as he continues to get healthier. Roethlisberger has been a different animal at home, and it’ll be very difficult to bet against him there!!! Be sure to get “Big Ben” locked into your QB1 slot this week!!!
Carson Palmer (San Francisco @ Arizona)
Fresh off a bye week, Carson Palmer and company will be up against the dreadful secondary of the San Francisco 49ers who have surrendered multiple touchdowns to opposing QBs in all game but 1 this season!!! Before their week 9 bye, Palmer put up top notch numbers throwing for 363 yds and 3 scores and I foresee week 10 being another huge week for Palmer!!
RB
Jonathan Stewart (Kansas City @ Carolina)
In three games since returning from injury, Stewart has averaged 3.8 yards per carry and has also averaged 20 touches per contest with four total TDs over that span!!! This week, “J-Stew” is back at home against the Kanas City Chiefs, who were ran all over by both Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon for a total of 172 yards rushing and one TD!!! I see a huge opportunity for Stewart to be a top 10 RB play this week!!!
Jordan Howard (Chicago @ Tampa Bay)
In Howard’s outing last week, he ran wild against a very tough Minnesota Vikings defense for 153 yards and a score!!! With Howard dominating the touches over his backfield mates KaDeem Carey and Jeremy Langford, he could be in for one stellar outing against a poor Tampa Bay run defense!!! If the cards are played properly, Howard could find paydirt twice before the day’s end!!!
WR
Larry Fitzgerald (San Francisco @ Arizona)
Larry Fitzgerald was one of the hottest WRs at the beginning of the season, scoring 3 TDs in his first 2 games, but he has cooled off a bit since then. This week, I look for Fitzgerald to get back on track as he draws a matchup against a San Francisco defense that’s allowed 18 total passing touchdowns!! With injuries to Arizona’s receiving corp, Fitzgerald should be used heavily, especially in the red zone. I like “Fitz” to find the end zone this week!!!
Jordan Matthews (Atlanta @ Philadelphia)
I love Jordan Matthews for two reasons this week:  he is facing the Atlanta Falcons defense (who has allowed the second-most receiving TDs and the most receiving yards to opposing wideouts this season!!!) and the Eagles are going to have to score early and often to stay in the game against one of the leagues most potent offenses!! I see a land of opportunity for Matthews this week!!!
TE
Antonio Gates (Miami @ San Diego)
It’s good to see that “Ol Reliable” is still getting the job done in the sunshine state. Antonio Gates just continues to produce, tallying 28 targets, 14 receptions and 146 yards for two scores over the last three games!!! Gates has seen a tremendous target boost with the last few games, especially in the red zone!!! At home against the Dolphins this week, it’s safe to lock in future Hall of Famer as your TE1!!!
D/ST
Arizona (vs San Francisco)
Arizona is fresh off a bye week and hosts a very lackadaisical San Francisco 49ers team this week! I expect for Arizona to lead by a couple scores in this one, which would force San Fran to throw the ball often (resulting in multiple turnovers)!! This game is just what the doctor ordered for Arizona to get its inconsistent defense back on track!!! Expect a very solid stat line from the Arizona defense this week!!!

What’s Not❄
QB
Colin Kaepernick (San Francisco @ Arizona)
Colin Kaepernick had an awesome fantasy outing last week against the Saints, throwing for nearly 400 yds (398 passing yards) and two scores!! In just about every fantasy format, “Kaep” was surprisingly labeled a stud for the week. Kaepernick’s solid outing may very well be short-lived because this week I would bench him against a Cardinals defense that is allowing an average of 200 yards passing and one TD a game to opposing quarterbacks!!
RB
Christine Michael (Seattle @ New England)
Christine Michael was once a very reliable fantasy option, but it seems as if those days may be limited with C.J. Prosise cutting into his carries and Thomas Rawls nearing full strength. To make matters worse, Michael has a tough matchup on the road this week against the New England Patriots!! I’d keep Micheal on my bench this week until the Seattle backfield becomes less cloudy!!!
WR
Brandin Cooks (Denver @ New Orleans)
Brandin Cooks has been a boom or bust this year and very touchdown dependent as well. Cooks has a week 10 matchup with one of the best secondaries, and the number one ranked defense against wideouts in the Denver Broncos!!! Denver is fresh off shutting down one of the best duos in Oaklands Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper!! I would temper my expectations for both Brandin Cooks and Micheal Thomas this week!!!
TE 
Julius Thomas (Houston @ Jacksonville) 
Thomas has become TD or bust as of late, and I expect him to have a subpar performance in his matchup with the Texans this week! If Thomas doesn’t score this week, you could be looking at about 3 points in standard scoring!!! With Blake Bortles playing so terribly, I would avoid Thomas in most league this week if I could help it!!!
D/ST
Philadelphia (vs Atlanta)
If there was week to bench the third best defense in football, it’s Week 10!!! The Eagles are in line to face one of the most potent offenses out there in the Atlanta Falcons!!! Bench the Eagles D this week, and stream a team with an easier matchup!!! If Atlanta comes out with guns blazing, Philly could be in for a long day!!!

  1. I definitely agree with everything you have to say about the Eagles defense. I do not like their matchup with Atlanta’s offense. Actually, I don’t like any defense matched up with Atlanta’s offense. Check out my blog and give me a follow! hoppisports.wordpress.com
