Fantasy Football: Week 10 Pickups

Scott Moser / Washburn Review

Here is a list of some players that may be available in your fantasy league that can help you this week.

Laurent Robinson-WR Dallas Cowboys (17% Yahoo! owned): Robinson has been a surprise contributor for the Cowboys the past few weeks. He and Tony Romo have developed a little chemistry, and with Miles Austin out for the next two to three weeks with a hamstring injury, it looks like Robinson should see more opportunities. He’s had 13 targets the last two games and has been able to turn them into 10 receptions for 135 yards and two touchdowns. He plays against the Buffalo Bills this week and they give up a lot of yards through the air. Grab him now before somebody else does. Forecast: Five receptions, 74 yards, one TD.

Torrey Smith-WR Baltimore Ravens (47% Yahoo! owned): Smith has been inconsistent this year, but I think it has a lot to do with Baltimore’s quarterback, Joe Flacco. Flacco has looked great at times, but also awful at times. Smith had nine targets last week and turned them into five receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Baltimore travels to play in Seattle this weekend, so Smith should again get plenty of looks this week. Forecast: Six receptions, 89 yards.

Roy Helu-RB Washington Redskins (35% Yahoo! owned): It looks like a back has finally emerged out of the Washington backfield. Helu had a very solid game last Sunday and he should continue to get most of the carries every week. Helu was targeted out of the backfield 17 times on Sunday and turned them into 14 receptions for 105 yards. These numbers are wicked good for people playing in PPR leagues. Washington travels to Miami to take on the Dolphins and Helu should again see plenty of opportunities against the Dolphins. Forecast: 14 carries, 65 yards, six receptions, 42 yards.

Plug n’ Play Defense-Jacksonville Jaguars (4% Yahoo! owned): The Jacksonville offense has not helped them, but the defense is what has kept Jacksonville in games. The Jacksonville defense has played a lot better the past few weeks and looked great on a Monday night several weeks ago when it helped them beat the Ravens.  The Jaguars are coming off a bye week and travel to play an inept offense in Indianapolis this Sunday. Forecast: Three sacks, two interceptions.
