FanDuel DFS NFL Week 10 picks and lineup advice: Tight End

With no Kelce, Kittle, or Andrews, the tight end position looks relatively barren this week. While I can not fault you for paying up for Kyle Pitts ($6900) or T.J Hockenson ($6500), I think my favorite play this week is Rob Gronkowski ($6100) if he is healthy, as I just love the looks of the Bucs passing offense this week coming off a bye.

However, I do think that punting the position is a viable option each and every week and even more so when there are no clear top options that can bury you with points. Tyler Conklin ($5300) is still way too cheap for the volume he is seeing in the passing game and is one touchdown away from winning someone a tournament.

Pat Freiermuth ($5100) feels a bit like chasing production but the target counts are there and with Claypool sidelined, he should be the secondary target in this Steelers offense against the Lions.

Finally, Dan Arnold ($5100) has been about as consistent as they come in terms of targets and yardage at the tight end position but has yet to find the end zone on the season. Roster him knowing you will not see a zero at your tight end position but are also unlikely to see double digits unless he breaks his scoreless streak.

FanDuel DFS NFL Week 10 picks and lineup advice: Defense

While I did advise punting the tight end position, this will most likely be so that I can spend my salary on running backs and pay up for a quarterback, so I would still advise punting the defense position this week.

While you do not need me to tell you the Bills ($5000) against the Jets are a strong play, I will offer that among the most expensive defenses I think the Saints ($4700) are certainly the sneakiest and a good way to get leverage against those locking in the Bills or Steelers against obviously bad offenses.

My favorite punt play of the week is the Panthers ($3600) and honestly, it does not even matter to me if Murray is out or not. While the Panthers as a whole are a disaster, I would still classify their defense as strong and should be a nice value against a Cardinals team that no one is looking to stand in the way of.

Finally, although it pains me to say it, the Lions ($3100) are a solid option if you can not afford to cut costs at any other position. The Steelers’ offense can not run up the score on anybody and the Lions’ defense is not good by any means, but can certainly hold their own against said Steelers’ offense.

FanDuel Week 10 DFS Lineup

  • QB Tom Brady – $8300
  • RB Dalvin Cook – $8500
  • RB Ezekiel Elliot – $8000
  • WR Mike Evans – $7400
  • WR D.K Metcalf – $8000
  • WR Jamal Agnew – $5300
  • TE Tyler Conklin – $5300
  • FLEX D’Ernest Johnson – $5400
  • D/ST Carolina – $3600

This is quite honestly one of my favorite lineups that I have ever made in this segment, as it demonstrates how much talent you can cram into one lineup with the way players are priced this week. There are very few times where you can roster a stud quarterback, two stud running backs, and two stud wide receivers and still have room for actual NFL players at your remaining positions.

Obviously, this lineup will need to be tinkered with if Russell Wilson does not return or Chubb gets off the COVID list, but at this point in time, it takes advantage of the value of players like Agnew and Johnson and allows us to pay up for mis priced studs like Cook and Evans.

However, there is a myriad of ways you can craft your lineup this week, so do not feel like this is an end-all be-all method. Regardless of your eventual lineup, best of luck in your Week 10 FanDuel DFS endeavors!
