A new week of football is almost underway. Playoffs are approaching and at this point in the season a simple mistake could cost fantasy owners their league. Here are the sleepers and busts for week 10 of NFL football.

Jordan Howard

Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard looked as though he was falling off the fantasy map. Two weeks ago he played what was the best overall defense on the Minnesota Vikings and had over 200 rushing yards. Look to incorporate Howard into your starting lineup for the upcoming weeks and the rest of the season.

Carson Wentz

Philadelphia Eagles Carson Wentz started the season off in a remarkable way. He looked as though he was a veteran, not a first year player from a minor Division One college. Wentz has a very ideal match up in the league’s worst passing defense, the Atlanta Falcons. Be confident about Wentz this week, and make sure to incorporate him into any lineup.

Antonio Brown

Once regarded as the best fantasy player in the league, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has begun to struggle while Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is plagued by  injuries. With Roethlisberger now healthy, Brown is back to being an extremely valuable player. Be sure to start Brown in all leagues.

Mark Ingram

Although Ingram exploded last week with over 150 yards, this week he plays a tough, number one ranked Denver Broncos defense. Ingram is a player to leave on the bench this week as he is expected not to do well against the Denver defense.

Brandon Marshall

The quarterback controversy for the New York Jets has taken a toll on the entire team, but specifically, wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been consistently a below average player. With this quarterback issue still relevant, Marshall remains a player to keep on the bench.

Demarco Murray

While Tennessee Titans running back Demarco Murray has debatably been the best running back in fantasy this year, this week he plays an extremely tough Green Bay rushing defense. This makes him a less valuable start, and someone to be wary of.
