Week 10 Draftkings Lineup

Injuries have decimated the NFL. I don't know if I can remember a season with as many important players going down due to injuries. Not only am I sure injuries have affected your team but its also affected draftking lineups. With that in mind here's my lineup for this week.

QB: Blake Bortles, Jaguars $5,600
Bortles and Derek Carr to me have impressed me the most out of any of the quarterbacks this year. Both quarterbacks have shown they do indeed have what it takes to be a starting quarterback, although I'm going with Bortles this week. Bortles faces a Ravens defense that has really struggled against the pass, with some suspect safety play in particular. After torching a very good Jets defense last week for 381 yards and two touchdowns for 28 points, I think he could very well do even better this week.

RB: Doug Martin, Buccaneers $5,600
Martin has not played well the last two weeks with outings of 5 and 8 points respectively. However, previous to that Martin had racked up a strong 3 straight weeks of at least 23 points. This week they face a weak Dallas defense that is ranked 18th in the league and gives up 111 yards per game. With that in mind, and with Dallas being 10th against the pass, I think Martin will get back on track this week with a potentially huge outing.

RB: DeAngelo Williams, Steelers $6,500
With the loss of Le'Veon Bell as well as the recent injury of Big Ben, Williams will become the focal point of this Steelers offense. Williams has been impressive when filling in for Bell so far this season, and scored a remarkable 41 points last week. Do I expect him to put up that many points again, no. However I do expect him to put up at least 20 as he beats up on a Cleveland team ranked last against the run.

WR: Allen Robinson, Jaguars $6,700
Last week the Jaguars torched the vaunted Jets defense and Robinson drew the coverage of one Darrelle Revis. Despite this, he managed to put up 21 points with six catches for 121 yards. For the past four weeks as well Robinson has put up 20 points and I expect that trend to continue. This week like I discussed with Bortles, they face a weak Ravens pass defense and as the top target for Bortles, look for him to to have a huge game.

WR: Randall Cobb, Packers $6,700
The Packers have really struggled lately, due to both injuries to Ty Montgomery as well as Devante Adams holding them back. This week, the Packers get a break facing a Detroit defense that has looked anemic at best at times this season and is ranked last in the league. This could be just what the doctor ordered for the Packers to get their offense back to normal and hitting on all cylinders. Cobb has lead the team in targets and receptions, which will continue and could result in him having a big day.

WR: Michael Crabtree, Raiders $5,800
Crabtree is finally realizing his potential in Oakland with Carr after struggling with the 49ers. Carr has been targeting Crabtree alot of late, with him and Amari Cooper creating a powerful one-two punch on the outside against defenses. Over the last three weeks Crabtree has caught at least six passes resulting in at least 18 points including scores in all those games. Against a defense in Minnesota that's sure to try and shut down Cooper, this leaves Crabtree with some opportunities to shine.

TE: Gary Barnidge, Browns $4,800
I'm making this choice entirely on my expectation that McCown will start for the Browns this week against Pittsburgh. When Manziel has been quarterback, Barnidge has scored only 5 and 2 points while with McCown he has scored at least 18 points excluding week 1. With McCown at quarterback this week, I expect his numbers to remain high and score around 18 points.

Flex: Darren McFadden, Cowboys $4,900
McFadden is another player like Crabtree, that has come into his own this season and really shown up. He has had at least 20 rushes the last three weeks and cemented himself as the top running back for the Cowboys. With Romo still out and the Cassel not playing very well, look for McFadden to continue to get a high amount of carries. Their opponent the Bucs, have not played well against the run ranking 15th in the league, leaving McFadden with some opportunities to score big points.

Defense: Broncos, $3,400
Yes, the defense got exposed last week against the Colts, but did anyone really expect the Colts offense to continue to look that bad? I think the Broncos just caught a Colts offense at a bad time, with them looking to make a statement. This week its Kansas City coming to Mile High Stadium, and potential for the Broncos to get back on track. With Jamaal Charles out for the year, there's limited weapons on the Chiefs offense, and the Broncos are still the best defense in the league.

That's my stance, let me know yours in the comments below.
