The top salary-cost quarterbacks in NFL Week 10 are: Dak Prescott, Drew Brees, Matt Stafford, Jared Goff, and Ben Roethlisberger. Check out whom I think has the most overpriced salary. I also write about whom I think is the best choice based on salary. As always, I list four quarterback options for NFL Week 10.
NFL Week 10 Top Fantasy QBs
1. Dak Prescott, $7,300, Dallas at Atlanta
2. Drew Brees, $6,900, New Orleans at Buffalo
3. Matt Stafford, $6,800, Detroit vs Cleveland
4. Jared Goff, $6,700, L.A. Rams vs Houston
5. Beon Roethlisberger, $6,600, Pittsburgh at Indianapolis
Most Overpriced Salary
Matt Stafford, $6,800, Detroit vs Cleveland
Cleveland has a much better defense than advertised. The Browns only allow 84.2 rushing yards per game. Because Detroit only rushes the ball for 79.9 yards per, the Browns defensive line can rush Matthew Stafford all day. Not only that, but the Browns' pass defense only allows 229.2 passing yards per game.
Stafford could dominate Cleveland's defense. More than likely, Detroit plays in a much tougher game than anyone realizes. That means Stafford is a tough add at $6,800.
Best Choice Based on Salary
Jared Goff, $6,700, L.A. Rams vs Houston
The Rams average 32.9 points per game. Goff faces a defense that allows 26 points per game. Houston allowed Jacoby Brissett to throw for 308 yards and 2 TDs. Goff is more polished than Brissett. At the $6,700 salary, Goff is close to a steal versus the Texans on Sunday.
NFL Week 10 QB Options
Josh McCown, $6,100, New York Jets at Tampa Bay
McCown's salary is $100 bucks above $6,000. That tells us something right there. I'm not the only one who believes Josh McCown could absolutely demolish the Tampa Bay Buccaneers secondary on Nov. 12. McCown races the 27th ranked defense versus quarterbacks. That, by itself, means he could have a big day.
Andy Dalton, $5,300, Cincinnati at Tennessee
I'm not sold on Tennessee's pass defense while the powers that be at the NFL have decided not to suspend WR A.J. Green. That works in Dalton's favor. Andy can get it going versus the Titans, who have faced inexperienced, or bad, quarterbacks in their last 3 games.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, $4,900, Tampa Bay vs New York Jets
The Jets have a decent pass defense. It makes no sense not to open things up with Fitzpatrick under center. Fitz has already gotten the starting nod. He could perform well versus the Jets if he maintains his composure. Not having Mike Evans to throw the football to might be a big deal. That's why you can add Fitz for less than $5,000.
Case Keenum, $4,800, Minnesota at Washington
Although Minnesota took Teddy Bridgewater off IR, they're going to start Case Keenum on Sunday. Keenum won't have any luck throwing to his wide receivers because Washington is great at covering wide receivers. Washington's not that great at covering RBs and TEs. Keenum's savvy enough to throw the football to Jerrick McKinnon and Kyle Rudolph. He also won't force anything that isn't there.
