DraftKings Picks Week 10: NFL DFS lineup advice for daily fantasy football GPP tournaments



We’re going with a “stars-and-scrubs” DFS build thanks to some of the values and situations presenting themselves to us this week. This includes a pair of rookie wide receivers who share a surname and similarly exciting short-term upside. Byes and prime-time games takeaway some key daily fantasy studs, but our Week 10 DraftKings tournament lineup features a nice mix of stars and boom-or-bust sleepers at wideout, which is usually the mix you want in GPP contests.

Before we break down our picks, here are the most notable scoring rules for DraftKings contests: Full-point PPR, four-point passing TDsthree-point bonuses for 100 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards, and 300 passing yards.

DraftKings Picks Week 10: NFL DFS lineup for GPP tournaments

Sunday main slate, $50,000 budget

QB Josh Allen, Bills @ Jets ($7,900). There’s nothing like an embarrassing loss to refocus a Super Bowl contender, and losing to the Jaguars is likely to put the Bills on a warpath this week. Allen scored 39.5, 32.7, and 29.5 DraftKings points in three games, respectively, before slipping to the tune of 12.6 points in Week 9. He’s a great bet to turn the ship around against the Jets on Sunday.

RB Jonathan Taylor, Colts vs. Jaguars ($8,100). Taylor has ripped off five 100-yard rushing or receiving contests in his past six games, earning DK’s three-point bonus, and he combined for 100 yards in the other. He’s exploded for 37.0, 34.9, and 31.8 DK points, respectively, over that span, and is very capable of another 30-plus-point outburst. The Jaguars won their Super Bowl in Week 9. We don’t expect them to pull another rabbit out of their hat.

RB Austin Ekeler, Chargers vs. Vikings ($7,600). Ekeler is mired in a minor slump, disappointing in two of his past three games, but he should get back on track soon. He had a four-game streak eclipsing the 22.5-point threshold from Weeks 2-5, and we like the chances of him beginning a new one.

WR Emmanuel Sanders, Bills @ Jets ($5,700). Sanders was shut out in Week 8, but came back to life in the Bills’ loss to the Jaguars, tying for the team lead with eight targets. Sanders’ season high in receptions is five, so he’s not perfect for DraftKings’ PPR format, but he’s made big plays (17.1 yards per catch) and found the end zone (four touchdowns). A lot of Bills will want to eat on Sunday after last week’s dud, and Sanders will have a seat at the table.

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

WR Elijah Moore, Jets vs. Bills ($4,700). Moore’s rookie breakout is underway. He reeled in 13 receptions on 14 targets over the past two weeks and scored his first two touchdowns of his career in last week’s loss to the Colts. Corey Davis (hip) might return to action which is a double-edged sword — the vet will command target share, but that could also shift primary defensive focus away from Moore.

WR Rondale Moore, Cardinals vs. Panthers ($4,400). Even if No. 1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) suits up, we don’t expect him to be himself. And while A.J. Green (COVID) may return, we still like Moore’s potential to handle an increased touch share. He hasn’t scored double-digit points since Week 5, but it won’t be a surprise to see him take his game up a notch over the second half, perhaps beginning this week.

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

TE Dan Arnold, Jaguars @ Colts ($3,500). Arnold has quickly emerged as one of Trevor Lawrence’s favorite targets. He led the team with seven targets last week and ranks third in the department in spite of only joining the Jags in Week 4. He’s averaging 11.3 yards per catch on 22 grabs, but we’ve seen him operate successfully as a big-play weapon, averaging 13.1 yards per catch on 80 career receptions. If he combines volume with increased efficiency as he generates more rapport with his quarterback, he’ll be a valuable fantasy asset down the stretch.

FLEX (RB) Javonte Williams, Broncos vs. Eagles ($5,000). We’d like this better if Melvin Gordon III would pass the torch already, but Williams’ time is coming. He delivered his first 100-yard game against the Cowboys last week, and he’ll combine yardage with a touchdown — or two — eventually. He’s reached double-digit DK points in four of nine games this season, so even if the near-50/50 split continues, Williams will have another chance to shine against a friendly run defense.

DEF Cowboys vs. Falcons ($3,000). It’s often beneficial to bet on teams coming off of a dud, and the Cowboys were thoroughly dominated in front of their home fans last Sunday. After spending a week under the media microscope, it’s reasonable to expect them to hit the field refocused and locked in against a Falcons team prone to offensive carelessness.
