Week 10: Sleepers of the Week
Danny Amendola and the St. Louis Rams travel to San Francisco to face the 49ers in week ten. Amendola got off to an excellent start to the season over the first four weeks before suffering a collarbone injury in week five. Amendola is poised to make his return to the starting lineup this week against the 49ers and should be back in fantasy lineups, especially in point per reception leagues. Sam Bradford leans on Amendola in all passing situations, making him one of the most targetted wide receivers in the league. If Amendola is still available in your fantasy league, he should be picked up immediately and inserted into lineups as a WR 3 or Flex option this week. Fantasy owners who stuck it out with Amendola through his injury can expect at least five receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown in his return.
Nate Washington and the Tennessee Titans travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins in week ten. Washington has been a bit of a disappointment this season, not topping 70 receving yards since week three against the Lions. If Washington is going to get back on track this season, this could be the week it starts to happen. The Dolphins' pass defense is currently ranked 29th in the league, allowing just under 300 passing yards per game. Miami was torched for 433 yards through the air by Andrew Luck and the Colts in week nine, and could struggle to stop the pass again this week. Fantasy owners looking for a WR 3 can start Nate Washington and can expect at least 85 receiving yards and a touchdown.
