Fantasy Football Week 10 Sleepers: Mark Sanchez, Roddy White, and others

Ray takes a look at some Week 10 sleepers that could help you win your fantasy matchup this week, including Mark Sanchez, Bobby Rainey and others.

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

This weekly feature will take a look at some sleepers at each position who could help fantasy teams win their weekly matchup. To determine the sleepers, I will be using the fantasy points allowed at each position statistics, courtesy of AsktheCommish.com.

For week 10, I will use the fantasy points allowed this season, so we are getting a good idea as to which team defenses are allowing the most fantasy points at each position.

Teams on bye: Minnesota, New England, Indianapolis, San Diego, Washington, Houston

Sleeper Performance: Week 9

Quarterback: Alex Smith, Chiefs vs Jets 21 - 31, 199 yards, 2 TDs

Running Back: Ben Tate, Browns vs Buccaneers - 10 carries, 3 yards, 4 receptions, 29 yards, 0 TDs

Wide Receiver: Dwayne Bowe, Chiefs vs Jets - 6 receptions, 55 yards, 0 TDs

Tight End: John Carlson, Cardinals vs Cowboys - 2 receptions, 19 yards, 1 TD

Fantasy Points Allowed: Year to Date

Below you will find a table (courtesy of Ask the Commish) that lists, by team defense, the fantasy points each team defense has allowed to opposing quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends.

I have selected my sleeper picks based on the fantasy points allowed through the first nine weeks of the season, assuming the trend (allowing more fantasy points) continues.

Week 10 Sleepers

Quarterback

Mark Sanchez, Eagles vs Panthers

Eagles QB Nick Foles is out with the shoulder injury, so former Jets QB Mark Sanchez will be behind center for the Eagles in Week 10 vs the Panthers on Monday Night Football. The Panthers have allowed the 4th most fantasy points to opposing QBs this season, so Sanchez should have a good night.

Other QBs I like: Carson Palmer, Cardinals vs Rams, Russell Wilson, Seahawks vs Giants

Running Back

Bobby Rainey, Buccaneers vs Falcons

The Falcons have given up the most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, so Rainey has an opportunity for a big day in the Buccaneers backfield in Week 10. Rainey performed well in Week 9, rushing the ball for 87 yards on 19 carries, along with a catch for 34 yards in the Buccaneers 22-17 loss to the Browns. The Falcons have given up the most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, so Rainey should enjoy another solid day on the ground.

Other RBs I like: Jeremy Hill, Bengals vs Browns

Wide Receiver

Roddy White, Falcons vs Buccaneers

The Buccaneers defense has given up the third most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season, so White should be able to exploit the Buccaneers bad secondary with double digit fantasy points in Week 10.

Other WRs I like: Martavis Bryant, Steelers vs Jets

Tight End

Charles Clay, Doplhins vs Lions

Clay is fast becoming a favorite of Dophins young QB Ryan Tannehill and that should continue in Week 10. He has caught touchdowns in two of his last three games. He scored one touchdown in the Dolphins 37-0 win over the Chargers in Week 9, and was targeting in the red zone on another scoring drive, but just missed his second TD of the day.

Other TEs I like: Travis Kelce, Chiefs vs Bills
