With the playoff push in full effect in fantasy leagues everywhere, it's time to get serious about managing your roster. With that, here are some invaluable tips for Week 10 that will surely lead your fantasy season to a big payday. Let's go!
Pickups of the week
Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
If you happen to play in a four-team league with three-man rosters, and the other three guys in the league are all currently incarcerated, there's a good chance Adrian Peterson is sitting in the free agent pool.
But don't fall asleep on this rookie! He's a little under-the-radar, so most people probably didn't notice that he rushed for an NFL-record 296 yards last week. Their negligence is your boon. Pick him up!
Keenan McCardell, Washington Redskins
If you play in a thirty-team league with forty-man rosters, you'll wanna pick up McCardell. He may have only four catches on the season, but brighter days are clearly ahead for this hot reciever. The explosive air attack of the pass-happy 'Skins is ready to explode, and when it does, you'll want McCardell on your roster.
Start 'em or Sit 'em
Sebastiano Castellavecchia from Brooklyn asks: "ehhh... whicha dese guys should i be playin--wes welker or t.j. hooshamenzada?"
Well, Sebastiano, Wes Welker is on a bye this week, so assuming you meant "Houshmandzadeh," he's probably a better bet. But there's no guarantees in this league.
Jimmy Jo-Jo-Jo Shabadoo from Norfolk, VA asks: "Tony Romo or Brooks Bollinger?"
Listen up, everyone. In the highly unlikely event that your team also has this exact pair of players, I would say to start Bollinger. While Romo has had a slightly better season than Bollinger, my sources tell me that Romo is likely to go down with an injury midway through the first quarter tonight.
Well, that's a wrap for this week's fantasy wrap-up. My own team is 2-7 in our fantasy league, so remember--I know what I'm talking about.
