Our analysts reveal their wildest fantasy predictions for Week 10. Which one will come true?
Count on Kmet
Scott Pianowski: We must forget the first part of it Cole Kmet’s time. The Bears offense was a hide and seek show, with little creativity or proactiveness in the passing game. Kmet has three touchdowns in two weeks and is coming off the biggest target of the year. And consider how he’s been scoring lately, taking advantage of game design and feasting on defenses that petrify Justin Fields running ability. These are potato chips.
Kmet’s TE17 is currently in the expert consensus, which makes no sense. The Lions have trouble covering the seams and have given up the third-most points at the position. Kmet is easily in my top 10 and I will start him wherever I can.
Gibson sneaks into RB1 territory
Matt Harmon: It’s far from the sexiest offense and Week 9’s results weren’t ideal, but I’m back on track with Antonio Gibson. We know that Terry McLaurin has won with ODU’s Finest at center, but Gibson ranks third with a 15.9% target share by Taylor Heinicke three starts. With fellow backfield mate JD McKissic sidelined by a neck injury, Gibson will have to keep that role for now. Washington on Monday night takes on the Eagles, who are 31st in passing percentage allowed but third in passing percentage allowed. So Gibson can win two ways: He can run some big plays against this tunnel defense or catch a handful of passes in return mode. I can see him sneaking into the RB1 ranks this week.
Brissett’s big day
Dalton Del Don: The Browns prefer to run, but Opponents have the second-highest passing percentage (67.7%) when playing in Miami this season. The Dolphins defense also has a five-point pressure rate and has allowed the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season (despite their Zach Wilson, Kenny Pickett, Mc Jones and Jared Goff). Conversely, Miami’s offense is primed to put up a ton of points Sunday in a game with one of its highest totals (48.5 points) of the week. Jacoby Brissett is available in 90% of Yahoo leagues, but finishes as a top-5 fantasy QB this week.

Olave: Overall WR1?
Andy Behrens: Chris Olave he’s been the NFL’s air-yards king basically all season, but it hasn’t yet translated into a monster week-winning performance. It feels like it’s about to change. This week, Olave takes on a Steelers defense that allows the most fantasy points per game to opposing receivers. Wideouts have scored 13 touchdowns against this defense and surrendered six 100-yard games. We’re about to see Olave’s first multi-TD performance and, perhaps, his first week as the overall WR1.
