It’s Week 10 of the fantasy football season, and with several teams on bye this week, sleepers may need to be relied on. Here are a few sleeper backs.
We’re over halfway through the fantasy football season, and each week is becoming more important. With a few more teams on bye this week, your team may be relying more on sleeper plays this week. At the running back position, there are several names to keep an eye on. Let’s get into it.
Top running back sleepers for fantasy football Week 10
10. Kyren Williams, Los Angeles Rams
There’s reportedly a good chance that Rams rookie Kyren Williams makes his season and career debut in Week 10. If so, he will be joining a backfield that has been atrocious. The Rams are the second-worst rushing team in the NFL, averaging only 68.4 yards per game. Williams has a clear path to make an immediate impact.
While starting Williams as soon as he returns may be risky, he’s a name to keep an eye on down the stretch run. No other Rams running back has shown anything close to competency, and this offense needs a spark. He’s a potential starting running back worth stashing and is a possible cheap DFS play if he does end up playing.
9. Chase Edmonds, Denver Broncos
Chase Edmonds is set to make his Denver Broncos debut this weekend. With the state of Denver’s offense, they could use an electric playmaker like Edmonds. While he likely won’t take over as the starter (at least not right away), he should see some passing-down work.
The Broncos have continued to show little faith in Melvin Gordon, so this backfield could become a Latavius Murray/Edmonds backfield as early as Week 10. Edmonds has shown he can be explosive in the passing game before and could be an interesting PPR option in deep leagues.
