FanEx Sports: Tips for EasyScore Pick’em Games Week 10

Week 10 of the NFL season is fast approaching and it’s time to take home some cash in the QB Throwdown, RB Rushing Roulette and WR Downfield Threat. Each EasyScore Pick’em game focuses on one position and gives you three tiers from each position to choose from. So in the end you’ll have three players on your team, either QBs, RBs, WRs, TEs or even Kickers!

Here are my three teams for this week:

QB Throwdown

Tier 1: Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Matthew Stafford, Cam Newton, Tony Romo
Drew Brees NFL Daily and Weekly Fantasy Football Stud











Drew Brees: Brees is averaging 334 passing yards per game and faces the Dallas Cowboys who give up 323 passing yards per game. I like those numbers, especially when two offensive minded teams face off. The Saints pass defense is good, but there will still be a lot of scoring in this one.


Tier 2: Philip Rivers, Robert Griffin III, Matt Ryan, Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger, Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, Michael Vick

Philip Rivers: The Chargers will be playing from behind in this one and Rivers isn’t going to be able to milk the clock to keep Peyton Manning off the field like he did with Andrew Luck a few weeks back. The Broncos pass defense is improving with their stout pass rush, but Rivers has been getting it done with a quick release all season and has been able to avoid pressure.


Tier 3: Joe Flacco, Jake Locker, Jay Cutler, Eli Manning, Andy Dalton, Terrelle Pryor, Ryan Tannehill

Jay Cutler: Cutler has made a quick recovery and will face the Lions this week. The Lions pass defense has been getting beat for much of the season. Andy Dalton lit them up for 372 yards in Week 7 and Cutler threw for 317 when they met earlier in the season. The Bears offense is clicking and Cutler should get his in a high scoring game.


RB Rushing Roulette

Tier 1: Matt Forte, Adrian Peterson, LeSean McCoy, Marshawn Lynch, Reggie Bush, Frank Gore, DeMarco Murray, Eddie Lacy
Adrian Peterson Daily Fantasy Football RB Running Back Stud Pick










Adrian Peterson: Tonight’s game should see a ton of Adrian Peterson. Last week he looked back to form with 140 rushing yards and Washington is allowing 98.4 yards rushing per game at a 4.3 yards per carry clip. I have a feeling Peterson has a huge game.


Tier 2: Arian Foster, Knowshon Moreno, Giovani Bernard, Alfred Morris, Chris Johnson, Rashad Jennings, Darren McFadden, Andre Ellington

Chris Johnson: I know it’s hard to trust him, but coming off his best game in a long time he faces a Jaguars team with the worst rush defense in the league. They are giving up 129.9 yards rushing per game to running backs at 4.7 yards per carry. Johnson will continue to lose goal line looks, but that’s not a problem in this game since yardage is the only stat.


Tier 3: Lamar Miller, Le'Veon Bell, Danny Woodhead, Darren Sproles, DeAngelo Williams, Maurice Jones-Drew, Zac Stacy, Johnathan Franklin

Zac Stacy: It’s so nice to have a running back that plays on every down and gets a ton of work. The Colts run defense is about in the middle of the pack but they are vulnerable and you can’t go wrong with a player averaging 26.5 carries over the last two weeks.


Downfield Threat

Tier 1: Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant, Jordy Nelson, T.Y. Hilton, Demaryius Thomas, A.J. Green, Brandon Marshall, Larry Fitzgerald
Calvin Johnson Daily Fantasy Football Pick Stud Wide Receiver











Calvin Johnson: The Bears held Megatron down in week four to 44 yards, but it’s nearly impossible to stop him twice.


Tier 2: Vincent Jackson, Wes Welker, Victor Cruz, Antonio Brown, Alshon Jeffery, Terrance Williams, Eric Decker, Hakeem Nicks

Antonio Brown: The Bills give up 204 yards per game to wide receivers, which ranks them 30th in the league. Antonio Brown averages over ten targets per game and leads the league in receptions. He’s about as solid a play as you can get.


Tier 3: Justin Blackmon, James Jones, DeSean Jackson, Nate Washington, Brandon LaFell, Rueben Randle, Roddy White Mike Wallace

DeSean Jackson: Will we get good Nick Foles or bad Nick Foles this week? I’m banking on good Nick Foles and with this motley crew of receivers he stands out as the best. The Packers pass defense is middle of the road and they have little pass rush with Clay Mathews out. I like Foles and Jackson to hook up for a couple big plays.
