Fantasy Football Value Gem: Week 10

Fantasy Football Value Gem:  We are moving on to Week 10.  Our identified value selection in Week 9 was ok in Charcandrick West.  The intent here is to find a low cost but productive option to round out a roster in a DFS contest.  Of course anyone can select the obvious choices if one wishes to pay those high salaries, but unfortunately one can’t fill an entire roster with the top salaries at every position.

Let’s take a look at the Arizona Cardinals this week and their home game hosting the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners rank dead last in the NFL in total yards allowed giving up 428 yards/game.  The Niners also surrender 23 first downs/game and have coughed up 18 TD passes to opposing offenses.  

The Arizona Cardinals are major underperformers this season and in a tailspin. Understandably the coaches are not pleased at all and looking at making big changes.  Arizona Head Coach Bruce Arians even stated this past week that the WR corps has seen a big shakeup and new faces are taking over. 


The Week 10 Fantasy Football Value Gem play for Week 10 at is WR J.J. Nelson of the Arizona Cardinals.

J.J. Nelson

Cost: $4,200

5’11”, 161 lbs.

2nd season

Season Stats: 15 catches, 214 yards, 2 TDs.



Nelson has been on a roll the last couple weeks and the Head Coach stated he is #2 only behind the always reliable Larry Fitzgerald.  Look for this to continue and for the targets to stay high and even possibly rise.  It’s life or death time for this team and we expect them to try anything and everything to get on track. 

Let’s take a stab with WR J.J. Nelson this week at just $4,200 so we can spend more on other roster spots.  Nelson could certainly bring back 15+ points in this spot.  Good luck and enjoy the games!
