My Week 9 start/sit picks went 12-13-5, with the wide receiver position presenting my biggest hurdle. It's crucial to bounce back, as many fantasy teams are in need of wide receiver waiver wire pickups due to injuries and numerous studs being on bye weeks, such as Ja’Marr Chase.

QUARTERBACKS

START

CARSON WENTZ, INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

Carson Wentz has made the start column in each of the past two weeks and delivered with back-to-back performances of three passing touchdowns. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback has now scored at least 17 fantasy points and thrown multiple touchdowns in six straight games.

He is firing on all cylinders and gets a plus matchup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10. The Jaguars rank 31st in yards per attempt and 28th in passer rating faced. 

Indy also boasts the fourth-highest implied team total for the second straight week, which tends to be a solid predictor of fantasy success for quarterbacks.

DEREK CARR, LAS VEGAS RAIDERS

Sunday Night Football is a massive bounce-back spot for Carr, who not only missed tight end Darren Waller twice in the end zone last week, but also Zay Jones and Bryan Edwards. The Raiders quarterback finished 1-for-7 on passes into the end zone. Because of the plethora of high-value throws, Carr concluded Week 9 with a whopping 29.4 expected fantasy points

Be sure to have him in all season-long and DFS lineups against the Kansas City Chiefs with positive touchdown regression firmly in sight. 

Adding speedy vertical deep threat DeSean Jackson to the mix should also heighten Carr’s fantasy ceiling. Carr posted an abysmal 22.8 PFF passing grade on throws 20-plus yards downfield versus the New York Giants in Week 9. But in Weeks 1-8, he was PFF’s fourth-graded passer on deep throws (95.8). 

Kansas City ranks 29th in passer rating allowed on attempts of 20-plus air yards. 

MATT RYAN, ATLANTA FALCONS

I listed Ryan as a “sit” in Week 9, and he made me pay the price. He diced up the New Orleans Saints defense to the tune of 343 passing yards and two touchdowns, throwing to the likes of Olamide Zaccheaus, Russell Gage and Tajae Sharpe
