Fantasy Football Week 10 Advice: Sit/Start Projections For RBs

A few days after Thursday Night Football had its inaugural game between the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers, the rest of the week ten slate gets going in a few hours. Week ten features no bye weeks, so all healthy bodies will be at your disposal. Unfortunately for the running back position, there are a host of injured players to deal with as guys like Ahmad Bradshaw, Felix Jones, Jahvid Best and most of the Cleveland Browns backfield will be sidelined on Sunday.

As you figure out your starting lineup for Sunday, guys like Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy and Adrian Peterson are no doubt starts. You don't look for fantasy advice on starting them. Rather, the key to many fantasy victories is hitting on that sleeper back with the money matchup. This week, there are some modest sleepers, but it is going to be tough if you don't have at least one of the big-name backs.

Reggie Bush, Dolphins: This is a tough call in some respects because Daniel Thomas is back from his hamstring injury. Thomas was not on this week's injury report, so he could take a decent number of carries away from Bush. At the same time, Bush is on a strong two-game run and faces a questionable Redskins rush defense.

Donald Brown, Colts: The Indianapolis Colts offense is going to struggle most of the season, but Donald Brown is slowly emerging as a decent fantasy option while Joseph Addai is sidelined. Addai is questionable again this week so keep an eye on the Colts inactive list Sunday morning.

Kendall Hunter, 49ers: This is more of a deep sleeper as Hunter is behind Frank Gore. Over the course of the week, Gore has been limited with an ankle sprain but is listed as probable for Sunday. Gore will get most of the carries, but if injuries have ravaged your running backs, Hunter is a deep option that might get some looks in the passing game and a few carries to spell Gore. Not a great option, but he has some upside.
