Week 10

Welcome back to the NFL Field Stretcher for Week #10! We have a main slate that features 11 games this week for the first time in quite a while, so we have a few more options to target than we have seen in recent weeks. This profiles as an intriguing slate, and it’s kind of a difficult one when you look at it with a bird’s eye view. Let’s try to break it down and see if we can uncover some gems as we dissect the Week 10 offerings.

A few notes on the above:

1) The first thing you should notice is the big spreads this week. Eight of the eleven games on the main slate have Vegas spreads of six points or more. That’s significant. Blowouts might hurt production for some players this week.

2) Speaking of blowouts, how about that Cardinals/Chiefs spread? I’m somewhat nervous about going heavy on the KC offense this week, as we might not see four quarters of action from their offensive starters if the game gets out of hand.

3) Despite their recent struggles, Vegas still likes the Packers a good bit against an over-achieving Dolphins squad. I’ll talk about Aaron Rodgers and company in detail a little later.
