Who to start and who to sit? It’s the one question you need to answer right to do well in fantasy football. You won’t get it right every time. But at Bruno Boys, we help you work through those tougher decisions. That way, you make informed decisions on your starting lineup and will be confident in locking it in.
Our Quarterback Starts and Sits look at the line that separates QB1s and QB2s. We will rarely cover studs, unless it’s a sit recommendation based on matchup or we want to make note of a significant angle in the Quick Hits section at the end. Injuries happen too, which affects other players’ fantasy outlook.
We also consider super flex and two-quarterback leagues, which have become increasingly popular. There are owners who need to know when it’s safe to put Taylor Heinicke into a lineup or when the stars align to start rookies Mac Jones or Justin Fields. Lastly, bye weeks are a factor now.
Here are the Week 10 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Start.
Mac Jones, New England Patriots at Atlanta Falcons
It’s taken Mac Jones a long time to get to the point where he is being seen as a starting fantasy quarterback. He threw for three touchdowns for the first time in his NFL career against the Browns last week and scored 20.0 fantasy points for just the second time this year (22.0 points against the Jets in Week 7). As troublesome as the Browns defense can be on paper, Jones handled them with pinpoint accurate throws.
The Falcons should be a much more favorable matchup. They’ve allowed five opposing quarterbacks to score over 26.0 points, each scoring at least three touchdowns. All of them are established stars or young up-and-comers. Atlanta kept the rest, young and middling veterans, under 17.0 points. So depending on how this fame turns out, we could be seeing where Jones fits into the spectrum of current NFL quarterbacks.
