After two weeks of bye week frenzy for fantasy football owners, Week 10 starts the push to the playoffs. Season long owners will face all important late season games in the standings while DFS owners are running out of Sundays to find the perfect lineup to add to the stakes.

Four teams will be on bye this week to keep the waiver wire demand high in the first week after two consecutive Sundays with six teams on their respective byes. With Detroit, Oakland, Indianapolis, and Buffalo all on byes, top fantasy names such as Matt Stafford, Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, T.Y. Hilton, and LeSean McCoy amongst others will need to be replaced by some of the sleepers in this week’s list of the best underrated fantasy options for Week 10:

Chris Ivory, Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a new offensive coordinator after the team fired Greg Olson, a coaching move that has brought running back Chris Ivory’s fantasy value back to life. New Jags coordinator Nathaniel Hackett made Ivory his workhorse in his first game in charge last Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs and the trend should continue into this week’s game against the Houston Texans.
