Teddy Bridgewater – Carolina Panthers QB

As expected, Teddy Bridgewater had another stellar performance (and his best fantasy outing) against Kansas City. He eclipsed 300 yards for the third time this season along with three total touchdowns, netting 28.30 fantasy points. The addition of dynamic playmaking from Christian McCaffrey proved crucial against the Chiefs who had previously allowed a little over 200 passing yards per game.

Bridgewater may not be thought of in the upper echelon of fantasy quarterbacks but he has put up at least 19 fantasy points in five games this season. He also ranks fifth in the NFL with 2,416 passing yards. This production is admirable and the team’s troubles are not all on him, but the signal-caller and the Panthers have to learn to win close games, especially when they have the ball last.

Start or Sit in Week 10?


Remember when we said Bridgewater had his best fantasy game against the Chiefs? Well, guess which team he had his worst fantasy performance against?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

The Buccaneers have been very tough on quarterbacks this year and will be more motivated after being lit up last week against New Orleans.

Mike Davis – Carolina Panthers QB

This is looking like it will be a lost season for Christian McCaffrey, so Mike Davis needs to step up here. His production from Weeks 2-5 was incredible and he averaged 22.65 fantasy points per game. Since Week 6, he’s only averaged 9.4.

On the bright side, Davis is still a viable red-zone option – when Curtis Samuel isn’t used as a running back – and is still one of the league’s best at breaking tackles.

If Davis can’t get things going, we may see Reggie Bonnafon’s carries increase. The second-year running back out of Louisville was signed to the active roster after missing five games with a high ankle sprain.

Start or Sit in Week 10?


Starting a running back against Tampa Bay’s defense is a recipe for disaster. The Buccaneers are the best in the NFL against the run and are only giving up about 78 rushing yards per game to opponents.

Todd Bowles’ scheme has kept McCaffrey at bay dating back to last year and even in a blowout, Alvin Kamara only netted 49 total yards. If you have to take a flyer on Davis it may work out if he’s able to score in the red zone.
