Fantasy football analyst Sal Vetri will use this space to deliver his keys to victory every week of the 2023 NFL season.
Finding No. 1: The best RB spot of the week belongs to Jahmyr Gibbs
David Montgomery returned in Week 10 but didn’t regain the strong role we saw earlier this season, playing just 38% of the snaps and only seeing 39% of the Lions’ carries. There’s a chance he was being limited coming off the injury, but it was the rookie Jahmyr Gibbs who continued to operate as the lead back.
Gibbs played 58% of the snaps and handled 61% of the backfield opportunities, his most in a game with Montgomery healthy this season. This week Gibbs and the Lions are a nine-point favorite against the Bears’ 29th-ranked defense. Starting RBs in similar matchups average over 14 points this season.
Finding No. 2: The sketchy RB spot of the week belongs to Isiah Pacheco
Pacheco saw career-high usage before his bye week, playing a season-high 70% of the snaps and handling 76% of the Chiefs carries. He’s a rest-of-season buy, but you need to temper expectations this week.
Kansas City has a brutal matchup against the Eagles’ defensive line. Philadelphia allows the fewest yards and fantasy points to opposing RBs. The 8.9 points per game they allow is 18% fewer than any other team. Pacheco can still get there on touchdowns, but don’t expect him to be efficient in this matchup.
Finding No. 3: Pick up and play Jaylen Guyton
He might be the sneakiest pick-up-and-play of the year so far. In Week 10, Guyton ran 85% of the routes and earned six targets. He turned this into a solid 12.1-point fantasy day. This isn’t anything crazy, but he’s trending in the right direction and has previous years of chemistry with Justin Herbert.
Guyton has been a boom-or-bust downfield option in the past, but in Week 10 he saw appealing usage. His average depth of target was 10 yards downfield, 41% less than his career average. This will lead to more catchable targets and reliable fantasy…
