Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts

With the Indianapolis Colts coming off a bye in Week 9, Jack Doyle should nearly be, if not fully, 100 percent healthy after battling a hip issue to begin the season. In his first game from injury, Doyle saw seven targets, catching six for 70 yards and a touchdown. But one thing that stood out was the fact he had more snaps at tight end or wide out as compared to Eric Ebron — who’s on pace for a Pro Bowl season in his own right.

The Colts face a Jacksonville Jaguars that his dealing with issues of their own, which could set up Andrew Luck and his tight ends for a nice day.

Eli Manning, New York Giants

Manning hasn’t had the best season in the world, compiling eight touchdowns — compared to six interceptions — over the course of eight games. The good news is that the yards are coming for Manning and the offense, as Manning is averaging 297.1 yards a game while completing 68.3 percent of his throws. With 2,377 thus far, Manning is fourth in the league in passing when it comes to yards. Manning is going against a San Francisco defense that is struggling to generate turnovers, picking off just two passes.

With Kirk Cousins and Deshaun Watson on bye weeks, Manning is a viable streaming option if better options aren’t available to pick up. The two-time super bowl winner is available in 15 percent of leagues across Yahoo!, ESPN, and NFL.com.

Nick Mullens, San Francisco 49ers

Mullens might be the greatest story heading into Week 10. The former Southern Miss star, who went undrafted out of the 2018 draft class and entered the season as the third-string quarterback, crushed the souls of Raider fans with 262 yards and three touchdowns. on a national stage.

The New York Giants are giving up 243 passing yards a game, but are susceptible to giving up points at 25.3 a contest. Mullens will be on a bright stage once again, and he could be a viable streaming option if the Giants continue to struggle.

Duke Johnson, Jr., Cleveland Browns

It doesn’t come as a surprise to see Johnson have a great day — with nine receptions, 78 receiving yards and two touchdowns — in the first game following the firings of head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley. If last week a painted picture of the role Johnson has in this new offense, then he should continue to see his touches go up. After a big performance during Week 9, its evident Johnson has a strong rapport with Baker Mayfield.

Johnson could be a top-10 play in PPR leagues.
