As the NFL season progresses, fantasy football players find it increasingly difficult to properly adjust lineups, but they know there are always players they can rely on each Sunday. 

They key to success in fantasy football is playing the right guy with the best matchup to ensure you get the most points possible. 

Nobody likes to lose, especially if it's to a family member, friend or co-worker. As always, feel free to leave a comment with any questions you might have about your lineup. 

Here a the must-starts at every position for Week 10. 


QB, Tim Tebow 

The Denver Broncos' quarterback finally thrived last week, and that confidence he now has will carry over into Week 10 against division rival, the Kansas City Chiefs. 

Tebow was all over the place, showing that he can throw and that he'll be a force on the ground for a long time. 

The Chiefs are coming off an embarrassing loss of the Miami Dolphins, and Tebow will stay on the track of success.

Winning may be difficult, but he will put up good stats against the No. 20 defense in the NFL, which means you should start him because he's in for a solid fantasy day. 


RB, Steven Jackson

The St. Louis Rams hit the road to take on the Cleveland Browns, which means it's a no-brainer that Jackson will be in your lineup. 

Since getting back to full health, Jackson has been a work horse for the Rams, including a current two game streak of 130 or more rushing yards. 

The Browns rank 30th in the NFL against the run, and last week they allowed the Texans to have two running backs rush for over 100 yards. Cleveland's struggles against the run makes Jackson an easy start for Week 10. 

A fan's take on the Browns' defense: 


WR, Greg Jennings

Aaron Rodgers has a lot of weapons to chose from, but Jennings is still his favorite target. Last week was an off day for Jennings, but he will be back with a strong performance in Week 10. 

The Green Bay Packers host their division rival in the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night, and Jennings is going to deliver just like last time.

In Week 7, Jennings had his best game of the season against the Vikings, and he'll find a ton of success again this Monday. Minnesota ranks 29th against the pass, and Rodgers and Jennings will team up for a fantastic performance. 


TE, Scott Chandler 

This one is a gamble, but I'm buying into Chandler for Week 10.

He's not the obvious start at the position, as other big-name guys like Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski are always must-starts, but he will come through on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. 

Patrick Morgan of the Buffalo Sports Daily tweeted just how well Chandler has been this season. 

The Bills take on the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday, who have been subpar against tight ends this season. He isn't owned in a lot of leagues, so chances are he's on waiver wires and you'd be smart to pick him up. 

Chandler doesn't get a ton of yards every game, but when starting a tight end you want a guy that will find the end zone, and Chandler excels in that area for the Bills.

This is by far the easiest pick for Week 10 because the surging Ravens take on the slumping Seattle Seahawks.

Sure, the game is being played in Seattle, but the Ravens aren't going to lay an egg. They know they've struggled against weaker teams on the road this season, and they'll bring their A-game to avoid another collapse away from home. 

The Seahawks rank 30th in the NFL in total offense, whereas the Ravens have the No. 1 defense in the NFL. Baltimore isn't going to slip on Sunday because they will prove they can destroy the weak opponents they play.
