Winning in daily fantasy isn't always about finding contrarian picks.

Yes Nick Bosa Jersey , you want to differentiate your lineup to increase your odds at winning in tournaments, but you can’t ignore the studs that are still worth their high price tags. Here are the studs to consider for Week 10:MATTHEW STAFFORD, QB, Detroit ($6,800 DraftKings/$8,200 FanDuel)This isn’t recency bias with Stafford coming off a big Week 9 performance. Stafford would have been a terrific play even without putting up 361 yards and two touchdowns on the Packers. The Browns are strong against the run and one of the weakest teams against the pass. Only Marcus Mariota failed to throw for a touchdown against the Browns, and six of the seven other opposing quarterbacks have two or more passing touchdowns. Marvin Jones has also picked up his play over the past few weeks, helping Stafford’s numbers. The Lions running game has slowed of late setting up Stafford for a high-volume passing day and a high daily score.BILAL POWELL, RB, New York Jets ($4,000/$6,000)With Matt Forte likely out for Week 10 (make sure that he is), Powell becomes a must-own at these prices. When Matt Forte missed Week 4 against the Jaguars, Powell put up 163 rushing yards and a touchdown on 21 attempts. Powell has been hampered by splitting touches all year, but Forte’s absence would set him up for 20-plus touches. The Buccaneers are in a freefall and are among the worst teams in the league at stopping the run. Alvin Kamara just put up 152 total yards and two touchdowns against them last week, and Adrian Peterson and LeSean McCoy both topped 20 points against the Bucs in Weeks 6-7. Powell could sleepwalk his way to 3x-plus value.STERLING SHEPARD, WR L.J. Collier Jersey , New York Giants ($5,500/$5,700)While the 49ers are slightly better against the pass than the run, it’s just relative, as they are beyond miserable against the run. They have allowed 11 double-digit scores on DraftKings with two topping 20 points and eight double-digit scores on FanDuel. Sterling Shepard is one of the two remaining quality weapons in the Giants passing game (Evan Engram the other) and the only one of the starting receivers that’s on the field. Shepard saw nine targets last week, catching five for 70 yards and can easily reach and top that this week.CAMERON BRATE, TE, Tampa Bay ($4,100/$5,700)While we are preying on the Buccaneers defense for Powell, we’re going to do the same with Brate on the other side. Nick O’Leary, a mediocre tight end, managed four catches for 51 yards against the Bills last week. In the four previous games, David Njoku, Rob Gronkowski, Anthony Fasano and Austin Hooper all scored … Gronkowski twice. Brate came up quiet last week, but that was against a much-improved Saints defense and within Jameis Winston playing hurt , then replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick mid-game. With a week to prepare, Fitzpatrick will be more effective this week, and Brate had come into Week 9 with five straight games with at least four catches and 60 yards.STEELERS DEFENSE ($3,700/$4,600)Often, you don’t need to overthink things when it comes to defenses. The Steelers head to Indianapolis and the Colts are allowing the most FPPG to opposing defenses (9.3). The next closest team is the Texans at 8.1 FPPG. The Colts have already allowed 35 sacks and six DST touchdowns, both of which are league highs. Five defenses have hit double-digits against the Colts, and the Steelers boast the second strongest pass defense, only behind the Jaguars. With the Steelers also able to score plenty, they should push the Colts and Jacoby Brissett to be more aggressive, which will lead to more potential turnovers, sacks and fantasy points. SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — A couple of late-game missed kicks proved to be the difference between making the playoffs and staying home last season for the Los Angeles Chargers.With a chance to end this exhibition season on a winning note, Roberto Aguayo delivered and made his case to be the Chargers kicker when the season starts.Aguayo kicked a 26-yard field goal on the final play of the exhibition season to lead Los Angeles to a 23-21 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night.“To hit a game-winner, it counts,” Aguayo said. “I’m glad our team was able to get up close and give me a shot.”Aguayo is in a battle with Caleb Sturgis to win the kicking job for the Chargers (2-2) and got the opportunity for the winner against San Francisco. Coach Anthony Lynn had rotated his kickers during the game, with both making 36-yard field goals and extra points before Aguayo got the final chance after a 63-yard kick return by Detrez Newsome set up the winning drive.“Both guys have kicked extremely well the last couple of weeks D.K. Metcalf Jersey ,” Lynn said. “It’s been a healthy competition.”It was a sweet moment for Aguayo, who was a second-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2016 but quickly flamed out. He missed nine field goals as a rookie and then was waived by the Buccaneers last summer. He made all three field goals this preseason.“I feel like I’ve done great,” he said. “When I’ve had opportunities, I’ve done well. I’m really proud of myself from where I’ve come since last year. It’s been a long road and a long journey.”The kick spoiled a storybook night for San Francisco’s Jack Heneghan. He was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Dartmouth as a camp arm for the Niners (1-3), joining the franchise his father, Lal, used to work for as a lawyer.Heneghan got almost no snaps in team drills in practice this summer and didn’t play in the first three exhibition games. But with most of the regulars sitting out Thursday, coach Kyle Shanahan gave him a chance and Heneghan made the most of it. He went 8 for 9 for 58 yards and ran twice for 17 yards to lead the two TD drives.“I grew up watching the Niners, going to games back in Candlestick,” Heneghan said. “I’ve always been a big fan of the team. I would have been happy to have an NFL opportunity as a rookie anywhere. It was that much more exciting to do it at home in front of friends and family.”Jeff Wilson scored on a 2-yard run and Jeremy McNichols had a 6-yard TD run with 2:58 to play.Cardale Jones threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Andre Patton , and Terrell Watson scored on a 4-yard run on the final play of the first half for the Chargers.CAMEO APPEARANCESWhile most of the regulars got the night off, two defensive starters got on the field for brief appearances for the 49ers. Defensive lineman Solomon Thomas had two tackles for losses on the opening drive before calling it a night. Thomas had missed time this summer with a concussion.Linebacker Reuben Foster, who left last week’s game with a concussion, played three series and knocked Detrez Newsome for a 6-yard loss after a catch. Foster will sit out the first two games with a suspension following two offseason arrests.UNDER PRESSUREChristopher Landrum had two sacks in the first half for the Chargers, including one that forced a fumble by Nick Mullens and set up a field goal for Los Angeles.ROSTER PUSHSeventh-round draft pick Richie James Jr. delivered another strong performance in his drive to make San Francisco’s roster as a reserve receiver. He caught seven passes for 80 yards and added a 23-yard punt return. He finished the preseason with 15 catches for 192 yards and a TD.“I’m a playmaker,” James said. “That’s what I do. I come in and make plays when I get the ball in my hands.”NATIONAL ANTHEMAll players on both teams appeared to stand during the playing of the national anthem.INJURIESChargers: WR Artavis Scott left with an ankle injury.49ers: FB Malcolm Johnson left with a foot injury.NEXT UPChargers: Host Kansas City for season opener Sept 9.49ers: Visit Minnesota for season opener Sept. 9.
