Hard to believe we are already at Week 10 of the 2023 season. That means the fantasy playoffs are now just one month away. Subsequently, winning these upcoming games is crucial for clinching a spot in the postseason tournament. FullTime Fantasy‘s exclusive Fantasy Football Matchup Analyzer: Week 10 tool shows you which players have favorable upcoming schedules.

These are the players you want to target in trades. Also, this tool can help break ties in players who are closely matched in our weekly fantasy football rankings.


Brock Purdy (San Francisco 49ers) – This is the ideal time to buy low on Purdy. San Francisco took a three-game losing streak into their Week 9 bye. However, three out of their next four come against teams ranked in the bottom 10 in terms of surrendering fantasy points to quarterbacks.

C.J. Stroud (Houston Texans) – Stroud gets a tough task in Week 10 trying to follow up his historic Week 9 outing. But the next three games look appealing, taking on the Cardinals, Jaguars, and Broncos. Also, those three games all occur at NRG Stadium, where Stroud has played exceptionally well.

Bryce Young (Carolina Panthers) – Week 10 was another dud in Chicago. Also, next week looks challenging traveling to Dallas. However, things ease up after that. Young still has games against the Buccaneers, Falcons, and Jaguars left on the schedule. All bottom 10 squads versus the pass.

Running Backs 

Dameon Pierce & Devin Singletary (Houston Texans) – The Texans also have a favorable slate for the backfield. However, the Texans rank just 27th in rushing. Perhaps the upcoming schedule that features two of the NFL’s three worst run defenses will turn that around. Pierce is hurt and Singletary did very little with his 15 touches last week. Subsequently, this is a good ‘buy low’ opportunity.

Tony Pollard (Dallas Cowboys) – Pollard has been a disappointment, but redemption starts this week. Pollard lit up New York in Week 1 to the tune of 82 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Now, the Giants are down to their third quarterback and the Cowboys are massive home favorites in Week 10. Additionally, the Commanders rank 31st in run defense, and both Seattle and Washington are below average.

Rachaad White (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – White now ranks fourth among all running backs with a 78.1% snap share. That kind of massive volume puts him on the RB1 radar for the next month. White has caught 33 of the 34 targets he’s seen this season. That 97% catch rate leads the NFL.

Wide Receivers 

Brandon Aiyuk & Deebo Samuel (San Francisco 49ers) – Hopefully, the week off gave San Francisco’s offense a chance to refresh and reset. Samuel is now healthy and poised to re-enter the WR2 conversation beginning with this week’s trip to Jacksonville to take on a Jaguars’ secondary yielding the 12th-most fantasy points to opposing wideouts. Also, Aiyuk has topped 50 yards in six of seven games this season- a figure he should blow by weekly with the upcoming soft schedule.

Adam Thielen (Carolina Panthers) – Another quiet outing in Chicago opens up a good trade window for Thielen. After topping double-digit fantasy points in six straight, Thielen has been held under 50 yards in back-to-back games. However, things look promising in Weeks 11 and 12 facing two bottom 10 secondaries.

DeAndre Hopkins (Tennessee Titans) – One of the opponents Thielen faces also has an appealing schedule. DeAndre Hopkins has absorbed 17 targets in two games with Will Levis under center. Now that Levis has been named Tennssee’s starter, D-Hop should continue to feast on a schedule that looks very tempting starting this week in Tampa.

Tight Ends 

George Kittle (San Francisco 49ers) – Kittle has been erratic, with two massive 20-plus point games and three under five points. If the Kittle manager in your league is tired of dealing with those swings, put out a trade offer. The 49ers are about to get healthy in a hurry. And the schedule for Kittle is indicative of a player who is about to post top-5 production down the stretch.

Dalton Schultz (Houston Texans) – The absence of Robert Woods has benefitted Schultz, who is fantasy’s TE2 with 16.8 fantasy points per game over Houston’s last four contests. Schultz has built a rapport with C.J. Stroud and that connection will remain strong over the next four games. Only the Texans themselves have ceded more fantasy points to tight ends than the Bengals and Broncos.

Chigoziem Okonkwo (Tennesee Titans) – In addition to three games against four upcoming opponents who rank in the bottom 11 in fantasy points allowed to tight ends, Okonkwo gets to feast on Houston’s league-worst TE defense
