Week 10 NFL FanDuel Salary Movers

Maurice Harris made the most of his opportunity in Week 9, and he's moving up the salary scale. Who else joins him in Week 10?

Things can change quickly in fantasy football. To quote Ferris Bueller, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

We're here to "look around" and make sure we don't miss any week-to-week salary changes that could pay dividends on FanDuel.

Maybe a player had an outlier performance and saw their salary rise too high, making them a sub-optimal play. Perhaps a player saw an increase in their role but played on Monday night after salaries for the following week's slate already came out, and therefore they haven't been priced accordingly.

This week's article will take a look at which players salaries have changed the most from Week 9 to Week 10 and dig into why those moves happened.

Now that you're ready, let's get to it!

Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Week 9 Salary: $7,100
Week 10 Salary: $7,600

Ryan Fitzpatrick makes the list for the second straight week, and he's the biggest mover at quarterback once again. Despite a bad first half last week against the Carolina Panthers, Fitzmagic recovered to complete 24 of 40 passes for 243 yards and four touchdowns. An early interception in his own territory set the stage for the Tampa comeback and his overtime interception sealed their fate. That's the "Fitzmagic" we know if you've played fantasy football at any time in the last ten years. He still managed to clear 26 FanDuel points at $7,100, providing a great return for the price, especially if you stacked him with O.J. Howard.

This week the Bucs face the Washington Redskins at home as three-point favorites. With a 51-point over/under, the game script sets up nicely for Fitzpatrick to have another productive day. He's still affordable even with the salary increase, priced as just the 12th highest quarterback along with Alex Smith. Washington ranks 14th in passing defense but have given up back-to-back games of over 300 passing yards to Eli Manning and Matt Ryan.

Other Big Movers:

Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts: $8,300 | $7,800
Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions: $7,300 | $6,800
Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars: $6,500 | $6,800

Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers

Week 9 Salary: $4,900
Week 10 Salary: $5,900

Jamaal Williams is an interesting name on this list. The trade of Ty Montgomery to Baltimore reduces the Green Bay committee to Williams and Aaron Jones. With Montgomery out of the picture, Williams played almost 42 percent of the snaps Sunday night against the New England Patriots, his highest mark since Week 3. He converted nine touches into 54 yards but operated as the clear second option behind Jones.

Williams' salary appears to be getting a bump for his Week 10 matchup. The Packers are 10 point favorites at home against the Miami Dolphins, who have given up top-12 games to running backs seven times this year. A more defined role as the second running back also figures into the equation but at just $600 less than Jones, it's hard to play him as anything but a GPP dart.

Other Big Movers:

Alvin Kamara, New Orleans Saints: $8,000 | $8,800
Tevin Coleman, Atlanta Falcons: $6,600 | $7,300
Tarik Cohen, Chicago Bears: $7,200 | $6,400

Maurice Harris, WR, Washington Redskins

Week 9 Salary: $4,700
Week 10 Salary: $5,900

With Jamison Crowder out and Paul Richardson on injured reserve, Maurice Harris has played over 80 percent of the snaps the last two weeks while operating as the number two wide receiver alongside Josh Doctson. Harris had his breakout game Sunday against the Falcons, catching 10 of 12 targets for 124 yards and 17.4 FanDuel points. With an increase in salary of over 25 percent, Harris is the biggest mover of the week at any position.

He gets the other side of the Redskins/Buccaneers matchup, facing their 31st ranked passing defense. The Bucs have given up huge games against slot receivers, where Harris will see the majority of his snaps, to Tyler Boyd (24.1 FanDuel points), Jarvis Landry (20.7), and Nelson Agholor (19). To play pieces of the Chiefs, Rams, Chargers, and Saints offenses, we'll need to find some value on the slate, and Harris is a good option.

Other Big Movers:

Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals: $6,800 | $7,800
Doug Baldwin, Seattle Seahawks: $5,700 | $6,300
Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Green Bay Packers: $4,700 | $5,400

Eric Ebron, TE, Indianapolis Colts

Week 8 Salary: $6,400
Week 10 Salary: $5,400

The Colts were on their bye last week but in Week 8 played the hapless Oakland Raiders. Jack Doyle returned from injury and played 73 percent of the snaps, leading the Colts with seven targets which he turned into six receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown. Eric Ebron played just 21 percent of the snaps but caught all three of his targets for 37 yards and a touchdown.

With Doyle back, their salaries are now going in opposite directions and Ebron is the biggest mover of the week at tight end, down $1,000. The matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars isn't great for either, as the Jags rank 11th versus the tight end position. However, Ebron leads all tight ends with 15 red zone targets and the Colts 1.71 pass-to-run ratio is eighth in the league, meaning he could still find volume.

Other Big Movers:

Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts: $4,900 | $5,600
Nick Vannett, Seattle Seahawks: $4,600 | $5,200
Vernon Davis, Washington Redskins: $4,600 | $5,100
