INDIANAPOLIS — Fortunately, there are no bye weeks in fantasy football.

Unfortunately, I think I could use one right about now.

I had my second-straight sub-100-point outing last week in my head-to-head matchup against fellow Colts.com writer Kevin Bowen, and fell to a bleak 2-7 on the year.

But I'm a glass-half-full type of guy, so I will say: at the beginning of the year — after admitted early struggles — I said I'd let Kevin take the first half of the season, and then I'd come roaring back. I feel a little better about my Week 10 lineup — even though Kevin is oozing with confidence with his, as well — so we'll see how that prognostication turns out.

So, without further ado, here's my full Week 10 FanDuel lineup, sleepers and passes, as well as the full results from last week's action.

As always, send me any chatter, questions, "LOL"s or anything else to @AWalkerColts on Twitter using #FanDuelFF.

Also, due to the bye week, we already shot our FanDuel Fantasy Focus show on Wednesday … BUT, be sure to catch next week's edition at the same Bat Time (3:30 p.m. Friday), same Bat Channel (on Colts.com and/or on the Colts Mobile App).

Andrew's Week 10 FanDuel Lineup:

QB: Cam Newton ($7,800; vs. Kansas City): I think Cam is playing with a bit of a chip on his shoulder, and that's not good for opposing defenses. Now, his offensive line isn't playing great — he was sacked five times last week — and the Chiefs do a good job in the secondary, but I think he returns to form this time around.

RB: David Johnson ($9,400; vs. San Francisco): He's the highest-priced player in the league this week, and there's a reason for that. I'm guessing Kevin will have Johnson on his passes list — and that's fine — but I just don't think you can pass up on this matchup against this really bad 49ers team.

RB: Lamar Miller ($7,500; at Jacksonville): Houston's on the road, so that means Brock Osweiler will be terrible, so they have to get their offense from somewhere — thus the pick of Miller. Now, Miller is dealing with a shoulder injury, but he's had almost two weeks off and he's facing the 23rd-ranked run defense in the league.

WR: Dez Bryant ($7,500; at Pittsburgh): He's got to get going sometime, and you can bet he's champing at the bit seeing Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott do their thing, and wants to add that dynamic pass catcher to the mix. Now, Prescott has shown he won't take too many chances down the field, but you have Bryant on the field for a reason.

WR: Kelvin Benjamin ($7,000; vs. Kansas City): He's been solid when it comes to receiving yards, catching 70 or more yards in six of eight games played this year, but the touchdowns have mostly alluded him. I think Cam Newton and him link up for at least one score against the Chiefs.

WR: Jordan Matthews ($5,900; vs. Atlanta): You'd expect somewhat of a shootout in this one between the Eagles and the Falcons, and if that's the case, then Mathews is going to get in the act. He's quietly putting together a 1,000-yard receiving season at this pace, and Carson Wentz is looking his way a lot.

TE: Tyler Eifert ($6,100; at New York Giants): Eifert is coming off a big performance in London against the Redskins a couple weeks back before the Bengals hit their bye week. Now he's taking on the Giants, who rank 25th in passing defense, and will have a hard time stopping Eifert in the red zone.

K: Chandler Catanzaro ($4,500; vs. San Francisco): I had a few options at this price point at kicker, and went with the team playing the 49ers. It's hard to imagine the Cardinals not doing well in this matchup, and although Cantanzaro hasn't been all that great this season, he was pretty much by best bet here.

DEF: Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($4,300; vs. Chicago): Jay Cutler's back. He crushed the Vikings heading into the bye week. But, Jay Cutler's also back. You just never know if he'll be good Jay Cutler or bad Jay Cutler. Also, another spot here where I had to pick a limited amount of defenses with the budget I had. Tampa's defense has struggled at home the past two games, so…

Andrew's Guys To Pass On:
WR Julio Jones ($8,800; at Philadelphia): He'll get his against the Eagles, I just don't think he'll get the 22 points necessary to get the full value out of him.

QB Tom Brady ($8,300; vs. Seattle): Tom Brady vs. the Legion of Boom. We've seen this one before, right? Brady is playing lights out — don't get me wrong. And he's at home. But, again, he can't keep this pace up every single week, can he?

RB Devontae Booker ($7,800; at New Orleans): His price jumped way up this week, but there are rumors he's going to be relegated to backup duties with Kapri Bibbs taking starters' carries. A little too much uncertainty here — even against the Saints — for me to justify picking him this week.

QB Dak Prescott ($7,700; at Pittsburgh): Prescott just torched the Browns (good for you), but the Steelers aren't the Browns. There's better options at this price point at the quarterback spot this week than Prescott.

Andrew's Sleepers ($6,000 or less)
WR: Jordan Matthews ($5,900; vs. Atlanta): You'd expect somewhat of a shootout in this one between the Eagles and the Falcons, and if that's the case, then Mathews is going to get in the act. He's quietly putting together a 1,000-yard receiving season at this pace, and Carson Wentz is looking his way a lot.

RB DuJuan Harris ($5,200; at Arizona): He had a huge game last week with 20.7 points, and he's still at just $5,200. Momentum is a real thing in football, and you can imagine the 49ers are going to keep going his way.

RB Rob Kelley ($5,300; vs. Minnesota): With starter Matt Jones out against the Bengals in London, Fat Rob, as they call him, excelled in his first-career start, and head coach Jay Gruden alluded to the fact that Kelley might be the man going forward at running back. A good option here if you don't have much money left and need a second running back.
