There have been a few fantasy Football stars who have severely underperformed this season. DeAndre Hopkins and Alshon Jeffery have been nothing short of disappointing all season long. Even quarterbacks like Cam Newton and Russell Wilson have struggled to give fantasy owners the return on investment they were expecting. But that doesn't mean they can't put up big numbers in future games. Which fantasy football stars should be benched in week 10?

1. DeAndre Hopkins.

It's time for fantasy owners to admit that Hopkins only has value when he plays against a weak pass defenses. The Texans are far too committed to running the ball 25 times a game for Hopkins to reach the value that he had last season.

And Brock Osweiler has been terrible all season. Hopkins should definitely be on your bench in week 10 if you have another option at wide receiver.

2. Christine Michael.

The Patriots are more than seven point favorites against the Seahawks on Sunday night and your fantasy decisions should reflect that betting line. Tom Brady and the Patriots should be leading all game, leaving limited opportunities for a player like Christine Michael to score fantasy points. Keep him on the bench in week 10.

3. Mark Ingram.

Yes, I know, he scored 28 fantasy points against the 49ers. But I think my grandfather would have scored a touchdown against that defense. Things will get way harder in week 10 against a Broncos defense that is elite when it comes to stuffing the run.

Add the share of carries that Tim Hightower will likely receive and Ingram will have limited value as a fantasy running back in week 10.

4. Every 49ers Player.

The Cardinals are favored by 14 points in this game, leaving the 49ers with a projected point total of 17. Really? That's only two potential touchdowns of fantasy value and Colin Kaepernick might run one of those in after throwing for three interceptions against a tough Cardinals defense.

DuJuan Harris might look enticing after last week's performance, but Carlos Hyde could be back this week. Either way, your fantasy team is in trouble if you need to rely on any players from the 49ers offense.
