Week 10 of the Page 2 Fantasy Football Challenge is upon us. Each week, a guest picker chooses a QB, WR and RB. The only players off-limits are those selected by the previous week’s guest picker. The guest this week — Jeremy Biermaier, a history teacher at New Prague Middle School and an original member of the OT Dynasty Leagues — will go head-to-head against Star Tribune writer Michael Rand, who is not allowed to pick anyone projected by NFL.com to score in the top 10 at their respective positions:

Jeremy Biermaier’S WEEK 10 FANTASY PICKS

QB: Philip Rivers, Chargers

NFL.com QB projection: No. 10

Matchup: Broncos

Pretty safe bet that the Chargers will be playing catch-up in this game. I am hoping that Rivers shreds the Denver secondary as if Josh Robinson was starting at both corner spots.

RB: Matt Forte, Bears

NFL.com RB projection: No. 10

Matchup: Lions

Forte has been Mr. Reliable this year both running and receiving the ball. The only thing that could keep him down this week is a patented Ndamukong Suh karate kick.

WR: Victor Cruz, Giants

NFL.com WR projection: No. 9

Matchup: Raiders

The Giants have no running game and Hakeem Nicks cannot catch, leaving Cruz as their only offensive weapon. Does he get bonus points for making tackles after Eli Manning interceptions?

MICHAEL RAND’s

WEEK 10 FANTASY PICKS

QB: Christian Ponder, Vikings
