The top experts in Week 10 put together some of the highest weekly DailyOverlay scores of the season with Moxyball, DailyFantasySportsRankings and FantasyWired each receiving a DailyOverlay score of 5.0 or higher. With some of the top experts on the seasons struggling during Week 10, the race for the top expert of the season is tightening up, which should make for a fun last seven weeks of the regular season.
