Stage type: Flat

Summary: Stage 10 should give the sprinters another chance to shine, but that uncategorized climb near the finish could liven things up a bit. There will also be two big corners to get through with around a kilometer to go before a straight and flat run-in to the line, so there will be plenty of incentive in the last few minutes of the race for the fast finishers to be and stay near the front.

Fantasy favorites: We are still going with Jasper Philipsen here as the stage favorite. Call us stubborn but we have not seen enough yet to dissuade us from seeing him as the top contender for the bunch sprints. That said, fantasy players have probably already used their Philipsen pick. If you are looking for alternatives, Mark Cavendish and Biniam Girmay are both great picks, and Dylan Groenewegen, Arnaud De Lie, and Fernando Gaviria could be in the mix too, while Wout van Aert might have a better chance with that late climb than he otherwise would.
