Biggest Studs

DeAndre Hopkins
Week 10 vs BUF: 7 receptions on 12 targets for 127 yards & 1 (GLORIOUS) touchdown
Upcoming Schedule: @SEA, @NE, LAR — Fantasy Playoffs: @NYG, PHI, SF
Hopkins is arguably the greatest receiver in the game.  He’s been great this season despite joining a new team in a year with a shortened training camp and no preseason games.  Hopkins deserves the top spot in the Studs & Stinkers article this week because of the absolutely incredible catch he made to score a touchdown as the game clock ran out, securing a victory over the Bills.  Kyler Murray deserves a lot of credit too for a perfect pass to Nuk, who was covered by three defenders.  Here’s a video of the catch:

D’Andre Swift
Week 10 vs WAS: 16 rushes for 81 yards | 5 receptions on 5 targets for 68 yards & 1 TD
Upcoming Schedule: @CAR, HOU, @CHI — Fantasy Playoffs: GB, @TEN, TB
Before the game, the Detroit coaching staff came out and said that D’Andre Swift was going to be the feature back this week.  They delivered on their promise, and Swift made the most of his first 20+ touch game in his young career with 23 fantasy points in ½-ppr scoring.  We should expect him to handle a similar workload moving forward.  Swift has a great upcoming schedule, including four matchups against bottom-8 defenses (pts given up vs opposing RB) in the next five weeks.  Swift is coming into form nicely, and the stars are aligning for him to flirt with top-10 RB production rest of season.

Tee Higgins
Week 10 @ PIT: 7 receptions on 9 targets for 115 yards & 1 TD
Upcoming Schedule: @WSH, NYG, @MIA — Fantasy Playoffs: DAL, PIT, @HOU
The 2020 rookie wide receiver class has been nothing short of extraordinary so far this season, especially considering rookie receivers typically take 2-3 years to pan out.  Higgins is one of the more exciting prospects among this year’s class, especially considering he has Joe Burrow throwing him the ball.  Higgins is going to be special in this league, and we’re already seeing it happen.  Higgins has scored 11+ fantasy points in six of his last seven games, and he’s averaged 8 targets a game during that time.  Higgins has been great, but he hasn’t been getting enough attention in typical redraft leagues.  Higgins is a strong WR2 until we see otherwise, although he has a tough matchup against Washington in Week 11.  Higgins is a good trade target, especially if you’re in a keeper league or dynasty league.

Biggest Stinkers

Jared Goff
Week 10 vs SEA: 27 completions on 37 attempts for 302 yards & 1 Fumble
Upcoming Schedule: @TB, SF, @ARI — Fantasy Playoffs: NE, NYJ, @SEA
Goff had a very favorable matchup against Seattle this week, a team that’s allowed a top-12 fantasy QB performance in eight of the previous nine games.  Goff has been up and down this season, but he’s a player that you should be able to stream in a good matchup…or so we thought.  I think this means we need to adjust our expectations in positive matchups moving forward.  Goff shouldn’t be rostered except for dynasty leagues and leagues that can start multiple QBs. But be prepared…his name is going to come up again in the fantasy playoffs because he faces the Jets and Seahawks in Weeks 15 & 16, which are both incredible matchups.  Goff should be considered a risky dart throw rest of season, especially when your championship depends on him!

Jonathan Taylor
Week 10 @ TEN: 7 rushes for 12 yards | 2 receptions on 2 targets for 25 yards
Upcoming Schedule: GB, TEN, @HOU — Fantasy Playoffs: @LV, HOU, @PIT
This one hurts.  Taylor has been less than impressive this season, and he certainly doesn’t appear to be the monster that we all thought he’d be if given an opportunity.  Teammate Nyheim Hines has simply played better than Taylor, who seems to lack vision on the field.  The Colts have the second-best remaining strength of schedule in terms of fantasy RB matchups.  Taylor has hurt your fantasy team each of the three weeks, and his opportunities have declined recently.  Don’t drop Taylor, but he isn’t startworthy unless we see him take a step forward.
