Week 10 Fantasy Football Studs
Editor’s Note: Get the full breakdown on today’s podcast, and read up on the Week 10 Duds.
Jared Goff vs HOU
25 for 37 for 355 yards and 3 TDs
King Goffrey is rolling at just the right time against just the right kind of defenses… the ones who stink against the pass. Hey at least Sammy Watkins caught another TD!
Case Keenum @WSH
21 for 29 for 304 yards, 4 TDs and 2 INTs
One minute he was lighting it up with Diggs and Thielen and after 2 terrible picks, Teddy B was warming up. After 5 wins in a row, did he save his job?
Kirk Cousins vs MIN
26/45 for 327/1/1 — 4/5/2 rushing
Keenum’s dueling mate got it done through lots of dink-and-dunks and 2 rushing TDs on the ground. Captain Kirk is shaping up to be a formidable fantasy playoff caliber QB.
Matthew Stafford vs CLE
17/26 for 249/3/1 — 4/17/0 rushing
It was pretty putrid to start as the Lions were losing to the lowly Browns at home. Stafford got it done as the chalkiest of DFS plays this week.
C.J. Beathard vs NYG
19/25 for 288/2/1 — 5/15/1 rushing
We all saw this coming… CJ Beat-hard, more like CJ BEAT the Giants at football and HARDly anyone noticed. Yea.
Mark Ingram @BUF
21 rushes for 131 yards and 3 TDs(!)
That exclamation mark says it all.
DeMarco Murray vs CIN
14 rushes for 42 yards and 2 TDs, 4 catches for 30 yards & 1 TD on 4 targets
I thought he was done? Murray’s 3 TDs was an early holiday gift for fantasy owners who felt confident enough to start the enigmatic RB. Happy Hanukkah.
Austin Eckler @ JAX —
10 rushes for 42 yards, 5 catches for 77 yards & 2 TDs on 5 targets
Eckler of course was started in your 24 team only RB league. Good work Eckmeister.
Alvin Kamara @BUF —
12 rushes for 106 yards and 1 TD, 5 catches for 32 yards on 5 targets
Kamara has turned into a certifiable RB1. The fact that Ingram and him can do this together is even more amazing.
Robert Woods vs HOU
8/171/2 on 10 targets
Can he keep this up? We discuss in Hot Fire Fantasy Questions for Week 10.
Adam Thielen @WSH
8/166/1 on 12 targets
Thielen tore up the middle of the field as the Redskins were defenseless against the slot. He has the safest floors of any WR as he’s caught at least 5 passes in every game this year.
A.J. Green @ TEN
5/115/1 on 7 targets
So make sure you pay attention to this nugget of wisdom: if you punch someone in the helmet, you end up as a fantasy stud the next week. Simple.
Sterling Shepard @ SF
11/142/0 on 13 targets
Shepard will continue to be peppered with targets in a lost cause of a season. He is PPR gold.
Chester Rogers vs PIT
6/104/1 on 6 targets
Rogers got behind the Steelers defense on a long-bomb. This is his one shining moment for 2017. But can we please don him the nickname Chester “The Cheetos Cheetah” Rogers? Please….
Golden Tate vs CLE
6/97/1 on 7 targets
Tate is as dependable as they get. He is currently the WR6 in PPR leagues.
Brandon LaFell @ TEN
6/95/1 on 10 targets
LaFell has been a sneaky second option in the Bengals passing game and caught a long TD from Andy Dalton on broken coverage on a post route.
JuJu Smith-Schuster @IND
5/97/1 on 7 targets
This guy just doesn’t stop. With Antonio Brown having a rough go of it, Schuster has been what fantasy owners thought they were getting in Martinis Bryant… just with even cooler social media game.
Davante Adams @CHI
5/90/1 on 8 targets
Adams looks like Brett Hundley’s preferred option as he’s seen a 25% target share since Hundley’s takeover. He’s a red zone monster with his TD coming on a back shoulder throw.
Jimmy Graham @ARI
6/27/2 on 9 targets
It’s hard to forget that Thursday night was a “TD red-zone dream” for Graham owners. He still looks like a shadow of the leaping dominator he used to be.
5/64/1 on 7 targets
BIG GRESH EAT.
Garrett Celek vs NYG
4/67/1 on 6 targets
If you are a tight-end, and you play the New York Football Giants, you are going to end up on this list. Travis Kelce next week is a done deal.
Austin Hooper vs DAL
6/49/1 on 6 targets
Hoop had back-t0-back red zone targets that ended with a play-action easy 1 yard TD. He’s seen 6 targets 3 weeks in a row so if there is an Atlanta offensive resurgence, he should be part of the gameplan
Evan Engram @ SF
6/31/1 on 9 targets
Engram continues to be Eli’s bestest buddy and has averaged 9.5 targets per game over the last 4 weeks. Is he even a TE though?
Deshone Kizer @DET
21/37 for 232/1/1 — 7/57/1 rushing
Russell Wilson @ARI
22/32 for 238/2/0 — 5/19/0 rushing
Todd Gurley vs HOU
11/68/0 — 6/68/0 on 7 targets
Isaiah Crowell @DET
16/90/1 — 1/5/0 on 2 targets
Marquise Goodwin vs NYG
1/83/1 on 2 targets — 1/18/0 rushing
Marqise Lee vs LAC
6/55/1 on 11 targets
Robby Anderson @ TB
4/85/1 on 7 targets
Larry Fitzgerald vs SEA
10/113/0 on 14 targets
Michael Thomas @BUF
9/117/0 on 10 targets
Stefon Diggs @WSH
4/78/1 on 5 targets
Vernon Davis vs MIN
7/76/0 on 11 targets
Eric Ebron vs CLE
2/39/1 on 3 targets
