What We Learned on Week 10?

In case you slept through the weekend and didn’t see any football, here are the cliff notes to Week 10. A weekly player analysis to help you figure out what to do with some of your players this week.

Quarterbacks

Jay Cutler (CHI): Cutler has been one of the most consistent players in the last six weeks. Since he was out in Seattle with an injury, Cutler has managed to score at least 17 fantasy points in all of his games. This week he has a really tough matchup against the Broncos, but he could have a nice game since Denver will be rolling with their backup QB.

Kirk Cousins (WSH): This guy is the definition of “spot starter” based on matchup. He has just three games with 15+ points, but when he plays at home against a weak defense, Cousins could led your team to victory.

Carson Palmer (ARI): I was worried about Palmer going forward because he really has a tough schedule, however after watching him destroy the Seahawks secondary in Seattle, I would feel comfortable starting him every week as my QB1.

 

Running Backs

Jeremy Langford (CHI): With Langford as the Bears’s starting running back, the Chicago’s team has two wins in a row. The rookie froom Michigan State is the best RB in the last two weeks and with his ridiculous numbers, he is the fifth most productive back in the last four weeks. If you have Matt Forte, make sure you have Langford.

Charcandrick West (KC): Another great backup running back with three straight games with at least 18 fantasy points, that’s crazy! Those are elite numbers. He isn’t Jamal Charles, but so far the Chiefs are leaning on him and they’re still on the hunt for a playoff spot. Expect big things from the “Shark” West as your RB2.

Jay Ajayi (MIA): The Boise State product has been productive with at least 4 points in his two first games as a pro. Lamar Miller is still the starter, but if he goes down, Ajayi could become a good RB3/flex option, and right now he could help you on bye weeks on 12+ team leagues.

Wide Receivers

Brandin Cooks (NO): Looks like Cooks finally is going to be fantasy relevant. In the last four weeks only Antonio Brown from the Steelers has more points than him. He has been quick, explosive and finding the endzone. If Brees stays hot, Cooks could regain his WR2 status that he lost early in the season.

Eric Decker (NYJ): Only Odell Beckham has more touchdowns than Decker, who has been very consistent, having all of his eight games played with at least 9 fantasy points, and five of them with more than 10. Marshall is also getting a lot of production, but Decker is a solid and consistent WR2 every game.

James Jones (GB): He started red hot the season but after the bye week he hasn’t been able to score 6 fantasy points. In the last two weeks Davante Adams has been stealing all of his targets (32), while the veteran only has 8. At this point Jones belongs to your bench and if you need space to add some player, you can drop him.

Davante Adams (GB): Talking about Packers WRs. Adams is the most targeted guy in Green Bay the last four games and he could be the rising star on that offense. Only Antonio Brown has more targets than him in the last couple of weeks, but Adams needs to improve his catching ability to be a serious WR2.

Martavis Bryant (PIT): With Big Ben throwing him the ball and Brown on the other side, Bryant could have a huge end of the season performance. With only five games played he is 28th among WR, averaging 83 yards per game and having already 5 touchdowns.

Michael Floyd (ARI): I really thought that John Brown was going to be the man behind Larry, but Floyd has been playing a lot better with a TD in his last four games and increasing his productivity every week (50 yards, 59, 106 and 113). Please pick him up if he is available on your league, if not try to trade for him before his value hits sky high.

Mike Evans (TB): Say what you want about this guy and his dropped passes, but in three of his last four games has passed the 100 yard mark and is clearly the Winston’s top weapon. I do believe he could keep this pace and help you win every week.

 

Tight Ends

Jordan Reed (WSH): I still can’t believe that he is owned in barely 40% of the leagues on nfl.com. In all the games he has played, he has at least 8.2 fantasy points and 6 TDs. Cousins loves him in the red zone and Reed keeps proving his great hands and play-making ability.

Delaine Walker (TEN): He is not a flashy TE, but in 7 of his 8 games played he has at least 6 fantasy points, With no WRs available on Tennesse, Walker could be very valuable the next few weeks since Mariota sees him as a safe target.
