Week 10 Recap

 

  • The Bucs earned their first win of the season by beating the Dolphins 22-19 on Monday night. The Tampa Bay rushing attack and its defense teamed together to pull out the victory. But it appears to have come at a price. Bucs rookie running back Mikes James fractured his left ankle on the opening drive. James, who has been filling in for Doug Martin (shoulder, injured reserve) the past month, was shredding the Dolphins on the ground on that opening drive. He piled up 41 yards on five carries and had a 17-yard run called back due to an illegal motion penalty. James was well on his way to back-to-back 100-yard games after he gashed the Seahawks for 158 yards in Week 9. On the play he was injured, James was tackled from behind at the one-yard line by Dannell Ellerbe. James’ ankles got pinned awkwardly between the turf and Ellerbe. The cart then came out to whisk James away to the locker room. Initial X-rays revealed a fractured left ankle, and James is “out indefinitely.” He’ll undergo further tests this week.
  • As Sunday of Week 10 finally reached it’s night cap, a big time shootout was expected as Dallas traveled to New Orleans and that expectation was met. By one team. The Saints steamrolled the Cowboys and Drew Brees was his normal, excellent self. In a night where Jimmy Graham was held to 59 yards and no touchdowns, which actually should earn Dallas some sort of trophy, Brees made use of Darren Sproles while the Ghost of Marques Colstons Past paid a visit to the fake football world in a Scrooge-like twist. On the other side of the ball, Tony Romo threw for just 128 yards and Dez Bryant had exactly one reception. So it goes in the land of fantasy footballing! Let’s take a further look at some highlights and lowlights from Week 10′s fantasy action:
  • Drew Brees: The Saints spread the ball out all over the field on Sunday night, and even got Mark Ingram involved. Yes, Mark Ingram! Brees hit Marques Colston, Darren Sproles, and Pierre Thomas all seven times each on his way to 392 passing yards and a four touchdowns. Brees has averaged 369 passing yards per game over New Orleans’ last three contests and did his damage this week without Jimbo Graham heavily involved. Not a great fantasy football playoff schedule for Brees and New Orleans (STL, CAR twice) but if anyone can overcome tough matchups it is indeed the New Orleans Saints.
  • Ben Tate: With Arian Foster now out for the season, Ben Tate began his reign as the Texans starting running back in uneventful fashion. Tate handled 15 carries for 55 yards (3.7 ypc) and also caught three passes for eight yards. Tate is no picture of health himself due to sore ribs, but as long as he is upright, he still has some skills and get Jacksonville in Weeks 12 and 14. For you crazy deep leaguers, Dennis Johnson handled the backup duties.
  • Golden Tate: As Seattle moved to 9-1, Tate put together a great game catching six of seven targets for 106 yards and a score. The absence of Sidney Rice is beneficial for Tate, as he is primarily used on the outside in Seattle. Percy Harvin’s much anticipated return will likely hurt Doug Baldwin more than Tate, so get with the program and start the Golden One next week as Seattle gets Minnesota at home.
  • Alshon Jeffery: No matter who is under center in Chicago, the top two Bears wide outs pump out some serious fantasy points. This week, it was a combination of Jay Cutler and Josh McCown that targeted Jeffery 18 times, of which Alshon hauled in nine passes for 114 yards. Since Week 3, Jeffery has only one game under 60 yards receiving, which makes him a weekly start in my book. Check it out at your local library. Do they still have those?
  • Riley Cooper: Mr. Cooper was at it again in Week 10, catching three passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Cooper now has racked up 241 yards and a five-pack of scores over the last two weeks as Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles has been equally as hot. Cooper was likely snagged off waivers in your league last week, but don’t sweat missing out, as Cooper won’t continue averaging 30 yards per catch even with a relatively friendly remaining schedule.
  • Jake Locker: In his third game back after returning from a hip injury, Locker felt like he needed more time on the couch, so he went ahead and added a possible Lisfranc injury to his foot. Locker just can’t stay healthy and is now expected to miss the remainder of the 2013 season. It feels like about “MoveonfromJakeLocker O’clock,” but I get the feeling that Tennessee will give him another shot next season before throwing in the towel after they go 5-11.
  • Tavon Austin: Austin has been a tough nut to crack over the course of the 2013 season, as the St. Louis top draft pick has done nothing in the fantasy production department since his two scores in Week 2. This Sunday, Austin decided to get involved as he took a punt return back 98 yards for a touchdown and added two catches for 138 yards and two scores. Austin was essentially playing in his old high school track spikes as he showed the world his absolutely blazing speed. This was a nice picture of what the future holds for Austin and the Rams, but the giddiness should be primarily felt by Austin’s dynasty owners. Redraft owners should temper expectations as big plays are possible, but Austin has had more than three offensive touches just once since Week 3.
  • T.Y. Hilton: This is just your weekly reminder that T.Y. Hilton deserves legitimate weekly WR1 consideration, as he is just flattening opposing defenses since Reggie Wayne was lost for the season. Even in a game where Andrew Luck and the Colts couldn’t get in any type of rhythm, Hilton still caught seven of eight targets for 130 yards. That is 14 catches, 251 yards and three touchdowns over the last two weeks for Hilton who is now the centerpiece of Indianapolis’ offense (aside from their quarterback, of course). Keep riding this train to title town.
  • Terrell Pryor: Pryor jumped out to a quick start on Sunday with a rushing touchdown early on, but did almost nothing after that point as he continued to be hampered by a knee injury. Pryor’s fake football bread and butter, his wheels, failed him as he ran for only 19 yards this week against the New York Giants. Without a healthy stack of rushing yards, Pryor has a difficult road to fantasy relevance so plant him on your bench until he gets healthy and gets running again.
  • A.J. Green: Thanks to a late game Hail Mary that was gift wrapped at Macy’s and then handed to A.J. Green, the Cincinnati stud wide receiver pumped out his fifth straight 100+ receiving yard performance. Eight grabs for 151 yards and a touchdown was the final line for Green, who is looking every bit as uncoverable as he looked last season. Along with Gio Bernard (who also had himself a nice Week 10), the Bengals have some incredible weapons to utilize in covering up Andy Dalton’s mediocrity. Green will continue his battle with Dez, Demaryius, Marshall and Megatron for wide receiver supremacy next week vs. Cleveland.
  • Mario Manningham: In his 2013 debut, Manningham had only three catches for 30 yards as San Francisco lost to Carolina on Sunday. What is notable about this three for 30 stat line is the fact that Vernon Davis left with a concussion and Manningham led the 49ers in pass targets with six. Manningham is worth an add, as Colin Kaepernick is desperate for weapons at this point, especially if VD misses time. He is a fairly “snooze-worthy” add but a necessary add nonetheless.
  • Andre Brown: The Gmen were so eager to put the Brandon Jacobs/Peyton Hillis era behind them that they immediately force fed Andre Brown 30 carries on Sunday. Brown turned those 30 totes into 115 yards and a score in a very successful 2013 debut. If you were the smart cookie in your league that stashed Brown a few weeks back, go grab yourself a cold one and a pat on the back. Brown and the Giants get Green Bay at home in Week 11, where Brown will likely get another sizeable workload.
  • Peyton Manning: Eli’s much cooler big brother added another huge performance to his 2013 game log on Sunday, throwing for 330 yards and four touchdowns. The performance was great in all respects, but Manning came away from the game sore after taking a low hit late in the contest. Manning admitted after the game that he will have an MRI on Monday to check in on his sore ankles and knee, so stay tuned for an update. Don’t go donating your bright orange #18 jersey or making trade proposals just yet, but it is something to keep an eye on.

For most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. You never want to concern yourself with what your opponent is doing, just aim to get to this number, hope for more and let the chips fall where they may. To reach this goal you will need (at minimum) 12 points from each of your starting skill positions (over 20 from your QB; more than a few from your kicker and at least 11 from your defense). This is the threshold for the IN/OUT predictions.

 

Here are the basic league settings that we are basing our predictions on…

Roster:

With all that behind us, here are the FANFOOD Fantasy Football 3 IN/OUT results for week 10 followed by a recipe for Pineapple Marinade, great for pork or chicken.

 

 

Hits

 

Pierre Thomas rushed 17 times for 87 yards and one touchdown in Sunday night’s Week 10 win over the Cowboys, adding seven catches for 24 yards and a second touchdown. Thomas picked up his first rushing score of the season on a garbage time touchdown late in the fourth quarter. He led the Saints in carries, but was outperformed on a per-play basis by Mark Ingram. Thomas continues to be a factor in the passing game along with Darren Sproles, and finished with seven receptions for the second straight week.

 

Coby Fleener caught four passes for 33 yards in Indianapolis’ Week 10 loss to the Rams. Another week, another disappointing effort for Fleener, who was the intended target on two of Andrew Luck’s three interceptions. Fleener didn’t deserve the blame for either pick, but it underscores the fact that when Indy throws to him, bad things happen far too often. Fleener has just seven catches for 97 yards in two games since Reggie Wayne was lost for the season

 

Steve Smith caught six passes for 63 yards in Sunday’s Week 10 win at San Francisco.Smith led the team in targets with 11 and the six catches are his most since Week 1.

 

Forget the statistical possibility that the Titans could get in the playoffs, they don’t deserve to be there. The Titans’ loss to the Jaguars is the epitome of the Mike Munchak era in Tennessee; they can’t do the little things right and they can’t win in the division. while the Titans DST was not great giving up 21 points, the squad had 3 sacks and 2 picks, plus the special teams return the ball 96 yards, and in all helped your team more than it hurt.

 

Misses

 

Hakeem Nicks caught four passes for 49 yards in New York’s Week 10 win over the Raiders. Nicks showed a little wiggle after the catch, but didn’t get the opportunity to go off for a big game with the Giants dialing up just 22 passes for a free-falling Eli Manning. Nicks’ catches were his only four targets of the afternoon. Manning’s decline coupled with Nicks’ noticeable loss of explosion has him mired in WR3 territory

 

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Mike James fractured his left ankle in Monday night’s game against the Dolphins and is “out indefinitely.” James gashed the Dolphins for 41 yards on five carries on the opening drive, getting the offense down to the one-yard line before he was carted off the field following a tackle where Dannell Ellerbe landed on James’ ankle and trapped it between the turf and Ellerbe. James is still undergoing tests, but initial X-rays revealed a fracture. The severity isn’t yet known. Brian Leonard has been getting much of the work in James’ absence, though Bobby Rainey has been sprinkled in and has scored a touchdown. James’ rookie season may be over.

 

Ryan Mathews rushed 14 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in San Diego’s Week 10 loss to the Broncos, adding one catch for two yards. Mathews’ fourth-quarter score came on an honest-to-goodness goal-line carry, as he executed from the Broncos’ one-yard line. It was a rare event for a back the Bolts typically don’t trust in money situations.
