Some Week 10 Winners/Losers

Some Week 10 Winners

Michael Vick – So this probably won’t surprise you much, but Vick is one of my fantasy winners this week. His 80 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground would form a strong performance for most running backs, but on top of this he threw for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns and no interceptions. One of those touchdowns went to fellow fantasy winner DeSean Jackson on an 88-yard completion, and others went to Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant, and LeSean McCoy, who also turned out solid performances. On the ground, however, McCoy split carries with ex-Brown Jerome Harrison, whose 109 yards including a 50-yard touchdown burst qualified him as a fantasy winner this week.

Keiland Williams – Who? The only non-Eagle winner on Monday night was Washington RB Williams, who was subbed-in for injured backs Clinton Portis and Ryan Torain. Williams carried the ball 16 times for 89 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also caught 4 balls for 50 yards and a touchdown. If Torain and Portis stay down, Williams is definitely worth a waiver claim.

David Garrard – Garrard is having the best season of his career. This week was perhaps a career game for Garrard, who threw for a career-high 342 yards and 2 touchdowns with no interceptions. WR Mike Thomas was also a winner, catching 8 balls for 149 yards and a touchdown, but both players were helped out by Garrard’s last second hail mary touchdown heave. Maurice Jones-Drew was a fantasy winner for Jacksonville on the ground, rushing 24 times for 100 yards and 2 touchdowns. On the other side of the ball, Matt Schaub threw nicely for 314 yards and 2 TDs, and threw 9 of his 22 completions to stud WR Andre Johnson, who gained 146 yards and turned one of the grabs into a touchdown.

Dwayne Bowe – The top scoring WR/RB/TE in most formats, Bowe grabbed 13 catches for 186 yards and 2 touchdowns in a game where 9 touchdowns were scored through the air. This resulted in a few other fantasy winners: Matt Cassel (33/53, 469 yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs), Kyle Orton (22/34, 296 yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs), Jamaal Charles (19 touches, 121 yards, 1 TD), Knowshon Moreno (25 touches, 156 yards, 1 TD) and Brandon Lloyd (6 receptions, 90 yards, 2 TDs).

Roddy White – He grabbed 12 receptions for 138 yards and 2 touchdowns, including a game-winning 33-yard touchdown from fellow fantasy winner Matt Ryan (32/50, 316 yards, 3 TDs), who led an 80-yard drive in 45 seconds to win the Thursday night game this week.

Rob Gronkowski – It looks like the Patriots’ Tight End situation is going to be as tough to figure as their running back committee. Gronkowski netted 5 balls for 72 yards and all three of fantasy winner Tom Brady‘s touchdowns. Brady completed 30 passes for 350 yards, and also rushed for a 3-yard score. On the other side of the ball, Ben Roethlisberger also completed 30 passes, and gained 387 yards for 3 touchdowns and a pick-6, and added 12 yards on the ground. 2 of his touchdowns went to Mike Wallace, who turned his 8 receptions into 136 yards.

Some Week 10 Losers

Brett Favre – You shouldn’t be starting Brett Favre in your fantasy team (the Vikings shouldn’t even be starting him in their real-life team). He completed 18 of his 31 passes for just 170 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions.

Michael Turner – He averaged just 2.3 yards a carry on his 17 attempts, for just 39 yards and no touchdowns.

Jahvid Best – Best averaged even less per carry than Turner, gaining just 35 yards on 17 carries against the Buffalo God-damn Bills.

Steve Johnson – The 2nd-string Bills receiver returned to performing a bit more like a 2nd-string Bills receiver this week, grabbing just 3 balls for 37 yards and 0 touchdowns.

Reggie Wayne – Wayne has only one game this season with more than 100 yards, and has only caught 3 touchdowns so far. This week he caught just 3 balls for 34 yards.

Hines Ward – It wasn’t his fault – he was knocked out of the game in the first half after an unintentional helmet-to-helmet hit from Patriots safety James Sanders – but Ward had his first game in almost 190 games without a catch.

Aaron Hernandez – While Gronkowski caught 5 balls for 3 touchdowns, Hernandez played just 5 snaps on the weekend. He was targeted twice, but caught neither ball, scoring 0 fantasy points. He currently leads the league in drops for tight ends.

    Oliver/Flukes,

    Some concerns I have can you help. I have Best and I LOVED him until the last 5 weeks. Would you bench him for Blount the rest of the way?

    In a dynasty league would you try to get Hernandez while is value is horse shit?

    Is Bowye for real? some many times in his career he has appeared and gone back to jerking off in hotel rooms with strippers?

      I would bench Best for Blount without hesitation. Blount’s not injured, and he’s got a better yards/carry average by 1.7 YPC. He might not be a receiving threat like Best is, but apart from his week 2 explosion, Best is yet to gain more than 40 yards through the air this season. He also hasn’t rushed for more than 20 yards on a single carry apart from his 33-yard burst in the week 2 game. He ALSO hasn’t scored a touchdown since then.

      I would rather have Hernandez than Gronkowski in my fantasy team, but I’d rather have Gronkowski than Hernandez in my real team. Good job I’ve got both in my real team :). I think Hernandez would be a good option in a dynasty league too, by the way.

      As for Bowe… He’s scored 8 touchdowns in the last 5 weeks. He’s never scored that many in a season before. I think this might be for real.
