1. CAR - QB Teddy Bridgewater to undergo MRI

Source: NFL Network - Ian Rapoport

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured knee, according to a source. The team does not believe the injury is serious but will wait for the results of the MRI. He has not been ruled out for the Week 11 game at this point.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

PJ Walker would get the start against the Lions if Bridgewater can't go. It is a huge factor in whether to start your Panthers next week.

Los Angeles Rams OT Andrew Whitworth (knee) was carted off the field after suffering a knee injury during the Week 10 game and will not return.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Whitworth is a cornerstone of the Rams offensive line, but his play has dropped off in recent years. Next week against the Bucs will present more problems for Jared Goff if Whitworth is out.

3. WAS - TE Logan Thomas busy in Week 10

Source: ESPN

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas posted four receptions for 66 yards on six targets in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Thomas was solid today because Alex Smith attempted 55 passes after the team fell behind 24-3. He'll be a what the heck tight end play against the Bengals next week.

4. TB - TE Rob Gronkowski scores again

Source: ESPN

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski posted two receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Gronkowski had one downfield catch that was reminiscent of big plays in his prime, and also caught an easy short score to make a solid day for anyone who trusted him this week after a rough game vs. the Saints. He's back to being a TE1 heading into a matchup with the Rams.

5. PHI - RB Boston Scott finds end zone

Source: NFL.com

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott rushed for 63 yards and one touchdown on three carries against the New York Giants in Week 10. He also caught one pass for 11 yards during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Scott still has rosterable value as the clear backup to Miles Sanders and came through for best ball teams today. He had big plays in both games against the Giants, but this time it wasn't enough for the Eagles to get the win.

6. WAS - Antonio Gibson runs for two scores

Source: ESPN

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson rushed 13 times for 45 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions while adding four receptions for 20 yards on four targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Gibson wasn't particularly effective as a runner but he was still a worthy RB2 play this week who finished as an RB1 in PPR leagues. Keep him in the lineup against the Bengals next week.

7. WAS - QB Alex Smith throws for 390 yards

Source: ESPN

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith completed 38-of-55 passes for 390 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions in his first start since that devastating leg injury in 2018.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Smith missed JD McKissic on what could have been a touchdown early and the running backs finished the other three touchdowns drives, so all of Smith's yards resulted in no touchdowns and a merely adequate fantasy afternoon. He should be worth a look in 2QB/Superflex leagues against the Bengals next week.

8. WAS - RB J.D. McKissic totals 15 touches

Source: ESPN

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic rushed eight times for just six yards with a touchdown and he added seven receptions for 43 yards on a game-high 15 targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

McKissic is clearly a core part of this offense, especially in the passing game. Consider him a solid RB2 in PPR leagues against the Bengals next week.

9. CAR - RB Mike Davis totals 11 touches

Source: ESPN

Carolina Panthers RB Mike Davis rushed seven times for a team-high 32 yards in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers while adding four receptions for 12 yards on five targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Davis was quiet starting for Christian McCaffrey as the Panthers offense didn't get much as the game went on. We'll have to watch McCaffrey's practice reports this week to see if Davis is startable against the Lions next week.

10. TB - Seven grabs for WR Antonio Brown

Source: ESPN

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown registered a game-high seven receptions for 69 yards on eight targets in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Brown proved worthy of a start in PPR leagues and could have had a huge day if Tom Brady hadn't missed him when he was open deep. He'll be an upside WR3/Flex against the Rams next week.

11. GB - WR Davante Adams reaches end zone

Source: NFL.com

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams caught eight passes for 66 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10. He was targeted 12 times during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Adams got banged up with an ankle injury and lost a fumble in this game, but his touchdown pushed him up to a WR1 game in PPR leagues. He'll square off with the Colts questionable outside corners next week.

12. PHI - RB Miles Sanders has solid outing

Source: NFL.com

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed for 85 yards on 15 carries against the New York Giants in Week 10. He also caught two passes for 10 yards during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Sanders looked like he was in top form, but Corey Clement vultured him at the goal line and Boston Scott scored the other Eagles touchdown on a long run. Better days are coming for Sanders.

13. CLE - RB Kareem Hunt goes over 100 yards

Source: ESPN

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed 19 times for 104 yards in Week 10 against the Houston Texans and he added three receptions for 28 yards on four targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Hunt is showing that even when Nick Chubb is back on the field he is a strong RB2 who shouldn't be put on the bench.

14. TB - RB Ronald Jones runs for 98-yard TD

Source: ESPN.com - Field Yates

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed 23 times for 192 yards and a 98-yard touchdown in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers. He became the fourth player in NFL history with a 98-yard or longer run.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Jones speed from USC finally showed up on an NFL field, and in a thicker and more Sunday ready body. This backfield has been a moving target all year, but Jones might have finally settled it with this run that broke the Panthers backs. He should be in an RB2 next week against the Rams.

15. JAX - WR Keelan Cole accounts for two TDs

Source: NFL.com

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Keelan Cole caught five passes for 47 yards and one touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 10. He also had a 91-yard punt return for a touchdown during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Cole was barely targeted last week but played a bigger role this week and his speedy punt return was responsible for the Jaguars hanging in this one until the end. He'll be a desperation play against the Steelers next week.

16. NYG - Two touchdowns for RB Wayne Gallman

Source: NFL.com

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman rushed for 53 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Gallman had a nifty corkscrew in the air on one score and bulldozed into the end zone on a second. He has scored in four straight weeks and should be carried as a low-end RB2/strong bench depth through the bye.

17. PHI - WR Travis Fulgham held to one catch

Source: NFL.com

Philadelphia Eagles WR Travis Fulgham caught one pass for eight yards against the New York Giants in Week 10. He was targeted five times during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

James Bradberry had his number as we found Fulgham's kryptonite. He'll still be a WR3/Flex start against the Browns this week, but his dream 2020 might be coming back to earth.

18. TB - WR Chris Godwin leads way in Week 10

Source: ESPN

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin finished with six receptions for a team-high 92 yards on six targets in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Godwin and the rest of the Bucs pass offense had a big bounceback game. We won't be worrying about whether to start Godwin against the Rams next week.

19. GB - Three touchdowns for QB Aaron Rodgers

Source: NFL.com

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 24-for-34 for 325 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10. He also rushed for four yards and one touchdown on three carries during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Rodgers wasn't affected by the wind and had his second strong fantasy day in gusty conditions this year. He'll face a tougher defense in Indianapolis next week but is still a QB1 in Week 11.

Back to Top


20. DET - QB Matthew Stafford to undergo X-rays

Source: NFL.com

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (thumb) said he is scheduled to undergo X-rays on the thumb he injured during the Week 10 game. He went 24-for-33 for 276 yards and three touchdowns against the Washington Football Team in Week 10.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Stafford had an excellent fantasy game against a defense that was good on paper. If his thumb is ok, he'll have a good matchup against the Panthers next week.

Back to Top


21. CAR - WR D.J. Moore flirts with century mark

Source: ESPN

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore finished with four receptions for a game-high 96 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Moore was able to take advantage of busted coverage to be the only Panthers target to have a good game in Week 10. He'll be a dicey start in Week 11 if Teddy Bridgewater is out against the Lions.

Back to Top


22. JAX - James Robinson surpasses 100-yard mark

Source: NFL.com

Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson rushed for 109 yards on 23 carries against the Green Bay Packers in Week 10.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Packers run defense is still one to target as Robinson ran well all day and helped the Jaguars hang in until the end. Next week against the Steelers will be much more challenging.

Back to Top


23. PHI - QB Carson Wentz finishes with 208 yards

Source: NFL.com

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz went 21-for-37 for 208 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the New York Giants in Week 10.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Wentz was a massive disappointment in his first game with close to a full set of weapons against a defense he had posted a great game against just three weeks ago. Now we can't really trust Wentz in any matchup - including next week at Cleveland - until he goes off on our bench.

Back to Top


24. TB - QB Tom Brady tosses three TDs in Week 10

Source: ESPN

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 28-of-39 passes for 341 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers while adding a rushing score.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Bucs also settled for three short field goals in this one or the Bucs would have been in the 50s. After last week's hiccup, Brady is on track to be an elite fantasy quarterback, although he faces the tough Rams defense next week.

Back to Top


25. NYG - WR Darius Slayton finishes with 93 yards

Source: NFL.com

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton caught five passes for 93 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10. He was targeted seven times during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Slayton got a little banged up with a shoulder issue but also made a huge play to help the Giants get the win and ended up posting his best game in a month. He's still worth carrying through the bye.

Back to Top


26. WAS - WR Terry McLaurin totals 122 scrimmage yards

Source: ESPN

Washington Football Team WR Terry McLaurin finished with seven receptions and 95 yards on nine targets in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions and he added a 27-yard rush on his only attempt.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

McLaurin is a must start WR1 at this point and Alex Smith will clearly keep his value intact. He'll face the Bengals beatable pass defense next week.

27. HOU - RB Duke Johnson runs for 54 yards in start

Source: ESPN

Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson rushed 14 times for 54 yards in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns, his former team.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Johnson adequately effective as a runner, but not involved as a receiver. He was a dud this week, but should still get the start against the Patriots next week and is worth rostering as at least emergency start material.

Back to Top


28. NYG - QB Daniel Jones posts over 300 total yards

Source: NFL.com

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones went 21-for-28 for 244 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10. He also rushed for 64 yards and one touchdown on nine carries during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Giants actually used Jones as a runner by design and he responded with a long touchdown run and good gains in the red zone to set up a Wayne Gallman touchdown. He's a much better threat as a fantasy quarterback with this ability unlocked and should be carried through the bye.

Back to Top


29. CLE - RB Nick Chubb posts 126 yards, TD in return

Source: ESPN

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed for a game-high 126 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Week 10 against the Houston Texans. He ripped off a 59-yard run late in the game, but stepped out of bounds on purpose at the 1-yard line so the team could kneel on the ball to run out the clock.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Chubb is definitely back to his old self and the Texans run defense continues to be a target for fantasy lineups. Chubb and the Browns get the Eagles while Houston has the Patriots crowded backfield on the schedule next week.

30. GB - WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has monster game

Source: NFL.com

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught four passes for 149 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10. He was targeted six times during the game.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Allen Lazard wasn't ready for this week and Valdes-Scantling took advantage to further build trust with Aaron Rodgers. He'll be a what the heck flex against the Colts next week even if Lazard is back.

31. TB - Just 10 total touches for RB Leonard Fournette

Source: ESPN

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette rushed eight times for just 19 yards in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers and he added two grabs for 11 yards on three targets.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Fournette seems to be clearly behind Ronald Jones and is only a PPR flex when we think the Bucs might be playing more in pass mode.
