What We Learned in Week 10

Bills vs Vikings could be a Super Bowl matchup

First of all, Justin Jefferson had one of the best catches I have ever seen. That being said, this is not directly fantasy news, but man what a game. Bills and Vikings had everything from insane one-handed catches to an overtime showdown. Justin Jefferson led the Vikings to a win, but the Bills were right there. Josh Allen has been cold the past couple of games, along with dealing with an injury. Kirk has been slinging it, and we could see this game again in February.

Christian Watson and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine blew up

These two WRs combine for less than 10% being owned on rosters, yet both landed in the top 5 fantasy WRs this week. Both are unlikely to sustain this, but both ended up with 8 targets a piece and over 100 yards and multiple TDs. It is highly unlikely that this will happen again, but in deeper leagues, either may be worth a roster spot.

Jonathon Taylor may bounce back with Jeff Saturday

JT had his breakout game this year. He took 22 carries for 147 yards amd 1 TD in his first game under Jeff Saturday. Multiple things contributed to this output though. First off, JT is back and healthy. Second, Jeff Saturday is a new coach with old school values, meaning the Colts are not going to be fancy and they will run the rock. Finally, Matt Ryan is back, which means that JT will see his volume. Despite an early rough stretch, JT is a high volume low-end RB1 moving on.

Jeff Wilson and D'Onta Foreman led crowded backfields

Both Wilson and Foreman were projected to compete for touches this week, yet both ended in the top 7 fantasy backs this week. Jeff Wilson outtouched Raheem Mostert 18-12, and Wilson turned his touches into 119 rushing yards and a touchdown. D'Onta Foreman turned... 31 carries... into 130 yards and 1 TD as well. Both are going to be used heavily moving forward making them high-end RB2s moving forward.

Cole Kmet was productive yet again

Early struggles are out the window with Kmet. Fields and Kmet are connecting, similar to Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews, and this should continue the rest of the year. Kmet is a TE1 that is owned in less than half of teams. Considering TE is a wasteland, I would highly consider picking up Cole Kmet.

Rachaad White is a must add if Lenny is out

White has been being utilized more, but saw his work pay off when replacing an injured Leonard Fournette. White landed as the 16th highest fantasy RB, but is a game script away from being higher. He got 22 carries, which he turned into 105 yards. The Bucs will run the ball heavily, no matter efficiency. If Fournette is out another week, you can expect White to earn a heavy workload.
