Fantasy Football Live Blog for NFL Week 10
We've hit the 10th week of the 2012 NFL season, and as desperate teams such as the Dallas Cowboys try to keep their seasons afloat, the same can be said of many fantasy football squads clinging desperately to fading postseason dreams.
For those teams, avoiding injuries and striking it rich with some breakout performances this week is absolutely critical, and we'll be updating all the injuries, blowups, flops and more throughout the day right here with the fantasy football live blog for Week 10.
Sunday's action concludes with Arian Foster gaining 117 total yards and scoring the game's only touchdown in a 13-6 Houston Texans win over the Chicago Bears.
See you next week!
Jay Cutler of the Chicago Bears joins the parade of concussed quarterbacks today, but backup Jason Campbell provides a spark with a nice deep ball to Brandon Marshall.
First and goal Chicago in a 10-3 slogfest.
The Houston/Chicago game is so delightfully awful that I'm going to rant for a second.
In one of my leagues all I need from quarterback Matt Schaub is a mediocre effort. Maybe 10 points.
So far he's racked up -5.86.
I hate fantasy football.
In the truest spirit of kissing your sister the 49ers and Rams tie at 24.
I hate ties. Adopt the college overtime rule, flip a coin, whatever.
The 49ers and Rams head to overtime, Any Reid gets one step closer to riding off into the sunset, and we all get ready for the game of the day between the Houston Texans and Chicago Bears.
Three D/ST TDs for the Cowboys today. That's gonna swing a few games.
We have a final in Seattle, as the Seahawks throttled the New York Jets 28-7 behind 124 rushing yards from running back Marshawn Lynch and two Russell Wilson to Sidney Rice scoring strikes.
Meanwhile, New York quarterback Mark Sanchez completed all of 9 of 22 passes with a lost fumble.
And Tebow's not playing why?
Well, if you scooped up the Dallas Cowboys as a waiver wire defense figuring that the Philadelphia Eagles turn the ball over a lot boy do you look smart.
The Dallas defense and special teams just scored twice in less than two minutes, on a punt return followed by a pick-six by cornerback Brandon Carr.
Not a whole lot of note in either Seattle or San Francisco, where the Rams and Seahawks both lead by 14-7 scores at intermission.
Solid first halves for running Marshawn Lynch of the Seahawks and Steven Jackson of the Rams, each of whom have found the end zone.
The Cowboys lead the Eagles 10-7 in something of a yawner of a first half highlighted by the Vick injury and the solid play of Dallas tailback Felix Jones, who has amassed 69 total yards and a touchdown.
More quarterback news.
With the San Francisco 49ers trailing the St. Louis Rams 14-7 quarterback Alex Smith is being evaluated for a concussion of his own after a helmet-to-helmet hit.
Colin Kaepernick, anyone?
More news from the City of Brotherly Love.
Michael Vick has a concussion and is done for the day, so the hopes of the Eagles in Week 10 lie with the big rookie from Arizona.
Big news in Philly.
After taking a couple of shots on the Eagles' last drive quarterback Michael Vick is being looked at by trainers, and it appears that rookie Nick Foles is about to make his NFL debut.
Hot start to the game between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles for Dallas running back Felix Jones, who racked up 41 total yards and scored the touchdown that knotted the score at 7.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and running back Doug Martin stayed hot on Sunday, downing the San Diego Chargers 34-24 behind two touchdown passes from quarterback Josh Freeman and 119 total yards from the Muscle Hamster.
San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers had one of his best games of the season in defeat, throwing for 337 yards and three scores, although a late pick-six was a backbreaker.
Also, one of the hot waiver wire pickups this week will certainly be wideout Danario Alexander of the Chargers, who hauled in five catches for 134 yards and a score in the loss.
Fantasy Standouts from the New England Patriots 37-31 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Passing: Ryan Fitzpatrick made it four games in a row with over 300 yards against the Patriots, throwing for 337 yards and two scores in the loss.
Rushing: Both Stevan Ridley and Danny Woodhead had good games in the win, but it was Fred Jackson of the Bills that stole the show, gaining 115 total yards and scoring twice.
Receiving: Donald Jones was the top dog among pass-catchers on the day, hauling in six catches for 74 yards and a score in defeat.
The Denver Broncos handled the Carolina Panthers with ease on Sunday, winning 36-14 in a game where Peyton Manning once again topped 300 yards, albeit with only one touchdown pass.
Panthers tight end Greg Olsen was HUGE in the loss, racking up nine catches for 102 yards and two scores and making some fantasy owners who played the matchup (this guy) very happy.
Pop that champagne, '72 Dolphins.
The NFL has no more undefeated teams, as the Atlanta Falcons fell to the New Orleans Saints 31-27.
Quarterbacks Matt Ryan and Drew Brees combined for over 700 yards and six touchdown passes, but the real stars of this game were tight ends Jimmy Graham and Tony Gonzalez, who combined for 18 catches, 268 yards, and four touchdowns in a wild affair.
Updating an earlier post, wide receiver Julio Jones of the Falcons did return after suffering a first-quarter leg injury, finishing with four catches for 75 yards.
OK, Giants fans, you can start freaking out now.
Not only were the Giants shellacked by a Cincinnati Bengals team that had lost four in a row, but New York quarterback Eli Manning turned the ball over three times and failed to throw a touchdown pass.
A couple of HUGE fantasy performances in Minnesota, where the Vikings downed the Detroit Lions 34-24.
Adrian Peterson topped 170 rushing yards for the second straight week, while Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson exploded to the tune of 12 catches for 207 yards and a score.
We have our first final of the day, as the Tennessee Titans obliterated the Miami Dolphins 37-3.
Big game for Chris Johnson of the Titans, who rushed for 126 yards and a score, while Reggie Bush (29 total yards, lost fumble) and Ryan Tannehill (3 INTs) stunk up the joint for the suddenly floundering Dolphins.
Just in case there was any question as to who the best running back in the National Football League is it's being put to rest right now in Minnesota.
Adrian Peterson of the Vikings has now topped 150 yards on the ground for the second straight week, piling up 165 yards on 24 carries, including a 61-yard touchdown.
Not bad for a guy that tore his ACL and MCL last December.
If you play fantasy football on Yahoo! then today has been a frustrating one.
The fantasy provider is apparently experiencing server issues, and while they report that they are working on a solution I can say that the seven leagues I play in there have been down all day.
Just take a deep breath folks. Not much else can be done about it.
If, like me, you were so desperate for running back help that you actually started New England Patriots running back Danny Woodhead in a league, then right now it's happy dance time.
61 total yards and a pair of touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) in a 31-17 Patriots lead.
Some days it's better to be lucky than good.
Make that four touchdown passes for Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, as Eli Manning's second interception of the day has officially opened the floodgates.
31-6 Cincinnati over the defending Super Bowl champs.
Huge day shaping up for Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith.
Granted, he only has two catches, but both have gone for scores in a big lead for Baltimore.
Joe Flacco is closing in on 300 yards passing, Baltimore leads 41-17.
As I've telling folks all week...start Joe Flacco at home.
