NFL Week 10 Fantasy Football: Winners and Losers
This slideshow shows who you should play and who you should sit. Hope you enjoy it. You better, because this took me a long time. By the way, watch No. 12 and No. 18 duke it out on Sunday night. Which by far is the best matchup this week. Too bad I can't watch it. I have a nine o' clock bedtime. Enjoy!
Winner Number One: Drew
Drew is by far the greatest and most productive QB this season. Drew is fourth in the league in passing yards , he's thrown 17 TD's, and has a 106.1 QB passer rating this year. He might be adding a nice MVP trophy to his mantle by season's end.
By the way, if you're not convinced, Brees should have a nice time this week as the Saints march into St. Louis.
Winner Number Two: Adrian Peterson
What's Adrian getting on this snap?
Oh yeah, the opportunity to make the defense wish they hadn't canceled that gym membership this off-season.
And he does it very well.
Peterson rushed for nearly 100 yards last week at Lambeau, which got you twenty fantasy points, fantasy owners.
Still not convinced?
He hopes to crush a defense that at one point this season had a one game winning streak.
That's right, the Detroit Lions.
Winner Number Three: Matt Cassel
Matt Cassel and the Kansas City Chiefs travel to Oakland to take on the Raiders in Week 10.
Cassel had one of his biggest games of the season in Week Nine against the Jacksonville Jaguars, throwing for 262 yards and two touchdowns, with no interceptions.
He's already played against the Raiders this season, totaling 275 yards and one touchdown, with two interceptions in a Week Two loss.
Still not convinced?
Cassel heads into Week 10 facing the Raiders. The Raiders are terrible on both sides of the ball.
Loser Number One: Clinton Portis
At the age of 28, Portis appears trapped in the body of a player that is in full breakdown mode.
He has battled plantar fascilitis—an ankle problem—and a calf strain all on his right leg. In Week Nine, he was knocked out and appears like he'll miss at least Week 10 with a concussion (an injury that could easily keep him out much longer).
Portis has to be labeled as one of the biggest busts of 2009 as he has topped 100 yards only once and has found the end zone only twice.
Sit him. Or get rid of him. Either one will do.
Loser Number Two: Steve Slaton
Drafted by many as a top-10 fantasy selection, Slaton is now mired in a full-blown RBBC thanks to a case of fumble-itus.
In Week Nine against Indianapolis, Slaton received only nine touches for 29 yards and his longest carry of the day went for four yards.
And this is his bye-week. But don't start him anyway. Gary Kubiak has made Ryan Moats the starter. Not Slaton.
Loser Number Three: Colts D/ST
Just sit 'em this week.
They're facing Tom Brady and his mutant knee.
And Lawrence Maroney.
And Randy Moss.
And Wes Welker.
You get the point.
Have fun this week. Good Luck!
