Fans of the NFL might not agree on much, but we should all agree that football is an unpredictable game.

By Week 10, we can usually separate the contenders from the also-rans. However, that doesn't mean that the best teams are going to play the best football every time they take the field. The New Orleans Saints, for example, were rolling—with and without Drew Brees—coming into Sunday. They got dominated by the Atlanta Falcons at home.

New Orleans wasn't the only potential playoff team to get knocked off on Sunday either. The Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions also fell. And if you pegged guys like Brian Hill and Jeff Driskel as fantasy standouts for Week 10, give yourself a high-five. There probably isn't anyone around who had the same predictions.

Both the playoff race and the fantasy football landscape have been shaken up by a wild slate of games. We'll dig into both here, along with the full results of Week 10.

Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens

While much of Sunday's action was surprising, Lamar Jackson's performance was not. The Baltimore Ravens quarterback has lit up many defenses this season, and he did the same to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Jackson did damage through the air and on the ground this week, totaling 288 yards and four touchdowns.

A star in all fantasy formats, Jackson is proving to be a true franchise signal-caller for the Ravens.

    

Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs didn't win Sunday, but they did see the return of starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes (knee). In the grand scheme of things, that may be the more important development.

If Kansas City hopes to make the playoffs, they're going to have to rely on Mahomes, who was stellar Sunday. He passed for 446 yards and three touchdowns, which is great for fantasy managers who have been waiting for his return.

The Chiefs defense was a disappointment, however, surrendering 35 points and over 200 rushing yards to the Tennessee Titans. That defense could be a liability for Kansas City as it pushes for a playoff spot. It should also ensure that fantasy managers get big weekly production from Mahomes as he tries to keep pace on the scoreboard.

    

Jarvis Landry, WR, Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns have struggled to find an offensive identity for much of the 2019 season. On Sunday, they found some focus and got a win by feeding the ball to one of the most reliable receivers in the game.

Baker Mayfield connected with wideout Jarvis Landry nine times for 97 yards and a touchdown. The former LSU standout was Cleveland's safety valve against a Buffalo Bills defense that had ranked third against the pass (184.6 yards per game allowed).

"We have a lot of respect for him," Bills safety Micah Hyde said before the game, according to The Athletic's Matthew Fairburn.

Buffalo knew it would have a challenge in Landry, but the Bills couldn't contain him. Getting him the ball should be a focus for Cleveland moving forward.

    

Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts weren't able to get a win with Jacoby Brissett out of the lineup. Brian Hoyer got the start for the Colts, and his three interceptions helped the Miami Dolphins get their second win of the season.

While Hoyer's mistakes were a letdown for Indianapolis, tight end Jack Doyle didn't let down fantasy manager. A prime waiver-wire target for Week 10, Doyle caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown.

With both T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell dealing with injuries, Doyle should remain a prominent piece of the Colts offense next week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Brissett, who wasn't ruled out until Saturday, may be back in the lineup as well.
