Happy Wednesday, all! Now that week 10 is done, allow me to break down everything you need to know to help get you the W next week.
Here are the two players that helped their teams this week:
RB, Jeremy Langford, Chicago Bears: 20 Rushes, 73 Yards, 1 TD, 7 Receptions, 109 Yards, 1 TD; ESPN Score: 29
With many injuries going on with RBs this year, it’s tough to stick with one solid back. Langford, a rookie backup behind Matt Forte, really picked up the workload with a strong game. It’s best to pick up backs like this with such uncertainty in this position.
RB Charcandrick West, Kansas City Chiefs: 24 Rushes, 69 Yards, 1 TD, 3 Receptions, 92 Yards, 1 TD; ESPN Score: 27
Jamaal Charles season-ending injury hurt fantasy owners this season. However, West, another strong backup back, showed a strong outing with his win against a tough Denver defense, improving KC’s season to 4-5 and beating a strong Denver team.
Here are two players that underperformed in week 10:
RB Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks: 8 Rushes, 42 Yards, 1 TD; ESPN Score: 10
Soft spoken and former Super Bowl champion Lynch is having a tough time getting anything going this year. Monday night’s game against the Cardinals showed what little difference he makes in the offense this season. Lynch is still a top notch back in the league and for fantasy owners, but the Seahawks’ offensive coordinator needs to find a way to use him better for them to win.
WR Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers: 5 Receptions, 53 Yards, 0 TDs; ESPN Score: 5
Cobb was looking to really make an impact after injuring his shoulder a few weeks back. He and Rodgers had a tough time during their game against the Lions this past week, rarely connecting when the opportunity showed itself. They hope to bounce back with Cobb looking to be 100 percent going in to Minnesota this weekend.
Here is someone to look out for in Week 11:
WR Amari Cooper, Oakland Raiders
As a rookie, Cooper has been a solid receiver and a big target for QB Derek Carr and the Raiders’ offense. Cooper has been an impact at the FLEX position for many fantasy owners. Look for Cooper to have a big game against the Lions.
Here is someone you should sit for this week:
QB Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins
Fantasy owners are confused and frustrated with Kirk Cousins because he’s so inconsistent this season. Cousins had a strong week against the Saints and fantasy owners want him to start in the upcoming game. However, Cousins isn’t at the elite level yet and needs to be more consistent. If you have Cousins on your squad, I’d look to your benched QB this weekend. The Redskins will be playing the tough and undefeated Panthers defense.
Good luck to everyone and start thinking about fantasy playoffs!
