Week 10 Recap
In order to quell Geoff’s anxiety about the Chargers on SNF, he joined me and Cust on the recap show. NOTE: I’m somewhat saltier than usually after getting taken to the cleaners in Week 10. Still we chat BUF/MIN, Jeff Saturday, Tua, GB/DAL, and how Paul wants the Bills to fire their coach. Plus, we go head-to-head-to-head trying to pick the Week 11 NFL lines.
Oh, and we learn that Cust stores tweets well in advance so they’re ready when everything he wants to happen, happens…
We’ve partnered with JOCK MKT for football season, and so far BIG JOHN Laghezza has been plucking the values from the high and low end. If you haven’t played JOCK MKT yet, it’s essentially a stock market for players, so you buy them a one price for the week and see if they turn a profit.
Sign up, OKKKKK??????

Week 10 RB Snap Shares
Week 10 Game NOTES
Bucs: Bye coming in Week 11, but Rachaad White and the Bucs draw a below average defense in terms of RB rush TD-rate in each of their final three games this regular season. Won’t help you next week … still very much worth an add.
Seahawks: The Seahawks are straight forward … but Noah Fant did cash his (over) receiving prop in Germany and I don’t think that’s a mistake.
Vikings: TJ Hockenson is the second most valuable pass catcher in this offense and it’s not close. Not sure he can threaten the elite tier at the position, but he’s certainly knocking on the door given his usage in Minney thus far.
Bills: Devin Singletary had some serious juice in the early going and if the Bills want to protect Josh Allen down the stretch, we could be looking at a real fantasy difference-maker. Buffalo gets the Lions and Thanksgiving before three straight divisional games to close most fantasy seasons.
Lions: D’Andre Swift scores and that’s great, but this team doesn’t want to use him much and that’s going to result in more down weeks than usable ones.
Bears: Only three times in NFL history has a player had multiple pass TD, a rush TD and 60 rush yards three times in a single season. Justin Fields has done it in three straight games.
Broncos: Zero interest in this offense. I thought we might get some positive signs off the bye. That wasn’t it.
Titans: Nick Westbrook-Ikhine was fun and won people a bunch of money, but I’m not chasing … he didn’t have a game with 5 targets this season prior and this offense doesn’t want to (a) throw the ball or (b) give any one pass catcher volume. Pass.
Jags: Hopefully you bought low when you had the chance on Christian Kirk … he’s back to the focus of this offense and Trevor Lawrence looks the part of a developing top pick.
Chiefs: They say the beginning of games is heavily scripted … 11 Chiefs had a touch in the first half and CEH was not one of them.
Browns: The volume had been moving his way, Deshaun Watson’s is coming and they play some seriously winnable games when it matters most. Donovan Peoples-Jones is a thing.
Dolphins: Both Dolphin backs got there in this one, but that just means another week of not knowing really what to do there. On a high-flying offense like this, sustaining two backs is just not realistic … but neither is picking the one that will be most productive.
Texans: Brandin Cooks need not be rostered. Reposting from last week. Oh, and Dameon Pierce is amazing … but this team is brutal.
Giants: Darius Slayton should be rostered more, but banking on anything consistently from the New York Barkley’s outside of Saquon is beyond a fools errand.
Saints: Write this one off for Alvin Kamara … better times ahead, but an offense with limited upside is always going to carry this sort of risk.
Steelers: The demise of Najee Harris may have been a touch over exaggerated, but Jaylen Warren is still getting work and is their pass game back. He should be on rosters … simply carries more upside than the other scrubs on your wire.
Cowboys: Dalton Schultz is among the TEs I’d consider a lineup staple (as long as Dak is active) … just too much volume to avoid. Tony Pollard is obviously great … time to sell him? ‘Zeke is going to play, likely sooner than later, and like it or not, this role won’t be available when that happens.
Packers: Christian Watson had the long TD and a handful of targets. He’s far from a must roster, but if you’re grasping for straws (lotta viable receivers on bye next week: MIA, SEA, TB and JAX), I get looking to add him.
Colts: Safe to say that Jeff Saturday has no issue in counting on his elite back … not a bad coaching philosophy and seemingly one we can count on moving forward. He’s not RB1 the rest of the way, but he’s safely in the top two tiers and a weekly difference maker.
Raiders: Foster Moreau is a weekly starter. That may feel gross, but he’s proven viable when given the looks and those looks are here to stay on this team.
Cardinals: James Conner is anything but inspiring these days, but if he’s going to handle an elite role, he is a lineup lock.
Rams: Cooper Kupp got hurt in the 4th quarter, but he was getting locked up prior. I’m not saying the Cardinals have the secret sauce, but that’s twice this year and it’ll be interesting to see if other teams try to mirror what it is they are doing
