Fantasy Football Report: Week 10

Some were impressed with Brady Quinn’s first career NFL start last Thursday against Denver. After all, he did throw for 238 yds and 2 TD. He made no mistakes and looked like he has been a pro for years. Yeah but, he was facing the Broncos. They allow 389 total yds per game which is good for 29th in the NFL. Until Quinn faces a real challenge, then lets hold off on giving him a medal.

Larry Johnson Set to Return to Action This Sunday

Kansas City Chiefs RB Larry Johnson, who missed three previous games due to being deactivated by the team, has served his one game suspension by the NFL and will start this Sunday’s game against the Saints.

Clinton Portis Questionable With Knee Injury

Clinton Portis, who injured his knee during a game against the Steelers, is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. Portis had the bye week last Sunday in order to rest his knee and it still seems to be bothering him.

Daunte Culpepper Returns to NFL, Fails to Impress

QB Daunte Culpepper signed with the Lions and started his first game all within one week. He put up pathetic numbers reminiscent of the recent Daunte Culepper and not the 2004 version. He threw for 104 yds and an INT. He is slated to start this Sunday against the Panthers.

Now, time to see who was great and who played like Daunte Culpepper (oh sick burn!).

Week 10 Top Performers

Adrian Peterson (RB), Minnesota Vikings: The future of the NFL running game recorded his 4th straight 100 yd game with 192 yds and a TD.

  • Week 11 Outlook: The Vikings face Tampa Bay in Week 11 and they can be beat on the ground. They give up just under 100 rush yds per game (99.3).

Tony Gonzalez (TE), Kansas City Chiefs: Gonzalez had his first 100 yd game of the season with 113 yds and 2 TD.

  • Week 11 Outlook: The Chiefs have a chance to score a lot with an improving Tyler Thigpen and poor Saints defense that gives up 348 total yds and over 25 points per game.

Jay Cutler (QB), Denver Broncos: Cutler made sure he spoiled Brady Quinn’s debut when he threw for a season high 447 yds and 3 TD with 1 INT.

  • Week 11 Outlook: Denver squares off against the Falcons who are vulnerable to the pass (228.4 yds allowed per contest).

Week 10 Duds

Tim Hightower (RB), Arizona Cardinals: After an impressive performance last week, Hightower could only muster 50 total yds with no scores in Week 10.

  • Week 11 Outlook: Hightower has a chance to rebound nicely against the Seahawks. Seattle surrenders 119 rush yds per game.

Aaron Rodgers (QB), Green Bay Packers: Rodgers failed to throw a TD in a game for the 2nd time this season when he threw for a season-low 142 yds and one INT.

  • Week 11 Outlook: The Packers face the Bears who are not the best against the pass as evident by the fact that they allow over 250 pass yds per week.

Chris Johnson (RB), Tennessee Titans: Johnson absolutely sucked against the Bears when he ran for only 8 yds on 14 carries.

  • Week 11 Outlook: Johnson will definitely improve upon his Week 10 performance when he faces a Jacksonville defense that gives up 113 rush yds per game.

Unexpected Stars

BenJarvus Green-Ellis (RB), New England Patriots: BenJavus had the best game of his very young career with 105 yds and a TD.

  • Week 11 Outlook: Don’t expect much out of the Patriots running game against the Jets. New York only allows 76.4 rush yds per game.

Tyler Thigpen (QB), Kansas City Chiefs: It is time to give him his credit. Thigpen threw for 266 yds and 3 TD against San Diego. He has thrown for 6 TD and no INT in his last three starts,

  • Week 11 Outlook: Thigpen can throw all over the Saints who give up 238 pass yds per game.

Bo Scaife (TE), Tennessee Titans: Scaife had a season high 10 catches for 78 yds and a TD.

  • Week 11 Outlook: Scaife will only see the ball that much again if Kerry Collins has to throw that much again. Plus, the Jaguars shut down opposing passers by allowing only 213 pass yds per game.

Sports of Boston Friends and Family League

  • I suffered a loss to our friend from The Blue Workhorse by a score of 118.98-98.56. As usual, Kurt Warner and Philip rivers came through but, I couldn’t beat his attack of Maurice Jones-Drew (27.10 points) and Jacksonville Defense (20 points). I now sit in 6th place.
  • SoB’s KC remains in first after destroying SoB Jeff’s QB-less team. KC easily cruised to a 126.78-45.70 victory to improve to 7-3.
  • The trade deadline is Nov. 14, so we will see who makes a last minute move to make a push to the playoffs.
  • SoB’s Dan set a new record by scoring 170.08 points. Good for you Dan, good for you.
  • Recent pickups include: Daunte Culpepper, Ray Rice, Ted Ginn Jr., Ryan Lindell, Jason Elam, Carolina Defense, Mewelede Moore, and Derrick Ward.

  1. I now officially hate Larry Johnson. Not only did he suck in all but one game to begin this year, but then he loses his ability not to hit and spit on women, thus forcing me to search for scrap heap RBs during bye weeks.

    And now he comes back, and he’ll probably have like 312 yards and 7 TDs or something ridiculous this week.

    So F*** you Larry!

  2. I broke the record with 170.08 but I forgot to set my lineups for Thursday and missed Kellen Winslow’s day (111 yards, 2 TDs).

    Winslow would have brought the total to 191.18.

    Not an acceptable mistake with the playoffs around the corner.

  3. Dan – I’m sure you’ll survive.

    And shotgun…thanks for Larry!
