NFL Week 10 overreactions: ‘The Hail Murray’ proves this season truly is unpredictable
SportsPulse: Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins hooked up for the play of the year and a moment we won’t soon forget. Mackenzie Salmon reacts to ‘The Hail Murray’ and all the biggest storylines from Week 10 in the NFL.
These players saw their fantasy values increase or decrease most based on their performances in Week 10:
QB Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Coming off a dismal game against New Orleans (three interceptions, no touchdowns), Brady heard the naysayers loud and clear. Rebounding against the Carolina Panthers, he threw for 341 yards with three TDs with no interceptions. Plus, he also added a rushing score.
WR Cole Beasley, Buffalo Bills: Beasley had his third 100-yard game of the season against Arizona, catching 11 of 13 targets for 109 yards and a touchdown. Beasley has carved out a significant role as QB Josh Allen’s go-to possession receiver.
RB D’Andre Swift, Detroit Lions: The rookie has had his growing pains, but things are starting to click for him. Against Washington, Swift was a one-man wrecking crew both on the ground and as a receiver.
RB Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas Raiders: Jacobs has faced a string of good run defenses lately, but he shredded the Denver Broncos for 112 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The tide turns with a nice string of matchups the next four weeks, so ride Jacobs while he’s hot.
RB Nyheim Hines, Indianapolis Colts: After scoring twice and leading the team in rushing, Hines is now on the precipice of overtaking Jonathan Taylor and Jordan Wilkins for the starting job.
RB Phillip Lindsay, Denver Broncos: Lindsay barely saw the field on Sunday. In a timeshare with Melvin Gordon and Royce Freeman, Lindsay has been the odd-man out after respectably producing in Weeks 6-8 while Gordon was sidelined.
RB James White, New England Patriots: White has essentially disappeared as Damien Harris has taken over the bulk of the rushing load. He caught both of his targets against Baltimore, but has just four carries in his last four games.
WR Travis Fulgham, Philadelphia Eagles: Fulgham exploded onto the scene with four touchdown catches in his first five games. But in Week 10, he had one reception for 8 yards and was never targeted in the red zone.
TE Jared Cook, New Orleans Saints: With Michael Thomas back and Drew Brees possibly out for several weeks, Cook’s fantasy future looks grim — especially after he went without a catch on Sunday.
TE Evan Engram, New York Giants: Entering Week 10, Engram was targeted an astonishing 29 times in his three previous games. Against the Eagles, he had only three passes come his way and managed just 15 receiving yards.
