Week 10 Fantasy Football Awards 2019


Team of the Week

 

QB: Lamar Jackson

Surely you have seen the highlights by now, but Jackson again had a phenomenal performance in Week 10, going 15-of-17 for 223 yards and three touchdowns with an additional seven carries for 65 yards and the twirling, 47-yard score that John Harbaugh believes will be watched for “decades and decades.” Jackson has now scored 30+ fantasy points four times already this season, and he likely won’t slow down for a potential shootout against Houston next week.

 

RB: Derrick Henry

Sunday was somehow just the second game with 25+ touches for Henry this season, but Tennessee made up for his lack of early involvement in Week 9 by feeding him in their win over Kansas City. As a runner, the monster back rushed 23 times for 188 yards and two touchdowns, including a 68-yard bulldozing sprint that opened things up in the third quarter. Every game Henry isn’t featured is a mistake.

 

RB: Dalvin Cook

Cook held up his end of a Sunday Night Football matchup against Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys, as he turned a career-high 33 touches into 183 yards and a touchdown. Basically, Minnesota put on a clinic when it comes to crafting an offense around one of the best running backs in football, and Cook rewarded them and fantasy owners with a huge night.

 

WR: Christian Kirk

Kirk was too good not to bounce back from eight scoreless yards in Week 9, and he exploded by catching six-of-ten targets for 138 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday. Hopefully you are a Fantasy Consigliere member that saw the second-year receiver was ranked as a low-end WR1 and a recommended DFS play for us this week.

 

WR: Amari Cooper

It didn’t lead to a win for the Cowboys, but Cooper was excellent last night, putting up an 11/147/1 line while making multiple highlight grabs on the boundary. The chemistry between the former first-round pick and quarterback Dak Prescott is as good as ever, and they will have a great shot to keep it going next week against a Detroit defense that’s been shredded in recent games.

 

TE: Mark Andrews

Andrews had seen his role decrease in back-to-back weeks, but he re-emerged on Sunday by catching six passes for 53 yards and two scores against Cincinnati—which were his first trips to the end zone since September. The Oklahoma product has now gone for lines of 6/99 and 6/53/2 in matchups versus the Bengals in 2019.

 

FLEX: Tyreek Hill

Hill saw a league-high (for the season) 19 targets in Patrick Mahomes’ return to the lineup, and their connection didn’t miss a beat (11 receptions for 157 yards and one touchdown). It felt like the Chiefs could have targeted Hill on every play if they wanted to, so while the volume will certainly decrease next week and beyond, the All-Pro receiver is a high-end, high-upside WR1.

 

D/ST: Ravens

The rival Steelers deserve consideration here for the second week in a row, but Baltimore scored twice in their 49-13 victory, and despite just two sacks, their 24.0 fantasy points tops all D/ST options heading into Monday night. The loaded secondary should continue to allow Baltimore to pay dividends in the right matchups.

 

K: Younghoe Koo

Harrison Butker would have made the Team of the Week again if he didn’t have the would-be game-tying field goal blocked by Tennessee, so instead, Koo gets the nod after a Falcons debut that saw him hit four-of-four field goals and both PAT attempts.

 

Surprise of the Week: Cooper Kupp

Kupp was an obvious candidate for “Disappointment of the Week,” but the selection there was a bigger letdown for fantasy owners, and LA’s slot receiver has been productive enough this season that those with him rostered hopefully didn’t need a productive day to keep their season alive. Still, having zero receptions for the second time in his career (with the first being due to injury) was a definite shock, and sub-par performances in the future won’t be as surprising because of a) the state of the offensive line for the Rams, and b) the team’s upcoming schedule.

 

Disappointment of the Week: David Johnson 

Even if the expectations were lowered for Johnson (because of a tough matchup, concerns about workload, and potentially not being himself coming off an ankle injury), it was demoralizing to see him score negative fantasy points in Week 10. Arizona didn’t have a problem putting up points, but DJ had just one target, and over his past two games, he’s combined to rush six times for four yards.

 

Rookie of the Week: Darius Slayton

Teammate Daniel Jones (four touchdowns) could have been the choice here, but Slayton went off against the Jets, turning a whopping 14 targets into ten receptions for 121 yards and two scores. The matchup will get a lot tougher next week against the Bears, but if Sterling Shepard (concussion) remains out for an extended period of time, Slayton will be worth rostering for the fantasy playoffs when he takes on the Eagles (twice if you play in Week 17), Dolphins, and Redskins.

 

Week 10 MVP: Christian Kirk

Kirk’s 34.8 fantasy points currently puts him atop the Week 10 leaderboard, and those who rolled with him despite recent struggles are likely thrilled with the results. Before scoring touchdowns from 33 and 69 yards away (not to mention a 15-yarder to close things out), Kirk hadn’t caught a pass of 20+ yards since Week 2.
