As if the NFL was not crazy enough. The Raiders could be the best team in the NFL, so could the Dallas Cowboys, what a crazy world we live in. NFL Salute to Service is in full effect, so I would like to personally thank all the men and women who have served this country. You are greatly appreciated.
Week 10 let’s go.
If you’ve never watched a football game in your whole life, I could tell you that Dak Prescott is a 10-year veteran and you probably would hesitate to believe me. It’s unbelievable what he is doing for the Cowboys.
Marcus Mariota scored four touchdowns including a rushing touchdown. If he can stop throwing interceptions, he could be a top 10 fantasy quarterback.
Drew Brees handled business in San Fran just like we all thought he would, throwing for 323 yards and three touchdowns. Matt Ryan one-upped him with 344 yards and four touchdowns.
“Cam Newton is back” is what everyone said last week. They won, but only scored 13 points on the Rams. Andrew Luck’s team scored 31 against Green Bay, but Luck looked rather lackluster.
Need a QB? Carson Palmer, Eli Manning and Jay Cutler are good options.
I apologize for telling you all to pick up Tim Hightower this week, because Mark Ingram ran like a run-away train with 158 yards and two touchdowns, which works out to be a pretty nice game.
Melvin Gordon has said he wears number 28 because Adrian Peterson was one of his biggest influences. He was running just like the old vet on Sunday, rushing for 196 yards and a touchdown. He is rapidly becoming one of the best running backs in the game.
Latavius Murray scored three touchdowns in Oakland’s 30 to 20 over the defending Super bowl champs. Ezekiel Elliot hasn’t scored under 18 points (PPR League) since Week Two.
If in need of a running back: Paul Perkins, Chris Ivory and Payton Barber are good options.
Mike Evans was a one-man wrecking crew against Atlanta Thursday night. He had 150 yards and two touchdowns. Evans had a spectacular one-handed catch along the sideline while getting hit. Also, Julio Jones had a very nice catch in the back of the end zone. If you haven’t seen either, use the good old Internet to watch them.
Mike Wallace had a 95 yards touchdown against the Steelers (that’s 17 points on one play). Allen Robinson is looking good again with 76 yards and a touchdown. Michael Thomas scored two touchdowns against 49ers.
Jarvis Landry, Dez Bryant and Michael Crabtree were all busts this week.
If you need a wide receiver: Steve Smith Sr., John Brown and Adam Humphries are solid plays this week.
Do you remember Jimmy Graham when he was on the Saints? He was looking pretty close to that Jimmy Graham we all loved, he had 103 yards and two touchdowns.
Greg Olsen finally was worth playing on Sunday, with just his third touchdown of the season.
Antonio Gates and Delanie Walker were looking young again; both of these guys must be drinking out of the fountain of youth.
Travis Kelce got ejected from his game against the Jaguars, because he threw his towel like a flag at the Ref.
“I can’t throw my flag on the ref but he can throw his all day long,” Kelce said after the game.
I find this to be hilarious, throwing a flag on the ref. I’m sure all the players can relate with him on that one.
If you need a tight end for this week: Jason Witten, C.J. Fiedorowicz and Zach Ertz are good pick-ups.
And Rob Gronkowski is still good at football, even during a bye.
