A lot has happened this past week, so we have to figure out how certain things affect certain players on your fantasy team. There were some crazy and mind-blowing events in Week 10 so let’s see what we can take away from it.
James Conner Goes Nuclear
James Conner is an intriguing name for the rest of the season after his Week 10 performance and the subsequent cut of Eno Benjamin. After the Arizona Cardinals laid the hammer on his usage, giving him 21 touches, he pounced for four touchdowns. We are finally beginning to see the scoring dominance we saw from him last season.
The hope is that he continues this moving forward, but that fate relies on the Cardinals to continue getting inside the red zone and on the goal line like last season. With DeAndre Hopkins and Kyler Murray controlling the game, I think Conner has a really good shot to continue this touchdown rampage and win fantasy managers their league. If he keeps being used as a workhorse, he can be a top 10-15 running back the rest of the year.
Josh Allen Is Not Him
Josh Allen’s latest performance against the Minnesota Vikings was especially tough to watch after the news worrying fantasy managers all week with the potential of suffering a season-ending injury. Fresh off the news that he was playing on Sunday, it let Allen owners alleviate their minds only to watch a lackluster performance against the Vikings.
Allen has been on an abysmal skid not just for his standard but for any quarterback’s standards. He’s been generating turnovers as if he turned into an early career Daniel Jones, with two interceptions in each of his last three games. As well as a fumble lost on Sunday and two fumbles the week before that were recovered by the Bills. It also isn’t like Allen is productive and scoring enough fantasy points to counteract the turnovers. He hasn’t completed a high percentage of his passes, which in the past three weeks would be worst in the league among active NFL quarterbacks, and taking out huge plays, his stats would be much worse. Allen does not look like himself, but if you own him, you just have to keep starting him unless the issue continues.
Rachaad White The Running Back One In Tampa Bay?
I hope you guys bought low on Rachaad White like I told you too because this guy is for real. After carrying the ball 22 times for over 100 yards, White finally looks like the league winner I hoped he would be. I think this continues for the rest of the season. Leonard Fournette was more efficient on Sunday than in previous weeks, but he was yet again outperformed by White.
Before the game against the Seattle Seahawks, White never got the opportunity to use his talent to the best of his ability. Before this past week, the most carries he had in a game was eight. In a game where he carried it 22 times, this was where he was really able to take off. Watch out for Rachaad White the rest of the season because he is going to boom.
