Fantasy Football Week 10 Start 'Em & Sit 'Em: Vintage Tom Brady & Chris Godwin & More From Every Position

Fantasy Football Week 10 Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em: Tom Brady and Buccaneers break out, and more

The Cowboys are hoping to play Ezekiel Elliott (knee) in Week 10 at Green Bay, but it looks like he’s going to be cautious. Elliott said Wednesday after taking part in limited practice that he was not going to rush to return after sitting out Week 8, and Dallas was off in Week 9.

“I just need to get more rep, just to see where I am,” Elliott said via ESPN’s Todd Archer. “I would say there is urgency, but I think what’s important is making sure my knee is good and ready to go. That’s the priority. The priority is the long term. I plan to play deep in the playoffs, so the long game is definitely the priority.”

If Elliott can’t play against the Packers, Tony Pollard would have to face a big workload again, and that would be great for his fantasy vision. With Elliott against the Bears in Week 8, Pollard had 14 carries for 131 yards and three touchdowns, as well as a catch for 16 yards.

Pollard has now scored at least 12 PPR points in three of his last four games, so he’s worth using as a number one. 2 running backs even though Elliott is playing. But if Elliott is out, Pollard could be one of Fantasy’s top 10 running backs in all leagues.

The Packers have allowed eight running backs to score at least 12 PPR points this season, and Green Bay is now a key member of their defense after Rashan Gary (ACL) was injured in Week 9 at Detroit. Keep watching what happens with Elliott through Sunday, and if he’s out, Pollard should be a star.

Tom Brady has been a bad Fantasy quarterback this year. He has one game with multiple touchdowns and two games with 19+ fantasy points. For the season, he averaged just 17.1 fantasy points per game.

But it will be a decisive game for him against the Seahawks in Germany. For starters, Brady loves playing in international matches. He’s undefeated in three international games in his career, and he’s had 952 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions in those outings. He scored at least 26 fantasy points in each of those games (two in London and one in Mexico City) and needs just 258 more yards to break Blake Bortles’ record for most career passing yards in outside the United States.

The Seahawks have allowed two of their last three opposing quarterbacks to score at least 22 fantasy points, and four quarterbacks have topped 20 fantasy points against Seattle this year. Brady will add to that total in this game.

With Tampa Bay’s running game a failure, Brady will attempt at least 40 passes again, something he’s done for seven straight games. He will also exceed 300 passing yards, which has happened three times in his last seven outings. But this time, he’ll get multiple touchdowns and deliver a potential top-five performance this week.

Brady is expected for a big game. Playing overseas might be what he needs to get his season back on track, and Fantasy managers will appreciate the Week 10 results.

Cowboys (in UK)

The Cowboys defense gave up the most points they allowed all season last we saw them against the Bears in Week 8 with 29. Still, the Cowboys DST had four sacks, one fumble recovery and a touchdown in that game. Dallas’ defense has at least four sacks in six of the last seven games and at least one turnover in six of eight games. Additionally, the Packers enter this game as the 27th-best offense in the league. NFL at 17 points per game. Green Bay are also stoned for this game, with Romeo Doubs (ankle) out and Aaron Jones (ankle) potentially limited. Aaron Rodgers also threw four interceptions in his last two games against Buffalo and Detroit.

  • Titans (vs. DEN)
  • Steelers (vs NO)
  • Giants (against HOU)

Buccaneers (vs. SEA)

The Seahawks’ offense, thanks in large part to the emergence of Kenneth Walker III and Geno Smith, is the fourth-highest offense in the NFL, averaging about 27 points per game. They’ve scored at least 27 points in four of their last five games. Tampa Bay has not recorded a turnover in five straight games, and the Buccaneers have been three sacks or less in three of the last four games. I’m not sure the Buccaneers DST qualifies as a go-to fantasy option for this week.
