Picking up Derek Carr and DeAngelo Williams last week really helped the cause, and helped me get closer to a postseason berth.
Here's a recap of Week 9's best performers and my Week 10 likes.
Week 9 Top Performers
QB – Marcus Mariota, Tennessee –Mariota took home AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors after throwing for 371 yards with four touchdowns.
RB – DeAngelo Williams, Pittsburgh –Williams totaled a career-high 225 scrimmage yards (170 rushing and 55 receiving) with two scores.
WR – Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh –I thought the Raiders would keep him in check, whoops! Brown set Steelers' single game records in receptions (17), receiving yards (284) and scrimmage yards (306).
TE – Delanie Walker, Tennessee –Walker* *had his best game of the season, recording 95 receiving yards on seven receptions with two scores.
Defense/Special Teams, New England –The Patriots forced two turnovers and held the Redskins to just 10 points.
K – Josh Brown, N.Y. Giants –Brown made all four field goals, including one from 40 and one from 50 , and both extra points for 17 fantasy points.
Week 10 Likes
Aaron Rodgers vs. Detroit –Two things: the Lions have one of the worst defenses in the league, and Rodgers has lost two straight games. He's going to be on a mission.
Blake Bortles at Baltimore –The Ravens are second-to-last in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Bortles has thrown for at least 300 yards in three of his last four games.
Kirk Cousins at New Orleans –This might be a little bit of a stretch, but the Saints have allowed 13 passing touchdowns in their last three games.
DeAngelo Williams vs. Cleveland –Williams has done nothing but produce when he's been the featured back. Facing a team that ranks 29th in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs can't hurt.
Mark Ingram vs. Washington –Washington has allowed at least 155 rushing yards in each of its last four games. Ingram has averaged 16 fantasy points per game in his last three.
Adrian Peterson at Oakland –The Raiders were gashed for nearly 200 rushing yards last Sunday. AP has two straight 100-yard games.
Demaryius Thomas vs. Kansas City –The Chiefs are dead last, giving up 35.1 fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Thomas had 116 receiving yards earlier this year against the Chiefs.
Antonio Brown vs. Cleveland –What will he do this week that could even come close to his last game? Well, Cleveland does give up on average 27.6 fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers.
Alshon Jefferey at St. Louis –Jefferey has three straight 100-yard games. The Rams are a good group when it comes to defending opposing wide receivers but Jefferey is the hot hand.
Gary Barnidge at Pittsburgh –The Steelers have done a better job defending opposing tight ends but Bardnidge is by far Cleveland's best weapon.
Greg Olsen at Tennessee –Olsen has totaled at least 65 receiving yards in four straight games and has three scores over that span.
Rob Gronkowski at N.Y. Giants –The Giants rank 30th in the league, giving up 12 fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. Someone cue the Gronk spike.
Pittsburgh vs. Cleveland –The Steelers' defense has been up and down this season, but they have also faced some very tough offenses. Cleveland isn't one of them.
Green Bay vs. Detroit –Detroit's offensive line has allowed 13 sacks in its last two games. Green Bay will have plenty of chances to force turnovers.
New England at N.Y. Giants –The Patriots' defense/special teams groups have totaled 30 fantasy points in the last two games.
Stephen Gostkowski at N.Y. Giants –He's only totaled less than nine fantasy points once this season.
Caleb Sturgis vs. Miami –Sturgis has 47 fantasy points in his last four games.
Brandon McManus vs. Kansas City –McManus has totaled double-digit fantasy points in four of his last five games.
