B-Team - Week 10


https://www.sportsnet.ca/football/nfl/broncos-bringing-back-tim-patrick-putting-bryce-callahan-ir/

Another week, another victory. I say this like I’m topping the 100 point goal regularly. However, this is my third time besting the mark in nine weeks. I guess one-third of the attempts are not all that bad. I’d like to get some more victories and bring that number closer to the .500 mark by the season’s end. Without further ado, let's get into our Week 10 team.


This is a series where I construct a hypothetical fantasy football lineup using players that are owned in less than 40-percent of Yahoo and/or ESPN leagues. The goal of the series is to top 100 PPR fantasy points using the make-shift team. The premise is to show that there is readily available value at all times across most waiver wires. You can find last week’s results below and the result of previous weeks at the bottom of this article.


We finally hit on our quarterback. Typically, when our quarterback has a good game, we have a good chance of getting to that 100 point goal. Drew Lock threw for 48 times in a loss to the Falcons. He used 300-plus yards, two passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown to get 30-plus fantasy points. Jakobi Meyers also was crucial in our Week 10 outing. Meyers caught 12-of-14 targets for 169 yards on Monday Night Football. J.D. McKissic topped 17 fantasy points for us, as he also had 14 targets, catching nine of them. Beyond that, multiple performances just shy of ten points helped us chip away.


Week 9 Results

Drew Lock (Denver Broncos) - 30.22 points

Gus Edwards (Baltimore Ravens) - 9.4 points

J.D. McKissic (Washington Football Team) - 17.2 points

Darnell Mooney (Chicago Bears) - 9.3 points

Randall Cobb (Houston Texans) - 5.1 points

Tyler Eifert (Jacksonville Jaguars ) - 8.8 points

Jakobi Meyers (New England Patriots) - 28.9 points

Houston Texans - 4 points

Total: 112.92 points


Week 10 Lineup

Quarterback

Drew Lock (Denver Broncos) - Owned in 23% of Yahoo and 18.3% of ESPN leagues

I’m going back to the well. Lock was crucial in our success in Week 9 and I’m hoping he can be that key again in Week 10. There are some decent matchups for other qualifying quarterbacks, including Lock. After putting up 30-plus fantasy points against the Falcons, Lock gets the Las Vegas Raiders, who have allowed the eighth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Lock has thrown 40-plus times in three straight games. As the Broncos’ rushing attack continues to struggle and the Raiders’ offense showing success this season, I can see Lock tossing the ball 40-plus times again.


Runningbacks

https://www.faketeams.com/2020/11/13/21564371/kalen-ballage-called-up-off-practice-squad-for-week-10-vs-miami-dolphins

Kalen Ballage (Miami Dolphins) - Owned in 11% of Yahoo and 8.6% of ESPN leagues

Finding value at runningback at this point of the season for this series is nearly impossible. This is a risk I’m going to have to take. Anthony Lynn already stated that it’ll be the “flow of the game” that will determine who leads the backfield in touches against the Dolphins. Being a former Dolphin himself for the first two seasons of his career, I think Ballage plays with a chip on his shoulder against his former team. Ballage ran the ball 15 times a week ago where he went for 69 yards and a score. He also saw three targets. If he can get anywhere near that mark again this week, he’ll have another good showing, as Miami have allowed the 12th most fantasy points to opposing runningbacks.


Rex Burkhead (New England Patriots) - Owned in 22% of Yahoo and 23.3% of ESPN leagues

Like I previously said, runningback options are limited this week. With that being said, we’ll take Rex Burkhead with the likeliness that Damien Harris (ankle/chest) misses the Patriots’ Sunday night game with the Baltimore Ravens. Burkhead did well in the between-the-tackles role last week on his 12 carries. The Ravens don’t offer a great matchup for runningbacks but I need to put someone in this position.


Wide Receivers

Jakobi Meyers (New England Patriots) - Owned in 42% of Yahoo and 18.9% of ESPN leagues

As Julian Edeleman remains out and N’Keal Harry still not medically cleared to return to the field, I have to once again go with Week 9 hero Jakobi Meyers. Even if Harry is to play and trade deadline acquisition Isaiah Ford sees the field, I don’t see a world where Meyers is not heavily involved in the Patriots’ offense. He’s seen back-to-back weeks of double-digit targets. Cam and him have developed quite the connection over the last few weeks.


Tim Patrick (Denver Broncos) - Owned in 22% of Yahoo and 14.9% of ESPN leagues

I don’t see where Tim Patrick doesn’t play this week as he played through the same injury in Week 9. As I continue to put trust in Drew Lock, I have to put some trust in his receivers. Although Jerry Jeudy is the top dog in Denver, Patrick has also been doing well for himself. He’s seen at least five targets in all but two games thus far this season and has seen eight and nine in two of his last three outings. With Drew Lock throwing the ball over 40 times a game, we know Patrick will get his fair share of looks. He’s also playing the Raiders, who have allowed the 16th most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.


Tight End

Jordan Reed (San Francisco 49ers) - Owned in 17% of Yahoo and 16.3% of ESPN leagues

The 49ers are playing the Saints this week and will almost certainly be playing from behind the majority of the game. This will force Nick Mullens to throw the football. As the Saints have allowed the seventh most fantasy points to opposing tight ends, we can expect Reed will see his fair share of targets. We know the importance of the tight end in this 49ers’ offense and to its success.


Flex

https://sports.yahoo.com/nelson-agholor-gaining-derek-carr-172213888.html

Nelson Agholor (Las Vegas Raiders) - Owned in 26% of Yahoo and 14.3% of ESPN leagues

I think this Raiders-Broncos game can be sneakily high scoring. According to Vegas, this is predicted to be the third highest scoring game of the week. As I’m going heavy on the Broncos’ side, I have to invest in the Las Vegas side too. Agholor has been a low-key quality play thus far this season. He’s caught four touchdowns of the past five weeks. Agholor finding the endzone this week is not a farfetched belief at all.


Defense

Detroit Lions - Owned in 9% of Yahoo and 6.7% of ESPN leagues

I’ve been hurt by the Lions’ defense on multiple occasions thus far this season so I’m not sure why I’m doing this. I’ll just try to justify my decision here. Alex Smith will be the starting quarterback for the Washington Football Team. He’s limited in his abilities due to the horrific leg injury he overcame. He threw three interceptions a week ago coming in for Kyle Allen. I don’t see Washington putting up a bunch of points and the Lions to get a takeaway or two.
