Take It To The Bank: NFL Week 10
By Brett Malamud
A short week this week, as I am molding our next MLB hot stove preview. Let’s take a look at Week 10:
The Legs on Langford
Last week, we were treated to a running display by Bears running back Jeremy Langford after an injury in week eight to Matt Forte. Langford finished the game with 72 yards rushing and a touchdown, plus 70 yards receiving. Langford demonstrated that he can be deadly on the ground and in the air. This week, he’ll take on a St. Louis Rams team that has been pretty good against the run, but will be the lead man, as Matt Forte is inactive. Temper your expectations but he’s a RB2 for me, and will get a good workload, even when Forte returns.
What Can Brown Do For You?
Antonio Brown had the biggest performance you could have hoped for, making 17 catches for 284 yards, and two rushes for 22 yards. But doubt sets in as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was injured and will sit in week 10, setting up Landry Jones to start. Antonio Brown is still a top 10 wide receiver as he’s matches up with the Cleveland Browns.
Tyler On Top
The Cincinnati Bengals are rolling right now. If you have A.J. Green, you’re going to start him. Same with Andy Dalton. But the player that I want to feature is tight end Tyler Eifert. The thing about Eifert is that he only had five targets, and got four of them in the red zone. He only had 53 receiving yards. So while he produced over 20 fantasy points last week, he’s only going to get those high numbers if the Bengals can get in the red zone. The tight end pool is thin and so Eifert is still a good option, but don’t expect him to be great every week.
