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

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

The Cowboys hope Ezekiel Elliott (knee) will play in Week 10 at Green Bay, but it sounds like he’ll be cautious. Elliott said Wednesday after entering limited practice that he would be in no rush to return after sitting out Week 8 and Dallas’ Week 9 bye.

“I just need to get some more reps, just to see where I’m at,” Elliott said, via ESPN’s Todd Archer. “I would say there’s an urgency, but I think the important thing is just making sure my knee is good and ready to go. That’s a priority. It’s a long-term priority. I plan to play deep into the playoffs, so a long game is definitely a priority.”

If Elliott can’t play against the Packers, then Tony Pollard would be looking at a big deal again, and that would be great for his Fantasy outlook. With Elliott against the Bears in Week 8, Pollard had 14 catches for 131 yards and three touchdowns, along with one catch for 16 yards.

Pollard has now scored at least 12 PPR points in three of the last four games, so he’s worth using as the No. 2 back even if Elliott plays. But if Elliott doesn’t, then Pollard could be a top 10 Fantasy running back in all leagues.

The Packers have allowed eight runs to score at least 12 PPR points this season, and Green Bay is now down a key member of the defense after Rashan Gary (ACL) was injured in Week 9 at Detroit. Keep watching what happens with Elliott until Sunday, and if he goes, then Pollard should be the star.

Tom Brady has been a bad Fantasy quarterback this year. He has one game with multiple touchdowns and two games with more than 19 Fantasy points. For the season, he’s averaging just 17.1 Fantasy points per game.

But this will be his breakout game against the Seahawks in Germany. For starters, Brady loves playing international games. He is undefeated in three international games in his career, and has passed for 952 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions in those outings. He’s 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 outside the United States.

The Seahawks have allowed two of their past 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 matchup.

With Tampa Bay’s run game failing, Brady will attempt at least 40 passes again, which he has done in seven straight games. He’ll also top 300 yards, which has happened three times in his last seven outings. But this time, he’ll have more touchdowns and a potential top-five performance this week.

Brady was due for a big game. Playing overseas may be what he needs to get his season back on track, and Fantasy managers will enjoy the results in Week 10.

Cowboys (in GB)

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

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

Buccaneers (vs. SEA)

The Seahawks offense, largely off the back of the emergence of Kenneth Walker III and Geno Smith, comes in as the fourth-highest scoring offense in the NFL, averaging about 27 points per game. They have scored at least 27 points in four of their last five games. Tampa Bay hasn’t lost in five straight games, and the Buccaneers have been held to three or less in three of their last four games. I’m not sure the Buccaneers DST qualifies as a must-have Fantasy option for this week.
