fantasy football recap: October 2010 Archives

Terrell Owens, WR, Bengals
10 catches, 222 yards, 1 TD
The most impressive number is the 15 targets, meaning Carson Palmer - who has been struggling all year - is looking TO's way. I can see this as a wake-up call for the entire Cincy offense, and more big numbers coming soon.

Arian Foster, RB, Texans
He's gotta be the early favorite for fantasy MVP this season. His 187 total yards and two TDs (one rushing, one receiving) were stellar.

David Garrard, QB, Jaguars
Raise your hand if you thought he would be the top scoring quarterback this week. That's what I thought. Big win over the Colts, and a big day for Garrard, who completed 17 of 22 passes for 163 and two scores, and also ran one in. Solid.

Giants Defense
Not sure if you heard, but Jay Cutler got sacked a lot on Sunday night. Is it time to start playing any D against the Bears? Let's not go that far, but it's probably not a bad idea.

LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, Jets
Many people wrote him off after a sub-par year in San Diego. Big mistake. He's inching closer and closer to becoming the featured back for the Jets; 133 yards and two scores will only help his cause.

No Stars
Louis Murphy and Darius Heyward-Bey, WR, Raiders
I liked both of them as sleepers this week against Houston. Boy, was I wrong. Seven friggin' yards between them. Thanks fellas.

Eli Manning, QB, Giants
He had 195 passing yards, which isn't horrible. But those two fumbles are killers.

Ray Rice, RB, Ravens
We knew he was banged up coming in. After just 20 yards on the ground, he would've been better off not playing at all.
