Fantasy Football Recap Week 10

Looking back at Sunday's fantasy football action

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins

We’re now 10 weeks into the 2022 season and we may have just had the best Sunday yet. This week’s slate offered up some fascinating games with plenty of scoring and back-and-forth action. Our Fantasy Football Recap Week 10 looks back at all the drama.

Let’s look back on Sunday with the FullTime Fantasy Fantasy Football Recap Week 10 and see what we can learn from another Sunday of NFL action.

Don’t Count Your Chickens

That Buffalo versus Minnesota game was wild.

First, we saw an unbelievable catch by Justin Jefferson. Just an amazing one-handed snag on a desperation throw to keep a drive alive.

A few plays later, Jefferson seemingly caught a touchdown, which led to celebrations. Including me, where I sent a troll text to my group text thread. See, I have Jefferson in my lineup and was talking trash.

Oops.

The play was, rightfully, overturned and the Vikings were ultimately stopped short to end the game.

Or at least seemingly.

All the Bills had to do was take a safety or fall forward. They had a 99% chance of winning.

Instead, Josh Allen never handled the snap, and the Vikings recovered the botched hand-off in the end-zone. But, it STILL wasn’t over.

Buffalo drove down the field to send it into overtime. Now, Minnesota still emerged victorious but it drove home the point.

Never start celebrating until it is over. But, as a natural observer, that was a highly-entertaining contest.

With so few teams employing a workhorse running back, it is essential for us to track how coaches divide their backfield touches.
