Welcome to the 2023 Week 10 Fantasy Football Recap.
We are officially in the home stretch of the fantasy football season, as most leagues only have four more regular season matchups before the fantasy playoffs start. This means you have one month to turn it around and make a late push if you are a team on the bubble of making the playoffs.
With only four teams on bye this week that means there is a lot of action to sort through to get ready for next week. Let’s get to the Week 10 Fantasy Football Recap.

Bears 16 - Panthers 13
The Bears offense did just enough to win on Thursday night with Tyson Bagent under center, funneling the majority of the offense through D’Onta Foreman who finished with 92 total yards and a TD. DJ Moore and Cole Kmet each brought in five catches and will have better days ahead when Justin Fields returns, possibly as soon as the next game.
While Bryce Young looked a little better in this one, the Panthers offense is still struggling to get much going as they dropped to 1-8 on the season. Chuba Hubbard was unimpressive as the lead back yet again, and Adam Thielen has fallen out of must-start territory and is more of a Flex/WR3 play at this point.
Colts 10 - Patriots 6
Jonathan Taylor broke free for 69 yards and a touchdown while Michael Pittman hauled in eight of 12 targets for 84 yards as the Colts took down the Patriots in Germany. After a decent start, Gardner Minshew has looked like a backup QB again in the last few weeks.
Jonathan Taylor ran the ball on 9 of the Colts 14 total plays.
Finished the drive off with a TD.

The Mac Jones era in New England may be coming to a close as he was benched in the fourth quarter for the second time this season. Demario Davis hauled in six catches for 84 yards while Rhamondre Stevenson anchored the run game, turning 20 carries into 88 yards while catching three passes for an additional 14 yards.
Texans 30 - Bengals 27
For the first time this season a Texans RB had a good game, as Devin Singletary exploded, turning 30 carries into 150 yards and a score. CJ Stroud stayed hot, firing off 356 passing yards and a TD. Noah Brown had seven catches for 172 yards while Tank Dell had six for 56 yards and a TD. CJ Stroud is currently QB6 in my dynasty ranks, but there’s a very good chance he will move into the top five before the end of the season.
Ja’Marr Chase shook off a nagging back injury and had a monster game for the Bengals, bringing in 5-of-6 targets for 124 yards and a touchdown. Tyler Boyd caught eight passes for 117 yards and is a startable flex option if you’re in a pinch as long as Higgins remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Vikings 27 - Saints 19
Joshua Dobbs looks like he legitimately might save the Vikings season as he accounted for over 320 total yards and two touchdowns as the Vikings took down the Saints. TJ Hockenson had a monster game, bringing in double-digit catches for 134 yards and a TD. Alexander Madison left the game with a concussion and it was Ty Chandler who got lead back duties in relief, turning 15 carries into 45 yards and a score.

Alvin Kamara has come back down to earth after his explosive start to the season, as he was held to just 75 yards in this one. Olave is continuing to round into midseason form, as he caught six of his nine targets for 94 yards and a TD. Derek Carr left this game with a concussion and another throwing shoulder injury, and Jameis Winston stepped in and did Jameis Winston things, throwing for 122 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in relief duty.
Steelers 23 - Packers 19
In one of the surprises of the season, the Steelers continue to win tight games, despite being outgained in yards every single week. This week was no different, as they took down Green Bay 23-19.
Jaylen Warren and Najee Harris put the entire offense on their backs, combining for 216 total yards and two TDs. Diontae Johnson came crashing back down to earth after a strong two weeks, catching just one pass for 17 yards.

Christian Watson‘s disappointing season continued in this one as he was only able to bring in two catches for 23 yards, and is looking like a potential drop candidate moving forward if you need the roster space. Rookie Jayden Reed had another big game, bringing in all of his targets for 84 yards and a TD. Jordan Love was up and down in this one, finishing with 289 yards to go with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Buccaneers 20 - Titans 6
Rachaad White and Mike Evans are looking like potential league-winners with where they were drafted this past off-season. Their productive seasons raged on Sunday, as they each had big games in the Buccaneers' victory over the Titans. Mike Evans had six catches for 143 yards and a TD while White finished with 98 total yards and a score. Baker Mayfield continues to return QB2 value, as he fired off 278 yards and two TD passes.
Will Levis’s scorching hot start cooled off in a major way against a solid Tampa Bay defense, as he failed to reach the end zone or 200 yards passing. Rookie Tyjae Spears turned nine touches into 60 yards while workhorse RB Derrick Henry struggled and was held to 20 total yards. DeAndre Hopkins saw eight targets but was only able to bring in three for 27 yards.
49ers 34 - Jaguars 3
Christian McCaffrey’s TD streak ended but he was excellent overall, breaking free for 142 yards as the 49ers took down the Jaguars in convincing fashion. Brock Purdy was dialed in, finishing 19-for-26 with 296 yards and three TDs. Deebo Samuel returned from injury and had 59 total yards while George Kittle led the way with 116 receiving yards and a score.
This throw from Brock Purdy is insane. Like, how?pic.twitter.com/WPR9vhazdH

Christian Kirk was the only Jaguars skill player to have a productive day for fantasy purposes on Sunday, securing six of his 11 targets for 104 yards. Trevor Lawrence’s disappointing season continued as the 49ers defense, which was due for a bounce-back week, gave him headaches all game long. While it is discouraging that Lawrence is still struggling this deep into the season, I think he is a strong buy-low candidate in dynasty leagues.
Browns 33 - Ravens 31
It appears that Jerome Ford is officially over the ankle injury that cost him time earlier in the season as he turned 17 carries into 107 yards and looks like he is the clear lead back in the Browns RB rotation again. Amari Cooper and David Njoku were Deshaun Watson‘s favorite targets on Sunday, combining for 12 catches and 156 yards.
This week's waiver wire darling Keaton Mitchell didn’t get a lot of work but saved his fantasy day with a touchdown. Zay Flowers led the Ravens in catches, yards, and targets, but it was Odell Beckham who took his only catch to the house for a 40-yard touchdown. Lamar Jackson had another tough game as he was picked off twice, but he added 41 rushing yards that made his fantasy day somewhat respectable.
Cardinals 25 - Falcons 23
The Cardinals won in Kyler Murray’s return, as he threw for 249 yards with 33 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground and his first action of the year. Trey McBride‘s breakout is fully in motion, and he appears to be one of the biggest winners of Murray’s return as he hauled in eight of his nine targets for 131 yards and is a locked-in TE1 moving forward.
A sack here and the game is over.
Instead, Kyler Murray does what he’s always done.

Bijon Robinson was finally handed the workload we’ve wanted him to get all along and he responded with 106 total yards and a touchdown, making the continued misuse of him this season even more head-scratching. Neither Drake London nor Kyle Pitts were able to get anything going through the air, combining for 6 catches for 66 total yards. Desmond Ridder finished this game under center after Taylor Heinicke left with an injury.
Lions 41 - Chargers 38
Jared Goff led the way with 333 passing yards and two TDs as the Lions took down the Chargers in what was the game of the day on Sunday. David Montgomery returned and broke off 116 yards and a touchdown, but Jahmyr Gibbs remained a focal point with 17 touches that he turned into 112 yards and two scores. Amon-Ra St. Brown hauled in eight of nine targets for 156 yards and his fourth TD of the season.
Well, this loss certainly stings for Chargers fans, Fantasy GMs that invested in the key pieces of this offense are definitely walking away from this game feeling good. Justin Herbert was outstanding, firing off 323 yards and four touchdowns in a tough-luck loss. Keenan Allen torched the secondary routinely for 175 yards and two TDs, while Austin Ekeler broke free for 115 total yards and a score.
Cowboys 49 - Giants 17
Dak Prescott was absolutely elite in the Cowboys' dismantling of the Giants on Sunday, throwing for 404 yards with five total TDs. CeeDee Lamb and Brandon Cooks combined for 20 catches that went for over 300 yards and two scores. The only negative in Dallas right now is that Tony Pollard struggled to get anything going once again and is looking more like a low-end RB2 with upside only because of the offense he plays in.
Goodness gracious this catch from CeeDee Lamb.
— RJ Ochoa (@rjochoa) November 12, 2023
It’s hard to find much good to say about the Giants' skill players from a fantasy perspective after this embarrassing effort as Saquon Barkley led the team with just 61 total yards, and both players that caught TD passes from Tommy DeVito are on waivers in 95+% of leagues. Barkley is the only player on this offense you can feel confident starting until something changes for this team in a major way.
Seahawks 29 - Commanders 26
Geno Smith had a much-needed bounce-back week for Fantasy GMS as he threw for 369 yards and two TDs, spreading the ball all over while connecting with four different receivers who finished with 50+ receiving yards. Kenneth Walker III had a big fantasy day that was mostly boosted by a 64-yard catch that he took to the house for a TD.
If there is one that the Commanders can take away from their first 10 games of the season is that they have found their QB of the future In Sam Howell. Howell did everything he could to keep them in the game with his 312 passing yards with three TDs. Even more impressive is that he led what should have been a game-winning TD drive with three minutes left before the Washington defense collapsed in the final minute of the game.
Raiders 16 - Jets 12
Man, it is hard to express how much more motivated this Raiders team looks since they let go of head coach Josh McDaniels two weeks ago. They are finally featuring their star players and it’s turning into victories, what a concept. Josh Jacobs was a workhorse again, shouldering the load with 29 total touches for 127 yards. Davante Adams led the team with six catches and 86 yards as the second game of the Aidan O’Connell era in Vegas continues to roar on.
— Las Vegas Raiders (@Raiders) November 13, 2023
Garrett Wilson had a big game for the Jets in a losing effort, catching nine passes for 93 yards. After exploding back onto the scene earlier in the year Breece Hall has failed to get it going on the ground for consecutive weeks, and today was no different as he was held to just 28 yards on 13 carries. The one saving grace for Hall was that he caught 3 passes and was able to break loose on one and turn it into a 35-yard gain.
