Who is the QB fraud of Week 10
By: Ken Fernando
FRAUDS Of The Week is a new weekly article series that highlights players who failed the most for the current week. We use Sleepers’ PPR Format for the point system and projections. If a player leaves the game due to an injury and doesn’t come back, he is not part of the list.
QB FRAUD Of The Week: PJ Walker 5.72 FP
108 Passing Yards, 3 Carries, 14 Rushing Yards (Projected: 12.16 FP)
P.J. Walker was the winner of another disappointing TNF matchup between the Falcons and the Panthers. The Panthers QB only threw for 108 yards with no TDs and interceptions. The game plan revolved around D’Onta Foreman and the run game and it was successful as Foreman ran 31 times for 130 yards and a TD. The sad news however is that P.J. has a high-ankle sprain and will not play in Week 11.
RB FRAUD Of The Week: Alvin Kamara 7.50 FP
8 Carries, 26 Rushing Yards, 3 Receptions, 19 Receiving Yards (Projected:18.08 FP)
Alvin Kamara was one of the Saints’ players that struggled in their 20-10 loss to the Steelers. Kamara rushed for 26 yards and caught three passes for 19 of them. The Steelers defense did a good job of limiting Kamara. This is his second consecutive bad game in fantasy as he has scored less than 10 points in each of the past two games. He’ll have a tough matchup with the Rams in Week 11.
WR FRAUD Of The Week: Chase Claypool 1.80 FP
1 Reception, 8 Receiving Yards (Projected: 10.27 FP)
The Bears focused on their run game in their matchup with the Lions and this could be seen in the 20 passing attempts of Justin Fields. One of the unlucky recipients was Chase Claypool. The former Steeler only got two attempts and caught only one for just eight yards. He was supposed to get more targets but the opposite happened. It’s very difficult to trust a Bears WR currently.
TE FRAUD Of The Week: George Kittle 3.10 FP
1 Reception 21 Receiving Yards (Projected: 12.10 FP)
George Kittle fell back to earth in the 49ers’ win over the Chargers. After three straight good games, Kittle was used more as a blocker and it showed. The 49ers TE caught just one pass for 21 yards. San Francisco faces the Cardinals in Week 11 so let’s see if Kittle can bounce back.
DEF/ST FRAUD Of The Week: Cleveland Browns -3 FP
35+ Points Allowed, 1 Sack (Projected: 5.73 FP)
The Cleveland Browns had a challenge against the Miami Dolphins. They failed in that challenge. The Dolphins ran through the Browns with 195 rushing yards. Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert combined for 184 rushing yards and two TDs. Deion Jones and Greg Newsome II combined for the lone sack they had. The Browns head to Buffalo next week so good luck to them.
