Who was the best QB Dawg of Week 10?
By: Ken Fernando
DAWGS Of The Week is a new weekly article series highlighting players who surpassed their projections the most for the current week. We use Sleepers’ PPR Format for the point system and forecasts. Let’s take a look back at the players that swung their team to victory this week.
QB DAWG Of The Week: Justin Fields 40.38 FP
167 Passing Yards, 2 Passing TDs, 1 Interception, 13 Carries, 147 Rushing Yards, 2 Rushing TDs (Projected: 20.13 FP)
Justin Fields has been the talk of the football world with another immaculate performance in the Week 10 loss to the Lions. He ran 13 times for 147 yards and two TDs. This includes an incredible 67-yard TD run that put him into history. On the passing attack, the Bears QB threw for 167 passing yards and a couple of TDs. Cole Kmet was the lucky recipient of both of them. Even with the loss, Justin Fields and the Bears look like a team with a bright future ahead.
RB DAWG Of The Week: Alec Ingold 14.50 FP
4 Receptions, 45 Receiving Yards, 1 Receiving TD (Projected: 1.66 FP)
Alec Ingold surprised everyone in the Dolphins’ win over the Browns. The fullback caught four passes for 45 yards and a TD. He isn’t expected to repeat this performance so it’s wise not to pick him up from the waiver wire.
WR DAWG Of The Week: Christian Watson 32.70 FP
4 Receptions, 107 Receiving Yards, 3 Receiving TDs (Projected: 6.40 FP)
Aaron Rodgers may have found his new Robin and his name is Christian Watson. The young Packers’ WR came out of nowhere and caught three TDs from Rodgers. Watson caught a 58-yard, 39-yard, and 7-yard TD passes and was instrumental in the Green Bay upset win over the Cowboys. This was a key win for the Packers as they were in the midst of a 5-game losing streak. The Packers face the Titans in TNF so we will see soon if Watson can repeat this performance.
TE DAWG Of The Week: Cole Kmet 23.40 FP
4 Receptions, 74 Receiving Yards, 2 Receiving TDs (Projected: 7.42 FP)
Cole Kmet showed why he is Justin Fields‘ favorite target in the close loss to the Lions. The Bears TE caught four passes, two for TDs including a 50-yard bomb. This is his second straight 20-pt fantasy performance and he looks like a steal for a TE. Currently, he’s only owned in 53% of all Sleeper rosters so add him up while you still have a chance.
DEF/ST DAWG Of The Week: Washington Commanders 17 FP
2 Forced Fumbles, 3 Fumble Recoveries, 1 Defense TD, 1 Interception, 2 Sacks (Projected: 5.25 FP)
The Washington Commanders pulled off an incredible upset over the Philadelphia Eagles, the last undefeated team in the league. In MNF, the defense stepped up and was able to stop this elite offense. After allowing 14 points in the first quarter, this is how the defense played. Darrick Forrest had a fantastic interception in the 2nd quarter. John Ridgeway forced a controversial fumble. Benjamin St-Juste forced a key fumble after a 50-yard reception by Quez Watkins. Finally, the defense scored a last-second TD after DeVonta Smith tried to lateral it. This win keeps Washington afloat and the NFL went wild because of their win.
