Fantasy RB Rankings Week 10: Who to start, sit at running back in fantasy football

  Fantasy RB Rankings Week 10: Who to start, sit at running back in fantasy football With several key running backs returning from injuries and only a couple important runners out because of byes, things are looking up in Week 10 fantasy RB rankings.The four teams on bye -- Bears, Texans, Giants, Bengals -- don't possess the strongest group of backs. Joe Mixon will be missed, but fantasy owners are used to being without Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Montgomery. Khalil Herbert and Devontae Booker have certainly had their moments, but you can't be too upset when players you got on waivers less than a month ago are taking the week off. And you also can't be upset when David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay are on bye.

These players saw their fantasy values increase or decrease most based on their performances in Week 11:

Sizzlers

WR Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings: The Randy Moss comparisons may not be too far off. Coming off a 143-yard receiving game against the Chargers, Jefferson followed that gem with a 169-yard performance with a pair of touchdowns against Green Bay.

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

WR Elijah Moore, New York Jets: With Moore, the Jets are getting exactly that. The rookie second-round draft pick has scored in three consecutive games, and this past week he erupted for a career-best 141 receiving yards. Moore has seen 25 targets over his last three games; his usage and opportunity are sky-high right now.

10 fantasy hockey takeaways: Elias Pettersson is back

  10 fantasy hockey takeaways: Elias Pettersson is back The problem with a player like Elias Pettersson in fantasy hockey is if he's not finding the scoresheet, he's not giving you much. Pettersson is one of the bright young stars in the NHL, but he doesn't do much for fantasy managers during cold stretches like the one he endured to open the 2021-22 campaign. With no high-end hitting or shot-blocking seasons on his resume, the games where Pettersson is held without a point can really hurt. ThePettersson is one of the bright young stars in the NHL, but he doesn't do much for fantasy managers during cold stretches like the one he endured to open the 2021-22 campaign.

TE Zach Ertz, Arizona Cardinals: Colt McCoy peppered Ertz with nine targets, good for eight receptions, 88 yards and two touchdowns. As he has acclimated himself to this new Arizona offense, his usage has also continued to climb.

QB Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers: Newton continues to turn back the clock in his former home, completing 21-of-27 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns. He added yet another rushing touchdown as well, completing a very solid fantasy day.

QB Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles: It is never pretty, but Philadelphia is winning with Hurts. He had just 13 completions but as usual, found a way to offset his meager passing totals by rushing 18 times for 69 yards and three touchdowns.

Fizzlers

RB Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears: The rookie's role was in question with the return of David Montgomery. We found out quickly vs. Baltimore when Herbert had one rushing attempt for no yards.

NFL Week 11 Weather Updates: Rain, wind in forecast unlikely to affect fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions

  NFL Week 11 Weather Updates: Rain, wind in forecast unlikely to affect fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions There's plenty of rain and some wind in the Week 11 NFL weather forecast. With the help of meteorologist Kevin Roth from RotoGrinders, we break down the key weather updates ahead of your fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions.Before we get into the Week 11 forecasts, here's a reminder that if you have any questions about sports weather or how weather could impact play (and, potentially, your fantasy, DFS, and gambling decisions), don't hesitate to reach out to RotoGrinders' meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (@KevinRothWx) or check out the hourly NFL weather forecasts on RotoGrinders.

RB Zack Moss, Buffalo Bills: Game script worked against him with Buffalo falling behind early, but Moss totaled just five rushing yards and was unable to convert his one target in the passing game.

WR Michael Pittman Jr., Indianapolis Colts: Indianapolis likes to spread the ball around and with the return of T.Y. Hilton to the lineup, Pittman's stats have degraded. His last three weeks have been on a steady decline, dipping to a two-reception effort for 23 yards receiving this past week. Pittman also faces two tough secondaries come fantasy playoff time (New England and Arizona) which is not ideal.

WR Bryan Edwards, Las Vegas Raiders: Coming off his most productive game of the season, Edwards was not targeted on Sunday and had one rushing attempt for zero yards.

Upon Further Review: Why Jonathan Taylor belongs in the MVP conversation, the fix the Bills must make, and Chicago's dead man walking

  Upon Further Review: Why Jonathan Taylor belongs in the MVP conversation, the fix the Bills must make, and Chicago's dead man walking Jonathan Taylor is building a buzz with his 5-TD day. Meanwhile, the Bills might need to make a change, and the Bears also have a big problem.And Taylor also continued an individual campaign worthy of MVP consideration.

TE Dan Arnold, Jacksonville Jaguars: It's a reminder that Jacksonville isn't going to win many games this year. While Arnold has been the talk of the town at tight end these last three weeks, he vanished in a 30-10 loss to San Francisco without registering a single target.
