Bigger in Texas: Cowboys, Texans boom in Week 10

Elijah Southwick


C.J. Stroud did it again on Sunday, leading his team in the Houston Texans’ 30-27 dramatic victory against the Cincinnati Bengals. Along the way, Stroud threw for 356 passing yards, feeding Noah Brown, Tank Dell, and Dalton Schultz throughout the day. Devin Singletary also came up big with 150 rushing yards and a touchdown on 30 carries. He also caught a pass for 11 yards. The Texans are red hot, and their fantasy football impact has been remarkable in recent weeks.

No team put up a better offensive showing than the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The Cowboys scored a ridiculous 49 points on 640 total yards of offense. Dak Prescott accounted for 404 passing yards and four touchdowns.

CeeDee Lamb and Brandin Cooks finally looked like the duo that many were expecting them to become early in the season. Cooks led the team in receiving with nine catches for 173 yards and a touchdown. Lamb had 11 catches of his own for 151 yards and a touchdown. Jake Ferguson and Michael Gallup caught Prescott’s other two touchdowns.

Prescott has thrown for 1,082 yards and 11 touchdowns in the last three weeks alone, also adding a nice 50 yards rushing. He’s a locked and loaded QB1 for the rest of the fantasy football season.

Tony Pollard seems to be the biggest loser of the team’s sudden burst of passing production. Pollard gained just 55 yards on 15 carries Sunday, and he didn’t see a target in the passing game. His 5.5 fantasy points marked his third straight single-digit scoring performance. He’s been one of the biggest disappointments of the season in terms of early round running back draft picks in fantasy football.

There were other impressive team performances on Sunday to note as well. The 49ers rolled to a 34-3 victory over the Jaguars behind another exceptional performance from Brock Purdy. The Browns came back and defeated the Ravens, who were one of the most in-form teams in the league heading into Sunday. And the Detroit Lions improved to 7-2 after a game-winning field goal on the road against the Chargers.

Josh Dobbs continued to amaze in the Vikings’ 27-19 victory over the Saints. He’s climbed all the way up to QB8 on the season in six point passing touchdown formats, and the return of Justin Jefferson as early as next week has him firmly in the rest of season QB1 discussion. His 368 rushing yards rank second among NFL quarterbacks. In dynasty formats, it might be time to start valuing Dobbs as a quarterback who will be in the mix to earn a season-long starting job in 2024.

There are only four weeks remaining in the fantasy football regular season. The league’s red-hot offenses are emerging as invaluable to fantasy football success, and time is running out for other options to counter their impact. If these trends continue, we could see Week 10’s biggest producers lead their managers to fantasy football glory.
