Zegura's Fantasy Football Fact Sheet: Week 10


  1. Quarterbacks have produced multiple touchdowns in seven of the Browns eight games this year and have produced multiple scores in every single game played outside of First Energy Stadium. Matthew Stafford is red hot right now and has produced at least 400 yards passing or multiple touchdowns in four straight games. Last week he went 26-of-33 for 361 yards and two scores against the Packers to mark his third straight 300-plus yard day.
  1. The Browns boast the league's fourth-ranked run defense, allowing just 84.2 yards rushing per game. They are giving up only 2.9 yards per carry, however, which is the best in the entire NFL (second-best is 3.4 yards per carry!)
  1. Forty percent of all rushes against the Browns have gone for no gain or negative yardage, which is the highest rate in the NFL.
  1. No runner has rushed for 70 yards against the Browns all season, and they have allowed just one running back rushing touchdown in the last five games.
  1. Ameer Abdullah has not rushed for 55 yards in four straight games and has not produced 60 total yards even once during that span. He did score last week but managed just 48 yards on 21 carries against Green Bay.
  1. Theo Riddick has at least four catches and 45-plus yards in three of his last four games and is coming off of a season-high 62 yards receiving against Green Bay. He has not scored since Week 1, nor has he rushed for even 25 yards in a game this season.
  1. The opposing No. 1 receiver has scored in six of the last seven against the Browns, and in their last game, Adam Thielen produced 98 yards and a score, making him only the third receiver to top 65 yards against the Browns this year.
  1. Marvin Jones Jr. may be the hottest receiver in the NFL over his last four games. In that span he has been targeted 44 times (second most in the league) and has 25 catches for 385 yards (also second most) and three touchdowns (third in the NFL). Jones has produced at least six catches and 96 yards in three straight games and has topped 100 yards in each of his last two.
  1. Golden Tate has been no slouch himself over the last three, either. Tate has seven catches in three straight games and has at least 86 yards receiving in all three games as well. Over his last three starts, Tate has caught 21 of his 24 targets for 295 yards and a touchdown.
  1. The Browns have allowed at least 60 yards receiving or a touchdown to tight ends in five straight games and seven of eight this year. Tight end Eric Ebron has not produced 60 yards in a game this year and his only touchdown came back in Week 2.
  1. DeShone Kizer has not thrown a touchdown pass or passed for 200 yards in a game since Week 3. After starting his career with multiple touchdowns in two of his first three games, he has just one total touchdown and four interceptions in his last four. The Lions have held teams without a passing touchdown in two of their eight games this year and have allowed multiple passing scores in just three of their eight games.
  1. The Lions have the sixth-ranked run defense in the NFL, but they have allowed a running back to score in six straight games. They have allowed two 100-yard rushers this year (Mark Ingram and Devonta Freeman), but have also had four games in which no back even reached 35 yards on the ground against them.
  1. Isaiah Crowell found the end zone for the first time this year in his last start against Minnesota and posted season-bests in rushing yards (64) and total yards (118). Crowell has at least four catches in each of his last two starts (90 yards total receiving) and has rushed for at least 58 yards in three of his last four.
  1. Duke Johnson Jr. has 70-plus total yards or a touchdown in five of the last seven games, but the two exceptions have come in the last three starts. Only one runner has produced more than 45 yards receiving against the Lions, and that was David Johnson back in Week 1. No back has even gotten to 40 yards receiving against the Lions since Week 3, and they have allowed only one back to catch a touchdown against them all year.
  1. A receiver has caught a touchdown against the Lions in three of the last four games, with four total during that span. However, over the past four games, only JuJu Smith-Schuster (193 yards) has produced more than 70 yards against them.
  1. Kenny Britt is the only active receiver on the Browns roster with a touchdown this year, and it came back in Week 3 against the Colts.
  1. Ricardo Louis and Rashard Higgins have produced 126 yards combined in their last three games.
  1. No tight end has scored against the Lions since Week 2 and Ed Dickson (175 yards in Week 5) is the only tight end to produced even 50 yards against the Lions this year. In fact, outside of Dickson, no group of tight ends has even hit the 50-yard mark against the Lions since Week 2.
  1. David Njoku has 48 yards or a touchdown in four of his last seven games, but in the three that he did not, he managed just 30 yards total. Njoku had a season-high seven targets last week and has at least five targets in three straight games, but he has only six catches for 77 yards on those 17 targets.

3 to Start

  1. QB Jared Goff vs. HOU: Be careful folks, Goff is so hot right now you might burn your finger if you touched him. I told you start Goff last week and he responded with a career-high four passing touchdowns against the Giants and he just might go for four again. The last three starting quarterbacks to face the Texans have combined to throw for 1,084 yards and nine touchdowns.
  1. RB Jordan Howard vs. GB: No one has been force fed the rock like Jordan Howard of late, as the second-year back has toted the ball a whopping 80 times in his last three games while rushing for 334 yards. The Packers have allowed 100-plus total yards or a touchdown and double-digit FanDuel points to seven straight lead backs, including Howard, who scored and posted 13.3 FanDuel points back in Week 4. This time, the Pack won't have Aaron Rodgers and the game script should favor Howard significantly.
  1. TE Evan Engram at SF: Engram IS the Giants' passing offense right now and comes into Week 10 averaging six catches for 71 yards and a touchdown per game over his last three. In that span, Engram has scored a touchdown, while hitting the 60-yard and 15 FanDuel-point mark in every game. The 49ers have allowed a tight end touchdown in three straight at well, which means Double E will be Double Trouble for the Niners.
