Big Ten Week 11 Preview and Predictions

The wait is over for Ohio State-Michigan State showdown
Big Ten 2014 Week 11 Preview and Predictions

Finally. A Big Ten game with national import.

 

For weeks, the season has been pointing toward Ohio State-Michigan State as the game of the year in the Big Ten, perhaps overshadowing the conference title game.

 

Indeed, the stakes have been building after both teams have been able to rebuild their reputations despite Week 2 losses.

 

The showdown in East Lansing will play a major role in deciding the Big Ten East division, but the battle for the West is just starting when Iowa and Minnesota meet for the Floyd of Rosedale.

DeMarco Murray saw his record streak of 100-yard games come to an end, but the NFL’s leading rusher retains his position atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings for Week 10. The Cowboys are in London to face the Jaguars and Murray could find more running room this Sunday compared to last should Tony Romo return under center.

Steven Hauschka has missed just two of 20 field goal attempts this season

The numbers may not jump out, but Seattle’s Steven Hauschka remains a reliable starting fantasy option, as he checks in near the top of Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 10. Hauschka is currently 10th among kickers in fantasy points (Athlon scoring), after finishing sixth in 2013. Through eight games, Hauschka is on the same pace (16 made field goals, 20 PATs) that he was last season (17, 21), and he’s only missed two field goal attempts thus far.

Jacksonville is in London to play Dallas, but this time the Jaguars’ opponent doesn’t lead off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 10. The Cowboys do check in at No. 3, but this week’s top billing goes to the Seahawks. The defending Super Bowl champions appear to be getting some of their swagger back on defense, and are usually tough at home. It also doesn’t hurt that the Giants will likely be without their top running back and have plenty of issues on offense.

He’s not leading the way anymore, but Jimmy Graham has looked much more like his usual self recently, which is why he is back atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 10. Rob Gronkowski is the top scoring TE in fantasy after back-to-back huge games, but Gronk is on bye this week, ceding the spotlight to Graham.

Wide receiver depth will be tested once again with six teams on bye, but Antonio Brown continues to pace the position in fantasy points and also leads off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 10.

Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 10

Tom Brady won his most recent head-to-head showdown with Peyton Manning, but that’s not enough to knock the reigning MVP from his spot atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 10. For one, Brady is on bye this week (as is Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers).

Is Arizona State a Legitimate College Football Playoff Sleeper?

No. 9 Sun Devils will find out this week against Notre Dame
Is Arizona State a Legitimate College Football Playoff Sleeper?

The last time Arizona State was on this kind of stage, coach Todd Graham exited Sun Devil Stadium using words like “atrocious” and “pathetic.”

 

More than a month after the 62-27 loss to UCLA, Graham still calls that defeat a “disastrous game.”

 

Perhaps the game was disastrous on the field but not disastrous for Arizona State’s 2014 goals.

 

Fantasy Football 2014 Waiver Wire: Week 10

Chris Johnson is coming off of a season-best 101 total yards last week
Fantasy Football 2014 Waiver Wire: Week 10

One monster bye week down, one to go, or at least that’s a way to describe the fantasy landscape as we enter Week 10 of the NFL season. The good news is that Atlanta, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay and Tennessee all return to action this week. The downside is that fantasy owners instead will have to make do without Houston, Indianapolis, Minnesota, New England, San Diego and Washington.
