Week 10 in the NFL brought the Jaguars their first win of the season, the Colts a huge disappointment, the Packers a third-string QB, and the Broncos offense another big days and some new injury concerns.

What did it bring for your fantasy team? That depends on where your players fall in our rundown of all the studs, duds, and sleepers from week 10.  If you missed any of the action so far, get ready for tonight’s all-Florida Monday Night game with this rundown of week 10 so far.

Minnesota Vikings 34, Washington Redskins 27

Studs: In this relatively high-scoring game there were plenty of fantasy points to go around. Robert Griffin  threw for three touchdowns and 281 yards and ran for 44 yards as well. Alfred Morris struggled again to find the end zone running for 139 yards but not getting a touchdown. RG3 continued to rely heavily on two targets making both Pierre Garcon (7 catches, 119 yards, touchdown) and Jordan Reed (6 catches, 62 yards, touchdown) nice plays this week.  On the other side, Adrian Peterson scored a pair of touchdowns while rushing for 75 yards.

Duds: Jerome Simpson and Greg Jennings didn’t get much done in what looked like a solid matchup against the Redskins. Simpson caught four passes for 45 yards and Jennings just three for 18 yards.

Sleepers: The biggest surprise in this one was the emergence of John Carlson  who emerged after Kyle Rudolph’s injury as a tight end option for the Vikings. He finished with a team-high seven catches on a team-high seven targets while leading the team with 98 yards and scoring a touchdown. He’s worth a look if you need TE help the rest of the season especially if Christian Ponder is back under center for the Vikings going forward.
