Burn City Fantasy Football Flavor of Week 10 Results

© Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Week 10 of the NFL season concluded yesterday and some players did exceptionally well or heavily disappointed fantasy-wise.

Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!

Last Monday, I went over three players you should either trade for, claim off waivers or cut on the Burn City Sports premium content service, Burn+. 

Overall, the players I highlighted did well, even though one guess got points that I did not expect at all from.

With that, let’s see how I did with the three players I mentioned in the first ever Burn City Fantasy Football Flavor of the Week.

*All stats from*

Trade For: RB David Montgomery, Detroit Lions

First, my trade suggestion was a hit.

Previously, I said that Montgomery was dealing with a rib injury and there was a possibility he wasn’t going to play yesterday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

As a Lion, Montgomery started in five games, rushed for 385 yards on 94 carries and has six touchdowns before his injury.

When looking at a buy-low candidate, Montgomery was the perfect target to trade for since his stock was dropping with the setback.

Before, Montgomery was averaging 15.8 fantasy points per game while owned in 95% of ESPN and Yahoo leagues, as of Nov. 6.

However, Montgomery did return versus the Chargers and ran for 116 yards on 12 carries and scored 1 touchdown.

Additionally, that stat line gave fantasy owners 17.6 points yesterday which is very respectable.

Because of this, Montgomery is the 12th-16th best running back in NFL fantasy football, according to various experts.

If you were to have taken advantage and snagged Montgomery before coming off an injury, now you can reap the rewards.

Waiver Wire Pickup: WR Noah Brown, Houston Texans

At only 2% rostered on Yahoo and 1% on ESPN, Brown was a sneaky player that I recommended picking up before it was not too late.

On Nov. 5, Brown was the Houston Texans (5-4) leader in yards as he had 153, including him catching a 75-yard pass from Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud for a TD in a 39-37 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brown put up 21.7 fantasy points last week and is starting to breakout out as a serious threat for Houston.

Also, fantasy users are starting to catch on as 25% of Yahoo and 24% of ESPN leagues now have Brown rostered on a team.

I was slightly wrong because I did say that Brown could be a risky pickup for 10-team leagues and below.

This next statement, however, was nailed on.

“In contrast, for 12+ team leagues, getting Brown with not many other decent options available on the waiver wire could sneakily net you massive points in the long run.”

Well, Brown had 7 receptions for 172 yards and even though he didn’t record a TD, he still registered 17.2 points for fantasy in the 30-27 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

The upside for Brown continues to grow and more and more leagues will be snagging this guy up as the season rolls on.

Additionally, the Texans play the Arizona Cardinals (2-8) on Nov. 19, so that is a very eye-opening matchup that Brown could take charge in.

Drop: QB Clayton Tune, Arizona Cardinals

With the return of Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray against the Atlanta Falcons, I was fully expecting not to see Clayton Tune play at all and there was no reason to have him rostered anymore.

Furthermore, with only 58 yards thrown and not scoring a point of offense against the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 5, I was really confused with why other media outlets/personalities were recommending picking up Tune beforehand.

“Personally, I did not understand the reasoning behind this because Tune has never been a No. 1 QB in the NFL and the Browns have an elite defense.”

Following his first NFL start of his career, fantasy users weren’t impressed whatsoever as 0% on ESPN and 1% on Yahoo have Tune rostered.

Shockingly, Tune came into the game against the Falcons yesterday and was pushed into the end zone by other teammates for a touchdown with 0:19 left in the third quarter.

Due to getting a TD, Tune earned 6.1 fantasy points from that one play.

Now, I would not say I necessarily was wrong because he is still a drop in my books, but if somehow you kept him on your roster, you got some decent points yesterday, funnily enough.


Burn City Fantasy Football Flavor of Week 11 will be coming out tomorrow, Nov. 14 on Burn+.
