All-Star Team of the Week: Week 10
Gordon McGuinness has searched out Week 10's best at every position to put together this All-Star lineup from across the league.
All-Star Team of the Week: Week 10
Another week down and more big performances from players all around the league. Neither Rob Gronkowski or J.J. Watt were in action this week, giving others players at their position a much greater chance at making our Team of the Week.
But who would take advantage? And who surprised us and stood out with a big performance? Here’s the Week 10 All-Star Team of the Week.
(Note: Team will be updated as needed after Monday Night Football and by Wednesday when All-22 footage helps us study plays in even more detail.)
Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers, GB (+5.0)
Apparently Aaron Rodgers decided he wanted to match Ben Roethlisberger’s touchdown tally from last week’s Sunday Night Football, as he torched the Chicago Bears for six scores of his own. He’s graded positively in every game so far this year, highlighting how important it is for the Packers to keep him healthy.
Honorable Mention: Colin Kaepernick, SF
Running Back: Marshawn Lynch, SEA (+3.2)
21 carries for Lynch, going for 144 yards with 11 missed tackles forced on the ground and four touchdowns. A nightmare for the Giants to bring down all night, this was Lynch back at his best.
Honorable Mention: C.J. Anderson
Fullback: John Kuhn, GB (+2.2)
Doing it all from the fullback position, with some solid work on his five rushing attempts to go along with some nice blocking, Kuhn stood out as the best of the bunch this week.
Honorable Mention: Jovorski Lane, TB
Tight End: Brent Celek, PHI (+6.0)
Just because Gronkowski wasn’t playing this week doesn’t mean we were starved of a monster game at the tight end position. Brent Celek racked up 116 yards through the air while having the second highest run blocking grade amongst tight ends this week.
Honorable Mention: Greg Olsen, CAR
Wide Receivers: Dez Bryant, DAL (+4.0) and Jordy Nelson, GB (+3.0)
Wowing the fans in London, no receiver impressed as much as Dez Bryant this week so far. He picked up 158 yards and two touchdowns on just six receptions, averaging 26.3 yards per catch. Nelson wasn’t far behind, picking up 152 yards from six catches, and adding two touchdowns of his own.
Honorable Mentions: Demaryius Thomas, DEN and Jordan Matthews, PHI
Tackles: Joe Staley, SF (+5.0) and Justin Britt, SEA (+4.6)
It’s an NFC West tandem at offensive tackle for this week’s Team of the Week. Allowed just the one hurry each while impressing with some solid run blocking in their teams’ respective wins.
Honorable Mentions: Joe Thomas, CLV and Bobbie Massie, ARZ
Guards: Evan Mathis (+3.6) and Marshal Yanda, BAL (+4.2)
Returning to the field after a Week 1 injury, Evan Mathis slots straight into the Team of the Week after an impressive showing as a run blocker on Monday night. On the right, Yanda also impressed in the running game, and added a perfect game in pass protection too.
Honorable Mentions: Kelechi Osemele, BAL and Zach Martin, DAL
Center: Jeremy Zuttah, (+3.8)
Bouncing back after a rough week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Zuttah was dominant as a run blocker against the Tennessee Titans. He’d struggled over the past month but got back to his best in Week 10.
Honorable Mention: Max Unger, SEA
