Week 10 Live Blog

Sunday, November 10, 2013


Welcome to Week 10 of the National Football League fantasy division. I will be your conductor on this journey into the depths of fantasy football angst and jubilation. We'll start with the actives and inactives and then I'll keep you updated on all of the Sunday action. 


We also have Week 10 Rankings from Mr. Pat Daugherty, Nick Mensio’s sleeper picks, Jeff Ratcliffe's D/ST picks, my AFC and NFC Targets and Touches and Evan Silva's detailed look at every game in his Matchup Column. So click on all of those and read them word for word and I'll quiz you when you get back.


Follow me on Twitter for more information on bird feeding, egg, potato and cheese breakfast tacos and animal clips.




1 PM Inactives/Actives
