As we do each week, let’s take a look at the players in the NFL who has productive fantasy performances but were not owned in many leagues.

Every week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be highlighted. In order to be eligible for inclusion, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues.

Week 10’s list starts off with a quarterback who had been a turnover machine in the previous three games.

1

Quarterback - Sam Darnold, Jets (230 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, 25 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown)

After throwing eight interceptions in his previous three games, Darnold had a turnover-free game on Sunday. He started the scoring off with a two-yard rushing touchdown, his first on the ground this season.

2

Running back - Brian Hill, Falcons (61 rushing yards, 1 reception, 10 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown)

With Ito Smith being placed on injured reserve and Devonta Freeman leaving in Week 10 with an ankle injury, Hill was thrust into lead back duties. With Freeman’s availability unclear for Week 11, Sporting News lists Hill as a player who should be a top waiver priority.
