Fantasy football Week 10 got underway Thursday night as the Baltimore Ravens battled it out with the Cleveland Browns.  Let's see what fantasy football-relevant performances came out of the game:

-It was a mixed bag performance from Ravens QB Joe Flacco who completed 30-of-41 throws for 296 yards and 3 touchdowns.  However Flacco also tossed two interceptions and continues to show issues with turning it over.  Flacco has made a career out of being a backup fantasy football QB at best and so even after tossing for the three scores, that status won't change. 

-Isaiah Crowell has quietly been very good running the football this season for the Browns but his performance was pathetic Thursday night as he rushed for just 23 yards on 9 carries.  With Crowell not having much of any receiving game, he is a complete fantasy football no-show when he has rushing games like this.  He remains a standard league play only. 

-Kenneth Dixon continues to show flashes of big-time speed (6 carries for 38 yards) but he is not challenging Terrance West just yet in terms of the starting running back job for the Ravens.  West was just all right Thursday night as he picked up 65 yards on 21 carries.  If West keeps up the so-so games, Dixon will make his case for more work.  Also Dixon showed he could be a prime PPR guy as he caught 5 passes for 42 yards and so is he is lurking there on your waiver wire, strike now. 

-Terrelle Pryor did just enough in PPR formats to keep his WR 3 status going as he caught 5 passes for 48 yards.  If only Pryor had a decent QB to throw to him, he would really be something.  Also Corey Coleman was a non-factor in catching just 3 passes for 17 yards.  He needs work and will get better as the season goes on. 

-Steve Smith will never get old.  The ageless wonder caught 5 passes for 60 yards and a touchdown despite being banged up and WR 3 status remains his standing.  Also Dennis Pitta being healthy has shown how good of a fantasy football tight end he can be as he contributed 6 catches for 26 yards.  Play him in PPR setups.
