Week 10 in the NFL brings another 11-game main slate on DraftKings and another chance for players to compete for a million-dollar top prize in the $3.5M Fantasy Football Millionaire contest. We’ll track that contest throughout the day and keep you up to date on the leading entries along with the highlights from around the NFL.
You can also find coverage throughout the day on The Dream Stream where Leaderboard Live will keep you up to speed and offer analysis for all the big plays and injuries throughout Sunday.
In one of the best finishes of any game this season, the Cardinals rallied and beat the Bills with the play highlighted below. That huge connection from Kyler Murray ($8,000; 30.9 DKFP) to DeAndre Hopkins ($7,700; 28.7 DKFP) pushed an entry from ‘meaganjoy’ to the top of the heap in the Milly Maker. The Murray-Hopkins stack was a popular option with both players owned in over 15% of lineups. Key differentiators in the leading entry were Josh Jacobs ($6,500; 32.6 DKFP), Diontae Johnson ($5,200; 26.6 DKFP), Logan Thomas ($3,300; 10.6 DKFP) and Cole Beasley ($4,700; 30.9 DKFP), who were all owned in less than 5% of lineups.
The ‘meaganjoy’ entry finished almost five points clear of the second place entry from ‘randers.’ That entry got a big game from Josh Allen ($7,500; 29.36 DKFP) and Stefon Diggs ($7,500; 25.3 DKFP), but like the Bills, came up just short of taking home the win this week.

4 p.m. ET games — Second Half
Early in the second half, the Bills built on their lead with a touchdown from Beasley, who also finished with over 100 yards, but Murray answered with a rushing score before another FG from Zane Gonzalez brought Arizona to within four points at 23-19. Murray added another rushing score to eventually put Arizona out in front. With just 34 seconds left, though, Allen hit Diggs for the lead, but they left too much time for Murray and Hopkins, who connected on this touchdown as the defining moment in what was a great game and the highlight of the week.

Elsewhere in the Cardinals’ division, the NFC West, the Rams got another touchdown from Malcolm Brown ($4,700; 19.1 DKFP) as they opened up a 10-point lead on the Seahawks. The Rams D/ST ($2,200; 13.0 DKFP) did a great job shutting down Russell Wilson ($7,700; 12.92 DKFP), forcing him into three turnovers including the one in the highlight below.
In a great matchup of rookie QBs, Tua Tagovailoa ($5,600; 14.66 DKFP) led the Dolphins to a 29-21 win over Justin Herbert ($6,600; 21.48 DKFP) and the Chargers. After Herbert hit Hunter Henry ($4,100; 13.0 DKFP) for a touchdown to cut the lead to 17-13, Tua threw his second touchdown of the game in the highlight below. Keenan Allen ($7,100; 12.9 DKFP) had a late touchdown, but RB Salvon Ahmed ($4,000; 16.0 DKFP) had a strong showing to lead the Dolphins’ backfield in Tua’s third-straight win.
Jacobs and the Raiders pulled away from the Broncos in the second half. Broncos’ QB Drew Lock ($5,500; 10.98 DKFP) struggled, and former-Bronco Devontae Booker ($4,000; 21.3 DKFP) even had a pair of touchdowns as the backup RB as Vegas dominated.
The Saints played the second half without Drew Brees ($6,400; 6.94 DKFP), who was questionable to return with a rib injury, but never re-entered the game. Jameis Winston ($5,100; 2.32 DKFP) took over and led the team to a field goal in the third quarter before Alvin Kamara ($8,200; 34.8 DKFP) put the game away with his third touchdown of the day, and the Saints D/ST ($3,000; 14.0 DKFP) came up with multiple big plays down the stretch.
In the final game of the day to finish, the Steelers stayed undefeated behind another big game from Big Ben Roethlisberger ($6,200; 32.32 DKFP), who threw four touchdowns, including two second-half strikes to Chase Claypool ($5,800; 21.3 DKFP). Pittsburgh cruised to a 36-10 win to improve to 9-0.
4 p.m. ET games — First Half
It was a busy late afternoon slate in Week 10 with six games kicking off around 4 p.m. ET. The first score from the late games was a one-yard rushing touchdown from Salvon Ahmed ($4,000), who put the Dolphins up 7-0. Later in the first quarter, Tua Tagovailoa ($5,600) hit Jakeem Grant ($3,000) in the highlight below for another touchdown to put Miami up 14-0 in the battle of the two rookie QBs. Justin Herbert ($6,600) answered back for the Chargers and ran in for the touchdown to cut the deficit in half before Jason Sanders kicked a FG to make it 17-7 at halftime.
In an AFC West matchup, the Raiders took the early lead on the Broncos after a rushing touchdown from Josh Jacobs ($6,500). Brandon McManus kicked a pair of field goals and Daniel Carlson answered with one of his own. Just before halftime, it looked like the Broncos were going to take the lead but Drew Lock ($5,500) threw an interception in the red zone, so the Raiders held a 10-6 advantage at halftime.
The Cardinals hosted the Bills in another late game, and Buffalo got on the board first with a trick play in which QB Josh Allen ($7,500) caught a touchdown pass from WR Isaiah McKenzie ($3,000). Each team also kicked three field goals, so Buffalo went into halftime leading, 16-9.
The Saints were coming off a big win last week over the Bucs, but they fell behind early to the short-handed 49ers on a pass from Nick Mullens ($5,300) to Brandon Aiyuk ($5,700) and a FG to go up 10-0. New Orleans got things turned around, though, and tied the game at 10 with a touchdown from Alvin Kamara ($8,200) midway through the second quarter. Kamara got his second score of the game just before halftime on a three-yard pass from Drew Brees ($6,400), as the Saints took the 17-10 lead into halftime.
In one of the two big divisional matchups, the Seahawks visited the Rams and took the lead with a first quarter touchdown from Alex Collins ($4,000), but Darrell Henderson Jr. ($5,900) answered back with a rushing touchdown of his own to put the Rams back up, 10-7. Malcolm Brown ($4,700) also had a touchdown to put the Rams ahead by two scores as the Seahawks’ defense continued to struggle. After Seattle added a FG, the Rams led 17-13 at halftime.
The unbeaten Steelers hosted the Bengals in the other late game and took the lead on a pair of Chris Boswell field goals. At the end of the first quarter, Ben Roethlisberger ($6,200) opened it up and took the deep shot to Diontae Johnson ($5,200) in the highlight below to put the Steelers up, 12-0. On Cincinnati’s next drive, Joe Burrow ($5,700) connected with Tee Higgins ($5,500) on fourth down to keep the Bengals close. Big Ben answered back, though, with an eight-yard touchdown to JuJu Smith-Schuster ($6,100) to put Pittsburgh back ahead, 19-7.
1 p.m. ET games — Second Half
In Green Bay, the Jaguars continued to give the Packers all they could handle. Keelan Cole ($3,400; 21.7 DKFP) had his second touchdown of the day to tie the game at 17-17 in the third quarter, and the Jaguars actually took a lead in the fourth quarter with a FG. After leaving briefly with an ankle injury, Davante Adams ($9,000; 19.6 DKFP) returned just in time to score the go-ahead touchdown in the highlight below with under 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Aaron Rodgers ($7,900; 29.4 DKFP) and the Pack escaped with a 24-20 win over Jacksonville.
The Eagles tried to climb back into their divisional matchup against the Giants. Boston Scott ($6,000; 14.4 DKFP) had a long touchdown run and Corey Clement ($4,000; 6.5 DKFP) also scored on the ground sandwiched around the second touchdown of the day for Wayne Gallman Jr. ($4,500; 19.0 DKFP). With the Eagles within seven points, Darius Slayton ($4,800; 14.3 DKFP) made the catch in the highlight below to set up a Graham Gano FG that put the Giants up, 27-17, which was the final score.
The Browns led the Texans 3-0 after a pretty slow first half and Nick Chubb ($6,800; 21.6 DKFP) had the first touchdown of the game at the beginning of the fourth quarter and finished with an impressive 126 yards in his return. It took Houston until just over 5:00 left in the game to get on the scoreboard, which they did on a touchdown pass from Deshaun Watson ($6,900) to Pharaoh Brown ($2,500; 10.1 DKFP). Ultimately, though, it was too little too late as the Browns hung on for the 10-7 win.
The Bucs and Panthers were tied 17-17 at halftime, but Tampa Bay opened things up with a big third quarter, highlighted by the 98-yard touchdown below by Ronald Jones II ($5,300). Tampa Bay went up 32-17 before a rushing score from Teddy Bridgewater ($6,100; 20.04 DKFP) cut the deficit to 32-23. Tom Brady ($6,300; 34.84 DKFP) had one of his trademark QB sneaks to put the game away, though, giving the Bucs a 38-23 lead, and he later added another touchdown late on a vintage pass to Rob Gronkowski ($4,700; 13.1 DKFP).
In the third quarter in Detroit, the Lions got the third passing touchdown of the day from Matthew Stafford ($5,800; 23.04 DKFP) when he connected with D’Andre Swift ($5,100; 25.9 DKFP) for a 15-yard score to go up, 24-3. Washington continued to center their offense on J.D. McKissic ($4,900; 17.9 DKFP), who scored a touchdown to cut the lead to 24-10 late in the third. Antonio Gibson ($5,600; 22.5 DKFP) followed that with a pair of rushing touchdowns of his own as Washington stormed back to tie the game at 24-24. Matt Prater knocked through a 37-yard field goal with 2:42 left, and then he kicked a 59-yarder as time expired to give the Lions the 30-27 win.
1 p.m. ET games — First Half
The first touchdown of the early games came from a surprising source as the Giants jumped out to a 7-0 lead on a 34-yard run by Daniel Jones ($5,200) in the highlight below. After an Eagles field goal, the Giants got another rushing score, this time from Wayne Gallman Jr. ($4,500). The Giants stopped Carson Wentz ($5,900) on fourth down late in the second quarter and led 14-3 at halftime.
Matthew Stafford ($5,800) and the Lions didn’t wait around long either before jumping on Washington with the 55-yard touchdown pass in the highlight below to Marvin Hall ($3,500). He later hit Marvin Jones Jr. ($5,200) for a score, and the Lions cruised to a 17-3 lead at halftime.
Following a Tampa Bay fumble on their opening drive, the Panthers got out to an early lead in their divisional matchup with a touchdown pass from Teddy Bridgewater ($6,100) to Colin Thompson ($2,500). Brady answered back, though, with a five-yard strike to Cameron Brate ($2,500) to even the score. The Panthers came right back with another touchdown from Bridgewater, who connected on a long pass to D.J. Moore ($5,100) and later found him for a touchdown to cap off that same drive in the highlight below. Brady still had time for one more drive before halftime, though, and hit Mike Evans ($6,300) to tie the game up at 17-17.

In cold and windy Green Bay, the Jaguars took an early lead on the Packers with a field goal. The Packers finally got going, though, with the 78-yard touchdown bomb to Marquez Valdes-Scantling ($4,400) in the highlight below. The Jags retook the lead, though, on a 91-yard punt return touchdown from Keelan Cole ($3,400), which was the longest punt return in franchise history. Aaron Rodgers ($7,900) wasn’t OK with his team trailing at halftime and he took matters into his own hands with a five-yard rushing touchdown to put the Packers up 14-10. A field goal extended the Green Bay lead to 17-10 at the midway point.

After a weather delay in Cleveland due to thunderstorms in the area, the Browns took a lead with a field goal in the first quarter. Myles Garrett had a big stop against Deshaun Watson ($6,900) on fourth-and-goal in a low-scoring first half.
