Tua Tagovailoa, QB, MIA

291 passing yards, 4 TDs, 2 interceptions, 29 rushing yards, 28.5 points.

His two interceptions were pretty poor, but at least his fantasy score didn’t weigh much.

Andre Swift, RB, DET

48 rushing yards, 96 receiving yards, 1 TD, 24.4 points.

His 63-yard touchdown reception got the Lions going, but they couldn’t hold out in Los Angeles.

Damien Harris, RB, NE

106 rushing yards, 7 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 24.3 points.

He collected his third 100-yard game of the season and his biggest fantasy production of the year.

Cooper Kupp, WR, LAR

156 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 32.6 points.

Just another incredible outing from the best catcher in the NFL – his fifth game with 20+ fantasy points this season.

Ja’Marr Chase, WR, CIN

201 yards received, 1 TD, 30.1 points.

Became 10 th rookie to record a 200-yard receiving game in NFL history.

CJ Uzomah, TE, CIN

91 yards received, 2 TDs, 22.6 points.

He now has five TDs in the last four games and two games with more than 22 fantasy points.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DEF

3 points allowed, 4 sacks, 3 interceptions, 2 fumbles recovered, 21 points.

He absolutely shut down Justin Fields and the Bears offense.

Graham Gano, K, New York

3 FG, 2 PAT, 15 points.


Patrick Mahomes, quarterback, KC

206 yards through the air, 1 INT, 35 yards rushing, 1 fumble, 8.7 points.

Two more turnovers put him at 10 for the season and he took a nasty blow late in the game.

Justin Fields, QB, CHI

184 yards through the air, 3 interceptions, 38 yards rushing, 2 turnovers, 4.1 points.

The rookie had five turnovers in the worst start of his young career.

Sam Darnold, QB, CAR

111 passing yards, 1 INT, 3.4 points.

Another very poor performance saw the ex-Jet being benched in the second half.

Damien Williams, RB, CHI

5 rushing yards, 3 receiving yards, 1.3 points.

He got off the COVID list, but had only four touches in Khalil Herbert’s 23.

Mike Davis, RB, ATL

10 rushing yards, 1 point.

He had only four touches and is now clearly behind Cordarrelle Patterson on the depth chart.

Julio Jones, WR, TEN

38 yards received, 4.8 points.

His four targets were second on the team behind AJ Brown, but he only caught two of them.

Allen Robinson II, WR, CHI

16 receiving yards, 2.6 points.

If you can trade A-Rob for something of value, you should probably look into it.

I hope you start

If you’ve played fantasy football before, chances are you’ve been burned by a Patriots running back at some point. However, this week, you can’t go wrong with one. JJ Taylor scored 15.1 points from two TDs at the goal line, Brandon Bolden had 16.9 points from six catches and Damien Harris led the way with 24.3 points. That three RBs of a team accumulate 56 points in total in a week is something special.

New England didn’t just do it on the ground, either. Quarterback Mac Jones had his first 300-yard game of his career and scored 22.1 fantasy points, which is his best performance of the season and probably helped a manager through this difficult week to rest.
