We normally reserve the featured image for our What We Saw articles for one of the top fantasy scorers of the week, but we couldn’t help but give it to Jakobi Meyers this week after he scored his first career touchdown reception. It was a long time coming for Meyers, as it took until midway through his third season for the impossible to finally happen.
Finally! #Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers just caught his first career NFL touchdown. Coming into today, Meyers had the most receptions (134) and receiving yards (1,500+) for a WR in NFL history without a TD catch.
He even threw *two* TD passes before ever catching one.

Congratulations, Jakobi! Hopefully this is the first of many more for you and anyone who rosters you in fantasy.
Elsewhere around the league, there were blowouts and bad games galore. Cam Newton‘s return to Carolina at least made the beginning of that one interesting, but Arizona got their doors blown off and they desperately need Kyler Murray back ASAP. The Cowboys showed up in a big way and dominated Atlanta all day long. Buffalo bounced back from their shocking loss to Jacksonville with a dominant performance against the Jets. Oh, and we also had a tie in Pittsburgh! That’s always fun to see on the playoff picture graphics.
