After many weeks of utter disappointment, it was finally Calvin Ridley‘s time to shine, as he collected his best game yet with over 100 yards receiving and two touchdowns. He also threw in a free gift – 18 yards on the ground. I was hesitant to start him anywhere until I read this week’s Educated Bets article by our own Brett Ford, and I was rewarded for firing him up in all formats yesterday. I hope you were too. (Side note – Brett went 7-1 with his picks this week. Check out next week’s piece on Sunday morning!)
Three of the top four scoring QBs this week were Trevor Lawrence, Brock Purdy, and Tommy DeVito. Yes, you read that right – Mr. DeVito threw for three touchdowns en route to an upset win over the Commanders. Two of those TD tosses went to none other than Saquon Barkley, who actually didn’t have a single rushing yard until the second to last play of the 3rd quarter. He’d end up with 86 yards on the ground thanks in large part to runs of 36 and 31 yards in just over a quarter of play.
Tank Dell and Jaylen Warren continue to look like league winners for anyone who took a shot at them late in drafts or in free agency early this year. Warren scored on a 74 yard run at the beginning of the second half, while Dell continued his run of double digit targets for the third straight week. He capitalized on those opportunities with over 140 yards and a score in yet another winning effort for Houston.
And, right up there at the top of the week’s scoring with all of these guys, is Tyreek Hill as you can imagine. The dude is just so freaking good.
