Ko Kieft. Anthony Schwartz. Mycole Pruitt. John Bates. Durham Smythe. Josh Oliver. Peyton Hendershot.
Who are these guys? They’re the fantasy-irrelevant Tight Ends who vultured TDs from us in a week that seemed like it was all no-name guys or deep dynasty roster fillers who were finding the end zone. Did anyone start Quez Watkins, Jauan Jennings, Van Jefferson, Jamal Agnew, Marvin Jones Jr., Brandon Johnson, Byron Pringle, or Richie James. No? Sheesh.
Despite all of that, Josh Jacobs delivered for fantasy managers and Raiders fans alike in the most spectacular way possible, a 50-burger with over 300 total yards from scrimmage after an 86 yard scamper to win it in OT. And yet, nobody got to see it thanks to CBS staying on 60 Minutes despite the NFL’s own Red Zone program telling viewers to tune into the network that’s home to some of television’s greatest shows such as CSI: Las Vegas and CSI: Los Angeles, not to mention NCIS and NCIS: Hawaii. No, instead of watching one of the most incredible endings to a game this season, we got to see a segment about puppies. Which, honestly, wasn’t all that bad.
“It looks like dog puppies come into the world kind of prepared to understand us in a way that wolf puppies are not because of domestication and interacting with us,” evolutionary biologist Brian Hare tells @andersoncooper. https://t.co/EWCkZydFtJ pic.twitter.com/omARRZ6pLy
