Despite the loss, Jaylen Waddle stepped up big time and had his best game as a professional. His thirteen targets easily led the team and his two touchdowns helped keep Miami in what ended up being a close game in London. Sure, Miami was with a few of their biggest targets (DeVante Parker, Will Fuller, Preston Williams), but Waddle was built to shine in this offense and it’s no secret that Tua Tagovailoa is starting to depend on him every week. In PPR formats, Waddle could develop into a monster sooner than later.
The Houston Texans’ defense isn’t very good, and they had a tough go of it against the Indianapolis offense led by Carson Wentz and Jonathan Taylor. Taylor once again had a field day, his second big week in a row and those of us who drafted him early are collectively breathing a sigh of relief. This game also saw the return of T.Y. Hilton, though he would later leave the game with another injury in a sad turn of events for the former stud WR. The Colts are more fun when Hilton is on the field, so hopefully he’s able to return soon.
Yesterday’s marquee game between the Cowboys and Patriots lived up to all expectations, and CeeDee Lamb fed on a depleted New England secondary. Dak Prescott threw for over 400 yards and three TDs, but it was his QB sneak at the goal line that appeared to be the touchdown that wasn’t that sort of defined his day. Yes, he pushed the ball all day and made some spectacular throws when Dallas needed them most, but many are likely coming away from this one thinking he should have had a bigger day from a fantasy perspective. They’re probably right.
