What a weird day for fantasy football. The leading two scorers in PPR were, of course, rookies from the Texans, with C.J. Stroud throwing five touchdowns and Tank Dell catching two of them. Stroud also helped Dalton Schultz light up the scoreboard as the TE1, scoring a whopping 29 points in Kelce-esque fashion. But then, there were the likes of Noah Brown (Texans), Josh Dobbs (Vikings), Jonnu Smith (Falcons), and Keaton Mitchell (Ravens) who all put up stellar days to lead
your fantasy team to victory nobody’s teams to anything as they all sat on the waiver wire. Huh?!?!?!
That’s not to say there weren’t great performances by the usual suspects. The Dak Prescott/CeeDee Lamb tandem hit in a big way, Jalen Hurts, Joe Burrow, and Josh Allen all put up respectable days, and Rhamondre Stevenson finally found his way thanks to a 64 yard touchdown run. Oh, and Tee Higgins finally returned to WR1 status. Welcome back, Tee!
There were, of course, some duds. The Germany game between Kansas City and Miami, where plenty of points were promised, ended up being a defensive showcase, and the likes of Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, Isiah Pacheco, and even Travis Kelce all scored under 13 fantasy points apiece. With Matthew Stafford out, Puka Nacua and Cooper Kupp scored single digit fantasy points for the second week in a row. Chris Godwin was outscored by both Miles Sanders and Tyler Allgeier, as well as JuJu Smith-Schuster and DJ Chark Jr.. Really, it was just an all around strange week.
