This Sunday was one of the best sports days I can remember. Of course, I was playing in a softball tournament for the first half of it, so I didn’t get to enjoy the first half of it. Football all day, and baseball all night!
Josh McCown (NYJ) - 18.2 points
He just keeps putting up numbers. McC ended as the 4th QB this week. He’s really not THIS good, but, as fantasy players, we don’t care how good you are, as long as you’re throwing. Someone forgot to tell Josh the Jets are tanking.
FN Advice: Streaming option only
Alex Collins (Bal) - 14.3 points
Collins was going to have to produce this game if he was going to ever really get a chance. TNF and against a run defense that could be beat. He did just that, produce. 113 on the ground was nice to see. Expect a TD soon. I wonder if the Seahawks could use a RB like Collins...
FN Advice: Should be added everywhere. He is the best back in Baltimore
JuJu Smith-Schuster (Pit) - 25.3 points
This one hurts my soul a little bit. Detroit had the Steelers pinned back and it was 3rd down. JuJU then went 97 yards. Very sad day for me, great for fantasy (I did have in a couple places). JuJu ended with almost 200 yards and a score, well done for a guy that is, self proclaimed, slow!
FN Advice: JuJu is a solid flex consideration every week
Jack Doyle (Ind) - 18.1 points
Doyle was a thing going into drafts, then he wasn’t, now he is again. Brissett has been looking Doyle’s way in a big way lately. 12 for 121 and a TD is just the latest maturation of that
FN Advice: Doyle is a low end TE1
We survived one bye, bye, bye week, lets hope to survive another.
