Welcome to your Week 4 edition of Champs and Chumps! If you want a list of average fantasy football players from this past week you best look elsewhere.
The three best QBs in the NFL finally had a week where the performed like the three best QBs in the NFL.
Tom Brady: 340 pass yds, 3 pass TDs, 4 rush yds, rush TD
Aaron Rodgers: 319 pass yds, 4 pass TDs, INT, 13 rush yds
Drew Brees: 446 pass yds, 3 pass TDs
Wait a minute! Tim Tebow’s not on this list!
Tony Romo: 307 pass yds, pass TD, 5 INTs
You have to work hard to pass for 307 yards and still be a chump.
Russell Wilson: 160 pass yds, 3 INTs, 14 rush yds
Russell Wilson passed for a career-high 160 yards on Sunday. He’s not fantasy backup worthy.
Mark Sanchez: 103 pass yds, INT, fumble lost
There’s no way you started him this week, but he was such a stinker that he earned a spot as one of this week’s chumps. A well-trained chimpanzee could’ve played better.
Carson Palmer: 202 pass yds
He won’t do much worse when he plays “Bye” this weekend.
Michael Turner: 103 rush yds, 68 rec yds, rec TD
“If you start Michael Turner, you should have you’re brain examined… Never start him again.”- The Bonch, last week on The Jeff & The Bonch Show
Stevan Ridley: 106 rush yds, 2 rush TDs
It was Patriots’ Running Back Day in Buffalo.
Brandon Bolden: 137 rush yds, rush TD, 11 rec yds
It’s not “bold” to say he’s a great waiver wire pickup. (See what I did there?)
Shonn Greene: 34 rush yds
Sigh. Don’t even bother trying to trade him; just drop him.
Darren McFadden: 34 rush yds, 4 rec yds
That’s three games so far this year in which he’s averaged less than 3 yards per carry.
Ahmad Bradshaw: 39 rush yds, 38 rec yds
He’s a flex player, nothing more.
Roddy White: 169 rec yds, 2 rec TDs
Is he still the top fantasy receiver on the Falcons? He played like he was against the Panthers.
Marques Colston: 153 rec yds, rec TD
It’s a great week to trade Colston before he goes back to having 50 yard, no touchdown games.
Brian Hartline: 253 rec yds, rec TD
Who leads the NFL in receiving yards? (That’s right!)
Julio Jones: 30 rec yds
Insert sad face emoticon.
Jeremy Maclin: 7 rec yds
He had roughly 1/36th as many receiving yards as Brian Hartline.
Santonio Holmes: 29 rec yds, fumble lost
News Alert: Drop all Jets from your fantasy team!
Scott Chandler: 62 rec yds, 2 rec TDs
They call him Scott “Touchdown” Chandler. (Not really though.)
Rob Gronkowski: 104 rec yds, rec TD, fumble lost
Looks like someone took offense to being deemed a chump last week.
Martellus Bennett: 2 rec yds
The Giants’ receiving situation is too confusing for my simple mind.
Vernon Davis: 28 rec yds
Not what you’d expect when you hear the 49ers scored 34 points.
Greg Zuerlein: 1/1 20-29 yds, 1/1 40-49 yds, 2-2 50+ yds, 1/1 XP
Greg the Leg is 12/12 this year, including three field goals over 50 yards.
Nick Folk: 0
He didn’t even attempt a field goal. We’ll just give him a zero.
