Josh Freeman: 420 pass yds, 3 pass TDs, 9 rush yds
Since the Bucs’ Week 5 bye, he has 748 yards, 6 TDs, and one pick. Suddenly he’s a borderline fantasy starter.
Drew Brees: 377 pass yds, 4 pass TDs, INT, 1 rush yd and Aaron Rodgers: 342 pass yds, 3 pass TDs
The top two QBs in the NFL played like the top two QBs in the NFL on Sunday. Brees is averaging an insane 349.5 yards per game and Rodgers has a league-leading 19 touchdowns.
Andy Dalton: 105 pass yds, pass TD, INT, -1 rush yds
One week after putting up 381 yards and tossing 3 TDs against the Browns, we learned that we can only expect those types of numbers from Dalton when he is, in fact, playing the Browns.
Joe Flacco: 147 pass yds, pass TD, 2 INTs, 7 rush yds
With the Ravens’ defense decimated by injuries it’s up to their offense to carry the team. That’s not going to happen.
Chris Johnson: 195 rush yds, 2 rush TDs, 3 rec yds
How do you feel if you traded CJ2K two weeks ago? (This question is being directed towards you, Dan in my fantasy football league.)
LaRod Stephens-Howling: 104 rush yds, rush TD, 45 rec yds
Law Firm 2.0 looked better than the original Law Firm on Sunday. (LaRod, Stephens & Howling sounds like a law firm-- that's how I came up with this. Boy, am I clever!)
Arian Foster: 98 rush yds, 2 rush TDs, 5 rec yds
One of the few top RBs who hasn’t disappointed this season; Foster leads the league in rushing attempts (168), yards (659), and TDs (9).
Maurice Jones-Drew: 6 rush yds
And you thought the Jaguars couldn’t get any worse. Bye, MJD. You will be missed by Jags' fans and your fantasy owners.
Trent Richardson: 8 rush yds, 11 rec yds
This is what you get for drafting running backs that are on awful, awful, awful teams. (That’s three “awfuls”, not even just two!)
Ray Rice: 42 rush yds, 12 rec yds
See: Joe Flacco analysis above. Actually, that’s not fair. Ray Rice is roughly one million times better than Joe Flacco. Still, he’s underperforming fantasy-wise.
Vincent Jackson: 216 rec yds, rec TD
Who would’ve guessed that Freeman to Jackson would be better than Stafford to Megatron and Cam Newton to Steve Smith?
Randall Cobb: 89 rec yds, 2 rec TDs, 19 rush yds, 38 return yds
Cobb? James Jones? Jordy Nelson? I trust the interactive spinner when predicting which Packers’ receiver will have the best game on any given week.
Larry Fitzgerald: 29 rec yds
Sure, he doesn’t have a real quarterback throwing him the ball, but what a huge disappointment. Fitzy ranks 16th in receiving yards and has just three touchdowns.
Calvin Johnson: 34 rec yds
How does someone whose nickname is Megatron get dominated by someone whose nickname is Peanut?
Rob Gronkowski: 78 rec yds, 2 rec TDs
It’s hit or miss for Gronk so far this season.
Vernon Davis: 0 and Kyle Rudolph: 0
The “Fantasy Zero Award” for Week 7 goes to Davis and Rudolph. It takes a special kind of player to get you absolutely zero points.
Nick Folk: 1/1 FG 20-29 yds, 2/2 FG 40-49 yds, 1/1 FG 50+, 2/2 XP
He was money against the Pats. Too bad he can't play quarterback.
Jason Hanson: 1/1 XP
Somewhere out there, there’s someone who needed one point from Hanson in Monday night’s game to win his or her matchup. That someone is very lucky indeed. Everyone else who owns Hanson is less pleased.
