Match-up Highlights:

Knuttsach Jones v.s. Mud Dogs

139.04-170.14

Top Players for Michael

  • Ezekiel Elliott - 26.40
  • Adam Thielen - 20.80
  • Case Keenum - 18.52

Bad Moves

  • I made all the best moves and still couldn’t prevail over the ever-consuming power of Richard and his Mud Dogs :(

Top Players for Richard

  • Russell Wilson - 36.08
  • Paul Richardson - 28.50
  • Deandre Washington - 20.80

Bad Moves

  • Richard beat me thoroughly and he probably really enjoyed it. Let’s just move on from this match-up.....

Backroad Bullies v.s. Cry Me a Rivers

121.38 - 71.24

Top Players for Derrick

  • Juju Smith-Schuster - 32.30
  • Zach Ertz - 13.40
  • Alex Smith - 13.38

Bad Moves

  • Mohammed Sanu put up a healthy score of 19.40 this past week. Unfortunately, Derrick chose to play Danny Amendola instead and was rewarded with only 3.40 points.

Top Players for Aaron

  • Jordan Howard - 15.10
  • Kyle Rudolph - 14.70
  • Joe Mixon - 11.90

Bad Moves

  • Jack Doyle had an extremely efficient week in fantasy as he caught 12 balls and a score to put up 30.10 points. Aaron chose to go with Cameron Brate, however, and missed out on all those points.

Trips Right v.s. Azor Ajayi

106.64 - 109.48

Top Players for Ruben

  • Jimmy Graham - 19.90
  • Harrison Butker - 21.00
  • Cam Newton - 13.56

Bad Moves

  • The Gawd, Deshaun Watson, was left on the bench while he exploded for 35.78 points against the Seahawks. Instead, Cam Newton got the start and put up a measly 13.56 points. Bummer, Dude.

Top Players for Daniel

  • Melvin Gordon - 20.90
  • Travis Kelce - 26.30
  • Alvin Kamara - 16.60

Bad Moves

  • For some reason, Willie Snead was in the starting lineup and he didn’t even step on the field this week. Jameson Crowder, on the other hand, scored 22.50 points while on the bench. C’mon, Daniel.

No Punt Intended v.s. Sam Kweon’s Tweets!

147.26 - 166.14

Top Players for Cody

  • Philadelphia Defense - 20.00
  • Travis Benjamin - 18.80
  • Carson Wentz - 18.14

Bad Moves

  • Golden Tate outperformed Brandin Cooks by a fair amount as the latter was outperformed 13.60-7.60.

Top Players for Lou

  • Jerick McKinnon - 26.20
  • Deandre Hopkins - 36.40
  • Mark Ingram - 17.90

Bad Moves

  • Marvin Jones Sr. had himself a game with 18.80 while on the bench. Although Lou didn’t need it, he would have gotten a chunk of points if he chose to start Jones over Chris Hogan, who scored 11.08 points.

Go Bears! v.s. Free OJ with Brunch

108.18 - 121.34

Top Players for Max

  • Robbie Anderson - 22.50
  • Kelvin Benjamin - 12.90
  • CJ Beathard - 12.68

Bad Moves

  • Max made all the right decisions in this match-up. Unfortunately, he still didn’t stand a chance this week.

Top Players for Roger

  • Josh McCown - 18.28
  • Rob Gronkowski - 16.70
  • Carolina Defense - 16.00

Bad Moves

  • Roger also made all the right moves and it led him straight to victory this week.

Chargers_UK v.s. Sans Diego

79.10 - 141.54

Top Players for Thomas

  • Thomas still hasn’t set a legitimate lineup and I’ts getting a little frustrating trying to make his match-up any sort of interesting. He sucks. SET YOUR DAMN LINEUP, THOMAS.

Bad Moves

  • They’ve all been bad moves. All of them.

Top Players for Sans Diego

  • Baltimore Defense - 29.00
  • LeSean McCoy - 29.30
  • Andy Dalton - 18.72

Bad Moves

  • Does it even matter what you do when you play Thomas? It’s an automatic win.
