Match-up Highlights:

Knuttsach Jones v.s. Go Bears!
130.24 - 156.26

Top Players for Michael

  • Le’Veon Bell - 28.30
  • Case Keenum - 27.28
  • Nelson Agholor - 18.20

Bad Moves

  • I could have thrown Carr in over Prescott, but that really wouldn’t have done much for my chances to win. It was another bad week for Knuttsach Jones. 5 losses in a row and counting.

Top Players for Max

  • Robby Anderson - 32.60
  • Keenan Allen - 34.20
  • Jared Goff - 20.86

Bad Moves

  • Max trusted all of his former Golden Bear players and they gave it to me. My fifth straight loss, that is.

Mud Dogs v.s. Backroad Bullies
121.56 - 116.46

Top Players for Richard

  • Russell Wilson - 24.62
  • Alshon Jeffrey - 16.20
  • Frank Gore - 15.90

Bad Moves

  • Richard keeps Richard-ing. All the right calls here.

Top Players for Derrick

  • Antonio Brown - 40.90
  • Zach Ertz - 26.30
  • Alex Smith - 14.46

Bad Moves

  • I mean, this isn’t the worst decision by any means. Amendola could always go off with Tom Brady as his quarterback. And who could have guessed Mohammed Sanu would chuck a 55-yard touchdown to Julio Jones? I sure would not have guessed that.

Trips Right v.s. Sans Diego
129.48 - 124.96

Top Players for Ruben

  • Cooper Kupp - 19.60
  • Philip Rivers - 28.86
  • LAC Defense - 19.00

Bad Moves

  • I’m not sure why anyone would start a quarterback with zero wide receivers at his disposal over a former MVP but that’s just what Ruben did. Eli Manning scored 3.42 points while Cam Newton scored 17.52 on the bench. C’mon, man.

Top Players for Jason

  • Sammy Watkins - 18.20
  • Andy Dalton - 19.16
  • Todd Gurley - 16.80

Bad Moves

  • Although it was a smart play before the Redskins game, Vernon Davis ended up recording zero catches and leaving a fat 0 in the points column. Delanie Walker, however, had himself a game, including a touchdown catch. Walker outscored Davis 16.30 to 0.00.

No Punt Intended v.s. Chargers_UK
185.64 - 72.70

Top Players for Cody

  • Julio Jones - 50.90
  • Carson Wentz - 23.98
  • Brandin Cooks - 21.40

Bad Moves

  • This is probably one of the only times you will read a sentence like this but....Blake Bortles outscored Marcus Mariota 23.60 to 9.76 this week. Blake was justifiably not started and Mariota was. You can’t fault Cody for this one.

Top Players for Thomas

  • Davante Adams - 19.20
  • Jamaal Williams - 29.50
  • Demarco Murray - 13.20

Bad Moves

  • HARD PASS

Sam Kweon’s Tweets! v.s. Cry Me a Rivers
129.56 - 80.10

Top Players for Lou

  • Marvin Jones Jr. - 28.90
  • Tom Brady - 21.68
  • DeAndre Hopkins - 19.50

Bad Moves

  • Samaje Perine ran for over 100+ yards in his second straight game and finished with an even 16.00 points. However, he was benched in favor of Jerick McKinnon who finished the week with just 6.40.

Top Players for Aaron

  • Devin Funchess - 17.80
  • Jack Doyle - 16.40
  • Matthew Stafford - 15.00

Bad Moves

  • This one is a head-scratcher. Joe Mixon is a starting running back who can hurt you on the ground and through the air. Jay Cutler is....Jay Cutler. In fact, Cutler didn’t even play this week while Mixon had his best week as a pro. So Aaron got to watch Mixon put up 25.50 points on his bench while getting a goose egg from Cutler.

Azor Ajayi v.s. Free OJ with Brunch
184.14 - 133.18

Top Players for Daniel

  • Ben Roethlisberger - 32.54
  • Jamison Crowder - 27.10
  • Alvin Kamara - 36.80

Bad Moves

  • Usually, Stills is the receiver to expect big days from over Cobb these days. This week, Cobb stacked up 15.80 points while riding the pine. On the other hand, Stills was started and put up just 7.70.

Top Players for Roger

  • Rob Gronkowski - 25.20
  • Rex Burkhead - 19.30
  • Matt Ryan - 16.78

Bad Moves

  • Not sure of the thought process behind this decision, but Carolina’s defense put up a solid 17.00 points on the bench while Cincy’s D struggled with just 5.00 as the starter.
