Fantasy Recap – Week 14

Embed from Getty Images

Welcome to the fantasy recap. If it wasn’t already, it’s fantasy playoff time and the end of bye weeks so plenty to celebrate if you’re still in your leagues. There’s also a lot to be anxious about with line-up decisions and injuries likely to become a big topic this week. Apologies for this being late and a bit quick, as some of you may know, I play in 40+ leagues and things are getting critical.

NB: Scores based on PPR leagues

Fantasy Stars:

QB: Trevor Lawrence (JAX) – 30cmp/368yds/3td/0int + 3rsh/7yds/1td = 33pts

I’d say Lawrence has officially arrived now.

Other star QBs: J.Hurts (30), J.Goff (26).

RB: Jerrick McKinnon (KC) – 6rsh/22yds + 7rec/112yds/2tds = 32pts

Maybe RBs should start being called “narrow receivers”.

Other star RBs: CMC/M.Sanders (29), A.Ekeler (24).

WR: Jerry Jeudy (DEN) – 8rec/73yds/3tds = 33pts

Remove Sutton from the equation and suddenly there’s clarity.

Other star WRs: J.Jefferson (33), J.Chase (29), T.Hill/M.Williams (24).

TE: Evan Engram (JAX) – 11rec/162yds/2td = 39pts

Erm… wow. Skipped surprise package and just gone straight here. Top score on the week.

Other Star TE’s: D.Njoku (19), D.Schultz (15).

Surprise Packages:

Russell Wilson (DEN) – 23cmp/247yds/3td/0int + 4rsh/57yds = 27pts

For once, Russ cooked.

Other surprise QBs: B.Purdy (22).

Chuba Hubbard (CAR) – 14rsh/74yds/1td + 3rec/25yds = 19pts

How to make a backfield interesting and annoying in equal measure.

Other surprise RBs: P.Strong (17), M.Mack (16).

Chris Moore (HOU) – 10rec/124yds/0td = 22pts

When you’re the next man up, you’re the next man up, no matter how bad the team is.

Other surprise WRs: Z.Jones (22), D.Chark (21), M.Goodwin (20).  

Chigoziem Okonkwo (TEN) – 6rec/45yds/1td = 19pts

Repeats in this position after going beyond what happened last week.  

Other surprise TEs: A.Hooper (12).

Derek Carr (LV) – 11cmp/137yds/2int + 4rsh/11yds = 5pts

The Carr didn’t get going.

Other disappointing QB’s: M.Jones (7).

Travis Etienne (JAX) – 17rsh/32yds = 3pts

Plenty of work, but no output, which was the opposite of the rest of his team.

Other disappointing RB’s: J.Williams (4), D.Singletary (5).

Jaylen Waddle (MIA) – 2rec/31yds = 5pts

A weird off day for Miami and Waddle in particular.

Other disappointing WR’s: G.Davis (6), S.Diggs (7).

Noah Fant (SEA) – 0rec/0yds = 0pts

Knox was locked down against the Patriots but you could argue they didn’t need him.

Other disappointing TE’s: M.Gesicki/F.Moreau(0); M.Andrews(4).
