Welcome to the fantasy recap. Don’t call it a comeback? I’m not actually sure you can call the antics of week 15 anything other than a comeback. Crazy ending and some fantasy games may well have been unhinged by everything going on. The fantasy season may almost be over but for those with Semi Finals and Finals on the line, let’s get you over the line.

NB: Scores based on PPR leagues

Fantasy Stars:

QB: Kirk Cousins (MIN) – 34cmp/460yds/4td/2int + 2rsh/0yds = 34pts

What makes this all the more impressive is he essentially did this in the 2nd half and OT.

Other star QBs: J.Hurts (37), J.Allen (34), P.Mahomes (32).

RB: Jerrick McKinnon (KC) – 10rsh/52yds/1td + 8rec/70yds/1td = 34pts

McKinnon top scored again and did work on the ground and in the air. Who remembers who Clyde Edwards Helaire is?

Other star RBs: D.Cook/CMC (26), D.Henry/D.Stevenson (25).

WR: Zay Jones (JAX) – 6rec/109yds/3tds = 35pts

Unforgettable. That what they Zay…

Other star WRs: J.Jefferson (30), AJ.Brown (27), T.Hill/C.Godwin (22).

TE: George Kittle (SF) – 4rec/93yds/2td = 25pts

When he’s healthy, involved and in this case wide open, he’s a monster scorer.

Other Star TE’s: D.Knox (22), T.Kelce (21).

Surprise Packages:

Zach Wilson (DEN) – 18cmp/317yds/2td/1int + 3rsh/7yds = 20pts

Back from the doghouse and scored well but it was against the Lions.

Other surprise QBs: D.Carr (19), D.Mills (18).

Tyler Allgeier (ATL) – 17rsh/139yds/1td + 1rec/-3yds = 23pts

We’ve got to work out how to pronounce his name correctly now don’t we? He’s taken over.

Other surprise RBs: M.Mack (16), J.Warren (12).

KJ Osborn (MIN) – 10rec/157yds/1td = 32pts

This maybe sums up the phrase “Necessity is the mother of invention”. Which applies to a lot of surprise WRs this week.

Other surprise WRs: R.Gage (26), N.Brown (23), J.Dotson (21).  

Juwan Johnson (NO) – 4rec/93yds/2td = 25pts

A New Orleans Tight End scoring mega points without rushing or throwing the ball.

Other surprise TEs: C.Uzomah (18).

Baker Mayfield (LV) – 12cmp/111yds/1int + 1rsh/1yds = 7pts

After being a hero, he came back to being Baker Mayfield.

Other disappointing QB’s: M.Jones (7), D.Ridder (8), D.Jones (10).

D’Onta Foreman (CAR) – 10rsh/9yds/1fum = 0pts

Technically -0.1. Ooof.

Other disappointing RB’s: M.Sanders (1), J.Williams (3).

Michael Gallup (DAL) – 1rec/2yds = 1pts

A potential waiver wire saviour turned into a week loser.

Other disappointing WR’s: A.Lazard (2), J.Meyers/B.Aiyuk (4).

Greg Dulcich (DEN) – 1rec/11yds = 2pts

So much more was expected. Defines Denver in general.

Other disappointing TE’s: M.Gesicki (0); D.Schultz (4).
