Aaron Rodgers, QB, GB

429 passing yards, 5 passing TDs, 6 rushing yards, 1 TD, 43.7 points.

Had as many incompletions against the Raiders as TDs he accounted for.

Chase Edmonds, RB, ARI

126 rushing yards, 24 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 34 points.

Took advantage of this huge opportunity with David Johnson mostly sidelined.

Latavius Murray, RB, NO

119 rushing yards, 31 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 29.5 points.

Another back that jumped on a big chance, Murray shone while Alvin Kamara was injured.

Marvin Jones Jr., WR, DET

93 receiving yards, 4 TDs, 38.3 points.

Became one of just three players in NFL history to score four TDs in two separate games after doing so in 2013.

Zach Pascal, WR, IND

106 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 25.6 points.

The sophomore stepped into the starting role and had his first career two-TD game.

Darren Waller, TE, OAK

126 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 25.6 points.

Fresh off signing a huge contract extension, Waller proved he is well worth the money.

Los Angeles Rams DEF

10 points allowed, 5 sacks, 1 INT, 2 fumbles recovered, 1 TD, 21 points.

Took care of an Atlanta offence that lost Matt Ryan and Devonta Freeman.

Greg Zuerlein, K, LAR

3 FGs, 4 PATs, 15 points.



Kyler Murray, QB, ARI

104 passing yards, 28 rushing yards, 6.9 points.

The Cards may have won the game, but Murray had his worst statistical game as a pro.

Matt Ryan, QB, ATL

159 passing yards, 1 INT, 2 rushing yards, 1 fumble recovery, 3.5 points.

Left the game with an ankle injury in the fourth quarter, but was also ineffective before that.

David Johnson, RB, ARI

2 rushing yards, 0.2 points.

Started the game, but had just one carry before hitting the sidelines.

Devonta Freeman, RB, ATL

19 rushing yards, 6 receiving yards, 3.5 points.

His day ended early after getting tossed for throwing a punch at Aaron Donald.

Kerryon Johnson, RB, DET

23 rushing yards, 2.3 points.

Had just five carries before leaving the game with a knee injury.

David Montgomery, RB, CHI

6 rushing yards, 13 receiving yards, 1 fumble lost, 0.9 points.

The Bears offence as a whole struggled all day.

Evan Engram, TE, NYG

6 receiving yards, 1.1 points.

Had just one catch on his five targets.



It looks like Ryan Fitzpatrick still has a bit of fantasy Fitzmagic left in him. Getting the start in Buffalo for the lowly Dolphins, the ex-Bills QB had a surprisingly good game against one of the league’s best pass defences, scoring 21.5 points.

With just 16.1 fantasy points coming into this week’s game, Alex Erickson exploded for 17.5 against the Jaguars. The Bengals WR had 14 targets, which is one off his season total, and a career-high eight catches for 137 yards.
