This article is purely for me, as well as you, to enjoy the many wonders that Fantasy Football gives us. I am partly celebrating my first championship berth in a fantasy football league and I figured since a major population of people enjoy Fantasy Football, you would enjoy this article as much as I am writing it.
These players were the top fantasy performers at their positions. These scores are based off of a standard ESPN Fantasy Football scoring system. The FLEX position is simply decided by the best scorer that either wasn’t a top two WR, RB, or the best TE. Even though the chances of this team existing is slim, if you owned this team your match up in Fantasy would be very favorable to you. So just sit back and enjoy this article!
QB: Cam Newton, 41 points- Newton totaled 40+ fantasy points for the first time this season and he did so in a big way. He threw for 340 yards and 5 passing touchdowns. Newton also added 100 rushing yards on 8 attempts. It was his first 100 yard rushing game of the season as well.
RB: David Johnson, 40 points- Johnson broke the 40 point mark for the first time as well this season. He had a total of 33 touches on Sunday for 229 yards. He rushed the ball 29 times for 187 yards and added on 4 receptions for 42 yards. A career day for sure for Johnson who amassed 3 rushing touchdowns.
RB: Danny Woodhead, 30 points- A dual threat running back, Woodhead totaled 4 touchdowns on the day. He rushed the ball 8 times for 10 yards but scored once on the ground. Through the air, he had 6 receptions for 50 yards and 3 touchdowns. Woodhead now has 9 total touchdowns this season.
WR: Antonio Brown, 30 points- Always a threat in any format,Brown amassed 16 receptions, boasting 189 receiving yards on the day. He would also add on 2 touchdowns on the day. If I had done this type of article regularly, Brown would land in it more than most players.
WR: Emmanuel Sanders, 26 points- The speedy receiver finally broke loose this season. He had his first double digit receptions game of the year and put those receptions to good use. He had 181 receiving yards and caught his fifth touchdown of the season. He also displayed his rushing skills on Sunday with a 24 yard rush.
TE: Jordan Reed, 20 points- Plagued by an injury earlier this year, Reed returned to his normal form on Sunday. The tight end gained 84 yards on 7 receptions and added 2 touchdowns. Now that he is finally in his Pro Bowl form, Reed is a great tight end in any fantasy format.
FLEX: Amari Cooper, 24 points- Rookie standout, Amari Cooper had arguably his best day as a professional on Sunday. He had 6 receptions that would go for 120 yards and the rookie would add 2 touchdowns to his day as well. This was Coopers first multi touchdown game of the season.
D/ST: Chiefs, 20 points- The Chiefs defense only allowed 14 points to the Ravens on Sunday. They also forced three turnovers including 2 interceptions and 1 fumble recovery. On the day, they also scored an outlandish 2 touchdowns off of the turnovers. They would also add 2 sacks to the day.
K: Stephen Gostkowski, 16 points- Gostkowski, or as some call him “GOATkowski”,went 4 for 5 on field goals on Sunday. He made a 42 yarder and a 43 yarder as well as from 32 yards and 38 yards. The Patriots offense also helped him to tack on 3 extra points as well off of touchdowns.
