Sunday, December 3, 2017


Week Thirteen, or Josh Gordon Week, is here! After finally being reinstated from a long suspension, Gordon is back on the field for the Browns and starting. A player ending his long starting streak is Giants QB Eli Manning, who will backup new starter Geno Smith and is reportedly considering retirement. Also, QB Jimmy Garoppolo is making his first start for the 49ers.

 

(7:28PM) The late slate has wrapped up with little fanfare. The Raiders hung on against the Geno Smith-led Giants, while the Chargers beat the Browns, Saints took out the Panthers and Rams doubled up the Cardinals. Enjoy the final two games of the week and good luck as the fantasy playoffs arrive. 

 

(7:15PM) Panthers WR Devin Funchess just made a great contested catch and ran it in for a touchdown, though it will almost certainly be too little, too late. Carolina now trails be ten points with under four minutes remaining. The play did help save the fantasy day for Funchess owners as he now has a 4/60/1 line. 

 

(7:07PM) The Chargers have wrapped up their win over the Browns and are now tied atop the AFC West with a 6-6 record. The Raiders have a chance to match that record if they can hang on against the Giants. 

 

(7:03PM) Finally, the top-scoring FF TEs for the week, up to this point...

TE1- Travis Kelce

TE2- Rob Gronkowski

TE3- Stephen Anderson

TE4- Cameron Brate

TE5- David Njoku

 

(6:58PM) The Giants and QB Geno Smith are making this a game. Smith just led a drive, culminating with a 10-yard touchdown pass to TE Evan Engram. New York now trails 17-13 with just over five minutes remaining. 

 

(6:55PM) The Saints are doubling up the Panthers, 28-14 on the back of RB Alvin Kamara, who has 105 total yards and a pair of scores. RB Mark Ingram and WR Michael Thomas have also been key contributors in the game. 

 

(6:52PM) The Chargers lead the Browns 19-10 with less than five minutes remaining. WR Josh Gordon leads the Browns with ten targets, but has just three catches and has shown some understandable rust in the second-half. TE David Njoku has posted a 4/74/1 line in the game. Chargers WR Keenan Allen has exploded for a 10/105/1 line, though RB Melvin Gordon is putting up another relatively quiet game with 94 scoreless yards.

 

(6:50PM) It's time to check in on the four late games, beginning with the Raiders/Giants. Oakland leads the Giants 17-7 early in the final quarter. RB Marshawn Lynch is over 100 rushing yards and has a 51-yard touchdown run. Giants TE Evan Engram has four grabs for 63 yards, but there is nothing else going for the G Men.

 

(6:47PM) The top-scoring FF WRs for the week, so far...

WR1- Tyreek Hill

WR2- Keenan Allen

WR3- Jermaine Kearse

WR4- Marqise Lee

WR5- Robby Anderson

 

(6:28PM) The Rams have extended their lead and WR Sammy Watkins recorded just his second reception of the game, this one good for an 11-yard touchdown. Watkins now has a 2/24/1 line, while QB Jared Goff is up to 162 yards and two scores. 

 

(6:26PM) The top-scoring FF RBs for the week, so far...

RB1- Rex Burkhead

RB2- Alvin Kamara

RB3- Alex Collins

RB4- Kenyan Drake

RB5- Mark Ingram

 

(6:24PM) There are few words left to say. Saints RB Alvin Kamara has scored again and New Orleans now leads 28-14. Kamara has 91 total yards and two scores on only nine touches and is on his way to a seventh consecutive RB1 finish. 

 

(6:06PM) Let's check in on the top-scoring players this week from each position, beginning with the quarterbacks...

QB1- Alex Smith

QB2- Josh McCown

QB3- Blake Bortles

QB4- Joe Flacco

QB5- Jameis Winston

 

(5:52PM) It has been a disappointing day for the Chargers, who have laregly failed to take advantage of the Browns weak pass defense, but QB Philip Rivers just found WR Keenan Allen for seven-yard touchdown, extending their lead to 16-7 early in the third quarter. Allen now has an 8/96/1 line on ten targets. 

 

(5:43PM) The Panthers are making this a game. QB Cam Newton hit RB Christian McCaffrey with a short pass and he did the rest, taking it into the end zone from 21 yards out. McCaffrey now has 34 total yards along with the touchdown. Carolina trails 21-14. 

 

(5:28PM) The tough Panthers defense hasn't been able to slow down the Saints early on. After rushing touchdowns from both RBs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram earlier in the game, QB Drew Brees just hit WR Michael Thomas for a ten-yard score, giving the Saints a 21-7 lead.  Thomas has a 3/35/1 line midway through the second quarter. 

 

(5:24PM) The Cardinals are on the board on a one-yard score from RB Elijah Penny. With starter Adrian Peterson out today, Arizona is using a committee with Penny and Kerwynn Williams leading the way. The Rams continue to lead 16-7.
