Week 6 delivered much like the previous five have… And, if you’re a fantasy football guy you know all about the highs and lows one Sunday can bring. We watch as our fantasy players are either “Bed Shitters or Big Hitters”, and that’s all we can do; WATCH. Here’s a brief highlight of who did what—
- 49ers Defense: Big Hitters— They took the once explosive, high powering offense and made them look like the Dolphins. With four sacks and under 80 yards of passing, you can’t call them anything but Big Hitters. Oh, and by the way they have the Redskins next week so expect much of the same from these guys. The 49ers are the real deal. Never thought I’d say that.
- Jared Goof: Bed Shitter— No, his name wasn’t spelled “Goof” on accident. His performance Sunday was a joke. I spoke about him above and covered just about all you needed to know. He shit the bed, period. No accuracy, no pocket presence, no win. Simple enough.
- Terry McLaurin: Big Hitter— Maybe it was just the matchup, after all, everyone has had their way with the Dolphins thus far. But like my late grandfather always told me, “You’ve got to give credit when credit is due.” And, credit is due. McLaurin balled to say the least.
- Deshaun Watson: Big Hitter— In the first quarter of the game a buddy of mine texted me saying he’s “done” with Watson. I quickly responded, “I’ll give you Dak for him”. Let’s hope he doesn’t read this and change his mind. Watson is the Mahomes like QB you got at a discount.
- Will Fuller: Bed Shitter— Last week he put up the best fantasy performance in 15 years. I warned twitter followers to temper expectations moving forward. Though his day could have been worse, the reason he finds himself on this list can be summed up in one word, DROPS. He dropped three touchdowns. Which shows me the trust from Watson and volume in targets are there. But it reminds me that Fuller may very well be the most Boom or Bust player not named Sammy Watkins.
- Miles Sanders: Big Hitter and Bed Shitter— Jordan Howard has let the fantasy world know he is the running back in Philadelphia. So, with Sanders’ single digit rushing total he earned the title “Bed Shitter”. But then we remember with DeSean Jackson out the Eagles lack speed… Sanders has speed. And, he is a “Big Hitter” when it came to the pass catching duties against the Vikings.
- Christian McCaffrey: Big Hitter— Guy could have a statue on this list. Even on a mediocre week for CMC he does better than most. This bye week rest should do this workhorse wonders.
- Arizona’s Entire Offense: Big Hitter— Although this was matchup heaven for the Cardinals, they did what they were supposed to do. Kyler showed us why he was drafted with the #1 pick in April’s draft. He had the best performance of his young career. While David Johnson erased all question marks about how questionable he really was. Giants next week should be just as easy.
- New England’s Defense: Big Hitter— Their defense has scored more touchdowns than their opponents offense has so far this season. We are watching today’s version of the ’87 Bears. And, yes, a lot of it has to do with matchups. No one has an easier road to the playoffs than the Pats. But please don’t sleep on how good this defense really is.
- Lamar “Legs” Jackson: Big Hitter— You can send him a thank you tweet. If his performance wasn’t enough to win your league, then shame on you. Lamar made the Bengals look a lot like the Saints did last year. He embarrassed them. Over 150 yards on the ground and over 200 in the air. This man could not be contained. A performance with that stat line hadn’t been done since 1950. WOW, right?
- Chris Godwin: Big Hitter— He has been what everyone hoped Mike Evans would be. He’s the best fantasy WR in the league. And, if Sunday was an indication of how things are going to go, I don’t see him slowing down. Good luck to fantasy owners filling that void this week on his bye.
- The Couple that Fights: Big Hitter— I’m referring to Kirk Cousins and Stefon Diggs… I wanted to save them for last. Just two weeks ago we all thought Diggs was on his way out. I personally did, I’ll admit it. The receivers, especially Diggs, were unhappy with Kirk. It didn’t seem like things could ever get back to normal. But then it hit me Thursday night, I asked my fiancée, “Have you ever heard the saying squeaky wheel gets the grease?”. I knew that Stefon’s big day was oh so close to being here. I tried trading for him— rejected unfortunately. Regardless him and that guy, Kirk, he complained about did nothing but make big plays.
