SCARECROWGRIN FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEKLY: NOV. 2nd, 2017
FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 9
The will he or won’t he in reference to Ezekiel Elliott and his 6 game suspension seems to have finally came to a conclusion and that conclusion is…… He Will serve the suspension this season. For his fantasy owners he went out with a bang by scoring 28.40 fantasy points in Washington In week 8.
The Seahawks vs Texans game has leap frogged the week 7 Chiefs vs Raiders game as the front runner for game of the year. The Fantasy worlds top 3 scorers came from this game. #1 Russell Wilson ( 45.08 fantasy points ) had his best day passing as a pro tossing for 452 yards and 4 TDs. #2 DeShaun Watson ( 42.78 fantasy points ) continued his assault on secondaires but the Legion of Boom did hit him for 3 picks but that’s irrelevant in fantasy on a day like he had. #3 DeAndre Hopkins ( 38.90 fantasy points ) tallied up 8 rec 224 yards and 1 TD. Also Will Fuller was #6, Paul Richardson was #9 and Lamar Miller Was #16. If you had any one in this game you were happy about it.
Ju Ju Smith-Schuster ( 34.30 fantasy points ) exploded for 7 rec 193 yards and a TD vs Detroit in a game he started for the disgruntled Martavius Bryant, his 97 yard TD catch was one of the plays of the week. Jack Doyle ( 30.10 fantasy points ) has become Jacoby Brissett’s go to guy which is big news since Andrew Luck will most likely be on the shelf for this whole year. Doyle has scored 40.50 fantasy points over the last two weeks to the tune of 18 rec 165 yards and 1 TD, he’s on the must start list as of now.
BYE: Bears, Browns, Chargers, Patriots, Vikings, Steelers
BREAKOUT CANDIDATES WEEK 8 (RESULTS)
QB – Andy Dalton – 22.72
RB – Wendell Smallwood – 3.40
WR – Jamison Crowder – 22.50
Smallwood’s roll was a small one, only 2 touches and his 3.40 reflected that. Andy Dalton scored 22.76 vs the Colts and that was without a good game from A.J. Green, his points total could’ve been much greater but we will be satisfied with this. Jamison Crowder was the only Redskins pass catcher that showed in the rainy game vs Dallas. His 22.50 was just in time with teams on bye.
BREAKOUT CANDIDATES WEEK 9
QB – Brett Hundley – Packers
RB – Tevin Coleman – Falcons
WR – Dez Bryant – Cowboys
This week we are looking for Dez to look like he did before his injury spree began, with Devonta Freeman a little banged up look for Coleman to see more work and after the bye week Mike McCarthy has to have Hundley be better if they expect to stay in the playoff race. Come by next week to see how our BOC’s turned out.
