ScarecrowGrin’s Fantasy Football 2 Cents (12/20/18) CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK
By: Robert L. Porter Jr
Week 15 saw alot of upsets im sure due to the fact that most of the top 10 Fantasy Quarterbacks all decided to throw up stinkers on the doorstep of a fantasy championship but lets look at the guys he didn’t leave us high and dry in the semifinals first.
DeAndre Hopkins (41.00 PPR points) and Tidd Gurley (34.40 PPR points) aren’t surprises on the list top 5 scorers this week (Hopkins #1 and Gurley #3) but LA Chargers WR Mike Williams (36.50 PPR points) was. With Keenan Allen going down early with a hip injury, Williams took over to the tune of 1 rush for 19 yards and a TD along with 7 catches, 76 yards, 2 TDs and the game winning 2 pt conversion. In that same game, Damien Williams (30.30 PPR points) carried the mail for the Chiefs with 16 touches for 123 yards and 2 TDs. Derrick Henry (32.24 PPR points) had 33 carries for 170 yards and 2 TDs as he and his Titans shutout the Giants in MetLife Stadium.
Other High scoring RBs were Dalvin Cook (29.30 PPR points), Christian McCaffery (28.00 PPR points), Joe Mixon (27.00 PPR points), Chris Carson (26.80 PPR points) and Marlon Mack (25.90 PPR points). Mack torches Dallas for 149 total yards and 2 TDs on their way to a stunning 23-0 blowout win over the Cowboys. Alvin Kamara (23.30 PPR points) was the the only saint to fi d the endzone on Monday night as they outlast the Panthers in a defensive battle.
It was a pleasant surprise to see Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (26.00 PPR points) become relevant in fantasy football again as he and new Eagles starter Nick Foles looked to have picked up where they left off in last years Superbowl. Another guy who resurfaced in Fantasy was Doug Baldwin (23.70 PPR points), angry Doug had 4 receptions for 77 yards and 2 TD against the banged up 49ers secondary. His performance wasn’t enough to help the Seahawks win but we are here to talk about fantasy football so that doesn’t matter to us.
