Patriots 21 - Steelers 18

Ezekiel Elliott turned back the clock and carried the Patriots' offense, racking up 140 yards and a receiving TD on 29 touches. Bailey Zappe isn’t a starter in superflex leagues yet, but he looked better this week than Mac Jones did all year, firing off 240 yards and 3 TD passes.

It was hard to imagine the Steelers' offensive attack becoming less potent, but when you remove Kenny Pickett for Mitch Trubisky, here we are. Diontae Johnson hauled in a TD pass to prop up his three-catch, 57-yard performance, but otherwise, no other Steelers skill player hit double-digit fantasy points.

Ravens 37 - Rams 31

Lamar Jackson had an outstanding performance in the Ravens' victory on Sunday, throwing for 316 yards and three touchdowns with an additional 70 yards on the ground. Odell Beckham Jr., Isaiah Likely, and Zay Flowers all had big days, combining for 240 yards on 15 catches with one TD each.

Matt Stafford had 294 yards and 3 touchdowns and is getting hot at the right time for fantasy GMs who need Stafford to step up in the QB2 spots down the stretch. Cooper Kupp had 115 yards and a TD on eight catches, while Kyren Williams broke off 114 yards on the ground.

Jets 30 - Texans 6

Zach Wilson lit up the Texans' defense for 301 yards and 2 TDs while Breece Hall turned 18 touches into 126 yards, a TD, and 8 catches for a huge bump in PPR leagues. Garrett Wilson brought in nine of 14 targets for 108 yards to pace the pass catchers.

The entire Texans offense struggled to get going, with only one player reaching double-digit fantasy points. Devin Singletary had 65 yards and a TD, but the biggest story of the game was Nico Collins and CJ Stroud both leaving the game with injuries. If they are forced to miss time, this offense would become a complete no-fly zone for me.

Saints 28 - Panthers 6

It was a weirdly quiet fantasy day for the Saints considering they put up 28 points. Alvin Kamara had 15 touches for 45 yards and a TD, while Chris Olave had 4 catches for 28 yards but saved his day with a TD. Derek Carr finished with 119 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 interception but looked even worse on film than his numbers indicate.

Chuba Hubbard has emerged as the clear RB1 in the Panthers backfield, turning 25 total touches into 96 yards. Miles Sanders was still involved with 74 yards on 10 carries but will be hard to trust down the stretch, as his numbers were boosted by one 48-yard run. Jonathan Mingo led the team with 9 targets but was ineffective, while Adam Thielen led the way with five catches for 74 yards.

Browns 31 - Jaguars 27

Joe Flacco has provided a stabilizing presence to the Browns' offense that they’ve been missing, racking up 311 yards and 3 TDs in the Browns' victory. I was skeptical, but Jerome Ford has entered the must-start RB2 range for me moving forward, as he totaled 82 yards on 17 touches with 5 coming via catch. David Njoku led the pass catchers with 91 yards and two TDs, while Amari Cooper had 77 yards on 7 catches.

Evan Engram was determined to make sure Njoku wasn’t the only TE going off on Sunday, answering with 11 catches for 95 yards and two TDs of his own. Trevor Lawrence had three TD passes but was picked off three times and looked like his timing was off all game as he battled through a sprained ankle. Travis Etienne led the backfield with 72 total yards and a rushing TD.

Bengals 34 - Colts 14

Jake Browning had a strong performance with 275 yards and 2 TDs as the Bengals keep their playoff hopes alive. Joe Mixon had 125 total yards and a TD and is looking like a league winner for the fantasy playoffs with his current role in the offense. Tee Higgins showed some life with 72 yards on two catches, and a late-season resurgence would be much appreciated by many GMs who’ve stuck it out with him.

The Zach Moss who was winning weeks early in the season hasn’t shown up the last two weeks, as he was bottled up for 56 total yards on 17 touches. Michael Pittman Jr anchored the Colts' passing attack with eight catches for 95 yards, while rookie TE Will Mallory caught all five of his targets for 46 yards and is a name to watch down the stretch.

Bears 28 - Lions 13

Justin Fields and DJ Moore continue to give opposing defenses headaches as the Lions had no answers for the Bears duo. Moore scored two TDs and 88 total yards as Fields threw for 223 yards and a TD with an additional 58 yards and a TD on the ground. Cole Kmet continues to provide solid low-end TE1 value, catching five of seven targets for 66 yards.

The Lions got off to a slow start in this one, and the passing attack was never able to establish much of a rhythm on offense as Jared Goff was held to 161 yards and intercepted twice. Jahmyr Gibbs and David Montgomery split the work down the middle and combined for 167 total yards, but it was Gibbs who came away with the rushing TD in this one.

Buccaneers 29 - Falcons 25

Rachaad White was the focal point of the Buccaneers' offense on Sunday, and he responded with 133 total yards and a receiving TD. Baker Mayfield connected on two TD passes but was limited to just 144 yards as Chris Godwin was the only WR to reach double-digit PPR points with five catches for 53 yards.

Desmond Ridder threw for 347 yards and a TD, peppering Drake London with 11 targets that turned into 10 catches for 172 yards. Kyle Pitts hauled in 57 yards and a TD, while Bijan Robinson racked up 88 total yards and a TD. Robinson’s day was inches from being even bigger, as he was missed by Ridder on a wide-open throw that would have led to a second TD.

Vikings 3 - Raiders 0

After a few exciting games, the “Passtronaut” Joshua Dobbs came crashing out of orbit and was benched for Nick Mullens after going 10/23 for 63 yards. TJ Hockenson snatched up five of his eight targets for 53 yards and is the only must-start player in this offense while they figure out their QB situation.

Davante Adams caught seven passes for 53 yards and was the only Raider to put up double-digit PPR points in a low-scoring game that doesn’t even really qualify as a defensive slugfest; it was just two bad offenses trying to be less bad than the other. Josh Jacobs was bottled up all game, as he broke free for just 50 yards on 15 touches.

49ers 28 - Seahawks 16

Another week, another set of huge fantasy performances for all of the 49ers' main cast. Christian McCaffrey broke off 145 yards on 16 carries, while Deebo Samuel rattled off 150 total yards and two TDs. Brandon Aiyuk caught six passes for 126 yards, and George Kittle even got in on the action with 76 yards and a TD.

Drew Lock got the start for an injured Geno Smith and finished with 269 yards, two TDs, and two interceptions. The backfield was kept in check all game as Zach Charbonnet and Kenneth Walker were held to a combined 65 total yards on 17 carries. DK Metcalf’s hot streak continued as he needed just two catches to break off 52 yards and a score.

Broncos 24 - Chargers 7

Courtland Sutton hauled in his tenth TD of the season as Russell Wilson fired off 224 yards and two TDs in a must-win game for the Broncos. Javonte Williams racked up 20 total touches for 91 yards and a score and is settling into a groove that has to have Fantasy GMs feeling good entering the playoffs.

Justin Herbert left the game with an injury to his throwing hand that could be tragic for fantasy teams as the playoffs start if he’s limited or misses time. Austin Ekeler stepped up in Herbert's absence and did what he could to carry the offense with 100 total yards and a TD. Quentin Johnston paced the WRs with 91 yards on three catches.

Bills 20 - Chiefs 17

James Cook had a monster performance with 58 rushing yards and five catches that turned into a team-high 83 yards and a TD. Josh Allen passed for 233 yards and a TD with an additional 32 yards and a score on the ground to prop up his final numbers. Even with Dawson Knox’s return, Dalton Kincaid finished second on the team with eight targets.

Rashee Rice caught seven passes for 72 yards and a TD and has emerged as the only pass catcher besides Travis Kelce that you can count on for weekly production in this passing game. The rushing attack was non-existent without Isiah Pacheco in the mix as Clyde Edwards-Helaire led the team with 11 carries but was bottled up for just 39 yards.

Cowboys 33 - Eagles 13

Dak Prescott's run of elite play continued on Sunday night with 271 yards and two TDs as the Cowboys dismantled the Eagles and made the NFC East race a whole lot closer as we enter the final month. CeeDee Lamb caught six of ten targets for 71 yards and a TD, while Jake Ferguson caught five passes for a team-high 72 yards.

A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith both had solid games for fantasy that will be overshadowed by costly fumbles in the media this week. Brown caught nine passes for 94 yards while Smith had 73 yards on five catches. The rest of the Eagles' offense struggled as their only TD of the day came on a scoop-and-score fumble recovery by Jalen Carter.
