If there's one lesson we've learned from doing this article all season, it's not to pick against quarterbacks.
Their value often relies on game flow, which is almost impossible to predict. While Dak Prescott fell flat as expected, Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan each tossed three TDs and were among the top fantasy scorers. Who would have thought the Seahawks would get run out of the building or that Jeff Fisher would be throwing in the towel on his career without even knowing it? Despite running for just 66 yards and averaging 2.87 and 2.75 yards per carry, both Doug Martin and Jon Stewart took goal-line plunges to salvage their fantasy days. Every WR on last week's list was a massive bust, however, so from now on I will be selecting only wide receivers. OK, mostly wide receivers. Here's the official recap breakdown:
Sad receivers (and Dak):
Dak Prescott (165 YDS, 1 TD, 2 INT)
DeVante Parker (2 REC, 14 YDS)
Quincy Enunwa (3 REC, 29 YDS)
Rishard Matthews (1 REC, 26 YDS)
Tyler Lockett (4 REC, 41 YDS)
Aaron Rodgers (246 YDS, 3 TD, 0 INT)
Matt Ryan (237 YDS, 3 TD, 0 INT)
Doug Martin (66 RUSH YDS, 19 REC YDS, 1 TD)
Jonathan Stewart (66 RUSH YDS, 1 TD)
Kyle Rudolph (4 REC, 60 YDS, 1 TD)
If you're still fighting in the playoffs this week, chances are you've avoided most of these busts all year. Keep your wits about you, play it smart, roll with what got you here and stick with your studs.
