Week 15's Studs and Duds
We got the good Russell Wilson (229 yards and 3 TDs) in this one as they made sure the Rams stay at the bottom of the division. In a game full of great defensive players, Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett got on the board with their own TDs.
Takeaways: It’s been safe to say for a while that the Rams’ offense is untouchable. What a shame you used your first round pick on Todd Gurley. But, you probably should’ve known.
We saw surprise performances from Ryan Mathews and Ty Montgomery, each had 100+ yards and a pair of scores. LeSean McCoy got the same, but you expect that from a clear RB1. Drew Brees bounced back and got himself 388 yards and 4 TDs. Wow would that have been nice a week ago. AP didn’t do much, but what did you expect from a 3 man rotation. And Tom Brady fell behind too with only 188 yards.
Takeaways: The weather is getting colding and teams will not be airing it out much. So if you don’t have a stud RB, then you might be struggling in the playoffs.
The Redskins dropped an egg and jeopardized their playoff hopes. The loss came by the hands of Cam Newton and his 300 yards and 2 TDs. Jonathan Stewart added his own 132 yards. It didn’t help Jordan Reed got tossed for punching either.
Takeaways: The Redskins’ offense is still very potent and should be relied on in your championship or semifinals. The Panthers’ offense really only has Newton and Stewart.
Waiver Looks: WR Tyler Lockett, WR JJ Nelson, RB Ty Montgomery, QB Tom Savage, TE Dion Sims, RB Dion Lewis
