Justin Herbert, QB, LAC

274 passing yards, 3 passing TDs, 38 rushing yards, 1 two-point convert, 28.7 points.

Looks to be finding his form with two straight 20+ point games.

Josh Jacobs, RB, LV

229 rushing yards, 74 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 45.3 points.

Shook off a fourth-quarter calf injury to come back in OT and score the winning TD.

Nick Chubb, RB, CLE

116 rushing yards, 16 receiving yards, 1 TD, 19.7 points.

Another star RB with a game-winning overtime TD, Chubb reached 100 yards for the sixth time this year.

Garrett Wilson, WR, NYJ

95 receiving yards, -1 rushing yard, 2 TDs, 23.9 points.

Rookie now has 90+ yards in three of his past four games and notched his second multi-TD game of the season.

Chris Godwin, WR, TB

110 receiving yards, 1 TD, 23 points.

With a team-leading 13 targets on Sunday, he now has six games with double-digit looks in his past eight.

Josh Oliver, TE, BAL

76 receiving yards, 1 TD, 15.6 points.

He’s TE3 on the Ravens depth chart, but led the team in receptions and yardage this week.

Miami Dolphins DEF

15 points allowed, 5 sacks, 2 INTs, 1 fumble recovered, 1 TD, 18 points.

Justin Tucker, K, BAL

4 FGs, 128 FG yards, 2 PATs, 14.8 points.


Russell Wilson, QB, DEN

142 passing yards, 1 passing TD, 8 rushing yards, 1 fumble lost, 8.4 points.

Had his worst outing of the season, which is saying something.

Kenyan Drake, RB, BAL

2 rushing yards, 0.2 points.

Was used purely in a reserve role with Gus Edwards back in the lineup.

Alvin Kamara, RB, NO

13 rushing yards, 37 receiving yards, 2 fumbles lost, 4 points.

Briefly left the game with an injury, but it was the fumbles that did him in this week.

Dameon Pierce, RB, HOU

8 rushing yards, 8 receiving yards, 3.1 points.

After also notching eight rushing yards last week, that’s a total of 16 on 15 touches. Ouch.

Jahan Dotson, WR, WAS

0 receptions, 0 points.

Rookie has totally fallen off the radar with just four targets in the past three games.

Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, CLE

16 receiving yards, 2.6 points.

Saw his outstanding streak of seven straight games with 50+ receiving yards come to an end.

Mike Evans, WR, TB

31 receiving yards, 4.1 points.

Despite getting nine targets, came up with just two receptions in the overtime loss to Cleveland.

Juwan Johnson, TE, NO

0 receptions, 0 points.

After three straight games with a touchdown, Johnson failed to even make a catch.


The Jets made the switch to Mike White this week in an effort to spark a passing game that wasn’t working under Zach Wilson. The move paid off in spades, with White throwing for 315 yards and three TDs against the Bears. It might be hard for Wilson, the former second-overall pick, to earn his job back.

The list of WRs who have had two games with double-digit catches isn’t very long, but you can now add Zay Jones to it. The Jags WR had 11 receptions on 14 targets for a whopping 145 yards against the Ravens, good for 22 fantasy points.
