FANTASY FOOTBALL SURPRISES AND DISAPPOINTMENTS- WEEK 15
FANTASY FOOTBALL SURPRISES AND DISAPPOINTMENTS – WEEK 15
By Eddie Sebastian
Week 15 ended on Wednesday because the N.F.L. moved some games due to a substantial covid outbreak amongst many teams. Speaking of ending, I was 11 minutes away from advancing to the championship game, then Cooper Kupp caught a 30-yard touchdown against the Seahawks, ending my season. I had a chance to draft Kupp, but I took his teammate Robert Woods, who had a solid season but tore his ACL at practice before week 10. So the reason I lost is that my team laid an egg this week, and I have 4 of my players on the Disappointment list to prove it.
Chris Boswell: K.- Kickers don’t get a lot of love, but Boswell booted 4 field goals and 1 p.a.t in the Steelers‘ upset victory over the Tennessee Titans and helped Pittsburgh keep their playoff hopes alive.
Brandin Cooks: W.R.- He’s the only player on the Houston Texans worth owning. If you’re in the fantasy football playoffs and started him, he rewarded you with 102 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns against the Jaguars. Let’s go, Brandin!
Travis Kelce: T.E. After making our S*** list for two consecutive weeks, the second-best Tight End in football erupted for 191 yards receiving and 2 touchdowns.
Patrick Mahomes: Q.B.- The first quarterback taken in almost every fantasy football draft threw for 410 yards, 3 Tds, and 1 pick against the Chargers on Thursday Night. The K.C. Chiefs are hot as they won their seventh game in a row.
New Orleans: Defense- Against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they pitched a shut out and had 4 sacks, 1 interception, and 1 fumble recovery for 28 fantasy football points. Who dat? Who dat? Who Dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?
Najee Harris: R.B. The Steelers superstar rookie has been phenomenal most of the season, so it was quite the disappointment when he rushed 12 times for 18 yards and only had 2 catches for 8 yards in the Steelers’ Week 15 win over the Titans. This performance is not acceptable for a first-round pick, especially during the fantasy football playoffs.
Rob Gronkowski: T.E.- The Buccaneers Tight End became Tom Brady‘s number one option after Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, and Leonard Fournette all got injured and had to leave the game. Gronk had a season-high 11 targets but only caught 2 of them for 29 yards against the Saints.
Tom Brady: Q.B.- The goat looked more like a jackass against the Saints on Sunday Night. According to ESPN SportsCenter, Tom Brady has been shut out for the first time in 15 years. As a result, his streak ends at 255 starts. He threw for 214 yards but threw a pick and fumbled once. That’s good for 4.76 fantasy points.
Russell Wilson: Q.B. – The Seahawks needed to beat the L.A. Rams to keep their playoff hopes alive, and Rus let them down. He picked the wrong time to have his worst game the year. 156 yards passing and 1 T.D. for 4.24 fantasy points.
New England: Defense- The Patriots defense has been lighting it up with double-digit fantasy football points for the last seven weeks. On Saturday, they gave up 27 points to the Indianapolis Colts and gave their fantasy football owners a measly 4 points.
