FANTASY FOOTBALL SURPRISES AND DISAPPOINTMENTS- WEEK 7
FANTASY FOOTBALL SURPRISES AND DISAPPOINTMENTS – WEEK 7
By – John Falabella
Derrick Henry – In my preseason article, I expected some sort of decline from Henry this season after putting up 2000 yards last season and tons of touches over the last three years. When I wrote the article, I was under the assumption that Derrick Henry was human… He is not… and apparently, there are extraterrestrials playing in the NFL… that is surprising!
D’Ernest Johnson – With Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt out, D’Ernest Johnson stepped right in and stole the show with 24 touches for 168 yards and a TD. The surprising part is that he was working with Case Keenum since Baker Mayfield was also out versus a stout Denver Defense.
Mike White – The backup QB for the Jets was forced into the game when Zach Wilson got injured on Sunday. The surprising part was that the 2018 5th round pick out of Western Kentucky looked better than Wilson, the #2 overall pick out of BYU.
Cincinnati Bengals – The Bengals won on Sunday to take over First Place in the AFC North… the surprising part is that they went into Baltimore to do it and not just that… they dominated the Ravens and it wasn’t even close.
Detroit Lions – The Lions pulled out all the stops on Sunday and didn’t win… the surprising part was that they almost knocked off the Rams in Jared Goff’s return to LA.
The Chiefs/Andy Reid/Patrick Mahomes – The Chiefs seem to make this section of my article every week… but on Sunday, in what should have been one of the best games of the week, was nothing but a disappointment. The Chiefs are starting to look like that “Dream Team” they had in Philadelphia.
Calvin Ridley – After sitting out the London game, Calvin Ridley bounced back with 10 targets on Sunday. The disappointing part is that he only caught 4 and only had 26 yards. He did score a touchdown, but the Ryan–Ridley connection should be more productive. Ridley has yet to eclipse 100 yards in a game this season.
Chris Broussard – Yes, Chris Broussard, the FOX host formerly of ESPN, he made a comment about the Buffalo Bills not converting on 4th down because PRO-BOWL tackle Taylor Lewan was not in the game… even though he plays for the other team. “Come’on Man” that comment was “Jacked up” (Credit to ESPN for those quotes) but FOX SPORTS, all I do is watch football on Sundays, so if you need someone to get it right, I’m available.
