This week I scored 202 points (highest for the week), breaking my two game losing streak with some much needed points. The Derek Carr / Amari Cooper stack paid dividends compiling over 100 points between the two of them. Overall I had solid performance from everyone on my team — with the exception of Spencer Ware who exited the game early with a concussion.
Two of the three teams ahead of me won, and the one team that lost had a low scoring week. This week’s win paid dividends in keeping me in the playoff hunt – especially because I closed the points gap a bit. I do remain in fourth place with a 5-3 record.
At 121 points — I scored in the middle of the pack. My team generally performed well, but a few of my RBs struggled. James White had an off game despite an offensive showcase by NE, and Spencer Ware exited early with a concussion. I also benched Derek Carr for Kirk Cousins this week, but both QBs had good games bolstered by both teams going deep into OT.
This win puts me at a 7-1 record and I maintain sole ownership of first place.
