This week in the NFL will long be remembered for Peyton Manning’s return to Indianapolis for the first time as an opponent. But there were many other memorable moments this week including several that will haunt your fantasy football teams for quite awhile. Injuries to QB’s such as Jay Cutler, Nick Foles and Sam Bradford are atop the headlines but losing Arian Foster and Doug Martin could very well have hurt fantasy owners more this week. Breakout performances by players such as Roy Helu, Jordan Reed, Jarrett Boykin and Harry Douglas helped to heal some of the wounds created by injury. Let’s take a look inside everything that happened in Week 7 of the NFL from a Fantasy Football perspective.
Week 6 started out like a thud with Touchdowns from such fantasy stalwarts as Cory Harkey, Joseph Fauria & Thaddeus Lewis before the usual suspects came through to save the day. But as good as Cam Newton, JaMaal Charles and Marshawn Lynch were others such as Jimmy Graham, Ray Rice and Calvin Johnson fell flat. But no matter how bad you may have lost your matchup this week the Packers may have lost even worse considering both Randall Cobb and James Jones left with significant leg injuries. Let’s take a look at all of the games played on this Sunday of Week 6 from a Fantasy Football perspective.
Week 3 is going to be remembered more for who didn’t do what rather than who actually showed up this week. There were so many disappointments this week from Marshawn Lynch ruining the greatest of matchups to the entire Giants offense soaking the bed with diarrhea. Then of course it just wouldn’t have been a Sunday of Football without several notable RB’s going down with injuries. While we wait on more news from C.J. Spiller, Daryl Richardson, James Starks and Chris Ivory let’s sit back and review everything that happened in Week 3.
