Fantasy Football’s Week 17 has surprised us different game twists and turns, one of the most thrilling in this league’s season. Here is a recap of the week’s top performers and best game plays.
Both the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins let their football players shine this week. Julian Edelman headed the Patriots with 151 yards on eight receptions while Maretellus Bennett and new member Michael Floyd contributed a lot . Tom Brady also aced the game with 276 yards and three touchdowns.
The NFC North Division need not a must-win to get to the playoffs but Aaron Rogers still delivered with an impressive 300-yard, 4-TD performance. Minnesota Viking’s Sam Bradford, on the other hand, sent 250 yards and three touchdowns.
For the tight ends, Kyle Rudolph and Zach Ertz both did well this week. Rudolph aka Big Country aced 11 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown, while Ertz successfully catches 13 passes for 139 yards and two scores. Charger’s Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry both had a touchdown for at least 40 yards each.
Other noteworthy players include Drew Brees, Carson Palmer, Matthew Stanford and Corey Grant among others. Grant’s 57-yard dash to the end zone is worth mentioning along with his 122 yard on 19 carries and a score. On the other hand, Jacksonville’s T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory failed make an impression this week. Joining them are David Johnson, DeMarco Murray and Alfred Blue, all failing below expectations this week.
Paul Perkins of the Giants gained 102 yards while Rex Burkhead rushed for 119 yards and two scores. Isiah Crowell outran other rushers this week with 152 yards and is only 48 yards short to his first 1000 yards.
Week 17 really let a lot of stars shine as Bilal Powell and Jordan Howard locked down 122 yards and 135 yards respectively. Devontae Booker, Charcandrick West and Mark Ingram all had outstanding plays, too.
DeAndre Hopkins catches up on his entire season’s poor performance with this week’s 123 yards with two quarterbacks. Davante Adams had 31 yards and two scores, someone you can consider next to Rogers.
Finishing the season with 10 catches for 156 yard, Michael Thomas is expected to be the best option for Saints next season.
