QB Studs

Jameis Winston

Despite throwing two interceptions and failing to convert what would have been a miraculous last second play, Winston had an exceptional outing on Sunday against the Falcons. Winston threw for an impressive 395 yards and four touchdowns while completing 30-of-41 pass attempts. He also gained 31 rushing yards on five carries. It was just his second game of the season, and his first start, but it was a friendly matchup for Winston against the feeble Falcons defense. His 30.9 point outing might be the best game of the season for the fourth year QB, as he hosts the Browns in Week 7.

Dak Prescott

Prescott had arguably his best game of the season in Week 6 as the Cowboys trounced Jalen Ramsey and the Jaguars, 40-7. Prescott completed 17-of-27 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing for 82 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. It was by far his most mobile game of the season, and he put up 29.5 fantasy points on the week. While it was Prescott’s first game posting over 20 fantasy points this season, it was an encouraging outing from Dak as well as the rest of the Cowboys offense who had been struggling in previous weeks. They head to Washington for a NFC East showdown in Week 7.

Aaron Rodgers

Another day, another fourth quarter comeback. Rodgers has ice in his veins and he displayed that once again on Monday Night, leading the Packers to a 33-30 win over the 49ers. It was the second consecutive week that Rodgers threw for more than 400 passing yards and he has put up huge performances in each of his last two outings. Rodgers threw for 425 yards and two touchdowns, both to Davante Adams. He ran the ball three times for 34 yards and was not intercepted in the outing. While the Packers offense struggled at times, Rodgers showed his grit, leading the team to their third win of the season. He posted 28.4 fantasy points and has been red hot heading into the Packers’ BYE week.

QB Duds

Deshaun Watson

Watson did not have his way against the Buffalo Bills defense, and it probably impacted your week if you started him. The sophomore QB only managed to provide owners with a season-low 5.3 fantasy points. He turned the ball over three times, fumbling once and throwing two interceptions, while throwing for only 177 yards and one touchdown. He also failed to offer much on the ground, rushing for just 2 yards on two carries, the first time this season he was held to single digit rushing yards. Watson wasn’t 100% healthy for the matchup, and it showed. He is hoping to bounce back in Week 7 against a Jaguars defense that allowed 40 points this past week.

Derek Carr

A video of Derek Carr appearing to be crying is circulating through the internet, and I can’t say I blame the guy. The Raiders offensive line offered Carr next to no protection in London against the Seahawks. Carr only thew for 142 yards and fumbled twice in the matchup. He was sacked a season high six times and when he wasn’t being brought to the ground by the Seahawks defenders, he was under intense pressure and forced to throw a quick dump off. He still completed 23-of-31 pass attempts but the Raiders offense was highly ineffective in their 27-3 loss to Seattle. Carr posted a season-low of 4.8 fantasy points this week.

Marcus Mariota

Mariota had a rough one on Sunday. The Titans QB was sacked more times than he managed to complete passes. In what was a historically bad performance from the Titans’ offensive line, Mariota was sacked 11 times and completed just 10 passes. He threw for 117 yards and fortunately did not turn the ball over, preventing an entirely disastrous fantasy performance. He picked up 25 yards on two carries as well, helping him reach 7.2 fantasy points. This was a game Mariota, and his owners, will likely try to erase from their memory. The Titans face the Chargers at Wembley Stadium in London next week.
