Last Week’s Recap:
In Jacksonville, Big Ben and the Steelers cruised to an easy 27-3 victory, limiting Ben’s upside for fantasy production. Next in Houston, the Patriots’ comeback bid fell short as Cam Newton had 365 yards passing but only one score. Lastly, Justin Herbert ripped apart the Jets’ atrocious defense to the tune of 375 yards and three touchdowns.
On Monday night, Tom Brady continued to struggle in primetime with two turnovers, while the Bucs’ lost to the Rams. Surprisingly, Ryan Tannehill and the Titans left Baltimore with an overtime victory. Clearly, the added playing time helped because Tannehill posted his first 20 point fantasy performance since Week 6. Sadly, Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending knee injury in defeat against the Washington Football Team. Hopefully, Burrow is able to make a speedy and healthy recovery.
