If you went into your playoffs riding high with Rob Gronkowski, Adrian Peterson, Reggie Bush, or anyone in the Lions-Eagles snow bowl, the week didn’t get off to a great start for you. However, there were some people whose week 14 got off to a great start. These are the top scorers from the 1:00 games who have their owners set up for a victorious week:
Lesean McCoy-RB-Philadelphia Eagles
McCoy frolicked in the snow going for 217 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Lions. He’s been a number one running back all year and thrilled his owners in this first week of the playoffs.
Andrew Luck-QB-Indianapolis Colts
Although the Colts went down to the Bengals, Luck had the better fantasy football day throwing for four touchdowns and 326 yards. He added 32 yards rushing on his two rushing attempts.
Andy Dalton-QB-Cincinnati Bengals
To help his team beat Luck Dalton threw for three touchdowns and ran for another. He totaled 275 yards on 24 of 35 while rushing for 11 yards. He definitely can get fantasy points when the Bengals open up their offense.
Jason Campbell-QB-Cleveland Browns
Campbell was excellent against New England throwing for 391 yards and three touchdowns against the Patriots in one of the craziest games of the season. Campbell has had some excellent games this year, and is a solid QB2 option.
Jamaal Charles-RB-Kansas City Chiefs
Charles ran for 151 yards and a touchdown and added another touchdown on his two catches for eight yards. Charles and McCoy delivered for their owners like they have all season.
Kansas City Chiefs D/ST
The Chiefs defense took the ball away twice, allowed just 10 points to Washington, and racked up six sacks. As long as you get fantasy points for return TD’s, they scored two touchdowns as well.
Josh Gordon-WR-Cleveland Browns
Gordon continued his torrid play falling short of his 3rd straight 200 yard-game but finishing with 151 yards and a touchdown. He’s a WR1 regardless of matchup and quarterback for the rest of the season.
Tom Brady-QB-New England Patriots
Brady was absolutely horrible for the first half of the game, but turned it on the New England’s crazy comeback win. Brady totaled 418 yards with a pair of touchdowns bit did throw an interception early.
Da’Rick Rogers-WR-Indianapolis Colts
Rogers had a breakout week getting his first catches of the year. He finished with a pair of and 107 yards with a pair of touchdowns. Rogers is an undrafted free agent, but could fill a nice role for the Colts going forward.
Marcel Reece-RB-Oakland Raiders
When Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were declared inactive, I tweeted that I liked Reece as a flex play sleeper. I had no idea that he would do as well as he did, though rushing for 123 yards and a touchdown while adding 38 yards on a pair of catches.
Shane Vereen-RB-New England Patriots
Vereen was a PPR monster catching 12 passes for New England and stepping in as a #1 option after Gronk went down injured. Vereen ran for nine yards and a score, but his main contribution was his 12 catches for 153 yards.
Jordan Cameron-TE-Cleveland Browns
Cameron caught nine passes for 121 yards and what looked like the game-clinching score against New England. Cameron and the Browns got caught by the biggest Brady comeback, but he still helped his owners get off to a good start.
