NFL Featured Contest Recap: Week 16

Wide receivers and running backs had nice weekends, but top-name quarterbacks had a hard time in week 16.

Cam Newton, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers all had less than 16 fantasy points and turned the ball over in their teams losses. Eli Manning came out firing… to the Vikings defense, throwing three picks including one for a TD. Ben Roethlisberger struggled as well, throwing two interceptions and no touchdowns in a disappointing loss to the Ravens. On the other hand, Blake Bortles, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Stafford scored TDs a couple times each, earning upwards of 24 fantasy points.

But the pass-catchers and running backs were there to help everyone’s fantasy scores. DeAngelo Williams and Tim Hightower scampered into the end zone twice each for over 100 yards and north of 34 fantasy points. These two and six other running backs earned 20 fantasy points or more. Brandon Marshall was a beast per usual, racking up another 100+ yard game and two TDs. But the highlight of the weekend goes to Julio Jones, who completely Moss’d Luke Kuechly for a 70-yard TD to help Atlanta take down undefeated Carolina.
