Tua Tagovailoa, QB, MIA

466 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, 1 INT, 5 rushing yards, 28.1 points.

The Dolphins QB threw for THREE TIMES as many yards against the Chargers as he did against them last year.

Aaron Jones, RB, GB

41 rushing yards, 86 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 25.7 points.

Had an excellent game against the Bears before suffering a hamstring injury in the third quarter.

Austin Ekeler, RB, LAC

117 rushing yards, 47 receiving yards, 1 TD, 24.4 points.

If there’s one thing Ekeler knows, it’s how to score touchdowns.

Tyreek Hill, WR, MIA

215 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns, 39 points.

Hill said his goal was to reach 2,000 yards this season, and he’s certainly off to a good start.

Brandon Aiyuk, WR, SF

129 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns, 28.9 points.

Often the forgotten man in San Francisco’s offense, Aiyuk will now remain fresh in opponents’ minds.

Hunter Henry, TE, NE

56 receiving yards, 1 touchdown, 14.1 points.

It’s been a tough week for tight ends, with only two scoring fantasy points in double figures before Sunday night.

Arizona Cardinals DEF

20 points allowed, 6 sacks, 1 INT, 2 fumbles recovered, 1 TD, 19 points.

Not exactly the first team you’d expect here, but they kept their fingers crossed for the Commanders with a narrow defeat.

Nick Folk, K, TEN

5 FGs, 18 points.


Joe Burrow, QB, CIN

82 passing yards, -1 rushing yard, 3.1 points.

Looked incredibly rusty in the harsh weather and ended up being torn down in the fourth quarter.

Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL

169 passing yards, 1 INT, 38 rushing yards, 1 fumble lost, 7.5 points.

Not exactly the kind of production we were expecting after offseason hype surrounding the new Air Raid.

Antonio Gibson, RB, WAS

9 rushing yards, 10 receiving yards, 1 fumble lost, 0.4 points.

Was clearly outgunned in the backfield by Brian Robinson, who outscored Gibson 20-4.

D’Andre Swift, RB, PHI

3 rushing yards, 0.8 points.

Even though Rashaad Penny was a healthy scratch, Swift only had two touches of the ball – a rush and a catch for the first few yards.

Tee Higgins, WR, CIN

0 receptions, 0 points.

With Burrow seemingly out of sorts, Higgins couldn’t name any of his eight targets.

Drake London, WR, ATL

0 receptions, 0 points.

New season, same lack of passes from Atlanta as London only had a single goal in the game.

Christian Kirk, WR, JAX

1 reception, 9 yards, 1.4 points.

Was a complete afterthought in the Jags passing game with one catch on three goals.

Dallas Goedert, TE, PHI

0 receptions, 0 points.

Was held without a catch and only had a single target against the Pats.

I hope you’ve started

Mac Jones only had two 300-yard passing games last season, but he got his first of 2023 in the opening game. His 25.1 fantasy points was the second most by a QB prior to Sunday night and he scored against one of the league’s strongest defenses, the Eagles.

– With all the hype surrounding Bijan Robinson after the Falcons drafted him in the first round, people forgot that Tyler Algeier had 1,000 yards as a rookie last season. Atlanta’s “backup” managed 94 yards and two touchdowns, surpassing Robinson.
