Studs and Duds: NFL Week 15

By Brett Malamud

Here’s week 15’s edition of Studs and Duds:

Stud: Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants

Beckham Jr. had a game that has propelled him to be the favorite for offensive rookie of the year. The Giants rookie had 12 catches for 143 yards and three touchdowns against the Redskins in week 15.

Dud: Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

Rodgers failed to throw a touchdown pass against the Bills, angering fantasy owners in the midst of their playoffs.

Stud: Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys

Bryant returned to form on Sunday with six catches for 114 yards and three touchdowns.

Dud: Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals have been winning via the ground game, but Andy Dalton’s numbers have dropped dramatically. Dalton had just 117 passing yards and threw an interception against the Browns.

Stud: Jeremy Hill, Cincinati Bengals 

Just as I said, the Bengals have been winning games via the ground, and Hill has been a major part of that. In week 15, Hill took 25 carries for 148 yards and two touchdowns.

Dud: New York Jets

The Jets won. So why are they on the duds list? Well, a loss would have put them in line for the second pick in the draft. However, the win dropped them to the sixth pick, and they are likely out of the running for Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. It’s not a good time to be a Jets fan.

Stud: Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints

Brees torched the Chicago Bears in their own stadium. The Saints QB finished the game with 375 passing yards and three touchdowns.

Studs and Duds: NFL Week Ten

By Brett Malamud

I was pretty impressed in many of this week’s performances. Of course, with great success from your team comes great failure from your opponent. Here’s week ten’s edition of Studs and Duds:

Stud: Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks

Beast mode is an understatement as Lynch was phenomenal against the Giants. He had 21 carries for 140 yards and four touchdowns. His fantasy owners must have been happy as he scored 40 points this week in ESPN standard leagues.

Dud: Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals

Dalton was awful on Thursday Night Football. He completed 10-of-33 passes and finished the night with just 86 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions. He’ll try to refocus for next week’s him matchup against the Saints.

Stud: Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers 

Rodgers torched the Chicago Bears on national television Sunday night. He threw six touchdowns, with all six coming in the first half. He was pulled in the third quarter.

Dud: Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers

Brown’s numbers dropped off this week. He caught eight passes for 74 yards, which isn’t really that bad. Well why is he on the duds list then? Oh, that’s right. Brown had two lost fumbles, giving him just three fantasy points for the day in ESPN standard leagues

Stud: Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos

Were you expecting anything else? Manning threw five touchdown passes in the Broncos’ rout of the Oakland Raiders.

Dud: Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers

Newton, who hadn’t thrown a touchdown pass since week 7, finally threw one to kelvin Benjamin for a score. The only problem? The Panthers were so far out of reach that the game didn’t matter anymore. Newton threw three interceptions and lost a fumble in a very shaky performance in week 10. He’ll return to Carolina to face a favorable matchup with the Atlanta Falcons in week 11.

Stud: Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys

After two straight games that had Bryant with less than 35 yards receiving, Dez came alive on Sunday in London. Facing the Jacksonville Jaguars, Bryant hauled in six catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns. He’ll head into the bye week this week.

Stud: New York Jets 

Finally! The Jets took it to the red-hot Pittsburgh Steelers and came away with a 20-13 win for just their second win of the season. They’ll have a bye in week 11.
