Week 2 Heroes & Zeros

This was a great week to start…

Philip Rivers, Chargers – Well, bust my chops.  Rivers had another strong afternoon, with 419 yards and 3 TDs, without a turnover.

Sam Bradford, Rams – Amassed 352 passing yards, 3 TDs and 25 rushing yards, plus an INT.
Robert Griffin III, Redskins – It wasn’t pretty, but his 320-yard, 3 TD, 1 INT afternoon was still very salty.

Marshawn Lynch, Seahawks – Was in full Beast Mode with 98 rushing yards and 2 TDs, plus 3 catches for 37 yards and another score.
James Starks, Packers – Took over for Lacy and collected 132 rushing and 36 receiving yards, plus a TD.
Knowshon Moreno, Broncos – Made his case for the lead job with 93 rushing yards and 2 TDs, plus 3 catches for 14 yards.

Eddie Royal, Chargers – His 7 receptions produced 90 yards and a TD trifecta.

DeSean Jackson, Eagles – Grabbed 9 balls for 193 yards and a score.
Julio Jones, Falcons – Reeled in 11 passes for 182 yards and a TD.
Pierre Garcon, Redskins – Brought down 8 passes for 143 yards and a score.
Dez Bryant, Cowboys – Showed no ill effects from his ankle injury with 9 catches for 141 yards and 1 TD.
Jordy Nelson, Packers – Only 3 receptions produced 66 yards and 2 TDs.
James Jones, Packers – His 11-catch, 178-yard outing was gold in PPR leagues, though he lost a fumble.

Martellus Bennett, Bears – Had 7 receptions for 76 yards and 2 scores.
Jimmy Graham, Saints – Paid off his owners’ investment with 10 catches for 179 yards and a TD.

This was a great week to play against…

Colin Kaepernick, 49ers – Had his worst day as a starter, with just 127 yards passing, 87 rushing, no scores, a fumble and 3 INTs.
Tom Brady, Patriots – When you get just 185 yards and 1 TD out of Brady, it’s a good day.

Eddie Lacy, Packers – Left with a concussion after a 10-yard run.
David Wilson, Giants – Didn’t fumble, but didn’t even gain 20 yards either.
Maurice Jones-Drew, Jaguars – Just 27 yards and a 1-yard catch before exiting.
Frank Gore, 49ers – Totaled 30 yards from scrimmage.
