Punch Drunk Wonderland

Mr. Wendy’s Look Back at Week 1

Our first week of fantasy football  is in the books. What a week!  These are my week 1 MVP’S.

QB – Marcus Mariota (Tennessee Titans)

Move over Peyton Manning! The kid tossed up FOUR Touch downs in his first ever NFL start. 81.3 completion percentage was nice as well. Anyone else see a top 10 QB in the making?

RB – Matt Forte (Chicago Bears)

So much for all the talk about him losing some catches. 5 catches and 24 runs. 141 yards on the ground with a TD! Wish I had him on a few more of my teams.

WR – Julio Jones (Atlanta Falcons)

9 catches on 11 targets for 141 yards and TWO Touchdowns. Monster first half.

TE – Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Tampa Bay Bucs)

The week of the rookies. Heck…big week for tight ends. 5 catch day with 110 yards and TWO touchdowns! I went with the rookie because of his big plays. 3 catches for over 20 yards. LOVE IT in the big play leagues.

KR – Tyler Lockett (Seattle Seahawks)

Wins the day here. It’s the week of the rookie! He is EXPLOSIVE!

PK – Brandon McManus (Denver Broncos)

Made 2 kicks over 50 yards. Money baby! 4 FG’s total.

PN – Dustin Colquitt (Kansas City Chiefs)

Nailed 4 punts inside the 20! Big day for sure. If your league uses Punters he helped your team for sure.

DT – Aaron Donald (St. Louis Rams)

DT required leagues have a gold mine if you’re lucky enough to have him. Teamed with J. J. Watt would be scary.  Two sack game with five tackles.

DE – J.J. Watt (Houston Texans)

Of course. Should I pencil him in here for the year? Two sacks and a mere 9 tackles with SIX of those for a LOSS!

LB – Preston Smith (Washington Redskins)

Big play league guy here. TWO FORCED FUMBLES, 1 sack, 2 tackles and a fumble recovery.

CB – Josh Norman (Carolina Panthers)

4 tackles, interception for a TD, forced fumble, 2 passes defended, special teams TD, no doubt about the impact he had for someones IDP team.

S – Glover Quinn (Detroit Lions)

7 tackle game 31 yard INT returned for a TD and 2 passes defended.


Don’t forget your waiver runs and get hose lineups ready. Good luck in Week 2.
