- At long last, tight end Travis Kelce was cut loose, piling up 106 yards on six catches and two touchdowns. It’s reasonable to firmly place Kelce as the second best dynasty tight end behind Gronk.
- The man getting him the ball also had a good day with quarterback Alex Smith going 22 of 33 for 243 yards and three touchdowns. Smith will never sniff QB1 territory but could be a serviceable QB2.
- Running back Jamaal Charles had a decent day by his standards with 57 yards on the ground but five catches for 46 yards and a touchdown in the air. He’s still a solid RB1 in dynasty rankings, especially PPR.
- Linebacker Derrick Johnson had a big day with eight tackles, a pass defended and a sack. The middle linebacker is a safe LB1 in IDP dynasty leagues.
- Thanks to being behind big, the receiving game was the big fantasy beneficiary with DeAndre Hopkins going off for nine catches and 98 yards plus two touchdowns. This could be the norm for Hopkins but makes have a low-end dynasty WR1.
- The other stud for the Texans did it again with defensive end J.J. Watt racking up nine tackles and two sacks. He’s IDP’s #1 player no matter the format.
