Le’Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers: His 39.5 topped all running backs on Sunday and represented the third-best single-game total of his career
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston Texans: Like his 35.9 PPR points, it was the fourth time in his career that he had scored at least 35, and in each of the four he had a different quarterback throwing to him.
Jonathan Stewart, RB, Carolina Panthers: He scored 28.3 fantasy points, That’s quite a difference from Stewart’s production six weeks ago, when he scored minus-1.9 PPR fantasy points on 11 rushing attempts in one of the worst games by a running back in history.
Davante Adams, WR, Packers: The Packers had several fantasy stars in their 27-21 overtime victory at Cleveland, but Adams was the one who scored the game-tying touchdown with 17 seconds remaining as well as the winning touchdown in overtime. Those two plays alone were worth 16.6 PPR fantasy points, helping push his final score to 30.4.
Todd Gurley II, RB, Los Angeles Rams: What a game this was, and while Gurley’s team ultimately lost, 28.5 PPR fantasy points.It was his best single-game total since Week 4 (28.5), and gave him what was a 34.8-point lead over Le’Veon Bell for the top seasonal score among running backs before Bell’s big “Sunday Night Football” performance. Gurley has 288.7 for the season, putting him on pace for 355.3, which would be the eighth-best total in history by a player aged 23 or younger.
Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers: For the 20th time in his 114 career games, Brown scored at least 30 PPR fantasy points, making him only the 12th offensive player and fifth wide receiver to have that many. Brown’s 32.3 points were second only to Hopkins’ 35.9 on Sunday.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers: He attempted a whopping 66 passes and accumulated 506 passing yards, his record-setting third career game with at least 500 yards. He has also scored at least 28 fantasy points in three of his past four games.
Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons: His disappointing 2017 season continued on Thursday night with what was his worst single-game fantasy score all year (6.84)
Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins: (ranked sixth among quarterbacks), Unfortunately, he delivered only 8.84 fantasy points, his second-worst total of 2017 Cardinals, who have allowed 15.2 fantasy points per game since their Week 8 bye, in Week 15, then the Denver Broncos in Week 16.
