Monday Night Football Recap


That's a wrap. Ravens and Chargers are your MNF Week 1 Winners.

Final: Ravens 44, Bengals 13
Final: Chargers 22, Raiders 14
Fantasy Recap:

Baltimore
  • Joe Flacco: 21/29 299 yards, 2 TD 0 INT (Looked solid. Great arm strength.)
  • Ray Rice: 10 carries 68 yards, 2 TDs, 3 catches 25 yards (Every bit the #1.5 Fantasy Back)
  • Torrey Smith: 2 catches 57 yards, 1 carry 13 yards (Ravens' #1 receiver - don't panic)
  • Anquan Boldin: 4 catches 63 yards 1 TD, 1 carry 3 yards (A good flex play)
  • Jacoby Jones: 3 catches 46 yards (had a good drive - clearly not reliable)
  • Dennis Pitta 5 catches 73 yards, 1 TD (Dickson makes him a wildcard)
Cincinnati
  • Andy Dalton: 22/37 221 yards, 0 TDs 1 INT (Tough start, but has 3 good receivers going forward)
  • AJ Green: 5 catches 70 yards (Not a stellar day, but clearly highly targeted)
  • Benjarvus Green-Ellis: 18 carries 91 yards 1 TD, 1 catch 4 yards (Fantasy owners should be pleased with his performance. Approaching RB1 territory)
  • Jermaine Gresham: 3 catches 30 yards (Disappointing. Lot of TE depth out there to supplant him on fantasy rosters)
  • Andrew Hawkins: 8 catches 86 yards (Nothing like a big MNF game to put you on people's radars)
Oakland
  • Carson Palmer: 32/46 297 yards, 1 TD, 0 INTs (A solid fantasy day, due to a ton of throws. Poor man's Drew Brees?)
  • Darren McFadden: 15 rushes 32 yards, 13 catches 86 yards (A very Forte-esque day. He's every PPR player's dream RB.)
  • Darrius Heyward-Bey: 3 catches 43 yards (It was a ragged day, but Heyward-Bey had opportunities to shine. Continues to disappoint - perhaps the most overpaid player in the NFL.)
  • Rod Streater: 4 catches 27 yards, 1 TD (Could be a serviceable deep-league flex play, but this Raiders receiving core isn't appealing so far.)
  • Brandon Myers 5 catches 61 yards (You can find better TEs than Myers, but today's day wasn't awful.)
San Diego
  • Phillip Rivers: 24/33, 231 yards, 1 TD, 0 INTs (The lack of turnovers is encouraging.)
  • Antonio Gates: 4 catches 43 yards (Another injury scare. Surprised?)
  • Robert Meachem: 2 catch 49 yards (Caught a bomb. Then disappeared.)
  • Malcolm Floyd: 4 catches 66 yards, 1 TD (Looked very good. Has the egde for #1 Chargers receiver)
  • Ronnie Brown: Gross. Who really cares, right? Get healthy already, Mathews. Brinkley had a bad running day - 1.2 ypc - but 3 catches for 28 yards. Brinkley may get the start next week if Mathews can't play.
