How to bounce back from fantasy playoff disasters
Is that negative fantasy points for Dez Bryant? The Drew Brees score must be a typo. Who got hurt? How bad? And that was the first week of the playoffs?!
Some of us had a rough weekend. If you’re were on bye like me, you weren’t directly affected by the torturous fantasy output of Week 14, but it certainly scared you. What are we supposed to take from this?
Each week I find answers from every corner of Pro Football Focus. This week I’m going to point you in the direction of some of our best content and the stats you need to know. Week 15 is do or die. This isn’t the time to mess around.
The Dez Bryant problem
Last night Dez Bryant caught only one of his eight targets for 10 yards and a fumble. Let that sink in for a second.
Every week the PFF Analysis team puts together a quick article “5 Stats You Need to Know” for each week of the season. This week they led with warranted praise for the New York Giants defense. Dak Prescott only completed two of his eight throws for 17 yards and recorded a 0.0 passer rating when throwing into CB Janoris Jenkins’ coverage. Both Jenkins and Giants’ Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are among the NFL’s 10 highest PFF graded cornerbacks in the league.
