The views expressed in this article are not of the New York Football Giants but those of an independent Fantasy Expert.
Last Week: 4 catches, 24 yards, TD
Burleson, like most of the Detroit football team, didn’t seem to come alive until the fourth quarter, where he caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford. Being targeted nine times, only second to Megatron’s 13, Burleson put together an impressive performance that also included 22 rushing yards on two carries.
Sam Bradford QB Rams
Last Week: 349 Total Yards, TD
Bradford threw all over the struggling Miami secondary with ease, passing for a season high 315 yards through the air. Though Miami stopped Steven Jackson in the run game, they forgot about Bradford’s ability, and he managed to gain 34 yards on four carries and score a one-yard touchdown.
DeMarco Murray RB Cowboys
Last Week: 97 total yards
Murray was finding plenty of room to run against the Baltimore Ravens defense. The only thing that stopped him was an injury in the third quarter. Murray was limited from then on and possibly may be out for a few weeks, though that didn’t stop him from having one of his best outings of the year.
