In today’s Fantasy Life Newsletter, presented by SuperDraft Fantasy’s new Super 15 game, we recap Thursday Night Football and take a close look at the full practice report from yesterday. It's 10/1. Take it away, Peter Overzet…
Nothing says Thursday Night Football quite like C.J. Uzomah popping off for 5 receptions, 95 yards and 2 TDs.
The Bengals defeated the winless Jags last night 24-21 in what ended up being a fairly entertaining game.
Carlos Hyde was a surprise late scratch, which gave James Robinson plenty of runway. He finished with 18 carries for 78 yards and 2 TDs, although he had very little work in the pass game (1 reception).
Of course, we couldn’t leave the game fully unscathed. D.J. Chark fractured his ankle early in the first quarter and was carted off the field. His season is likely over. Joe Mixon also got banged up at the end of the game, but he should be fine with 10 days rest.
In Chark’s absence, my guy and 2nd year breakout candidate Laviska Shenault stepped up (6 receptions for 99 yards). Tavon Austin also saw a bunch of snaps with Chark off the field and ran 21 routes. He’ll likely find his way onto some waiver articles next week.
