Deshaun Watson – A first quarter fumble changed the game script in this matchup. The Texans played from behind and were limited in their attack without Will Fuller. The Patriots attempted to scheme DeAndre Hopkins out of the game, making it default for Watson to find success throwing. Watson added 40 yards on eight carries, but still scored just 11 fantasy points. Better days are ahead, so if you see a panicking Watson owner (who probably invested a high round pick in the young QB), make an offer. Watson is still a top 10 quarterback this season.

Kareem Hunt – Hunt scored 4.9 PPR points on Sunday, disappointing fantasy owners. According to 4for4.com’s T.J. Hernandez, Hunt saw 72.7% of the Chiefs backfield touches, ninth highest rate on Sunday. Slightly concerning was the lack of targets for Hunt (1), but Mahomes only attempted 27 throws, and the Chiefs had a lead for the majority of the game. Tyreek Hill scored three touchdowns, two from distance, and one at the goal line. This effectively shortened two Chiefs drives, and stole a goal line touch from Hunt. I expect the Chiefs to be more balanced in the future, and Hunt is still a top 10 RB.

Corey Davis – Of Marcus Mariota’s 17 throws to wide receivers on Sunday, 76% of them went to Davis. He recorded 12.2 PPR points, but saw 13 targets. With Delanie Walker out, Davis should see as much volume as he can handle. He’s a WR2 with upside right now, but you can likely get him cheaper. Dynasty players are aware of Davis and he may be more expensive in dynasty, but I’m still attempting to buy before he becomes a true WR1.

Trey Burton – Burton had a tough matchup against the Packers who allowed more than 10 PPR points to tight ends only four times last season. Burton recorded just one catch for fifteen yards, but was second on the team in targets (6) in a game where the Bears held a lead most of the first half. Burton was one of the most hyped TEs coming into the year, and I haven’t lost faith in him. I’m buying where I can.
