Week 4 fantasy football #KABOOM winners

Print

Each week, we at NFL fantasy like to bestow #KABOOM awards on the top players at each position that deliver monster performances for their fantasy owners. Week 4 had no shortage of star performers and surprises, but there were a few players in particular who deserve the nod for dominating their position: Eli Manning, Matt Asiata, Steve Smith Sr. and Larry Donnell.

Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants -- 32.10 fantasy points

Well, well, well, look who decided to once again show up on the fantasy radar. After weeks of struggling and seemingly not having a full grasp of coordinator Ben McAdoo's offense, Manning and the Giants burst onto the scene in a big way Thursday night in Washington. Manning threw four touchdown passes and ran in another to rack up over 30 fantasy points for the first time of his career.

Matt Asiata, RB, Minnesota Vikings -- 28.00 fantasy points

Adrian Peterson left some gargantuan shoes for Asiata to fill, but no one expected him to fill them quite like he did on Sunday. Asiata racked up over 100 scrimmage yards and found the end zone three times, totaling 28 fantasy points to help the Vikings defeat the Atlanta Falcons.

Steve Smith Sr., WR, Baltimore Ravens -- 25.90 fantasy points

Steve Smith Sr. certainly talked the talk leading up to his revenge game against the Panthers. And when it came to game time, he walked the walk as well. Smith tallied 139 receiving yards and two touchdowns when it was all said and done. Point made, Steve, point made.

Larry Donnell, TE, New York Giants -- 23.40 fantasy points

Many fantasy owners were wondering if Donnell could keep up his production as a viable starting tight end in fantasy. Donnell proved that he isn't going anywhere anytime soon when he hauled in three touchdown passes on Thursday night. Donnell is currently the fourth-most targeted tight end in the NFL, and that doesn't figure to change any time soon.
