On any given NFL weekend, many different players score touchdowns. Most of them are your standard fantasy football superstars, owned in every league. But others come out of nowhere to vulture touchdowns or beat a third-string cornerback repeatedly for a career-day. In fantasy, these are our That Helps No One champions. The players whose success leads to the imminent demise of countless fantasy teams. All season long, we'll be tracking and crowning a That Helps No One winner each week on NFL Fantasy LIVE. Below are the top candidates for Week 7.
Don't know who Marcus Easley is? Don't worry, not many do. That's because he lost his rookie season (2010) to a knee injury, and then was placed on IR again the following year when the team found out he had an irregular heartbeat. Easley's touchdown on Sunday came on just the third catch OF HIS CAREER, so it's hard to be too salty. So goon on you, Marcus Easley. Now on to the rest of the THNO candidates and some snarky analysis.
I spelled Hoomanawanui's name right on the first try without looking! Yay me!
I watch a lot of NFL games and know most of the players in the league. I didn't know Donteea Dye was a real person. If that's not worthy of a THNO win, I don't know what is.
Seasoned fantasy owners will remember Ryan Grant as the talented back who turned in a handful of great seasons for the Green Bay Packers form 2007-2009. This is not that Ryan Grant. This Ryan Grant is a second year wide receiver out of Tulane who just caught his first NFL touchdown. The more you know.
