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 11 had no shortage of star performers and surprises, but there were a few players in particular who deserve the nod for dominating their position: Aaron Rodgers, Jonas Gray, Mike Evans and Coby Fleener.
Rodgers really wasn't joking when he told Packer fans to relax after the team's Week 3 loss to the Detroit Lions. The Packers have been on fire in recent weeks, particularly at home where Rodgers has thrown 29 touchdowns since his last interception.
Boy, that escalated quickly. Gray received 38 carries Sunday night for 199 rushing yards and four touchdowns. His 43.90 fantasy points were the most by a running back this season. I still like Gray for the rest of the season, but the threat of #Belitricks is always present
Holy Mike Evans, Batman! Over the last three weeks, Evans has notched 458 receiving yards and five touchdown receptions, highlighted by his Week 11 outburst where he recorded 209 yards and two touchdowns. It's kind of a three-horse race right now for Offensive Rookie of the Year between Evans, Kelvin Benjamin and Sammy Watkins, but Evans might be pulling away if he keeps this up.
With Dwayne Allen sidelined for most of Sunday night's game with an ankle injury, Fleener picked up the slack and emerged as one of Andrew Luck's best pass-catching targets on the night. In a week where Rob Gronkowski only scored one touchdown and Jimmy Graham was quiet, it left the door wide open for a random tight end to take the #KABOOM crown, and that's just what Fleener did.
