PPR explosion alert: Rams receiver Danny Amendola has 12 catches for 133 yards and a touchdown against the Washington Redskins...in the first half.
The NFL record for receptions is 21, set by Brandon Marshall in 2009. Amendola will have a chance to break that mark with a solid second half. Either way, he's had a monster fantasy day.
Another touchdown for Robert Griffin III. In the second quarter, the No. 2 overall pick went deep to Leonard Hankerson for a 66-yard touchdown, putting Washington up 21-6 over the Rams.
Griffin III now has 110 yards passing, 15 yards rushing and two total scores.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III ran in his first NFL touchdown Sunday in St. Louis on a five-yard scamper.
Griffin has now thrown for 30 yards and rushed for 15 more through the first quarter. The Redskins lead, 14-3.
The Houston Texans running-back duo of Arian Foster and Ben Tate combined for a whopping 244 yards in Sunday's 27-7 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Foster ran for 110 yards and added 37 more receiving, while Tate rushed for 97. The two combined for three scores. Both backs remain valuable in any league as long as the touches and production remain as consistent as they have been through two games.
Mark Sanchez continued his terrific start to the 2012 by leading the New York Jets to a first-quarter touchdown in Pittsburgh.
Sanchez hit Santonio Holmes on a 12-yard score to finish off the drive. He now has four touchdown passes in 2012.
Top fantasy performances from the early games:
Eli Manning, Giants: 510 passing yards, three touchdowns, three interceptions.
Andy Dalton, Bengals: 318 passing yards, three touchdowns, one interception.
Reggie Bush, Dolphins: 26 rushes, 172 yards, two touchdowns.
Arian Foster/Ben Tate, Texans: 184 yards rushing, three touchdowns.
C.J. Spiller, Bills: 180 (123 rushing) total yards, two touchdowns.
Dwayne Bowe, Chiefs: Eight catches, 102 yards, two touchdowns.
Cam Newton, Panthers: 253 yards passing, one touchdown; 71 yards rushing, one touchdown.
Darren Sproles, Saints: 13 catches, 128 yards.
Hakeem Nicks, Giants: 10 catches, 199 yards, one touchdown.
Victor Cruz, Giants: 11 catches, 179 yards, one touchdown.
Vincent Jackson, Bucs: Five catches, 128 yards, one touchdown.
Trent Richardson, Browns: 145 total yard (109 rushing), two touchdowns.
Brent Celek, Eagles: Eight catches, 157 yards.
The top performance from a tight end in the early games clearly goes the Eagles' Brent Celek, who now has eight catches for 157 yards.
The yardage total is a franchise record for a tight end and Celek's career high.
In an otherwise lost day for the Kansas City Chiefs, receiver Dwayne Bowe caught two second-half touchdowns.
Bowe has eight catches for 102 yards and two scores in a blowout in Buffalo.
Another touchdown toss for Eli Manning, who has now broken the Giants franchise record for passing yards. He has 436 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions today, as the Giants now lead the Buccaneers late in the fourth quarter.
Eli Manning revived a dead fantasy day (and the Giants hopes of not starting 0-2) when he hit Victor Cruz for an 80-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Manning is now nearing 400 passing yards with two scores.
Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has left Jacksonville's game against the Texans with a leg injury, and he's been replaced by backup Chad Henne.
Gabbert is not likely to return.
The 2011 first-round pick was poor before the injury, completing just 7-of-19 passes for 53 yards and one touchdown. The Jaguars are currently down, 24-7.
Raiders receiver Denarius Moore has been replaced in Miami after dealing with cramping issues.
He currently has three catches for 67 yards.
Potentially devastating injury news for the Eagles, who lost center Jason Kelce to a really bad-looking knee injury.
It's officially being called a sprain, but replays showed that Kelce likely torn ligaments in his right knee as he buckled from the outside in.
Receiver Jeremy Maclin was also carted off in obvious pain. He's since returned to the sidelines, but his status is up in the air.
Chargers running back news: Curtis Brinkley is starting for San Diego Sunday in place of Ryan Mathews.
Ronnie Brown started last week's win over the Oakland Raiders, but looked completely overmatched. If you're in need of a last-second running back, Brinkley isn't the worst option.
Browns running back Trent Richardson has his second touchdown of the day, this one a 23-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Weeden.
Richardson now has 124 total yards and two scores.
Dolphins running back Reggie Bush now has two second-half touchdown runs, including a 65-yarder moments ago. He's well over 100 yards rushing at 129 on 17 carries.
