Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a huge performance to kick off Week 10 with a 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football.
He put up a whopping 328 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions on 22-of-25 passing, bringing his season average up to 23 fantasy points per game. As NFL on Twitter noted, he had more touchdown passes than incompletions.
The league also posted highlights of the big night:
Few quarterbacks look more like a sure thing than Roethlisberger. Among players with at least 50 passing attempts, Patrick Mahomes, Matt Ryan and Ryan Fitzpatrick are the only ones who've averaged more fantasy points per game. And the Steelers are averaging 35.4 points during their five-game winning streak.
This looks like an offensive juggernaut.
The Panthers took the L on Thursday, but you can't pin that on Christian McCaffrey. The second-year running back went off for 138 yards from scrimmage and three total touchdowns.
The NFL shared video of his second receiving score:
McCaffrey is averaging 22.4 fantasy points per game in point-per-reception formats. Todd Gurley, Alvin Kamara, Melvin Gordon and James Conner are the only running backs who are averaging more.
And McCaffrey seems to be getting better. Over his last three games, he's averaging 30.4 PPR points.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees added another game to an ever-stronger MVP resume Sunday in a 51-14 trouncing of the Cincinnati Bengals.
Brees went 22-of-25 for 265 yards passing, three touchdowns and no picks.
The NFL shared highlights of the blowout:
Following his big day, Brees is 235-of-304 for 2,601 yards, 21 touchdowns and one interception on the year. His passer rating is 123.8. The single-season record is Aaron Rodgers' 122.5 in 2011.
Nick Chubb's 176 rushing yards, 33 receiving yards and two total touchdowns were a huge part of the Cleveland Browns' 28-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
The league posted video of one of his scores, a 92-yard touchdown run:
Cleveland's switch to Chubb as the lead running back was a good (and probably overdue) move. He's had that role for four games. And he's put up 406 rushing yards and four total touchdowns in those contests.
In 2016, David Johnson broke out with 25.5 PPR points per game. Then, 2017 was lost to a wrist injury.
This season has been solid but nowhere near his 2016 level. Coming into Week 10, he was averaging 14.5 PPR points per game.
But this week, he looked every bit like the budding superstar he was two years ago, putting up 183 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in the Arizona Cardinals' 26-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Raise your hand if you had Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky pegged as one of 2018's top fantasy performers before this season kicked off.
After another 30-plus-point performance Sunday, Trubisky is exactly that.
He went 23-of-30 for 355 yards passing, three touchdowns and no interceptions. And oh, he ran for a score.
The NFL shared video of one of the passing touchdowns:
Trubisky is averaging 22.5 fantasy points per game—way up from the 11.2 he averaged as a rookie—which is in the top 10 for 2018 quarterbacks.
In Sunday's second slate of games, the Green Bay Packers dominated the Miami Dolphins, 31-12. Running back Aaron Jones was a big reason why.
He went off for 145 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground, adding another 27 yards on three catches as a receiver.
His 67-yard run in the first quarter was shared by the NFL:
Coming into today, Jones had a grand total of 50 fantasy points. He added 28 in standard leagues on Sunday alone.
If the Packers are going to get back into the playoff picture, they'll need a balanced attack to take some pressure off Aaron Rodgers. More games like this from Jones would help.
In the final game of the day, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott led the way in a 27-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Elliott went off for 151 yards and one touchdown on the ground. He was big in the passing game too, hauling in six catches for 36 yards and another touchdown.
The league posted video of the game-winning score from Zeke:
In standard scoring leagues, Sunday's output matched a season high for Elliott. For PPR, it was his best performance of 2018, bringing his average to nearly 20.
And it couldn't have come at a better time. Sunday's win pulled the Cowboys to 4-5 on the season, even with the defending champion Eagles and a one win behind the sixth-place Minnesota Vikings.
A loss this week would've all but closed the door on a shot at the playoffs.
