The Cleveland Browns have benched rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer in favor of Kevin Hogan to start the second half against the Jets.
Ty Montgomery, RB, Packers: Forgive him his mere 4.1 PPR and 3.1 non-PPR fantasy points, as it was remarkable that Montgomery was able to play at all after breaking multiple ribs in Week 4, the matchup wasn’t an easy one and he played only limited snaps (20). His fantasy managers recognized this in advance, however, starting him in only 39.3 percent of ESPN leagues, down significantly from his 94.5 percent rate in Week 4. Perhaps Montgomery will feel stronger and handle a greater workload come Week 7 against the Saints, though it’s possible that he’ll be closer to full strength only after the Week 8 bye.
Chris Hogan, WR, Patriots: While Gronkowski had an outstanding game, Hogan’s day was rather quiet, as he managed just 2.9 PPR fantasy points on four targets against the Jets. That was the worst score of any of Hogan’s six games this season, and it snapped a streak of four straight games with at least one touchdown and 17 PPR fantasy points.
Defensive end Benson Mayowa ran in to assist with the potential sack and made contact with Rodgers a split second after he ditched the ball toward the right sideline. The referee Terry McAulay, deeming the play egregious, slapped him with a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty.
The penalty moved the Packers out of the shadow of their own end zone and jump-started a Green Bay drive that pushed into Dallas territory. Cowboys’ head coach Jason Garrett was, let’s say, displeased with the call.
