As we do each week, let’s take a look at the football players who performed well despite being mostly unowned.

One quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be highlighted every week. The player must be owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues to be eligible.


QB - Sam Darnold, Panthers (9.0%) - 304 passing yards, 11 rushing yards, 2 rushing touchdowns

Now in his fourth season, Darnold already has set a career-high in 2021 with his three rushing touchdowns. He has gone over 300 yards passing in two straight games after not reaching that threshold in any of his previous 18 outings.


RB - Peyton Barber, Raiders (7.3%) - 111 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 3 receptions, 31 receiving yards

It was widely assumed that Kenyan Drake would receive the lion’s share of carries once Josh Jacobs would be out for Week 2 with an ankle injury (also missed Week 3). Instead, Barber had received 36 carries the past two games compared to Drake’s 15.
