As we do after each week of NFL action, let’s take a look at the players who excelled in fantasy despite mainly being unowned.

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

1

QB - Teddy Bridgewater, Broncos (16.9%) - 334 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, 3 interceptions, 9 rushing yards, 1 fumble lost

The four turnovers look ugly on Bridgewater’s ledger, but he threw two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to still give him a productive fantasy outing. It ended up being his third-highest passing yardage total in 55 career starts, and it also was the third time he threw for at least three scores.

2

RB - Chris Evans, Bengals (2.0%) - 18 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 49 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown

With Samaje Perine on the Covid-19 list, Evans moved to second on Cincinnati’s running back depth chart. A sixth-round rookie, Evans received his first four carries and his first NFL touchdown on a 24-yard reception to start the scoring in the Bengals’ Week 6 win.
