Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs

Rejoice Travis Kelce fantasy owners! The Chiefs’ tight end had a massive game in KC’s 30-14 win over the Indianpolis Colts. He turned 10 targets into seven receptions, 101 yards and a touchdown. It was his first 100-yard effort of the season and ended a two-week scoring drought for the former Bearcat.

Parker Ehinger, Kansas City Chiefs

Ehinger started on the line for the Chiefs and played in 46 total snaps, 42 on offense and 12 on special teams. KC only rushed for 88 yards behind the line and Alex Smith and Nick Foles were sacked a combined three times.

Derek Wolfe, Denver Broncos

Wolfe was in on 73 percent of the defensive snaps for the Broncos, who pulled out a 27-19 win against the San Diego Chargers. Wolfe finished with three tackles in the victory.

Mike Windt, San Diego Chargers

Windt was on the losing end of that exchange, although the long-snapper played on only nine snaps, obviously all on special teams.

Kevin Huber, Cincinnati Bengals

Huber took a trip to merry old England and participated in the second tie in as many weeks in the NFL. The Bengals and Washington ended deadlocked at 27-27, while Huber punted five times and averaged 52.2 yards per boot. He also landed one punt inside the 20 and recorded a season-long punt of 61 yards.

Connor Barwin, Philadelphia Eagles

Barwin recorded a sack for the second-straight week and now has three total this season. Its too bad the Eagles let a golden opportunity slip away in a 29-23 overtime loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys. Barwin played on 53 defensive snaps, which accounted for 68 percent of Philadelphia’s total plays on D.

Brent Celek, Philadelphia Eagles

Celek did not record a reception but he played on 23 offensive snaps and 11 on special teams.

Jason Kelce, Philadelphia Eagles

Kelce started on the offensive line and played in 100 percent of the offensive snaps and also did some work on special teams (four snaps). The Eagles rushed for 97 yards in the overtime loss and Carson Wentz was sacked three times.
