To say Week Six action went down to the wire would be an understatement, as one team scored a dramatic, come-from-behind victory to win by the smallest margin of the season. What else went down on Sunday besides Felix Baumgartner’s historic 24-mile, sound-barrier-busting space jump? Get the lowdown on this week’s fantasy football action below.
Robert Griffin III Runs Wild, Carries Team adidas to 112-80 Victory Over Team Under Armour
RGIII sure is living up to the hype. After being knocked out of Week Five action with concussion-like symptoms, the former Baylor QB stormed back in a major way, scoring a career-high 38 fantasy points for Team adidas and giving the brand its second win over Team Under Armour in as many games. Under Armour has now lost four straight after starting the season 2-0.
Team Reebok Completes Improbable Comeback to Defeat Team Nike, 117.86-117.66
Don’t call it a comeback, because we know that no lead is safe with Peyton Manning at the helm. Manning teamed up with TE Antonio Gates to erase a 55-point deficit and defeat Team Nike by two-tenths of a point. Reebok has won four consecutive games, while Team Nike drops to .500 on the year.
