NFL Tigers - Week 4

Deshaun Watson was a surprise scratch from the Browns lineup last weekend due to a bruised shoulder. His presence was sorely missed in a 28-3 loss to the Ravens in a game the Browns had previously been favored in by 3. The word is Deshaun should be ready to play next week after recovering during the Browns’ bye this weekend. There were, however, some notable performances in the NFL from Clemson alumns last weekend. Several Tiger Pros made the trip across the pond to play in London last week, and a few stuck around for another game this morning. Before they kick off again in London, here’s a recap of the Tiger Pro performances from Week 4.

NFL: London Games-Atlanta Falcons at Jacksonville Jaguars Peter van den Berg-USA TODAY Sports

Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne, Jr., Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars pulled out a comfortable 23-7 win over the Falcons in front of a capacity crowd at Wembley Stadium in London last week. Lawrence put in another solid performance completing 76.7% of his passes for 207 yards while rushing 8 times for 42 yards. He connected with Calvin Ridley for a 30-yard score in his lone touchdown pass of the day and had no interceptions. [Total fantasy points: 16.48]

Etienne continued his dual threat production. He led the Jaguars with 20 carries for 55 yards on the ground and caught all three of his targets for 17 yards. The Jaguars will need Lawrence, Etienne and company to be crisp on Sunday as they face a hot Bills team coming off of a dominating performance over the Dolphins, who had put up 70 points in Week 3. [Total fantasy points: 10.2]

Next up: Bills on Sunday, 10/8 in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London (BUF -4.5)

DeAndre Hopkins, Tennessee Titans

Hopkins led all Titans receivers for the second week in a row pulling in 4 catches for 63 yards, highlighted by a 38-yard reception from Titans QB Ryan Tannehill. The Titans handed the Bengals their third loss of the year (27-3 final score), pulling themselves back up to .500 in the process. Hopkins won this WRU battle against Tee Higgins. However, Higgins unfortunately left the game in the first half after suffering a fractured rib, and he will miss the Bengals’ Week 5 game against the Cardinals in Glendale. Nuk and company will head to Indianapolis today to face off against the 2-2 Colts. I wouldn’t be surprised if Hopkins puts in one of his best performances of the year as he continues to get healthy and boost his production in the process. [Total fantasy points: 10.3]

Next up: Colts on Sunday, 10/8 in Indianapolis (TEN -2.5)

Bryan Bresee, New Orleans Saints

Bresee had his best game of the year so far in the Saints’ 26-9 loss to Tampa Bay. He finished with 4 tackles (3 solo) including 3 tackles for loss and a sack. Not a bad day at the office. Bresee has an opportunity to follow in fellow Tiger Christian Wilkins’ footsteps if he can help lead his team to victory over New England on the road this week. [Total fantasy points: 8.5]

Next up: Patriots on Sunday, 10/8 in Foxboro (NE -1.0)

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

K’Von Wallace, Arizona Cardinals

Wallace finished second in tackles for the Cardinals (8 total, 4 solo) in a tough 35-16 loss to the undefeated 49ers last week in which Christian McCaffrey gashed Arizona’s defense for 4 touchdowns and 177 total yards. Arizona looks to get back on track this week against a surprisingly struggling Bengals squad that hasn’t yet found its groove. [Total fantasy points: 6.0]

Next up: Bengals on Sunday, 10/8 in Glendale (CIN -3.0)

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Isaiah Simmons, New York Giants

Simmons had a solid performance for the struggling Giants (1-3), logging 4 solo tackles including a tackle for loss against the Seahawks. Unfortunately, it doesn’t get any easier for the Giants over the next two games as New York travels to Miami to take on the Dolphins and then to Buffalo to face the Bills. [Total fantasy points: 5.0]

Next up: Dolphins on Sunday, 10/8 in Miami (MIA -12.5)

Ray-Ray McCloud, III, San Francisco 49ers

Ray-Ray saw action on both offense and special teams for the undefeated 49ers in a 35-16 victory over the Cardinals last week. He was targeted 2 times and caught both passes for 22 yards. He also had an 18-yard kickoff return and 2 punt returns for 24 yards. There is no denying McCloud is a talented, versatile athlete, and he could be a difference maker on Sunday night if he can flip the field in the 49ers’ favor on special teams or break a big one receiving. [Total fantasy points: 4.2]

Next up: Cowboys on Sunday, 10/8 in San Francisco/Santa Clara (SF -3.5)

Jayron Kearse, Dallas Cowboys

Kearse had 2 solo tackles and 2 passes defended in a dominating victory over New England last weekend. The Dallas defense is giving up only 7.25 points per game this year, and they’ll need their A game this weekend when Jayron and the Cowboys take on the 49ers on Sunday Night Football in a battle for NFC supremacy. [Total fantasy points: 4.0]

Next up: 49ers on Sunday, 10/8 in San Francisco/Santa Clara (SF -3.5)

Tee Higgins, Cincinnati Bengals: 2 receptions for 19 yards. [Total fantasy points: 3.9]
