Studs and Duds: Week 6

Diggs carries teams to victory


It was another bit of a topsy turvy week in the NFL. There were some big fantasy performances once again but several duds from top players. This made for some uneven fantasy performances. 

Passing games saw the most success with eight players hitting the 300-yard mark. Two quarterbacks had four-touchdown games. And 11 receivers hit the 100-yard mark and four had multiple touchdown games. 

Rushing games didn’t have near the success. The leading rusher was a quarterback for Week 6. There were just five backs that had 100-yard games with Chris Carson leading the way at 124 yards. It was a pretty down game from the running back position. 

So in all, it was another uneven week in fantasy land. Hopefully, you came out on the right side of things in Week 6. It is pretty crazy to think we are almost at the halfway point of the fantasy season. Team is running out. 

Patriots 35, Giants 14

Fantasy Stud: Golden Tate. Tate was the focal point of the Giants passing game and took advantage with a huge game. He had six receptions for 102 yards with a touchdown. He even did this with the Patriots knowing the Tate was going to get plenty of targets. This bodes well for Tate going forward. He is the first receiver all season to score a touchdown against the Patriots.

Fantasy Dud: Daniel Jones. Jones had his issues for the first time this season, playing a very good Patriots pass defense. Jones was 15-of-31 for 161 yards and a touchdown with three interceptions. This is the first time all year Jones didn’t have double-digit fantasy points. It is his second game with multiple interceptions, though.      

Game Notes: Jon Hilliman led the Giants in rushing, getting the start. He ran 11 times for 38 yards. And for his trouble, the Giants released him the day after the game. The health of Saquon Barkley must be looking pretty good.

Tom Brady was held out of the end zone throwing the ball, but scored two rushing touchdowns. He was 31-of-41 for 334 yards with an interception.

Panthers 37, Bucs 26

Fantasy Stud: Chris Godwin. Godwin didn’t find the end zone but had a huge game because of a reception and yardage totals. He had 10 catches for 151 yards. Godwin’s breakout season continued. Godwin had two double-digit reception games. He also has three straight 100-yard games and four total for the year. He has been a fantasy machine through six games.  

Fantasy Dud: Jameis Winston. Winston threw for 400 yards and a touchdown, so you probably think he didn’t have a bad fantasy day. Think again. Winston was picked off five times and also lost a fumble. His six turnovers were a killer to fantasy teams.  The good news is Winston keeps airing it out in this offense. He has 300-yard games three of four. 

Game Notes: Christian McCaffrey was held in check despite scoring two touchdowns He ran 22 times but had just 31 yards. He also caught four passes for 36 yards, giving him 58 total yards on 26 touches. His two touchdowns saved his fantasy day.

D.J. Moore had another very productive game, catching seven passes for 73 yards on 10 targets. He has at least six receptions four of six games. 

Seahawks 32, Browns 28

Fantasy Stud: Nick Chubb. Chubb had another very productive fantasy performance. He ran 20 times for 122 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught five passes for 17 yards. Chubb has 100-yard games two of three and more than 700 total yards for the season. He is getting it done on a weekly basis, posting very consistent numbers. Chubb is a legit No. 1 back for fantasy teams in this offense.  

Fantasy Dud: Jarvis Landry. Landry had one of his quiet games, seeing teammate Odell Beckham get more looks throughout the game. Landry had three receptions for 36 yards. He had at least 60 yards three straight games before this showing. His five targets were a season low. Landry has been pretty ho hum much of the year for fantasy teams. 

Game Notes: Russell Wilson just keeps getting it done. He was 23-of-33 for 295 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. He also ran in a score, rushing nine times for 31 yards and a  score. Wilson is yet to throw an interception this year and has four three-touchdown games.

Odell Beckham had his second 100-yard game of the season. He caught six passes for 101 yards. He tied a season high in targets with 11.

Texans 31, Chiefs 24

Fantasy Stud: Deshaun Watson. Watson was intercepted twice but scored three total touchdowns. He was 30-of-42 for 280 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions. He also ran 10 times for 42 yards and two scores. This was the fourth time this season Watson had more than 30 fantasy points. He has four three-touchdown games and two games with 300-plus yards. Watson is having another big fantasy season. 

Fantasy Dud: Will Fuller. Fuller did not follow his monster game as most expected he would. He had five receptions for 44 yards and dropped a couple passes, including a would-be touchdown. Fuller has good overall numbers because of his huge Week 5 game but been more bad than good most weeks. He has double-digit fantasy points just two of six games. 

Game Notes: Damien Williams had just two total touches. He ran once for six yards and caught a 14-yard touchdown pass. LeSean McCoy led the team in carries, rushing eight times for 44 yards. 

Tyreek Hill returned from his shoulder injury and looked just fine. He had a big game, catching five passes for 80 yards and a touchdown. He should be just fine going forward.

Redskins 17, Dolphins 16

Fantasy Stud: Terry McLaurin. McLaurin added yet another big game to his rookie season. He had four receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns. McLaurin has touchdowns four of six games. He has 17 or more fantasy points four games and two 100-yard games. He has been as impressive as any rookie receiver in the game, especially if you consider the team around him.

Fantasy Dud: Josh Rosen. Rosen started the game but didn’t finish it, getting benched for Ryan Fitzpatrick. You thought this might be a game you could use Rosen, getting a great matchup. Instead, Rosen went 15-of-25 for 85 yards with two interceptions. Fitzpatrick played well in relief, going 12-of-18 for 132 yards and a touchdown without a turnover. It will be interesting to see what direction the Dolphins go next week.

Game Notes: Adrian Peterson finally had a good showing. He had 23 carries for 118 yards. This was his first game all season with more than 40-rushing yards. 

DeVante Parker scored a touchdown for the second straight game. He had three receptions for 28 yards and a score. 

Vikings 38, Eagles 20

Fantasy Stud: Stefon Diggs. Diggs carried fantasy teams to victory all by himself in Week 6. He had one of the best fantasy games of the season. He finished with seven receptions for 167 yards and three touchdowns. This was a welcome sight for Diggs’ owners after seeing him have just 44 yards the previous week. Diggs has 100-yard games two of three. The Vikings passing game is showing life, which is great news for Diggs. 

Fantasy Dud: Zach Ertz. Ertz had four receptions for 54 yards and lost a fumble. It was another disappointing performance from Ertz. This was his first game with fewer than double-digit fantasy points. His season high in receiving yards is just 72 yard, and he is yet to have double-digit receptions in a game. His start to the season has been a big disappointment to fantasy teams. 

Game Notes: Kirk Cousins was 22-of-29 for 333 yards and four touchdowns with an interception. Cousins has two straight 300-yard games and six touchdowns this last two games. 

Alshon Jeffery got a ton of work in the passing game, catching 10 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown. Jeffery has touchdowns two of three games and 19 catches those three games.

Saints 13, Jaguars 6

Fantasy Stud: Leonard Fournette. Fournette didn’t have a huge game but was good compared to the rest of the offensive players in this one. He ran 20 times for 72 yards and caught six passes for 46 yards. So he finished with 118 total yards and six receptions, making for a pretty good fantasy day. Fournette has three straight games with 100-plus total yards.

Fantasy Dud: Gardner Minshew. Pick a Jaguar for this one. We’ll go with Minshew because many had high hopes for him in what seemed a favorable matchup. He laid an egg for the first time all season, though. He was just 14-of-29 for 163 yards with an interception. This was the first time all season Minshew failed to score a touchdown and broke a streak of three straight games with multiple scores. 

Game Notes: Michael Thomas had eight receptions for 89 yards. Thomas has at least eight receptions five of six games. He has three double-digit reception games this season. 

D.J. Chark had his first down game of the season, catching three passes for 43 yards. This was just the second game all year he didn’t find the end zone. And his yardage total was a season low.

Ravens 23, Bengals 17

Fantasy Stud: Lamar Jackson. Jackson didn't throw a touchdown pass but that matter for his fantasy numbers. He still had a huge game because of a great rushing game. Jackson ran 19 times for 152 yards and a touchdown. He didn’t need to throw a pass and still would have finished with great fantasy numbers. Jackson was 21-of-33 for 236 yards without a touchdown or interception throwing the ball. Jackson has two 100-yard rushing games this season. He has 30-plus fantasy points three of six games.

Fantasy Dud: Tyler Boyd. Boyd had a really down game, especially if you consider his numbers the rest of the year. He caught just three passes for 10 yards. Boyd has fewer than 35 yards two of three games. He has disappointed a little the last few weeks, but remains a solid fantasy play in this offense as the top target right now.

Game Notes: Joe Mixon did next to nothing, rushing eight times for 10 yards. He is finding little room to run behind the Bengals offensive line. Mixon has fewer than 20-rushing yards three times this season.

Mark Andrews led the way in the Ravens passing game, finishing with six receptions for 99 yards. Andrews has 99 or more yards three of six games. 

49ers 20, Rams 7

Fantasy Stud: George Kittle. Kittle finally had a 100-yard game, his first of the season. He had eight receptions for 103 yards. This was the first time all season he had more than 70 yards in a game. Kittle is trending up, though, having six or more receptions three straight games. He is starting to peak at the right time for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Dud: Jared Goff. Goff had a horrible game, going 13-of-24 for only 78 yards. He also failed to score a touchdown and lost a fumble. It was a disaster of a game for Goff. He had just fewer than four fantasy points. You just didn’t see that game coming from Goff, He has two straight 300-yard gams and at least a touchdown every game this season. Goff and the entire Rams offense is trending the wrong way right now.

Game Notes: Malcolm Brown led the Rams in rushing with Todd Gurley out, rushing 11 times for 40 yards. Rookie Darrell Henderson looked pretty good, though, rushing six times for 39 yards. He averaged an impressive 6.5 yards per carry, which could earn him more work going forward. 

Tevin Coleman found the end zone for the second straight game. He ran 18 times for 45 yards and a score. He led the 49ers in rushing attempts once again and has 34 attempts his last two games.

Cardinals 34, Falcons 33

Fantasy Stud: Matt Ryan. His team lost once again, but Ryan continues to post big fantasy numbers. He was 30-of-36 for 356 yards and four touchdowns without a turnover. Ryan has four three-touchdown games and at least 300-passing yards every game. His fantasy numbers have been off the charts and consistent all year. 

Fantasy Dud: Mohamed Sanu. Sanu had been trending the right way in recent weeks but disappointed in this high-scoring affair. He had just three receptions for 29 yards. Sanu had at least 13 fantasy points three straight games before this one. He also had at least four receptions every game this season before this game. It was an unexpected showing in a great matchup. 

Game Notes: Kyler Murray had maybe his best game as a pro, going 27-of-37 for 340 yards and three touchdowns without a turnover. He also ran 11 times for 32 yards. This was the first time in his career Murray had more than 30 fantasy points. 

David Johnson was able to play with his back injury and produced well in the game. He ran 12 times for 34 yards and a touchdown. He did most of damage in the passing game, catching six passes for 68 yards and a touchdowns. Johnson topped 100 total yards for the third straight game.

Broncos 16, Titans 0

Fantasy Stud: Phillip Lindsay. Lindsay was one of the few offensive players in this game that produced well. He ran 15 times for 70 yards and a touchdown. He also caught two passes for five yards. Lindsay has scores two straight and three of four games. He has double-digit fantasy points all but a game this year. 

Fantasy Dud: Derrick Henry. Henry had a really disappointing game despite a big workload. He ran 15 times for 28 yards and caught just a pass for five yards. This was the first game all year Henry didn't have double-digit fantasy points. His 4.3 fantasy points were a season low. Henry has been shutout of the end zone two of the past three games after scoring three straight to the start the season. 

Game Notes: Courtland Sutton led the Broncos in receiving once again, catching four passes for 76 yards. He has at least 75 yards three of four games. He is having a breakout year as the top receiver in this offense. 

Marcus Mariota found his way to the bench in this one, getting benched for Ryan Tannehill. Mariota was 7-of-18 for 63 yards with two interceptions. Tannehill played well in relief, going 13-of-16 for 144 yards with an interception. It will be interesting to see what direction the Titans go in Week 7. 

Jets 24, Cowboys 22

Fantasy Stud: Robby Anderson. The return of Sam Darnold was a huge plus for Anderson. He had his best game of the year, catching five passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. Anderson has 80-plus yard two of five games. He has big-time potential if getting the chances in this offense. He is a big-play threat every time he has the ball in his hands. 

Fantasy Dud: Dak Prescott. Prescott was surprisingly quiet in a great matchup. He was 28-of-40 for 277 yards without a touchdown or an interception. The only time Prescott found the end zone was running the ball, having three carries for 11 yards and a touchdown.  Prescott has failed to throw a touchdown pass two of his past three games. He has really gone downhill since having multiple scores three straight to start his season. 

Game Notes: Ezekiel Elliott had a 100-yard rushing performance. He ran 28 times for 105 yards and a touchdown. He also had five receptions for 47 yards, giving him 152 total yards and a score. Elliott has three 100-yard games this season.

Amari Cooper injured his quad very early in the game and could not return. He had a catch for three yards before leaving. This is an injury to monitor, so keep an eye on the player notes for the latest. 

Steelers 24, Chargers 17

Fantasy Stud: Hunter Henry. Henry returned from his knee injury and looked great, leading the Chargers in receiving. He showed his huge ceiling in the game, catching eight passes for 99 yards and two touchdowns. This was just his second game of the season but Henry has 60 or more yards in each game. He can be an elite fantasy tight end in this offense. 

Fantasy Dud: Austin Ekeler. Ekeler finally had a dud of a game, splitting work with Melvin Gordon. He didn’t catch many passes, leading to his poor fantasy numbers. Ekeler ran five times for just 14 yards and caught three passes for 14 yards. His reception total was his lowest of the season. This game was a bit of a concern for Ekeler owners. He didn’t have double-digit touches for the first time all year with Melvin Gordon drawing the start for San Diego.

Game Notes: Devlin Hodges led his team to victory in his first NFL start but did most of his work on dump offs to his running back, James Conner. Hodges was 15-of-20 for 132 yards and a  touchdown with an interception. Conner had seven receptions for 78 yards. Hodges took few chances down the field.

Philip Rivers did most of his damage late in the game with his team trailing but finished with good fantasy numbers because of this. He was 26-of-44 for 320 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. Rivers has 300-yards games four of six. He also has multiple scores three of four games.

Player Notes
Vance McDonald Nov 15 3:30am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught three passes for 33 yards on Thursday during the loss to the Cleveland Browns. McDonald led the team with seven targets on the night after James Conner (shoulder), Diontae Johnson (concussion), and JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) all suffered injuries. McDonald, who has been targeted 21 times over the last three games, could be more involved against the Bengals in Week 12 if any one of those three mentioned aren't able to go. Keep on an eye on things heading into next Sunday's matchup with Cincy.

From RotoBaller

James Washington Nov 15 3:20am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver James Washington finished with a team-high 49 yards during the loss to the Browns on Thursday. With JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion), James Conner (shoulder), and Diontae Johnson (concussion) all getting banged up in this one, Washington received five targets while managing to catch just three of them. The 23-year-old could see his fantasy stock rise before the Week 12 showdown with the Bengals if any of those guys aren't able to suit up, especially for those playing in deeper formats.

From RotoBaller

Trey Edmunds Nov 15 3:10am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Trey Edmunds finished with just three carries for 11 yards during the loss to the Browns. Edmunds yielded carries to Jaylen Samuels, who finished with five attempts for 26 yards, and while both men didn't fully capitalize on the ground after the premature departure of James Conner (shoulder), they were involved on the receiving end to some degree. If Conner is unable to suit up against the Bengals in Week 12, Edmunds has some value, but only as a desperation play in deeper leagues as Samuels will likely be more involved against Cincinnati.

From RotoBaller

Jaylen Samuels Nov 15 2:40am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels finished with five attempts for 26 yards in addition to five receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown against the Browns in Week 11. Samuels stepped up after James Conner was ruled out on Thursday night after re-injuring the same shoulder that kept him out over the last few weeks. Look for 23-year-old to once again be a popular waiver wire target, especially in PPR formats, heading into Week 12 against the Bengals if Conner is forced to miss another one.

From RotoBaller

Mason Rudolph Nov 15 2:30am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph struggled in Week 11 in the loss to the Browns, finishing with 221 yards on 23-for-44 passing to go along with four interceptions. While the 24-year-old did throw a touchdown, the four picks he threw offset any chance for an adequate fantasy performance. He hasn't played well over the last three weeks, however, compiling only 654 yards and three scores, while throwing five interceptions. There is light at the end of the tunnel for Rudolph, nonetheless, as the Steelers will look to get back on track against the Bengals in Week 12, with his stock increasing if either JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) or James Conner (shoulder) are able to play after suffering in-game injuries on Thursday night.

From RotoBaller

Adam Vinatieri Nov 15 12:20am ET

Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri has been one of the NFL's worst kickers this year, but head coach Frank Reich remains confident in him. However, in Week 11 with the fantasy playoffs looming, you can't trust him in your lineups. He's missed five field goals and six extra points this season. He's below 80 percent accuracy in both categories, and this figures to be a low-scoring game. You just can't trot him out this week, as there are likely several options available that are better than him.

From RotoBaller

Marlon Mack Nov 15 12:10am ET

Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack has only cleared 100 scrimmage yards in a game twice this season. One of those was all the way back in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers. In Week 11, he has a good matchup that could see that number grow to three. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Indy's Week 11 opponent, have been decent against the pass, but they're allowing over 120 yards per game on the ground. Mack is still in the RB2 conversation every week because he gets good volume, and this week he has a fair bit of upside.

From RotoBaller

Jacoby Brissett Nov 15 12:10am ET

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett (knee) is expected to start after missing last week's loss to the Miami Dolphins. After being a consistent QB2 for much of the season, he can't be trusted this week. He'll be without three of his top four wide receivers due to injuries, and he's playing against a defense that still has a fair bit of talent to make life difficult for him. With only four teams on a bye, there should be better streaming options available for this week than Brissett. Expect the Colts to lean heavily on the running game even with Brissett back in the fold.

From RotoBaller

Zach Pascal Nov 15 12:10am ET

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Zach Pascal was quiet last week, and he'll see an uptick in his stock this week with quarterback Jacoby Brissett (knee) expected to start. However, he still can't be relied on for anything consistent. He's been boom-or-bust wideout nearly every week since he showed up on the scene in Week 3. He'll also have to deal with cornerback A.J. Bouye a fair bit in this game, which further downgrades him. Unless you have no other options, look elsewhere at wide receiver in shallow leagues. The Colts should lean more on the run this week once again.

From RotoBaller

Eric Ebron Nov 15 12:10am ET

Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron wanted more opportunities, and he got them last week. He saw 12 targets, but he only came down with five of them. Regardless, he remains a TE2 in Week 11. The Colts are without three of their top four wide receivers due to injury, which puts Ebron in a position to make plays every week. He has three touchdowns on the year, and with three good tight ends on byes this week, there's a short list of players that can be in front of him. If you have a better option, you can start him, but the Jacksonville Jaguars have been average against tight ends this year. Especially if T.Y. Hilton (calf) misses another game, you could do much worse than Ebron.

From RotoBaller

Jarvis Landry Nov 15 12:10am ET

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry caught 4-of-7 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in a 21-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11. Landry got wide open on the left side of the end zone for a one-yard score in the second quarter, giving him a touchdown in three straight games. The veteran wide receiver has been trending up in recent weeks and draws a cake matchup against the Miami Dolphins in Week 12. He will be a no-brainer fantasy option for that contest.

From RotoBaller

Cleveland Browns Nov 15 12:10am ET

The Cleveland Browns Defense put on a dominant showing in a 21-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11. Cleveland intercepted Mason Rudolph four times and sacked him another four times in the win. It isn't all good news, however, as star pass rusher Myles Garrett is probably looking at a lengthy suspension for his role in a brawl at the end of the game. Garrett ripped off Rudolph's helmet and hit him with it after a sack late in the contest. Cleveland's defense will be a top option in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins regardless of whether Garrett is available or not.

From RotoBaller

Baker Mayfield Nov 15 12:00am ET

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield got the job done in a 21-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11. Mayfield completed 17-of-32 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns. He also added a one-yard rushing touchdown on the evening. The rushing score was a gift as Odell Beckham Jr. appeared to have a touchdown reception which was overturned after the scoring play was reviewed, putting the ball at the Pittsburgh one-yard line. After a rough start to the season, Mayfield is starting to trend upwards. He draws a beautiful Week 12 matchup against the tanking Miami Dolphins.

From RotoBaller

Nick Chubb Nov 15 12:00am ET

Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb carried the ball 27 times for 92 yards in a 21-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11. Chubb was mostly bottled up by a tough Pittsburgh run defense but the 27 carries go down as a season-high as he became the first NFL player to rush for 1,000 yards in the 2019 season. He did check out near the end of the game with what appeared to be a groin issue. On the negative side, Chubb only drew one target as newly reinstated Kareem Hunt continues to cut into his passing game work. Either way, Chubb will be a lock-button play in Week 12 against a weak Miami Dolphins Defense.

From RotoBaller

Kareem Hunt Nov 15 12:00am ET

Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt carried the ball six times for 12 yards and added six receptions for 46 yards in a 21-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11. Hunt continues to be deployed as Cleveland's passing-down back, out-targeting Nick Chubb eight to one in the contest. Chubb also appeared to tweak his groin toward the end of the game, which could lead to more work for Hunt against the Miami Dolphins in Week 12 if Chubb is unable to play or is limited. Hunt's work in the passing game has him on the radar as a flex option in PPR leagues going forward.

From RotoBaller

Odell Beckham Jr. Nov 15 12:00am ET

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught 4-of-10 targets for 60 yards in a 21-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Beckham had a touchdown wiped off the board at the end of the first drive when official review revealed that his knee was down inside the one-yard line, right before the ball crossed the goal line. Beckham wound up settling for a 42-yard reception. He was mostly quiet for the rest of the game as he and Baker Mayfield continue to struggle to get on the same page. Despite the slow season, Beckham could very well erupt in Week 12 as the Browns take on the tanking Miami Dolphins.

From RotoBaller

Jay Ajayi Nov 14 11:03pm ET

Free-agent RB Jay Ajayi (Eagles) will visit the Philadelphia Eagles Friday, Nov. 15, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Ajayi played well for the Eagles in 2017, but knee injuries took a toll on his production. If he does return to the Eagles, he won't have any fantasy appeal in a crowded backfield.

From TheHuddle

Morgan Burnett Nov 14 10:33pm ET

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns FS Morgan Burnett (Achilles) has been ruled out for the remainder of the Week 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with an Achilles injury.

From TheHuddle

James Conner Nov 14 10:03pm ET

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) has been ruled out for the remainder of the Week 11 game against the Cleveland Browns after suffering a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Spin: After his shoulder injury flared up, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Conner miss additional time going forward. Jaylen Samuels would be the back to own in Conner's absence.

From TheHuddle

JuJu Smith-Schuster Nov 14 10:03pm ET

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) won't return to the Week 11 game against the Cleveland Browns after being diagnosed with a concussion.

Fantasy Spin: Diontae Johnson is currently second on the team in receptions and could be worth a flier as a desperation flex play if Smith-Schuster misses additional games.

From TheHuddle
