Each week, I’m bringing you the prior week’s one-week wonders and we are going to track this all year! Why? We want to see how many of these one-week wonders continue their consistency or not.


Here is the updated chart through Week 3.

Trend from Week 1 to Week 3:

Kyren Williams, Brandon Johnson, and Kylen Granson crashed down to Earth in week 3, going from double-digit outings to single digits.

Williams should remain on rosters, while the other 2 are waiver wire fodder.

Meanwhile, CJ Stroud and Zach Moss continued their great play, both turning in 20+ point weeks. If they are available or riding the bench somewhere, see if you can acquire them.



Andy Dalton – #6 overall – 23.50 pts

It was an impressive performance for the 35-year-old, who started in the absence of Bryce Young. Wide receivers Adam Thielen and DJ Chark both racked up at least 86 yards and a touchdown. Dalton is an old pro who can get the ball out accurately, but he will only be viable until Young returns from injury. That gives him one more week tops against a bad Minnesota defense. He is worth an add if you are a Derek Carr owner.


De’Von Achane – #1 overall – 51.30 pts

In just his second career game, Achane had one of the most impressive performances in recent memory, scoring 4 total touchdowns. While technically behind Raheem Mostert in the depth chart, it’s clear that Achane is a weapon that will be deployed in games, as Miami has assembled an Olympic track team of skill position players. Achane should be added immediately because while he probably won’t reach these heights again, the upside is tantalizing.


Calvin Austin – #23 overall – 15.20 pts

The Steelers’ offense has struggled to put together big plays early in the 2023 season, but Austin had the longest play of Sunday’s matchup with his 72-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. He did have 6 targets but only caught two, so his efficiency could be better. Diontae Johnson will be on injured reserve for two more weeks, so Austin should see increased playing time for at least that long. He is more suited to best ball lineups but is worth a speculative add if you have other disappointing bench players.


Pharoah Brown – #5 overall – 15.10 pts

Brown caught both of his targets for 71 yards and a TD in Sunday’s 15-10 win, despite playing for only 25 snaps. He was the beneficiary of a 58-yard touchdown, which helped pump up his numbers. Having not played at all in weeks 1 and 2, Brown is better left on the waiver wire at this point in time, as his game really is an outlier.
