Donte Stallworth scores long TD in return to fantasy relevance

Jim Rogash

Donte Stallworth had just one reception on Monday night, but took it 63 yards to the house to help the Patriots rout the Texans. We break down the fantasy implications.

Donte Stallworth caught just one pass, but took it 63 yards for a touchdown to help the New England Patriots dismantle the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football. Stallworth was targeted just twice on the night by quarterback Tom Brady.

Stallworth signed with the Pats a week ago after Julian Edelman was placed on injured reserve. Monday was his first game appearance of the season, but he did not appear rusty as he made a nice catch over his shoulder and strode into the end zone.

Fantasy Impact: Stallworth probably shouldn't be on your fantasy radar, despite his big play. There is a reason he was so readily available for the Pats. Don't expect the Pats' opponents to roll over going forward like the Texans did Monday, either. Still, kudos to the wideout for making a big impact in an important win for New England.
