It’s a good thing most fantasy football leagues concluded in Week 16, because several non-traditional positions are hawking touchdown receptions on the last Sunday of the regular season.

The New England Patriots broke out a play designed for linebacker-turned-fullback Elandon Roberts, which turned into an impressive 38-yard touchdown.

The Dolphins left Roberts wide open for a catch, but then he stiff-armed a would-be tackler and gained 30 yards after the catch for his first NFL touchdown. Roberts switched to fullback midseason after injuries hurt New England at the position.

But there was an even bigger “big man touchdown” on Sunday, courtesy of Atlanta Falcons tackle Ty Sambrailo.

Listed at 315 pounds on the team’s website, Sambrailo’s 35-yard touchdown Sunday was the longest by an NFL offensive lineman since 1950, according to the Falcons.

Like Roberts, Sambrailo was left uncovered and he made the Buccaneers pay.
