Well, another week of football is in the books and most of you are probably out of your fantasy leagues. For those of you that are still in it, many of these studs helped you survive another week. For those of you who were knocked out, chances are you can lay at least some blame on one of the players below.


Tom Brady: 296 pass yds, 4 pass TDs, 6 rush yds

Cam Newton: 287 pass yds, 2 pass TDs, 116 rush yds, rush TD

Nick Foles: 381 pass yds, 2 pass TDs, 27 rush yds, rush TD

Kudos to all of you who started Nick Foles in the fantasy playoffs. Oh wait, no one did that. Kudos to no one.

Eli Manning: 259 pass yds, 4 pass TDs, 2 INTs, -3 rush yds

Ben Roethlisberger: 285 pass yds, 3 pass TDs, INT, 31 rush yds, fumble lost


Andrew Luck: 196 pass yds, pass TD, 2 INTs, 7 rush yds

Aaron Rodgers: 173 pass yds, 32 rush yds, rush TD, fumble lost

Fantasy first round pick who didn’t come through for fantasy owners.



David Wilson: 100 rush yds, 2 rush TDs, 227 return yds, return TD

Talk about a nice start in the flex if you played him this past week.

Marshawn Lynch: 128 rush yds, 3 rush TDs

Adrian Peterson: 154 rush yds, 2 rush TDs, 16 rec yds


CJ Spiller: 37 rush yds, 15 rec yds

Chris Johnson: 44 rush yds, 15 rec yds

Ahmad Bradshaw: 33 rush yds

Nice stats against the league’s worst run defense.



Mike Wallace: 112 rec yds, 2 rec TDs

Brandon Marshall: 160 rec yds, rec TD


Larry Fitzgerald: 2 rec yds

The Arizona Cardinals are the real chumps. Unfortunately for Fitzy, he is, in fact, a member of the Arizona Cardinals.



Aaron Hernandez: 58 rec yds, 2 rec TDs

There was likely a Monday night miracle for many Hernandez fantasy owners.


Vernon Davis: 4 rec yds

Is the biggest tight end disappointment this year…

Jermichael Finley: 16 rec yds

Or is he?
