QUARTERBACKS

QB CHAMPS

Russell Wilson (CHAMP OF THE WEEK): 205 pass yds, pass TD, 92 rush yds, 3 rush TDs

Imagine this scenario: You won this week with Wilson and made the championship. With it all on the line, do you start him against the 49ers’ defense next weekend?

Drew Brees: 307 pass yds, 4 pass TDs, 11 rush yds

Sam Bradford: 377 pass yds, 3 pass TDs, INT, 9 rush yds, 2 pt conversion

Colin Kaepernick: 216 pass yds, 4 pass TDs, INT, 28 rush yds

 

QB CHUMPS

Josh Freeman (CHUMP OF THE WEEK): 279 pass yds, 4 INTS, 8 rush yds, fumble lost

He seemed like a great start against the worst pass defense in the league. What a goat.

Eli Manning: 161 pass yds, 2 INTs

Two weeks ago against the Packers he had 3 TDs and no picks. He’s only elite once in a while.

Matthew Stafford: 246 pass yds, 3 INTs

 

RUNNING BACKS

RB CHAMPS

Adrian Peterson: 212 rush yds, rush TD

If AP is on your team there’s a very good chance you’ve advanced to your Fantasy Football Championship almost automatically.

Beanie Wells: 67 rush yds, 3 rush TDs

 

RB CHUMPS

Any of these three top RBs could’ve doomed your team this week. It’s tough to win when one of your star players stinks

Jamaal Charles: 10 rush yds, 18 rec yds

Doug Martin: 16 rush yds, 19 rec yds

Ray Rice: 38 rush yds, 3 rec yds

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

WR CHAMPS

James Jones: 60 rec yds, 3 rec TDs

Quiz time: Who leads the league in receiving touchdowns?

That’s right.

Michael Crabtree: 107 rec yds, 2 rec TDs

 


WR CHUMPS

Any of these three top WRs could’ve doomed your team this week. It’s tough to win when one of your star players stinks. (Copy and paste rules!)

Demaryius Thomas: 13 rec yds

Reggie Wayne: 14 rec yds

Roddy White: 16 rec yds

 

TIGHT ENDS

Wacky year for tight ends.

TE CHAMP

Dennis Pitta: 125 rec yds, 2 rec TDs

 

TE CHUMPS

Vernon Davis: 10 rec yds

Martellus Bennett: 15 rec yds

Brandon Myers: 15 rec yds

 

KICKERS

Typically I don’t include kickers in Champs and Chumps, but a kicker could’ve really made the difference for you this week. Three kickers had monster games while three others put up goose eggs.
