Ballers of the Week
DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart had huge days against the 0-10 Detroit Lions. Williams had 14 carries for 120 yards and two TD’s, while the rookie Stewart piled up 130 yards on 15 carries with one touchdown. That many yards (250) on the ground from two guys is very impressive and that kind of production should be similar next week against
Addai had by far his best game of 2008 with 22 carries for 105 yards and a score. He also chipped in with four catches for 48 yards and another TD. This was the first time all season that Addai has ran for more than 100 yards so maybe he is finally healthy. Look for him to get stronger and more comfortable and finish the season out strong.
The best receiver tandem in the NFL went off yet again, as Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin combined for 23 receptions and 337 yards Sunday against the Seahawks. Although neither found pay dirt, both provided very serviceable days for fantasy owners. Boldin had 13 catches for 186 yards, while Fitzgerald hauled in 10 passes for 151 yards. You don’t need me to tell you that these two WRs are must starts every week!
Busts of the Week
Hightower did not do much on Sunday to help keep his newly acquired starting job. He ran the ball 11 times for just 35 yards and failed to make any receptions or score a TD. Meanwhile, reserve J.J. Arrington found the end zone twice and was much more productive when he ran the ball. Hightower owners should grab Arrington immediately.
The once unstoppable Bears defense got embarrassed on Sunday, allowing 37 points to
Gates had scored in each of his past two games, but Week 11 was one that owners will want to forget about. Gates had just two catches for 10 yards in a miserable day for all Chargers.
, QB Tennessee Titans
How this guy is still only owned in 22% of ESPN leagues is beyond me. Go pick Collins up right now if you are in need of a QB because he has been awesome over the last two weeks, averaging over 20 points a game. I think more than 500 passing yards, five TDs and just one INT over the last two games is good enough reason to warrant a pick up.
had a monster day last Thursday in a 34-31 loss to the Jets. He was 30-51 for 400 yards and three touchdown passes. He also ran for 62 yards and almost single-handedly led his team to a come-from-behind victory.

The No. 3 RB on the
Must Start of Week 12
I am saying it right now, start Reggie next week against the Packers! I know owners will be unsure whether to start him or not after his knee injury, but I am telling you right now to do it. He sat out an extra week to get healthy and is going up against a pitiful
Please Bench of Week 12
, QB Kansas City Chiefs
Thigpen has been on fire over the last month, averaging close to 25 fantasy points a game! Week 12 will be a different story though as he matches up against a solid
