Ballers of the Week
Well this is the second week in a row that Westbrook has cracked the ballers list and for good reason. B-West was the workhouse of old against the division rival Giants in Week 14 as he carried the ball 33 times for 131 yards and a touchdown. He also snagged six receptions for 72 yards and another score. This was a vintage performance out of Westbrook and couldn’t have come at a better time for fantasy owners as the playoffs have started in many leagues. He now has over 60 points combined in the last two weeks and should be solid down the stretch.

hadn’t scored a TD in three straight weeks. Well that trend changed in Week 14 as he scored twice.
Busts of the Week
, QB Dallas Cowboys
Romo played so well on Thanksgiving Day, and I’m sure that everyone thought he would only get better as the season went on, but that wasn’t the case Sunday against the Steelers. Romo played a horrendous game, throwing for just 210 yards with one TD, three interceptions and a lost fumble. He was frustrated all game with constant pressure and was overthrowing his receivers frequently. He’s still getting used to that injured finger, but he should still be a no-brainer to start the rest of the season.
After getting upset at home against an inconsistent
Marshawn didn’t bring his “beast mode” game Sunday against the surging Dolphins as he was held to just three fantasy points. He had 13 carries for only 31 yards and could never really get it going. Lynch was on fire prior to the Week 14 disappointment so look for him to get back on track against a Jet team that is in a big slump right now.
Choice got his first career start on Sunday due to the foot injury of Marion Barber. He did have to go up against the best defense in the NFL in the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Choice held his own. He put up 166 total yards (88 rushing, 78 receiving), which led the Cowboys in each category. Go grab this guy because he earned some carries the rest of the season even if Barber comes back next week.
, WR Houston Texans
Walter came up huge for the Texans in Week 14 with 146 yards and a touchdown. He had just six receptions, but made them all count. These numbers are a little deceiving for Walter owners because his first two catches went for 58 and 44 respectively, nonetheless he still provided an substantial boost to fantasy teams in the playoffs this week.
Keep on your Fantasy Radar
Giants Backup RBs
Brandon Jacobs’ knee injury looks a little more serious than it was first thought to be so go grab Ahmad Bradshaw and Derrick Ward if they are available in your leagues. Ward is probably the better pick of the two, but both could help you down the stretch if Jacobs misses time.
Must Start of Week 15
