Tony Romo - I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving this past Thursday.  Everyone in the Stars section this week did, as each one of them played that day.  Sure, the Cowboys lost, but falling behind early just meant Romo went to the air 62 times and accumulated 441 yards passing and 3 TDs.

Tom Brady - The late night game, which apparently a lot of people forgot was on, featured another Patriots annihilation of the Jets.  Brady passed for 323 yards and 3 TDs and also scored a rushing TD as well.  Brady and the Pats will be tested in a big way these next couple weeks as they play against the Texans and 49ers.

Matthew Stafford - Remember back when people used to say "Don't bet against the Lions on Thanksgiving."?  Yeah, me either.  10 years and counting, the Lions have lost on turkey day.  Stafford though put up a great day with 441 yards and 2 TDs.

Robert Griffin III - RGIII continues to solidify himself as the league's rookie of the year with a 311 yard, 4 TD performance in Dallas.

Dez Bryant - For the second consecutive week, Bryant posts 145 yards receiving and scored a couple of TDs in the process.  Philly, Cincy, New Orleans and Washington are 4 of his last 5 opponents.  The Cowboys passing attack could make all the difference in the final weeks of the fantasy season.

Black Holes

Aaron Rodgers - Now here's something you don't see very often.  Rodgers struggled mightily against the Giants passing for just 219 with 1 TD, 1 INT and 1 lost fumble.  He was bottled up last year in the playoffs by the Giants too, so maybe they just have his number.

Andrew Luck - After a rough outing in New England, I was expecting more from Luck against Buffalo at home.  However, Luck just produced 1 TD and 240 passing yards.  Not bad, but not starter worthy.

Josh Freeman - After a few weeks of being a red hot fantasy QB, he's slowed down considerably.  Against the Falcons, Freeman just passed for 256 yards.  No TDs, no rushing yards, nothing.

Roddy White - Coming off 3 straight 100+ yard performance, you had to believe that TB would make it an easy 4 in a row.  Not so much.  White finished with just 5 catches for 57 yards and no redeeming TD to save his fantasy stats.

Carson Palmer - I know, he's Captain Overrated and I shouldn't expect much out of him.  However, he was on a streak of 3 300+ yards passing games and would be coming back to Cincy with his new teammates to show them what they're missing out on.  Well, unfortunately, for the Raiders, he showed them what they're missing out on.  An average (at best) QB, that passed for 146 yards and turned it over twice.

No love for Cam, Nick? I figured he did enough to finally get a spot here...

Yeah, typically I write this before the Monday Night game is played. I had written most of this before that game and didn't publish till yesterday. Otherwise, Cam and Bryce Brown would have both been on there.
