adrianpeterson_12032012Adrian Peterson - As we start the Advent season and the priests wear purple during mass, its only fitting that the RB nicknamed Purple Jesus turned in another strong performance in Green Bay rushing for 210 yards and a TD.  He'll get GB again in Week 17.

Andrew Luck - After stumbling the past couple weeks, Luck got back in his fantasy owners good graces with a big day in Detroit.  Even though he was picked off 3 times, he passed for 391 yards and 4 TDs.  I guess the turnovers can be overlooked.

Bryce Brown - One week ago today, nobody knew who Bryce Brown was.  Two games later, he's the hottest player off the waiver wire in fantasy football.  After a 178 and 2 TD performance on Monday Night, Brown followed it up with a 169 yard, 2 TD performance against Dallas.  While he does have a fumbling problem, when you score multiple TDs and rush for over 7 yards per carry, I don't think anyone will care.

Tony Romo - Continuing his hot streak, Romo lit up the Eagles for 303 yards and 3 TDs.  As I mentioned last week, Romo and the Cowboys offense look to finish strong this year with a favorable schedule (besides the Steelers, of course).

Calvin Johnson - Megatron's stats look like they're right out of Madden.  13 catches, 20 targets, 171 yards and a TD.  Its like that kid that only knows how to press one button and keeps throwing to the same player every time.


Black Holes

Drew Brees - I don't know what happened this Thursday.  Last Thursday was such a huge day for NFL players.  This Thursday, Brees threw 5 INT and lost to the Falcons.

Matt Ryan - Meanwhile, Matt Ryan who had a monster game in Tampa last week, figured to have another huge game at home against a really soft Saints defense.  Unfortunately for his owners, Ryan only passed for 165 yards and just 1 TD.

Roddy White - The WR suffering the most in this game was White with just 1 catch for 20 yards.  Wow!

Philip Rivers - Suffice to say, Rivers hasn't exactly been the best QB in the NFL this year.  He only went over 300 yards twice and this week wasn't one of them.  Just 280 yards, 1 INT, 1 lost fumble.  Not exactly great stats especially when you play the Bengals.

Jordy Nelson - Nelson caught 1 pass for 10 yards before leaving hamstring injury.  Will Green Bay's WR corps ever get healthy?
