Peyton Manning completed 22-of-30 passes for 305 yards and three touchdowns in Denver's 34-14 Week 8 win over the Saints.

Buoyed by a robust rushing attack, Manning was surgical as the Broncos absolutely wiped out the Saints, rolling up 530 yards of offense to New Orleans' 252. In what's become a common theme, Manning looked every bit his vintage self, and has now thrown for at least 300 yards in five consecutive games. He's posted an eye-popping 14:1 TD:INT ratio over that time period. Tonight's dominant effort came despite a split fingernail on his throwing thumb. Even if Manning's lost a little bit of his zip, he's playing as well as he ever did in Indy. The Broncos are going to waltz to the AFC West title. The Bengals are on tap for Week 9.

Shaun Hill completed just 18-of-35 passes for 198 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Rams' 27-24, Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

Hill was picked off on his first and last throws of the game, with a fumble-six sandwiched in between, channeling his inner Austin Davis. The final interception was an absolute back-breaker, as the Rams were set up inside the Chargers' five-yard line with a chance to win the game and at least kick a field goal to head to overtime. OC Brian Schottenheimer mind-numbingly dialed up a pass, and Hill threw it right to Marcus Gilchrist to seal the loss. Hill was bad for most of the day, though. He'll be bottom-barrel QB2 against the Raiders in Week 13.

Russell Wilson completed 17-of-22 passes for 211 yards with one touchdown and rushed 10 times for 73 yards in Sunday's 19-3 Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

With Marshawn Lynch bottled up by a balky back and a swarming Cardinals run defense, Wilson took it upon himself to knock off the division leaders. He did it with error-free football, never coming near a turnover and executing read-option plays beautifully. Wilson remains matchup-proof because of his legs -- he's now gone over 70 rushing yards in five of the last eight games. He'll be a QB1 against even in a difficult matchup at San Francisco on Thanksgiving night.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 15 times for 39 yards and caught three passes for 43 yards in Sunday's 19-3 win over the Cardinals.

Lynch missed two series in the first quarter after his troublesome back tightened up on him. He returned to a featured role, but didn't quite look like himself and was facing a strong-tackling Cardinals defense that was swarming. So Lynch owners should consider themselves lucky to come away with 82 total yards given the situation. We fully expect Beast Mode to play on Thanksgiving night, but it can't hurt to roster Robert Turbin right now.

Doug Martin rushed 11 times for 27 yards Week 12 against the Bears.

Martin started the game but rotated evenly with Charles Sims through the first three quarters. Martin had a nice 10-yard run where he showed the vision and burst that made him a hot property follwing his rookie season, but struggled to find room in the Bucs' horrible run scheme the rest of the day. Martin will likely be the better side of Tampa's new RBBC, but he will not be worth a start against a suddenly resurgent Bengals' defense Week 13.

Isaiah Crowell rushed 12 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns in Cleveland's Week 12 win over the Falcons.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. As expected, Crowell started over Terrance West, but was actually out-touched by West 15-12. Crowell out-gained him 88-71, however, and looked like a man deserving of his No. 1 status. Crowell was electrifying on both his TDs, planting his foot for a one-cut, 11-yard run on his first score. For the second, he completely reversed fields two separate times, eluding tackles and displaying a low-center of gravity en route to a 26-yard TD. His raw talent was plain as day. Crowell and West will continue to split the rock for a run-heavy team, but Crowell is the clear No. 1 option, and a weekly upside RB2 for fantasy players.
Nov 23 - 4:46 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 21 times for 130 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's 43-24 Week 12 win over the Titans.

McCoy wasn't quite back to 2013 form, but this was his best performance in a disappointing 2014 season. He broke off a season-long run of 53 yards in a first half that saw him record a 14-100-1 line despite getting another touchdown vultured (again) by Darren Sproles. In the second half, the Eagles used the lopsided score to back off McCoy with a Thursday Thanksgiving game against the Cowboys on deck. Expect another 20-plus touches in that one for Shady, who now has at least 20 carries in six of the last seven games.
Nov 23 - 4:38 PM

Boom Herron rushed 12 times for 65 yards in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Jaguars, adding five catches for 31 yards.

Herron surprisingly drew the start over Trent Richardson in the Colts' first game without Ahmad Bradshaw (leg, I.R.), and ended up out-touching his backfield mate 17-13 and out-gaining him 96-42. Herron was clearly, and unsurprisingly, the far better player, showing considerable more burst and bounce to his step. The two backs alternated series evenly throughout the first half before Herron saw more action in the second half. Even after Herron lost a fumble in the red zone, the Colts didn't shy away from him. We'd prefer Herron to T-Rich at this point. He'll be on the RB2 map next week at home against the Redskins.
Nov 23 - 4:33 PM

Mark Sanchez completed 30-of-43 passes for 307 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Titans.

Sanchez was not particularly sharp, making a fistful of ill-advised throws -- two of which were picked off. But in this Chip Kelly (god of offense) scheme, it doesn't matter much. Just like Nick Foles, the sheer number of plays combined with a unique ability to get receivers open leads to big-time box scores. Sanchez has now started three games as an Eagle and produced three 300-yard days to go with five touchdowns and four interceptions during those starts. He'll be a reasonable QB1 start at Dallas on Thanksgiving.
Nov 23 - 4:27 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 12 times for 78 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Lions.

The Pats primarily attacked Detroit's defense in spread looks, but did mix in some power-running plays. Blount -- not "tardy" Jonas Gray -- got the first opportunities to establish a hot hand, and he ran with them. Blount capitalized on an early second-quarter 81-yard kickoff return by Danny Amendola by powering in for a three-yard touchdown to give New England a 14-6 lead. He later scored from one yard out in what amounted to garbage time in the 34-9 romp. Blount wound up playing 17 snaps to Gray's zero. Blount is suddenly on the RB2 map entering a Week 13 date with the Packers.

Making his 2014 debut, Josh Gordon caught 8-of-16 targets for 120 yards in Cleveland's Week 12 win over the Falcons.

Despite much pre-game speculation to the contrary, Gordon wasn't on any sort of a pitch count, playing essentially every down. He was targeted on a whopping 40 percent of the Browns' pass plays. His 16 looks were twice as many as No. 2 Miles Austin's eight. It was music to fantasy owners' ears, but Brian Hoyer often appeared to be forcing the ball to his returning No. 1 weapon, making a number of disastrous decisions on plays where they perhaps weren't on the same page. Hoyer also flat missed Gordon on at least 3-4 occasions. Gordon could have had a much-bigger game. Either way, he's established without a doubt that he'll be an elite WR1 down the stretch as the Browns try to clinch their first playoff berth since 2002.
Nov 23 - 4:21 PM

A.J. Green caught 12 balls for 121 yards in the Bengals' Week 12 win over the Texans.

The Texans did Green a favor by keeping top CB Johnathan Joseph away from his side, and letting Green go to work on second-year UDFA A.J. Bouye. Bouye got such a good whipping that DC Romeo Crennel benched him for Darryl Morris early in the second half. AJG went on to whip Morris repeatedly for first-down catches. Green now has four career games of double-digit receptions, and his dozen on Sunday were a single-game career high. With stat lines of 6-127-1 and 12-121 over his last two games, Green will be a top-shelf fantasy WR1 when the Bengals take on the Buccaneers next.
