Quarterback Champs:Nick Foles- 22/28, 406 yards, 7 TDs; 3 Rush, 14 yards- 45.6 fantasy pointsWhat on Earth got into Nick Foles? WOW. Dude had 7 TDs in three quarters before being pulled due to a lopsided score…otherwise he could have had 8 or 9… He’s worth stashing because there’s a good chance he stays the starter even when Vick is 100 percent. Tom Brady- 23/33, 432 yards, 4 TDs-33.1 fantasy pointsAh, this is relieving for Brady owners! Brady always has huge games against the Steel curtain, and continued that trend on Sunday. He had 3 receivers over 100 yards, so that’s always nice. Interesting to see Dobson go for 130 and two scores and Kenbrell Thompkins as a healthy scratch.Case Keenum- 20/34, 350 yards, 3 TDs; 3 Rush, 26 yards– 28.6 fantasy pointsOur boy Keenum is making quite the case to stay the starter in Houston (see what I did there?). He absolutely targeted the crap out of Andre Johnson all game, making Andre look about 3-4 years younger. He’s now a worthy spot start, and you can even make the case to start him over guys like RG3, Matt Ryan, etc.Quarterback Chumps: Alex Smith- 19/29, 124 yards 0 TDs - 5.5 fantasy pointsWhat looked to be a nice little spot start opportunity here proved to be quite the contrary. Is it possible for a 9-0 team to be more BORING? Alex, no one is interested in seeing your 5 yard outs and bubble screens in the flats. Nothing more than consistently mediocre here… Andy Dalton- 32/53, 338 yards 0 TDs, 3 INTs, Fumble; 5 Rush, 12 yards- 6.6 fantasy pointsMan, the Dolphins brought some serious heat on our boy Dalton, no? Four turnovers is an equation for bad, and after posting three straight 300-yard, three touchdown performances in the previous three weeks, the red rocket was brought down to Earth on Thursday. Again, case and point why I hate Thursday games from a fantasy perspective.Matt Ryan- 20/27, 219 yards 1 TD, 3 INTs – 6.8 fantasy pointsThe absence of Roddy and Julio is REALLY coming to light in Atlanta. There is only so much Harry Douglas and the Gonzo, the “ageless wonder” can do… Temper expectations moving forward. Running Back Champs:Zac Stacy- 27 Rush, 127 yards, 2 TDs; 6 Rec, 51 yards- 29.8 fantasy points.Did Stacy did break through into the low end RB1 category? I think he just did…33 touches for this beast, and he looked good doing it. That’s 264 yards in the last two weeks. Can somebody give this guy a happy meal!? Chris Johnson- 23 Rush, 150 yards, 2 TDs; 3 Rec, 20 yards- 29 fantasy pointsThis could be the beginning of this “Chris Johnson trend” we are becoming accustomed to. What’s this trend that you speak of? It’s the whole “non-existent for the first half of the season” thing, and then going absolutely H.A.M. the second half.Adrian Peterson- 25 Rush, 140 yards TD; 3 Rec, 37 yards – 23.7 fantasy pointsAnother beast of a day for AP. He continues to dominate on a team where is continues to be the lone bright spot.Running Back Chumps:Bilal Powell- 9 Rush, 29 yards- 2.9 fantasy pointsPowell owners are looking at the Ivory stat line and saying, “NOT COOL.” He’s not making a case to get the lion’s share of the carries with his lackluster three yards per carry. After the game Ivory had (18 for 139 and a score), it looks like Powell is going to have a view from the back seat for now.Ryan Mathews- 7 Rush, 34 yards- 3.4 fantasy pointsJust when we thought Mathews was starting to get a nice little workload (21 carries in week 7), THIS happens. Seven touches. The whole game. Awful.Ray Rice- 11 Rush, 17 yards; 3 Rec, 21 yards- 3.8  fantasy points“Hey diddle diddle, Ray Rice up the middle?” Not so much. I’m now raising the Ray Rice panic meter level to “code orange.” This isn’t good… Wide Receiver Champs:Andre Johnson- 9 Rec, 229 yards, 3 TDs- 40.9 fantasy pointsWhelp, Johnson picked a great day to get his first touchdown…and his second…and third. Case Keenum is clearly developing great chemistry with Mr. Johnson, and if you watched the game, it was absolutely STUPID how many times he was looking #80’s way. Keep feedin’ the guy!Riley Cooper- 5 Rec, 139 yards, 3 TDs- 33.7 fantasy pointsI’ve been saying it all along- Foles LOVES him some Riley Cooper! I’d temper expectations with Cooper moving forward, but he’s definitely a flex-worthy option as long as Foles is at the helm.T.Y. Hilton- 7 Rec, 121 yards, 3 TDs- 30.1 fantasy pointsThe Colts needed someone to step up in a big way with Reggie Wayne’s season-ending injury, and Hilton is living up to the challenge. His deep-threat reputation held true with a 58-yard TD BOMB, but proved in this game to be present in all areas of the pass game. Give this guy the green arrow!Wide Receiver Chumps:Nate Washington- 0 Catches, 0 yards- ZERO fantasy pointsMother GOOSE over here…Vincent Jackson- 2 Rec, 11 yards- 1.1 fantasy pointsHey, you were warned this was a tough start, going against Richard Sherman and the Seahawks secondary…Golden Tate- 3 Rec, 29 yards- 2.9 fantasy pointsLooked like Bronze Tate today…Dude is usually fantasy relevant when he’s catching touchdowns. If I own him, I’m packaging him and dealing him before the hair pulling starts…Terrance Williams- 2 Rec, 33 yards- 3.3 fantasy pointsA slow day for Terrance, as his quiet little four-game touchdown streak comes to an end. Still love the guy going forward as a mid/low end WR2 in that passing Cowboys offense. Tight End Champs:Jimmy Graham- 9 Rec, 116 yards, 2 TDs- 23.6 fantasy pointsJimmy G is unreal, plain and simple. Even when he’s banged up, he goes off. Can we give him a Transformer nickname like Megatron? Yeah, let’s get on that. Rob Gronkowski- 9 Rec, 143 yards, TD- 20.3 fantasy pointsHe’s going to get 10+ targets every game, bro. He’s gonna continue to get red zone looks ALL DAY from Tom Brady, bro. Haha, something about Gronk makes me wanna say bro all the time. Start him with confidence every week, despite Brady’s inconsistent play.Jason Witten- 8 Rec, 102 yards, TD- 16.2 fantasy pointsOk, this is more like it. I have Witten in a ton of leagues, so this was nice to see. He’s had three really good weeks, and surprise, surprise, they have ALL been at home. As a fantasy football aficionado, these trends are worth noting.Tight End Chumps:Jordan Cameron- 1 Rec, 4 yards- 0.4 fantasy pointsIs J-Cam coming down to Earth? This was one of the concerns about the unproven guy. Can he sustain these numbers throughout the whole season? The next few weeks should be the litmus test.Delanie Walker- 2 Rec, 13 yards- 1.3 fantasy pointsTyler Eifert- 3 Rec, 14 yards- 1.4 fantasy points**Note: Fantasy points denoted are standard, non-PPR scoring.Follow me on Twitter: @FBNationGrizzle
