Another week in the NFL is in the books on the young 2012 season and already we have seen some monster performances, as well as spectacular let downs. The AFC saw dominating wins from the likes of the Houston Texans and the Miami Dolphins, so it should come as no surprise that they both featured a player that was named an AFC Player of the Week on each side of the ball.
On the offensive side of the ball, Reggie Bush, who I wrote about in greater detail yesterday, continued to turn his career around with a USC-like performance against the Oakland Raiders that has the highlight reel going into overdrive once again.

HOUSTON You expected the Houston Texans team that lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the playoffs would come back better this season. Matt Schaub would be the quarterback instead of T.J. Yates. Andre Johnson would be fully healthy. Instead of Jacoby Jones the Texans would have someone who was less of a knucklehead. Mario Williams didn't play in the game anyway.
So, yes, the Texans...
Miami running back Daniel Thomas has passed concussion tests and was back at practice on Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:Rookie Lamar Miller served as Reggie Bush's backup last week, but neither Miller or Thomas has any fantasy value while Bush is playing at such a high level.
With week 2 all wrapped up and many of us most likely behind in our weekly picks as there were a lot of upsets, hopefully the same does not go for your fantasy team. If this isn’t the case, hopefully I can give you some insight as I present to you my top 5 half backs going into week 3.
