    1. 1
    2. Aaron

      Rodgers

      Packers vs Lions

      QB

    3. PASS YDS404

    4. PASS TD4

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS11

    7. RUSH TD0

    The Packers are 1-2 and can't afford to fall 2.5 games behind the Lions with a head-to head loss to boot. Rodgers won't let that happen.
    1. 2
    2. Peyton

      Manning

      Broncos at Cowboys

      QB

    3. PASS YDS423

    4. PASS TD3

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    Manning is on pace for 5,880 yards and 64 touchdowns this season. Yeah, he's having a nice start to the year.
    1. 3
    2. Drew

      Brees

      Saints at Bears

      QB

    3. PASS YDS410

    4. PASS TD3

    5. INT1

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    Going up against a strong Miami defense, Brees threw for 413 yards, four TDs and zero interceptions. He should have a field day against the Bears.

Running Backs

    1. 1
    2. LeSean

      McCoy

      Eagles at Giants

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS127

    4. RUSH TD1

    5. REC YDS36

    6. REC TD1

    The fact that we can safely call a game in which McCoy had 94 yards from scrimmage subpar shows how great he has been this year. He'll rebound against the Giants.
    1. 2
    2. Jamaal

      Charles

      Chiefs at Titans

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS82

    4. RUSH TD1

    5. REC YDS58

    6. REC TD1

    Charles kept on rolling last week, totaling 127 yards from scrimmage with a touchdown. He's every bit as good as advertised.
    1. 3
    2. Matt

      Forte

      Bears vs Saints

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS94

    4. RUSH TD1

    5. REC YDS56

    6. REC TD0

    Forte ran for 95 yards and a TD on just 14 carries and caught another four passes for 22 yards. He's a top-five running back.

Wide Receivers

    1. 1
    2. Calvin

      Lions at Packers

      WR

    3. REC YDS118

    4. REC TD2

    Johnson had four catches for 44 yards and a TD last week. He'll be happy to not see Charles Tillman across from him this week.
    1. 2
    2. Julio

      Jones

      Falcons vs Jets

      WR

    3. REC YDS81

    4. REC TD2

    Jones hasn't been 100 percent most of the season, but that doesn’t stop him from putting up big numbers.
    1. 3
    2. Victor

      Cruz

      Giants vs Eagles

      WR

    3. REC YDS131

    4. REC TD1

    It has been a terrible year for this offense as a whole, but Cruz has been a monster. He'll keep that up against Philly.

      Saints at Bears

      TE

    2. Jordan

      Cameron

      Browns vs Bills

      TE

    3. REC YDS98

    1. 3
    2. Antonio

      Gates

      Chargers at Raiders

      TE

    3. REC YDS93

      Rams vs Jaguars

      K

    3. PAT2

    Zuerlein is 6-for-6 on the season, and the Rams should have plenty of scoring opportunities this week.

    2. Matt

      Prater

      Broncos at Cowboys

      K

    3. PAT4

      Eagles at Giants

      K

    3. PAT3
