Drew Brees, QB, Saints
Brees made the Indianapolis Colts look like ponies on Sunday night, recording an impressive 325 yards and five touchdowns while completing a ridiculous 88.6 percent of his passes. The veteran out of Purdue hit on scoring strikes of 14, 4, 6, 4 and 2 yards, with two apiece going to Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham. What's even more amazing is that he put up those numbers in less than three quarters. Brees finished with a solid 33 fantasy points overall.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers
Rodgers continued his dominance of the competition this week, posting 335 yards and three touchdowns in a 33-27 win over the Minnesota Vikings. His scores came on a 2-yard pass to John Kuhn, a 79-yard strike to Greg Jennings and a 2-yard connection with Jermichael Finley. Based on his current totals, the fantasy stud will finish the season with 5,421 yards and 52 total touchdowns. Rodgers is off next week before a game in San Diego in Week 9.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers
Remember when there was some concern about Roethlisberger in fantasy land? Well, those concerns have been put to bed. The veteran signal-caller ripped the Arizona Cardinals to shreds, throwing for 340 yards and three touchdowns in a 32-20 win. His scores came on passes of 12, 95 and 4 yards, the longest of which went to Mike Wallace. Roethlisberger has now thrown a combined nine touchdown passes in his last three contests.
Arian Foster, RB, Texans
Foster, the top fantasy player in 2010, went off against the Tennessee Titans with 115 rushing yards, 119 receiving yards and a trio of touchdowns in a 41-7 blowout. His scores came on a 78-yard pass from Matt Schaub, a 1-yard run and a 5-yard run. Foster, who put up a ridiculous 41.40 fantasy points on NFL.com, is among the top-scoring running backs in all of fantasy land despite missing most of the first three weeks of the season.
DeMarco Murray, RB, Cowboys
A Week 7 sleeper on NFL.com, Murray went nuts against the St. Louis Rams in the first significant action of his NFL career. With Felix Jones out of action, the rookie out of Oklahoma rushed for 253 yards, which broke Emmitt Smith's franchise record for rushing yards in a game, and scored on a 91-yard run. Owned in just 30.4 percent of NFL.com leagues, Murray will be a solid starter next week against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.
