Jahvid Best, RB, Lions: Who was the best of the Best in Week 2? How about the Lions running back, who put up a ridiculous nine catches, 232 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns in a 35-32 loss to the Eagles. His scores came on a 14-yard run, a 75-yard reception and a 2-yard run. Overall he finished with an Arian Foster-like 41.20 points on Best, a rookie out of California, has now scored five times in just two games. He'll go up against the Vikings in Week 3.

Jason Snelling, RB, Falcons: Michael Turner started and was on his way to a monster performance before a groin ailment landed him on the sidelines. Enter Snelling, who took over and went wild in his absence. The bruising runner caught five passes, recorded 186 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns in a 41-7 blowout of the Cardinals. In all, Snelling posted 36.60 fantasy points. Unfortunately, he was owned in 0.8 percent of leagues.

LeSean McCoy, RB, Eagles: Note to fantasy owners - if your players face the Lions, be sure to start 'em. McCoy went off for four catches, 120 rushing yards and three touchdowns in what turned out to be a scoreboard scorcher. The Pittsburgh product scored on runs of 4, 14 and 46 yards and looked a lot like the one-time fantasy superstar he replaced in the Eagles backfield, Brian Westbrook. McCoy's 30.80 fantasy points no doubt helped countless owners to a huge win.

Matt Schaub, QB, Texans: Were you worried about Schaub after his mediocre Week 1 performance? Well, he's put those worries to rest. Schaub was back with a vengeance at FedEx Field, completing 38-of-52 passes for an unreal 497 yards with three scores in a win over the Redskins. His touchdown passes came on connections of 5, 6 and 34 yards, the last one going to his superstar wide receiver, Andre Johnson. Schaub finished with a terrific 30.08 fantasy points in all.

Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers: Rodgers, who I proclaimed my fantasy football MVP in the preseason, looked every bit the superstar against the Bills with 255 yards and three total touchdowns. His scores came on passes of 7 and 30 yards and a 9-yard run. Amazingly, Rodgers was able to finish with 26.20 fantasy points despite the fact that he completed just 19 passes in the contest. He'll remain a must-start quarterback in Week 3 against the Bears on Monday night.
