Who was the Fantasy Player of the Week? Vote on the top performers and decide who was the most valuable player!
Tom Brady, QB, Patriots
So much for Brady not being able to exploit a tough matchup without Randy Moss! The veteran quarterback went off against the Steelers, throwing for 350 yards with four total touchdowns in a win at Heinz Field. His scores came on passes of 19, 9 and 25 yards -- all to Rob Gronkowski -- and a 3-yard run. This was the first huge stat line that Brady has compiled for fantasy owners since Moss was traded, so it was certainly a welcomed sight.
Matt Cassel, QB, Chiefs
In fantasy football, garbage-time points are just as good as points scored during a close game. With the Chiefs down big throughout their contest against the Broncos, Cassel was able to put up a fat stat line in what was a blowout. The veteran quarterback threw for 447 yards and tossed four touchdown passes (5, 15, 11, 22 yards) in a game that saw a combined 78 points. Cassel has now thrown for multiple scores in four of his last five games.
Kyle Orton, QB, Broncos
No, that isn't John Elway playing quarterback for the Broncos. It's Orton, and he's producing at an incredibly high level both for his team and fantasy owners. He put up an impressive 296 yards and four touchdowns in a win over the Chiefs, connecting with Knowshon Moreno, Jabar Gaffney and Brandon Lloyd (2) on his scoring passes. In a season that has seen a lot of "lesser" players putting up huge numbers, Orton has become an elite fantasy option.
Fred Jackson, RB, Bills
Apparently, all Jackson needed to improve his mediocre fantasy value was a matchup with the Detroit Lions. The veteran runner blasted their porous run defense for six catches, 170 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in a 14-12 win. Jackson scored on a 1-yard run in the second quarter and a 16-yard pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick in the third quarter. His 27 fantasy points on NFL.com were three more than he had in his previous two games combined.
Dwayne Bowe, WR, Chiefs
Coming into this week's game, Bowe had averaged a mere 65 yards with no touchdowns in five career meetings with the Broncos. Well, he decided to make up for lost time in Week 10. The talented wideout from Louisiana State caught 13 passes for 186 yards and scored twice, connecting on passes of 15 and 22 yards from Cassel. Bowe has now found the end zone in six of his last seven games and nine times overall, making him a must-start in all leagues.
