Kolb, Maclin headline fantasy's top performers in Week 6

Who was the Fantasy Player of the Week? Vote on the top performers and decide who was the most valuable player!

Kevin Kolb, QB, Eagles

Kolb, who completed 79 percent of his passes, threw for an impressive 326 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-17 win over the Falcons. He hit on a scoring strike of 34 yards to DeSean Jackson and connected with Jeremy Maclin on touchdowns of 8 and 83 yards. Despite his impressive performance, though, Kolb will remain the second quarterback on the depth chart behind Michael Vick. At best, owners who have Vick could add Kolb as a sort of handcuff.

Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers

Concussion? What concussion? Rodgers put up a great stat line against the Dolphins, throwing for 313 yards with two total touchdowns in a 23-20 loss to the Dolphins. His passing score came on an 86-yard connection with Greg Jennings, who broke out of his recent slump with six catches for 133 yards. Rodgers also found the end zone on a 1-yard run. The talented signal-caller is now on pace to finish the season with better than 4,100 passing yards and an impressive 35 total touchdowns.

Arian Foster, RB, Texans

Foster more than made up for his dud performance in Week 5, putting up six receptions, 97 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns in a win over the Chiefs. His scores came on runs of 2 yards and 1 yard, and both came in the fourth quarter of a close contest. The top running back in fantasy football, Foster has been an absolute dream come true for owners who stole him in drafts. He has a bye upcoming in Week 7 before facing a great matchup against the Colts on Monday Night Football on Nov. 1.

Dwayne Bowe, WR, Chiefs

Bowe had been a major disappointment this season, but he looked like a superstar against the Texans. The veteran caught six passes for 108 yards and scored two touchdowns in what was a 35-31 loss. Bowe's two scores came on passes of 17 and 42 yards from Matt Cassel, who also helped owners with 201 yards and three touchdowns. With a game against a porous Jaguars pass defense next week, don't hesitate to use Bowe as a starting fantasy wideout in Week 7.

Jeremy Maclin, WR, Eagles

Maclin had a monster game against the Falcons, catching seven passes for 159 yards with two touchdowns. Maclin, who saw more opportunities after Jackson was lost to a concussion, scored on receptions of 8 and 83 yards from Kolb. A preseason sleeper on NFL.com, he has now scored six touchdowns this season. Based on his current numbers, Maclin is on pace to finish with an impressive 1,109 yards and 16 touchdown catches.
