Vick, Peterson lead countless owners to fantasy playoffs

Michael Vick, QB, Eagles

Vick continued to pile up the fantasy points on Thursday night, posting 302 passing yards, 48 rushing yards and three total touchdowns in a win over the Houston Texans. He scored on a 1-yard pass to LeSean McCoy, a 2-yard run and a 5-yard pass to Owen Schmitt. The versatile quarterback has now scored 20-plus points in all but one of the games where he's seen the majority of the Eagles' offensive snaps and is a must-start in all fantasy leagues.

Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers

Rodgers continued to shine in the stat sheets in Week 13, posting 298 yards and three touchdowns in a blowout win over the 49ers. The talented quarterback out of California connected on scores of 57, 61 and 1 yards, two of which went to his favorite target in the pass attack, Greg Jennings. Rodgers has now scored an average of over 28 fantasy points on in his last four games. He's been well worth the first-round pick that owners spent on him in drafts.

Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seahawks

Where did this performance come from? Lynch, who had averaged an awful 4.5 fantasy points on in his last seven games, exploded for 83 rushing yards and three scores in a blowout win over the Carolina Panthers. The one-time fantasy star found the end zone on a pair of 1-yard runs and scored a 22 yarder in the fourth quarter. Chances are that Lynch won't repeat this sort of stat line again, but he's still worth adding in most formats if you need backfield depth.

Adrian Peterson, RB, Vikings

Injured ankle? What injured ankle? Peterson looked like his usual self against the Buffalo Bills, rushing for 107 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-14 destruction of his AFC East opponent. His scores came on runs of 2,3 and 43 yards. Peterson, who averaged an impressive 6.7 yards per carry in the contest, has now found the end zone a total of 12 times this season. Thankfully, owners don't have to worry about A.D.'s "bum" ankle for the stretch run and in the postseason.

Reggie Wayne, WR, Colts

Heading into Week 13, Wayne had scored double-digit fantasy points in just one of his previous seven games. His numbers were so pedestrian, in fact, that countless owners wondered if it was time to bench him altogether. Well, hopefully those owners stuck with the veteran wideout for at least one more week. Wayne posted a monster stat line against the Dallas Cowboys, posting 14 catches for 200 yards and one touchdown. It was his best stat line of the year.
