LeVeon Bell, Steelers – Rumbled over the Titans for 204 yards and a TD, plus 18 yards on 2 receptions.
Jamaal Charles, Chiefs – Raced for 159 yards and 2 TDs, and added 19 yards on 2 receptions. We’ll forgive the fumble.

Alshon Jeffery, Bears – Soared in PPR leagues with 11 catches for 135 yards and a TD.

Jermaine Gresham, Bengals – Scored on both his catches, which went for just 13 yards.

Packers – Accumulated 3 sacks and 4 turnovers, and scored TDs on a punt return, an INT return and a fumble return.

This was a great week to play against…

Kyle Orton, Bills – Stymied by the Dolphins with just 193 yards, no scores and no turnovers.
Alex Smith, Chiefs – Passed for just 108 yards without a score (or a turnover).
Eli Manning, Giants – His 280-yard, 1-TD effort was outweighed by 5 INTs.
Peyton Manning, Broncos – His 389-yard, 1-TD, 2-INT outing wasn’t horrible, just so much worse than normal.
Matt Stafford, Lions – Just 183 passing yards and an INT without a TD.

Matt Asiata, Vikings – Once again, can’t be trusted after combining for 14 yards and no TDs.
Ahmad Bradshaw, Colts – Stuffed at the goal-line twice, and ended with 4 rushing yards and just 7 yards on 4 catches before leaving injured.
Raiders – Darren McFadden finished with 21 rushing yards while Maurice Jones-Drew had just 6.
Bobby Rainey, Bucs – Yielded to Charles Sims, gaining just 4 yards on the ground.

Jonathan Stewart, Panthers – Just 24 rushing and 15 receiving yards.
