Week Five: studs and duds

Week Five: studs and duds

Posted: Updated:

Studs

Arian Foster: The top running back in fantasy football did it again. Foster ran 29 times for 152 yards and a touchdown. He also caught a pass for 16 yards.

Andrew Luck: The top pick in the draft has led two comeback wins in five weeks. His latest performance, a 31-for-55, 362 yard, two touchdown performance has Indy fans saying Peyton who?

Jamaal Charles: Charles toted the rock 30 times against a tough Ravens defense bludgeoning them for 140 yards. He may not have found the endzone, but the feat didn't go unnoticed.

Ahmad Bradshaw: The usually pedestrian Ahmad Bradshaw reached 100 yards rushing only once in his last 18 games played dating back to the 2010 season. We aren't sure if it was actually him that piled up 200 yards against the Browns, but someone with the name of Ahmad Bradshaw did just that.

Marques Colston: Was it something I said? After a pathetic first three weeks that saw my team get 10 catches for 160 yards and no touchdowns, I traded Colston. Since leaving my team he has blown up to the tune of 18 catches 284 yards and three touchdowns. Thanks for that.

Duds:

Andre Johnson: One lousy catch? That's it? The oft injured Johnson has averaged just two catches for 48 yards the last three weeks and has only two touchdowns for a team that is undefeated.

Michael Vick:

Dear Mr. Vick,

I just don't understand why you don't want me. It seems like you don't want to hang on to me. Do you not remember that you can't score without me? If you really feel you can do your job without me, go ahead.

Sincerely,

Your football

Cam Newton: The only thing that has sucked more than Cam Newton's attitude lately is his stat line. 141 yards passing was all that Newton could muster against Seattle. While we know the Seahawks defense is tough, he only generated 42 yards on the ground as well.

Chris Johnson: The man the ‘duds' portion of this weekly list was named after returns. A week after rushing 25 times for 141 yards against Houston, CJ2K put up another 24 yard performance against the Vikings. Save the game against the Texans, his totals have been 4, 17, 24 and 24 yards.

Ryan Fitzpatrick: Fitz put up a stinker against Frisco on Sunday. 16-for-26 with 126 yards passing is plenty to get listed on the bad side of ‘studs and duds'.
