Week Nine: Studs and duds

Week Nine: Studs and duds

Posted: Updated:

Studs:

Doug Martin:
Holy moly. 251 yards rushing and four touchdowns. That is flat out sick and a top five fantasy performance all-time. Martin is quickly becoming a top weekly back.

Adrian Peterson: Peterson is a freak. 182 yards and two touchdowns for a team with an anemic passing attack. Will AP be able to run through defenses who are saying to Christian Ponder "go ahead…pass the ball"?

Brandon Marshall: The Marshall plan in Chitown is moving along nicely. The Bears are 7-1 and Marshall went for 9 catches 122 yards and three touchdowns. A fantasy championship type of performance to be sure.

Carson Palmer:
Palmer propelled many teams to victory this past year. 414 yards and four touchdowns It is the first time this season that Palmer graces our studs and duds list. It may not be the last.

Mikel Leshoure:
Leshoure may have only ran for 70 yards, but his three touchdowns were impressive. We'll see if he can continue it against the Vikings who have allowed rushers to eclipse 100 yards in three consecutive games.

Duds:

Christian Ponder: No NFL player's last name reflects their most recent production than that of the Vikings signal caller. Two of his last three starts have resulted in less than 75 yards passing. You heard me right. And while the Lions are on the horizon, the Vikings face the Bears and Packers twice following the bye along with Houston and St. Louis.

Jamaal Charles:
Words can't describe how awful Jamaal Charles has treated his owners this season. He put in another stinker on Sunday. 12 carries for a whopping 39 yards is not going to get the job done. We don't like you Jamaal…we don't like  you.

Eli Manning:
Eli, Eli, Eli. You are supposed to be better than this. You have won two Super Bowls and you just gave your owners a 125 yard performance with no touchdowns. I really don't know what to think.

Dez Bryant: I know Dez was hurt, but then don't play. The Dez dispenser got clogged up and caught one pass for 15 yards. Time for Dez to change his security detail.

Hakeem Nicks:
One. It is the loneliest number as a song once pointed out, but it is also the number of catches Nicks had in last weeks game against Pittsburgh. We need a lot more than that…oh and would a touchdown catch be too much to ask?
