-Robert Griffin III threw for only one score but also didn't turn it over which was a plus.  Only 10 rushing yards continue to reinforce however that he is being ordered to stay in the pocket and thus his 2012 fantasy football game has been neutered.

-Alfred Morris has been a far cry from what he was as an eye-opening rookie and now he is injured after rushing for only 71 yards on 16 carries with no scores.  Encores are almost always not as good.

-Wow Darren McFadden is hurt.  (Enter surprised look here).  Rashad Jennings caught 8 passes in place but didn't run well at all with only 45 yards on 15 carries.  Pick him up in PPR if need.

-Another game and another TD for Pierre Garcon who is entering underrated territory. 

-Peyton Manning is going to be on the most wining fantasy football teams this season easy.  The passing robot threw for 327 yards and four more scores Sunday.  Unreal.  Amazing.  Incredible.  Wish I had him 2.0.

-Demaryuis Thomas and Wes Welker each caught 2 touchdowns.  Thomas caught 9 balls for 86 and Welker 7 for 76.  Of course I own Eric Decker and Julius Thomas who didn't score.  Love this game.

-DeSean Jackson has come back to earth by catching only 2 passes for 34 yards. 

-Once again Tony Romo is having a great season in quiet fashion.  Threw 2 more touchdowns Sunday with both going to Dez Bryant (6 for 81).  Love the guy even though he is a Cowboy.

-Philip Rivers has been my backup all season in favor of Matt Ryan but I may want to start looking into that arrangement more as the Chargers passer threw for three more scores Sunday among his 401 yards.  Back to his old QB 1 fantasy football ways.

-Antonio Gates has been the prime beneficiary of Rivers' revival as he caught 10 passes for 136 yards and a score.  Still some life left in this duo.

-As I said Matt Ryan is my guy and I can't argue against 421 yards and 2 scores.  However Ryan should have had two more as he missed some easy goal-line tosses.  However with Roddy White looking better, Ryan should continue to pile up the stats.

-Kenbrell Thompkins is living up to the sleeper status as he caught 6 balls for 127 yards and a score.  Great athlete and seems like a big time fit with Tom Brady.  Upward and onward we go.

-Speaking of Brady he threw for a workmanlike 316 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Ho-hum.

-Yes I traded Tony Gonzalez before this week so I knew what was coming.  Thus catching 12 passes for 149 yards and two scores was no surprise.  If I still owned him he would have done nothing like he did the first three weeks.  That's how this goes.

-Speaking of White he did catch 3 passes for 28 yards which is still a far cry from what we are used to seeing.  It was better but not great.
