Aaron Rodgers - On Christmas night during championship week, A-Rod2 delivered. The Super Bowl MVP and most likely NFL regular season MVP, passed for 283 yards and 5 TDs. He was almost perfect on the night with 21 completions on 29 passes. If you survived his blunder last week, he won you a championship this week.
Tom Brady - He may have scored a few more fantasy points than A-Rod2 this week, but he's not getting the top spot on my list for his 1 yard TD plunges that put him over. Brady was lousy for the entire first half against the Dolphins before coming to life and leading a comeback. Enjoy the passing yards and points now Tom, you won't be facing the pushover AFC east in playoffs.
Matthew Stafford - Once again another HUGE day for Stafford who has clearly got his second wind after a shaky few games after the bye week. His 373 yards and 3 TD passes lead the Detroit Lions into the playoffs.
Cam Newton - It wasn't exactly a memorable passing day for Newton, although he DID break the single season passing record for rookies, but his 3 TD passes to go along with his 49 yard TD run, made for a monster fantasy performance.
Drew Brees - Another record breaker this week was Brees. He broke Dan Marino's single season passing yardage record with his 307 passing day on Monday night. His 4 TD passes most likely helped his fantasy owners enjoy the big night as well.
Adrian Peterson - This sucks. There's really no other way to say it. The best RB in football tore his ACL and MCL in a meaningless game (to him and the Vikings) on Christmas Eve and his Week One status for 2012 is in doubt. Devastating injury to a great RB and an even better guy. My prayers go out to him for a speedy recovery.
Tony Romo - I REALLY hope your season didn't ride on Romo this week. After 2 incompletions, Romo-licious came out of the game with a hand injury. However, it couldn't be that bad as he is expected to play this week. Romo owners, I've been there, it hurts.
Tim Tebow - Someone who didn't have a lousy game due to an injury was Tim Tebow. In what was easily the worst game of his NFL career, Tebow completed less than 50% of his passes and was picked off 4 times! Shocking for a guy that doesn't typically turn the ball over that much. The Broncos now need a win against Kyle Orton and the Chiefs to get into the playoffs.
Joe Flacco - I don't know what it is about the Browns, but Flacco, for whatever reason, does terrible against them. Just 11 of 24 for 132 yards and 2 TDs and 1 INT. How can he look so good some times and so lousy at others.
Eli Manning - Its funny how I don't hear anyone busting Eli's butt for completing way less than half his passes and completing just 9 and still winning. Eli was 9 of 27, but for 225 yards and a TD. Mostly thanks to a 99 yard TD pass to Victor Cruz.
