- Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer had a good game for a change with 300 yards and two touchdowns plus two interceptions. He was playing a weak defense so we wouldn’t too much into this performance. However, with the Browns at 5-3, don’t look for Johnny Football anytime soon.
- In what could potentially be one of the first of many starts for Bucs running back Bobby Rainey, he ran for 87 yards plus a catch for 34 yards. Rainey will see better days this year but not much after.
- Bucs rookie receiver Mike Evans broke out with seven catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns. He could be a WR1 by the end of the year.
- With Mark Barron in St. Louis, Major Wright stepped in with 13 tackles. If he keeps this up, he could be considered a DB1 in the future.

- A new entry in the top five with Johnathan Cyprien. The top five in order is Harrison Smith, Morgan Burnett, Cyprien, Earl Thomas, and Mark Barron.
- The big drops include Eric Berry from 2 to 6 and rookie Deone Bucannon from 21 to 27.
- Some risers include Malcolm Jenkins from 24 to 20; Antrelle Rolle from 32 to 26; and Major Wright from 34 to 30.

- Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery had one catch for 27 yards along with a 15 yard rush. Jeffery will be a boom-or-bust fantasy player with Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte on the team as there’s only one ball to go around. But he’s still a great dynasty stash as the 29-year old Marshall will have to move on at some point.
- Bears running back Matt Forte had over 100 total yards to go along with six catches. He would have had more yards but the Bears insist on keeping MIchael Bush, and his 1.8 YPC, involved. So frustrating.
- Meanwhile, the entire Giants offense continues to flounder. The exception was Brandon Jacobs and his 106 yards and touchdown. It won’t last folks. Trade him now if you can.
- One bright spot is Hakeem Nicks lead the team in targets with eight and it wasn’t even close. Maybe since their season is over they’re allowing Nicks to audition for his free agency. He’s a good buy-low candidate as he’s slated to land somewhere else, presumably with less competition, next year.
- Bears safety Major Wright had 11 more tackles to bring his season total to 45. He’s on pace for over 100 and is playing well just in time for his free agent year.
