Darren McFadden – Darren McFadden has been one of the most pleasant surprises coming out of 2010 fantasy football drafts. Injured in preseason, he was going to lose his job to Michael Bush. He now ranks in the top five in fantasy running back production and had another jewel in week 14. McFadded ran for 123 yards, gained 86 more through the air, and accounted for three touchdowns.
DeSean Jackson – DeSean Jackson almost single handedly beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. He caught only four receptions but ended up with 210 yards and a touchdown. The guy was a stud in one of the biggest games of the season for both Philadelphia and fantsay football.
Michael Turner – Turner continues to pick up a lot of yards on the ground after a slow start to the season. He raced for 112 yards in week 14 and scored three touchdowns as Atlanta put way Carolina. Turner now has ten touchdowns in his last seven games, heating up for fantasy football owners down the stretch.
Deion Branch – This guy’s career was supposed to be over with. He left New England after a big Super Bowl win and then disappeared. He couldn’t catch a pass in Seattle to save his life and then something magical happened. New England got rid of Randy Moss and brought Branch back. Branch ended up with eight receptions for 151 yards and a touchdown in week 14. Fantasy football owners have to be happy he is back with Tom Brady again.
Jason Campbell – Where has this performance been at all season? Jason Campbell went up against the decent Jacksonville Jaguars defense and was almost perfect. Oakland lost, thanks in large part to Maurice Jones Drew, but Campbell threw for 324 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. Raise your hands if he was in your starting lineup this week? Anyone? Hello?

Steve Johnson – A couple of weeks back, Steve Johnson dropped a sure-fire touchdown reception that would have given Buffalo a big win. He said after the game he would never forget it. That might still be bothering him because he has not caught a touchdown reception since week 11, when he had three. Over the past three games, Johnson is averaging four receptions a game for 49 yards. Fans who banked on the young star are being burned now.
Matt Forte – Matt Forte still can’t seem to maintain a successful season. He is up and down all year with only two games over 100 yards and only five touchdowns on the season. He started the year as a keeper but is finishing as a below average running option. He carried the ball nine times for 25 yards against New England in week 14.
Miles Austin – Miles Austin cannot wait to get Tony Romo back on the field, possibly by week 16. Austin finished the game against Philadelphia with only two receptions for 22 yards. He has been invisible since Romo went down, only breaking 50-yards once since week eight.

Terrell Owens – TO has been the best wide receiver for Cincinnati almost the entire season but disappeared when fantasy football owners needed him the most.
