Date Player
10/20/2014 Doug Baldwin, WR
Baldwin led Seattle with seven catches for 123 yards and a TD in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Baldwin should get more balls thrown his way from Russell Wilson now that disgruntled Percy Harvin has been shipped to the Jets - aka Siberia for fantasy receivers.
10/20/2014 Matthew Stafford, QB
Stafford threw two touchdown passes in the final 3:38, including the winner to Corey Fuller with 1:48 remaining, lifting the Lions over the New Orleans Saints 24-23 on Sunday.

Analysis: Stafford connected on 67.5 percent of his passes (27 of 40) despite Calvin Johnson's absence after completing 57.8 percent in his first two games this month. With 299 yards, he just missed topping 300 for the first time since the season opener. Protection continues to be a problem for Stafford. He was sacked three times and has been taken down 23 times in the last six games. Stafford was also intercepted twice and has six INTs to seven TDs in that six-game span.
10/20/2014 Marshawn Lynch, RB
Lynch ran 18 times for 53 yards against the Rams on Sunday. He added two receptions for 18 yards.

Analysis: Lynch has been held in check two weeks in a row and the Seahawks have started complaining about the officiating. He still should dominate a poor Carolina team next week.
10/20/2014 Russell Wilson, QB
Wilson became the first quarterback in NFL history with 300 yards passing and 100 yards rushing Sunday.

Analysis: Wilson rushed for 106 yards on seven carries and also passed for two touchdowns while going 23 for 36 for 313 yards, as he is developing into an elite fantasy performer.
10/20/2014 Kirk Cousins, QB
Unless Robert Griffin III is 100 percent ready to return from injury, Colt McCoy, not Cousins, will start at quarterback against the Dallas Cowboys next week.

Analysis: Griffin has been sidelined since dislocating his left ankle in Week 2 against Jacksonville. Cousins took over as the starter, but he was benched at halftime Sunday, when McCoy came in and led Washington to a come-from-behind 19-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans.
10/20/2014 Colt McCoy, QB
Unless Robert Griffin III is 100 percent ready to return from injury, McCoy will start at quarterback against the Dallas Cowboys next week.

Analysis: Griffin has been sidelined since dislocating his left ankle in Week 2 against Jacksonville. Kirk Cousins took over as the starter, but he was benched at halftime Sunday, when McCoy came in and led Washington to a come-from-behind 19-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans.
10/20/2014 C.J. Spiller, RB
Spiller has had surgery to repair a collarbone injury, and it's uncertain if his season is over.

Analysis: Marrone noted "all options are on the table," including placing Spiller on the injured reserve/designated to return list. Under that designation, Spiller wouldn't be eligible to return until Week 16.
10/20/2014 Peter Konz, C
The Atlanta Falcons have placed center Konz on injured reserve with a left knee injury.

Analysis: Konz is Atlanta's fourth starting offensive lineman to suffer a season-ending injury. Konz replaced Joe Hawley after Hawley and right tackle Lamar Holmes suffered season-ending injuries in a loss at Minnesota on Sept. 28. Left tackle Sam Baker was lost for the year in a preseason game.
10/20/2014 Jonathan Dwyer, RB
A Phoenix court has lowered the bond used to release Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer from jail after he was arrested on charges that he assaulted his wife during arguments at their apartment.

Analysis: Maricopa County Superior Court Commissioner Jeffrey Rueter on Monday reduced Dwyer's bond from $25,000 to $10,000 and removed a requirement that he wear an ankle monitoring bracelet. Dwyer has been out of jail since posting bail hours after his Sept. 17 arrest. Investigators say Dwyer broke his wife's nose with a head-butt during a July 21 argument, and the next day punched her and threw a shoe at his 17-month-old son, who wasn't injured.
10/20/2014 Andre Branch, DE
Branch is expected to miss six weeks with a groin injury.

Analysis: Losing Paul Posluszny for the season and Branch could be a significant setback for a defense that has played its best the last three weeks. The Jaguars have allowed two touchdowns in the last three games.
10/20/2014 Paul Posluszny, LB
The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without Posluszny for the rest of the season.

Analysis: Posluszny tore a pectoral muscle in his chest during Sunday's 24-6 win against Cleveland and will be placed on injured reserve. Posluszny sustained the injury early in the second half, but stayed in the game. He finished with 12 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery. The eighth-year pro leads the team with 69 tackles.
10/20/2014 Brandon Marshall, WR
Marshall called out himself and his teammates, especially quarterback and friend Jay Cutler, after Sunday's lackluster effort against Miami.

Analysis: Marshall is frustrated, and when that's the case he has no problem lashing out on others no matter how mellow he says he's become. This is obviously not a good situation for the Bears.
10/20/2014 Ronnie Hillman, RB
Hillman rushed for 74 yards and two touchdowns in Denver's victory over San Francisco.

Analysis: Hillman has filled in nicely for injured Broncos RB Montee Ball. He found the end zone for the first time Sunday, one week after rushing for 100 yards on 24 carries.
10/20/2014 Demaryius Thomas, WR
Thomas caught Peyton Manning's record-breaking 509th career touchdown pass in the second quarter as part of another huge night.

Analysis: Thomas caught eight passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns Sunday night.
10/20/2014 Peyton Manning, QB
Manning's record breaking night included 318 passing yards and four touchdowns.

Analysis: Manning posted a 157.2 passer rating Sunday night, his highest mark since joining Denver in 2012. The all-time touchdown record now sits at 510.
10/20/2014 Michael Floyd, WR
Floyd caught three passes for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Oakland.

Analysis: Floyd has scored in consecutive games for the first time in his career.
10/20/2014 Andre Ellington, RB
Ellington tallied 160 yards from scrimmage in Arizona's 24-13 victory over Oakland.

Analysis: Ellington is fast becoming a fantasy must-play. He rushed for 88 yards Sunday and added 72 yards receiving. He now has 653 total yards in six games this season.
10/20/2014 Carson Palmer, QB
Palmer threw for 253 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against Oakland.

Analysis: It was Palmer's first game against the Raiders since being traded following the 2012 season. Palmer has four touchdowns and one interception in two games since returning from injury.
10/20/2014 Ahmad Bradshaw, RB
Bradshaw found the end zone twice Sunday in Indianapolis' rout of Cincinnati.

Analysis: Bradshaw rushed for 52 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 36 yards and a touchdown. He leads the Colts with seven total touchdowns this season.
10/20/2014 Andrew Luck, QB
Luck passed for 344 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Indianapolis' fifth straight win.

Analysis: Luck's MVP-caliber season continued Sunday against Cincinnati. He leads the NFL with 19 touchdowns and 333 passing yards per game.
