Team: 

Date Player
10/20/2014 Golden Tate, WR
Tate had a career-high 10 receptions and 154 yards in a 24-23 victory over New Orleans on Sunday, including a 73-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Analysis: The Lions have relied heavily on Tate with Calvin Johnson out the past two weeks, and you should too. He has 32 catches for 448 yards and two touchdowns in the last four games, and is among the league leaders with 48 receptions for 649 yards this season.
10/20/2014 Eli Manning, QB
Manning had a solid fantasy effort Sunday.

Analysis: Manning had three touchdown passes, completing 21 of 33 passes for 248 yards and also gaining 11 yards on a scramble. He has 14 TDs and is on pace for a career-high 32.
10/20/2014 Drew Brees, QB
Brees had at least 340 yards for the third straight game Sunday but New Orleans fell 24-23 in Detroit.

Analysis: Brees went 28 for 45 for 342 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. Despite racking up the yardage, the Saints quarterback has a lackluster 6-to-5 TD-to-INT ratio in the last three games. Brees does have two TDs in five consecutive games and at least one in 26 straight. He owns the NFL's longest streak at 54 games and has thrown at least one in 80 of the last 81.
10/20/2014 T.Y. Hilton, WR
Hilton went over 100 yards again on Sunday.

Analysis: Andrew Luck's favorite target followed his 223-yard performance with seven receptions and 107 yards in Indianapolis' victory over Cincinnati.
10/20/2014 Andy Dalton, QB
Dalton completed 18 of 38 passes for 126 yards in Cincinnati's loss to Indianapolis.

Analysis: Dalton struggled mightily against Indianapolis. His 3.32 yards per attempt Sunday marks the worst of his career.
10/20/2014 Greg Olsen, TE
Olsen had eight catches for 105 yards against the Packers on Sunday.

Analysis: Olsen has 20 receptions for 239 yards in the last three games.
10/20/2014 James Starks, RB
Starks left the game Sunday with a left ankle injury.

Analysis: Starks rushed for 36 yards and a TD on seven carries before he was hurt. His immediate status is uncertain.
10/20/2014 Philly Brown, WR
Brown suffered a concussion Sunday against the Packers.

Analysis: His status going forward is uncertain.
10/20/2014 Cam Newton, QB
In Sunday's loss to Green Bay, Newton, who had a career-high 17 carries last week, had 41 yards rushing on seven attempts. He passed for 205 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown for Carolina (3-3-1).

Analysis: Perhaps Newton's step back is in part due to the fact that the Packers' offense is rolling and he had to play from behind the entire game.
10/20/2014 Nick Novak, K
Novak kicked two field goals Sunday against Kansas City. He has now converted 31 consecutive field goal attempts.

Analysis: Novak moved pass John Carney for most consecutive field goals converted in team history. He is 14-for-14 this season.
10/20/2014 Aaron Rodgers, QB
Rodgers threw three TDs and was 19 of 22 for 255 yards before leaving early in the fourth quarter with the game well in hand Sunday.

Analysis: Rodgers finished Sunday with a quarterback rating of 154.5, and the Packers said he was just the second player in NFL history with a rating of 150 or more in two of the first seven games of the season. New England's Tom Brady also did it in 2007. This was Rodgers' fourth straight game with at least three touchdowns and no interceptions, tying Brady (2007) for longest streak in a single season.
10/20/2014 Philip Rivers, QB
Rivers completed 17 of 31 passes for 205 yards - his lowest total of the season - in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

Analysis: It was a rare off-week for Rivers, who tossed two touchdowns and one interception. He notched his lowest passer rating since Week 1.
10/20/2014 Randall Cobb, WR
Cobb torched the Carolina secondary for 121 yards and a score on six catches Sunday.

Analysis: Cobb is second in the NFL with eight TDs.
10/20/2014 Antonio Gates, TE
Gates caught three passes for 61 yards and one touchdown Sunday against Kansas City.

Analysis: Gates has again become a favorite end zone target for Philip Rivers. Gates has caught a touchdown in each of San Diego's last three games and now has seven scores this season. Sunday marked the 67th career TD pass from Rivers to Gates, the most in NFL history from a quarterback to a tight end.
10/20/2014 Jay Cutler, QB
Cutler was 21 of 34 for 190 yards and threw an interception and lost a fumble in Sunday's loss to Miami.

Analysis: Cutler has thrown seven interceptions in Chicago's four losses and none in its three defeats this season.
10/20/2014 Alex Smith, QB
Smith completed 19 of 28 passes for 221 yards and one touchdown in Kansas City's 23-20 win over San Diego.

Analysis: After tossing three interceptions in Week 1, Smith has been picked off only once in the five games since. He has nine touchdowns this season.
10/20/2014 Matt Forte, RB
Forte recorded 109 total yards and posted a touchdown running and receiving Sunday against Miami.

Analysis: Forte is certainly putting up first-round fantasy pick numbers.
10/20/2014 Jeremiah Ratliff, DT
Ratliff recorded a career-high 3 1/2 sacks Sunday.

Analysis: Ratliff has been the Bears best interior defensive linemen, but like all DTs, does not have consistent fantasy value.
10/20/2014 Jamaal Charles, RB
Charles rushed for 95 yards and one touchdown in Kansas City's victory over San Diego.

Analysis: Charles' performance moved him to the top of Kansas City's career rushing list with 6,113 yards. Charles has 345 yards from scrimmage and four total touchdowns this season.
10/20/2014 Ryan Tannehill, QB
Tannehill threw for 277 yards and two touchdowns, and the Dolphins got back on track with a 27-14 victory over the listless Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Analysis: He also rushed six times for 48 yards, and continues to prove he can be a multi-threat quarterback.
