The Best

Quarterbacks

Kurt Warner- 342 yards, 2 TD

As he has been prone to do in the past, Warner tore apart his old friends in St. Louis on Sunday. Don't be that surprised: Warner has been one of the most reliable fantasy quarterbacks all season. He ranks second in touchdown passes, with 16, and QB Rating. It's safe to say the Cards have become the new Bengals. Arizona's offense is as explosive as any team in the league. You want their players on your fantasy team.

Donavon McNabb- 349 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT

What's up with Seattle's defense? Opposing quarterbacks have been posting big numbers all season. McNabb was no different on Sunday. He led all quarterbacks in passing yards.

Running back

Adrian Peterson- 139 yards, 1 TD

When Peterson puts together a game like this, it makes you wonder why it doesn't happen every week. He's the most talented runner in the league, and was a top-two fantasy selection in draft for that reason.

Brandon Jacobs- 117, 1 TD

Jacobs has been a beast this year. His seven touchdowns rank third among running backs. The Cowboys had no chance against him this weekend, as Jacobs averaged 6.9 yards per carry.

Receivers

Donald Driver- 136 yards, 1 TD

The Titans D is normally stifling, but Aaron Rodgers and his receivers were able to have some success yesterday. Let's hope Rex Grossman can do the same next week.

Derrick Mason- 136 yards, 1 TD

There was a time a few years ago when Mason was a top notch fantasy receiver. He's remained productive into the end of his career, and is currently owned in 61 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues. If Joe Flacco continues to mature, Mason could be a good add if he's unowned in your league.

The Worst

QB Brett Favre- 201 yards, 1 INT

Congrats to Favre on interception 300. He deserves it.

RB Brian Westbrook- 61 yards rushing

Maybe that injury isn't healed quite yet. Don't expect big things from Westbrook next week against the Giants.
