Sunday Stars -- Week 5

1. WR Roddy White - Falcons
@ San Francisco

Dallas' Miles Austin actually put up better numbers - Austin finished with 10 catches, 250 yards, and two touchdowns - but White gets the nod because people actually, you know, start him in fantasy football.

Watching Matt Ryan and White tear up the San Francisco defense was a thing of beauty if you own them in fantasy. Let's just hope it doesn't happen next week against the Bears.

White started off this season slow, so it's good to see him finally break out. The first three games this year he only had 119 yards receiving and one touchdown. Against the 49ers alone he went for 210 yards and two touchdowns. This could be the start of something big for White and the Atlanta offense.

2. QB Donavon McNabb - Eagles
Vs. Tampa Bay

Remember all that talk about how McNabb was becoming expendable in Philly? I think we can put that to bed. These Eagles look as good as any team in the conference, but that's only the case with McNabb behind center. You think Kevin Kolb or Mike Vick could do what McNabb did on Sunday?

The Mount Carmel grad torched a porous Tampa secondary. He hooked up with rookie Jeremy Maclin for two touchdowns, and finished with 261 yards and three touchdowns on the day. This man is a starting quarterback, both in fantasy and real life.
