Sunday Stars -- Week 9

1) RB Chris Johnson - Titans
Vs. Bills

It appears we have a bit of a misunderstanding here. As I explained a few weeks ago, that "Running backs to like" feature isn't a "sit or start" thing, more of an "expect this dude to go ballistic" thing. And, how 'bout it, Johnson did indeed go crazy on Sunday.

132 yards rushing, 100 yards receiving, two touchdowns. Not surprising but surely impressive. If these numbers hold up, we're going to have a hell of a debate on our hands for the 2010 No. 1 overall pick between Johnson and Adrian Peterson.


2) WR Randy Moss - Patriots
Vs. Colts

This game will always be remembered for a) the Pats blowing a huge fourth quarter lead, and b) Bill Belichick's controversial fourth-and-two call. But fantasy players may remember it for a different reason: it could be the day Moss cemented himself as the league's top receiver once again.

We get too obsessed with youth in sports. Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Calvin Johnson are the hot new names, but don't forget Moss. He's been doing it for a decade, and he's still going strong. At this point, he could be the second best receiver in NFL history.

In his last four games, Moss has 524 yards and six touchdown. The man is on fire right now.
