Bengals' Andy Dalton: Tosses three touchdowns against St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Dalton completed 20 of 27 passes for 233 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's win over St. Louis.

After posting his second game of more interceptions than touchdowns in Week 10, Dalton has tossed five touchdowns to just one pick in last last two games. Dalton has emerged this season as a top-flight quarterback, with eight games with multiple touchdowns and six games with at least three total scores. For the season, Dalton ranks among the top eight quarterbacks in the league in passing yards, touchdowns and quarterback rating.

Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Throws for 245 yards in Week 12 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Winston completed 20-of-36 passes for 245 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also gained 27 yards on three rushes.

The 2015 first overall pick came nowhere close to replicating the extraordinary success he enjoyed in a Week 11 blowout of the Eagles, and finished the contest with a mediocre 51.3 quarterback rating. Winston also threw an interception for the second time in three weeks after previously having enjoyed a four-game stretch without a pick. He did also manage a career-high 27 yards on the ground. Winston and the Bucs face off with the Falcons in a home tilt in Week 13.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Leaves game late with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Roethlisberger left late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game at Seattle with a concussion. Before exiting, he completed 36 of 55 passes for 456 yards, with one touchdown and a pair of interceptions.

In a less than ideal situation or environment, Roethlisberger threw for over 300 yards for the sixth time in eight games, although he'll have to pass the concussion protocol this week. If he's able to play next week, he's got a decent matchup against Indianapolis, but faces the Bengals in Week 14 and the Broncos in Week 15. After that, the Steelers finish the season against a pair of soft pass defenses in the Ravens and Browns.

Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws a career-high five touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Wilson completed 21 of 30 passes for 345 yards and a career-high five touchdowns in Sunday's 39-30 win over Pittsburgh. The five passing scores also tied a franchise record.

Wilson was coming off his most productive game of the season, but was even better Sunday against a hard-hitting Steelers' defense, capping his huge fantasy day with an 80-yard touchdown to Doug Baldwin at 2:01 of the fourth quarter. On a negative note, Wilson lost one of his top targets, as TE Jimmy Graham suffered a knee injury, and had to be carted off the field. In somewhat of a disappointing fantasy campaign, Wilson threw for over 300 yards for the first time this season. It will probably be tough for him to duplicate his five-touchdown explosion next week at Minnesota, although things look good for his owners during the fantasy playoffs, as the fourth-year QB will face Baltimore in Week 14 and Cleveland in Week 15.

Rams' Nick Foles: Picked off three times against the Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Foles completed 30 of 46 passes for 228 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Well, there was a reason the Rams tried going in another direction last week. Pushed back into the starting lineup due to Case Keenum's concussion, Foles was held touchdown-less for the fourth time in five games and recorded his second multi-interception game of the season. He ranks 27th in the league in passing yards and 30th in touchdowns on the year, making him one of just a handful of quarterbacks with next-to-no fantasy value. It would not be a shock if he finds himself behind Keenum again once the latter is healthy enough to play.

49ers' Blaine Gabbert: Throws for over 300 yards against Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Gabbert completed 25 of 36 passes for 318 yards, with one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 19-13 loss to Arizona. He also had one rush for 11 yards.

Gabbert kept the 49ers in the game against a tough opponent, but was unable to lead a comeback in the end, completing a 19-yard pass in Cardinals' territory on 4th-and-20 late in the game. He has been surprisingly competent since taking over as the 49ers' starting QB in Week 9, and he's got a favorable matchup at Chicago next week, although the Bears' defense has played much better as of late.

Cardinals' Carson Palmer: Runs for game-winning TD
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Palmer completed 24 of 40 passes for 271 yards with no touchdowns in Sunday's 19-13 win at San Francisco. His eight-yard touchdown run at the 2:28 mark of the fourth quarter broke a 13-13 tie.

Palmer had been on fire as of late, throwing for over 300 yards in his previous three games, with a 11:4 TD:INT ratio during that span, but surprisingly struggled Sunday in a favorable matchup. In fact, it was the first time all season that Palmer failed to throw at least one touchdown pass. Even with Sunday's fantasy dud, he's just five touchdowns away from reaching his previous season high of 32 passing scores (set back in 2005 while with Cincinnati), and he'll attempt to get closer to that mark in St. Louis next week.

Titans' Marcus Mariota: Struggles despite three touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Mariota completed 17-of-37 passes for 218 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday against Oakland. He added seven rushing yards on one carry.

Mariota's line outside the three touchdowns was very ugly, but the rookie's struggles are nothing new. He has topped 250 yards passing just once in his last six appearances, and also took a step back with his legs after topping 20 yards on the ground in each of the last two games. Mariota completed just six of the 20 passes he threw to wide receivers, and it's going to be hard to trust him until he demonstrates the ability to hit outside throws.

Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Throws for 302 yards against the Giants
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Cousins completed 20 of 29 passes for 302 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Giants. He ran the ball four times for a yard and a touchdown and fumbled during the game.

Cousins had multiple interceptions in four of Washington's first six games this season, but has been picked off just twice in the five games since. He has posted his only two multi-touchdown games of the season during that same five-game stretch. Though he has been more careful with the football as of late, Cousins has not emerged as a big enough producer in the passing game to warrant much attention in fantasy circles. His abilities as a runner are noteworthy, though, as his three rushing scores this season are tied for the team lead and trail only Cam Newton and Jameis Winston among quarterbacks this season.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Leads Raiders past Titans
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Carr completed 24-of-37 passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 24-21 win at Tennessee. He also fumbled twice, losing one.

Carr sports an excellent 24-to-6 touchdown to interception ratio, and has done a good job taking care of the ball even while factoring in his three lost fumbles this season. The sophomore quarterback overcame a forgettable game from usually-reliable receiver Michael Crabtree by featuring Seth Roberts and Amari Cooper, and Carr's ability to get different receivers involved is just the latest demonstration of his increased maturity as a passer.
