Fantasy football has almost grown into as much of a sport as real football. It seems like almost everyone has at least one fantasy team and some people have a multitude of teams. Every league has a little bit different scoring system, but here are the week’s studs and duds at every position.

QB Stud: Ben Roethlisberger pulled in 30 points this week against the 49ers.

QB Dud: Andrew Luck fell flat against the Jets throwing 3 interceptions and netting only 8 points.

RB Stud: DeAngelo Williams rushed for 77 yards on 20 attempts and made it into the end zone three times netting 28 points.

RB Dud: Frank Gore came up short this week in fantasy netting only three points while giving up a big opportunity by fumbling on the one yard line.

WR Stud: Larry Fitzgerald and Travis Benjamin both had out standing weeks at the WR position. Tied for the league high of 28 points apiece, Fitzgerald caught three TDs against the Bears while Travis Benjamin caught two TD passes and took a kick back against the Titans. 

WR Dud: This week there was no obvious dud at the WR position.

TE Stud: Crockett Gillmore had 20 points this week making him a surprise winner of TE Stud of the week.

TE Dud: Martellus Bennett of Chicago only net four points this week despite being an outstanding receiving tight end in a offense with very limited receiving options right now due to injuries.

Defense Stud: The Cowboys defense netted 20 points in what was the most defensive game of the week.

Defense Dud: The 49ers defense gave up 43 points and finished at negative eight fantasy points for the week.

K Stud: Stephen Gostkowski net 20 points making 4 field goals against the Bills, his long being 50 yards.

K Dud: Adam Vinatieri missed a field goal that could have given the Colts one last chance against the Jets making him the dud of the week at kicker.
