    A two-time champion in a hardcore keeper league, including some know-it-all media "experts", who just so happens to be 2-8 in said league this year, Adam Boedeker gives his fantasy expertise on a weekly basis.

    Stud of the Week

    Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS — In Griffin's last two outings, he hasn't been anything close to what he was over his first seven. The Steelers shutting him down? That's to be expected, but the Panthers? That wasn't. Now Griffin has a shot at redemption against a Philadelphia defense that has completely fallen apart, can't cover receivers downfield and can't tackle in the open field. Look out.

    Honorable mention: Carson Palmer, OAK (vs. NO); Felix Jones, DAL (vs. CLE); Darrius Heyward-Bey, OAK (vs. NO); Danny Amendola, STL (vs. NYJ).

    Dud of the Week

    Philip Rivers, QB, SD — Rivers is coming off a monster week, but let's not forget the way the last meeting between Rivers and the Denver Broncos ended. I know all too well and can remind you as I was defeated after entering the Monday night game with the lead and only Rivers remaining while the other team had no one. Then, Rivers lost the game for me and seemingly many others when he threw four interceptions and lost two fumbles. The Broncos defense is riding a hot streak right now, so it could be more of the same.

    Honorable mention: Joe Flacco, BAL (at PIT); Torrey Smith, BAL (at PIT); Michael Crabtree, SF (vs. CHI); Vick Ballard, IND (at NE).
