    A two-time champion in a hardcore keeper league, including some know-it-all media "experts", Adam Boedeker gives his fantasy expertise on a weekly basis.

    Stud of the Week

    Eli Manning, NYG, QB — Huh? You're really endorsing Eli Manning? That's what you're saying, right? Yeah, he's been horribly disappointing this season. I traded him early in the year as an opponent was hoping for a buy-low candidate, and so far I've been thrilled that I let him go. But this might be the week. Manning historically owns the Cowboys, and every top-notch quarterback has owned the Dallas defense this year as four have topped 400 yards and a fifth eclipsed 390.

    Honorable mention: Case Keenum, HOU (vs. JAC); Chris Ivory, NYJ (at BAL); Andre Brown, NYG (vs. DAL); Danny Amendola, NE (vs. DEN)

    Dud of the Week

    Robert Griffin III, WAS, QB — RG3 has become RG3 again over the past couple of weeks, but things will get hairy this weekend against a still-stout San Francisco defense. Aside from that, RG3 could very well be without two of his top pass-catching targets in tight end Jordan Reed and wideout Leonard Hankerson.

    Honorable mention: Philip Rivers, SD (at KC); Ray Rice, BAL (vs. NYJ); Antonio Brown, PIT (at CLE); Broncos DEF (at NE)
