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
Tony Romo, QB, DAL — So, you think Romo will be rusty in his first start since Week 2? You're probably right. But, he has had a full run of practice for basically the past two weeks, and he's going up against a Dolphins defense that has massively undershot expectations this year. They've been friendly to opposing quarterbacks this year, and Romo should be no different as he'll be up for his return and what he hopes is the beginning of a long winning streak after a seven-game skid without him.
Honorable mention:Carson Palmer, ARI (vs. CIN); Matthew Stafford, DET (vs. OAK); Darren McFadden, DAL (at MIA); Danny Amendola, NE (vs. BUF).
Dud of the Week
Andy Dalton, QB, CIN — While J.J. Watt and the Texans turned the Red Rifle into the Red Rider BB gun on Monday night, the Cardinals' defense will be looking to do the same thing with a better group of players and their very real homefield advantage. The Bengals have been very good this year, and Dalton is a fringe MVP candidate at the moment, but this isn't going to be a fun game for Dalton owners.
Honorable mention:Jay Cutler, CHI (vs. DEN); Eddie Lacy, GB (at MIN); James Jones, GB (at MIN); A.J. Green, CIN (at ARI).
