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

Chris Johnson, RB, NYJ — What? A Jet? Wait a second ... a Jets running back? Yup. It's a crazy week, but it's a perfect storm of awesomeness for Johnson and the lowly Jets. Johnson, who was the most feared runner in the league just a few years ago as a Tennessee Titan, will return to Nashville to face a leaky Titans run defense. Revenge game and a great matchup? Sign me up.

Dud of the Week

Colin Kaepernick, QB, SF — Talk about a fall from grace, but Kaepernick might be rivaling RG3 as biggest crash and burns in recent memory, and this week is a tough one for the 49ers signal-caller as he has to go to the hornets' nest that is CenturyLink Field in Seattle and face a resurgent Seahawks defense that is beginning to resemble last year's Super Bowl-winning unit again. It's going to be ugly.

Honorable mention: Andy Dalton, CIN (at CLE); Frank Gore, SF (at SEA); Larry Fitzgerald, ARI (at STL); Mike Wallace, MIA (at NE)
