NFL Stars of the Week – Week 4Posted: October 4, 2011
Some repeat performers this week but an overall lack of impressive performances. Nobody wowed me except forAaron Rodgers.
Offensive Stars of the Week:
Star No. 1 - Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers: Rodgers was incredibly good this weekend. He had 408 passing yards, 4TDs, 1INT, and 2 Rushing TDs.
Star No. 2 - Chris Wells, RB, Arizona Cardinals: Chris Wells looked like the man draft experts thought he would be. He had 27 carries for 138 yards and 3TDs. Thankfully, I benched him on my fantasy team in favor of Tim Hightower.
Star No. 3 - Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers: Newton continued to impress. He had 374 passing yards, 1TD and 2 rushing TDs. Great performance.
Defensive Stars of the Week:
Dud of the Week: Mark Sanchez, QB, New York Jets: Sanchize was absolutely awful vs. the Ravens. He was an impressive 11 for 35 for 119 yards and had 1INT and 4 fumbles. Impressive stuff from the alleged “top 15 QB”.
