|As we do each week, we recap the week's winners and losers from a fantasy perspective, complete with applicable game and historical data. Check back after the conclusion of the 1 and 4 p.m. ET (and, when applicable, Sunday Night Football) games for our picks of the week's best and worst.
Who cares who is throwing him http://www.authenticpacersprostore.com/reggie_miller_jersey.html the football? Hopkins continues to carry his fantasy teams with huge scores, like his 35.9 PPR http://www.officialfootballjetsstore.com/Marcus-Williams-Jersey points that was tops among all players during the 1 p.m. ET games. It was the fourth time in his career that he Authentic Luol Deng Jersey had scored at least 35,and in each of the four he had a different quarterback throwing to him: Ryan Fitzpatrick for his career-best 44.8 in 2014 Week 13, Brian Hoyer for his 36.8 in 2015 Week 6, Deshaun Watson for his 36.4 in 2017 Week 8 and Tom Savage relieved by T.J. Yates on Sunday.
Hopkins found his way onto a high percentage of ESPN playoff teams (49.5 percent, seventh-highest among wide receivers, and he was the second most-started wide receiver of Week 14 (98.8 percent of leagues). He has given his teams an excellent chance at advancing in the playoffs.
The Cowboys' fill-in running backs during Ezekiel Elliott's suspension have performed decently -- Alfred Morris and Smith have combined for 113.0 PPR fantasy points on 134 touches in five games -- but Smith's performance on Sunday was either player's best yet. The third-year player scored 33.0 PPR fantasy points, tops among running backs during the 1 p.m. ET games, obliterating his previous career high and in fact nearly doubling his season total entering the week (40.7).
Smith made one big play count, scoring 15.1 of his 33.0 on an 81-yard touchdown on a short pass with just over four minutes to play, and he capped Frank Zombo Jersey his day with a 15-yard rushing touchdown a little more than a minute later. That strong finish could -- and should -- make him a popular addition in the 73.0 percent of ESPN leagues in which he remains available, as he and the Cowboys face the Oakland Ziggy Ansah Jersey Raiders in Week 15.
Williams' 30.8 points on Sunday represented the most that he has scored in any of his 13 career games to date, as well as the second straight week he has had a big game while fellow rookie Aaron Jones has played a minimal role.
Jones played two snaps to Williams' 46 and had 8.0 PPR fantasy points on only one rushing attempt in Week 13, and Jones played seven snaps to Williams' 52 and had minus-0.2 PPR fantasy points on four rushing attempts on Sunday, per Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke.
Williams' start percentage dropped from 69.6 percent in Week 13 to 45.2 percent on Sunday, but after a game like this, doesn't it make a lot more sense for the Packers to simply stick with him as the starter next week?
