Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30477765 Stud – Roddy White vs JAX Stud+%26ndash%3B+Roddy+White+vs+JAX Fantasy Football

Roddy White was having a bad season. Dropped passes, unimpressive game logs and few trips to the end zone were a cause for concern, but he’s righted the ship the last month. He finished with 10 receptions (14 targets) for 135 yards and two touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night. He now sits at 1,100 receiving yards and eight touchdowns (five in last four games). Yeah, he was having a bad season. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30473942 Stud – Tony Romo vs TB Stud+%26ndash%3B+Tony+Romo+vs+TB Fantasy Football

With all the strange events that transpired on Sunday (heck, Chad Ochocinco scored a touchdown!), we don’t want to forget those fantasy studs from days gone by including the Thursday and Saturday night affairs. To nobody’s surprise, Romo shredded the Buccaneers to the tune of 249 passing yards and three touchdowns plus a rushing score from a yard out. What was shocking, and a pleasant surprise to many owners, was how he spread the wealth to his top four receivers. Laurent Robinson, Miles Austin and Dez Bryant all scored, while Jason Witten led the team with 77 receiving yards. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30477756 Dud – LeGarrette Blount vs DAL Dud+%26ndash%3B+LeGarrette+Blount+vs+DAL Fantasy Football

The ugly pattern continued. Tampa Bay attempted to run the ball, fell behind 28-0 and was forced to abandon the run and any chance for Blount’s fantasy owners to cash in one more time. The 21 yards make you want to throw up in your Fruit Loops, I get that. However, the good news for owners who survived and advanced is that Blount faces Carolina and its poor rush defense in Week 16. As hesitant as you may be, you must start Blount versus the Panthers. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30477764 Stud – Lance Moore vs MIN Stud+%26ndash%3B+Lance+Moore+vs+MIN Fantasy Football

Lance Moore posted on Twitter late Saturday night that he was checking YouTube.com for some touchdown dance ideas then calling it a night. His homework paid off. The Saints’ slot machine finished with five receptions (six targets) for 91 yards and two touchdowns. It’s his second two-touchdown game of the season (NYG) and he now has eight scores on his 2011 resume. – Ryan Fowler

Bruce Kluckhohn - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/12/18/121811-NFL-fantasy-gallery-5_20111218180441862_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/12/18/121811-NFL-fantasy-gallery-5_20111218180441862_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30477746 Dud – Marion Barber vs SEA Dud+%26ndash%3B+Marion+Barber+vs+SEA Fantasy Football

Seattle’s defense continues to impress. Barber, who was looking to exorcise the demons of Week 14, finished with 11 carries for 33 yards with no touchdowns. Kahlil Bell was far more productive with over 100 total yards and a touchdown. – Ryan Fowler

Mike Dinovo - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/12/18/121811-NFL-fantasy-gallery-9_20111218180900869_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/12/18/121811-NFL-fantasy-gallery-9_20111218180900869_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30477766 Stud – Reggie Bush vs BUF Stud+%26ndash%3B+Reggie+Bush+vs+BUF Fantasy Football

Despite playing in warm weather and domed climates for the majority of the past decade, Bush reacted well to the wintry mix in Buffalo. He finished with a career-high 203 rushing yards that included a 76-yard touchdown run late in the game. He has now rushed for over 100 yards in three consecutive games and is closing in on 1,000 rushing yards for the season. It would mark the first time in his career he’s reached that plateau. (Honorable Stud Mention: Ryan Mathews vs BAL) – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30477747 Dud – Adrian Peterson vs NO Dud+%26ndash%3B+Adrian+Peterson+vs+NO Fantasy Football

ADP said fantasy football owners were counting on him and that was part of the reason he suited up in Week 15. As much as they appreciate the thought, you think you could have told Leslie Frazier to hook you up with some red zone work. Toby Gerhart’s two scores on six touches really “annoyed” fantasy owners. ADP’s 60 rushing yards were a nice gesture, but I bet owners would have rather been forced to start Gerhart knowing he was going to receive the bulk of the work. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30480274 Stud – Drew Brees vs MIN Stud+%26ndash%3B+Drew+Brees+vs+MIN Fantasy Football

It’s sad. The top stories of the day were the Packers and Tim Tebow losing. Those two outcomes buried the carving station Drew Brees set up in Minnesota. It is true that Minnesota’s pass defense is extra Swissy this time of year, which waters down the feat a tad. But it’s still the NFL and what the New Orleans quarterback managed to accomplish in the fantasy world is astonishing. He finished 32 of 40 for 412 yards and five touchdowns with no interceptions. He’s only the sixth player in NFL history to post those hefty numbers. Fantasy owners closed in on 50 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30477761 Dud – Eli Manning vs WAS Dud+%26ndash%3B+Eli+Manning+vs+WAS Fantasy Football

Once Eli’s deep ball slipped right between the hands of a wide open Hakeem Nicks early in the Giants' game against the Redskins, you knew it was going to be one of those games. It was the kind where you wonder if the home team was even interested in competing on Sunday. Manning finished with 257 passing yards with a goose egg in the touchdown department (D.J. Ware score was called back) and three interceptions. His 4-6 fantasy points aside, the poor fantasy playoff effort wasn’t completely the quarterback’s fault. His receivers really let him down. – Ryan Fowler

Debby Wong - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/12/18/121811-NFL-fantasy-gallery-6_20111218180558865_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/12/18/121811-NFL-fantasy-gallery-6_20111218180558865_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30477771 Stud – Calvin Johnson vs OAK Stud+%26ndash%3B+Calvin+Johnson+vs+OAK Fantasy Football

A week after posting a stat line of three receptions for 29 yards against Minnesota, Johnson erupted in Oakland. On the final drive of the game he caught three passes for 75 yards that included a game-tying touchdown. He finished with a career-high 214 yards and two touchdowns. Matt Stafford (honorary stud) finished with 391 passing yards and four touchdowns. So, it’s obvious that the Lions were prepared to work Megatron into the game as much as possible (14 targets). – Ryan Fowler

Jason O. Watson - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/12/18/121811-NFL-fantasy-gallery-10_20111218193126960_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/12/18/121811-NFL-fantasy-gallery-10_20111218193126960_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Week 15 fantasy football studs and duds 30473947 Week 15 Studs and Duds Week+15+Studs+and+Duds Fantasy Football

The Green Bay Packers are perfect no more thanks, in part, to Kyle Orton. Yes, you read that correctly. The man formerly known as the quarterback with the neck beard, has now thrown for 572 yards against the Pack in two games this season. He finished one yard shy of 300 in Week 15, but helped the Chiefs control the clock. Kansas City’s time of possession was 36:11 compared to the Packers' 23:49. It’s hard for Aaron Rodgers to beat you when he doesn’t have the ball, although he did try. Mercury Morris is poppin’ bottles in Miami and should pour Orton a glass. That’s stud. – Ryan Fowler
