Jordan Howard continued his late-season surge with the Bears as Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott wrap up their strong rookie campaigns.
Tyreek Hill, WR, Chiefs (NA last week)
Hill has been coming on strong the past four weeks and has quietly put together a solid rookie campaign. The fifth-round pick caught five passes for 53 yards against the Falcons, his fourth straight game of at least four catches.
Receiving stats: 50 catches, 481 yards, 5 TDs

Leonard Floyd, LB, Bears (NA last week)
Floyd didn’t miss a beat after sitting out Week 12 with a concussion. He picked up two more sacks to push his rookie-leading total to seven. He's notched 6 ½ of those in his past five games.
Defensive stats: 29 tackles, 7 sacks, 0 INTs
Robert Kelley, RB, Redskins (NA last week)
After struggling to find much success against the Cowboys, Kelley had a bounce-back performance against the Cardinals. He rushed for 63 yards on just 14 carries, rebounding from his 37-yard outing vs. Dallas.
Rushing stats: 112 attempts, 524 yards, 4 TDs
Deion Jones, LB, Falcons (7th last week)
Jones continued to keep pace with his rookie teammate (Keanu Neal) among rookie tacklers. Jones put up seven tackles against the Chiefs but has yet to record his first-career sack.
Defensive stats: 76 tackles, 0 sacks, 2 INTs
Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles (6th last week)
Well, Wentz can’t complain about not getting enough attempts in Sunday’s loss to the Bengals. He threw a career-high 60 passes and added a career-high three interceptions in the process.
Thomas and the Saints didn’t enjoy any carryover from their eye-opening offensive performance against the Rams. He was held to four catches and 42 yards against the Lions, but he still leads all rookies in receptions and receiving yards.
Receiving stats: 69 catches, 831 yards, 7 TDs

Keanu Neal, S, Falcons (5th last week)
Neal has yet to hit a rookie wall, racking up seven tackles to add to his rookie lead in the category. There’s no reason not to expect Neal to continue his fearless play Sunday against the Rams.
Defensive stats: 79 tackles, 0 INTs

Jordan Howard, RB, Bears (4th last week)
Howard was the Bears offense against the 49ers, scoring a career-high three touchdowns and topping 100 rushing yards for the fifth time this season. Chicago will probably continue to feed Jordan, who had a career-high 32 carries in the win.
Rushing stats: 181 carries, 883 yards, 5 TDs

Dak Prescott, QB, Cowboys (2nd last week)
Prescott found little individual success against the Vikings, throwing for a season-low 139 yards. But Prescott, who hasn’t thrown an interception in five games, did enough against a tough defense for the Cowboys to secure their 11th straight win.
As great as Elliott has been this season, he found little room to operate against the Vikings. He was held to fewer than 90 rushing yards for the first time since Week 2. But he’s still leading the league in rushing yards and is second in rushing touchdowns, putting him in the running for the MVP.
