Marqise Lee has a game for the ages while Washington State shuts down Stepfan Taylor and Bryan Bennett racks up points in mop up duty.
Star of the Week
Marqise Lee WR USC
Lee's stat line against Arizona is one of the most insane in the history of the Pac-12. With 16 receptions for 345 yards and 2 touchdowns, Lee put up numbers that would have been a great day for quarterbacks. Lee's performance had to be greatly appreciated by the aptly titled team, Lee Me Alone in the Pacific Takes Pac-12 Fantasy Football League.
Surprise of the Week
Bryan Bennett QB Oregon
Bennett made the most of his extended time against Colorado as he put up numbers that would have been great for a running back with 73 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground along with 56 yards passing. Bennett still remains unclaimed in the Pacific Takes Pac-12 Fantasy Football League but he is probably the most valuable back-up quarterback in the conference.
Disappointment of the Week
Stepfan Taylor RB Stanford
Washington State has one of the worst run defenses in the conferences but was shockingly able to limit Taylor to just 58 yards on 21 carries and no touchdowns.

Start him this week
Marcus Mariota QB Oregon
The Trojan defense was shredded by Arizona quarterback Matt Scott and the Wildcats hurry-up offense so Mariota should have an even bigger game with the Ducks offense basically being a more dynamic and talented version of Arizona's.
Sit him this week
Matt Barkley QB USC
This might be a bold prediction, but the Ducks defense has simply destroyed every quarterback they have faced this year no matter how good they had been playing and no matter whether it is at home or on the road. Barkley hasn't been playing up to his expectations all year and has been generous with interceptions against the better teams that he has faced.
