Pac-12 Fantasy Football Week 7 Recap

Taylor Kelly and Cody Vaz put together monster games through the air while Marqise Lee had his worst performance of the season

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Star of the Week

Taylor Kelly QB Arizona State

Kelly has been an incredibly pleasant surprise for the Sun Devils and Pacific Takes Fantasy Pac-12 Football League team Sark Week, but he officially broke out last week against Colorado with his biggest game yet. Kelly was practically flawless as he passed for more than 300 yards with a staggering 5 touchdowns and even ran for 67 yards on top of that.

Surprise of the Week

Cody Vaz QB Oregon State

Vaz hadn't seen any action since he got a little bit of time in 2010 but looked far from rusty against BYU and made it look like the Beavers offense won't even flinch despite losing starter Sean Mannion. Vaz became a fantasy stalwart overnight with 332 yards and 3 touchdowns against the Cougars and was wisely scooped up by team Bring the Buff in the Pacific Takes Fantasy Pac-12 Football League.

Disappointment of the Week

Marqise Lee WR USC

Lee has been the best and most consistent of the conference's elite receivers, but had his first off week against Washington and Desmond Trufant as he grabbed just 2 catches for 32 yards and no touchdowns.

Top 10 Point Scorers

1. Brett Hundley QB UCLA 191 points

2. Matt Scott QB Arizona 181 points

3. Taylor Kelly QB Arizona State 157 points

4. Ka'Deem Carey RB Arizona 148 points

5. Marcus Mariota QB Oregon 148 points

6. Matt Barkley QB USC 138 points

7. Kenjon Barner RB Oregon 138 points

8. Johnathan Franklin RB UCLA 131 points

9. Zach Maynard QB Cal 128 points

10. Marqise Lee WR USC 111 points

Start him this week

Matt Barkley QB USC

Barkley has had a disappointing season thus far, but has a great chance to break out with a huge game as he faces the Colorado secondary that gave up 5 touchdowns to Taylor Kelly last week. Expect Barkley to find Robert Woods and Marqise Lee at will.

Sit him this week

Taylor Kelly QB Arizona State

For the second straight week, the star is also the guy that you should sit the week after his monster game (Josh Nunes was in this position last week). Kelly put up huge numbers against Colorado last week, but faces an Oregon defense this week that has already made Matt Scott and Keith Price have nightmare games.
