Pac-12 fantasy football recap week seven: Marcus Mariota player of the week second week in-a-row

Mariota outduels Oregon State's Sean Mannion again.

Pac-12 Fantasy Player of the Week - Marcus Mariota QB Oregon

Mariota followed up his epic performance against Colorado with a very good one against Washington where he scored 44 points on his nearly 500 total yards and four touchdowns. It looks like Mariota could be the top point scorer each and every week the rest of the season with the way he is playing.

Disappointment of the Week - Connor Halliday QB Washington State

Halliday was facing a Beaver defense that had given up a lot of yards and points going into the game, and he started strongly, but fizzled out when he threw three interceptions which outweighed his 248 yards and one touchdown.

Surprise of the Week - Garic Wharton WR Arizona

Wharton was so under-the-radar before this week that he wasn't owned in the Pacific Takes Pac-12 fantasy league but he blew up with two huge touchdown catches against USC and 19 points.

Start Him This Week - Paul Richardson WR Colorado

Richardson got off to a red-hot start but has cooled a bit in Pac-12 play. The good news for him though is that the Buffs get a mid-season FCS opponent in Charleston Southern this week so he should put up good numbers, even with Colorado's struggles at quarterback.

Sit Him This Week - Tre Madden RB USC

Madden has been a big surprise this year, but is starting to cool off and will see less carries with the return of Silas Redd. Also, the Trojans face off with a good Notre Dame run defense that shut down Arizona State a couple of weeks ago.

Injury Watch - De'Anthony Thomas RB Oregon

Thomas suited up, but didn't play against Washington as he still recovers from a sprained ankle suffered a couple of weeks ago. It seems like Thomas should be ready to go Saturday against Washington State, but you would have to wonder, with how bad the Cougars looked against Stanford and Oregon State, that the Ducks might want to just rest him another week before their showdown with UCLA.
