Pac-12 Fantasy Player of the Week - Bishop Sankey RB Washington
After having one of the worst games of his career against Arizona State the week before, Sankey bounced back in a big way with an epic performance against Cal where he seemed to rip off big runs every time he touched the ball. He finished with 37 total points on the best night of his career.
Disappointment of the week - Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State
The Stanford defense was finally able to slow Cooks down, as he failed to break 100 yards and had just one touchdown. Though that would be a good performance for most receivers, it's about less than half of what he has usually produced this year.
Surprise of the week - Jaydon Mickens WR Washington
Mickens has played well this season, but truly exploded against Cal's soft pass defense as he hauled in two long touchdown bombs and finished with 180 yards receiving totaling up 30 points in all.
Start him this week - Jerry Neuheisel QB UCLA
A third of the conference has a bye this week, so starting quarterbacks are going to be hard to find. The good news is that UCLA should beat Colorado by enough to get their backup, Neuheisel in to score some points.
Sit him this week - Terron Ward RB Oregon State
The Beavers have really, really struggled to run the ball at all this season, and though Ward is putting up some numbers, he will likely struggle this week against a USC defense that is playing as good as any in the country right now, especially against the run.
Injury watch - Kasen Williams WR Washington
There are still big time guys banged up all around the conference, but Williams is the one who looks like his season is for sure done after breaking and dislocating a bone in his foot. Williams wasn't putting up big numbers in 2013, but it looks like one of the most talented receivers in the conference is done for the year.
