Week eight Pac-12 fantasy recap: Cody Kessler Pac-12 Fantasy Player of the Week

Cody Kessler bombed Colorado for seven touchdowns.

Stephen Dunn

Pac-12 Fantasy Player of the Week - Cody Kessler QB USC

Kessler became the latest quarterback to join the seven touchdown club, burning Colorado. He put up 43 points against the Buffs.

Surprise of the week - Jordan Villamin WR Oregon State

The Beavers have been searching for a big play receiver on offense and Villamin showed that ability, exploding for a bunch of points against Utah. The only problem is, I don't think anyone had him on their team.

Disappointment of the week - Anyone on Washington

The Huskies already had an offense that was terrible from a fantasy perspective going into their game against Oregon, but they were spectacularly bad in Eugene. I don't think they had one player who ended up scoring more than 10 points.

Start him this week - Nate Phillips WR Arizona

Phillips has been greatly overshadowed by Cayleb Jones and a healthy Austin Hill this season, but going against a bad Washington State pass defense, I am sure Anu Solomon is going to really spread the ball around and Phillips should see a lot of those balls.

Sit him this week - Justin Davis RB USC

Davis is usually one of the best back-up running backs in the league, getting carries with Javorius Allen, but going against Utah's stout defense, I don't see him getting many points this week.
