Pac-12 Fantasy Player of the Week - Connor Halliday QB Washington State & Marcus Mariota QB Oregon

Halliday and Mariota both put up 38 points in big passing performances. It is fitting since the two are one-two in total fantasy points for Pac-12 players this season thus far.

Surprise of the week - Dwayne Stanford WR Oregon

Stanford has been a solid receiver for the Ducks this season thus far, but he blew up against Cal for 22 points, having the best week of any Pac-12 receiver.

Disappointment of the week - Nelson Spruce WR Colorado

Spruce was the conference's top point producer that wasn't a quarterback for a while, but he is quickly slowing down as the season progresses. He put up just six points in a game against an average at best defense in UCLA in a double overtime game.

Start him this week - Storm Woods RB Oregon State

Woods and the Beavers haven't done much on the ground, but Cal's defense is horrible and he is sure to see a lot of carries and some points this week.

Sit him this week - Tony Jones RB Colorado

Jones is the best running back that the Buffs have fantasy wise, but don't expect him to do much this week going against a very good Washington defense that shut down D.J. Foster last week.
