Pac-12 Fantasy Player of the Week - Cody Kessler QB USC
Kessler blew up on the Cougars and ended the streak of this honor just going to quarterbacks who were playing Cal and Colorado. He put up 37 points in a week that was light on huge point scorers.
Surprise of the week - Shaq Thompson LB Washington
Thompson was a full-time running back for the Huskies for the second week in-a-row and made the most of it, putting up 27 points. I think most expect Thompson to be productive on offense, but being one of the most-productive running backs in the conference is a surprise.
Saddest thing of the of the week - Connor Halliday QB Washington State gets injured
Halliday was the conference's leading point scorer coming into the week, but sadly he suffered a career-ending injury. The impressive thing is that Halliday could still finish the year in the Top 10 of Pac-12 fantasy scorers while basically missing all of November.
Start him this week - Luke Falk QB Washington State
Falk likely won't be able to match Halliday's production, but he will almost assuredly put up points against a questionable Oregon State defense Saturday.
Sit him this week - D.J. Foster RB Arizona State
Foster has been hit and miss against better competition, so I don't expect much from him against a Notre Dame defense that can be very stingy at times.
