    Week 13 was packed with many entertaining performances by some of the league's premiere players, such as; Adrian Peterson, Michael Vick, Greg Jennings, Reggie Wayne and Aaron Rodgers.

    Peyton Manning and the Colts are beginning to play their way out of the playoff race, while teams like the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers desperately fight to keep their postseason hopes alive.

    The following players had an extraordinary Week 13, recording some big numbers for their fantasy owners, and will continue to prosper in Week 14.

    Aaron Rodgers has led the Green Bay Packers to four wins out of their last five games.  In those five games, Rodgers scored a total of 11 touchdowns while throwing zero interceptions.  You can expect his dominance to continue into Week 14 against the 16h overall ranked passing defense of the Detroit Lions, who give up an average of 222.6 YPG.

    Reggie Wayne is still listed on Indianapolis' injury report, but his knee didn't seem to be an issue last week against Dallas when he had his best game of this season so far.  Against the 23rd overall passing defense of the Tennessee Titans, Wayne should have another tremendous game for the Colts.  In a big divisional match up this Thursday, you can expect Manning and Wayne to connect on a bunch of occasions.

    After making six receptions for 122 yards and two touchdowns in Week 13, another 100-yard, multiple touchdown game is likely for Jennings, who will be going up against one of the worst passing defenses in the National Football League.  In the last three games Jennings has made a total of 18 catches for 393 yards and five touchdowns.  Jennings should get the start over any receiver you may have this week.

    Since coming back from injury in Week 9, Vick has picked up right where he left off winning four of the last five games.  Vick took a hit to the quadriceps by an opponents helmet during last Thursday's game, against the Houston Texans, but has been receiving treatment ever since and is expected to play in Week 14.  Vick will have yet another big performance against the Cowboys this Sunday, who have the 28th overall ranked passing defense allowing 254.1 YPG.

    Drew Brees has been absolutely outstanding of late, throwing for over 300 yards in five out of the last six games. He should have no problem eclipsing 300 yards passing once again, against the 19th overall ranked passing defense of the St. Louis Rams, who give up an average of 229.5 YPG.   The Rams have given up over 300 yards in two of their last four games.  Only one game behind the division-leading Atlanta Falcons, the Saints should win their sixth straight game this Sunday.
