    Another week has come and gone in the NFL and another week of big performances by the league's best.

    Adrian Peterson rumbled for three touchdowns despite an ankle injury, while Tom Brady and the Patriots crushed the Jets 45-3 on Monday night.

    The league has been full of surprises this season and the players that are expected to dominate continue to play well week in and week out.

    Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers had another big day in Week 13 when he and the Packers defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 34-16. Rodgers has been a fantasy stud, as expected, and he should not be removed from your lineup.

    Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is always reliable and he proved that once again in Week 13.

    Peterson rushed for 107 yards on just 16 carries despite an ankle injury. Peterson also reached the end zone three times.

    AP is a number one fantasy back so keep him in your lineup for Week 14.

    Week 13 Stats: 22-33, 302 yards, two touchdowns, one interception, 48 rushing yards, one touchdown

    Eagles quarterback Michael Vick continued to light it up in Week 13 when he had another MVP-type performance.

Reggie Wayne, WR, Indianapolis Colts

    Week 13 Stats: 14 receptions, 200 yards, one touchdown

    Despite the losing effort, Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne had a monster game against the Cowboys.

    Wayne snagged in 14 passes, just one shy of his season-high of 15 in Week 4.

    The Colts are on a three-game losing streak and if Wayne cools down, they may be in more trouble than they are already in.

    Week 14 Matchup: at Tennessee Titans

Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots

    Brady is red hot and so are the Patriots. Keep Brady in your lineup for Week 14.
