The Weekly Thermometer- 12-11-07

This is a look at the fantasy temperature of who is hot, cold, and lukewarm. We will examine a few players in each temperature range each week.

The Counselor is IN:

Who is Hot?
QB Tom Brady is blazing hot. He continues to be on pace to break the single season touchdown record. He was 32 of 46 for 399 yards. He added another 4 touchdowns.

TE Jason Witten is red hot. He had 15 receptions for 138 yards. He did have a costly fumble but made up for it at the end of the game. He continues to have a great year for the Cowboys. Many pre-season rankings did not have him as a top 5 TE. He has proved them wrong while being a huge asset to the Cowboys.

RB Selvin Young is smoking hot. He had 17 carries for 156 yards. He is another stud Denver Runningback.

Who is Lukewarm?
Dallas Defense was very lukewarm this last week. They gave up 248 yards through the air and 152 yards on the ground with 3 touchdowns. They bent but did not break at the end of the game to keep them off the Cold list. The Defense will need to step up for the Cowboys to live up to Superbowl expectations.

QB Philip Rivers was lukewarm. He went 21 of 40 for 228 yards. He had 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.

WR Steve Smith was lukewarm. He had 6 receptions for 44 yards. The injuries to Quarterback have caused Smith to have a down year after being drafted as a top 5 fantasy Wide Receiver.

Who is Cold?
QB Vince Young is cold as ice. He went 13 of 21 for 121 yards. He also had 2 rushing attempts for 2 yards.

DeAngelo Williams is quite chilly. He had 3 carries for 7 yards. Williams was trendy fantasy pick that has not panned out.

RB Laurence Maroney is frosty. He rushed 8 times for 18 yards on Sunday. The Patriots continue to win without much of a running game. Will this cause them problems in January?
