Midseason award tour

Aaron?Rodgers is on pace to score 52 total touchdowns this season.

Break out the stilettos; it’s time to hit the red carpet. With each team having played at least eight games, we can take a gander back at what we’ve seen.

Everyone knows that Fred Jackson is fantasy’s MVP, Chris Johnson is the biggest bust and Cam Newton is the rookie of the year. But what about these categories:

Injury of the year

It’s unlikely that owners were able to overcome Jamaal Charles’s season-ending Week 2 ACL tear. He had no clear handcuff and getting running back help during the season is brutal. While Kenny Britt’s knee injury was painful, there are enough wideouts out there to overcome it.       
          
Best performance
In Week 4 against the Broncos, Aaron Rodgers piled up more fantasy points than Vernon Davis or Mario Manningham have all season. He threw for 408 yards, ran for 36 more and scored six total touchdowns.      

Top waiver add
Victor Cruz wasn’t drafted coming out of UMass. He also wasn’t drafted in any fantasy leagues. But he has bucked the odds, establishing himself as a highly-productive No. 3 receiver and outscoring guys like Larry Fitzgerald and Brandon Marshall along the way.

Top NFL pickups

Roy Helu
RB, Redskins
Locked in as the every-down back in an offense that loves to check down to its backs. Major PPR?upside.   

Laurent Robinson
WR,?Cowboys
With Miles Austin out 2-4 weeks, Robinson is going to be a target hog. In this offense, he’ll have WR2 value.

Jacoby Ford
WR, Raiders
Ford has replaced Darrius Heyward-Bey as a starter. Has elite speed to catch up to bombs from?Carson Palmer.
