Stud: Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR

Amari Cooper continues to be the No. 1 target but when defenses focus on him the way Miami did on Sunday, Donovan Peoples-Jones has made them pay. Once again, he had a strong outing, starting with a 38-yarder on the first play of the game.

Heading into this one, DPJ had been on quite a run as he topped 70-yards in four of the past five games with at least 50 in each of those.

He continued that trend as he had five receptions for 99 yards. He was the top receiver in this game and has made some huge strides as a player.

Dud: Kareem Hunt, RB

Back in Week 1, Kareem Hunt scored two touchdowns and it looked as though he was ready for another huge season as the No. 2 back. Since then, he’s had just two more touchdowns total and was a non-factor in their losses to the Patriots and Ravens.

This past weekend, however, might have been his worst outing. Hunt was stopped for a loss several times, including once on third-and-two which led to a turnover on downs.

He finished with nine yards on six carries. Cleveland needed some kind of spark and Hunt has often provided that. He was unable to do so in Week 10, when it could have really helped.
