Doug Martin for president.
Martin would probably have plenty of voter's for fantasy football's most valuable player, or at least breakout performer of the year.
The rookie running back has been sensational in consecutive weeks, but that doesn't even begin to describe what kind of day Martin has Sunday in Oakland.
His 51 points in standard scoring league's was the fifth best outburst by any player in history behind Shaun Alexander (52, 2002), Aaron Rodgers (53, 2011), Clinton Portis (54, 2003) and Michael Vick (57, 2010).
Martin's value as a pass-catcher in point-per-reception leagues has been huge, too, making him a top-end running back going forward.
I think it is safe to say Martin won't be on anymore benches as he was in 19.2-percent of ESPN leagues last Sunday. Be afraid of Martin if you are going against him.
While owners of Martin celebrated, so did owners of the Chicago Bears defense, or any Chicago Bears player for that matter.
The Bears defense continues to impress, averaging over 17 points-per-game.
Not only are the Bears the best defense in fantasy football, they have scored the 17th most points of any fantasy "player" this year in points-per-reception leagues, ranking ahead of players such as Ben Roetlisberger, Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski, Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson, just to name a few.
But many of you are still in need of a couple of pieces to fit your puzzle during the final month of the fantasy football regular season.

Darren Sproles' injury in New Orleans has given the rest of the Saints' running backs more value.
Pierre Thomas figures to get the lead role, but Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory will also see a boost in playing time and touches.
The Saints need to run the ball to set up the pass for Brees, and nobody is better at finding backs with check down throws.
Darren McFadden continues to struggle with injuries in Oakland, making backup Marcel Reece a hot commodity on the waiver-wire this week.
Reece isn't only a strong runner, he showed great pass-catching skills with eight grabs and 95 yards to go with a touchdown Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Oakland tight end Brandon Myers also had a bigger role Sunday with McFadden out, and both Raiders should see more touches moving forward if McFadden misses multiple weeks with what is rumored to be an ankle sprain.
The Alex Green experiment in Green Bay hasn't panned out the way the Packers or fantasy owners had hoped.
Green Bay gave James Starks a few more carries Sunday and Starks ran with the opportunity.
Owners of Green can consider dropping him in favor of Starks if looking for more production.
One more tight end find on the waiver-wire this week is Dwayne Allen in Indianapolis as Coby Fleener continues to nurse an injured shoulder.
Allen went for 75 yards on six catches Sunday against Miami, and he should see plenty more passes his way with Andrew Luck behind center. Luck loves tight ends.
Luck's record-breaking rookie performance Sunday should encourage fantasy owners who gave him a roster spot as a backup this year.
Depending on the matchup, Luck is definitely worth consideration for a start, especially against Jacksonville this Thursday night.
Remember, Arizona, Cleveland, Green Bay and Washington are all on bye weeks.
If you need a defense to replace Green Bay or Arizona, give Miami consideration as the Dolphins look to bounce-back against Tennessee at home this week.
Tennessee did hand the Bears defense plenty of turnovers last week.
This week's survivor pool lock of the week is Pittsburgh at home Monday night against the dismal Kansas City Chiefs. No way the Chiefs get right against the steel curtain.
