News: Eastern Michigan quarterback Alex Gillett threw for 234 yards and four touchdowns against Buffalo.
Analysis: He also led the Eagles with 89 yards rushing. Don't look now, but that's two straight games with four scoring tosses. The normal run first and second quarterback is starting to look like a true dual threat. It's a little late for 2011, but with a solid final two games, Gillett will move up our rankings for next year.

Analysis: A breakout game for Gillett who has only had four games with 100+ yards passing, and only had five touchdowns via air this year. It's unlikely to ever happen given a lack of surrounding talent, but if Gillett could ever show some consistent passing ability, he'd be a heck of fantasy commodity.

Don't run to your waiver wire just yet, as we'd like to see some consistency here. And the Eagles get a mean Toledo defense next week.

News: Gillett was 4-of-9 for 31 yards, one touchdown and interception as a passer but ran for 126 yards and a touchdown against Army Saturday.
