Not only did he make those plays, but he made a number of other plays in the game. I think he's grown. I think he's playing with a great deal of confidence. He and (Tony Romo) have a really, really good relationship. They're seeing the field the same way. He's been good. There's no question about that."

He is quickly moving up the charts, and his hot play has moved him well up the fantasy rankings, too.
