Quarterbacks
3
Matt Hasselbeck, TEN62%Start him if you need him. He's been good for around 200 yards and a score these days.
4
Mark Sanchez, NYJ60%Nothing special here, but he's a warm body that you could use in week 9 to get 15 points or so.
5
Matt Cassel, KC37%Hasn't been great recently, but has a solid match-up with the Dolphins in week 9.
6
Andy Dalton, CIN36%He's putting up double-digit fantasy points on a weekly basis...more than you can say for
7
Alex Smith, SF31%You could do worse at the position and he could fill in if you had Cam Newton or Matt Stafford as your starter.
8
Sam Bradford, STL29%Could make his glorious return from his ankle injury this week and has a new weapon in Brandon Lloyd at his disposal if he does.
9
Running Backs
10
Jackie Battle, KC57%He's the primary ball carrier for the Chiefs so grab him if you're hurting at RB.
11
Reggie Bush, MIA56%He won't always put up 100 yards and may not again this year if Daniel Thomas plays, but he could make a solid flex play in most weeks.
12
Michael Bush, OAK51%There's still a chance Darren McFadden doesn't play this week, so you'll want Bush just in case. You might even want him anyways as he should get a decent number of carries as the backup.
13
Joseph Addai, IND50%Should return from injury this week, but this could end up being a three-headed-monster (or something less scary) with Donald Brown and Delone Carter also carrying the ball.
14
Roy Helu, WAS30%Will he remain the backup/whatever he is with Tashard Choice now in town? Who knows.
15
Javon Ringer, TEN9%With Chris Johnson playing unbelievable horribly, Ringer is actually outproducing at this point. He'll probably split carries with Johnson for the rest of the year and could be a flex play if you need him.
16
Tashard Choice, WAS7%Joins the running back insanity in Washington and who knows, he could run for 200 yards and three touchdowns next week! Or...2 yards and 0 touchdowns.
17
Curtis Brinkley, SD4%Not so fast on this guy, as Brinkley was evaluated for a possible concussion following the game. Mathews left the game with a groin injury and Tolbert was sidelined with hand and hamstring injuries. I guess Brinkley is worth a gamble if you're REALLY in trouble at RB.
18
Kevin Faulk, NE3%He's not new to the league and the Patriots will never use him as a feature back. He could fill in at the flex position for you if you need him I guess.
19
Chris Ogbonnaya, CLE2%You probably have never heard of this guy, but it looks like he could be starting games for the Browns in the near future (as long as Hillis doesn't return this week!)
20
Wide Receivers
21
Antonio Brown, PIT58%Should be owned in more leagues, especially in return yardage leagues.
22
Lance Moore, NO55%Have fun predicting the games he'll get a lot of looks, but he always has the potential I guess.
23
Darrius Heyward-Bey, OAK53%He should be owned in more leagues at this point.
24
James Jones, GB52%Not always the most consistent, but makes a decent WR3 play with Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball.
25
Malcom Floyd, SD51%Had a good game while Antonio Gates was double-teamed. Don't expect big things from him on a weekly basis while Philip Rivers is playing so poorly, but he could fill in for an injury or BYE week if necessary.
26
Jabar Gaffney, WAS46%In the first game where Santana Moss was out, Gaffney had his worst game of the season. Go figure! He's still the top receiver though, for what it's worth when John Beck is throwing the ball.
27
Michael Crabtree, SF40%If you didn't pick him up last week, it appears you still have a chance. He should be a decent WR3 going forward.
28
Doug Baldwin, SEA28%Still can't forgive Baldwin for his goose egg two weeks ago, but maybe you can. He looks like one of the top options in the Seahawks passing game.
29
Early Doucet, ARZ24%He's had a few decent games in a row and makes a solid WR3 as long as he keeps it up.
30
Joshua Cribbs, CLE12%With Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty hurt, Cribbs could end up sneaking some carries to go along with his receptions. Still, don't get your expectations up too high here.
31
Jonathan Baldwin, KC5%It was his first good game of the year, but he has a nice match-up again this week with the Dolphins. I'm not guaranteeing anything though!
32
Laurent Robinson, DAL3%He's the third receiver on a pass-heavy offense, but he will be inconsistent at best and is not generally recommended.
33
Tight Ends
34
Heath Miller, PIT50%Double digit fantasy points in three of the last four games. He's an option if you have Brandon Pettigrew or someone else on a BYE.
35
Jake Ballard, NYG30%Seems he would be owned in more leagues at this point, but he's a decent option if you need help at the position.
36
Scott Chandler, BUF26%Only has value when he finds the endzone, which won't be easy to predict.
37
Brent Celek, PHI12%He's been good the past couple games, but it seems it may have just been the gameplan and he could easily revert back to primarily a blocking tight end...but then again, maybe he doesn't! :-)
