Sam Bradford (STL QB)- He’s been cut a lot this season. He’s starting to get back to being the same guy that carried a lot of fantasy teams last year. He didn’t throw any TD’s this week but he did get 321 yards. He has a healthy legit big time #1 WR now which will help him with the lack of yards and TD’s that he had in weeks 1-5.
John Beck (WAS QB)- He very well could be the new starter after 4 Rex Grossman interceptions in week 6. Beck didn’t look too bad going 8/15 with 177 yards and a rushing TD. He has a weak schedule coming up so that could pad the stats.
Christian Ponder (MIN QB)- It’s about time Donovan McNabb is benched. That makes Ponder the new starter. Like any other rookie use them with caution. Ponder is in no way a starter. He is only a good pickup if all the starting QB’s in your league are taken.
Danario Alexander (STL WR)- He’s that legit big time #1 WR that Bradford has. In my preview articles before the season I said to draft Alexander. It took him awhile to get healthy and going but he’s finally arrived. Danario is a very big WR at 6 foot 5. He led his team with 91 yards in week 6 against a tough Green Bay defense. I expect him to be good enough to start as a #3 WR for the rest of the season. I expect either near 100 yards and/or a TD each week.
Michael Crabtree (SF WR)- He should be 100% owned at this point. He was the feature of my article last week and in week 6 he had a team high 9 catches for 77 yards. This guy is a legit #1 WR when healthy. His issue will be having a bad QB throwing to him, but he should begin to put up yards like this every single week. Hopefully he starts scoring TD’s soon too.
Jacoby Jones (HOU WR)- He is becoming Schaub’s favorite target not named Owen Daniels. Jones scored his first TD of the season this week and is a decent start while Andre Johnson is out.
Greg Little (CLE WR)- Back to back 6 reception games for decent yardage. He is being thrown to more than any Browns WR.
Torrey Smith (BAL WR)- The Ravens really like him. It’s unpredictable exactly when he will produce, but he’s worth having in the event that he gains consistency down the stretch when you need him.
Jerome Simpson (CIN WR)- Caution…he’s on bye in week 7. Simpson had 6 catches for 101 yards this week. He has a lot of talent and could be a consistent starter with more experience. For now he’s good depth to have on your bench.
DeMarco Murray (DAL RB)- Felix Jones is injured…again. Murray should be the starter next week unless Dallas makes a trade (which could happen.) For now go ahead and stash Murray. A starting RB is a starter.
Earnest Graham (TB RB)- He started this week for the injured LaGarrette Blount and wow. 109 rushing yards and 22 receiving yards. It’s unknown if Blount will be back next week or not, but if he isn’t then Graham is worth picking up and starting.
Montario Hardesty (CLE RB)- I’m not sure what is going on with their running game but Hardesty got more carries than Hillis this week. Pick him up incase this becomes the norm.
Bernard Scott (CIN RB)- I’ll just keep repeating the same thing every week. Eventually Cedric Benson will be suspended. When that happens Scott is the starter for 4 weeks. Might as well stash him now.
Delone Carter (IND RB)- Joseph Addai is always injured. He was injured in week 6 and Carter got the start. Although the numbers weren’t very impressive it was a great learning experience for Carter. He is a power runner who needs a lot of carries per game so the 12 he received probably weren’t enough. If Addai misses anymore time then Carter should be owned.
Stevan Ridley (NE RB)- He started this week. It didn’t go too well though. Stash him on your bench until he breaks out.
Aaron Hernandez (NE TE)- Because Gronkowski scored so many TD’s early and then Hernandez was injured, he is a forgotten man. Hernandez consistently puts up high yardage and sometimes scores TD”s just like everyone else in the Patriots offense. Start him every week.
Brandon Pettigrew (DET TE)– At this point I would feel confident starting him every single week. He’s now put up quality numbers for 4 straight weeks.
Fred Davis (WAS TE)- He should be owned and started most weeks. He is staying behind at camp, working hard, and producing. He’s big, he’s strong, and he’s fast. 95 more yards for him this past week. He is the solution to your TE problem. Plus Chris Cooley needs finger surgery so he will be out a few weeks.
Dallas Clark (IND TE)- Clark has been one of the most cut fantasy players this season so far. If your in need of a TE and he’s available then he’s worth a shot. He bounced back from a slow start in week 6 with 53 yds and a TD. Clark is still one of the most talented TE’s in the league and is more trustworthy than most waiver adds.
Jake Ballard (NYG TE)- Following up on back to back TD weeks, Ballard put up 81 yards in week 6. He’s starting to be consistent, Eli Manning likes him, and the Giants offense is starting to become high powered.
San Francisco Defense- If they are still available then grab them. They are now good enough to be your one and only starting defense each and every week. They held the powerful Lions to only 19 points. They play in a weak division and have an easy schedule.
