David Garrard – Jac = Hou / 28%
A matchup at home against the Texans who offer the worst passing defense in the NFL this season could result in fantasy football gold for teams this week. Fresh off the bye and with health back on his side, Garrard could easily be pushing stats in the range of 250 passing yards and 1-2 touchdowns.
Mark Sanchez – NYJ = @Cle / 61%
Ryan Fitzpatrick – Buf = Det / 54%
Josh Freeman – TB = Car / 50%
Sam Bradford – StL = @SF / 41%
Derek Anderson – Ari = Sea / 6%
Troy Smith – SF = StL / 4%
Fred Jackson – Buf = Det / 49%
Jackson has not light up the Bills offense with his stats, but if you are a fantasy football team in need of a starting RB option this week, Jackson who is available in 50% of leagues should be your pickup. 75 rushing yards and 1 touchdown is possible against the Lions this week.
Marshawn Lynch – Sea = @Ari / 53%
Mike Hart – Ind = Cin / 11%
Kevin Smith – Det = @Buf / 4%
Keiland Williams – Was = Phi / 4%
Javarris James – Ind = Cin / 2%
Deji Karim – Jac = Hou / 2%
Mike Sims-Walker – Jac = Hou / 73%
It may be a stretch to expect seeing Sims-Walker available for pickup in your league, but he is owned in just 73% of 10 team leagues, so he is clearly still out there in a decent amount of leagues entering this week. With a matchup against the worst pass defense in the NFL this week, Sims-Walker could be eyeing 100 receiving yards and 1 touchdown.
Derrick Mason – Bal = @Atl / 53%
Jabar Gaffney – Den = KC / 51%
Steve Breaston – Ari = Sea / 54%
Kevin Walter – Hou = @Jac / 43%
Nate Burleson – Det = @Buf / 10%
Blair White – Ind = Cin / 7%
Mike Thomas – Jac = Hou / 18%
Michael Jenkins – Atl = Bal / 4%
Justin Gage – Ten = @Mia / 1%
Jacob Tamme – Ind = Cin / 73%
Welcome to the world of elite fantasy football players Mr Jacob Tamme. After just two weeks as the Colts starting TE, Tamme is clearly trusted by Peyton Manning and is no doubt a vital key in the Colts offense. 5-10 receptions for 75-100 receiving yards and 1 touchdown is easily within reach for Tamme this week.
Brandon Pettigrew – Det = @Buf / 51%
Seemingly coming into his own, Pettigrew has been an excellent red zone target for the Lions this season. With a matchup against the Bills this week, whoever the starting QB for the Lions is this week should not effect Pettigrew’s stat potential in this game. And if anything, if Matthew Stafford does not play in this game, the backup QB may look at passing to Pettigrew even more than Stafford typically would.
Tony Moeaki – KC = @Den / 52%
Tony Scheffler – Det = @Buf / 6%
Rob Gronkowski – NE = @Pit / 9%
Joel Dreessen – Hou = @Jac / 2%
David Akers – Phi = @Was / 58%
Lawrence Tynes – NYG = Dal / 36%
Neil Rackers – Hou = @Jac / 39%
Matt Prater – Den = KC / 22%

Billy Cundiff – Bal = @Atl / 4%
Philadelphia Eagles = @Was / 68%
Detroit Lions = @Buf / 23%
St. Louis Rams = @SF / 13%
Arizona Cardinals = Sea / 26%
Tampa Bay Buccaneers = Car / 21%
