1. Ryan Williams, Cardinals - I was shocked to see Williams available in two of my fantasy leagues this week and you might be surprised when you check as well. After a terribly slow start to the season, Williams put together an 83 yard game after coming in for the injured Beanie Wells (shocking, right?) Next up for Williams is Miami who won't be an easy matchup, but Williams is a talented runner.
2. Andy Dalton, Bengals - I realize that Dalton will be a backup already in many leagues, but in 10 team leagues, he might still be out there and if he is, grab him. Dalton, like Matthew Stafford last year, is going to benefit from having one of the top WRs in league on his team (A.J. Green) and you're going to start benefiting by starting him.
3. JacQuizz Rodgers, Falcons - Quizz hasn't been able to get it going on the ground yet (and with the Falcons offensive line, it might be tough), but he's getting more and more snaps and touches each game. Quizz had 10 carries and 5 catches last week and scored a TD on a reception. He's well worth adding as a RB4.
4. Tashard Choice, Bills - This recommendation could skyrocket or bottom out by Friday based on what we find out regarding C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. I can already tell you that I'll be taking my chances with Choice if only for a week. Fred Jackson won't be healthy enough to lean on and Choice has proven he can carry a heavy load so look for Choice to be the guy against the Patriots for at least this week.
5. Daniel Thomas, Dolphins - Thomas was solid against the Jets with 69 yards rushing, but what I loved is that he ended up with 19 carries in a game where he had to replace Reggie Bush. Whether Bush is back by Sunday or not, it won't stop Thomas from getting plenty of carries for at least the next two games.
6. Donnie Avery, Colts - Avery has been one of Andrew Luck's favorite targets this year even though his total catches don't reflect that. Avery had a monster game in week 2, but didn't do much in the other two games, however, with Austin Collie done for the season, Avery will be the starter and will see his stats continue to grow as Andrew Luck grows into the position.
7. Bilal Powell, Jets - The fact of the matter is that Powell simply has more juice than Shonn Greene, plain and simple. Greene is too slow to turn the corner in the running game while Powell gives the Jets more speed to get that very corner that Greene can't. Powell had two catches last week as well and even though the Jets are likely going to a committee, Powell has a chance to take over more and more snaps.
8. Kyle Rudolph, Vikings - Christian Ponder is finding his big man in the redzone and that is huge for tight ends. Rudolph hasn't posted a big yardage game this year, but he does have 13 catches so far and he's added 3 TDs. You could do worse than Rudolph as waiver wire help this week.
9. Ramses Barden, Giants - The conventional school of thought will be that Barden's value was a one week only proposition and that with Nicks coming back, Barden's value will plummet, but I disagree. If anything, Barden cemented a level of trust with his QB last week against the Panthers and will be a factor moving forward in 3-WR sets.
10. Kevin Kolb, Cardinals - In deeper leagues, you'll find the pickings pretty slim at QB so Kolb might make sense for this week. Kolb isn't lighting it up with yardage, but he has thrown at least one TD in all three games and he had 2 TDs in his last outing. Miami's secondary can be thrown on to be sure.
