QB Matt Hasselbeck (Titans)
We keep waiting for Hasselbeck’s wheels to fall off like he’s done the last three seasons in Seattle, but all he does is get better and look younger each week. He’s got eight TD’s in four games and the offense has been driven by him, not his All-Pro RB Chris Johnson. There are so many good options at QB this season, but he’s worth grabbing and having as a backup for bye weeks or injury.
RB Ryan Torain (Redskins)
Although Washington has a bye this week, Torain is a great pick-up just because of his break-out performance last week where he rushed for 135 yards and a TD. Many fantasy owners are reluctant to favor Torain just because he’s part of a three-back committee with Tim Hightower and Roy Helu, but Torain has always been a Shanahan favorite considering he drafted him in Denver and brought him to Washington. Go with Shanhan’s ego in this one, which will always lean to the guy he drafted.
TE Owen Daniels (Texans)
This may be the week to insert Daniels into the starting lineup, even in a league that doesn’t have TE’s required to play. With Andre Johnson’s status up in the air and no other Texans WR stepping up, the bulk of the Texans passing game will go through Daniels.
(Each week GT columnist Micah Roberts will offer a few players that may not have been considered for play that could do well for the upcoming NFL games).
