Dallas offense boosts Kitna's value
Did a top quarterback just come onto the market?

Before this season,
The Bills' defense gives up a ton of points; the offense generally ends up throwing a lot. Fitzpatrick's receivers have been singing his praises. And Fitzpatrick is available in most fantasy leagues. The touchdown numbers will probably come down -- his percentage of passes for touchdowns is 8.6, a very high rate -- and he's been inconsistent in the past, but those in need of a quarterback can get a guy who could put up very solid numbers for nothing more than a waiver pickup.
By this point in the season pretty much everyone is taken. Fight for scraps on the waiver wire. One option in Buccaneers running back
If Blount ends up learning the protection better and getting more playing time, he could be a decent starter at running back by late-season. If you have the roster spot, definitely pick him up now.

If the Seahawks continue to struggle to get into the end zone -- and best guess is they will -- then
