Davone Bess, WR, Dolphins
This is an article from the Dec. 14, 2009 issue
Last week offensive coordinator Dan Henning used the overachieving Bess as a Wes Welker--type possession receiver to help defeat the Patriots. The scheme worked so well for Bess (10 catches, 117 yards and a TD) and for Miami that you're sure to see more of it.
Kenny Britt, WR, Titans
The rookie from Rutgers has emerged as Vince Young's most reliable receiver. In his four starts Britt has caught 16 passes for 271 yards, and he has a touchdown in each of his last three games. He's a worthy start this week at home against the lowly Rams.
Evan Moore, TE, Browns
One day removed from the practice squad, the ex-Packer made his NFL debut on Sunday, catching six balls for 80 yards—both 2009 highs for Cleveland tight ends. With QB Brady Quinn needing as many weapons as he can find, Moore will continue to be targeted.
Garrett Hartley, K, Saints
He began the season with a four-game suspension and then sat behind John Carney. But Hartley reclaimed the starting spot on Sunday and scored 15 points in a win against Washington. As the kicker on the league's top offense, he should be snapped up immediately.
Heath Miller, TE, Steelers
Pittsburgh's third-leading receiver has been held to a single catch in each of the last two games, gaining a total of 29 yards. Since scoring four times in a three-week October span, he's found the end zone just once. He's simply too inconsistent to start.
Chris Jennings, RB, Browns
The rookie out of Arizona was a hot pickup after being named Cleveland's starter two weeks ago. But on Sunday he had a mere 30 total yards while backup Jerome Harrison gained 97 and scored twice. Back to the waiver wire Jennings goes.

The trio of Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark has given their fantasy owners plenty to celebrate this season, but expect the party to quiet down in the coming weeks. Though four games remain on the schedule, unbeaten Indianapolis has already clinched its division and has a three-game lead in the race for AFC home field advantage. The veteran power trio will be given the early hook in games from here on out. One potentially available substitute for the tough-to-replace Manning (below) is San Francisco's Alex Smith. The 49ers QB has been putting up strong numbers, with seven TDs and just one interception in his last three games.
