1.) Peyton Hillis, Cleveland Browns

Anytime you can grab a starting running back off the waiver wire, it is always a great addition for your team. Peyton Hillis has taken over for Jerome Harrison and has made the most of his opportunity. Hillis carried the ball 22 times for 144 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against a tough Baltimore defense. If you were not sold on Hillis, now is the time to be. Pick him up if he is still available.


2.) Dustin Keller, New York Jets

Jets Tight End Dustin Keller had a quiet Week 1 against Baltimore, but has since gone off with 2 great outings against New England and Miami. The tight end position is always unpredictable in Fantasy Football, so if that is your weak point on your team, be sure to add Dustin Keller. He has become Mark Sanchez's favorite target over the past two weeks. The 2 have hooked up for 13 catches for 213 yards and 3 touchdowns since Week 1.


3.) Brandon Lloyd, Denver Broncos

Brandon Lloyd has been a ghost the past few seasons but he has come on for The Broncos in 2010. Lloyd is coming off a monster game against The Colts, catching 6 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown. Lloyd has 14 catches for 339 yards on the season, and can be a huge addition to your Fantasy Team.


4.) Lance Moore, New Orleans Saints

Lance Moore had a big year in 2008 and Fantasy owners had high hopes for him in 2009. He got hurt last year, but he has seemed to gain the attention of owners after his Week 3 performance. Moore caught 6 passes for 149 yards and 2 touchdowns. Moore can fill in a wide receiver slot or a flex position, be sure to get your hands on him.


5.) Kyle Orton, Denver Broncos

If your starting quarterback is struggling, or you are searching for a solid guy on the bench, look no further than Kyle Orton. Orton threw for almost 500 yards in Week 3 and has seemed to find his favorite target in wide receiver Brandon Lloyd. Look for Orton to continue to play well and pick him up if he is still available.
