    That's what we're here to help you with. We'll go over 10 players who are fantasy sleepers this week but will give you the edge you need to get the win this week.

No. 10: John Kuhn (Green Bay Packers)

    With Ryan Grant out, the Green Bay Packers have struggled to get their ground game going.

    However, with the Packers back at home facing the Detroit Lions and the worst rushing defense (148.7 ypg) in the NFL, they could finally be able to move the ball on ground.

    That being said, look for running back John Kuhn to have a big game against Detroit.

No. 9: Louis Murphy (Oakland Raiders)

    The Oakland Raiders finally have a favorable match up this week which should be good news for wide receiver Louis Murphy.

    The Houston Texans have the worst passing defense (368.7 ypg) in the NFL so Murphy should get a lot of looks from quarterback Bruce Gradkowski.

No. 8: Legedu Naanee (San Diego Chargers)

    The San Diego Chargers have been just short of disappointing through their first three games.

    On Sunday, they'll be back home to face the Arizona Cardinals who are not only giving up 25.7 points per game but they're also giving up 231.3 passing yards per game.

    Chargers' quarterback Philip Rivers set a franchise record last weekend with 455 passing yards and could match that this week.

    Look for Legedu Naanee to get a few trips to the end zone on Sunday.

No. 7: DeAngelo Williams (Carolina Panthers)

    Carolina Panthers' running back DeAngelo Williams looks to reverse a trend that has his team averaging under 100 yards per game on the ground.

    He'll be facing a New Orleans Saints' defense that's giving up 145 yards per game on the ground.

No. 6: Greg Jennings (Green Bay Packers)

    When you're playing the Detroit Lions and you have a quarterback like Aaron Rodgers you know you're going to put up some points on Sunday.

    Look for Greg Jennings get a lot of looks from Rogers against a Lions' team that's giving up 265 yards per game through the air.

No. 5: Donovan McNabb (Washington Redskins)

    A match up that Donovan McNabb has been looking forward to since being traded to the Washington Redskins.

    The quarterback will be back in Philly to face his old team and I'm sure he'll get a less than warm reception. He'll be looking to prove that they shouldn't have traded him and I think he'll do just that.

    He could be a big sleeper for this weekend.

No. 4: Sam Bradford (St. Louis Rams)

    Sam Bradford finally earned his first win last week and will look for his second win against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

    Bradford threw for 235 yards and a touchdown last week against Washington and could go for a lot more than that against a Seattle team giving up 315.7 yards per game.

No. 3: Bruce Gradkowski (Oakland Raiders)

    It didn't take long for the Oakland Raiders to name Bruce Gradkowski their starting quarterback when Jason Campbell continued to struggle.

    When you're facing the NFL's worst passing defense in the Houston Texans, you're liable to have a big day.

    If you want a quarterback to start that could put up big numbers, Gradkowski might be your guy.

No. 2: Ryan Mathews (San Diego Chargers)

    The San Diego Chargers will finally get their highly touted rookie back on the field on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

    He hasn't looked great through the game and a half he has played, but with the match up against the Arizona Cardinals, he could be a good play for your fantasy team.

No. 1: Arian Foster (Houston Texans)

    After running for over 200 yards against the Indianapolis Colts, Texans' running back Arian Foster's production has fallen off over the last two weeks, even though he had over 100 yards against the Cowboys last Sunday.

    He has a favorable match up against the Oakland Raiders who are giving up 133 rushing yards per game. He's a good start in this one.
