In Week 10 of the NFL season three players jumped off the page for me, all looking like guys who could impact games for the rest of the season. Here is a look at three guys you must add if you have the roster space, because each of them could be big-time fantasy points machines for the rest of the season.


1. Vincent Brown

The rookie wide receiver blew up for the San Diego Chargers on Thursday night, hauling in five passes for 97 yards and a touchdown. He also had another touchdown called back after review because the man covering him (Lito Sheppard) had his hand on the ball and was out of bounds. 

Brown was subbing for an injured Malcom Floyd on the night, but the third-round pick out of San Diego State certainly made a statement with his play. All season Philip Rivers and the Chargers' coaching staff have raved about his ability, so a breakout was expected at some point. 

With San Diego struggling to find answers on offense, the team may look to Brown more and more. I think he's a great pickup if you need more production out of your receivers at this point.

2. Laurent Robinson

For the second straight week Robinson had a really nice fantasy output and is beginning to look like a solid fantasy option. He caught just three passes, but turned them into 73 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' 44-7 destruction of the Buffalo Bills.

While he wasn't the most targeted guy for the Cowboys and may not one of quarterback Tony Romo's favorite receiver, Robinson has shown an uncanny knack for making the most out of his opportunities. 

He is a must-get in fantasy leagues, even if you're just going to stash him on your bench and not worry about him. At this point he's looking like a solid contributor.

3. Ed Dickson

Dickson came out of absolutely nowhere to have a big fantasy game on Sunday afternoon. The pass-catching tight end hauled in 10 passes for 79 yards and two touchdowns during Baltimore's 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Dickson is a second-year tight end out of Oregon who certainly has the ability to be a solid pass-catcher. While his 10-catch performance is a little out there for me, clearly Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is comfortable throwing thing Dickson's direction.

A tight end that gets you consistent points might be the hardest thing to find in all of fantasy football, therefore Dickson is worth an add. He could end up being a big factor down the stretch.
