Week 4: Start 'Em

Though these players might normally be on your fantasy bench, they might be worth starting this week. This week's picks include Shaun Hill, Tashard Choice, Mikel Leshoure, Knowshon Moreno, and Daniel Thomas.


Been a big Ryan Williams fan from his college days and thought he was in line for big things when he was drafted by Arizona. Partially because I think he has a lot of talent and partially because I think Beanie Wells sucks and gets injured as often as most people change their underwear. Then Williams missed all of last season with an injury and got off to a slow start this season before finally showing some promise in week 3, when he rushed for 83 yards on 16 carries. With Wells injured once again, look for a big week from Williams. Low end RB2 or good flex start.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve


Denarius Moore came on strong near the end of 2011 NFL season as he built a good relationship with newly acquired QB Carson Palmer. The Raiders offense is definitely lacking in play makers, so the fact that he has become Palmer's favorite target and after some injuries, seemingly his only healthy option, makes Moore worthy of looking into for a start this week. Both Darrius Heyward-Bey and starting TE Brandon Meyers left week 3's game early due to injury and early reports are neither will play in week 4. The Raiders will be in a tough position vs. the Texans this coming week and will likely be playing from behind and needing to pass often. Look for Moore to have his best week of this short season. Makes for a solid flex start this week and low end WR3
