While we're not projecting starting type stats for these players, they have good potential and could surprise. This week's picks include Isaiah Pead, Jason Snelling, Ryan Broyles, Aaron Dobson, and Stephen Hill.

FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

When the Texans drafted DeAndre Hopkins, their hope was that he would provide them with some help in opening up the offense and allowing Andre Johnson to face less double coverage. What they didn't expect was for Hopkins to make an impact so early. Johnson hasn't been able to finish the last two games, leaving Hopkins as the go-to guy and he has delivered. Two weeks ago, he caught seven passes for 117 yards and the game winning touchdown in overtime. Last week he caught six passes for 60 yards. With Johnson less than 100%, the Texans will continue to look Hopkins' way. If you need a flex or receiver starter, Hopkins makes for a great option, especially in Point Per reception leagues.

Update Sunday September 29 - Pyor had a set back satruday night and will not play today

Terrelle Pryor has definitely been one of the bigger surprises of the first three weeks of the 2013 season, showing he can not only run but also pass the ball. Throughout the first three weeks, he has passed for 624 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 198 yards. Pryor has an above average match up this week, as the Raiders face the Redskins - who are giving up the second most passing yards this season at 333 per game. Pryor left the game late in the 4th quarter in Week 3 with a concussion. This is the first week with teams on byes. Those teams this week are quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton, so owners need alternatives. For those in that situation, Pryor is definitely worth a look. Follow his injury/practice status throughout the week.
