Week 4: Start 'Em

Though these players might have been riding your fantasy bench the last few weeks, we recommend you start them this week. This week's picks include Kerry Collins, Glen Coffee, Darren McFadden, Santana Moss, and Mike Sims-Walker.


For the past 3 seasons, there seems to come a point where someone is talking up and singing the praises of Vernon Davis and each year he finds a way to disappoint. Coming off a career week where he tied his career high with 7 receptions and set career highs with 96 yards and 2 touchdowns, this will surely have people looking at Davis. The 49ers don't have a true #1 receiver and so Davis should be in line for a lot of looks. This week the 49ers play the Rams, who have given up16 receptions for 186 yards and 2 touchdowns and almost all of it was over the first 2 weeks. Look for Davis to break his pattern and put up 2 good weeks in a row.

Injury Status: Doubtful - Knee


Last season Fasano set career highs in his first year in Miami, catching 34 balls for 454 yards and 7 touchdowns -- which led many to expect big things from him this year. So far he has been a huge disappointment with only 3 receptions for 11 yards and no touchdowns, and has been one of the reasons the Dolphins' offense has taken a step back this season. Second year QB Chad Henne will be making his first start for the injured Chad Pennington and will look to Fasano as his safety net. Fasano faces the Bills this week, who have had trouble stopping tight ends so far this season. Over the first 3 weeks of the season tight ends have caught 23 balls for 246 yards and 4 touchdowns. If you need help with the tight end position this week, Fasano makes a good start.
