There appears to be a couple of quality choices on the Tampa Bay offense for those to use in the critical stage of the fantasy season, as Legarette Blount should get plenty of touches against a shaky Washington defense and Mike Williams has shown himself to be a useful second receiver in weekly lineups. Kellen Winslow’s more of a lower-end alternative at the tight end spot, however, and Josh Freeman’s overall numbers don’t warrant a start at quarterback.
Probably the safest selection among an uninspiring cast of Redskin players is Chris Cooley, with Randy Moss a decent pick at wide receiver and Anthony Armstrong possesses sleeper potential, albeit one that carries risk. Donovan McNabb’s a real roll of the dice due to his up-and-down performances, and it’s likely Washington will just sprinkle in Torain off his long layoff. Rookie teammate Keiland Williams (229 rushing yards, 30 receptions, 5 TD) may be the better bet for those seeking help at running back. Neither the Redskins’ Graham Gano nor Tampa’s Connor Barth is an especially attractive play at kicker, but the Buccaneers’ defense could be intriguing considering its opponent’s coming off a six-turnover day.
