Another quick fix to your starting lineup is wide receiver Stephen Hill of the New York Jets. Hill emerged as Mark Sanchez‘s favorite target in the preseason and nothing has changed after week 1. Only now he’s scoring touchdowns that matter and I don’t expect that trend to stop either. Despite the Tebow controversy, Mark Sanchez was a top 10 fantasy QB last year and his numbers could possilby increase with the addition of a target lIke Hill, who the Jets acquired in this past year’s draft. Now he is only a rookie and I don’t expect him to be the next Julio Jones, but Stephen Hill has the talent and a willing QB to get him the ball so not only should you be picking him up off the free agent wire, but he’s also worth starting as the Jet’s offense probably won’t be relying on the running game as much as most experts predicted before the season.

Last but not least I want to formally introduce you to the next Arian Foster on your fantasy team and his name is Alfred Morris, the rookie running back for the Washington Redskins. Head Coach Mike Shanahan is famous for producing running backs from out of nowhere in Denver where he won 2 Super Bowls and now he seems poised to follow that same winning formula in Washington. RG III may not be John Elway, but Alfred Morris could be Terrelle Davis, emerging from the pack of RB’s Washington has as the starter and I see no reason to think he might lose his starting job as Roy Helu Jr. is still recovering from injury and the speculation is his job won’t be waiting for him when he gets back. Morris had 21 fantasy points in week 1 and if the Redskins offense continues to put up anywhere close to the numbers they did the first week of the season, Alfred Morris is going to win offensive rookie of the year in the NFL and the Redskins will be playoff bound with a rookie QB and RB. Now that is a projection I wouldn’t put money on but I like the odds Alfred Morris is not only a quick fix to your RB problem, but a permanent solution and possibly a top 10 RB when the season ends.
