It's been impressive that such a mediocre QB has been able to put up such reasonably decent number the last few weeks. After a nauseating first half against the Bucs in Week 4 in which he threw two INTs and fumbled, Campbell came back and threw for 2 TDs in the second half. It was his second straight week with multiple TD passes. Against an average Carolina D, Campbell is a decent flex option in bigger leagues.
Portis is showing a little wear on his tires, but Jim Zorn keeps giving him the ball. He had 98 yards on 25 carries against Tampa, easily his best output of the year. He hasn't sniffed the end zone. He's a No. 2 fantasy option against a Carolina D that got absolutely smoked on MNF against the Cowboys.
A week after going nuts against the Lions (10 rec, 178 rec yards), Moss came back to Earth, but nevertheless had a decent game fantasy wise with 2 rec for 74 yards and a 59 yard TD reception. It can be postured that Moss was held in check because he was up against an excellent corner in Aqib Talib, who had 3 INT on the day. Santana Moss is a good No. 2 fantasy WR who should have a good game against Carolina.
He had nary a catch against the Bucs' subpar D and only one pass was thrown his way. He is not a recommended fantasy option at this point, though he could be a valuable piece of the puzzle if the Skins are going to have any success.
Targeted a team high 10 times against the Bucs, Cooley has caught the most balls on the Skins through the first four games with 22 rec, 254 rec yards and 2 TD. Over the course of 16 games, he's on pace for 88 rec, 1016 rec yards and 8 TD. Anything close to these numbers makes him a top tier fantasy TE. Cooley is a must start against every team.
The Skins' D has been pretty good, though a lot of that probably has to do with the below average teams they've faced. Carolina is another average offense and they're a low end No. 1 option against them.
Delhomme had 2 TD and 7 INT going into the bye week. He is still Jon Fox's guy. He's not an advisable option though, even as a flex. Also complicating matters is the fact that Steve Smith might punch him in the face at any minute.
He's got 9 catches on the season to go with his 180 rushing yards and 2 TD going into the bye. He's been hampered by the fact that the Panthers have been losing so much, forcing Delhomme to throw. In what figures to be a close game against Washington, consider Williams a low-end No. 1 option.
Steve Smith used to be the best WR in the league. Now, he's not even the best WR named Steve Smith. After a lousy game against Dallas going into the bye, (4 rec, 38 rec yards) Steve Smith has dropped to being a No. 2 fantasy WR. If they awarded fantasy points for dirty looks directed towards QBs, Smith would still be an elite fantasy WR.
Though he led Carolina in catches and yards against the Cowboys (6 rec, 51 rec yards), with Delhomme and the Panthers' passing game issues, Mushin Muhammad is the Panthers' No. 2 option and a low end No. 3 fantasy option.
Carolina has given up a lot of points thus far. Despite the fact that the Redskins offense is anemic, they are a low-end option at best. Still, coming off their bye, they're not a terrible choice against a Redskins team that wants to deliver the Panthers their first win.
