QBRobert Griffin III

Robert Griffin III

250 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT, 50 rush yards, rush TD

Griffin remains the top fantasy quarterback in the land after throwing for a touchdown and running for another (and 85 yards) against the Bengals in Week 3. The Buccaneers are an improved defense, but the Heisman winner shouldn't have too much trouble against a bad secondary.

RBAlfred Morris

Alfred Morris

70 rush yards, 1 rec, 5 rec yards

The rookie running back out of Florida Atlantic University scored again in Week 3 against Cincinnati, rushing 17 times for 78 yards. It's clear head coach Mike Shanahan is sticking with Morris for now, and fantasy players should too. The Bucs have a tough run defense, but Morris and RGIII might be too much to handle in Week 4.

RBEvan Royster

Evan Royster

5 rush yards, 2 rec, 10 rec yards

Royster rushed twice for 21 yards and caught two other passes before injuring his knee in Week 3 against the Bengals. The injury is apparently not too serious, but Royster isn’t worth owning while Alfred Morris continues to shine.

WRPierre Garcon

Pierre Garcon

5 rec, 65 yards, rec TD

The Redskins' top receiver remains sidelined with a foot injury. The team is optimistic he might play in Week 4 against Tampa Bay, which is a great matchup for Garcon, and fantasy owners should be prepared to get him back in their lineups. RGIII still hasn't had a full game with his playmaker.

WRLeonard Hankerson

Leonard Hankerson

3 rec, 40 yards

Hankerson started in place of Pierre Garcon (foot) against the Bengals in Week 3, and responded with four catches for 56 yards. If Garcon is able to start in Week 4 like the team hopes, then Hankerson is not worth owning anymore.

TEFred Davis

Fred Davis

4 rec, 50 yards, rec TD

Seven catches for 90 yards and suddenly Fred Davis is back on the fantasy radar. The Buccaneers should have trouble with the Redskins offense, as well as with the fifth-year veteran out of USC. Start him if you don't have an elite alternative at the position.

KBilly Cundiff

Billy Cundiff

3 PATs, 2 FGs

The Redskins' kicker was good for one field goal and four extra points in Week 3 against the Bengals. He's a solid start against the Buccaneers in Week 4. He has five field goals and 12 extra points on the season.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

Despite getting their second defensive touchdown in two games, the Redskins continued to play poorly, giving up 38 points to the Bengals. This defense is averaging about 33 points allowed per game, and isn't even a recommended fantasy play against the Bucs in Week 4.

QBJosh Freeman

Josh Freeman

225 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT, 20 rush yards

It was a rough afternoon for Freeman in Week 3, as he threw for just 110 yards, one touchdown and one interception against Dallas. He has been a subpar fantasy quarterback so far, but the Redskins' pass defense cures all ills. Washington has allowed an NFL-high 10 passing touchdowns, so consider Freeman for one more week.

RBDoug Martin

Doug Martin

105 rush yards, rush TD, 4 rec, 35 rec yards

The Cowboys were able to key on the rookie running back in Week 3, holding him to 53 yards on 19 carries and two catches for 21 yards. The Redskins have allowed one rushing touchdown this season -- but in Week 4 Martin could score through the air, where the Redskins have allowed 10 touchdowns.

RBLeGarrette Blount

LeGarrette Blount

15 rush yards

Blount still isn't a big part of the Buccaneers' offense now that rookie Doug Martin has become the starter. Blount is not worth owning in fantasy until Martin is injured.

WRVincent Jackson

Vincent Jackson

7 rec, 75 yards, rec TD

Jackson caught one pass for 29 yards against Dallas despite being targeted seven times in Week 3. Luckily, the Redskins' pass defense has allowed 10 passing touchdowns and it could cure Tampa Bay’s passing problems.

WRMike Williams

Mike Williams

4 rec, 55 yards, rec TD

The third-year wide receiver had a quiet Week 3, like most of the other Buccaneers, catching two passes for 33 yards against Dallas. The Redskins have a horrible pass defense, so things are looking up for Williams in Week 4.

TEDallas Clark

Dallas Clark

2 rec, 25 yards

Clark caught one pass for no yards against the Cowboys in Week 3 as he continues to try to find a place in this offense. Even with the horrible Redskins pass defense coming into town, he's a mere fantasy backup.

KConnor Barth

Connor Barth

3 PATs, 3 FGs

Barth had just two kicks in Week 3 -- a 28-yard field goal and an extra point. The Buccaneers should get into scoring position much more in Week 4 against a bad Redskins defense, making Barth a player to gamble on in many fantasy leagues.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Buccaneers had a decent defensive outing against the Cowboys in Week 3 from a fantasy perspective, with four sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception. Even so, the Redskins are coming to town with a dangerous offense, making the Bucs a fantasy defense to avoid in Week 4.
