Now for your quarterback fill-in. Your choices are J.P. Losman (Bills), Andrew Walter ( Raiders) and Damon Huard ( Chiefs). Less than ideal, to say the least. Losman plays well against the Vikings, and he seems to be gaining confidence. Walter stumbles around behind a bad line against the Browns. Huard looks the best, throwing for 230 yards and a score against the 49ers.

The choice? Walter. He's got San Francisco in Week 5--the Niners' D hasn't exactly been stingy when it comes to the air--while the Bills are at Chicago and the Chiefs at Arizona. You'd take Huard if you knew he'd play, but there are rumors that Trent Green will be back from his concussion.

So it's Musa Smith and Andrew Walter starting for you in Week 5. Not great, but successful fantasy owners have to know how to improvise.

Maurice Jones-Drew RB JAGUARS Rookie from UCLA torched the Colts for 135 total yards and a TD--and there'll be more to come.

Jon Kitna QB LIONS He's finally on the same page with soon-to-be superstar Roy Williams.

Roscoe Parrish WR BILLS Slippery and fast, he's emerging as a threat to go all the way on every touch.

Alex Smith QB 49ERS He has passed for at least 200 yards and a touchdown in all three games, with no interceptions.

Greg Jennings WR PACKERS Not only should he be on your team, but he's also getting close to weekly must-start status.
