- Faces in the CrowdJune 11, 2001
Miles Austin, WR, Cowboys
Dallas has waited all season for a receiver to distinguish himself, and with a franchise-record 250 yards against the Chiefs on Sunday, fourth-year man Austin finally is the one to break out. He's a smart waiver claim even though the Cowboys have a bye this week.
Ahmad Bradshaw, RB, Giants
Backups often have big days in lopsided games like Sunday's Giants-Raiders encounter, but Bradshaw actually ignited the blowout by scoring twice early. There's no controversy brewing—starter Brandon Jacobs ran 21 times—but Bradshaw is a good flex play going forward.
Jeremy Maclin, WR, Eagles
The latest example of Philadelphia's embarrassment of fantasy football riches, the rookie first-round pick had six catches for 142 yards and two scores to become the third Eagles receiver to have a 100-yard day. He's a definite start next week in Oakland.
Kellen Winslow, TE, Buccaneers
Winslow has settled in nicely in Tampa, catching 26 passes for 257 yards and four TDs while becoming QB Josh Johnson's favorite target. He's a good start this week against Carolina: Tight ends have been the leading receivers in three of the four games against the Panthers.
Glen Coffee, RB, 49ers
In three games starting for an injured Frank Gore, Coffee ran for 2.8 yards per carry and one score. The Niners have this week off and Gore is expected back for Week 7, so Coffee's already limited value, other than as an insurance policy, has vanished.
