Danny OíBrien, QB, Maryland

OíBrien has been on fire the last two weeks, throwing three touchdowns against Boston College and four touchdowns against Wake Forest. He currently has 13 touchdowns to three interceptions, all three of which came in one game.

Josh Harris, RB, Wake Forest

Two weeks ago, Harris rushed for 287 yards and two touchdowns against Virginia Tech. Donít expect that again, but Harris scored last week as well and has five touchdowns on the season.

Big 12

Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

Jerrod Johnsonís struggles have been Tannehillís gain, as heís been outstanding in the Aggies last two games. Heís been responsible for eight touchdowns, and he threw for 449 yards against Texas Tech last week. Heís an absolute must-add in all league types.

Josh Gordon, WR, Baylor

With Robert Griffin taking his game to a new level this year, Gordon and fellow wideout Kendall Wright have done the same. Gordon is a bit hit-or-miss as Baylorís big-play specialist, but heís finding the end zone at a rate of once for every four catches, so he only needs a few opportunities to make a big impact.

Big East

Dontavia Bogan, WR, South Florida

Bogan has only scored two touchdowns this season, but heís still had five good games this season, including an 11-catch, 98-yard performance against West Virginia.

Victor Anderson, RB, Louisville

Check Andersonís injury status leading up to this weekend, but with starter Bilal Powell (knee) potentially out against Syracuse, Anderson could be in for a big workload.

Big Ten

Ted Bolser, TE, Indiana

Bolser started the season off really well before hitting a slump. However, heís had four catches in each of his last two games (70 yards, 58 yards), so maybe heís back on track. Since heís a tight end, heís worth considering.

Mark Dell, WR, Michigan State

In four of his last five games, Dell has at least 90 yards and heís scored four touchdowns as well. The Spartans are finished with the tough part of their schedule, and that bodes well for Dell and company.

Conference USA

Cole Beasley, WR, SMU

Over the past five games, Beasley has been one of the nationís best fantasy wideouts. Heís scored three touchdowns, and in the games he hasnít found the end zone he totaled 158 and 135 yards.

Orleans Darkwa, RB, Tulane

Darkwa has gotten more carries recently, and heís done the most with them. Two weeks ago he totaled 114 yards and two touchdowns and last week he tallied 193 yards. Heís definitely a must-own in most leagues, because Tulane running backs have a history of being productive, and Darkwa is definitely impressing.


Tommy Rees, QB, Notre Dame

With Dayne Crist out, Rees is going to get his opportunity to start for the Fighting Irish. Against Tulsa, he threw for 334 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions, which gives some hope for his future.


Boo Jackson, QB, Ohio

Jackson has had some issues with interceptions, but heís gotten a good amount of touchdowns, as well. While heís only thrown 12, heís rushed for six more, five of which have come in the past three weeks.

Nick Harwell, WR, Miami (OH)

Harwell was a non-entity in Miamiís offense early in the season, but heís put up huge numbers in the past three weeks. He's caught 27 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns in that span, and heís worth a gamble in most formats.


Jeremy Kerley, WR, TCU

Kerley hasnít had many big games in terms of receiving yards, but heís scored a receiving touchdown in each of the last four games and he threw a rushing touchdown in there, as well.

Leonard Mason, RB, Colorado State

It may have been against New Mexico, perhaps the worst team in the FBS, but last week Mason tallied 124 yards and three touchdowns. In his last three games heís played heís gotten over 120 yards rushing.


Doug Baldwin, WR, Stanford

Baldwinís last game (five receptions, 56 yards) was merely decent, but his two games before that were better, including a 98-yard, two-touchdown performance against USC, and he has a great quarterback throwing him the ball.

Steven Threet, QB, Arizona State

Threet struggled through injury against California two weeks ago, but last week he rebounded with a 300-yard, three-touchdown game against Washington State.


Denarius Moore, WR, Tennessee

The Volunteers are having a major down year, and they have had issues at quarterback, but Moore caught six passes for 228 yards and a score against South Carolina, so heís finding a way to make it work.

Jarius Wright, WR, Arkansas

Wright caught six passes for 87 yards and two touchdowns against Vanderbilt last week, and with Greg Childs now done for the season Wright will probably be getting more looks.

Sun Belt

T.Y. Hilton, WR, Florida International

Hilton reeled in eight passes for 124 yards last week, and he scored touchdowns in the two games before that. Florida International isnít good, but the Sun Belt isnít exactly the toughest conference.

Aaron Spikes, RB, Louisiana-Lafayette

Spikes doesnít get a lot of carries, but he makes up for it with receiving production. He has six total touchdowns in the past five games, so heís getting it done one way or another.


Lennon Creer, RB, Louisiana Tech

Creer has been outstanding the past three weeks. Heís scored two touchdowns in each of those games and gained at least 120 yards on the ground in those contests. The Tennessee transfer is finally getting the ball

Kenny Turner, RB, New Mexico State

Turnerís performance has improved in his last three games. In addition to having at least 74 yards rushing, heís had at least 22 yards receiving in each game, and heís scored one touchdown as well.
