Week in review

A crop of young QBs looked good in week 10. Some lost, but not necessarily because of their signal calling. Tyler Thigpen, Brady Quinn, Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco all put up respectable numbers. Indeed, they seem to be doing better than old retreads like Gus Frerotte, Brad Johnson and Daunte Culpepper.

Looks like the Saints' WR Marques Colston is back as QB Drew Brees' fave target - weak teams make players look good. Just look at RB Maurice Jones-Drew against Detroit and RB Thomas Jones against St. Louis

Who to Start

QB Jason Campbell against Dallas? Why not? In Week 3 he looked pretty good against the Cowboys in Big D.

Unleash all of your Eagles at Cincinnati. A lot of Dolphins look tempting against Oakland, but Miami's stars have put up only so-so numbers. After a big week in Cleveland, QB Jay Cutler may not be as stellar in Atlanta against the Falcons.

QB Jeff Garcia at home versus Minnesota is a solid option. Will the Jets be worn out after piling on the Rams? It's a short week as they play at New England on Thursday night. You may want to look for better matchups.

Waiver Wire Watch

BenJarvus Green-Ellis may be the RB of choice in New England, and he's available in most leagues. Arizona WR Steve Breaston is available in about 50 percent of leagues, as well. He's still putting up nice numbers despite the return of Anquan Boldin.

You can still grab QB Tyler Thigpen, too. The Chiefs are awful, yes, but he's getting points somehow.

This week's TE from nowhere is the Jets' Dustin Keller. Don't get too excited by his numbers against the Rams, but if in need, he's certainly worth a look.

Bye Alerts: No byes this week
