Among players owned in less than 50% of Yahoo! leagues, here are seven quick fixes if one of your starters is off:

Donovan McNabb, QB, Minnesota (vs. Arizona): The Cardinals’ 26th-ranked pass defense has allowed three QBs to throw for at least 290 yards this season.

Bernard Scott, RB, Cincinnati (at Jacksonville): Cedric Benson could begin serving his suspension this week. The Jaguars gave up 177 yards rushing to the Saints on Sunday.

Victor Cruz, WR, N.Y. Giants (vs. Seattle): Cruz has enjoyed back-to-back big games and may have passed Mario Manningham on the depth chart.

Michael Jenkins, WR, Minnesota (vs. Arizona): Jenkins has scored at least seven fantasy points in three of his four games. The Cardinals allow 283 passing yards per game.

Jermaine Gresham, TE, Cincinnati (at Jacksonville): After Sunday, Gresham was 11th in fantasy scoring among tight ends, and the Jags have allowed the third-most fantasy points to tight ends.

John Kasay, K, New Orleans (at Carolina): Kasay is a top-five fantasy kicker playing on a team that scores plenty.

Tennessee defense (at Pittsburgh): The Steelers’ offense is among the NFL’s worst at scoring, protecting the QB and holding on to the football. The Titans allow a league-low 14 points per game.
