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

Josh Freeman, QB, Tampa Bay (at Atlanta): Freeman has scored 12 or more fantasy points in four straight game. The Falcons are 27th versus the pass.

LeGarrette Blount, QB, Tampa Bay (at Atlanta): The matchup isn’t stellar, but Blount is owned in just 34 percent of Yahoo! leagues and is coming off a 120-yard game.

Patrick Crayton, WR, San Diego (at Houston): Philip Rivers should pass all over the Texans, who were ranked last against the pass entering last night. Crayton is San Diego’s best healthy wide receiver.

Benjamin Watson, TE, Cleveland (vs. New England): Only two teams allow more fantasy points to opposing tight ends than the Patriots.

Jason Hanson, K, Detroit (vs. Jets): Hanson has kicked multiple field goals in six of seven games.

Tampa Bay (at Atlanta): A good available defense might be hard to find this week, but the Buccaneers are ranked fourth in takeaways.
