While you may think that your waiver wire is picked clean of any possible talent we here at Fantasy Boyz sports think you should take another glance for Christ's sake.  After some breakout performances in week 3 from some little known players you may have some roster decisions to make......

Running Backs:

Alfonso Smith - With Beanie Wells nursing a bum shoulder Smith carried the load with 17 carries for 54 yards.  While that doesn't blow anyone away running backs are hard to find.

Worth a look in larger leagues (Especially for Wells owners)

Demarco Murray - Sure Felix Jones finally busted out Monday and Murray was again a non factor but maybe you went beddy bye before noticing Felix again banged up his shoulder.  If he is unable to go this week look for Murray's carries to be in the double digits.

Worth a look in larger leagues (Especially for Jones owners)

Hunter could get more carries behind the brittle Gore as the season wears on
Kendall Hunter - With Frank Gore playing on a creaky ankle Murray was able to hit pay-dirt for the first time in his young career.  Word out of San Fran is that Hunter's role could increase as the year moves along.  He could be a sleeper pickup that pays big dividends later this season

Worth a look in larger leagues (Especially for Gore owners)

Wide Receivers:

Torrey Smith - With 5 grabs for 152 yards and 3 TDs Smith has burst onto the fantasy scene.  He appears to possibly be the deep threat the Ravens thought they had acquired in Lee Evans.  It is hard to say how this will all play out as Evans should be back in the lineup sooner than later.  Suffice it to say however that Smith is going to be flying off the free agency shelves this week.

Should be owned in larger leagues
Smith shown pulling in one of his 3 TDs Sunday

Victor Cruz - Another young receiver that had their first big game of their career this preseason wonder of years past finally did it in a regular season game.  The fantasy prospective for Cruz however isn't quite as sunny as Smith's.  Manningham should be back this week and Cruz's targets will taper off dramatically.

Keep an eye on in larger leagues

Questions fielded by Fantasy Boyz Collaborator PORKNUCKLES....

So lately reader questions have been coming in hot and heavy so we thought we would take the time to answer a few of the better ones.

The first question was given to us by Roscoe in New Jersey

Q: Who's the Cowboy WR that's gonna step up on Monday Night? Ogletree or Holley?

A: If you are debating between these back up Dallas WRs I hope for your
sake this is a 14 team league.  Holley looks to be the hot hand...RIDE
The next  group of question is from Psubills62 in Indiana
Q:  I'm struggling for consistent RB and WR production. I need a RB, RB, RB/WR, WR, WR out of these guys:

Frank Gore @ Cincy
Shonn Greene @ Oakland
Tim Hightower @ Dallas
Darren Sproles vs. Houston
Reggie Bush @ Cleveland

Desean Jackson vs. NYG
Brandon Marshall @ Cleveland
Mike Sims-Walker vs. Baltimore
Denarious Moore vs. NYJ

A: Gore- Hightower-Djax-Marshall and slot Greene in the flex.  I still
think Greene can have a solid season

Q: Haha sorry for all the questions. I also have the following QB situation:

 Mike Vick vs. NYG
 Ben Roethlisberger @ Indy
 Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. NE

A: FITZY.  Steelers will probably get up early and run, where as Bills
will probably be down early and have to throw against a questionable
Pats D

Q:  Lastly I've got Mike Wallace and Desean Jackson as my starting receivers for now.
 If Jackson isn't able to go, who would you start out of these:

 Mario Manningham @ Philly (assuming he's healthy)
 Lance Moore vs. Houston
 Eric Decker @ Tennessee

A: I like Manningham if he plays, but Decker is next on my list.  Don;t
get too cute, at this point in the season you still have to go with
the proven players
Next questions are from Mike in Boston
Q1: Is Fred Davis a legit starting option?

Q2: Fitzy or Big Ben

Q3: WR3: Denarius Moore, Malcolm Floyd, Crabtree or Doucet?

A1: Fred Davis is here to stay.  In the past every time he filled in for
an injured Cooley he came thru and I am surprised its taken him this
long to become the man

A2: Fitzy.  Steelers will probably get up early and run, where as Bills
will probably be down early and have to throw against a questionable
Pats D

A3:Floyd- Everyone scores on KC and my ex GF so prepared to get lucky!

 Below is a comprehensive list of the top 260 NHL players in the Fantasy Hockey World.  The list is brought to us by our very own Fantasy Boyz hockey writer and collaborator Bill Choinski.  Feel free to use this list to get the upper hand in your league.

Overall Rank  Position Rank  PLAYER POS TEAM Comments
1 1 Alexander Ovechkin LW Washington Best player available- Off year last year, he can lead the league in Goals, PPP, Shots 
2 1 Steven Stamkos C Tampa Bay Could have 60 goals if he stays hot. Will crack 50 
3 1 Corey Perry RW Anaheim Will cool off a little bit from last year-….. just  a little bit…..wont lead the NHL in scoring
4 2 Daniel Sedin LW Vancouver This is the Sedin who can score goals-led the NHL in points scored last year with 104
5 3 Bobby Ryan LW Anaheim Off year in 2011, what makes him great is some leagues list him at all 3 forward positions. Could hit 40 goals
6 2 Henrik Sedin C Vancouver The Sedin with all the assists. Won scoring title 2 years ago 
7 2* Ryan Kesler C Vancouver I ranked him tied with Henrick. He will come close with points, and makes up the difference with winning a ton of faceoffs as well as SHP's
8 3 Evgeni Malkin C Pittsburgh Has tendancy to take the night off- Pens need him bad with Sid the Kid out for a few more months
9 4 Nicklas Backstrom C Washington A point per game player- Ovie's set up guy and assist leader
10 4 Martin St. Louis LW Tampa Bay A playmaker on a team loaded with scoring potential. Stamkos' set up guy
11 1 Ryan Miller G Buffalo Owner sunk a lot of money in surrounding his best player with a top Defense 
12 5 Ryan Getzlaf C Anaheim Perry's right hand man 
13 2 Tim Thomas G Boston Vezina Trophy winner- can he repeat? 
14 3 Roberto Luongo G Vancouver Schwab gives Vancouver a reason to rest Luongo 25 games this year and try to keep him fresh for the playoffs
15 4 Henrik Lundqvist G N.Y. Rangers 11 shutouts last year
16 6 Pavel Datsyuk C Detroit Most talented Euro next to Ovie 
17 7 Sidney Crosby C Pittsburgh The next Super Mario is one Donkey Kong punch from being the next Lindross. Potentially out until Thanksgiving hurts draft position
18 5 Rick Nash LW Columbus Finally has a center in Jeff Carter that will allow him to flourish 
19 2 Jarome Iginla RW Calgary On the decline- trade rumors? 
20 3 Patrick Kane RW Chicago If only they had a fantasy category for punching out jerk cabbies- Maybe bring Carcillo on the next ride
21 8 Joe Thornton C San Jose Coming off a really bad year. Should be a point per game player 
22 9 Jonathan Toews C Chicago Was only center to win over 900 faceoffs last year. Point per game player
23 4 Jeff Skinner RW Carolina Hot new rookie last year - should be a decent power forward option. 
24 10 Anze Kopitar C Los Angeles Could be a top 5 center if all the pieces come together. Had A 35 Point October 2 seasons ago
25 11 Henrik Zetterberg C Detroit Always solid
26 5 Dany Heatley RW Minnesota Moves to a team where he will be the main weapon- could see a jump in PP points
27 6 Zach Parise LW New Jersey Hurt all last year- but can score 35 -40 goals and have an equal amount of assists. Contract year
28 5 Carey Price G Montreal Will get a motherload of starts- can the Habs defense hold up? 
29 1 Zdeno Chara D Boston Top rated D player who doesn't dominate one particular category. Decent offense, PIMs, and he hits people. Plus/Minus is outstanding
30 6 Alexander Semin RW Washington Cleans up with Backstrom and Ovechkin - gets plenty of shots on goal. 
31 7 Milan Lucic LW Boston One of the ultimate stat stuffers- can score, led all LW with hits, and gets well over 100 PIMs
32 6 Antti Niemi G San Jose Heatly trade brought in Brent Burns- should help Niemi avoid last year's slow start 
33 8 Ryane Clowe LW San Jose Another Stat stuffer
34 7 Ilya Bryzgalov G Philadelphia Next goaltending savior in Philly. Flyers rolled the dice big time with this guy clearing Richards and Carter out to make cap room
35 9 Ilya Kovalchuk LW New Jersey Can challenge for the scoring title every year, but has a horrific +/-  that drags his value down l
36 2 Keith Yandle D Phoenix If only this guy had offense in front of him. His numbers would be huge
37 12 Mike Richards C Los Angeles LA got themselves a bonified 2nd center. Could vault LA into a final 4 team out of the west. SHP's are his specialty
38 3 Mike Green D Washington Once a Norris contender, needs a bounce back year. Should rack up the assists on the PP
39 13 Eric Staal C Carolina Best of the 23 Staal brothers in the NHL. 
40 8 Tomas Vokoun G Washington What a steal for the Caps. Finally playing on a decent team after exile in Miami, he might just be a top 3 goalie in the win category
41 10 Patrick Marleau LW San Jose Getting rid of Healey gives this guy more opportunities- also plays C
42 4 Nicklas Lidstrom D Detroit At this point, I think he's just a robot. Still amazing after 19 seasons. His career is older than the internet
43 14 Marian Hossa RW Chicago Injuries might make his draft ranking slide- prime for the picking. He also nets the occasional shortie. Hawks need him to produce
44 9 Vincent Lecavalier C Tampa Bay A 9 million dollar 2nd line center. Will go higher than he should based on name recognition alone
45 10 Marc-Andre Fleury G Pittsburgh His stats got better the longer Crosby stayed out
46 5 Pekka Rinne G Nashville Stud 
47 7 Thomas Vanek LW Buffalo Which guy do you get each night? He can pull a hat trick or a dissapearing act any given week
48 11 Chris Stewart RW St. Louis Power forward picked up where he left off after the trade from Colorado
49 6 Jeff Carter C Columbus Will flourish with Nash on his wing
50 8 John Tavares C N.Y. Islanders Good, but not great
51 15 Brad Richards C N.Y. Rangers He will pile up assists with sniper Gaborik on his wing
52 11 Christian Ehrhoff D Buffalo Let's see if he lives up tto the big contract. Will QB the Buffalo PP unit
53 12 Martin Havlat RW San Jose Finally surrounded by better talent
54 12 Corey Crawford G Chicago Middle of the road goalie benefitted from a strong defense. Good 2nd stringer for your team 
55 9 Dan Boyle D San Jose Will put up top offensive numbersespecially on the PP
56 16 Lubomir Visnovsky D Anaheim Top scoring D-man last year. Will cool off quite a bit but still a top guy
57 17 Drew Doughty D Los Angeles Off year last year- ranked way too low- will bounce back strong 
58 18 Duncan Keith D Chicago Like the entire Blackhawk team, had an off year after an awesome Cup season 
59 7 Jamie Benn LW Dallas Rising star on the Stars
60 13 Scott Hartnell LW Philadelphia Hits/scores/ fights. What's not to like? Oh yeah, he's on one of the most hated teams in the NHL 
61 10 Marian Gaborik RW N.Y. Rangers Brad Richards could make Gabby a 50 goal scorer. Great value here 
62 14 Jaroslav Halak G St. Louis This mule will carry a big load- hope he doesn't wear out by February
63 12 Dustin Byfuglien D Winnipeg Had over 300 shots on goal- converted speedy winger 
64 13 Dion Phaneuf D Toronto Overrated
65 15 Miikka Kiprusoff G Calgary Plays a ton and his game hurts from all the workload 
66 19 Danny Briere C Philadelphia Needs to mentor the youth movement in Philly
67 14 Tobias Enstrom D Winnipeg If the Jets had better scoring up front, would post really good offensive numbers. Solid
68 15 Shea Weber D Nashville Once was the top scoring defenseman in the NHL. Maybe some value here if your team lacks scoring
69 11 Teemu Selanne RW Anaheim Good for 70 points this year- IF he decides not to retire. 
70 12 Alex Burrows RW Vancouver He scores, he hits, he fights, he hates referees. Love it
71 16 Alex Goligoski D Dallas Let's see how he does without Crosby and Malkin to feed the puck to. Will be the Star's top blue liner
72 13 Steve Downie RW Tampa Bay Put up pretty good offensive numbers abd 170 PIMs in only 50 games last year. A stat stuffer
73 14 Loui Eriksson RW Dallas No Richards- can he keep pace? 
74 15 Phil Kessel RW Toronto If Toronto has a prayer of playoffs- Kessel needs to dominate. I don't think it will happen 
75 20 David Backes C St. Louis Poser boy for Stat Stuffers. Had a horrible start to the season last year. 
76 21 Derek Roy C Buffalo 35 points in 35 games before hit by the injury bug. Look for 70 points this year
77 22 Mikko Koivu C Minnesota Heatley trade increases his value 
78 16 Cam Ward G Carolina 70 games started - will go months without a rest. 
79 23 Patrick Sharp C Chicago A point a game player with 250 faceoffs won anf 250 shots on goal. 
80 17 Chris Pronger D Philadelphia Bryzgalof adds a plus 15 to his plus/minus. No more Philly soft goals 
81 18 Tyler Myers D Buffalo Erhoff will erode some of his fantasy value - 
82 19 Mark Streit D N.Y. Islanders Missed a year- will help youth movement on the Island with blue line offense 
83 20 Kevin Shattenkirk D St. Louis Hot rookie pickup last year. Part of the Stewart trade. Will pop in some goals and lots of assists
84 14 Brandon Dubinsky LW N.Y. Rangers Tough guy who can pop in the critical goal 
85 15 James van Riemsdyk LW Philadelphia Is this the breakout year? It better be after the Flyers let Richards and Carter go
86 17 Jonas Hiller G Anaheim When healthy- he can post great numbers. Has some veteran backup help 
87 16 Johan Franzen RW Detroit If the rest of the Wings stay healthy- he could be a 30/30 guy
88 17 Nathan Horton RW Boston Could be so much better if he applied himself
89 24 David Krejci C Boston Replaced Savard as Boston's #1 center- good for 50 assists
90 18 Martin Brodeur G New Jersey Does he have anything left in the tank? Returning injured players and a hot finish last year could make Jersey dangerous again
91 25 Claude Giroux C Philadelphia Breakout season last year. Will have more opportunities without Richard/Carter
92 26 Matt Duchene C Colorado Hopefully Colorado stops making stupid trades and dealing his best linemates away
93 16 Mike Cammalleri LW Montreal Meh……. Can score in big games
94 17 Alex Tanguay LW Calgary On the downside
95 27 Logan Couture C San Jose Top rookie last year -looking for more 
96 18 Taylor Hall LW Edmonton On the upside. Talented top pick on a roster loaded with young prospects
97 18 Shane Doan RW Phoenix Old and crusty. Lots of hits 
98 19 Steve Mason G Columbus Superior rookie season seems like a distant memory, faded the past 2 years. 
99 19 Dustin Brown RW Los Angeles  Had 300 hits and 230 shots on goal. Will be close to a 30/30 guy as well
100 20 Ryan Callahan RW N.Y. Rangers Shoud be a solid 30/30 guy who gets a lot of hits
101 21 Michael Grabner RW N.Y. Islanders One dimensional- can score in buckets - sophmore slump coming? 
102 21 Mark Giordano D Calgary New top D guy in Calgary
103 22 Alexander Edler D Vancouver Playing with Kesler and the Sedins- will have a lot of points 
104 23 Brent Seabrook D Chicago I have had him on my teams forever. My fantasy good luck charm.  
105 24 James Wisniewski D Columbus Will make Carter and Nash better
106 22 Jaromir Jagr RW Philadelphia Big mystery. I don't have high hopes for him. Let the suckers fall for the name recognition at the draft
107 25 Ryan Suter D Nashville Fantastic D man
108 20 Dwayne Roloson G Tampa Bay Benefits from a strong team in front-this over 40 year old Goalie is the Tim Wakefield of the NHL. Productive at his age
109 26 Brent Burns D San Jose Big Trade involving Heatley will make this guy a HH name- In Canada anyway
110 27 John-Michael Liles D Toronto Rode hard and put away wet- don’t expect much 
111 28 Alex Pietrangelo D St. Louis Blossoming D-man made Jack Johnson expendable - great value here 
112 19 Patrik Elias LW New Jersey A tough guy to call. Depending on linemates, he could produce a point a game or be a non-factor
113 29 Andy McDonald LW St. Louis Versitile, plays Center, had a very good but injury hampered year last year. 
114 30 Tomas Plekanec C Montreal Lots of assists 
115 20 Paul Stastny C Colorado 60 assist potential of he stays on the ice 
116 21 Chris Kunitz LW Pittsburgh Dissapeared when he hit the Pens a few years ago. 
117 22 Andrew Ladd LW Winnipeg Solid leader -Could be a 30/30 guy again this year. 
118 30 Jason Spezza C Ottawa Like Lecavillier, may go higher based on name. Good in spurts, bad for weeks 
119 23 Evander Kane LW Winnipeg Pedestrian scoriong numbers considering all the shots he puits on net- but he delivers hits
120 31 Patrice Bergeron C Boston Good pick for leagues with faceoffs- top Plus/minus guy as well. Average offensive numbers 
121 31 Travis Hamonic D N.Y. Islanders If you are set at scoring and need penalty minutes- Harmonic chipped in 100 from the blue line 
122 32 Kimmo Timonen D Philadelphia Solid fantasy play 
123 24 Ray Whitney LW Phoenix Talented vet stuck on a team that can't score. Will get a lot of PP time. I hope he's renting and didn't buy
124 23 Justin Williams RW Los Angeles Injury prone winger had a great first half last season. 
125 24 Drew Stafford RW Buffalo Needs to shine early to get a top 6 forward slot- if supplanted- could be a waiver wire casualty
126 25 Ales Hemsky RW Edmonton If the kids produce, Hemskey can pile on the assists
127 25 Brooks Laich LW Washington Will get a lot of sloppy seconds on talented Caps team. Wont get a ton of PP opportunities though
128 26 Clarke MacArthur LW Toronto Plesant surprise last year. 
129 26 Martin Erat RW Nashville Always a top waiver wire optioon
130 27 Brenden Morrow LW Dallas Value drops losing Brad Richards
131 21 Ondrej Pavelec G Winnipeg Talk about quantity. Gets a lot of work and sees more rubber on game night than a Harlem hooker. 
132 28 Jussi Jokinen LW Carolina 50 points for the season but can garner you some faceoffs if your league has that stat
133 22 Kari Lehtonen G Dallas Solid 2nd or 3rd option
134 33 Tomas Kaberle D Carolina I think the Trade from Toronto to Boston was payback fro ripping the Leafs off in the Phil Kessel deal. Non Factor in Boston's cup win 
135 34 Dennis Wideman D Washington Buried on talent laden D- corps
136 35 Erik Johnson D Colorado He better be worth what they gave up for him - so far a dissapointment
137 29 James Neal LW Pittsburgh Could and should be much higher on this list. Was great value in Dallas, but the "Real Deal" was a zonk in the 'burgh
138 27 Rene Bourque RW Calgary Wasted talent in Calgary
139 28 Jakub Voracek RW Philadelphia Too much competition in Philly for fantasy impact
140 36 Andrei Markov D Montreal If he gets heaslthy- a supurb fantasy play. Injuries buried his ranking. Take advantage in the draft
141 32 Mike Ribeiro C Dallas Might be a point a game player now that Richard's seat is empty
142 33 Jordan Staal C Pittsburgh Scores shorthanded on a regular basis 
143 37 John Carlson D Washington Budding young defenseman - will take opportunities away from Mike Green
144 38 Ryan Whitney D Edmonton Edmonton stinks- Plan accordingly
145 39 Niklas Kronwall D Detroit Solid D-man.
146 40 Marek Zidlicky D Minnesota Could emerge with Burns gone 
147 34 Patrik Berglund C St. Louis Youngster might make a step up- waiver wire guy to keep an ye on 
148 30 Ryan Malone LW Tampa Bay Hurt last year - if healthy he is a guy with sneaky value
149 29 Mikael Samuelsson RW Vancouver Had a renaissance in Vancouver. Good fill in guy
150 31 Brad Marchand LW Boston Impressive rookie had awesome playoffs during the cup run. Big time sleeper pick - and had 6 shorties to boot
151 32 Tyler Ennis LW Buffalo Also plays Center- will probably get a lot of time there in Centerdepleated Sabres lineup - 200 plus shots on net
152 30 Kris Versteeg RW Florida Poor guy has been passed around like a joint at a biker rally. Florida will put him into fantasy obscurity
153 31 Jason Pominville RW Buffalo Could be trade bait for an established center
154 33 Max Pacioretty LW Montreal Had 28 pys in only 37 games last year. Another sleeper you can probably snipe late in drafts
155 32 Brad Boyes RW Buffalo Could be had on waivers if he starts out hot. Will he be the 30 goal Boyes or the sub 20 goal Boyes?
156 33 Blake Wheeler RW Winnipeg Dissapointing big guy. 
157 34 Brian Gionta RW Montreal Nothing special 
158 34 Peter Mueller LW Colorado Talented guy hasn't played in a year due to concussions. He could be a plesant surprise if healthy
159 35 T.J. Oshie RW St. Louis Injuries held this guy back. Could explode. Watch him on the wire 
160 23 Niklas Backstrom G Minnesota Gets a lot of work and puts up nice numbers. Wins aren't one of them 
161 35 Matt Moulson LW N.Y. Islanders Scored in bunches last year. 
162 36 R.J. Umberger LW Columbus It has been years, but LOOK OUT- IT'S JASON CAMPBELL!

175 38 Derek Stepan C N.Y. Rangers  
176 43 Brian Campbell D Florida  
177 38 Sean Avery LW N.Y. Rangers Also plays C, everybody's favorite bad boy

190 47 Joe Corvo D Boston Decent 4th defenseman
191 42 Tim Connolly C Toronto  
192 43 David Bolland C Chicago Fringe fantasy value - 20 goals, 25 asssists. 
193 44 Bryan Little C Winnipeg  
194 45 Daniel Alfredsson RW Ottawa  
195 39 Tomas Holmstrom LW Detroit Getting older- but Detroit players usually get better with age. Just stay on the ice and out of the trainer's room
196 40 Troy Brouwer LW Washington Could be the missing piece in DC- team character builder and potential sleeper
197 41 Brandon Prust LW N.Y. Rangers He fights and had a career year with goals.Great combo 
198 27 Jose Theodore G Florida  
199 42 Ryan Smyth LW Edmonton Captain Canada back to where it all started over a decade ago. 
200 43 Andrew Brunette LW Chicago He's always that guy who is the first name on the waiver wire- he can produce

206 46 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins C Edmonton  
207 47 Artem Anisimov C N.Y. Rangers  
208 48 Tyler Seguin C Boston #2 overall pick- could be his breakout season

214 49 Victor Hedman D Tampa Bay  
215 50 Travis Zajac C New Jersey

219 48 Wayne Simmonds RW Philadelphia
