Dolphins QB Chad Henne was one of the position's top fantasy sleepers heading into 2010, and he finally has begun to show why the past few weeks.

After struggling mightily in the first two games of the season, Henne has come on strong since, averaging an impressive 299 yards and two TDs over his past three outings. Yes, he has thrown five interceptions during this span, but the Miami signalcaller is finally beginning to play like he did toward the end of '09.

One of the biggest reasons for that has been the play of WR Brandon Marshall, whom the Dolphins acquired to give them an impact player in the passing game. During the same three-game span, Marshall has been terrific, catching 25 passes for 343 yards and a score. A lock for 100 catches during his days in Denver, the skilled wideout is on pace for a career-high 118 this season despite playing in a run-first offense.

As for Henne, owners shouldn't be afraid to deploy him in good matchups moving forward. His inconsistency can be maddening at times and you'll have to put up with frequent interceptions, but his final tallies are more than respectable most of the time. Now that he has discovered another playmaker in Davone Bess, he should have quite a few more big outings this season.
