RB Peyton Hillis returns to his starting role this week but faces a tough task as he has lost 10-12 pounds from strep throat and possibly the flu. Look for him to cede touches to Montario Hardesty. … Hardesty will see an increase in playing time. The Titans are allowing 125 offensive yards and one total TD per game to the position. Hardesty is not a receiver, but saw four targets last week. If the opportunity presents itself he could get lucky and provide fantasy points through the air.

Despite scoring a TD in Week Three, WR Joshua Cribbs is only averaging 4.5 targets and does not warrant a fantasy roster spot. Do keep an eye on his production moving forward.

The Browns started the Miami game in a three-WR set and Brian Robiskie was not part of the trio. A one-time starter, Robiskie has only four targets and is still without a reception. He has no fantasy value.

The TE fantasy frustration continues with the Browns' Evan Moore and Benjamin Watson. Last week, Moore had three targets (2-19-0) and Watson had 10 (5-64-0) as they continue to cancel each other out. Expect inconsistency all season.
