QB Donovan McNabb, despite perception, has improved the last two weeks with a 60.6 completion percentage, 219.5 yards and 0.5 TDs per game in that time. It's nothing to write home about but he's not regressing.

RB Adrian Peterson is facing a Chiefs defense allowing 171 offensive yards (rushing + receiving) against opposing backs. Don't look for AP's injured calf to slow him down.

WR Percy Harvin is doing just as much damage as a running back (8-74-0) as a receiver (12-130-0). As long as he's a dual threat for yardage, he'll always warrant a starting spot on your fantasy roster.

Keep an eye on WR Michael Jenkins as he saw 11 targets last week and if you can believe it, is the team's leading receiver in all categories. He's averaging 5.7 targets for five receptions, 47.7 yards and 0.33 TDs per game. The Chiefs are allowing 161.3 receiving yards and 1.33 TDs per game to the position.

Despite one TD last week, Visanthe Shiancoe (1-8-1) only saw two targets last week compared with rookie Kyle Rudolph's (3-39-0) three targets. Keep an eye to see if Rudolph begins to gain a fantasy edge over Shiancoe.
