What lesser player is a strong candidate to put up above-average numbers in the fantasy playoffs?
At WR I expect Deion Branch, Davone Bess and Earl Bennett to be surprises for the fantasy playoffs. Each has come on recently in games where the opponent is not a top defense. They should produce better than expected points the next 2 weeks. On the RB side, BenJarvus Green-Ellis continues to excel with NE, but getting the right starter in SF between Brian Westbrook or Anthony Dixon could also prove beneficial.
