Start 'Em: Week 5

- TONY ROMO at Kansas City: If the dude can't get his act together against this sorry defense, there might not be much hope for him as a viable fantasy QB the rest of the year. I'm expecting a big game with his back to the wall.

- TIM HIGHTOWER vs. Houston: It was an up-and-down first three weeks of the season for Hightower as he alternated bad and good games on the ground. I'm willing to bet it's a good week this Sunday against the Texans, who are allowing 165 rushing yards a game and have allowed a league-high eight ballcarriers to run across the goal line.

- HINES WARD vs. Detroit: He's had more catches than teammate Santonio Holmes in each of the past few weeks and has a good chance to score his first TD of the season this week against a Lions secondary that's allowed the most scores through the air.


-Clinton Portis had his best game of the season (25 carries, 98 yards) against the Bucs.

- Brett Favre had his best game of the season (271 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs) against the Packers.

- Ahmad Bradshaw had his second-best game of the year (12 carries, 64 yards) against the Chiefs.
