Fantasy Fix: Last-minute saviors

Week 10 of the fantasy football season is critical. For many, the playoffs are still a reality and it's time to tweak your team a little. Here are three players making a big difference and who are available in many leagues.

Case Keenum, Houston quarterback

I know Keenum has started only two games in the NFL, but I am a believer. The stats in those two games: four touchdowns and 621 yards passing. Keenum, a big-time passer in college, is duplicating this ability for the Texans. The next four games are favorable, going up against Arizona, Oakland (look at Nick Foles' stats against the Raiders), Jacksonville and New England. If you need a quarterback and Keenum is available, grab him now.

Zac Stacy, St. Louis running back

Stacy is a workhorse back. The real story is he's getting opportunities to carry the ball. In the past three weeks, Stacy has racked up 27, 26 and 17 carries per game. With quarterback Sam Bradford out for the year, Stacy is the Rams' best bet on offense.

Aaron Dobson, New England wide receiver

The NFL is a receiver league—I hope I've convinced you in the past few columns. Because of that, Aaron Dobson is becoming a must-have player. The rookie second-round pick is becoming a favorite for Tom Brady. Dobson's stats are solid: four TDs and 450 yards receiving. He should continue to get better with Rob Gronkowski back and Brady getting more comfortable with him.

    Rejoice! Adele's new album is rumored to arrive this fall

    There's a fire starting in my heart and it's making me realize it's been kind of a while since Adele released an album. Her last full-length "21" dropped in 2011 and I barely remember that year it feels so long ago. But now, there's some good news to fill our recently Adele-less lives and it's...
