This Buc is so money!

WR Joey Galloway

Why go against the flow now? He's definitely a No. 2 WR on your fantasy team this week. I know he's blown up the first two weeks, but I don't think he'll stay that hot. If the Rams continue airing it out that should mean fireworks for Jeff Garcia and Galloway as well.

You may find a hidden treasure with this Buc!

RB Carnell Williams

If you have a bad matchup with your Top 2 running backs, then look at Cadillac this week at home against the Rams. He snapped his streak of 209 carries without a touchdown last week, and I wouldn't expect anything different this week, except maybe only 1 touchdown.

This Buc could have you walking the plank!

WR Ike Hilliard

He's played all right as the Bucs No. 2 wide receiver, but if he plays, he'll be playing on a gimpy ankle. I'd advise not looking for him this week, but TE Alex Smith should fill in for those extra catches if Hilliard can't play.

Postins' take

I completely concur on Smith. Given the way both Michael Clayton and Maurice Stovall have played the first two weeks, I wouldn't expect either one to step up on Sunday if Hilliard cannot go. That's disappointing, because both are talented receivers who have the ability to be a perfect complement to Galloway. Garcia stretched the field with Smith on a 33-yard reception last week, which led to Williams' first score. I think this could be a week where Smith makes more than the one or two catches per game that he's used to averaging.
