Anquan Boldin, WR, Ravens

Boldin had an enormous stat line against the Browns, catching eight passes for 142 yards with three touchdowns in a 24-17 win. He scored on passes of 8, 12 and 27 yards from Joe Flacco. Boldin, who is on pace for 107 receptions and better than 1,500 yards, finished with an impressive 31.96 fantasy points on NFL.com. He has a tough matchup next week against the Steelers, but Boldin is still hard to bench in all fantasy leagues.

Michael Vick, QB, Eagles

Vick is on his way to being the fantasy waiver-wire jewel of the season. He made the Jaguars look like kittens in Week 3, posting 291 passing yards, 30 rushing yards and a total of four touchdowns in a 28-3 win. His scores came on passes of 61, 16 and 45 yards and a run of 17 yards. Vick, now one of the highest-scoring players in fantasy land, finished with 32.64 points. He should now be considered one of the elite fantasy quarterbacks while he's on such an enormous hot streak.

Adrian Peterson, RB, Vikings

With the Vikings' passing game struggling, Peterson is being called on to shoulder the load on offense. He did just that against the Lions, rushing for 160 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-10 win. Peterson, who also caught five passes for 30 yards, finished with a total of 31 fantasy points in the contest. He'll get a much-needed rest in Week 4, as the Vikings go on a bye. One thing to monitor if you own Peterson is his workload - he's currently on pace to surpass the dreaded 370 carries on the season.

Austin Collie, WR, Colts

Collie, a Week 3 sleeper on NFL.com, was even better than advertised against the Broncos. With Pierre Garcon out of action and CB Champ Bailey covering Reggie Wayne, Collie was a popular option for Peyton Manning. He finished with 12 catches, 171 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-13 win. Collie's two scores came on catches of 5 and 23 yards. Believe it or not, Collie has now scored more fantasy points than any other wide receiver.

Lance Moore, WR, Saints

Moore had been off the fantasy radar since 2008, but he's back in the mix after a huge performance against the Falcons. He caught six passes for 149 yards and scored two touchdowns (80, 16 yards) in a 27-24 overtime loss. Moore, who scored 26.90 fantasy points, was clearly a bigger part of the game plan with Reggie Bush out of action. He'll be a popular name on the waiver wire in a lot of fantasy leagues for Week 4.
