Long a standout returner, Leon Washington was released in 2013 and looked to be on his way out before catching on with Tennessee where he ended up with the 4th best yards per kick return in the NFL. The combination of Leon Washington, Dexter McCluster, and Marc Mariani make Tennessee's special teams a deep and elite unit.

Week 8: vs Houston Texans

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. With Shonn Greene shelved due to a balky hamstring, Bishop Sankey has received his chance to be a featured running back. At Washington he posted 16/56/0 rushing with one target for zero receptions. Vs. Jacksonville he had 18/61/0 rushing with 1/7/0 receiving. Currently averaging 4.0 yards per carry this season (66/267/1 rushing with 4/39/0 receiving), Sankey is the 50th-ranked fantasy running back in the land - he is the mediocre talent many thought he is, but Sankey is the best back the Titans have with Greene out. Jackie Battle (2/3/0 rushing and 2/13/0 receiving at Washington) and Leon Washington (1/8/0 rushing and 1/9/0 receiving last week) provide change-of-pace options to Sankey. The Texans' rush D averages 118.6 rushing yards allowed per game (20th in the NFL) with four rushing scores given up to date. They held Pittsburgh to 25/76/0 rushing last week, and kept the Colts to 35/93/1 rushing two games back. The defensive front is playing pretty well entering Week 8, despite their middling season average. Advantage, Houston.
