Miami Offensive Cast

Tyler Thigpen (QB Week 12 Ranking: Not ranked)

2010 Season: 23/41 for 266 yards and one TD

Chad Henne has been cleared to play, so toss Thigpen back in the garbage heap where you found him.


Chad Henne (QB Week 12 Ranking: Not ranked)

2010 Season: 195/305 for 2,140 yards and nine TDs

Henne is back and will resume his role as the starter this week.  However, without Brandon Marshall on the field, he’s hardly worth your time against a pretty good Oakland secondary.


Ronnie Brown (RB Week 12 Ranking: No. 32)

2010 Season: 116 carries for 454 yards and three TDs || 21 receptions for 139 yards

Ronnie has barely been worth using at all this year, but if you’re looking for one game to show him the field, this might be the one.  The Raiders can be beat on the ground, and with the Dolphins sans Brandon Marshall, Brown could actually get enough work to do some damage.


Ricky Williams (RB Week 12 Ranking: Not ranked)

2010 Season: 92 carries for 401 yards and one TD || 9 receptions for 64 yards and one TD

Ricky still isn’t getting enough love in this offense to start on your fantasy team this year.  Until Ronnie Brown goes down, stash him.
