By Week 10 of a fantasy football season it might seem more difficult to find sneaky free-agent pickups, but I hearken back to around this time seven years ago. Way back in 2004, the starting quarterback for the Tennessee Titans was Steve McNair, until an injury shortened his season. That's when backup quarterback Billy Volek and ordinary wide receiver Drew Bennett got started. From Weeks 12-14, the combination was lethal; Volek threw 11 touchdown passes and averaged 395 passing yards in that stretch, while Bennett caught eight touchdowns passes and averaged 172 receiving yards. You thought Denarius Moore was good Thursday night? Bennett was unreal for three weeks.
