There's a few players each year that can carry your team if your lucky enough to grab them in time. These guys are usually players that were either waiver wire grabs or are performing far better than their general draft position indicates.
Who's the biggest fantasy surprise this year?
Cedric Bednson - CIN (rejuvenated in CIN)
Brett Favre - MIN (not the same Farve of recent memory)
Miles Austin - DAL (from out of nowhere - almost)
Ray Rice - BAL (becoming an everydown back)
Saints DST - NO (now the #1 scoring DST)
Owen Daniels - HOU (out for season, but who knew he'd lead the TE's until then?)
Steve Smith - NYG (rising to the challenge)
Mike Simms-Walker - JAC (good stats despite bad team)
Brent Celek - PHI (could take over for Daniels)
Broncos DST - DEN (so much made of their preseason OF woes...)
OTHER??? - Explain
Personally I own C-Bens (drafted in 7th) and Austin (waiver grab), but (despite the blog) it won't salvage may team's season.
