A group of relatively unowned players finished among the top scorers from Week 9. But do any of these guys deserve to be owned?TE Brandon Myers, Oakland: Week 9 vs. Tampa Bay: 8 Receptions, 59 Yards, 2 Touchdowns. 5.3 percent owned Rank 1Myers had the 7th most overall points scored in most fantasy leagues after his performance on Sunday. Meyers has been consistent all year. He's currently ranked fifth in receiving yards amongst tight ends (442) and tied fourth in receptions (39).  This was Myers fifth double digit point performance and also the fifth game in which he had caught five balls or more. On Sunday he was targeted a team high 13 times. He's clearly become Carson Palmer's security blanket.
