Quarterbacks STUDS Peyton Manning - Peyton owns the spot at the top of the QB STUD list. Tom Brady - Brady will destroy Buffalo at will. Carson Palmer - Anyone who watched Palmer rip apart Green Bay knows he's ready. Kurt Warner - How can you rank Fitz and Boldin in the top ten and not make Warner a STUD against San Fran? START Donovan McNabb - McNabb is loving the fact that he's facing this D in week 1. Eli Manning - Eli's been preparing the entire off-season to beat big brother. Jon Kitna - Mike Martz and Roy Williams. Jake Delhomme - Jake loves to pick on the Falcons and he'll do it with or without Smith. Jake Plummer - Javon Walker will be Plummer's new best friend. Marc Bulger - More focus on the running game will actually help Bulger. Matt Hasselbeck - DJax is ready to catch some balls...and H-beck is playing Detroit. Drew Bledsoe - T.O. is 100% with something to prove...he'll help Drew. BENCH Aaron Brooks - He'll force passes all game, but maybe Moss catches one or two. Brett Favre - Green Bay is looking bad and has to face the Bears in week 1. Chris Simms - Simms has to show he can utilize his receivers before he gets off our bench. David Carr - Has Carr learned to throw while on his back? Running Backs STUDS DeShaun Foster - He's the real deal in Carolina provided he stays upright. LaDainian Tomlinson - LT2 will be a one-man gang in SD. Shaun Alexander - If he gets half of his TDs from last year, he's still in the top 3. Larry Johnson - You'll need a calculator for his stats. Edgerrin James - He's playing the Niners and will get 25 touches. Corey Dillon - Maroney's no threat this week and he's playing the Bills. Thomas Jones - TJ will destroy the Pack...why did the Bears draft Benson? Rudi Johnson - He'll dominate after his team gets the lead. Steven Jackson - This will be his monster breakout year. START Mike Bell/Tatum Bell - Only if you know the starter before gametime. Tiki Barber - Gets huge yards, but TDs may dwindle with Jacobs. Brian Westbrook - Threat on ground and through the air. Reuben Droughns - Should steamroll over Saints D. LaMont Jordan - Risky with SD's run D, but he's still a START. Kevin Jones - Wide open system should really help KJ. Deuce McAllister - No reason to forget about the Deuce just yet. Willis McGahee - Solid preseason enough to make him a START. BENCH Tennessee Titans RBs - Merry-go-round in unproven offense. New York Jets RBs - See Tennessee. Jamal Lewis - Banged up and may not play. Clinton Portis - Won't play in week 1. Ahman Green - Lost a step and playing the Bears in week 1. Wide Receivers STUDS Chad Johnson - He'll dance in the zone all year. Marvin Harrison - All he does is catch TDs from Peyton. Reggie Wayne - Wayne and Harrison are 1a and 1b. Larry Fitzgerald - Stud until further notice. Anquan Boldin - He and Fitz are like Harrison and Wayne. Terrell Owens - Dallas could have double the ticket prices for the show he'll put on. Javon Walker - Leaping up to STUD level from what we've seen in preseason. Roy Williams - Extremely talented and ready to go off in Martz' system. START Drew Bennett - Bennett is better when Volek fires to him. Lee Evans - Bills will have to throw alot once they're down. Santana Moss - Viking D can't match-up...it's up to Brunell to get him the rock. Randy Moss - Off the STUD section until Brooks proves he can connect. Donte Stallworth - He'll benefit from the change of scenery. Troy Williamson - Lightning fast and emerging as a solid #1. Todd Heap - I know, he's a TE...but McNair will him in the chest until he's sore. Torry Holt - If he weren't banged up, he'd be a STUD. Plaxico Burress - Nice big target for Manning. Matt Jones - Big target that is ready to bust out. BENCH T.J. Houshmandzadeh - It doesn't look like he'll play this week. Steve Smith - Not looking good for Smith playing...DeAngelo Hall may eat him up if he does. New York Jets WRs - Benched until further notice. ___________________________________________________________ send your fantasy questions to: email@example.com
