Quarterbacks STUDS Marc Bulger - Rams are 3-1 and will see the Packers D this week. Peyton Manning - STUD gets to face the Tennessee Titans at home. START Donovan McNabb - McNabb went off on MNF, but Dallas isn't the Pack. Drew Bledsoe - Facing a beat up Philly secondary. Rex Grossman - We're eating some crow...Grossman may be better than we thought and he's going to throw on Bills. Eli Manning - Rested and ready with receiving weapons. Tom Brady - Brady tore up Cincy...he'll repeat against the Phins. Jon Kitna - He's getting it done in Mike Martz' offense...due to get a win soon. Byron Leftwich - Still healthy and may be learning how to control his cannon. Vince Young - Only a START if desperate since Indy will blow the Titans out early and give Young plenty of garbage time. Mark Brunell - Feast or famine QB that feasted on Jax last week. Jake Delhomme - He'll put up STUD numbers against the Browns. Chad Pennington - He's had 4 good weeks and is legit. BENCH Daunte Culpepper - He may not even start this week...he's just not healthy. Jake Plummer - Ravens D is for real and Plummer is not. Brett Favre - Brett and his whole team are banged up. Ben Roethlisberger - No reason to start him against Chargers D. Charlie Frye - Find another option. J.P. Losman - Bears will maul him. Aaron Brooks - Probably the last time we ever mention him... Andrew Walter gets to spend time on his back instead. Matt Leinart - Give him a week or two before you start him. Kurt Warner - He's done. Running Backs STUDS Joseph Addai - HUGE play this week. Laurence Maroney - The kid has graduated to STUD. Steven Jackson - League leader in yards just needs a couple TDs. LaDainian Tomlinson - Still a STUD even though the Steelers D is a threat. Thomas Jones - How does this guy not have better stats? Larry Johnson - Larry's got it going. START Kevin Jones - Better each week. Maurice Jones-Drew - He'll be even better this week. Chester Taylor - Comeback effort against the Lions. Deuce McAllister - He gets most of the carries and is goal-line back. Tiki Barber - Can you make that a rushing/receiving combo please? Clinton Portis - Looked 100% against a tough Jags run D and gets a better matchup this week. LaMont Jordan - Finally a game worth starting him. Frank Gore - I like him against the Raiders. Julius Jones - He'll have better games, but start him if on your roster. DeShaun Foster - He should bust out against the Brownies. BENCH Brian Westbrook - He's on our bench until he proves he's healthy. Tatum Bell - Can't run on the Ravens D. Willie Parker - San Diego D is getting it done. Ahman Green - Who knows whether he'll play...and he's off a step. Tennessee Titans RBs - Eenie, meenie, miny, moe. Willis McGahee - Playing the Bears...bench him. New York Jets RBs - See Tennessee. Receivers STUDS Marvin Harrison - Tied for league lead in receptions and yards with the Titans coming to town. Steve Smith - Ready for a huge game at home against Cleveland. Reggie Wayne - He'll destroy Tennessee's secondary at home. Roy Williams - Williams showed up against Rams and is a would be STUD in any offense...especially with Mike Martz running the show. Torry Holt - Going to Green Bay and will build upon last week. START Laveranues Coles - Leading the league with Harrison in receptions and yards...no reason he should slow down. Larry Fitzgerald - Demoted until Leinart resurrects him back to STUD status. Terrell Owens - He's been waiting for this game for over a year and Philly's secondary is ailing. Terry Glenn - Focus will be on T.O. Anquan Boldin - He and Fitz haven't had any consistence at the QB position this year...we'll see what Leinart does this week. Randy Moss - He gets one chance with an easy opponent...he either does it here or is done unless traded. Marques Colston - Brees is helping make this kid a star. Doug Gabriel - Emerging as Brady's fav. Plaxico Burress - Close to a STUD this week against Skins. Drew Bennett - Been capitalizing in garbage time and he'll get plenty this week. Keyshawn Johnson - Enough stats to go around against Browns. Kellen Winslow Jr. - Missing practices, but okay start if he plays. Todd Heap - Questionable, see Winslow and check closer to gametime. BENCH Donte Stallworth - His hammy's been a letdown the last two weeks and he probably won't play against the Boys. Lee Evans - Playing da Bears. Donald Driver - Move to START if he heals (against porous Rams D), but banged up and may not play. San Diego WRs - Another tough week for SD with Pitt in town. Javon Walker - Ravens will attack Plummer like vultures...Walker will have tough go of it. BYE WEEK 4 - Falcons, Bengals, Seahawks, Texans _________________________________________________________________ send your fantasy questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
