Quarterbacks STUDS Donovan McNabb - Huge numbers even when he loses. Peyton Manning - Peyton will need to win this one through the air. Eli Manning - Seems to be learning from Bro...Papa must be proud. START Philip Rivers - He and Bulger may be trading TDs all day. Rex Grossman - Grossman will throw it no matter what and SF will allow him some nice numbers. Marc Bulger - SD defense is tougher against the run...Bulger will air it out. David Carr - Definitely worth a go this week against Titans. Drew Brees - This kid just keeps impressing with his ability. Vince Young - Playing Texans...start him if in a pinch. Carson Palmer - Needs this game against the Falcons...we're still waiting until STUD Carson Palmer reappears. Michael Vick - He'll put a hundred rushing yards on this defense. David Garrard - Has the nod from Del Rio and may be decent injury or bye week replacement. Brett Favre - Will throw it 40 times on the Cards. Matt Leinart - Should recover from last week's pathetic outing and torch GBs horrible secondary. Ben Roethlisberger - Beat up Steeler is likely playing...if up for the test, he'll light up Oakland. Chad Pennington - "Touchdown Coles!" will be like a water torture to Browns fans. BENCH Jake Plummer - Mountain man has only 4 TDs on the year with 7 INTs and a passer rating of 60.4. Byron Leftwich - He's out. Damon Huard - He's probably out...and don't play Brodie Croyle. Matt Hasselbeck - Out for at least 3 weeks. Alex Smith - Bears are licking their chops. Andrew Walter - Again...should be no where near your roster. Seneca Wallace - Are you kidding? Charlie Frye - Jets D is ranked 30, but Chuck needs to stay on the waiver wire. Running Backs STUDS LaDainian Tomlinson - You'll need a calculator for his stats. Larry Johnson - KC will have Larry running like Forrest Gump against Seahawks. Tatum Bell - STUD this week against Colts awful run D. Brian Westbrook - He's fantasy gold when he plays...and he's playing. Edgerrin James - Last chance for a STUD week...come on Edge. Thomas Jones/Cedric Benson - Take your pick...the line on this game is 16 and a half. START Joseph Addai - Addai is Indy's best RB bet, but will be limited. Travis Henry - Henry has had 50+ carries over last two weeks. Rudi Johnson - Rudi needs to get it going at home. Steven Jackson - Just too good to let SD scare him out of stats. Leon Washington - This kid is looking good...real good. Wali Lundy - Playing the Titans and worth a shot this week. Cadillac Williams - He'll do okay, but not great against Giants. Tiki Barber - BIG yards again, but certainly not a scoring machine. Warrick Dunn - Hey Warrick...the Bengals run D is awful! Willie Parker - Could be a monster game for Fast Willie. Julius Jones - Another spotlight game for Julius. BENCH Frank Gore - Playing da Bears. Deuce McAllister/Reggie Bush - Baltimore stuffs them both. LaMont Jordan - Steelers will sit him down. Receivers STUDS Steve Smith - He'll shine on SNF against Boys. Andre Johnson - Andre's leading the league and facing Titans this week...he'll have a monster game this week. Torry Holt - Bulger will look for him all day against Chargers. Bernard Berrian/Muhsin Muhammad - Grossman can't wait to redeem himself. Anquan Boldin - Pack is ranked 32nd and Boldin is a STUD. START T.J. Houshmandzadeh - Chad has been a decoy for Housh this year. Laveranues Coles - Top 4 in NFL receiving stats and playing the Brownies this week. Chad Johnson - Where art thou Chad Johnson?...I see your comments on opposing locker room boards, but not on the field. Javon Walker - Walker has to put up against Colts. Darrell Jackson - Only fantasy play for Seahawks this week. Marvin Harrison - Colts must pass against Broncos. Reggie Wayne - See Marvin. Bryant Johnson - Nice fill-in for Fitzgerald against Pack. Randy Moss - Moss is too good not to start. Todd Heap - Redzone sure-thing. Braylon Edwards - Maybe with a new coordinator he'll do okay. Drew Bennett - Underrated and playing Texans this week. Hines Ward - Ward will again be the man this week. Donald Driver - Nice game for Driver as Farve wings it all day. Antonio Gates - Plan for a huge game for Gates against Rams. Plaxico Burress - Plax is the Big-Play Man! BENCH Donte Stallworth - Looking now like a game-time decision...monitor and start if he's up to the challenge. SF Wide Receivers - No way against this D. Eddie Kennison - Not with the quarterback situation this week. Larry Fitzgerald - Still out. Atlanta Wide Receivers - Who, what, when? BYE WEEK 8 - Bills, Dolphins, Lions, Redskins _________________________________________________________________ send your fantasy questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
