This is certainly the way I view it. Not necessarily the tough calls that most people make. It's usually the obvious, but then again they're going for best matchup period regardless of if people are going to start them or not.
I kind of enjoy their "Lineup Rankings" a little more. It interests me to see how the players are stacked up. Those are far from perfect too I assume (they still have Clinton Portis ranked #10), but it does give you the ranking of the defense for that particular week and matches them based on the likely gameplan and their offensive abilities (O-line, playcalls, etc).
Sportsline is generally a bad place for advice but does a fair job of reporting the indisputable info which is why I check there. The Cafe's patrons usually do the best job of dissecting a players abilities.
