TEN vs STL

STL vs TEN

KC vs DEN

Seattle vs ARI

MIN vs NO

DEN vs KC



Seattle v. Arizona seems like the obvious play, but I'm a little wary of what might happen if Shipp establishes a running game....

The sneaky pick would be TEN v. St. Louis... St. Louis has given up the 2nd most sacks in the league (11).... Bulger has ZERO pass protection.... If San Fran can do what they did to him, it's not out of the realm of possibility that Tennessee might be able to do something similar.... Look for Tennessee to give up 24+ points, but they could also have 6 sacks... QB pressure leads to turnovers.... Now, I'm not saying Tennessee is the stud play of the week, here, but they could do surprisingly well against one of the worst pass protecting lines in football....[/quote]

i just dropped cincy D for carolina vs miami. was i being an idiot in doing so? something i noticed is that cincy's D-line hasnt really been tested. i think it might be the only weak point. and with the kind of DEF chicago has*possibly the best of the year* it'll keep them in it so they can establish a running game. so im thinking it might be a low scoring affair with very lil room for turnovers. am i wrong in thinking carolina was the safer pick? i mean look what they did with the running game against NE and kept brady pretty frustrated. i think they will do the same with frerotte, except with maybe 2-3 picks. thoughts?

I think Carolina is a decent play, but the reason I like Cincy is the fact that I think they can put up points against Chicago.... That offense is as explosive as it gets in the NFL.... If Chicago gets down by 10 points or more, they will have to put the game in Orton's hands, and back off the Thomas Jones one-man-show... I'm not sure I like the rookie's chances of being turnover-free in a shootout....

I also think Cincy's D might be for real.... Keep in mind that Marvin Lewis is a defensive guru....

Depends on the rest of the squad.... If I NEEDED a decent day out of my D to have a shot at winning, I might play Seattle.... If I felt pretty comfortable with the rest of the match-up, and could afford to gamble, I might play Tennessee....

Tennessee is boom or bust..... They could give up 35 points, and record 2 sacks with no turnovers, or they could give Bulger fits, and get to him 6 times, force a fumble, and run it in for a TD....

Tennessee defense scored a TD, blocked a kick, and recorded a safety last week. They're not a good NFL defense, but they can be a productive fantasy defense. Unless St. Louis jumps out to an early 2 or 3 score lead, I think Tennessee is your choice out of these matchups. Only reason to avoid them is if you league heavily weighs points scored/yards allowed.

The first thing I would do is trade Willie Parker while he's hot for a better WR than Burleson..... You don't need Willie with those other backs you have....

I've been thinking about dealing Parker. What caliber WR do you think he would fetch ? CJ, Holt, Wayne, Horn, D Jax ???

CJ might be a stretch unless the owner who has him is in real need of a RB....

Holt is possible if the other guy has decent WR depth....

Wayne is almost a sure thing, but I think you might want to hold off on that one, as starting Harrison and Wayne might be a little questionable if Peyton comes back to Earth, which it looks like he may....

Horn would probably be doable.... Or SHOULD be doable....

D-Jax almost certainly is doable, but I might prefer Steve Smith or Larry Fitz.... If you go that route, look to get an upgrade at QB, as well....


I'd start by looking at the team(s) in my league who are in the most trouble at RB.... Try looking at the Jamal Lewis or Kevin Jones owner... They're both struggling, and the owners might feel desperate.... Anyways, the owners with the worst RB situation are likely to give you the best deal....
