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'd deal Edge myself - you have a much better chance of getting CJ or even TO or Moss with Edge on the block - and FWP is not that much of a downgrade (if at all) from Edge at this point...

I'm not sure that is a determination we can make considering A) Pittsburgh has not faced a real defense, yet... And B) we don't know how things will pan out in Pittsburgh once Staley and Bettis are fully healthy.... It's entirely possible that Staley could see 10 carries a game and Bettis could get ALL the goal line work... In that circumstance, I'm not sure that Parker is any better a play than Warrick Dunn, and I think most people would agree that Dunn is a pretty serious downgrade from Edge....

It's probably been stated already, but I just can't accept that the Pats are the absolute worst defense to start this week, their opponent notwithstanding.

And yet I understand that a statisctical analysis doesn't leave room for this sort of gut reaction. But what about last season's stats? Shouldn't they figure into this equation? I'm sure they do, but to what extent?

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....


I have a hard time seeing Cincy light up Chicago's defense. Chicago has one of the best, if not the best, secondary in the NFL at this point IMO. They have decent players up front and playmakers all over the field that can create turnovers. Carson Palmer is still throwing an interception every game, and I think Chicago is a team that can make him pay for it.

Keep in mind, it's only week 3 of the season, and IMO the Cincy games against Cleveland :-t and Minnesota :-P say more about those teams than Cincinnati... A big game against Chicago will make me a believer, but I think we'll see in this contest that Palmer is not as good as his first 2 games make him appear to be. Sure, I see Cincy winning this game, but it's more on the back of Rudi Johnson than it is on Carson Palmer's arm.

Barring another 70+ yard TD, 2 plays into the game, I think Palmer is gonna have a long day.

Whatchu got there is one helluvan Italian sub (despite the fact that you're using French Bread).... In my experience, the best play given all of the ingredients at hand is 4 slices of provolone on a 6 inch, or 8 slices for a footlong.... Another good play might be some fresh mozzarella.... Match-ups I would avoid would be Feta, Blue Cheese, Gouda, and Brie....

Good luck....

I picked up TEN yesterday and now someone dropped the Bengals D/st this morning. Do I pick up CIN or stick with TEN ?
Or is it a crapshoot either way ?

Any chance theres a sleeper in this pile of crap ???

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....


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.

Risky play, either way, but I would play Cincy... Orton will have to air it out in order to keep up if Cincy gets rolling (which I think they will)....
