Bulger @ San Diego

The Chargers have (or had until they lost two going on three starters) a great front 7, but their secondary's average. Bulger's having the best year of his career throwing to the best wideout in football (no offense Marvin), who's nickname is "Big Game". If you're planning on laying money on the STL-SD Game I'd take the "over".

as stated before me... SD has had some injuries in their front 7... The DBs are very average.. and lets not over look the distraction w/ the Merriam thing...

I like Both QBs to but up 250/2 TDs.. should one of the better games tomorrow..

the chargers obviously have one of the best D's in the league, but it really depends on who your backkup is, bulger is almost always a very strong fantasy option, but if you have someone that you think may be better, than you may want to take a shot with that cause as I said, SD has a very very good defense, but merriman may be a distraction.

I would start Grossman over every played not named Donovan McNabb this week. And that includes Peyton Manning. This is coming from a Niner's fan.

Niner's are a horrible team on the road. And they have the worst defensive backfield in the league no matter where the game is played. Chalk Berrian up for at least one TD, maybe two. And Clark and/or Muhammad should score as well.

This is either gonna be a bloodbath or a shootout. Either way Grossman is good for 300/3 IMO.

Man you are way off on this one. I can almost guarantee you that this is going to be a high scoring game. It's NFC/AFC, always high scoring. The O's will have the advantage in this one, especially St. Louis since they are coming off a bye. Check the line on this one.

SD is favored by 9, and the over/under is like 43. Obviously Vegas thinks SD is going to roll offensively in this one. EVen if St. Louis gets soundly beaten, coming from behind Bulger is likely to pass 40+ times. Knowing Bulger and St. Louis track record, that could easily go for 300+ with a couple scores.

I have Bulger and Grossman as well and was thinking Grossman except that SF is not going to score on the Chi D so Chicago is not going to have to throw the ball much. Look for Chicago to get a couple of Def TD's and then run run run the ball for the rest of the day.

Grossman = 200 yds and 1 td this week because they are not going to need him to do more than that.

On the otherhand, Rams v. SD is going to be a shoot out. SD D is banged up and the SD O is very strong vs. a not so good Rams D. Spells lots of points to me.

If you have Bulger, start him. Plain and simple. Grass, dirt, outdoor, indoor, snowing, whatever. The only exception to this rule is if your other option is named McNabb or Manning.

Has anyone even seen SD's secondary (or lack thereof)? Trust me, as a huge SD fan, I'm expecting this game to be a shootout. With Phillips and Olshansky out, SD's defense will have little to no pass rush. STL is going to go after SD's secondary right off the bat. The last time these two teams matched up, Bulger threw for over 400 yds and 4 TD's (granted, different teams back then, but STL still has most of these guys in place). I'm crossing my fingers that the Bolts can keep this one close, but with the way Shotty's been calling plays, you never know what kind of offense you're going to get. I think Bulger is a decent start this week.

Stats DO have a purpose! Nice kensat!

I was pleasantly surprised by the SD defense this game. Cromartie did a great job of covering Holt and Merriman was all over the place. Bulger and Bruce got me enough garbage time points, but SD still won...can't ask for more than that, although I hate it when Fantasy interferes with cheering for your home team!
