Ok, I can't believe I'm actually considering starting Schaub over Peyton, but Schaub has a great matchup against ARI. Peyton's matchup is good, too, but against a divison rival on the road (TEN). TEN's been pretty porous, but the Colts could get up big early and limit Peyton's fantasy points.
Am I crazy? Help!
WHIR...leave a link...

Agree with all the sentiments thus far--Schaub may have a great day (and he's my starter, so I'm hoping he does), but I really don't know that it'll outpace Peyton much, if at all. I mean, look at last week's game...Indy was up and he was STILL getting some good points towards the end.
I also agree that you should consider trading Schaub. You could probably get a decent bye-week fill-in for Manning along with a strong WR2/RB2, if not more, depending on what you offer. Especially if the recipient is desperate for a good QB.
Thanks for the help with mine.

I really like Schaub's matchup this week, but it's almost impossible to sit Peyton. Gotta go with the hottest arm in the league. Besides, if Garrard can tear up the Titans, think about what Peyton can do.
