Thu, 08 Sep 2011 New Orleans at Green Bay 8:30 PM

I didn’t have to tell you to start Drew Brees, Aaron Rogers, Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley did I? Other intriguing prospect is Jimmy Graham. I am wary of Marques Colston and Lance Moore in this one – both are injured and not at 100%. Ryan Grant is also a risk – he and James Starks will be splitting carries.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Atlanta at Chicago 1:00 PM

I would start all Falcons – Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, Roddy White and even Julio Jones. I am scared as hell of any Bears.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Cincinnati at Cleveland 1:00 PM

Peyton Hillis – maybe! That`s about it.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Buffalo at Kansas City 1:00 PM

The only players to start here are Steve Johnson and Jamaal Charles. Seriously

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Philadelphia at St. Louis 1:00 PM

Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson and the Eagles Defense are obvious. I would be very wary of any Ram – Philadelphia`s defense will be looking to make a statement on Sunday.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Detroit at Tampa Bay 1:00 PM

For the Lions, it is imperative that you start Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson in this game. Stafford looked great in the preseason and is ready to rumble. I wouldn’t hesitate on LeGarrette Blount, Mike Williams, Kellen Winslow and Jahvid Best. Josh Freeman and Brandon Pettigrew are also decent starts believe it or not. I think there is going to be some scoring in this one.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Tennessee at Jacksonville 1:00 PM

The two running backs will dominate this game – Chris Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew are studs. Kenny Britt is a risk but could break out.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Pittsburgh at Baltimore 1:00 PM

For Pittsburgh Ben Roethlisberger, Mike Wallace and the Defense are sure-fire starts and Rashard Mendenhall is an OK start based on the touches he will receive. I am not sold on the Ravens passing game but Ray Rice is a definite YES.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Indianapolis at Houston 1:00 PM

I can’ believe that I am saying this but there is only one real Colts option in this game – Dallas Clark. With Kerry Collins running the show the Colts will be in tough. For the Texans, Arian Foster is a tiny bit of a gamble but Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels are good to go. [ad-8469823]

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Carolina at Arizona 4:15 PM

Believe it or not, I think there is some plays in this game. DeAngelo Williams is a solid start for the Panthers while Beanie Wells and Larry Fitzgerald will be big for the Cardinals.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Minnesota at San Diego 4:15 PM

For Minnesota Adrian Peterson is the only real play. But for the Chargers, Philip Rivers, Vincent Jackson and Antonio Gates will be monsters. Heck the running tandem of Ryan Matthews and Mike Tolbert are worth a look at flex – there`s bound to be a ton of garbage time in this one.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Seattle at San Francisco 4:15 PM

Wow, Seattle is a mess. I would think about starting the Defense in a pinch and if desperate, Marshawn Lynch is an OK play. For San Francisco Frank Gore and Vernon Davis will have big games. Braylon Edwards isn`t a bad option either.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 NY Giants at Washington 4:15 PM

For the Giants start Ahmad Bradshaw, Hakeem Nicks and even Mario Manningham, Brandon Jacobs is an OK flex. For Washington Tim Hightower looks solid believe it or not and Santana Moss could be OK.

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 Dallas at NY Jets 8:20 PM

It is tough to start any of the Dallas passing game with Darrelle Revis and company on the other side of the ball. Felix Jones should be OK and Jason Witten is as reliable as they come. For New York Shonne Greene and Santonio Holmes are my picks to have good games. Both defenses are good starts in this game as well.

Mon, 12 Sep 2011 New England at Miami 7:00 PM

Brady, Welker, and the Tight End duo of Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski are all good starts this week. I am not going with Ochocinco. For Miami, I would not hesitate to use Brandon Marshall but that is about it.

Mon, 12 Sep 2011 Oakland at Denver 10:15 PM

Darren McFadden is the only reliable Raider – period! The Broncos could get good games from Knowshon Moreno and Brandon Lloyd.
