Carolina at Chicago 1:00 PM

It is hard to expect a good game from Cam Newton after last week and against Chicago’s defense. If there is a RB on the Panthers roster to start, it would be Jonathan Stewart especially in PPR leagues. Steve Smith is iffy but Greg Olsen is a definite play. For Chicago, I am not scared of Jay Cutler this week. Matt Forte is automatic and Johnny Knox could be a good sleeper. The Bears Defense is a good start as well.

Buffalo at Cincinnati 1:00 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick and Fred Jackson are suddenly every week plays. Steve Johnson and David Nelson will also be productive. Scott Chandler is a good TE play for the Bills as well. For Cincinnati, AJ Green and Jermaine Gresham are the only two that I would touch.

Tennessee at Cleveland 1:00 PM

Matt Hasselbeck has averaged over 300 yards per game this year and is a decent start along with Nate Washington in the passing game. Who knows what is up with Chris Johnson but I have a feeling that this is the week he breaks out. Jared Cook is an OK TE play. For the Browns there is nobody I really trust – Peyton Hillis and Be Watson are just OK this week.

Detroit at Dallas 1:00 PM

You have to start Matt Stafford along with Calvin Johnson, Brandon Pettigrew and even Jahvid Best in PPR leagues. For Dallas, Tony Romo could be productive in a shootout along with Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. I still don’t trust Felix Jones despite a good game on Monday night.

Minnesota at Kansas City 1:00 PM

For Minnesota, Adrian Peterson is automatic and Percy Harvin is due for a big game. Start Harvin based on his potential this week. I am benching everyone on the Chiefs except for Dwayne Bowe.

Washington at St. Louis 1:00 PM

Rex Grossman is a good start here along with Tim Hightower, Fred Davis and Santana Moss. The Rams are a scary team to rely on in Fantasy right now – Danario Alexander and perhaps Mike Sims-Walker in PPR leagues are about all I trust unless of course Steven Jackson is completely healthy.

San Francisco at Philadelphia 1:00 PM

The 49ers are in for a long game. About the only one I trust is Vernon Davis. For Philadelphia, Mike Vick is good to go, LeSean McCoy will have another strong game, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin should also be productive.

New Orleans at Jacksonville 1:00 PM

Never bench Brees! His receivers are a crap shoot as usual. Lance Moore is the best bet to have a good game – not sold on Meachem or Henderson. Jimmy Graham is also a good start for the Saints. The runners could also be started – Ingram will churn out rushing yards and Sproles will get his share of catches out of the backfield. For the Jags, Maurice Jones-Drew will see a lot of work and is automatic with Mike Thomas being the only other Jag that I would consider – as a flex of WR3 only.

Pittsburgh at Houston 1:00 PM

My guess is that this is a shootout. Big Ben gets the start along with Mike Wallace in this one. Mendenhall is on my bench until further notice. Antonio Brown could be considered as an OK flex. Houston should be OK despite playing a tough Pittsburgh defense. Arian Foster should be back and warrants a start along with Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels. Matt Schaub will just be OK this week. [ad-8469823]

NY Giants at Arizona 4:05 PM

The Giants looked good last week and I like them to continue that trend this week. Start Eli Manning, Ahmad Bradshaw, Hakeem Nicks and a returning Mario Manningham. If Manningham can`t go, Victor Cruz is a good start. I expect a bounce back game from Kevin Kolb against a banged up Giants secondary – Larry Fitzgerald will be huge. Beanie Wells should return this week and is a decent play as well.

Atlanta at Seattle 4:05 PM

The Falcons are angry. You have to start Matt Ryan and Roddy White this week but be wary of Michael Turner against Seattle`s good run defense, You may have to start him regardless. Tony Gonzalez and Julio Jones are also decent starts this week. For Seattle, Sidney Rice is the only player that I would touch!

Denver at Green Bay 4:15 PM

Shootout time! The Broncos are going to have to throw a ton in this game. I actually like Kyle Orton this week along with Brandon Lloyd. Eric Decker is a decent sneaky flex play as well. Aaron Rodgers, Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley are automatic starts this week. Jordy Nelson is an OK flex as well. As for the Packers running game, who knows!

New England at Oakland 4:15 PM

Brady, Welker and Gronkowski are studs obviously. Take a look at Deion Branch this week too after a brutal Week 3. I still don`t trust any of the Pats running backs. For Oakland, Jason Campbell could be an OK sleeper this week believe it or not. Darren McFadden is as automatic as they come and Denaruis Moore has entered flex consideration!

Miami at San Diego 4:15 PM

For the Fins, Daniel Thomas and Brandon Marshall are the only considerations. Philip Rivers is banged up for the Chargers but is unbenchable along with Vincent Jackson. Take a shot on Ryan Matthews here as well – he has looked good and has the confidence of his coaches,

NY Jets at Baltimore 8:20 PM

I have a feeling about Mark Sanchez this week – he could be an OK play! Santonio Holmes is a decent start as is Dustin Keller and even Plaxico Burress who has a chance to score again. I am staying away from Shonn Green and LT this week. For the Ravens, Joe Flacco warrants a start based on last week, Ray Rice is automatic and Anquan Boldin could be productive as well. Start Ed Dickson as an OK TE option as well.

Indianapolis at Tampa Bay 8:30 PM

There is absolutely nobody I trust on the Colts! For Tampa Bay, Josh Freeman is just an OK start while LeGarrette Blount could have a huge game. Kellen Winslow and Mike Williams have simply been OK this season. I expect the same to continue Monday night.

  1. Would you start torrey smith over anquan bolden since bolden might be out on revis island all day???

  2. Fowlertime,

    Tough question – My rule is that any non-elite WR matched up against Revis is an automatic bench.
