Enjoy and be sure to leave a comment!

Cincinnati at Atlanta 1:00 PM

Cincinnati is a tricky team to predict – they are a tad inconsistent. However, Atlanta hasn’t been that great versus the pass so go ahead and start Carson Palmer and Terrell Owens. Chad Ochocinco has become more of a flex but don’t hesitate to use him. Atlanta is good against the run but Cedric Benson should find his way into the end zone this week. For Atlanta, Matt Ryan is a fringe starter as usual but Roddy White and Michael Turner are every week plays. Tony Gonzalez is a decent start as well.

Washington at Chicago 1:00 PM

It is hard to start anyone against the Bears defense but take a shot with Santana Moss. If you are going to beat Chicago, it is through the air. Based on what Matt Hasselbeck did last week against Chicago, Donovan McNabb is worth a start as well. Ryan Torain may hit pay dirt but his numbers won’t be all that great. For Chicago, I would be leery of Jay Cutler even against a poor Washington defense. Johnny Knox is an OK start and the Bears defense is good to go. Matt Forte may see more touches to keep the pressure off of Cutler – he’s a fringe starter as well.

Philadelphia at Tennessee 1:00 PM

Tennessee isn’t all that great against the pass. Kevin Kolb may be a slight risk due to the number of sacks that Tennessee generates but he may be worth a start. Jeremy Maclin and Brent Celek are plays simply because of the absence of DeSean Jackson. LeSean McCoy is a decent flex and should get his share of touches and the Philadelphia defense is also worth a look. For Tennessee, Chris Johnson is the only one I trust – Bo Scaife and Kenny Britt are too inconsistent. Based on the sack and turnover numbers of the Titans defense, they are worth a look too.

Jacksonville at Kansas City 1:00 PM

Nobody knows who is going to start at quarterback for the Jags – best to stay away from their passing game. Marcedes Lewis is just OK. Jones-Drew is an every week play but temper your expectations against a KC defense that will stack the box. For KC both running backs are worth a start as is an emerging Dwayne Bowe. Matt Cassel likely won’t throw a lot – look elsewhere. Tony Moeki is worth a look as is the KC defense.

Pittsburgh at Miami 1:00 PM

Pittsburgh is a scary team right now. Big Ben, Hines Ward, Heath Miller, Rashard Mendenhall and the Pittsburgh defense should all be in your lineups. Start Mike Wallace as a flex. For Miami, Brandon Marshall is obvious but Ronnie Brown, Chad Henne and Davone Bess should only be emergency options this week.

Cleveland at New Orleans 1:00 PM

With a rookie quarterback, best to stay away from the Cleveland passing game, except for Ben Watson who is quietly the #5 TE in the NFL right now. Peyton Hillis has developed into an every week play. Drew Brees is a start of course as is Marques Colston and the New Orleans defense. Robert Meachem and Lance Moore are both risky – proceed with caution.

St. Louis at Tampa Bay 1:00 PM

For St. Louis, the only reliable option is Steven Jackson. Sam Bradford is an OK option and the WR position is a tossup. Either Danario Alexander or Danny Amendola could have a good day – your guess is as good as mine. For the Bucs, avoid the running backs at all cost and consider Josh Freeman and Mike Williams OK, not great starters. The only absolutely reliable Buc appears to be Kellen Winslow.

San Francisco at Carolina 1:00 PM

Carolina has a good pass defense so I wouldn’t trust Alex Smith this week. That said, Vernon Davis is a no-brainer and Michael Crabtree could be a decent flex as there is really no one else to catch the ball for San Francisco. I would consider the 49ers defense because of who they are playing and you can never, ever bench Frank Gore. DeAngelo Williams may have a good game this week but he’s the only sure fire starter. Steve Smith returns from injury this week and is worth a flex start.

Buffalo at Baltimore 1:00 PM

If you are a gambler, you could consider Fred Jackson and Lee Evans for the Bills but only if you are absolutely desperate. For Baltimore, it’s all systems go! The defense, Rice, Flacco, Boldin, Mason and even Todd Heap could start for you this week.

Arizona at Seattle 4:05 PM

There is only one startable Cardinal and that is Larry Fitzgerald – period! For Seattle, Marshawn Lynch should be able to build on a decent effort last week; Mike Williams had 15 targets last week and is a fine start as is the Seattle defense. Fringe starters include Matt Hasselbeck and John Carlson for Seattle.

Oakland at Denver 4:15 PM

Oakland’s quarterback situation is a total mess right now. Outside of Zach Miller, you have to completely stay away. The Oakland running game has been a pleasant surprise all season long so start Michael Bush with confidence. For Denver, Kyle Orton and Brandon Lloyd have become unbenchable. With Eddie Royal hurting, Brandon Lloyd might be a decent flex and this may be the week that the Denver running game gets going. Knowshon Moreno is a fine play against a brutal Oakland run defense.

New England at San Diego 4:15 PM

Tom Brady is a weekly start especially since there is no running game to speak of for New England. That said, Wes Welker and Deion Branch are good plays this week along with Aaron Hernandez. For San Diego, you just can’t sit Philip Rivers even though he may be without three weapons this week. Antonio Gates is automatic (if he plays!) and Patrick Crayton is a play based on the fact that he is the only healthy receiver for the Chargers. I still don’t trust San Diego’s running game but if you are stuck, Ryan Matthews is worth a shot.

Minnesota at Green Bay 8:20 PM

I don’t trust Brett Favre in the least right now. It is a shame because he has taken Randy Moss and Percy Harvin from automatic starter status to fringe starter status. The only reliable Viking in this game is Adrian Peterson who should have his typically solid game. Minnesota’s defense may have a tough time this week but if you drafted them, you’ll have to start them. For Green Bay, stay away from the running game as always but start Rodgers, Jennings and the Green Bay defense with confidence. Donald Driver is dinged right now but if he plays, he is a good flex.

NY Giants at Dallas 8:30 PM

The Giants have won three straight and have looked good doing so. Start ‘em all! Manning, Bradshaw, Nicks, Steve Smith and the Giants defense are all fine plays this week. For Dallas be wary of the running game against a very good Giants run defense. Felix Jones is just OK this week. Figure on Tony Romo passing a lot in this game. Romo, Austin and Whitten are automatic while Roy Williams and Dez Bryant are flex players this week.

Week 7 Byes: Detroit, Indianapolis, NY Jets, Houston

Good Luck and may the Fantasy Gods be with you!
