Right now Manning is guaranteed to get you 300 yards and at least two touchdowns. Added bonus is he is facing a weak Washington defense this week.
Sit Em’ QB Phillip River (SD) 225 Passing yards 1 TD 3 INT
The Ravens have yet to allow any quarterback to throw for more than one touchdown. I don’t expect Rivers to buck this trend.
Start Em’ RB Shonn Greene (NYJ) 110 Total yards 1 TD
The Greene train should continue to roll this week. His owners couldn’t ask for a better matchup with a weak Eagles defense.
Sit Em’ RB Frank Gore (SF) 50 Total Yards 0 TD
Alex Smith is regressing to his pre-2011 form. This makes is much easier for opposing defenses to load up the box and hone in on Frank Gore. He’s a risky play this week.
Start Em’ WR Jordy Nelson (GB) 105 Receiving yards 1 TD
With Greg Jennings out for the next two weeks, Nelson is now Aaron Rodgers’ number one target. All Packer wide receivers are good plays this week and their numbers will get better with Jennings out.
Sit Em’ WR Desean Jackson (PHI) 35 Receiving yards 0 TD
With Cromartie and Revis covering Jackson, he should get frustrated early and become a no show thereafter.
Start Em’ TE Jermaine Gresham (CIN) 75 Receiving yards 1 TD
The entire Bengals offense should be a strong play this week. I wouldn’t doubt seeing Gresham being one of the many Bengals to find the end zone.
Sit Em’ TE Owen Daniels (HOU) 35 Receiving yards 0 TD
Daniels should spend most his afternoon blocking for Foster and Tate. Don’t expect to see much action out of the Texans’ passing attack.
Start Em’ DEF TEN 10 Points Allowed 2 Sacks 3 TO
The Titans kept Drew Brees in check for the most part last week. Dan Orlovsky should be no problem.
Sit Em’ DEF NE 30 Points Allowed 1 Sacks 0 TO
New England’s beleaguered defense should have loads of trouble containing Tim Tebow. Add in the fact that Denver rarely turns over the ball and it doesn’t make much sense to play them this week.
