Chad Henne vs. Tampa Bay – The Tampa Bay secondary is one of the worst in the
NFL and while Henne won’t be asked to throw a lot, he should find success when
he does throw it. I’m not looking for big numbers from him, but he’s worth a
shot if you’re desperate.
Vince Young vs. Buffalo – Buffalo has all sorts of injury problems on defense
and Young should find success in the air and on the ground. He’s certainly worth
a shot if you’re looking for some upside.
Mike Bell at St. Louis – Have to think the Saints win this one going away and if
that transpires, Bell should be the ball that finishes off the game. He should
be able to score and post over 60 yards on the ground.
Chris Wells vs. Seattle – Not too long ago, the Cardinals won easily at Seattle
and they get to face a shaky Seahawk defense again this week. Wells has become a
bigger part of the Cardinal running game in recent weeks and he should post good
enough numbers for you to start him as your #3 RB.
Jonathan Stewart vs. Atlanta – Even if starting RB DeAngelo Williams plays, this
matchup is good enough against a weak Falcon run defense that Stewart should
post good enough numbers for you to start him as your #3 RB.
Laurence Maroney at Indianapolis – No Sammy Morris to deal with and the Colt run
defense is still poor. Maroney has been looking decent the last two weeks and
he’s worth a shot as your #3 RB in this matchup.
LenDale White vs. Buffalo – He’s been a bum just about all season, but the Bill
front seven has lot of injuries and issues. If you were ever going to start
White, this would be the matchup to do so as your #3 RB.
Kolby Smith at Oakland – The Raider run defense is weak and if the game is
close, Smith’s role figures to increase in his second game back this season. He
has a decent chance to score and is worth a shot as your #3 RB.
Kenny Britt vs. Buffalo – This is obviously a deep reach, but Britt has looked
pretty good when given a chance at extended playing time this season. He’ll fill
in for Justin Gage who is considered their top passing option. Keep in mind Bill
starting CB Terrence McGee is out, so Britt’s matchup is looking even better.
He’s worth a shot as your #3 WR if you’re desperate.
Malcom Floyd vs. Philadelphia – The Eagle CBs are pretty small and while Floyd
likely won’t see a lot of passes since he’s generally their #3 passing option,
he figures to get some looks in the red zone area. He’s worth a shot as your #3
Jeremy Maclin at San Diego – This game could be fairly high scoring, so Maclin
could post decent numbers this week. Good enough to start him as your #3 WR.
Mark Clayton at Cleveland – He’s struggled for most of the season, but so has the Brown secondary. Looking for a big play or two from him and he’s worth starting as your #3 WR.
Jeremy Shockey at St. Louis – The Ram secondary and linebackers are nothing
special and Shockey figures to get a decent amount of looks against them today.
Brandon Pettigrew at Minnesota – He’s becoming a bigger part of their passing
game and rookie QB Matthew Stafford is starting to develop better chemistry with
him. The Vikings don’t cover the tight ends well usually, so Pettigrew is worth
Todd Heap at Cleveland – He’s been quiet for several weeks, but the Brown
defensive back-seven isn’t very good. So Heap could have a decent game on Monday
night. He’s worth a shot if you’re desperate.
Miami vs. Tampa Bay – Even without starting OLB Joey Porter, the Dolphin defense
figures to have their way with rookie QB Josh Freeman who makes his first road
start. Freeman didn’t really throw the ball that well last week and got lucky
that his intended passing targets were getting wide open.
Arizona vs. Seattle – The Cardinal defense really struggled at home against the
Panthers a few weeks ago, but this is a big divisional game and you know how
they did at the Seahawks not too long ago. They know how to attack their injured
OL and figure to be a solid starter this week.
Tennessee vs. Buffalo – The Bills have injury issues on their offensive line and
the Titan defense really has been solid the last two weeks with sacks and
turnovers. They should do quite well at home against a struggling Bill offense.
NY Jets vs. Jacksonville – The Jet defense has really fallen off after a hot
start. However, they’re coming off of a bye and they’ll face an offense that
doesn’t seem to bring the same intensity on the road.
Baltimore at Cleveland – The Browns aren’t able to run the ball consistently and
they certainly don’t throw it well. Not a good thing with the Raven defense
coming to town. This is a good week to get them in your lineup against one of
the NFL’s worst offenses.
