- Start'em if ya Got'em
QB - Matt Ryan - Minn doesn't have their top 2 DB's, Matty at home on a 3 game hot streak. Done deal Pal.
RB - Darren Sproles - Statistically the GMEN are great against pass catching RB's, but at home on the turf I believe Sproles with be force fed screen passes to keep the rush at bay.
WR - Santonio Holmes - Roll with Santonio after Sanchize's motivational speech. Buffalo is reeling from the loss of Fred Jackson who was their offense. This should allow the Jets offense plenty of opportunities to get the ground game going after Buff also lost their NT Kyle Wilson setting up Holmes on several big plays, which is exactly what Buffalo's defense allows.
TE - Jake Ballard - Jake is becoming to Eli, what Kevin Boss used to be; his chain moving security blanket. In a potential shootout against a blitz happy defense, Jake should see plenty of targets.
- Nate Dogg: "Hold up;..... Wait"
QB - Carson Palmer - No DMC, no Ford,no DHB and Moore??? means another 30 carries for Michael Bush. But up against Chicago's cover 2 even if Moore is active, he'll probably be limited just like last week in a run heavy approach. So who does Carson throw too?? Chaz in Boss? Sounds like a 70's good cop bad cop show... Good cop, Bad QB.
RB - Toby Gerhardt - Of this weeks waiver wire darlings this one has the least upside. Replacing AP doesn't mean you replace AP's production. Especially this week against a Falcon's defense that ranks 2nd against the run. Perhaps as Ponder gets more comfortable and if AP's absence is an extended one, Toby may have matchup play potential. This isn't that week.
WR - Vincent Jackson - Champ Bailey owns #1 WR's and VJax is only averaging around 50-65 yards against Champ and with his plays usually coming from Rivers heev n chuck throws, that isn't alot of action. Figure Denver to be draining the clock in the running game, and with no need for S.D. to really pace the scoring look for Rivers and the offense to go elsewhere.
TE - Brandon Pettigrew - GB's athletic 'backers and ball hawk Safety Woodson will limit Pettigrew in an offense that has plenty of options. Figure the redzone throws to go to CJ, the dump offs to Kevin Smith and quick slants to Titus and Burleson; sucking any value out of Pettigrew.
