Fantasy Football Week 7 - Bye Weeks(DET, IND, NYJ, HOU)

Have a dilemma at RB/WR? Cant figure out which player to start? Leave your question in the comment section and we will hook you up with the right answer!

If we have given you a suggestion as to who you should play, please reply on Monday or Tuesday and let us know what you did and if it worked!

KeithyP's Favs of the Week
Fav QB Matchup - Drew Brees vs Browns - Cleveland is near the bottom in passing yards allowed per game (228) and only have 4 Interceptions and 10 sacks but have allowed 11 touchdowns.  Brees looked like the Superbowl MVP last week against the Buccaneers and should put up great fantasy numbers at home.
37 of 56 for 356 Yards with 2 TDs and 4 INTs.

Fav RB Matchup - Ray Rice vs Bills - With only 2 TDs and 23 catches so far this season, Ray Rice has been a little dissapointing for a top 5 draft pick.  But luckily for Ray Rice and his owners, the Bills are the leagues worst against the run, allowing 182 yards a game!  Expect much of the same results from the past two weeks (25-30 carries for over 100 yards, 5 catches for 60 yards) and you can bet he finds the endzone atleast once.
13 Carries for 63 Yards. 1 Catch for 1 Yard (2 Targets).

Fav WR Matchup - Brandon Lloyd vs Raiders - Yes Oakland is in the top 10 against the pass (under 200 yards/game) but the Broncos forgot how to run the football this year, which has lead to them being second best in the league tossing the pigskin around.  Lloyd averages 110 yards a game and Orton knows how to find him on big plays, as Lloyd averages 20 yards a catch!  I am positive no one drafted Lloyd but kudos to those of you who snatched him off waivers before everyone else did.
1 Catch for 46 Yards (3 Targets).

Fav TE Matchup - Ben Watson @ Saints - Well we can't always put Antonio Gates here so its time for Ben Watson.  This guy might be one of the more underrated TE in the league.  Colt McCoy is taking snaps for the Browns now and needs a comfort blanket.  Watson is his guy.  McCoy hit him up 6 times for 88 yards and a score last week against the Steelers.
1 Catch for 18 Yards (2 Targets)

Fav DEF Matchup - Kansas City Chiefs vs Jaguars - Jacksonville is bottom 10 in the league passing and 6th in the league rushing.  To bad for them the Chiefs only allow 90 rushing yards a game.  With both teams keeping the ball on the ground for most of the game, there will not be many points scored.
20 Points Allowed, 2 INTs, 1 Fumble Recovery, 1 Sack.

KeithyP's Upset of the Week(2-4)
Patriots @ Chargers

LiLbRo's Favs of the Week
Fav QB Matchup - Matt Cassel vs. Jaguars - Cassel and Bowe finally were on the same page last week connecting for two touchdowns, and now Cassel and Bowe will go up against the Jags who is ranked 30th against the pass, giving up 264 yards a game, and has surrendered 14 passing TDs through 6 games.
13 of 18 for 193 Yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs.

Fav RB Matchup - Rashard Mendenhall @ Dolphins - Yes the Dolphins defense is pretty stingy against the run, but with Big Ben back the Steelers offense connects on all cylinders now.  With that strong defense of the Steelers, the offense should have the ball quite often, and should move the ball down the field and as they near the endzone Mendenhall will see his carries and has a good chance to score here, just as he did last week in Big Ben's return.
15 Carries for 37 Yards.

Fav WR Matchup - Marques Colston vs. Browns - Its been 6 games now and still 0 TDs for Colston.  The Browns are ranked 25th against the pass and has given up 14 TDs.  He leads the Saints in Targets, Catches and Yards but has failed to score, but this is the week it all comes together and Colston and Brees will connect for a big day.
10 Catches for 112 Yards and a TD (15 Targets).

Fav TE Matchup -Vernon Davis @ Panthers - Davis left the game late in the 4th with a knee injury but an MRI came back clear and he is listed as day to day and will be out there against the Panthers.  Carolina surprisingly has a good defense, just no offense so nobody realizes that.  However covering a 6-3 250lbs TE is not easy to guard for anyone, and Davis has scored in 3 straight.  Expect more of the same here in this one.
4 Catches for 74 Yards with a TD (8 Targets).

Fav DEF Matchup - Ravens vs. Bills - Giving up just under 16 points per game, the Ravens face a Bills offense ranked 30th, spells trouble for the Bills and big fantasy points for the Ravens.  Yea Fitzpatrick has helped the cause in Buffalo but the Ravens will shut them down and completely dominate.
34 Points Allowed, 2 INTs, 2 Fumble Recoveries, 1 Sack.
