Have a dilemma at RB/WR? Can’t 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!

Fav QB Matchup – Jay Cutler vs Vikings - As mentioned last week, the Vikings are not very good against the Pass.  If Cutler has time, which is rare, he can be great.  He will be great this week.
  • 21 Completions, 2 TDs 267 Yards, 115.9 QB Rtg, Only sacked once. 

Fav RB Matchup – Redskins vs Eagles - Who really knows who will carry the ball in Washington, but all 3 guys are capable of beating the Eagles defense.  Time of possession will be key in the game, if the Redskins want to stay atop the NFC East.
  • Not sure why but the Redskins only ran the ball 14 times(42 yards)!  They allowed Rex Grossman to throw 4 INTs before benching him instead of doing what the Redskins do best.  Very strange.
Fav WR Matchup – Dez Bryant @ Patriots - The Cowboys may not have the opportunity to run the ball much in this game as the Pats will score at least 40 on them.  Bryant should put up gaudy numbers in a losing effort this week for the Cowboys, but he will help you win your matchup this week.
  • In what most thought would be a shootout, turned out to be a pretty boring(until the 4th qtr), sloppy game.  Bryant did lead the Boys in receiving yards however, with 78, but with just 4 catches and no TD it wasn't the best fantasy game.

Fav TE Matchup – Tony Gonzalez vs Panthers - Year after year TG does his thing.  This matchup against the Panthers should be like a run through at practice for the ageless wonder.
  • Caught every ball thrown his way, unfortunately it was just 3 times for 29 yards.

Fav DEF Matchup – Packers vs Rams - No explanation needed.
  • Only 3 points allowed, 3 sacks and an INT
Upset of the Week (2-3)
