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 – Ryan Fitzpatrick vs Redskins - The Redskins are pretty good against the pass, but no Hightower or Moss will create problems for Washington's offense.  This will give Fitzpatrick the ball for the majority of the game and he knows what to do with it.

Fav RB MatchupMark Ingram/Pierre Thomas/Darren Sproles at Rams - Last week it was fellow rookie DeMarco Murray who terrorized the Rams.  This week it is Mark Ingrams turn. Ingram is nursing some soreness but he should be able to go.  If the Saints are looking to protect the rookie and sit him, expect big things from Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles. Chris Ivory has been added to the roster, but lets hope he does not even see the field.

Fav WR Matchup – Dwayne Bowe vs Chargers - If Mark Sanchez can find Plaxico Burress 3 times in the end zone, Matt Cassel might find Bowe 6 times this week.  The Chargers defense has disappointed all season long and the Chiefs are rolling right now.

Fav TE Matchup – Jake Ballard vs Miami - 8 catches for 152 yards in the two games before the bye, Ballard has been targeted often in the Red Zone.  He is looking better and better each week and Eli is comfortable throwing to him.

Fav DEF Matchup – Titans vs Colts -  This is a battle of two teams coming off horrible losses.  The Titans however seem to be a team that can rebound and rebound in a big way.  The Colts have nothing going for them on offense and if the Titans can contain rookie Delone Carter, expect 10 or less points for the Colts.
