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 – Matt Cassel @ Dolphins - With 34 completions since the bye week, Cassel has racked up 422 yards.  Even though he has thrown 4 INTs to just 1 TD, Cassel is set to have a solid week against the Dolphins.  He also has a new weapon in Jon Baldwin which makes his life much easier.

Fav RB Matchup – Steven Jackson vs Cardinals - Jackson just ran all over the Saints last week for 159 yards and 2 TDs.  He also has caught 4 passes in each of the last 4 games.  Even with a lead the Rams AJ Feeley threw the ball 37 times.  That seems pretty dumb.  Expect at least 25 carries again for SJax.
  • 29 carries for 130 yards, but somehow did not find the endzone.

Fav WR Matchup – Victor Cruz at Patriots - No Hakeem Nicks means a BIG game is in store for Mr. Salsa himself, Victor Cruz.  With 8 20+ yard receptions already, Cruz will be looked at down field all day against the Patriots defense, which is the WORST in the NFL.
  • 6 catches for 91 yards.  Led the Giants in targets with 11.

Fav TE Matchup – Heath Miller vs Ravens - He has been pretty consistent lately with 15 catches in the last 3 games.  The Steelers have shifted towards the pass this year, with Mendy not having his best season, and Miller is a nice target for Big Ben.
  • 5 catches for 73 yards

Fav DEF Matchup – 49ers at Redskins - The Niners D is salivating at this matchup.  The Redskins are looking worse each week and with out Santana Moss, they will have a ton of trouble moving the football.
  • 11 Points allowed, 2 fumbles recovered, 1 interception, 1 sack.  The Redskins dumped the ball off 14 times to RB Roy Helu which led to a late 4th quarter score and 2pt conversion.

Upset of the Week (2-6)

Pick 6 (36-12)
