QB Match-ups to Avoid

Joe Flacco @ Steelers - The Raiders defense is NOT the Steelers!  Flacco has been bad more often than good and the Steelers are the best pass defense in the league.  Flacco threw 3 TDs last week and 3 in the 3 weeks before while throwing for more than just 200 yards once in the prior 4 weeks!  Horrible matchup, plus bad blood between the two teams makes this a game won on the ground.  Oh and they play each other twice in the next 3 weeks.  If you own Flacco, try and trade him to a Big Ben, Mike Vick owner!
RB Match-ups to Avoid

Matt Forte @ 49ers - The 49ers defense is just that scary and the Bears will be without Jay Cutler, meaning the Niners will force Jason Campbell to pass the ball.  The Bears migth actually get shut out on offense.  The only way the Bears even come close to scoring is if the mighty Bears defense does their thing and forces turnovers.

Shonn Greene @ Rams - Greene has rushed for 80 yards just TWICE this season.  He has rushed for less than 60 yards six times.  The Jets just suck at running the football and the Rams defense rarely gets beat by a team that struggles to pass the football.

WR Match-ups to Avoid

Brandon Marshall @ 49ers - Even if Jay Cutler was playing this would be an extremely tough matchup.  I am a Marshall owner and will do everything in my power to find a better matchup this week before finalizing my roster. 

Ravens WR (Anquan Boldin / Torrey Smith) @ Steelers WR (Mike Wallace / Antonio Brown) - With no Big Ben, there is NO passing attack and with Flacco being so inconsistant, I believe this is the week that the Ravens coaching staff realizes they have one of the best RB in the game and will use him like 30 times!  I think the TEs will be the main focus of the passing attack.

TE Match-ups to Avoid

Brandon Pettigrew vs Packers - Pettigrew has more than 40 yards just once in the last five weeks.  The Packers know how to get to the QB and Stafford does not do well when pressured.

Dustin Keller @ Rams - Keller had 14 of his 19 catches in back to back weeks against the Dolphins and Patriots.  The other 3 games he has played in has seen him catch just 5 passes on 7 targets!  Just try and avoid all Jets until Tebow is under center!

DEF Match-ups to Avoid

Dolphins @ Bills - The way C.J. Spiller has been running the football this year (7.3 yards per carry), and the fact that Chris Johnson just rushed for 126 yards against the Fins last week, means a lot of good things for the Bills backfield. 

Cardinals @ Falcons - The Falcons have finally lost, and now there should be less pressure on the coaching staff and team to remain perfect.  This seems like the perfect opportunity to open up the playbook, and take shots down the field.  The Cardinals defense has had nothing but trouble stopping receivers lately allowing 6 TDs to WRs in their last 2 games.
