Mark Sanchez (NYJ) – It seems every week I have a QB listed in my start em list who is going against New England, and for the most part it has been paying off as New England allows the third most points to opposing QBs. Sanchez has been playing the best of his career this season and should be able to put up some decent numbers in this rematch.
Chris Johnson (TEN) – Ck2lame as some have called him finally had another good game when he rushed for 60 and added 40 more in the air in week 9 against the Browns, a team that has been very stiff against the run. I’m thinking Johnson is going to continue to regain his elite form as he runs the ball against the leagues most generous defence to running backs, Carolina.
Roy Helu (WAS) – Helu was given a big workload last week carrying the ball 10 times for 41 yard while also catching a team record 14 passes for 105 yards; amazing value for PPR leagues. It’s tough depending on a Mike Shanahan RB but after a game like that the Rookie should warrant an extended workload again this week against Miami.
Brandon Marshall (MIA) – Marshall started off the Dolphins week 9 win over KC by catching the Dolphins first two plays from scrimmage; he finished the game with 8 catches for 106 yards and a TD. The Dolphins get a crack at back to back wins when they play the struggling Redskins; as a dolphins fan I seriously hope they try to get him as involved again in week 10.
Lance Moore (NO) – New Orleans plays Atlanta this week in what will be another big divisional game for them after beating The Buccs last week. Atlanta has been heating up and has Julio Jones back; I expect this game to put up a lot of points, Moore has become an even bigger part of Brees’ passing game this year and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him haul in a TD in this matchup.
Maclin / Jackson (PHI) – The Eagles suffered a disappointing loss to the Bears on Monday Night Football; Philly tends to play well under the lights. I expect Philly to bounce back from the loss by beating up on the Kolb-less Cardinals, with Vick throwing for at least two TD’s.
Jay Cutler (CHI) – Cutler played a good game Monday night against a tough eagles defence but I don’t expect him to match those numbers again this week. The Lions have been another tough defence in the NFL this year so it will be tough for Cutler to overcome the odds and have back to back good games against good defences.
Matt Schaub (HOU) – Andre Johnson is ruled out once again, taking away Schaub’s best receiver for another game. With Johnson out the Texans have realized the combined talent of Arian Foster and Ben Tate and I see no reason for them to move away from this. With how well the Saints ran against TB last week I imagine the Texans will be able too.
Brandon Jacobs (NYG) – Jacobs will once again be the lone back for the Giants with Ahmad Bradshaw out for the week 10 matchup aganst San Fran. San Fran is the leagues top run defence and is yet to allow a rushing TD; I would’t bank on Jacobs being the first one.
LaGarrette Blount (TB) – Blount under performed last week against the Saints, so I’m not expecting much more from him this week. Tampa Bay may end up having to play keep up with Houston, limiting Blount’s role in the offence.
Marshawn Lynch (SEA) – Lynch is not having a very good year and gets to run against the leagues top rush defence. Baltimore is perennially one of the leagues top defences and this year is no different.
Larry Fitzgerald (ARZ) – Fitzgerald has all the talent in the world but is once again stuck in a terrible situation. Kevin Kolb is likely to be out for another week, meaning John Skelton will be throwing the ball around. Against a scary Eagles secondary, It could be a very tough game for the star.
Jabar Gaffney (WAS) – Gaffney was one of the most popular waiver wire additions just a few weeks ago, but with the current state of Washington’s offence, this should be another week for Gaffney to ride the pine. The only upside for him this week is playing against Miami.
