Rex Grossman (WAS): Goes up against the New Enlgand defence that has been picked n all ear and just gave up 350 yards to the Colt’s Orlovsky. even without Fred David i can picture Grossman easily throwing for 300 yards and a pair of TDs.
Mark Sanchez (NYJ): Sanchez will be slinging the ball against the Chiefs this weekend, who have allowed multiple touchdown games to countless QB’s this season. Sanchez is setting personal bests for yards and TDs and this could be a game for him to continue that trend with 2-3 scores.
Pierre Thomas (NO): Ingram is out this week with a toe injury which should give Thomas plenty of opportunities. Should New Orleans blow Tennessee away THomas will get late game carries, if its close, he is still a very effective pass catcher. Thomas will be able to gain a good amount of yards, the TD is the question.
Marion Barber (CHI): No Forte and No Cutler means a very heavy ground attack from Chicago, and it will be led by Marion Barber. I’m not much of a fan of Barber but the workload he should get warrants a start in many leagues.
Darrius Heyward-Bey (OAK): Oakland has to play and beat Green Bay this weekend if they want to stay a top of their Division. Ford and Murphy are not expected to play, which would mean lots of targets for the speedster Heyward-Bey who reeled in a TD catch again Miami last week.
Malcolm Floyd (SD): Came back to the San Diego lineup last week against Jacksonville and had a solid effort. The Jaguars were burned all game long as Rivers threw for over 300 yards and multiple touchdown. The Chargers are still a very talented team and in a very winnable division. Look for Rivers to air the ball out a lot again this week against the Bills.
Santana Moss (WAS): I expect Grossman to throw for 300 yards against the Patriots secondary, and without Fred Davis, Moss should see a lot of those targets. Moss has been a very consistent fantasy WR for the last 2 seasons providing he is on the field.
Brandon Pettigrew (DET): Pettigrew has not been what I expected from him this year, Tony Scheffler is likely to take some of that blame as he has caught 5 TD, more than twice that of Pettigrew despite way less yardage. The Vikings allow the most pass TDs so far this season so its a great chance for Brandon (or Tony) to reach the end zone.
