Line 'em up/ Bench their butts

The Counselor is IN:

Line ‘em Up

QB Chad Pennington of Miami. As stated last week, Pennington has been hot of late. The Seahawks have been ice cold. Look for a good game from Chad.

QB Matt Ryan of Atlanta. Ryan continues to develop every week. He has developed much faster than I anticipated. He is a good start against the Saints this weekend.

RB Jamaal Charles of Kansas City. Charles looked very good coming in for the injury to Kolby Smith last weekend against the Bucs. He should have another good game against the Chargers this weekend. This rookie has a lot of speed.

RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis of New England. Green-Ellis has taken over the rushing duties with the injuries to the Pats runningbacks. He has had 3 touchdowns in 3 weeks. I was able to pick him up in two of my leagues this week. If you need an injury pick up, pick him up quickly.

WR Greg Camarillo of Miami. Greg is a wide out that is often overlooked by fantasy owners. He is a big target for Chad Pennington. The Dolphins are playing the Seahawks. I doubt he will have the 111 yards he did last week but should be solid as a third Wide or a flex.

WR Derrick Mason of Baltimore. He is not an exciting player to watch but Joe Flacco likes him a lot. He should be a solid play this week against the Texans.

Bench their Butts

QB Matt Cassel of New England. Cassel has performed well for the Patriots with Brady’s injury. But this week they are playing a tough Bills team. I look for Cassel to have a very poor game this week.

QB Eli Manning of New York. Philly is a tough place for QBs to play. They have limited what teams do against them at home. Eli had a great game against the Cowboys last week but if you have other good options, let him ride the pine this weekend.

RB Willis McGahee of Baltimore. The Ravens are looking at playing the hot hand with a Runningback by committee. Last week Rice was the hot hand. I would expect them to give Rice the ball a lot this week. McGahee continues to be a bad start.

RB Ryan Grant of Green Bay. Grant has not looked as good as he did last year. They are playing the Vikings and they have a solid run defense. If you have a good replacement, bench his butt.

WR Hines Ward of Pittsburg. Big Ben is not healthy. Ward has not been the same receiver as in past years. The Colts are the third best defense against the pass. All signs point to a bad week for Ward.

WR Plaxico Burress of the Giants. If Manning is having a hard time, then Burress will too. He has not played at the level expected for this season and I do not see this as a break out week.
