Line 'em up/ Bench their butts

This column's intent is to give the readers an idea of few good players in favorable match ups and a few good players in bad match ups. If you have a great player, then it may not advisable to bench him for someone in the Line 'em Up section. If I suggest that you bench one of your studs, you can only do this if you have a good option behind him. If you don't have a good player behind him, don't bench 'em. Remember every league is different and I am advising from a standard league.

Off Week 6 -Dallas, Indianapolis, Miami, San Francisco

Line ‘em Up

QB Aaron Rogers of Green Bay . Roger is having a good season with 6 TDs and only 1 interception with 1098 yards. He is facing a Lions’ defense that is 27th against the pass and is 32nd in points allowed. It should be a great match up.

QB Matt Hasselbeck of Seattle. Hasselbeck was finally healthy enough to play last week and demonstrated that he can still be a good QB. He is going against the 32nd ranked pass defense in the Cardinals who are giving up 303 passing yards a game. I look for Hasselbeck to have a huge game.

RB Carnell “Cadillac” Williams of Tampa Bay. Williams is set for a big week against the Panthers’ 30th ranked run defense. The Panthers have a great pass defense but can not stop the run. They have given up 6 rushing TD’s so far this year. I look for them to give up a couple more to Cadillac.

RB DeAngelo Williams of Carolina . Last week I promoted Williams and he was a huge disappointment. I am calling on him again. He is facing the Tampa Bay Defense who is 28th in rushing defense and 30th in points allowed. I do not think he will miss two weeks in a row.

WR Mike Sims-Walker of the Jacksonville. Sims-Walker has come on to be a decent starter every week. He is going against the Rams and the 25th ranked pass defense and the 31st ranked scoring defense.

WR Nate Burleson of Seattle. Burleson is a decent play most weeks. This week he is going against the Cardinals.

Bench their Butts

QB Brett Favre of Minnesota. Favre is having a good fantasy season. He is playing against a tough Ravens’ Defense. If you have a good alternative, leave him on the bench.

QB Philip Rivers of San Diego. Rivers.is a must start for most fantasy owners. If you have a really good back up, you might consider putting him on the bench. He is facing a tough Bronco defense.

RB LaDainian Tomlinson
of San Diego. LT is not the same stud from a few years ago but he can be productive at times. This week is not one of those times. I would leave him on the bench against the 6th ranked rushing defense of the Broncos.

RB Michael Turner of Atlanta. It is difficult not to start Turner after last season but this year, he has not been the same rusher. He is facing a good run defense in Chicago.

WR Dwayne Bowe of Kansas City. Bowe is a good young WR but this week he faces the third best pass defense. I think Bowe has a sub-par week.

WR Terrell Owens of Buffalo. T.O. has not been able to be a difference maker in Buffalo. This week he goes against a tough Jets pass defense. Leave Owens on the bench.

***** Last week I suggested benching Matt Ryan. One of my readers, Troub., challenged this view. He felt that Ryan would be a solid start against a tough 49ers defense. He was correct in keeping Ryan in the lineup. I wanted to tip my fantasy hat to Troub. You have to go with your instincts.*****
