Line 'em up/ Bench their butts

The Counselor is IN:

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.

No Off Weeks

Line ‘em Up

QB Aaron Rogers of Green Bay. Rogers has been a bit sporadic with fantasy statistics this season. This week they are going against the 29th ranked pass defense of the 49ers. Look for Rogers to put up some big numbers this week.

QB “Big” Ben Roethlisberger of Pittsburgh. The 8th best passing offense goes against the Kansas City Chiefs’ 28th ranked passing defense. Big Ben should have a big game.

RB Pierre Thomas of New Orleans. Thomas is going against the 31st ranked rush defense. Look for a huge fantasy game.

RB Jason Snelling of Atlanta. Snelling has fallen into the starting role in Atlanta. They are the 9th ranked rushing team. He did a good job of replaced Turner last week. I like him in the match up against a decent but not excellent rush defense of the Giants. The Giants are great against the pass so look for the Falcons to rush the ball.

WR Andre Johnson of Houston. What happens when the 3rd most effective passing game goes against the 31st passing defense? It should lead to lots of scores for passing game and WR Andre Johnson.

WR Anquan Boldin of Arizona. Boldin’s fantasy number has been down this year. He has been fighting injuries. He is now healthy and going against the Rams. I look for a big game from him.

Bench their Butts

QB Tony Romo of Dallas. Tony’s has only had one touchdown over the last two weeks. The Redskins are 1st against the pass. I would not look for Tony to have a break out week.

QB Matt Ryan of Atlanta. Ryan will be without his starting Running Back Michael Turner. He is facing the Giants who has the 2nd ranked passing defense. If you have a decent backup, I would consider starting him instead of Ryan.

RB Frank Gore of San Francisco. Do not bench Gore unless you have a good alternative. He is facing a tough run defense of the Packers, 4th against the rush.

RB Michael Bush of Oakland. Bush has been a decent RB2 or flex player but this week they are the Bengals and their 2nd ranked rush defense.

WR Braylon Edwards of the New York Jets. Edwards’ trade to the Jets has breathed new life into his fantasy numbers. The Patriots Defense is 7th against the pass. This is not good match up for Edwards.

WR Roddy White of Atlanta. The Falcons are going against the 2nd ranked passing defense of the Giants. White is not a good start this week.

Andre Johnson is one of the top receivers in the NFL and the Texans have never had a winning season. I think if they dont make some noise in the next year or two and at least make a playoff appearance, you will see him traded.

I guess it's safe to say that Braylon Edwards should be benched for the rest of the season...Sanchez isn't playing well and Edwards has T.O./Roy Williams hands...

i like this page because it tells you what you need to know about the players

Andre Johnson is a beast and quite possibly the best wide receiver in the league. I think Schaub is also top tier at quarterback, but really benefits from having such a stud wideout.
