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.

Line ‘em Up

QB Donovan McNabb of Philadelphia. McNabb will be a good start this week against Atlanta. Atlanta’s defense is 27th against the pass. Atlanta’s star QB Ryan is out and starting Running back Turner is still fighting off his ankle injury. The Falcons defense will probably be on the field a lot this week. This bodes very well for McNabb this week.

QB Carson Palmer of Cincinnati. Palmer has been a decent starter and this week he goes against Detroit’s 32nd ranked pass defense.

RB Rashard Mendenhall of Pittsburgh. Big Ben is still banged up and to help protect him or Dixon (if Dixon starts), the Steelers will focus on their running game. Since Oakland has the 31st ranked rush defense, it will be a good week for the Steelers to focus on the run.

RB Thomas Jones of the New York Jets. Jones has been decent #2 starting RB. This week he goes against the 32nd ranked rush defense. Look for Jones to have a big game.

WR Jeremy Maclin of Philadelphia. With Jackson recovering from a concussion, it does not appear he will play this week. This will make Maclin the top receiver for Philly.

WR Chad Ochocinco of Cincinnati. Chad had not been the old Chad but he is a decent WR 3 or flex player. This week he has a great match up against the Lions.

Bench their Butts

QB Drew Bress of New Orleans. Bress is a stud and I honestly do not expect anyone to bench his butt but... he is going against the Number 1 pass defense.

QB Kurt Warner of Arizona. Warner is still trying to recover from a concussion. This week the Cards are taking on the 7th ranked pass defense of the Ravens (5th overall defense). If you have a good back up, I would let Warner have another week to recover from the concussion.

RB Justin Fargas of Oakland. Fargas is a decent spot starter but this week he is going against the #1 rush defense of Pittsburgh.

RB Brandon Jacobs of the New York Giants. Jacobs has been a fantasy disappointment this season. He is going against a tough rush defense of the Cowboys. Keep Jacobs on the bench.

WR Miles Austin of the Dallas. Austin has had a break out season for the Boys. This week he faces the 4th ranked pass defense of the Giants.

WR Anquan Boldin of Arizona. Arizona will score points but the Ravens are a tough defense and will be stopping parts of the Cards offense. It is unlikely that they will stop Fitzgerald.
