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 Kurt Warner of Arizona. Kurt has been a good fantasy starter. This week, he faces the 27th ranked pass defense of the 49ers. I expect a big game from Warner.

QB Alex Smith of San Francisco. Smith has been a decent fantasy player since he took over. This week his is facing the terrible pass defense of the Cardinals.

RB Quinton Ganther of Washington. Ganther has taken over the starting job for Washington. He is a decent start this week against Oakland's 30th ranked rush defense.

RB Thomas Jones of the New York Jets. The Jets are the #1 rushing team. This week they go against the 31st ranked rush defense. Look for Jones to have a big game.

WR Robert Meachem of New Orleans. Meachem has been red hot for the Saints. This week he faces the 29th ranked pass defense of the Falcons.

WR Marques Colston of New Orleans. Colston has been up and down all season partially because Brees spreads the ball around. This week, the Saints are playing against the Falcons' 29th ranked pass defense.

Bench their Butts

QB Carson Palmer of Cincinnati. Palmer is facing a very tough pass rush and solid defense of the Vikings this week.

QB Bruce Gradkowski of Oakland. Gradkowski has had a couple of good games since taking over as QB. This week he will face a very tough pass defense (#5) in the Redskins. If you were considering starting him, I would not this week.

RB Cedric Benson of Cincinnati. Benson has been a huge fantasy surprise this season. This week he faces the 2nd ranked rush defense of the Vikings. He is not a strong start this week.

RB Steven Jackson of St. Louis. Jackson has a sore back and has been banged up this season. He is going against the Titans 8th ranked rush defense. Keep Jackson on the bench.

WR Antonio Bryant of the Tampa Bay. Bryant has bounced back to be a good fantasy starter after a poor start. He is going against the Jets' first ranked pass defense. I would put him on the bench this week.

WR Braylon Edwards of the New York Jets. Edwards. Clemens is starting since Sanchez is injured. This is not good news for Edwards. Tampa Bay has a decent pass defense.
