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 faces the 27th ranked pass defense of the 49ers. Look for a big game out of him.

QB Matt Cassel of Kansas City. Cassel has been terrible as a fantasy QB. This week he has a chance to have a good week against the 25th ranked pass defense of Cleveland. Cassel should look a little bit like he did last year against the Browns.v

RB Jamaal Charles of Kansas City. Charles is the starting back for Chiefs since Johnson left town. He ran for 143 yards last week. He is a good start against the 28th ranked defense of the Browns.

RB Knowshon Moreno of Denver. Moreno has been great his rookie year. He has a great match up against the 30th ranked rush defense of the Raiders.

WR Anquan Boldin of Arizona. Boldin has been sporadic all season. He is a good start this week against Detroit’s 32nd ranked pass defense.

WR Calvin Johnson of Detroit. Johnson is good start anyway but this week he faces a good match up against Arizona’s 28th ranked pass defense.

Bench their Butts

QB Ben Roethilisberger of Pittsburgh. Big Ben is a good fantasy starter. This week he faces the 3rd ranked pass defense of the Packers. If you have another good option, I would go with the other options.

QB Matt Hasselbeck of Seattle. Hasselbeck is a below average fantasy QB. This week will be rough on him against a surprisingly good pass defense of the Bucs (#7 ranked).

RB Ryan Grant of Green Bay. Grant is a decent fantasy backup or flex player. This week he faces the best rush defense in the league in the Steelers. Leave Grant on the bench this week.

RB LaDainian Tomlinson of San Diego. LT is not the stud he used to be but he is a decent start most weeks. This week, he is facing the 3rd ranked rush defense of the Cincinnati.

WR Randy Moss of the New England. Moss has not been a strong fantasy starter this season. He is facing the 5th ranked pass defense of the Bills. At the beginning of the season, who would have guessed that the advise would be to bench Moss against the Bills?

WR Steve Smith of the New York Giants. The Giants face the 4th ranked pass defense in the Redskins. I would look for the Giants to focus on the run and not so much with the pass. Smith should have a down game.
