Matt Cassel QB Chiefs: The Chiefs are playing division rival the Oakland Raiders, who have allowed the most TD passes in the league (12). In addition, Cassel is coming off of a 4 TD game and looks to continue to go through the air for offense, as the Chiefs’ running game is anything but reliable right now.
DeMarco Murray RB Cowboys: Murray failed to impress in relief of Felix Jones last week against the Patriots, but the Cowboys have little other choice, with Tashard Choice looking like a shell of his former self. It doesn’t hurt that the Rams have the worst run defense in the entire National Football League. Trot the rookie out there while the match-ups are good.
Greg Little WR Browns: Little had a nice coming out party last week with almost eighty yards on twelve targets. Look for his chemistry with Colt McCoy to improve even more this week against a 23rd ranked Seahawks pass defense. What may be just as important to know is that their run defense is ranked 7th.
Lance Kendricks TE Rams: As stout as Dallas’ defense is in other areas, especially the run, they are dead last in the league in stopping tight ends. This bodes very well for the emerging Kendricks, who is coming off of a 71 yd game against the Packers. He might be the only bright spot for the Rams in this match-up.
Mark Sanchez QB Jets: Sanchez is not nearly as good of a real quarterback as he is in fantasy, and I think it will catch up to him this Sunday against a 2nd ranked Chargers pass defense. The Sanchize can’t be a paper tiger every week. Try Cassel on for size.
Peyton Hillis RB Browns: There’s a chance Hillis won’t play this week due to a hamstring injury. There’s a better chance that even if he does, He won’t fare very well in limited carries to the deceivingly efficient Seahawks run defense. Also, look for RB Monatrio Hardesty to bite significantly into his carries weekly from here on out.
Santana Moss WR Redskins: Moss continues to put up convincing numbers every season it seems. Too bad that won’t be the case this week. Panthers CB Chris Gamble is playing like a true shutdown corner, limiting every no.1 receiver he’s faced to fewer than 70 yds on the season.
Jason Witten TE Cowboys: Yeah, call me crazy, but What the Rams lack in every other department, they make up for in covering tight ends. No tight end has scored a touchdown against the Rams this season. In fact the Rams have been second best in stopping tight ends for this and the entire last season. If anyone can do it, it’s probably Witten, but there are better match-ups out there to exploit.
