7.       Josh Freeman vs. SEA- Great matchup this week at home against a terrible defense.

8.       Matt Ryan vs. NO

9.       Aaron Rodgers vs. NYG- Returns from concussion but very tough matchup even for him. Your still starting him though just don’t expect 30 plus points from him.

10.   Eli Manning @ GB

11.   David Garrard vs. WAS

16.   Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. NE

17.   Jay Cutler vs. NYJ

20.   Mike Wallace vs. CAR- I think if anyone from Steelers receiving corp will beat the solid Panthers pass D, it’ll be Wallace.

21.   Pierre Garcon @ OAK

22.   Malcom Floyd @ CIN

23.   Mario Manningham @ GB

24.   Mike Sims-Walker vs. WAS

25.   Percy Harvin @ PHI- I like him a lot this week actually especially with Joe Webb under center, could make a few big plays on his own.

26.   Deion Branch @ BUF

27.   Santonio Holmes @ CHI- If Sanchez ends up sitting with shoulder injury then he’s a borderline start.

28.   Mike Williams @ TB

29.   Johnny Knox vs. NYJ

30.   Derrick Mason @ CLE

31.   Brandon Gibson vs. SF- I know he was held in check last week, but I expect Bradford will come back his way in this one.

32.   Anthony Armstrong @ JAX

33.   Joe Webb @ PHI- If he’s receiver eligible I think he makes for a decent WR3 this week.

34.   Steve Breaston vs. DAL – The Cowboys are the worst team giving up points to opposing receivers, so if Skelton can have some time, then Breaston can join Fitz as a legit finals starter.

35.   Michael Crabtree @ STL

36.   Braylon Edwards @ CHI – See Santonio Holmes

37.   Miles Austin @ ARI- Don’t like the matchup at all for him this week against Rodgers-Cromartie who has been playing great as of late.

40.   Davone Bess vs. DET- Solid flex in PPR leagues

41.   Anquan Boldin @ CLE

44.   Jacoby Jones @ DEN

45.   Donald Driver vs. NYG

46.   Chad OchoCinco vs. SD- Only expected to be in on less than 50% of plays so keep him on benches.
