Another Sunday afternoon and the Bears again are not playing, are you the type of fantasy owner that is thinking about which games are on TV when deciding on your lineup?  If so Thursday night football has to be killing you.  That makes Thursday, Sunday, and Monday night football plus three Sunday afternoon games to get at least one player in to keep the football interesting.  The real danger some owners run into is keeping one player in the lineup for Monday Night just in case you need some points.  This week is not a hard choice since the Bears are playing and a whole other set of homer questions to go along with Monday night starting questions.  Point is simple do your research and start your best lineup  possible even if  you only get to see your players or plays shown on a highlight packages on ESPN or NFL Network.


Stud-Andrew Luck- The Indy rookie gets the Browns defense. Hello big week!

Dud-Aaron Rodgers- The Rams defense if for real so there will be no 6TD performance this week.

Sleeper- Matt Hasselbeck- He gets to face the Bills defense which should lead to some big passing yardage.

Running Back

Stud- Matt Forte- This isn’t a homer pick, Forte should have lots of open field in front of him Monday Night.

Dud-Ben Jarvus Green-Ellis- Steelers D isn’t what it used to be but it’s good enough to shut down Ellis.

Sleeper-Trent Richardson- The top rookie fantasy running back shows his worth this week against the Colts.

Wide Receiver

Stud-Calvin Johnson- No knock against Peanut but Johnson will have a big night as long as Marshall Monday night.

Dud- Anquan Boldin- If you have to start him you have to, but Houston will shut him down this week.

Sleeper-Stephen Hill- The Patriots can’t stop anybody except the Bills, Hill could have a big night.

Tight End

Stud-Kyle Rudolph- He’s arrived and now he will have a huge week against the Cardinals

Dud- Owen Daniels- The Ravens will have a lot to focus on but Daniels will be high on the list.

Sleeper-Mercedes Lewis- Someone has to score for the Jags… right?


Stud- Vikings- The Cardinals offense hasn’t looked very good the past few weeks and the Vikings D has been stellar!

Dud- Cincy- I hope you only are using them because of bye week issues after that they need to go bye bye

Sleeper- Raiders- They get a crack at Blaine Gabbert this week, and they should get some good point totals

Good Luck Week #7!!
