The Bears get to visit Dixie and the talk is Jay Cutler’s return home, but the real talk should be shutting down Chris Johnson.  Johnson went from fantasy super stud to super dud and back again faster than Cam Newton went from good to pouty.  Johnson’s 2,000 yard season helped send me to the championship game only to be followed by season’s of disappointments.  Now he’s very inconsistent which hopefully continues this Sunday. Johnson thrives lately on weak defenses like the Bills so if the Bears get off to a quick start shutting him and his cutback lanes down it could be a long day in Nashville for the Titans and Johnson


Stud- Big Ben- If the Steelers can give Ben anytime he will throw for a lot of yard and sprinkle in some touchdowns on Sunday.

Dud-Brandon Weeden- The rookie will not be able to chuck it all over the field against the Ravens.

Sleeper- Michael Vick- After weeks of being booed he gets a very soft Saints D to regain his own confidence and maybe the city’s for at least a week.

Running Back

Stud-Arian Foster- Not going out on a limb here, but Foster and the Texans offense should shred up the Bills D.

Dud-Ahmad Bradshaw- The Steelers D will limit Bradshaw all day and force Manning to beat them.

Sleeper-Darrin McFadden- He’s do for a breakout game this season and the Bucs D on the road could be the right fit for such a day.

Wide Receiver

Stud-Reggie Wayne- Wayne has the privilege of Peyton Manning and now Andrew Luck pretty good career!

Dud-James Jones- The Cardinals D will shut down, the Jones scoring TD’s every week express.

Sleeper- Earl Bennett- It’s Earl’s homecoming week too he will find the endzone this week.

Tight End

Stud-Jason Witten-Is he still catching balls against the Giants? His day will fill up the stat sheet again this weekend.

Dud-Jacob Tamme- For all the Broncos scoring his production has been disappointing.

Sleeper-Anthony Fasano- Should hit pay dirt this weekend


Stud-Bears- A top 30 fantasy scoring unit in all of fantasy football, they are a stud until proven wrong.

Dud- Falcons- Tony Romo has a lot to prove this week and the Falcons will feel his passing effects.

Sleeper- Lions- They will score once in Jacksonville!
