Sunday night’s showdown versus the Bears and Texans presents an interesting situation.  Both rosters are full of fantasy players that are going up against two of the best defenses in the NFL.  This is Week #10 so we are still in bye weeks so this does effect the decsion.  Most of these players are a must start no matter who they are playing, especially the running backs in Matt Forte and Arian Foster.  The last meeting against the Texans, Andre Johnson went off so there is no way to bench him.  The only starter of the bunch that is questionable is Jay Cutler.  Cutler under the lights can be really good or really bad so you have to roll the dice if you must, but if your other option has a better match up I say sit Cutler but you still have to start every other player this Sunday Night!


Stud- Big Ben- He gets to torch the Chiefs defense on national TV. Ben has to be licking his chops at facing the worst team in the NFL.

Dud- Alex Smith- The Rams defense will be a tough test which should not lead to a lot of fantasy points.

Sleeper- Andy Dalton- If he gets time he will throw the ball all day against the Giants D

Running Back-

Stud-LeSean McCoy- Andy Reid has to know it’s time to run the ball with Shady.

Dud- Ryan Matthews- This was suppose to be his breakout season, it hasn’t gone as planned.

Sleeper- CJ Spiller- He will get some garbage points.

Wide Receiver-

Stud-Julio Jones- As predicted here, he’s having a great season and his breakout season continues this week with big fantasy points against the Saints

Dud-Malcolm Floyd- The Chargers offense is in disarray and Floyd will struggle even though the match up suggests a good day.

Sleeper- Jason Avant- He has a big week once a year and this feels like the week for him to go off.

Tight End

Stud- Rob Gronkowski- He will dominate the Bills defense on Sunday.

Dud- Dustin Keller- He will have a long sleepless day in Seattle.

Sleeper- Greg Olsen- The Broncos Defense is fantasy gold for opposing Tight ends.


Stud- Bears- Until proven wrong the Bears defense only scores double digit points

Dud- Panthers- They will yield little resistance to Peyton Manning and the Broncos

Sleeper- Patriots- Fitzgerald will air it out and turn it over all day.

The Playoffs are right around the corner, Good luck in week #10!
