3 of 4

Matt Stafford, CHI (66%, 17) – The Bears defense has been much better the last two weeks and Stafford has sucked this year. I’m not just being a bitter Bears fan. Stafford hasn’t throw a TD pass the last two weeks and has 2 INTs and a fumble over that stretch.

Matt Ryan, AZ (61%, 15) – I like Ryan, but don’t like the Falcons O-line at all and the Cardinals blitz more than any team in the league. Ryan could be on his back a lot this week.

Jay Cutler, @DET (50%, 15) – Reverse Jinx! No really, Cutler sucked last week.

Colin Kaepernick, SEA (38%, 16) – He doesn’t even put up good stats against bad defenses. How is Kaepernick going to do against a Seattle D that has Bobby Wagner back and a healthy Kam Chancellor?

Trent Richardson, WAS (49%, 11) – Always. Couldn’t crack 50 rushing yards against a bad Jags run D last week.

Lamar Miler, @NYJ (47%, 14) – Banged up and facing one of the better run defenses in the league. Miller also lost red zone carries to Daniel Thomas last week (gross). I’d be OK starting Miller if I had no one else, but I’m nervous about both the injury and match-up.

Stephen Jackson, AZ (41%, 11) – Still sloooow.

Joique Bell, CHI (40%, 11) – The Bears run defense is 12th in the NFL in yards allowed. That is not a misprint.

Bishop Sankey, @HOU (30%, 10) – I give up. I have had Sankey in my start’em list for like 4-5 weeks in a row and he keeps letting me down. With Shonn Greene back in the mix and stealing red zone carries, I’m done with Sankey.

Doug Martin, CIN (18%, 9) – How long can an RB averaging 2.8 yards per carry keep getting the ball? The Charles Sims era starts this week.
