**Brandon Jacobs is ranked 10th this week in what looks like to be a good matchup for the Giants running game. I see Tom Coughlin handing the ball to Jacobs 20+ times which bodes well for Jacobs owners' who have remained patient.**

**Joseph Addai is ranked as if Donald Brown isn't playing. This is a great matchup for Addai who has a great history against the Texans, and is quietly having a very good fantasy year.**

**Cedric Benson rolled over the Ravens last time they met for 136 Total Yards and a TD. I have a feeling Ray Lewis and the Ravens DEF won't let that happen again. I see Benson going for about 85 yds and a TD if he's lucky.**
