The dust has settled, your draft is over and now comes the painstakingly hard part of choosing who to actually start in Week One. Jay Cutler and Percy Harvin look to be locks while fantasy sleepers like Justin Forsett and Mike Wallace may be better served on your bench. Lets take a look as to why...

QB Start:

Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears

His 26 interceptions in 2009 are not easily forgotten, but the gunslinger should abuse an ultra-thin Detroit secondary. The Lions finished 32nd against the pass last season and the talent level has not improved. Chris Houston as a number one cornerback? That's a scary thought.

Chicago scored 85 points in the two meetings in '09, with Cutler throwing for 417 yards, six touchdowns, and zero picks. Offensive coordinator Mike Martz should have an air attack in store for week one.

QB Sit:

Chad Henne, Miami Dolphins

The Bills defensive backfield possesses a combination of depth and speed that vaulted them to the second rated pass defense in 2009. Chad Henne is all too familiar, producing a 42.5 QB rating, three INT game in Buffalo last year.

Fortunately for him, and unfortunately for his owners, he has two workhorse running backs by his side against a notoriously poor Bills run defense (3-4 scheme or not). Despite his explosive potential, Henne had six games below 200 yards in '09. Wait for a better spot.

RB Start:
