You have to appreciate what Mark Clayton has done this season. He and Sam Bradford are working very well together finding mismatches and putting up all-star fantasy numbers. Will Clayton continue his success? I'm saying yes, so if he is still sitting on the free agent list in your league, then dump whoever just went on IR and get you some Mark Clayton!
Outside of finding the hot waiver wire ticket to fantasy glory, it is important to analyze your players match ups and figure out who your must starts are and who might need to sit the week out.
STUD: High draft pick with a favorable match up this week.
DUD: High or moderate draft pick with an unfavorable match up this week.
SLEEPER: Unknown who has a favorable match up this week.
CREEPER: Know player who has been average recently, but has a favorable match up this week.
Following two tough match ups against the Jets and Bengals, Ray Rice should let loose against the Cleveland Browns who have allowed 259 rushing yards in two games. Rice doesn't make all his points on the ground though. He should catch a few passes out of the backfield and turn them into long gains.
The Broncos defense has been a little above average against the pass and only allowing secondary receiving threats to be successful. Champ Bailey still is a lock to shut down the number one wide out for opposing teams.
Austin Collie, Pierre Garcon, and Dallas Clark should be good options, plus Joseph Addai will have some room to run against Denver's poor run defense.
The Buffalo Bills are an average defense when playing an average offense, but when they face an elite offense like the Patriots they do not have a chance. Expect Fred Taylor to be on the field in Kevin Faulk's spots, then grinding out the clock to finish the game. Should be a good day for him.
LDT is more than just a 3rd down back with the New York Jets. He is being utilized better (and more often) than Shonn Greene. Greene has shown he can't be counted on to catch any passes.
The match up against the Dolphins is interesting as they have been very good against the pass, but up and down against the run. If the Jets ground game can't get going the LDT will be used out of the backfield none-the-less, so he is still a good play.
