As the weeks go by, your lineup decisions get more and more important. From here on out, every decision—good or bad—is magnified by 10. Let me help you make sure your decision are the good kind. Here are my thoughts on six players you may be considering this Sunday.
Start em if you got em
Dwayne Bowe WR (KC) -The Chiefs have been putting some offense together lately. They are averaging almost 24 points a game in their last three. A big reason for that has been the play of quarterback Tyler Thigpen.
This week KC welcomes the reeling and battered 27th ranked Saints defense to Arrowhead. Look for Bowe to let it all hang out this week with 7-10 catches for 100+ yards and at least one touchdown.
Santana Moss WR (WAS) - Maybe this is obvious by now, but just in case you didn’t catch it, "Mini Moss" has made the 'Boys his beeatch lately. In his last three games against them, he’s grabbed 25 catches for 381 yards and two touchdowns. There is no reason that this should change Sunday night. Look for 100+ yards and one to two touchdowns.
Sit em if you got em
Willis McGahee RB (BAL) - When he's been healthy, Willis has posted some solid RB2 numbers this year. This week, though, don’t look for him to do much of anything against a Giants defense that has only allowed four rushing touchdowns all season. He’ll be lucky to get 50 yards and I doubt there will be a touchdown in his stat line come Monday.
Kerry Collins QB (TEN) - He looked great last week but look for the Titans to return to their roots and run the ball all Sunday. They play a Jaguars team that put Chris Johnson on the map and gave up 104 to Cedric Benson a few weeks ago. Collins will be back to around 175 yards and maybe a touchdown to Scaife.
Sleepers: Don’t be surprised if…
…Jerious Norwood RB (ATL) shares a chunk of the spotlight with the Burner. Look for him to go for 100+ total yards and get into the end zone at least once against a very soft 27th-ranked Denver rush defense.
…Mark Bradley WR (KC) continues his bid for late season uber-sleeper and pulls down stats in the neighborhood of Dwayne Bowe's.
