We're foreseeing shootouts in Arizona, and Miami this week, so deploying your Seattle, Arizona, Tampa Bay, and Miami players might be a good idea .  Well, maybe just Freeman, and Winslow for the Bucs.


QB Matt Hasselbeck, SEA at ARZ

Hasselbeck has had another up and down season so far. In his first game against the Cards, Hasselbeck struggled, only completing 10-of-29 passes.  Don’t expect the same this week in the perfect Arizona climate in what is a revenge game for Seattle.  Hasselbeck has averaged 45 pass attempts the last two weeks, and that’s a trend that won’t change this week.

Projected stats: 31/42, 305 yards, two TD, one INT

WR Michael Crabtree, SF vs CHI

Crabtree dipped down to just 30 yards after recording 50-plus, and 80-plus in his first two games. He's getting more, and more comfortable, and is due for a big game. Alex Smith should be on top of his game against a Bears' defense that just got burned for five passing scores last week. Expect fireworks.

Projected stats: six catches, 95 yards, one TD

RB Ricky Williams, MIA vs TB

Ricky Williams will excel against the Bucs.  After all, look at what Ahman Green did in limited carries last week in TB as the RB2 for the Packers (seven touches for 55 yards).  Williams will get far more touches than Green did last week, and Miami has the best established running back duo in the NFL.

Projected stats: 12 rushes, 98 yards, one TD, three catches, 45 yards

TE Kellen Winslow, TB at MIA

Winslow was able to show some of his athleticism last week against the Packers, and seems to be developing some chemistry with rookie Josh Freeman.  Winslow’s value has started to go up with Freeman’s promotion, and he should have a productive day.

Projected stats: six catches, 76 yards, one TD
