THE PREP - Wk 3 Quick Slant Edition

In this week's Prep we give you some quick hit information for each week 3 game. For specific line up questions Sunday Morning from 9a-game time head on over to facebook at www.facebook.com/showfantasysports and chat. We are on there ever week so friend show fantasy sports or Wes Ramsey asap! Good luck this week.

NYG at Philly
Start Eagles across the board including Mike Vick (cleared to play) - last week showed us Maclin is officially cleared to get back into our fantasy lineups! Roll with Ahmad Bradshaw on the Giants side vs those Eagle LB's.
Sit - Eli Manning

Pats at Bills
Offensive fiesta!
Gronk gains value with the Hernandez injury. I like Branch to get his first TD this week and the Law Firm to get a TD or two as well. On the Buffalo side don't be afraid to start Freddy Jax along with Stevie Johnson and on a lesser note, sleeper sensation David Nelson.
Injury Note - S Pat Chung is also out for the pats.

Baltimore at Rams
A.Boldin should be big today with no Lee Evans (well last week he was on the field and there was still no Lee Evans!) The Rams cannot physically match up with Boldin.
Sit - S.Jackson and Cadillac Williams vs that Baltimore D.

Packers at Bears
I think the Bears play well today in this rivalry...M.Forte is good play this week and on the Green Bay side I like J.Starks to continue his emergence and J.Finley to get his first score of the year. Sit Ryan Grant.

Jags at Panthers
It's make or break for DeAngelo Williams in this game cause he is falling off our fantasy radar if he does not do something today. I am playing him....I like him this week. Stay on the Steve Smith train as long as it is rolling.
On the Jags side MJD should do well and Mike Thomas gains some value this week with Blaine Gabbert under center....Mercedes Lewis as well if he plays.
Sit - Don't like J.Stewart to repeat what he did last week.

Frisco at Cincy
Be careful with Benson today...his start is not as obvious as it may seem as the Niners have been stopping the run. Sure, Play him, but don't expect monster numbers. Sit Crabtree...he is back but I doubt he plays alot.
I like Andy Dalton today...is catching on to the league. Start AJ Green ....I say it every week..this kid is good!!!

Miami at Cleveland
Play Colt McCoy - nice home matchup for him.
Hillis has been sick all week, but he is going to play...but will be spelled abit more by Hardesty this week.
B.Marshall is back scoring TD's this season...so those of you who drafted him later than he should have gone...congrats...nice call!

Lions at Vikings
Stafford and his boys...rolling! Start 'em...don't have a great history playing in Minnesota, but these are not your momma's Vikings...these guys pretty much suck outside of AP...who may struggle this week vs. that Lions front.

Houston at New Orleans
Start Ben Tate - Foster may play but not much...what a freakin' nightmare for owners. Ward is out this week.
On the Saints side we are waiting on Mark Ingram to get more touches...Sproles eating into his playing time...Mark can catch the ball he is just not getting the opportunity. I like Mark Ingram as a flex play this week for example as a replacement for Beanie Wells who may not go this week. Sit the aforementioned Foster and J.Jones and L.Moore (Meach is your best bet with Henderson this week).

Denver at Tennessee
Don't look now but Matt Hasselbeck is fantasy viable once again. CJ2K showing zero burst the last few weeks....I am playing him this week praying for a Maclin like return to form. Britt has been a monster and should play, but check the Sunday AM reports.
Sit -Knowshon Moreno - may be back today but McGahee is the back to play for the Broncos today. B.Lloyd should be back so roll him out with Decker as a good play as well.

NYJ at Oakland Raiders
Sit D.Moore - love the rookie WR, but this is a horrible match up for him. McFadden has been great so play him regardless of match up. Question of the week again is...can S.Greene emerge in this Jets backfield...avoid starting him unless you are left with no real option. Start Sanchez, Keller and Santonio Holmes(if healthy).

KC at SD
Paper or Plastic? Matthews or Tolbert? This question will haunt owners all week now that Matthews seems to finally be coming along. You can play both this week vs. the hapless Chiefs. If you can only play one...my gut tells me Matthews in week 3.
For KC...maybe D.Bowe gets his groove on in garbage time and if you have to start a Chief RB...go with McCluster especially in pprs. Antonio Gates is out!!!

Cards and Seahawks
S.Rice is a go today. That doesn't mean that Jackson can get him the ball. Will M.Lynch emerge from fantasy oblivion...I think so...that's what happens when you drop a guy like this...he burns you. I have seen him on alot of wires this week. If he doesn't show up...leave him there! On the Cards side Beanie Wells may not play which means they will pretty much throw every down so there is an upgrade for Kolb here and our man Larry Legend as well. Fitzgerald set for a monster day.

ATL at Tampa Bay
Would the real TBay please stand up! Today there will be no 4th quarter heroics if the Bucs screw around the first 3 quarters. I like Mike Williams to come back on the scene today and my favorite player in this matchup is M.Turner ripping up the Tampa two between the tackles. L.Blount should get a heavy workload as well.

Pitt at Indy
Not looking good for Indy here.
Sit J.Addai. Sit D.Clark(he may not play) Play Wayne who will be active in garbage time.
Mendenhall and Wallace should be big time money in this one.

Cowboys vs Redskins
Romo is going to play...Dez may as well. Austin is out. Felix is going to go, but I would sit his butt down with that separated shoulder issue. Witten is the guy to play in Dallas today.
On the Skins side I like S.Moss who has notoriously killed the Cowboys.

Tune in next week when we return to our extensive predictions for every game.
