THE PREP - NFL WEEK 7

Your Byes for week 7 are Buffalo, Cincinnati, New England, NY Giants, Philadelphia,
and San Francisco

San Diego at NY Jets 1:00 PM CBS MetLife Stadium
Start: Ryan Matthews, Rivers, Gates(he's back)
cautious play: Vjack - B.Marsh did just fine on Revis Island and so should Vincent.
Sit - Mike Tolbert and M.Floyd

Start - LT - he is my sleeper in this game...first time out vs old team.
Start - Santonio Holmes - getting in a groove of late.
Sit - M.Sanchez, D.Keller (hasn't done much of late) and Burress(see Keller)

Chicago at Tampa Bay 1:00 PM FOX Wembley Stadium
Kinda cracks me up that the owner of Tampa gives up a home game to parade
his other team, the Bucs over in Soccer country, the home of the team that he
really cares about - Manchester United.
Start - Josh Freeman (looking more like a fantasy QB of late)
also run out the cracker man Earnest Graham again will carry the load for TB
Sit - WR Mike Williams and K.Winslow (neither sniffing the end zone this season)
Sleeper - A.Benn was drafted higher and now seems to be the more explosive WR in TB

Start - Matt Forte, D.Hester and Cautiously run out Jay Cutler who is not a bad fantasy QB.
Sit - The rest of the Bears offense.

Washington at Carolina 1:00 PM FOX Bank of America Stadium
Start - Ryan Torain - consider last week a hiccup. Panthers are bad defending the run and
RT redeems himself this week. S.Moss is due this week so play him.
Sit - Skins TE's (stay off that merri-go-round), T.Hightower
Sleeper: J.Gaffney is not a bad bye week filler this week.

Start: Cam and Steve Smith and G.Olsen
Sit: Carolina RB's....who can figure out why these good backs are being under utilized.
Sleeper for Carolina continues to be B.Lafell - this kid is a home run hitter.

Atlanta at Detroit 1:00 PM FOX Ford Field

The ATL looked alot better last week and I think they will go into the dome and give the Lions
all they can handle in Detriot especially with the Dtown running game without Jahvid Best.

Maurice Morris is the fill in for now for Best who will not play this week and K.Williams is
someone to put on your radar. I still think this team goes out and deals for someone that can
run inside...if they don't they won't go far come playoff time.

Start the usual suspects from the Dtown offense. Keep an eye on Nate Burleson to see if
he can have a 2nd good week...he's a risky play but it really depends on your bye week
troubles. Start Brandon Pettigrew with Scheffler out BP is getting it done with all the looks.
Sit Titus Young.

For the ATL run out Roddy White and expect Roddy White numbers. If Roddy struggles again
this week then there is something up and he may not be healthy. J.Jones could be a scratch again this week...if he plays he is a good wr 3 or flex play...doubt he will go with the bad hammy. Always check your injury reports! Turner has been great so keep playing him.
Sit Tony Gonzalez this week - he has not been doing much.

Seattle at Cleveland 1:00 PM FOX Tickets Cleveland Browns Stadium
Only two people in the Seattle offense are worthy in my opinion of starting this week and they
are Sidney Rice and Marshawn Lynch who I expect to have a solid game and is a good flex
play in week 7. Sit Charlie Whitehurst and the rest of the Seattle offensive players.

Colt McCoy has got it done from a fantasy perspective and is a popular bye week filler QB
this week. I like Colt and his new no1 WR Greg Little vs the Seahags. I do not expect Peyton
Hillis to play this week so if you must start a Cleveland RB Monterio Hardesty can be used as
a low end no.2 - flex starter. TE Ben Watson is a low end start as well. Sit other Cleveland WR's
and the aforementioned P.Hillis even if he plays...I don't trust him at all this week.

Denver at Miami 1:00 PM CBS Tickets Sun Life Stadium
Tim Tebag finally gets his start and hopfully will roll this week and shut up all the ESPN idiots whohave buried him before he's even began his NFL career...lay off the kid! People want to see that desire and heart Tebow brings to a game where alot of people are simply collecting pay checks. Of course if he does succeed you will hear "well it's only Miami", you can bet on that.

Start Tim and I would not be afraid to use McGahee and Knowshon Moreno this week. If you held onto Knowshon all this time you are finally going to see an uptick in his value with Tebow running things for Denver. The passes may be shorter and less frequent, but the offense should move along fine. Now other than Eric Decker I am not sure if I would start any other Denver WR's. I know it's tempting to run out Demaryius Thomas or Eddie Royal now that they seem to be healthy for the first time all year, but if it's me I wait and see and take a look at the targets as we find out who Timmy's favorite WRs are going to be (TIMMAY!)

On the Dolphins side of things - I don't hate Matt Moore here and think he is going to have a nice game along with B.Marsh. Start D.Thomas and stay away from R.Bush unless you are desperate in a ppr format. Sleeper in this one is D.Bess..a decent bye week fill in.

Houston at Tennessee 1:00 PM CBS Tickets LP Field
Great game in the home of country music.
Start Matt Hasselbeck, CJ2K and Nate Washington this week.
Sleeper for the week is Damien Williams(not a huge fan, but don't hate this matchup for him.
Wait and see on Jared Cook - I can see good things out him in the 2nd half.

Sit Schaub - Don't like the other Matt this week on the road vs a fresh Tenn. DST.
ya have to run out A.Foster who is just a man amongst boys out there as he carries the Houston offense. Owen Daniels continues to be a good target in this toned down version of the Houston O. It's hard to recommend either K.Walt or Jacoby Jones...if i have to play one for a bye week fill in it's def. gonna be Jones. Sit B.Tate...may scrounge out a few goal lines but is clearly just a hand cuff now. If you are a Foster owner do not drop Tate!

Kansas City at Oakland 4:05 PM CBS Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum
KC - Start M.Cassell and D.Bowe
Sleeper is Jackie Battle (flex option)
bye week fill in favorite here is Steve Breaston who I am playing in several leagues wk 7. Hopefully Steve won't burn me like Mike Jenkins did a few weeks back when I went out on a limb and started him in several leagues and got jack for it.

For Oakland this is a tough week to play any of the WRs not knowing what we will get out of Carson Palmer early on. I have to say the smart thing to do is avoid all Oakland WRs this week and if you have to play one use Haywood-Bey who is the most consistent of this crew.
It goes without saying always play Run DMC and sit Bush.
Sleeper is K.Boss - With a better QB you will see the TE utilized more especially early on.

Pittsburgh at Arizona 4:05 PM CBS U of Phoenix Stadium
Big Ben and Mike Wallace and Rashard Mendenhall are all must plays this week.
Hines Ward is not a favorite of mine but it is hard to ignore him as a bye week fill in here.
Sit H.Miller, Redman, Dwyer.
Sleeper here is A.Brown...though I can't see playing him...only if you must.

Sit K.Kolb
Start Beanie Wells and Larry Fitzgerald who due to Kolb has been a massive disappointment, but you can't just sit him...he is too much of a freakish athlete so keep running him out.

Green Bay at Minnesota 4:15 PM FOX Mall of America Field
Rodgers set for a monster game...how many weeks do we say it...start all Packer
WR's and just flip a coin if you want to flex one of the RB's cause they obviously do not need them to put up massive points. J.Jones keeps finding the end zone with few looks, but is risky.

Christian Ponder is a Sit this week as he gets his first start in the Wake of the McNabb benching.
I think we will see some nice stuff out of Ponder going forward and I expect to see a WR or two there in Minn. get off the milk carton (Percy!) thanks to having a QB in there that actually has an arm. Only guy in Minnesota I am playing this week is All Day A.P.

St. Louis at Dallas 4:15 PM FOX Cowboys Stadium
I can't look...someone blind fold me so I don't have to watch Dallas' talented WRs run all over this Rams secondary that has made guys like Torrey Smith look like the second coming of Jerry Rice.
Great week to have Romo and his crew...along with Demarco Murray and T.Choice both really nice flex starts this week with Felix nursing a bad ankle sprain.

On the Rams side S.Jackson is a hard working player that gets it done and is still a solid RB 2 as bad as this offense has been. Sam's high ankle sprain worries me and you really cannot start him, but his WR's have some promise this week with the addition of B.Lloyd which will free up some coverage for guys like G.Salas (ppr player) in the slot and Danario Alexander on the outside and in the redzone. If Sam can make it through the game with the ankle these WRs could get some nice garbage time stats.

Indianapolis at New Orleans 8:20 PM NBC Superdome
The O'fer Colts visit a pissed off Saints team which has this one getting ugly quickly.
Like the previous Rams vs Boyz matchup I say Start your Saints. With the Saints things are much more tricky because Drew Brees is an EWS, but he has so many weapons on that team it makes it tough to figure who will get the love week to week.
Start - M.Ingram in the flex (would be shocked if he did not score this week)
Start - Colston, Jimmy Graham and D.Sproles as well.
The only other guy I like is Moore who is risky but a great bye week filler for team enduring bye week hell. Sit - D.Henderson and R.Meachum who's targets are way down. Also Sit PT Cruiser.

MNF - Are You Ready For Some Foo....Wait a sec. political correctness has robbed us of our HANK so forget that. Oh well invite your rowdy friends over, put a pig in the ground and watch ya some MNF.
Baltimore at Jacksonville 8:30 PM ESPN EverBank Field
I expect to see both defenses flying around the football field. Ray Rice and Joe Flacco are real nice plays this week. Ray is not scoring the TDs this year and the Jags do defend the run well, but I can't see him not tasting pay dirt Monday night. A.Boldin got back on track last week so he is a strong no.2 wide out this week and our sleeper is Torrey Smith who I like this week even if L.Evans is back...Lee you are dead to me.

Over in Jags land MJD is such a warrior you must start him, but beware of the Jags offense led by the young QB Gabbert who is going to be a good one, but will show his happy feet this week vs a viscious Ravens DST. I just cannot recommend anyone else on the Jags offensive side unless you employ KR yards in your league then Dej Karim could be a sneaky play.

Goodluck Fantasy Freaks, Geeks, and Peeps...may you roll in week 7. Next week check us out for our HallowScream version of The Prep.
