Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens - Thursday 8:25pm

Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger - - The offensive line continues to struggle to protect him and the running game is struggling. That may lead to him throwing it more, though the Bengals pass rush could make it tough on him. Does have a good history against the Bengals though.

Le'Veon Bell - - Still out and it sounds like it could be a month.
LeGarrette Blount - - The injury to Vereen and the continued issues holding onto the ball for Ridley could open the door for Blount to get some touches. Could surprise, but probably a guy to just keep an eye on or stash on the bench. Not yet an option worthy of starting.

Antonio Brown - - Has big play ability and if Big Ben gets some time to throw, Brown could make them pay by turning something small into something big. With the running game struggling, the Steelers may turn to the passing game a little more this week.
Lance Moore - - Was quiet last week, but given his track record, he certainly deserves a shot to redeem himself. A solid matchup this week should help his cause.
Darrius Heyward-Bey - - Looks like he is still fighting with Hilton to see which one will step up and be the No. 2 fantasy option at WR. Luck will definitely spread the wealth, so could be inconsistent this season, although likely will have a nice game here and there.

Heath Miller - - Expected to sit out with an injured knee, so I'd recommend passing on him.
David Paulson - - Even with Miller likely out, he probably doesn't have much fantasy value. I'd strongly and I mean strongly recommend other options, just about any other option.

Shaun Suisham - - The offense struggled last week and this week they face arguably a better defense, on the road to boot. That could mean Suisham has to step up to score.

Pittsburgh Steelers - - The defense still has some playmakers and it seems they almost always make a play against the Bengals. But playing on MNF at home could really have the Bengals flying high.

Baltimore Ravens

Joe Flacco - - Coming off a pretty big first game, although he was forced to air it out much more than usual due to Manning running wild, errr, passing wild. Likely will use Rice more this week, though he certainly is capable of lighting up the Browns.

Ray Rice - - Should be very busy this week and faces a team he has lit up plenty of times during his career. No need to think long on this one. Just plug him in.
Bernard Pierce - - Looks like he should continue to get some touches and with a solid matchup, he could surprise. Dealing with an injured thigh though, not to mention he really isn't touching the ball enough to make him an ideal option.
Justin Forsett - - Saw some action last week, but likely won't get enough touches to really have much fantasy value.

Torrey Smith - - Has big play ability, but this week he likely will have his hands full with Joe Haden blanketing him. That likely will mean fewer targets than usual, although as he has proven time and again, he can make a big play any week.
Steve Smith - - Coming off a good game and with an easier matchup this week, he should be able to keep it going and hopefully put up even better numbers this week.
Marlon Brown - - The rookie started the season off nicely and likely will get some chances to prove his worth with Jones sidelined for a month or so. With Haden looking to lock down Smith, he could definitely benefit and surprise.

Owen Daniels - - Coming off a big game, but is dealing with some injury issues this week. Watch his status closely and if he can play, certainly merits running out there.

Justin Tucker - - The offense should be able to move the ball on the Browns pretty well, although with them still trying to find their groove this season and the Browns having a solid defense, Tucker could be key.

Baltimore Ravens - - The defense struggled last week, although this week they face a much, much easier opponent. One that is coming off a tough week in which they turned the ball over often.

Prediction: Baltimore Ravens 23 - Pittsburgh Steelers 13


Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills - Sunday 1:00pm

Miami Dolphins

Ryan Tannehill - - Coming off a solid game and this week he has another solid matchup to exploit. With the big play ability of Wallace in the mix, it should help open up the rest of the offense and make him a solid option this week.

Lamar Miller - - Talk about a brutal start to the season. Definitely a disappointment. A good matchup this week could help him bounce back, although after last week's stink bomb and Thomas expected to see some touches, it may be wise to play it safe and look elsewhere if you have that luxury.
Knowshon Moreno - - Until one of the RBs steps forward as the main option, it may be best to just hold off on using any of them, unless your options are limited.
Daniel Thomas - - Found the end zone last week, so he had some value. The RB situation is still a work in progress and he still is probably the 2nd option, unless Miller continues to struggle. Faces a defense that can be run on, so he certainly could surprise if you are already thin at RB and need to gamble on him.

Mike Wallace - - Was quiet in his debut as a Dolphin, although this week he likely won't be quite as locked down, so he should be able to bounce back and get in your good graces again. He was frustrated with his lack of targets, so the Dolphins may try to make sure they make their high-priced addition happy.
Brian Hartline - - Coming off a big game as his familiarity with Tannehill payed dividends. With defenses now forced to worry about Wallace's big play ability, he could certainly benefit and be a solid fantasy option this season.
Brandon Gibson - - With the Browns taking away Wallace, he stepped up nicely. Hard to imagine he will do that consistently though, so it may be best to explore other options.

Charles Clay - - Coming off a solid game, although I'd like to see him do that a little more often before considering him fantasy worthy.

Caleb Sturgis - - The offense was solid last week and with a solid matchup this week, Sturgis should get some scoring chances. Still would be nice to have a more proven option at kicker though.

Miami Dolphins - - The defense is coming off a good game, although this week will be a little tougher as they face a tougher task against a good Colts offense.

Buffalo Bills

E.J. Manuel - - Coming off a solid game and with a nice matchup this week, he could certainly be a pleasant surprise. Although still hard to trust rookie QBs, especially early in the season.

C.J. Spiller - - Didn't live up to the hype last week, although he is more than capable of making a big play or two. A nice matchup should help his cause, although it appears that F-Jax will continue to steal some touches. Nice upside this week.
Fred Jackson - - Coming off a nice game as the veteran showed he is still a capable producer. Spiller will likely still be the better option most weeks, but a solid matchup this week could allow him to produce again if you need to give him a nod this week.
Bryce Brown - - Could see his touches increase as the season goes to help keep McCoy from wearing down, especially considering the fast pace of the offense and the amount of times they are running McCoy. Probably not getting enough touches yet to merit starting him though.

Robert Woods - - The rookie made his only catch count as it was an 18 yard touchdown. A good matchup this week could help him keep it going, although it would be nice to see him more involved in the passing game before relying on him.
Mike Williams - - Another week, another touchdown as he continues to be a strong red zone option. Faces a defense that can be thrown on, so once again, has some good upside and TD potential.
T.J. Graham - - Likely won't see many touches, so has very little, if any, fantasy value.

Scott Chandler - - Manuel showed he will look his way, so he does have some upside. Although with the other options at Manuel's disposal, he is liable to be pretty hit-or-miss.

Dan Carpenter - - The offense was decent last week and should get better as the season progresses. A solid matchup this week should allow him to get some scoring chances this week.

Buffalo Bills - - The defense made some plays, including a touchdown return. This week they face a good offense that typically protects the ball.

Prediction: Buffalo Bills 20 - Miami Dolphins 17


Atlanta Falcons at Cincinnati Bengals - Sunday 1:00pm

Atlanta Falcons

Matt Ryan - - Put up good numbers, although not quite what was expected of him to open the season. A nice matchup this week, with White a week closer to be fully recovered from injury, should only help him keep piling up the fantasy points.

Steven Jackson - - Could have a little more motivation against his former team, who can be run on. The Falcons may help him pay back his former team by giving him a few extra touches and scoring chances. Just too much upside to pass up.
Jacquizz Rodgers - - Looks like he will see a very limited role in the offense, so I'd hold off on using him at this time.

Julio Jones - - Pretty good start to the season last week and with another good matchup this week, don't over think it, just start him and be happy you have him on your side.
Roddy White - - Was more of a decoy last week and the ankle is still bothering him. Could take some time for him to get back into the mix. A good matchup this week should help his cause, but definitely a bigger risk than usual. Still has the upside to go off if your options are limited.
Harry Douglas - - Coming off a solid game and with White still banged up, he could surprise again with a favorable matchup this week. Still hard to rely on him considering his history of extreme inconsistency.
Drew Davis - - Likely won't see enough action to merit starting, even with White still banged up.


Matt Bryant - - The offense should bounce back this week against an iffy Rams defense, which should allow Bryant to be in for a busy day.

Atlanta Falcons - - The defense may be headed in the right direction, although they still have a ways to go. Face a young Rams offense, though one that is coming off a solid performance and has some play makers.

Cincinnati Bengals

Andy Dalton - - Likely will have his hands full this week against a solid Steelers defense, but when you have A.J. Green, you are always a threat to make something happen.

Giovani Bernard - - His role in the offense is still not big enough to consider him ready for prime time, although he is capable of making a big play if he gets a chance.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis - - The law firm found the end zone last week, but needs to step it up if he wants to hold off the rookie. Steelers likely will be tough to run on, so still a risky option. A TD is certainly a possibility though which would make him worthwhile.

A.J. Green - - Coming off a huge game and you can expect Dalton to continue to force it Green's way. He has given the Steelers fits during his career. He is pretty much a given at starter every week he suits up.
Marvin Jones - - Likely won't see enough touches to consider him worth starting.
Mohamed Sanu - - With defenses keying on Green, he could cause them some troubles, especially in the red zone. But still trying to get back in the groove he had prior to injury that ended his 2012 season.

Jermaine Gresham - - Was solid last week as he continues to hold the rookie at bay. Though Eifert could continue to cut into his chances. The experience could help his cause playing against a solid defense under the lights of MNF.
Tyler Eifert - - The rookie put on a solid showing to open his career as Dalton got both TEs involved. Can they turn into a poor man's Gronk and pre-trouble Hernandez? Not the ideal matchup this week, but he isn't a horrible option if you need him.

Mike Nugent - - The Steelers defense could make it tough for the Bengals to finish drives and force them to settle for Nugent FG attempts.

Cincinnati Bengals - - The defense struggled last week and did not sack Cutler once. This week they will look to bounce back against a Steelers o-line that has struggled to protect Big Ben and gave up five sacks last week.

Prediction: Atlanta Falcons 31 - Cincinnati Bengals 20


New Orleans Saints at Cleveland Browns - Sunday 1:00pm

New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees - - Expect him to continue to be one of the elite QBs in the game and has a good history against the Bucs, so don't think about it, just start him.

Pierre Thomas - - Put up some solid numbers and should continue to have his usual role in the offense. Can be up and down, though certainly an option that you can use if you are in a pinch.
Mark Ingram - - Was quiet last week, but should get his touches and likely would get the call at the goal line, assuming they run it in, so he has upside.

Marques Colston - - Coming off a good game in the opener and while Revis will likely see some time on him, the Saints are liable to try to keep him away from him at times. Plus Brees is not afraid to throw it toward Revis Island, who is still working himself back into form.
Kenny Stills - - The rookie could be a big play threat, but he may be the next Devery Henderson who has a big game here and there, but is non-existent most of the time.
Nick Toon - - Doesn't appear the ex-Badger will be involved in the offense enough to have fantasy value.

Jimmy Graham - - Didn't have his usually large numbers to open the season, but still found the end zone and is capable of going off any week. If you are lucky enough to have him, plug him into your lineup and keep him there, regardless of the matchup.


New Orleans Saints - - The defense showed some improvement and this week they face an offense that is not in the same class as the Falcons, though one that typically does a good job of taking care of the ball.

Cleveland Browns


Ben Tate - - Foster is still the main man, but Tate should continue to see plenty of touches to keep Arian fresh and healthy. With a good matchup this week, he could be a nice option if you are in a bind at RB.

Miles Austin - - Coming off a nice game as he led the way with 10 receptions. Although with Bryant unlikely to be quiet in back-to-back weeks, his touches are liable to slip. Still should be a solid option at least.
Nate Burleson - - Coming off a nice game in return from injury and with a good matchup this week, he could certainly keep it going and be back to his old self.
Travis Benjamin - - Capable of making a big play, although he will likely be all or nothing, with probably most of the weeks closer to the nothing variety.

Jordan Cameron - - Coming off a big week and appears to be turning into the Browns go to receiver, at least until Gordon is back and then we will see. After what Thomas did to the Ravens last week and what he did last week to the Dolphins, he is probably a great option to take a chance on this week.
Jim Dray - - Doesn't appear that Palmer will utilize him enough to have a viable fantasy TE option in Arizona this year either.

Billy Cundiff - - The offense looks like it will take some time to get going. Facing a defense that was torched last week, although one that does have some talent and should be a pretty solid defense. That could be good or bad news for Cundiff this week.

Cleveland Browns - - The defense was solid early and then cooled off in the 2nd half. Will likely have their hands full this week with a solid offense that will likely take good care of the ball.

Prediction: New Orleans Saints 27 - Cleveland Browns 16


Dallas Cowboys at Tennessee Titans - Sunday 1:00pm

Dallas Cowboys

Tony Romo - - Coming off a big game, even without much from Bryant. The bruised ribs should not be a factor and even if the matchup is not great, he has too many weapons at his disposal and likely will be busy again this week.
Brandon Weeden - - Not the kind of start to the season the Browns were looking for, although the job is still firmly his. The Ravens were destroyed last week, but I can barely use Weeden's name in the same sentence as Peyton Mann...Well you get the picture. I'd make him prove himself before considering him.

DeMarco Murray - - Got plenty of touches to open the season and his receptions were huge in PPR leagues. Should continue to see plenty of touches and while the Chiefs run defense appears improved, they still have a ways to go.
Joseph Randle - - Rookie still nothing more than a guy to sit on the bench and hope he gets a chance at some point.

Dez Bryant - - Started out slowly, but I would not be concerned over one bad week. He is dealing with a sprained foot now, although he is expected to play. When he is healthy, he starts.
Terrance Williams - - The rookie showed some flashes, although he is still probably the 4th or 5th option in the passing game, which likely makes him nothing more than bench fodder.
Dwayne Harris - - While he likely will see some looks, they will likely be too few to consider him a worthy fantasy option.

Jason Witten - - Another huge game for Witten, who should be quite busy almost every week this season. Just keep plugging in you talented tight end.

Dan Bailey - - The Chiefs defense looks much improved, although the Cowboys have a lot more weapons and should be able to move the ball on them. Although if they are significantly improved, the Cowboys could be forced to settle for some FG attempts.

Dallas Cowboys - - The defense is coming off a huge game, although the Giants gifted some of the mistakes. The Chiefs appear to be improved on offense and Alex Smith typically is a guy that doesn't make many mistakes. Still worth running them back out there after last week's performance.

Tennessee Titans

Jake Locker - - Was pretty quiet last week and with a tough matchup this week, he likely will be quiet again. With so many other great options out there, you can't seriously be this desperate for a starting QB.

Shonn Greene - - Dealing with an injured knee and since he likely has a limited role and a tough matchup this week, it is probably wise to avoid him.
Dexter McCluster - - Still not being targeted enough to consider him worthy of a spot in your starting lineup. Maybe his role will expand as the season progresses.
Jackie Battle - - Found the end zone last week as Greene was injured. Could get a chance again this week since he is still banged up, but faces a tough Texans run defense, so probably not worth the trouble.

Kendall Wright - - Got off to a slow start and with a tough matchup this week, it is probably a good idea to look elsewhere for WR help.
Nate Washington - - Was the leading receiver last week, which wasn't much to write home about. With a tough matchup this week, it may be wise to just avoid the Titans passing game entirely this week.
Justin Hunter - - The rookie is not ready for the fantasy world, so continue to pass on him.

Delanie Walker - - Walker could turn into a nice option down the line, but it will likely take him some time. With a poor matchup this week, it may be best to explore other options.


Tennessee Titans - - The defense was pretty solid last week, although this week they face an offense that has plenty of healthy weapons to utilize.

Prediction: Dallas Cowboys 24 - Tennessee Titans 13


Arizona Cardinals at New York Giants - Sunday 1:00pm

Arizona Cardinals

Carson Palmer - - Good start to the season, at least fantasy wise and with Fitzgerald at his disposal, he could go off any week. Likely will be forced to play keep up this week, so likely will air it out early and often.

Andre Ellington - - The rookie may see some touches, but probably not enough of them to consider him much of an option.
Jonathan Dwyer - - The RB situation is a mess, so they re-signed Dwyer, who at least knows the offense. Still hard to recommend any of them at this time.

Larry Fitzgerald - - There may not be a happier guy in all of Arizona after the addition of Palmer, who knows who to get the ball to. Likely will be airing it out often, so he should be busy again this week. Watch that hamstring though, which could limit him and possibly even sideline him. He's a gamer, so I expect him to play.
Michael Floyd - - The youngster is starting to show off his talents with a real passing threat at QB. Cardinals will likely look to air it out early and often again this week as they play keep up.
Ted Ginn Jr. - - As expected, it does not appear that he will have much of a role in the passing game.

John Carlson - - Does not appear like he will see much, if any, action as a receiver. Move along please. Nothing to see here.

Jay Feely - - The offense appears to be improved and should be able to move the ball and get him scoring chances. If they can keep it close, his leg could be key down the stretch.

Arizona Cardinals - - The defense does have some play makers and returners that can make plays, so they are always capable of producing, although this week's matchup is less than ideal.

New York Giants

Eli Manning - - Coming off a huge game, although the three picks didn't help his cause. This week he is liable to air it out often again to try and keep up with Peyton and his crew.

Rashad Jennings - - Looks like he will see very little action, so not a guy that merits considering for your starting lineup.
David Wilson - - Yanked last week since he lost two fumbles. Needs to secure the ball or he could turn into a major bust. With Scott banged up and Wilson the more dynamic back, he should be the main guy this week. The Giants may air it out this week, especially late as they play keep up. He is a capable receiver though.

Victor Cruz - - Coming off a huge game and definitely needs to be back in the lineup, especially since the Giants may have to air it out again this week.
Rueben Randle - - Coming off a big game as well as the Giants had three receivers go over 100 yards and again this week they may be forced to air it out heavily.


Josh Brown - - The offense should be able to move the ball, though the Broncos defense could make it tough to finish some drives and force Brown to kick some FGs.

New York Giants - - The defense struggled last week and this week they face the hottest offense in the league, even if it is only after one week. Good luck with that.

Prediction: New York Giants 27 - Arizona Cardinals 24


Jacksonville Jaguars at Washington Redskins - Sunday 1:00pm

Jacksonville Jaguars

Chad Henne - - Looks like he could get the start and does have a solid matchup. Still hard to rely on the struggling Jaguars offense at this point.

Toby Gerhart - - Easy one here. He is nothing but a handcuff to ADP. Do not consider starting him.
Jordan Todman - - In the same situation as Forsett, so I'd apply the same logic.

Cecil Shorts - - Dealing with a groin injury, so you may want to play it safe and bench him. Although he does have a good matchup and if Henne gets the start, Shorts could definitely benefit as they hooked up regularly in the past.
Ace Sanders - - Move along, nothing to see here at this time.
Mike Brown - - I can't in good conscience recommend him, regardless of who starts at QB.


Josh Scobee - - After the offense put up a goose egg last week, it is hard to rely on any piece of the offense. A good matchup should help some though.

Jacksonville Jaguars - - The defense got the only points last week, but will likely be in for a long season. Maybe they can take advantage of facing a rookie QB.

Washington Redskins

Robert Griffin III - - Coming off a big game, at least after he knocked off the rust in the 1st half. This week he faces a defense that struggled last week and an offense that will likely put up plenty of points again. May run a little more every week, which should help his fantasy value as well.

Alfred Morris - - A touchdown last week saved him from a pretty down night. A good matchup this week should help his cause and it does appear he will continue to be the main option at RB.
Roy Helu - - So far, it does not appear like he will see more action. You never know when Shanahan could change his mind, but at this time, there is no reason to gamble on Helu.

Pierre Garcon - - Put up solid numbers last week and should continue to get plenty of looks from RG3. Will Hankerson continue to hog TDs or will Garcon get back into the mix? A good matchup this week should allow him to keep it going.
DeSean Jackson - - Coming off a huge week and looks like he could really fit into the new offense nicely. Still want to see a little more from him before considering him an every week no brainer, but the future does look bright. Good matchup this week.
Andre Roberts - - Coming off a good game and with the Cardinals liable to be playing catch up this week, he could be a nice surprise again.
Santana Moss - - The veteran is still capable of getting it done, but likely will be a little more inconsistent. A good matchup does give him some upside, although he is probably best suited as a bye week fill-in at this point.
Leonard Hankerson - - Coming off a huge game. Every year there are guys that bust out and then fall off the map. Will Hankerson be one of those guys or is he taking the next step in his career? With a good matchup this week, it could be worth the gamble if you really need to go there. Ideally you'll watch and learn with him.
Aldrick Robinson - - RG3 spreads the wealth, but he likely will be pretty far down the food chain, so I would recommend forgetting about him.


Kai Forbath - - The offense knocked off some rust and looks like it should be pretty solid this season, which should lean to scoring chances for Forbath. Can't afford to miss the easy ones like the did last week or he could be out of a job.

Washington Redskins - - The defense will again have their hands full this week as they face one of the better offenses in the league, one that typically does a good job taking care of the ball.

Prediction: Washington Redskins 27 - Jacksonville Jaguars 13


New England Patriots at Minnesota Vikings - Sunday 1:00pm

New England Patriots

Tom Brady - - Opened up the season with a solid game, at least by Brady's standards. This week he faces a team that he should have success against, although he is likely to be without his two top receivers. But he usually prevails and finds a way to get the job done.

Stevan Ridley - - Coming off a horrid week as he again put the ball on the turf. He needs to protect the ball or he could find himself buried on the bench, even though the options at RB are limited. A good matchup this week should help his cause, so I'd give him a chance to redeem himself.

Julian Edelman - - His familiarity with Brady came in quite handy last week. He does have a history of big games and then disappearing for times. Although the limited number of proven options could definitely benefit him, especially if Amendola is out as expected.
Aaron Dobson - - The rookie is battling a hamstring injury, which likely will limit his chances to produce. Thus you can continue to forget about him.
Danny Amendola - - Sounds like the short turnaround will force him to sit out this week with an injured groin. If he can go, he certainly merits a start after last week's performance. But watch his situation closely and with his injury history, it is more than likely he sits out.
Brandon LaFell - - Was nowhere to be found last week. He has done it in the past and is liable to get it going again. A solid matchup this week could help his cause, but after last week's goose egg, it may be ideal to look elsewhere.
Josh Boyce - - Maybe injuries open up a chance for him. I certainly wouldn't recommend gambling on him though.
Kenbrell Thompkins - - The rookie likely will be inconsistent, although the injury to Amendola could force Brady to look his way more this week, which could make him a worthwhile starting option if you need to give him a shot.

Rob Gronkowski - - Looks like he will be out another week, although if he somehow made a miraculous turnaround, by all means, plug him in. Unlikely that he will be ready to roll this week.
Michael Hoomanawanui - - Injuries could open him up to a larger role in the offense. Still this is probably too large of a reach.

Stephen Gostkowski - - Injuries continue to ravage the Patriots offense. With Brady at the helm, they should still move the ball. The issues could come in the red zone, which may force them to settle for some FG attempts.

New England Patriots - - The defense didn't exactly light it up against a rookie QB making his debut. This week they face another rookie QB, although this one at home, which can only help. Especially when you consider that Smith does not have the talented weapons on offense that Manuel had at his disposal.

Minnesota Vikings

Christian Ponder - - Struggled some last week and the Bears pass defense should be pretty solid, although they had their issues with A.J. Green. The Vikings don't have an A.J. Green though, so may have a tough go this week.

Adrian Peterson - - The Bears defense looks to be pretty good again this season, although ADP has had more than enough success against them during his career, so I would not hesitate to start him. Just plug him in and forget about him.

Greg Jennings - - Still working his way into the mix with his new team. Has the talent to get it done, now just needs the opportunities. Has the potential to produce, but still a risky option as he gets on the same page as his new QB.
Cordarrelle Patterson - - The rookie is not involved in the passing game enough at this time to consider him a viable starting option.
Jerome Simpson - - Coming off a big game and the familiarity with Ponder may help his cause. Considering his lack of production as a Viking, it is probably not a wise move to start him just yet.
Jarius Wright - - Really hope you don't need to reach this far for WR help. Just say no.
Lestar Jean - - Does not appear that he will get many touches, so I'd continue to forget about him.

Kyle Rudolph - - Started off slowly, but certainly has the talent to get the job done. The matchup this week, not so much. There are worse options out there, so if you need to go with him, don't be too shy.

Blair Walsh - - The Bears defense will likely make it tough on the Vikings to find the end zone, which could force them to rely on the leg of Walsh.

Minnesota Vikings - - The defense struggled out of the gate and while the Bears o-line has a history of giving up a lot of sacks, they kept Cutler upright last week against a strong Bengals pass rush.

Prediction: New England Patriots 30 - Minnesota Vikings 16


Detroit Lions at Carolina Panthers - Sunday 1:00pm

Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford - - Coming off a huge start to the season and faces a struggling defense this week, so he should be able to keep it going. Just keep plugging him in.

Reggie Bush - - Huge start to his Lions career and while he is a little nicked up, he should be ready to go full bore. May not get the goal line carries, but the Lions want to get him the ball in space. Could be a very nice option in this offense, especially in PPR leagues.
Joique Bell - - We have a goal line guy sighting. Certainly helps that he should have a good matchup this week and could get a chance or two again. Plus the Lions are getting him touches at other times, so he should be a solid backup and spot starter.
Mikel Leshoure - - Looks like his value is pretty much dead in the water.

Calvin Johnson - - Was kept in check last week. It is rare that Megatron is bottled up in back-to-back weeks, so expect him to go off this week. No need to panic, just plug him in and enjoy the show.
Golden Tate - - Has the potential to get it done, although not the ideal matchup this week and who knows which of the Seahawks WRs will step up this week.
Kevin Ogletree - - Likely won't be targeted much, so it should be safe to completely forget about him.
Ryan Broyles - - Was nowhere to be found last week, so I'd continue to hold off on the youngster and wait until if/when he proves he is worthy.

Brandon Pettigrew - - Slow start to the season with some costly mistakes. But in this offense, he should get it going. A good matchup this week could certainly help him start this week.


Detroit Lions - - The defense has some play makers and could benefit from facing Carson Palmer, who has been known to struggle with turnovers, including a pair of them last week.

Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton - - Started the season off slowly, but this week he goes from facing one of the top defenses in the league to one of bottom ones, which should help him get back to his usually strong performing self.

DeAngelo Williams - - Did a decent job against a tough run defense last week, although ad a crucial fumble. A much better matchup this week should help him produce nice numbers this week.
Mike Tolbert - - D-Will is the main man and while he should get some touches, he likely won't get enough to have any real fantasy value. Although if he got the call at the goal line, he may just have some.
Kenjon Barner - - Still banged up and even if he can go, he is liable to play a very limited role, if any.

Jerricho Cotchery - - Found the end zone last week as he continues to do a good job finding the end zone. Unfortunately when he doesn't, he often struggles to produce. Though it appears he will be used a little more frequently this year with Wallace gone.
Jason Avant - - In the same boat as Cooper, so probably not quite ready to be started, but keep your eyes on this offense to see if defenses adjust and the offense gets more guys involved.

Greg Olsen - - Continues to see plenty of looks from Cam and should be busy again this week. Should benefit from a much better matchup this week.
Ed Dickson - - Looks like Clark will be the better of the receiving options, so you should look away from Dickson at this time.

Graham Gano - - The offense should be able to get it going this week against a Bills defense that will likely continue to struggle. Thus Gano should get plenty of scoring chances.

Carolina Panthers - - Didn't produce much fantasy wise, although they played a pretty solid overall game. This week they face an offense being led by a rookie QB, although one that does have some capable weapons.

Seattle Seahawks at San Diego Chargers - Sunday 4:05pm

Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson - - Went over 300 yards last week and the Packers did have success through the air last week. While the matchup is a tough one, he did throw four touchdowns in last season's meeting in Seattle, so he likely is confident.
Terrelle Pryor - - Coming off a big game in his debut, especially thanks to his running ability which could really drive his fantasy value. This week he faces a struggling defense, so could certainly be able to do it again. Expect him to be pretty up and down though, but this could be a week to gamble on him, especially in leagues that reward running QBs.

Marshawn Lynch - - Faces a tough run defense this week, but he did go monster, or should I say beast, on them the last time he faced them. He is a stud for a reason, unless your RBs are just super crazy loaded, he starts every week.
Robert Turbin - - Not expected to get many touches, so it should be pretty safe to bypass him again this week.

Doug Baldwin - - Was the leading receiver last week, but this is a new week and may bring a different leader. Not the ideal matchup, although after last week you could consider him.
Jermaine Kearse - - Found the end zone last week and Wilson will spread the wealth. Not the best matchup this week and it is probably best to see a little more from him before considering him for your team.
Sidney Rice - - Dealing with a knee injury and with a tough matchup this week, it is probably in your best interest to explore other options.

Zach Miller - - Has been up and down as a Seahawks, more down than up it seems. Probably not the best TE option out there.

Steven Hauschka - - This defensive battle could be won by the kickers and it helps to be the guy kicking with the home field advantage.

Seattle Seahawks - - The defense has the home field advantage, though will have their hands full with a talented offense that typically limits their mistakes.

San Diego Chargers

Philip Rivers - - Coming off a four touchdown performance and if the Eagles offense keeps clicking this week, he could be forced to air it out a little more this week.

Ryan Mathews - - Had a big touchdown catch to start the scoring and showed some hard running. Expected to carry the bulk of the load, although a few more touches would be nice. A good matchup this week and the Chargers may try to control the clock and keep the Eagles offense on the sidelines.
Danny Woodhead - - Had some key catches, but didn't touch the ball near enough to consider him ready for the fantasy world. That certainly could come as the season progresses.
Donald Brown - - With Ballard lost for the season, he will likely get some touches and will battle with Bradshaw. Likely will be the 2nd option with limited touches, unless Bradshaw fails to step it up.

Keenan Allen - - Didn't see a ball thrown his way even once last week, so at this time his fantasy value is pretty much next to nothing.
Malcom Floyd - - Had one big catch and at this time, the Chargers WR position is still a bit of an unknown. Hopefully you are in position you can just avoid them all and see how it all plays out in the coming weeks. Although has some upside as the Chargers may be forced to air it out.
Eddie Royal - - Coming off a big game with a pair of touchdowns, so maybe he finally will live up to his potential. I'd like to see him used a little more frequently before considering him starter worthy. Although he is back on the radar after a long hiatus. Does have some potential to do it again if the Chargers are forced to air it out more this week.
Vincent Brown - - Found the end zone, but was not targeted very often as Rivers spread the wealth. It would probably be a good idea to continue to take a wait and see approach with him, and the rest of the Charger WRs.

Antonio Gates - - Was pretty quiet to start the season, although he made it through unscathed, which is a plus. A favorable matchup this week can only help his cause, so might as well run the veteran out there again if need be.

Nick Novak - - The offense started the season nicely and this week they have a good matchup and may be forced to light up the scoreboard to have a chance for the win.

San Diego Chargers - - The defense made a handful of plays, but not enough of them to be considered a huge fantasy threat. This week they face a fast offense that started the season off with a bang. Although Vick has had some turnover woes during his career, so there is some upside.

Prediction: San Diego Chargers 24 - Seattle Seahawks 23


Saint Louis Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Sunday 4:05pm

Saint Louis Rams

Sam Bradford - - Coming off a nice opener and appears to be enjoying his new weapons. This week he faces a defense that is susceptible to the pass and he may be forced to play keep up, which could give him a good bit of upside this week.

Zac Stacy - - Doesn't appear that he will have much of a role in the offense at this time. So stash him at the end of the bench to see if that changes in the coming weeks.
Isaiah Pead - - Back from suspension, but Richardson is expected to carry the bulk of the load. Likely won't see enough action to have any fantasy value at this time.

Chris Givens - - Was quiet last week, although he has been proven in the past. A good matchup this week does give him upside, but it may not be a bad move to see how this week plays out. Will Austin and Cook continue to be the main threats? With the Rams possibly playing catch up, I think he has the upside to merit a start still.
Austin Pettis - - May have his moments, but with lots of other options out there, he likely will struggle to produce more often than not.
Tavon Austin - - Coming off a solid debut and appears that Bradford will look to get him involved. A good matchup this week certainly could help his cause, so could be worth a roll of the dice.
Kenny Britt - - Was quiet last week and with a tough matchup this week, it may be a good week to explore other options.
Brian Quick - - Not ready yet. Keep moving along.
Stedman Bailey - - Doesn't look like this rookie will get any chances, at least not at this time. Move along please.

Jared Cook - - Coming off a huge game in his Rams debut. Looks like he could turn into a strong option, although it would be nice to see him produce nicely again. Still, after last week and with a good matchup this week, he more than deserves a start.
Lance Kendricks - - Got a few bones, but with Cook and the other WR options out there, he likely won't produce enough to consider him a worthy fantasy option.

Greg Zuerlein - - The offense does appear like it could be improved this season, at least the passing game. This should help lead to more scoring chances for Legatron.

St. Louis Rams - - While the defense has some capable play makers, this week they will have their hands full against a high-powered Falcons offense, that will be motivated to bounce back from a slow opener.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers


Doug Martin - - Had one good game and one stinker vs. the Saints last season. I'd expect him to step it up more in Week Two and continue to be a strong fantasy option.
Bobby Rainey - - Richardson will likely continue to be the only Browns RB to touch the ball.

Vincent Jackson - - Coming off a huge game and he should continue to see plenty of targets, especially if the Bucs are forced to air it out a little more this week.

Brandon Myers - - Another receiver for the Giants coming off a big game. Looks like he could be a nice fit into the offense and with the Giants liable to be airing it out often, he could be a worthy option again this week.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers - - The defense should be improved, but they will have their hands full this week against one of the better defenses in the land.

Prediction: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20 - Saint Louis Rams 20


Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos - Sunday 4:25pm

Kansas City Chiefs

Alex Smith - - Faces a pass defense that was lit up last week, although the Chiefs offense does not appeared to be built around Smith throwing it 40+ times. Has some upside thanks to the matchup, but he likely isn't going to be throwing for 300+ yards and lots of touchdowns very often.

Jamaal Charles - - Coming off a strong start to the season and the offense will likely continue to flow through him. You took him high for a reason, so not sure why you would bench him if he is able to play. Just start him.
Knile Davis - - As expected, he had a very limited role in the offense, thus he continues to be nothing more than a handcuff to Charles (And probably one you should have).

Dwayne Bowe - - At least Smith knows he exists, although we'd definitely like to see him more involved in the passing game. A good matchup this week can't hurt.
Donnie Avery - - Found the end zone last week, although without the touchdown, his fantasy value would have been pretty bad. At least he has the potential to produce if you need him.
Junior Hemingway - - Found the end zone last week, although it was his only reception and probably one of those rare moments. Do not consider him a fantasy option at this time.
Kyle Williams - - Likely won't be targeted enough to merit starting him, especially considering the iffy matchup.

Anthony Fasano - - Didn't see enough action to consider him anything but a fill-in for byes and injuries. Maybe that will change as the season progresses.
Travis Kelce - - The rookie is still banged up and not ready to be considered fantasy worthy.

Ryan Succop - - The offense looks like it should be pretty solid this season, which should bode well for his fantasy value. The Cowboys defense has some playmakers, but gave up tons of yards last week, so he should get scoring chances.

Kansas City Chiefs - - The defense is coming off a huge game, although this week they face a much more talented and proven offense. On the plus side, they have had some turnover issues in the past.

Denver Broncos

Peyton Manning - - After last week, you definitely need to keep him in your starting lineup, regardless of matchup. A good matchup this week can only help.

Montee Ball - - See Moreno and Hillman. Long-term he could be the guy, but for now, it may be best to sit and wait.
Ronnie Hillman - - See Moreno and apply the same logic.

Demaryius Thomas - - Coming off another huge game and has another good matchup to exploit this week. Just keep running him out there.
Wes Welker - - Looks like he will fit in perfectly and could continue to be a huge fantasy threat. A good matchup this week should allow him to keep it going.
Emmanuel Sanders - - Coming off a solid game and it appears that he will step up to help replace Wallace. Bengals have a solid pass defense, though if Big Ben has time, he could make them pay.
Andre Caldwell - - With so many other options at Manning's disposal, he likely will struggle to produce most weeks. Sure he'll have a nice game here and there, but too risky to merit starting. A banged up Decker could help his this week.

Julius Thomas - - Coming off a huge week, but lets see if he can keep it up. With so many options to spread the ball to, he could have some ups and downs. But defenses have to give in to someone, and it may be Thomas that they struggle to deal with.
Jacob Tamme - - Thomas will likely make him pretty much useless in the fantasy realm.

Matt Prater - - The offense looks to be in mid-season form and likely will be tough to contain, which should make for a busy Prater this season.

Denver Broncos - - The defense has playmakers and after the turnover issues the Giants had last week, they could definitely make a strong starting option.

Prediction: Denver Broncos 34 - Kansas City Chiefs 23


Houston Texans at Oakland Raiders - Sunday 4:25pm

Houston Texans


Arian Foster - - Was not his usually productive self last week, but he had no ill effects and his role should increase some as we go. A good matchup this week can only help him get closer to his old self. As always, if he plays, he starts.

Andre Johnson - - Coming off a huge game and Schaub will continue to utilize him early and often. The Texans aren't liable to air it out as much this week though, but he typically gets his most weeks.
DeAndre Hopkins - - The rookie impressed in his debut and should really be a nice complement to AJ. The Texans are not liable to pass it as much this week, though the matchup should be favorable enough to merit starting him if you are in need of his services.
Keshawn Martin - - Hopkins stepped it up, so it looks like they found their complement to AJ, which likely means Martin has little to no fantasy value.

Garrett Graham - - Found the end zone last week as the Texans unleashed their TE duo a good bit. With Daniels banged up, he could get a few more chances, especially if he was forced to sit out this week.

Randy Bullock - - The offense should be able to keep it going this week, although the Titans defense stepped up last week and if they can do it again, that could mean more FG attempts for Bullock this week.

Houston Texans - - The defense is coming off a solid game fantasy wise, although they gave up a good deal of points. This week they face an offense that did not exactly light it up last week and one they have had success against in the past.

Oakland Raiders

Matt Schaub - - Coming off a big game, although this week the Texans are liable to get back to running the ball more since the Titans offense doesn't seem to have the firepower to get up early. Still the addition of Hopkins could be really help Schaub's value this season.

Maurice Jones-Drew - - Started off slowly last week, but has a good matchup to exploit this week and hopefully he can find his usual groove and get back into your good graces.
Darren McFadden - - Coming off a good game and while defenses may worry about Pryor's running ability, DMC could really make them pay. A good matchup this week should allow him to produce strong fantasy numbers.

James Jones - - Held without a catch last week. That definitely was a huge disappointment, but it is too soon to give up on him. This week he has a great matchup against the struggling Redskins defense. If he struggles again this week, then maybe it will be time to worry some.
Rod Streater - - Coming off a nice game, although Streater can be streaky. Add in the new QB and he has some risk. The nice matchup this week certainly gives him the potential to get it done.
Denarius Moore - - Coming off a solid game with a touchdown. Likely will be a little hit-or-miss as Pryor learns the ropes. A good matchup this week could help his cause though and make him a worthy option this week.
Greg Little - - Another quiet week and it appears that the Browns will rely heavily on Cameron and probably Gordon when he is back next week. Continues to struggle making the routine catches.


Sebastian Janikowski - - A good matchup this week should help his cause and potentially allow him to put up plenty of points.

Oakland Raiders - - The defense struggled last week, but this week they could definitely benefit from facing arguably the worst offense in the NFL.

New York Jets at Green Bay Packers - Sunday 4:25pm

New York Jets

Geno Smith - - The rookie had a solid debut and maybe he could surprise. Still hard to rely on him, especially against a crafty defense like the Patriots. Although Manuel had some success last week, so there certainly is hope for Geno.
Michael Vick - - Coming off a big week and has another good matchup to exploit this week. Looks like the future could be bright, assuming he can stay healthy. May have some ups and downs as he learns the nuances of the new offense. Great upside though.

Chris Johnson - - The offense will definitely continue to go through CJ2K. An iffy matchup this week, although his big play ability can allow him to produce any given Sunday (He did have one pretty big game against them last season). Still a riskier play this week.
Chris Ivory - - Neither Jets RB showed much last week and it appears the battle still rages for touches. The Patriots did struggle against the run last week, so maybe there is some upside. Still probably best to continue to take a wait and see approach.
Bilal Powell - - Like Ivory, he did not exactly step it up, although he has some success as a receiver. At this point, it is probably in your best interests to look elsewhere for RB help until this situation plays itself out.
Daryl Richardson - - Coming off a solid game and should continue to get his share of touches. Does have a solid matchup this week, although if the Falcons jump out early, the running game could be shelved. Although he proved to be a capable receiver as well.

Eric Decker - - Was quiet last week and while I expect him to bounce back as defenses adjust, he is dealing with a shoulder injury that could limit his effectiveness this week. If he can play, still merits a shot, though watch that status closely.
Stephen Hill - - Not a bad start to the season as he led the way for the WRs. Has the talent to produce, just a question if he will get the chances. On the radar, but still probably a little early to rely on him as a starter.
Jeremy Kerley - - Dealing with a concussion and is likely out for this week's matchup with the Patriots.
Jacoby Ford - - Capable of making a big play, though he likely won't get many chances to make one. So he likely will mostly miss with an occasional hit.

Jeff Cumberland - - Appears that Winslow has emerged as Smith's security blanket which likely will make Cumberland useless to the fantasy community.
Zach Sudfeld - - So much for the solid debut for the rookie TE. Maybe with Gronk likely out again, as well as Amendola, he could take on a larger role this week. Still may be best to hold off on him until he proves he is worthy.

Nick Folk - - Coming off a strong game as the offense was unable to finish drives. He could have quite a few big weeks this year, unfortunately he likely will have some major stinkers as the offense could have some real struggles this season too.

New York Jets - - The defense played a solid game, but will have their hands a little fuller this week against a solid Patriots offense, although the injury bug continues to run rampant, which could allow the Jets a chance to surprise a little bit.

Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers - - Coming off his usual big game, which came against a pretty good 49ers defense. This week he faces the other end of the spectrum and faces one of the softer pass defenses in the league. Could be a great option for those in FanDuel leagues.

Eddie Lacy - - It certainly appears that the Packers will utilize Lacy the bulk of the time. Still a passing team, but one that will run if given the opening. A good matchup this week should help his cause and could allow him to find the end zone again this week.
James Starks - - Looks like Lacy is the man, so the rest of the Packer RBs are likely out of luck.

Jordy Nelson - - Coming off a huge game and this week he faces a defense that looks like they will struggle again this season, so Nelson should have a good chance to keep it rolling this week.
Randall Cobb - - Coming off a huge game and it appears that the Packers will try to get him the ball in different ways. With a great matchup this week, you definitely need to get him into your starting lineup, and keep him there.

Andrew Quarless - - If Finley can't go, he could benefit from his absence. Although I hope you are not this desperate for TE help.
Jermichael Finley - - Coming off a strong game, but is dealing with an injured toe. Could force hiom to sit out this week or limit him some if he can go. Watch his status closely. If he can play, his upside may be too good to pass up with such a favorable matchup this week.

Mason Crosby - - The offense should be able to light up the struggling Redskins defense and give Crosby plenty of scoring chances.

Green Bay Packers - - The defense showed some flashes last week, but struggled more often than not. This week they will face another offense with a QB capable of running, one that is coming off a strong opening week performance.

Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers - Sunday 8:30pm

Chicago Bears

Jay Cutler - - Coming off a good game and the o-line appears to be improved a good bit. That can only help his cause. Also should help this week that he faces a defense coming off a tough week.

Matt Forte - - Coming off a nice start to the season, not his best performance, but still not too shabby. This week he faces a defense coming off a tough week, one that he has had some success against during his career.

Brandon Marshall - - Coming off another huge game and this week faces a defense that really struggled against the pass last week. It also helps that he has historically done very well against the Vikings.
Alshon Jeffery - - The youngster put up some decent numbers and will look to continue to build on those numbers, which could allow him to turn into a solid fantasy option. A good matchup helps his cause, although I'm still not sold that he is ready for prime time.
Josh Morgan - - RG3 really gets so many guys involved in the offense. This means any given week, just about anyone could step up or put up limited fantasy production. Probably not near the top of the WR rankings, so should only be used if you are in a bind.

Martellus Bennett - - Looks like he could turn into a welcomed addition to the Bears offense as he started off his Bears career in style last week. A good matchup this week could help hiom keep it going.

Robbie Gould - - The offense should be able to keep it going this week as they face a defense coming off a tough game. Thus Gould should get his share of scoring chances.

Chicago Bears - - Started out a little quietly, although they certainly are more than capable of getting it done this week. Vikings typically take care of the ball, although did struggle with that last week, turning it over four times.

San Francisco 49ers

Colin Kaepernick - - Continues to be hot, although he struggled in his last chance in Seattle last season. They did a good job shutting down Cam last week, although Kaepernick has been on a good roll, so hard to sit him (Unless you are loaded at QB).
Blaine Gabbert - - Injuries could force him to sit out this week and even if he could go, he has not proven to be a capable fantasy starter yet.

Frank Gore - - Split with the Seahawks last year with a huge game at home, but a dud in Seattle. With this game in hostile Seattle, it could be a tough week for him. Though the proven veteran is still capable of getting it done.
Kendall Hunter - - Likely will get some touches, but probably not enough of them to merit starting him, especially against a good run defense.
LaMichael James - - Still dealing with an injured knee, so continue to bypass him when filling out your lineup cards.

Anquan Boldin - - Coming off a huge game and while he has a tough matchup this week, it appears that Kaepernick found the guy he will force the ball to early and often. Should get his looks, so might as well ride the hot hand.
Stevie Johnson - - Coming off a solid game with a touchdown and has a chance to do it again this week against an iffy defense. His value is still heavily tied to a rookie QB, which will definitely make him a little riskier than in the past.
Quinton Patton - - Not expected to see much action, so there is likely no fantasy value to be found here.

Vernon Davis - - Coming off a monster game, though this week he faces a much tougher matchup, on the road to boot. He was very quiet last season against the Seahawks, although Kaepernick has matured which could help.
Vance McDonald - - Likely won't get enough touches to merit starting, especially with a tough matchup this week.

Phil Dawson - - A battle of top defenses could come down to the legs of the kickers.

San Francisco 49ers - - The defense should be pretty good this year, although the Seahawks typically protect the ball and the last time the 49ers went to Seattle, it was ugly for them.

Philadelphia Eagles at Indianapolis Colts - Monday 8:30pm

Philadelphia Eagles


LeSean McCoy - - Coming off a huge game and with another good matchup this week, you definitely have to keep running him out there. Looks like he could be in for a huge season, as long as he doesn't wear down from the heavy workload and breakneck pace.
Darren Sproles - - Just continues to be heavily involved in the passing game and should continue to be golden in PPR leagues, with the potential to light up the scoreboard any week.

Riley Cooper - - At this early point of the season, just not touching the ball enough to consider him worth starting, even with a good matchup. As he gets more comfortable in the offense, that could certainly change.

Zach Ertz - - As the season progresses, maybe the rookie will see more opportunities, but at this time, he id not involved in the passing game enough to merit starting.
Brent Celek - - Found the end zone as Vick continued to look his way. Although it would be nice if he looked toward him a little more often. Considering the Chargers really struggled to contain the TE last week, Celek could be key in Week Two.

Alex Henery - - The offense looks very strong thus fr, so the young kicker could be busy quite often this season. Looking like he will be a strong fantasy option most weeks.

Philadelphia Eagles - - The defense started off well, although there could be concerns they get worn out as the season progresses if the offense has quick drives and forces the defense onto the field with limited rest.

Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck - - With the running game still trying to find its identity and the Dolphins looking like a good run defense, Luck could carry more of the load this week. Certainly has enough weapons to make for a nice day.

Trent Richardson - - The Browns didn't utilize him as much as expected, although you can expect that to change this week after Weeden struggled to open the season. Had success against the Ravens last season, so certainly is capable of doing it again in 2013.
Ahmad Bradshaw - - Struggled last week as Ballard stepped it up. With Ballard now lost for the season, Bradshaw will get first crack to be the man. The Dolphins run defense did a good job last week against Richardson, so it may not be a bad move to avoid this situation this week and see what we learn this week.
Vick Ballard - - Lost of the season with a torn ACL, so you can forget about him for the 2013 season.

Reggie Wayne - - The veteran just continues to get the job done and there are no indications that he is slowing down any time soon. So probably in your best interest to keep running him out there every week.
Hakeem Nicks - - Coming off a big game and merits another start as the Giants try to play keep up this week.
T.Y. Hilton - - In the same boat as Heyward-Bey. Definitely is capable of putting up some nice numbers or could be quiet. His familiarity with Luck could help his cause, so certainly has the potential to produce.

Dwayne Allen - - Found the end zone last week, although it was his only touch. An injured hip could force him out this week, so it may be best to play it safe and explore other options.
Coby Fleener - - If Allen is unable to play, Fleener has some nice upside. If Allen can go, it will be more of the same, which TE will get it done which week.

Adam Vinatieri - - The offense should be able to move the ball on the Dolphins, although they are capable of forcing them to settle for FG attempts, which could mean a busy day for Vinatieri.

Indianapolis Colts - - The defense disappointed last week, although maybe they could benefit from facing an offense that is still trying to find itself. Though they still appear to be a defense that is not quite ready for the fantasy world.
