Decision time: Playing matchups, keen hindsight keys to success
Let's get right into it -- the good and the bad decisions that will make or break your fantasy football seasons. I'll leave out the ugly since the Vikings have that covered.
Matt Cassel's 469 passing yards and 4 TDs at Denver
With only two games separating the last-place Broncos (3-6) from the first-place Raiders (5-4), this division is must-watch material. Up next: Denver at San Diego next Monday night.
Looking ahead to this Thursday, Chicago travels to Miami. The Dolphins QB situation is a mess with both Chad Pennington and Chad Henne suffering possible season-ending injuries Sunday. The only Dolphin worth starting is WR Brandon Marshall, even though his value takes a hit with QB Tyler Thigpen now throwing to him. On the Bears side, QB Jay Cutler still feels shaky despite back-to-back solid games while his top target WR Johnny Knox is racking up receiving yards (617) but only has one touchdown. RB Matt Forte is averaging just 3.8 yards per carry, and he's losing goal-line carries to RB Chester Taylor, but he still has value in PPR leagues.
