Thoughts after watching every play in the NFL last week that you can use in the weeks ahead.
• I'm not exactly sure how
• In Week 5,
• If I redrafted right now,
• For a guy with turf toe,
• The Bears defense is back, thanks to
• Carolina is a mess. No matter who starts at quarterback, they look like the worst team in the NFL. If you own
• As long as the Denver run game is as inept as it has shown,
• Remember earlier when I said Roddy White would be my No. 1 receiver if I redrafted today?
• Last week, I told you not to quit on this
• Even though
• In that redraft scenario,
• Now what do we think of the Raiders' running back situation?
• I think we've seen the last of
• I'm starting to get the feeling
• Nice of you to join the 2010 season,
• It's clear

We went 3-for-3 once again last week, and if you went with the Lions you cruised to one of the most profitable survivor victories of the year.
1. Chicago Bears (vs. Seahawks): The Bears host the Redskins next week and they go to Toronto to play the Bills after their Week 8 bye before the schedule gets brutal. Two games with the Vikings, road games in Green Bay, Detroit and Miami and home games against the Jets, Patriots and Eagles. This might be the last chance you get to use the Bears, and with Jay Cutler likely back this week, they should have no problem with the visiting Seahawks.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers (vs. Browns): The Steelers are a safer pick than the Bears, but they have a number of good matchups down the road (most notably a Week 11 home game against the Raiders). They also don't offer a huge payoff, as they figure to be the most popular pick this week. Still, they should nearly guarantee you Week 6 survival.
3. New York Giants (vs. Lions): I admit I thought twice about this one. The Lions are pretty frisky, but the Giants have looked amazing in their last two games, wins over the Bears and Texans. I think the winner of this game gets into the 30s, and I'm just not sure the Lions have the firepower to get there against the pass rush of the Giants, especially if Calvin Johnson's shoulder injury keeps him out.
