QUARTERBACK

MARC BULGER
Rams AT Cowboys
With two TDs and three INTs, Bulger is on his way to the worst season of hiscareer, due in large part to St. Louis's inability to protect him in three- andfour-receiver sets. A tattered O-line figures to keep the Rams' play-callingconservative again this week.

Jon Kitna
Lions vs. Bears
Kitna is completing 67.8% of his passes, but that's after facing the strugglingpass defenses of Oakland, Minnesota and Philadelphia. Lovie's boys will ballhawk against an offense that has been throwing more than 46 times per game.

RUNNING BACK

Tatum Bell
Lions vs. Bears
The return of Kevin Jones drops Bell from a probable fantasy starter to alikely reserve. Against Chicago he's definitely the latter.

EdgerrinJames
Cardinals vs. Steelers
James is one of this season's best comeback stories, but Pittsburgh has yet toallow a rushing TD. Advantage: Men of Steel.

BrandonJackson
Packers vs. Vikings
Green Bay has run for only one touchdown at the Metrodome since the beginningof the '03 season.

TIGHT END

Zach Miller
Raiders at Dolphins
Miami has faced two of the best in the league in Chris Cooley and Jason Witten,yet has allowed a mere 55 total yards to opposition tight ends in '07.

KICKER

Neil Rackers
Cardinals vs. Steelers
In three games this year the Pittsburgh defense has allowed seven, three and 16points, so the Arizona booter should find attempts hard to come by.

WIDE RECEIVER

Reggie Brown
Eagles at Giants
The supposed go-to receiver accounted for only 23 yards in a 536-yard offensiveexplosion against Detroit. Where's Reggie? The answer should be: the fantasybench.

ShaunMcDonald
Lions vs. Bears
He's been a hot waiver pickup, with 18 catches for 237 yards and two TDs. Butagainst Chicago there won't be enough balls to go around, particularly in thered zone.

Dwayne Bowe
Chiefs at Chargers
The rookie from LSU has emerged as Kansas City's top wide receiver. But stayaway this week, as the Bolts' pass rush will be all over QB Damon Huard.

DEFENSE / SPECIALTEAMS

Broncos AtColts
Quarterbacks usually suffer when they meet up with Champ Bailey (right) andDenver's D. One exception, inevitably, is Peyton Manning; in his last two gamesagainst the Broncos (including playoffs), Manning has thrown for an astounding803 yards and seven TDs, with just one interception

Also sit QB Derek Anderson Browns, RB Ahman Green Texans, RB Cadillac WilliamsBuccaneers, all Saints, Titans, Redskins and Jaguars (BYE)
