K Blair Walsh         5 K Robbie Gould         8
D           5 D           7

Summary:  Interesting match-up.  The Vikings coming off bye should be healthy to include Harvin but this is the Bears at home in what should be cold weather.  AP is good and should score...I like Harvin for a score but I like the Bears defense to make Ponder's life a living hell.  I think the Bears defense will find a way to win this for them. 

Update:

Vikings - And Percy Harvin is doubtful.....at this point you should plan on using someone else.

Bears - Jay Cutler looks to be good to go which means start Marshall.  Alshon Jeffery is out and Peppers is probable.

Summary:  I'll update with McFadden's status Saturday night or Sunday morning when I know more.  As it stands Reece is a solid fill in as he proved last week with 190 total yards but the Raiders suck bad.  Palmer throws to many picks for them to win and their defense sucks.  Myers is a solid play for you at TE.  Dalton and the Bengals I like to destroy the Raiders.  AJ Green is a fantasy stud that's burned me all season because Snake drafted him 4 spots before I picked....bastard.  And Dalton just seems to get the job done while putting up good numbers. 

Update:

Raiders - McFadden and Goodson are still out....Start Reece.

Bengals - Andrew Hawkins is doubtful.

D         1 12 D           3

Summary:  Big Ben is out at least 2 more weeks and Leftwich takes some pine with fractured ribs!  Charlie Batch gets the start this week...I was a week early and knew Batch would get in eventually because Leftwich blows.  I like Batch to hit Wallace for a score and the Steelers D to get a score and the win. Trent Richardson has been playing like a beast and I like it to continue.  I don't think the Browns can win but I think they'll put up a heck of a fight. 

Update:

Steelers - Redman is probable.  Antonio Brown is listed as questionable but trust me, he is OUT this week.

Cleveland - Everyone fantasy wise is probable.

K Rian Lindell         8 K Adam Vinatieri         6
D           5 D           5

Summary:   Luck to TY Hilton looks pretty strong and he already hits Wayne 8-10 times a game....Luck is putting up the numbers and they're above .500.  I like the Colts to beat the Bills this week.  Fitzpatrick to Stevie Johnson will be good for a score and I like Spiller to score as well.  Won't be enough as Luck passes for near 300 yards again.

Update:

Bills - Fred Jackson is probable and will share with Spiller.

Colts - Luck is probable, Donald Brown is probable and Fleener is questionable.

K Matt Prater         10 K Ryan Succop         4
D           10 D           3

Summary:  Another easy win for Peyton and the Broncos.  Yes Manning is playing well but that defense of the Broncos is really out performing anything we could have predicted.  Expect another 300 yard game for Manning with 3 scores.  McGahee is out....for a while but Ronnie Hillman isn't bad at all.  The Chiefs blow....Cassel blows.  Poor Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe. 

Update:

Denver - Ronnie Hillman is probable and we like him for a big day on this KC defense.

KC - Bowe is probable for this game.

 Summary:  I'm feeling the Seahawks in this one...the Dolphins have been on a crappy playing streak.  Seattle's D isn't bad and should cause some issues for Tannehill.  I also like Lynch to play well and Wilson to play good enough to get the job done.  Close one, but Seattle wins.

Update:

Seattle - Lynch is good to go for this game...get him in your line-up.

Miami - Nothing here for news/injuries that would impact your team.

 Summary:  I'm going against the Falcons in this one....Upset of the week here.  Falcons have been playing like straight ass and now Julio has re-injured his ankle.  Doug Martin is going to expose some weaknesses in the Falcons D and VJack will get a deep bomb.  Go Bucs.

Update:

Falcons - Julio Jones WILL play today...I've updated numbers for Roddy, Ryan, Julio and Turner as a result.

Bucs - Nothing to see here...

K Rob Bironas         6 K Josh Scobee         9
D           3 D           5

 Summary:  I'm thinking Henne is going to rip the Titans.  Henne was named starting QB for this game and I really like how he and Blackmon looked last week.  The Titans defense won't be able to shut Henne down unless they bring pressure.  The Jags on the other hand couldn't stop me from hanging 100 on them so CJ should be solid.  I like the Jags to pull out the win. 

Update:

Titans - Britt and Locker are probable.

Jags - MJD still out.

K Justin Tucker         5 K Nate kaeding         8
D           5 D           5

 Summary:  I'm at a loss here....I don't like either team.  Can't stand Ryan Mathews....Rivers just can't seem to put it together this year.  Flacco throws for 300 one game and 87 yards the next.  All I know is Ray Rice needs to start getting 20+ carries a game and the Ravens would win more.  I'm going against my better judgment here and taking the Chargers at home.

Update:

Ravens - TE's Pitta and Dickson are both probable.

Chargers - Eddie Royal is out (who cares?)

D           5 D           5

 Summary:  I thought the Rams would beat the Jets last week and they just didn't show up to play.  On the road this week against the Card with a HUGE Quarterback issue I'm still going Rams.  Tight game...low scoring but Rams pull it out...especially if Lindley starts.  Kolb doesn't look to be ready yet and Skelton go benched last week after a 2 for 7 start.  I have Skelton in until something official comes out. 

Update:

Rams - Danny Amendola is doubtful.....SJax is probable. 

Cardinals - Stephens-Howlings is questionable with Ribs...enter Beanie Wells.  If you need a starting RB this week snag Wells.

K David Akers         6 TE Jimmy Graham     50 1 11
D           5 K Garrett Hartley         9
              D           5

 Summary:  REMATCH!  I like the Niners but the Saints are back!  They're at home and I like them to win.  The Niners D is good but Brees is better and he's got a ton of weapons.  Alex Smith should be back and he should keep the game close by handing off to Gore...I like Gore to rack up the yards on the Saints.  Just won't be enough to win.

Update:

Niners - Looks like Kaepernick might get the start or at least get playing time.  Avoid the Niners QB situation.

Saints - Nothing notable here.

Summary:  NY G-Men coming off the bye and they're at home?  I gotta take Eli and the Giants this week.  The Packers couldn't even put up monster points on the Lions D.  Look for the Giants to pin their ears back and come after Rodgers with all they have.  No Jennings still and no running game for the Packers coupled with being on the road I just don't like their chances.

Update:

Green Bay - Jennings is listed as questionable....so he could surprise and play but I doubt it. 

Giants - Bradshaw is probable.

 Summary:  LeSean McCoy suffered a concussion...not sure he'll be cleared to play.  If McCoy can't go then Bryce Brown will get the start.  I like Cam and the Panthers...I think you can stick a fork in the Eagles for the season and of course Andy Reid will almost certainly be let go. 

Update:

Panthers - Everyone is probable.

Eagles - McCoy is out...Vick is out...The Eagles are screwed.
