    • deuce is playing, Why would you start Pierre?

    • hightower, or i can start someone else. i have r. bush and l.j. on the bench. hurting at rb position.

    • He isn't a bad start but the Saints are a pass first offense. Look for Green-Ellis or Moore if you are looking for a free agent.
      Please view my sleeper report maybe this will help you this week.

      Some people have mastered the art of picking the best of the best even when the best of the best may be overlooked. Below is my weekly fantasy sleeper report. The sleeper report is an all inclusive report of hot players that may be worth taking a look at via free agency to fill much needed voids left by byes injuries etc.

      QB - JT O' Sullivan - 20 -32 321 yards and a TD last time out against the Seahawks. Contrary to ones belief Seattle is strong up front but a weak secondary that prefers to play zone defense will be eaten alive this week. The 29th ranked pass defense (Seattle) playing against a quarterback that wants to prove to his head coach that they shouldn't go grab Chase or Colt with next years top five pick.

      RB - BenJarvus Green-Ellis
      This guy is fifth all-time in the state of Louisiana in rushing. So what you may ask? He also plays on the 6th ranked running offense. So what you may still say? Ok the rams are 30th in rush D and this game will be a back and fourth game. Look for BGE to come up big.

      WR - Antonio Bryant
      Look for the Bucs to come out swinging. Expect a big first half for Bryant as Garcia exploits the already depleted Dallas secondary. Look for big Bucks guard Joseph Davin to buy time for Garcia to find you know who.... Bryant he is a sure start at W/R this week.

      TE - Alex Smith/Jeremy Stevens
      Look for Garcia to connect with Smith and Stevens early across the middle. Dallas likes to come with the corner blitz early in games which usually means a linebacker must drop back and play the tight end. Hence the tight end flashes the middle once it is picked up and is wide open. Either is a good choice if you are looking for a solid tight end for this week and need to go the free agent route. 11 catches 133 yards and a TD are the stat lines that these TE's have put up in the last two weeks.

      K- Josh Scobee
      The Jags are notorious for getting in the red zone and not scoring TD's. Well thank God for Josh Scobee. Everyone knows about Jason Elan and Sabastian winning games but Scobee is single handedly responsible for 2 of his teams 3 wins and has made 11 straight field goals.Look for him to have 4 field goals and 2 PATs as the Jags go on to beat the Browns 28-14.

      Defense - New York Jets
      KC's QB's have accounted for 3 funmbles 2 interceptions and have been sacked 6 times and have thronw for 2 touchdowns ( 2 TDs in garbage time) in the last two games. With no Johnson again this week expect the Jets to rush five or more lineman every down and cause havoc.

      DB - Deangelo Hall
      Look for Flaco to improve on his league worse 1 to 3.5 TD to Interception ratio this week and throw 2 Oakland's way. Deangelo will be more active at the line with McGahee probable with a nagging knee injury who may play but not at 100 percent. Flaco throws two Hall catches one and plays the entire game in Flaco's backfield.

      DL- James Harriosn
      As teams elect to double team 2 time defensive player of the week and early favorite to win defensive player of the year Lamar Woodley ( which Giants openly claim they will do) look for Harrison to have success. Woodley is no sleeper if you see him available as a free agent pick him up. Otherwise, look for Harrison to come unblocked as the Giants try helplessly try to stop Woodley. Long day a long day for Eli.

      Last Weeks Sleeper Report
      QB - Trent Edwards
      RB - Mewelde Moore
      WR - Malcom Floyd
      K - Matt Bryant
      D -Pittsburgh
      DB - Nick Collins
      DL - Lamar Woodley.

    • yea, i definitely like thomas over hightower this week

    • what are your other options?
