Christopher Durr: “Start: Gore. I’m not a Gore fan with Kaep at QB, but a matchup against the Colts Run D is just too good to sit Gore this week.

Sit: MJD. Us MJD fantasy owners have gotten burned enough so consider benching him until something gives. Consider DeAngelo Williams, Mendenhall , or a Jets RB this week.

Sleeper: Ivory. It is the perfect opportunity to prove himself against a weak Bills runD. So start him with confidence at your flex.

Boom or Bust: Spiller. The Jets run D has been solid this year. Combine that with the fact that the Bills have been splitting carries between Spiller and Jackson, and you may have a recipe for disappointment. I doubt he reaches the 15 points he is projected to reach. But something has to give since CJ has yet to score a TD. He’ll either explode and put up outstanding numbers, or Spiller owner’s may be left hoping for a bit more.”

Spencer Reid “Start: Moreno. Moreno has earned the number 1 job with his great pass blocking, and more importantly rushing attack. If you are in desperate need of an RB play this week I’d say you can play him as an RB2 or Flex. The Broncos also play the Oakland Raiders this week, I smell fantasy points

Sleeper: Joique Bell. With Reggie Bush dealing with a knee injury and a favorable match up against a struggling Redskins defence, Joique Bell could be a nice start in deeper leagues, even if Bush plays. Bell has already put up 28 points as a “back up” RB”

Derek DeBolt  “Start of the week I’m going with Stafford even though RG3 was very tempting for a second consecutive week. Stafford was able to put up good numbers against a strong Cards secondary, look for more of that against a weak Redskins one.

Sit of the week I’m going with Romo. Honestly nobody knows what Tony is going to show up each week but he’s playing a surprising Titans defense that has kept two compotent qbs in check thus far in the season.

My sleeper is last weeks sit. Eli Manning. The guy just got beat up by his brother for the third time and he’s out for some redemption. Eli has shown composure in the past and it’s no secret with Carolinas front 7, the Giants will be airing out the ball all game against a questionable Panthers secondary.”
