Are you taking your chances this week?

Are you asking yourself this week, is he gonna play.... and if so how well?

I've put together a little list of a few people who have question marks around them this week.

QB Huard may not play this week, he did not practice today, meaning the 3rd string Croyle would get the start, Green is still going to be out for at least two more games. If you need to start Huard definitely watch to see if he gets in some practice tomorrow.

WR C. Henry he IS activated for the Bengals upcoming Sunday game vs the Falcons, he may not be a bad start, but its hard to tell how much he will actually play. He was a great option as a third wide receiver and was a decent fantasy pickup for a few weeks

WR Larry Fitzgerald. it doesnt look like Fitz will play this week, and after that they have a bye. Hold on to him, or pick him up if someone dropped him.

WR Greg Jennings. Jennings hasnt practiced at all this week so it is very unlikely for him to play, hes still Doubtful

RB Ahman Green. He is probable but is expected to play. He broke out a big run last week, but I personally dont think he will do the same even if they are playing Arizona. I'd be cautious about jumping on the Green bandwagon just yet, it may break down again

QB Byron Leftwich. He looks like another gametime decision although he is not listed to START in the game. Backup Gerrard has taken the majority of the snaps and may be a decent fantasy start this week, although its hard to tell if Leftwich will get some time in the game. He has played without practicing throughout his career

WR Laveranues Coles. Dont let the little Q next to his name every week fool you. Coles did practice today and is expected to play, and as always is a very solid fantasy start. The Jets play the Browns this week, so if you have Coles, you should be playing him.

WR Donte' Stallworth. Stallworth has been a personal pain to me all year, I got him off waivers early and thought he would be good but hes been injured most of the year and it seems to remain the same. Hopefully that changes this week while Stallworth's status sounds better. He is listed as probable and practiced today, so he should be starting.

QB Ben Roethlisberger. Dont go pick up Batch just yet. I dont quite understand the logic here for playing Ben so soon, but he has practiced all week. He is still listed as questionable, but it sounds like he will be playing.

RB LaMont Jordan. Jordan practiced today but he will still be a gametime decision as he was last week. It would be tough to want to play him against the Steelers Defense. I know last week it was a big shootout, but come on its the Steelers (9th ranked rush defense). I wouldnt be too worried about Jordan, Id just scratch him from your lineups all together.

QB McNair. I just heard on ESPN he has practiced and it looks like he is going to be playing
