Pratt's Start and Sits of the Week

After my first time posting my starts of the week, I felt like I didn't take enough chances. This week is different, not only are these more risky starts, but I really think they are going to bring you the high reward you are looking for (especially if one of your stars are on a bye this week). I also decided to include my star sit for this week as well.

Starts of the week:

Quarterback: Matt Leinart. I can't believe I'm suggesting him either, but Leinart is going up against the 32nd (that's last) ranked pass defense in the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have given up 11 TDs in the air. Leinart should be able to take full advantage of their weak passing D, and should go for 300 yards and 2-3 TDs.

Running Back: Reuben Droughns. He has probably been riding your bench most of the year, and you may have even gotten frustrated with him and dropped him. This week, expect a great performance against the Jets. The Jets have allowed a league-high 12 rushing TDs, and are 28th against the run.

Wide Receiver: Keyshawn Johnson. There's actually a lot of talk of him being a bust this week, and I don't see this at all. Look back against the last time he played one of his old teams (Tampa Bay). Johnson had 97 yards receiving, 1 receiving TD, and 1 rushing TD. (And in case you are wondering, Steve Smith was playing that game). He is going to have a lot of opportunities this week.

Tight End: Courtney Anderson. If any of you saw the Steelers game last week (if you didn't it was one of the best of the week/season), then you will have seen how Alge Crumpler destroyed the Pittsburgh secondary for 3 TDs and 117 yards. Pittsburgh is horrible about gaurding TEs, and Oakland will more than likely be passing for most of the game. In his last 2 games Anderson has 111 yards receiving.

Defense: New Orleans Saints. With a new offensive coordinator and Steve McNair coming off of injury, the Ravens offense should be in shambles. The Ravens average just over 18 points per game, which is what the Saints allow per game (The Saints are the 12th ranked D in the league).

Here is my sit of the week:

Fred Taylor. I expect the Eagles to go up early in this game and force the Jags to rely on Gerrard (yep, he's starting) to throw the ball. Another factor why Taylor is going to be a bust this week, is because he is being a baby about losing carries to Maurice Jones-Drew. The Eagles are 12th against the run, and should have no problem shutting Fragile Fred down.
