Pratt's Starts and Sit of the Week!

With the season half over, each fantasy football game you play becomes increasingly more crucial. This is the last week for bye weeks keep in mind. So without further adieu, here are my starts of the week...

Quarterback: Tony Romo. Romo struggled at the beginning of the Monday Night game against Carolina, but then settled down and started making some great plays. He threw for 250 yards and 1 TD against a pretty good Carolina D. This week, Romo will be facing the 30th ranked Pass D in the Washington Redskins who have also given up 14 passing TDs and only 2 INTs.

Running Back: Corey Dillon. With Maroney listed as questionable this week, and Indy having the awful rushing D that they have (ranked dead last) Dillon will have plenty of opportunities to put up big numbers. He is a great start this week.

Wide Receiver: Lee Evans. Evans is J.P. Losman's goto guy. This season he has 429 yards receiving but only 1 TD. The Packers have a pretty good Run D, but are last in Passing. This could/should be the week for Losman to shine, which would mean Evans should have a great week.

Tight End: Ben Watson. Yes he is almost at "must-start" status, but he is not there yet so I do not feel bad for choosing him as my TE start of the week. He is the leading receiver on NE, and even though the Pats will run on the Colts, he will still get plenty of looks. The Colts have given up 10 passing TDs so far this year.

Defense: Seattle Seahawks. I never imagined I would be able to pick them off the waivers in week 9 of the fantasy football season, but sure enough they were available. They have been struggling all season but this is the offense to bounce back on (the Raiders). The Raiders are last in total offense, and 31st in scoring offense. Look for Seattle to hold them to few points and put Walters on his back a few times.

My sit this week will hopefully play worse then Fred Taylor did last week (who was my sit for that week). This week, I recommend that you sit Philip Rivers. Rivers has been playing great all season, but when San Diego plays poor teams they resort to Marty Ball (just running it over and over again). Rivers will maybe throw for 200 yards and a TD, but look for LT to steal his thunder again this week.
