Pratt's Starts and Sit of the Week!

This fantasy football season is going fast! That might be good for some of you (including me!). Here we are in week 12 already. Since it is a short week I thought I'd get my starts and sit out in the open:

Quarterback: Matt Leinart (ARZ). Arizona got a much needed win last week. By "much needed" I mean for their confidence. This week they are playing the Minnesota Vikings who have a horrible passing defense (ranked 26th in the league), and Leinart certainly has the weapons around him to post some strong numbers. Look for Fitz to bounce back, and to give Leinart a good game.

Running Back: Wali Lundy (HOU). Lundy is going up against the 29th ranked rushing defense in the league (the NYJ). The Jets are allowing 146 yards a game, and have allowed a league-high 13 rushing TDs. He should have a great game this week.

Wide Receiver: Chris Chambers (MIA). Miami's offense is finally starting to click. I mentioned in my earlier post that Harrington might not be a bad pickup if you are weak at QB. Detroit is 22nd in passing defense and Miami usually plays well on Thanksgiving.

Tight End: Jerramy Stevens (SEA). This one might be wishful thinking because I need a good game out of him this week. Green Bay is 31st in passing D and has given up 18 passing touchdowns this season. Look for both Seattle's running and passing game to get back on track this week.

Defense: Carolina Panthers. The Panthers finally had a strong defensive game last week, shutting out the high powered St. Louis offense. They should have an easier time controlling the game in Washington, and should post similar numbers to last week.

My sit this week belongs to Thomas Jones (CHI). Jones is going up against the 2nd best rushing defense in the league (NE). New England has only allowed 5 rushing TDs this season, and will shut Jones down all day.
