Start Em Sit Em Week 10

Start 'Em

QB Kitna- After a huge performance against Denver, I would expect much of the same against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals are ranked 7th against the pass allowing 194 yards per game. However, Detriot should have a lot of opportunities to score.

RB McGahee- Probably one of the most consistent backs in the NFL right now, he is a strong play the next two weeks. I traded to get him in another league. He was held to only 50 yards against a strong Pittsburgh D. This week at home against the 28th ranked rushing defense, Cincinnati, he is going to go over 100 yards and a touchdown.

WR Stokley- By now you should have your strong starters, but in leagues where you start several wide receivers, it can be a matchup or bye week battle. With Welker, Cotchery and the Texans wideouts on bye, it could leave you with an open spot. This week I am plugging in Brandon Stokley. Since Walkers injury he has been a decent option getting a lot of looks in the passing game. He scored the only touchdown for Denver last week.

Defense- Detriot Lions- As I mentioned in Hot Pick-up For Week 10, the Lions could be a huge start for you this week. The other leading fantasy defense is on bye, so the Lions is a great fill-in against a struggling Arizona offense. The only TD came for them last week in the 4th quarter, with the game pretty sealed.

The Lions lead the NFL in turnovers and it should be more of the same this week.

Sit Em

Rudi Johnson / Kenny Watson- The running back tandem didn't do too great against the Bills. The only way Watson saved face in fantasy points was his catching out of the backfield. Against Baltimore I'd expect much of the same.

Steven Jackson- Jackson was my start when he came back and he was looking great. After suffering ANOTHER injury he's back, but not in full force. Leave him on the bench another week.

Marques Colston- He's been hot, but it can't last, he's looked terrible the first half of the season. I want to sell high on this guy while he still has value.
