Every week, we preview all of the upcoming games from a fantasy perspective. To help you with lineup decisions, we give you matchups to exploit, key starting choices and advice on who to leave on your bench.
Arizona at St. Louis: This one could feature a lot of points and good fantasy numbers. Steven Jackson could score more than once against a vulnerable defense, which can be exploited often against the run. Torry Holt could revisit the 100-yard mark, and Marc Bulger should look sharper than he did at Seattle last week. Of course, the Cardinals will have to throw often to keep pace, and with Anquan Boldin returning, Kurt Warner looks like a good bet to throw for 300 yards again. Start and Smile: Steven Jackson, Torry Holt, Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald. Watch and Worry: Isaac Bruce still has to get warm after returning from a five-game layoff last week.
Buffalo at San Diego: J.P. Losman started to look more confident last week, and don't be surprised to see him post decent numbers and hook up with Eric Moulds for a score. Willis McGahee could also take advantage of the fact the Chargers are dealing with injury issues at LB. Of course, LaDainian Tomlinson should post splendid numbers against a normally porous Buffalo run defense. Drew Brees should benefit with lots of time to throw and should be good for more than one TD pass. Start and Smile: Willis McGahee, Drew Brees. Watch and Worry: J.P. Losman might have turned a corner mentally and could improve soon, but it's still too risky to start him.
