Sometimes, it's hard to believe in the power of matchups. When you get Matt Forte against the league's worst run defense and he sputters out in single digits, it's easy to want to ignore the opposition and just play your most talented guys every week. It's understandable. On the other hand, if you started David Garrard against the Dallas Cowboys two weeks ago, you know how fantastic it can be to get a dominant performance from a guy you might otherwise expect to be a bye-week starter.
