No-brainers and no-ways? Matchups that look too good to be true certainly can be. And surprise performers lurk in the shadows. It may not be enough to consider lineup changes, but you know what they say about assumptions....
|Josh Johnson, QB, TB vs. NE defense
||Johnson's mobility will give the Patriots fits; oh, the game won't be close, but Johnson will put up attractive line in blowout.
|Cedric Benson, RB, CIN vs. CHI run defense
||Many of the Bears don't like Benson ... Wonder why? They'll make sure he doesn't exact his revenge against Chicago.
|Larry Johnson, RB, KC vs. SD run defense
||LJ goes off for the first time in '09, initiating a run of occasionally productive weeks and proving that he's still semi-useful.
|Vernon Davis, TE, SF vs. Brian Cushing, LB, HOU
||Rook from USC has helped shut down TEs; Davis will be targeted less with Frank Gore returning, Michael Crabtree signed.
|Danny Amendola, WR, STL vs. IND DBs
||Watch this undrafted frosh from Texas Tech; Colts give up underneath stuff, especially when they're up big.
