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....
|Chris Simms, QB, DEN vs. San Diego Chargers
||Don't expect a papa-like performance, but you'll be amazed by what a full week of practice running with the top unit will do.
|Brian Leonard, RB, CIN vs. Oakland Raiders
||In PPR leagues, not-so-special-yet-versatile Rutgers grad will be an unexpected and unheralded factor vs. OAK.
|Leonard Weaver, RB, PHI vs. Chicago Bears
||Brian Westbrook's absence obviously benefits the real LeSean McCoy, but Weaver's work goes up, too, and he's a load.
|Kelley Washington, WR, BAL vs. Indianapolis Colts
||Indy gives up plenty of short and intermediate stuff. It sounds like Todd Heap will sit. Washington sneaks in some PPR hugs.
|Deion Branch, WR, SEA vs. Minnesota Vikings
||Branch takes the torch in the "No. 3 receivers to make a modest to good impact in PPR leagues against Minny" relay this week.
