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....
|Alex D. Smith, QB, SF vs. Seattle Seahawks
||Too easy? This week, play Smith instead of ... just about anyone.
|Rock Cartwright, RB, WAS vs. New Orleans Saints
||Letdown or no, the Rock should be cookin' up a few things for N'Awlins in the passing game.
|Jacoby Jones, WR, HOU vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
||Sneaky flex play! Steve Slaton (neck) won't go, leaving a few balls for others - like this TD maker.
|John Carlson, TE, SEA vs. San Francisco 49ers
||Slump busters: San Fran's pass D and Seattle's slowly improved line play.
|Jerome Harrison, RB, CLE vs. San Diego Chargers
||Maybe not this week, but soon ... and probably this week: The Browns will be down; Harrison catches the ball.
