by Bryce McRae on September 11, 2009 @ 00:00:00 PDT


Temper your expectations for a pair of first-round fantasy picks. That isn't the case for the other three listed below

Key Matchup Reason
Greg Olsen, TE, CHI vs. Packers linebackers GB will need to give plenty of help to LBs Aaron Kampman, Brady Poppinga
Steven Jackson, RB, vs. Seahawks front seven STL line still gelling; 'Hawks will stack box to force Rams to throw
Donnie Avery, WR, vs. Ken Lucas, CB, SEA Rams will take their shots; Lucas is physical but might be a step slow for DA
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, vs. Nate Clements, CB, SF Fitz had his 2 worst games against Clements last year; subpar start for Fitzgerald?
Chansi Stuckey, WR, vs. Texans secondary HOU secondary down CB Reeves, Wilson; No. 2 wideout could find holes
