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....
|Tony Gonzalez, TE, ATL vs. Manny Lawson, LB, SF
||Three straight weeks of duds (at NE, bye week, now at SF) from one of fantasy's top TEs.
|Matt Cassel, QB, KC vs. DAL pass defense
||His top target is healthy, and DAL can't stop the aerial game. Cassel should go for 250 and 2 TDs.
|Josh Morgan, WR, SF vs. ATL pass defense
||He's starting to come around. Maybe the signing of the '09 No. 10 pick will light a fire under him, too.
|Deion Branch, WR, SEA vs. JAX pass defense
||Not-so-special player now overlooked. A sneaky PPR play against the Jags' horrible pass D.
|Randy McMichael, TE, STL vs. MIN pass defense
||TEs have gone off vs. the Vikes. Rams' depth at WR decreases with each day, aiding McMike's cause.
