by Tim Heaney on October 9, 2009 @ 20:00:00 PDT


Which matchups can make or break fantasy seasons?

Key Matchup Reason
Randy Moss, WR, NE vs. Champ Bailey, CB, DEN Champ injured when Moss torched DEN last; Moss has had problems with elite CBs
Tony Gonzalez, TE, ATL vs. Manny Lawson, OLB, SF SS Michael Lewis will add to SF's solid TE D to contain new focus of ATL aerial attack
Austin Collie, WR, IND vs. TEN secondary Titans DBs banged up; expect slot rook to build on blooming rapport with Peyton Manning
Brandon Pettigrew, TE, DET vs. Tyrone Carter, SS, PIT Troy Boy out again; Pettigrew a favorite target regardless of QB; PIT favorable matchup
Leon Washington, RB, NYJ vs. Channing Crowder, ILB, MIA Angst brewing since NCAA; Jets will run often to rein in Mark Sanchez on the road
