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....
|Michael Turner, RB, ATL vs. CHI front 7
||Sit a guy who just scored 3 TDs? Last year vs. CHI: 25 att., 54 yds., no TDs. Bears may sell out here.
|Clinton Portis, RB, WAS vs. KC front 7
||Not out of the woods just because he scored twice vs. CAR. Chiefs close holes faster than expected.
|Cadillac Williams, RB, TB vs. CAR front 7
||Big week in store for the Caddy vs. gutted DL; expect at least Week 1 or Week 2 numbers in PPR.
|Kevin Walter, WR, HOU vs. CIN CBs
||Fellow editor Cory J. Bonini points out interesting tidbit: complementary WRs have hit jackpot vs. Bengals.
|Jeremy Shockey, TE, NO vs. NYG LB and S
||Might be a little extra incentive for Shockey in this one; TEs have done well vs. Giants in most weeks.
