Stink Palmer has been solid at times, but I actually like Wilson more.
WIlson wasn't a good start at home against AZ. The cardinal defense is actually decent, it's the offense that turns the ball over and can't move the ball. Seattle's defense is relentless at home and he wouldn't need to do much.
Wilson has put up better numbers on the road because he has to do more. The whole team doesn't play as well, so he throws more, and Buffalo's defense is nothing to be scared of.
Rice is an obvious start. Charles and Murray are tossups. Charles has more upside, but can put up a dudd (not likely in this one though).
Garrett likes to pass, so he runs out of necessity in order to set up the pass. The pass game has setup the RBs inside the 5 repeatedly for the past month or so. I'd expect Murray to get a score though. Still would go with Charles for upside. You're in the playoffs, so your opponent probably has a pretty good team.
Vincent Jackson is going to have a huge game. You're lucky to have him this week. You survived his crappy games for a 20-30 pt performance. Jackson gets nothing if he has a shutdown corner on him, but the Saints have the worst pass def in the league.
Cobb is definitely a start if Nelson doesn't go, but I would start him anyways. He's been targeted repeatedly for months.
I'd go DHB over Maclin. Foles only threw so much last week because Tampa's rush defense is the best in the league. Expect more balance this week. DHB could easily pull a donut though. Streeter, Myers, and Reece may eat up his targets.
If you're looking for a waiver TE, Tony Scheffler is worth a look. That Durham guy is no good and Pettigrew may not play. Broyles and Young are on IR.
I think Cincy's defense leads the league in sacks, ao they're a good start vs. a terrible O-Line.
Kicker is a crapshoot. stick with Prater or I'd look at Bironas or Phil Dawson. Crosby may be worth a look. Chicago's defense may be able to stall them, and the coach isn't afraid to send him out for 50+.
Take a look at my thread if you get the chance.
