Start: QB Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles
To our dismay last Sunday, Nick Foles continues to ride his unprecedented hot-streak of late in the Eagles' four-game win streak, and today they take on the Detroit Lions and their abysmal pass defense. So I'll say this: Ride Nick Foles.
Sit: QB Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers
Kaepernick is enjoying a little bit of a renaissance of late, but expect that to end today. Despite seeing his main weapons return from long-term injury, they aren't playing at full-speed, couple that with a match-up against the Seattle Seahawks, doesn't give a positive outlook for Kaepernick owners.
Start: RB DeMarco Murray, Dallas Cowboys
Murray is off the back of a 100-total yard, three touchdown game last week, and he couldn't ask for a better match-up this week. He faces the depleted Chicago Bears who absolutely cannot stop the run. The Cowboys would be wise to feed Murray on first, second and third down today.
Sit: RB Zac Stacy, St Louis Rams
Stacy has been a fantasy bargain this season giving RB1 production from the waiver wire, but the Rams face a stout Cardinals defense who are second in the league against the run. If you can avoid starting Stacy, then do so.
Start: WR Michael Floyd, Arizona Cardinals
Only one player has more receiving yards in the last three weeks than Michael Floyd, and that's Josh Gordon. Floyd ha emerged in the past month as the top target in the Bruce Arians passing attack, and with a nice match-up against the Rams secondary, expect Floyd to go near 100-yards again.
Sit: WR Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
In his season-debut last week, Crabtree had a promising catch-and-run for 60-yards which will give Niners fans hope, but let's face it, he wasn't close to 100% and is still a few weeks away from game-time speed. He will probably be shadowed by Richard Sherman all game, which doesn't bode well.
Start: TE Jared Cook, St Louis Rams
We all remember how Cook torched us in the season opener, which would set the tone for the rest of the season. The Cardinals' inability to cover tight ends would likely spell a decent fantasy outing for Jared Cook.
Sit: TE Jordan Cameron, Cleveland Browns
Since Week 8, the week Jason Campbell took the reigns for the Browns, Cameron is 31st in tight end scoring. He goes up against the New England Patriots who have done a great job of eliminating opposing tight ends.
Start: D/ST Oakland Raiders
You wouldn't normally start the Raiders D, but they play Geno Smith this week, who does nothing but turn the ball over. There is a good chance he's pulled again for Matt Simms, which only presents more opportunities for the inept Jets offense to turn the ball over.
Sit: D/ST Miami Dolphins
Not that the Dolphins are a bad group, they have a great nucleus of talent there, but they play the resurgent Steelers offense today. Big Ben is playing some fantastic ball the past month or so, and opposing defenses have scored four combined points against the Steelers in the last four weeks.
