I am going to do things a little different this week. I am going to give you individual players to take a look at that have very good matchups versus looking at the entire game.
I am going to focus on more sleeper situations then telling you to start Brees, Brady and other top players.
Eli Manning against a soft pass secondary in the Packers. Nicks has a concussion though and Manningham is battling a swollen knee.  if Nicks can't go then Cruz is a WR# 1 this week and Mannnigham, who should play, will get WR #2 looks. Check the status of these players before kickoff.
Tony Romo against a weak pass defense in the Cardinals. I don't think that Austin will be back this week but it won't matter. Romo has a new secret weapon in the red zone with the last name of Robinson.
 I have Romo as a top 4 QB this week. Plus, the Cowboys will be rested.
Miami QB Matt Moore will surprise again this week when he goes after the Raider secondary which allows almost 22 points a game to opposing quarterbacks which is near the bottom of the league.
The Dolphin defense, which is playing very well the last few weeks, will be a factor in this game as well.
QB Matt Hasselbeck has a prime matchup against the self-destructing Bills who give up more that 20 fantasy points a game to opposing QB's as well as a whopping 21 touchdowns through the air. Only the Vikings have given up more touchdowns.
Running Backs:
L. Blount has the Panthers, who give up the most fantasy points a game to running backs and have given up a horrific 12 touchdowns on the ground. Tied with Colts and the Bucs for worst in the league.
Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart against the Bucs awful run defense. Both are only worth flex picks since they share the carries. I like Stewart over Williams in PPR leagues though.
Frank Gore will pound the Rams, who give up over 22 fantasy points a game to opposing running backs.
Chris Johnson. It's hard to make a safe prediction but he is in the middle of an easy run towards the end of the season. He plays the Bills, who give up over 20 fantasy points a game to opposing running backs.
This is just too good to pass up.
Ben- Jarvus -Green- Ellis is worth a flex against the Colts,who give up over 24 points a game to opposing running backs.
Wide Receivers
Laurent Robinson's amazing rise will go largely unoticed due to the emergence of Tim Tebow who is getting all of the press. But the Cowboys are grateful and he should perform well again against a Cardinal defense that gives up over 23 fantasy points a game to opposing receivers.
If Austin plays, flex Robinson. If Austin sits, then play Robinson who becomes a safe WR #2 in PPR this week.
Michael Crabtree is a borderline WR # 1 play in PPR this week at home versus the Rams who have given up 14 touchdowns through the air. That is just a situation too ripe not to take advantage of.
Any New England receiver against the Colts. The only question is, who will have the record day??????
Victor Cruz against  a cheesehead Packer secondary that has turned into vanilla ice cream for opposing receivers.
Yes we have a Johnny Knox sighting! But will it last with Hanie throwing to him? He is worth a flex this week especially with his recent production rise.
Defensive team start no brainers:
Pittsburgh, Chicago, Jets, San Francisco, and New England.
Good Luck!
