Week 3 UPS
Andy Dalton – Washington hasn’t been great and they just lost two starters for the year.
Cam Newton – The Giants will be on the road and are likely to be confused at the different grass let alone routes being run at them.
Mike Bush – Taking the bulk of the snaps with Forte out and gets a friendly start at home vs. the Rams.
Andre Brown – Assuming Bradshaw is out Wilson has fumbled too much for goal line work and Panthers can be run on.
Andrew Hawkins – see above regarding the Redskins injuries and a Rams offense putting up 31 on them.
Brandon LaFell – At home against a Giants secondary that couldn’t cover a tack with all the textiles in Chin…oh their just bad and I’m still a bitter Pat’s fan.
Brandon Pettigrew – Titans allowing the most Tight End success.
Peyton Manning – In for a struggle against a stingy Texans D that used to see this guy twice a year.
Josh Freeman – Has an away game against a Dallas defense that has been very good against the pass.
Shonn Greene – a stingy Miami run defense at home in a division game has the edge.
Adrian Peterson – If Indy was a tough run last week then San Francisco this week will be something written by Wes Craven.
Ced Benson – Has an away game in Seattle where the ground is quicksand for away backs.
Vincent Jackson – Top receivers have been on milk cartons against the ‘Boys D this year.
Victor Cruz – The Panthers have held all the wide outs they have seen under 50 yards.
Jacob Tamme – Houston has been one of the best against the Tight End and they have also seen this guy plenty before.
